IPL 2020, KXIP vs MI Highlights: Mumbai Indian (MI) beat Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by 48 runs.

Batting first, MI posted 191/4 in 20 overs after a captain’s knock from Rohit Sharma (70) and a strong finish from Kieron Pollard (47*) and Hardik Pandya (30*), who added 62 runs from the last three overs of the innings. Rohit became the third person — after Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli — to reach 5000 runs in IPL history. Rohit kept losing partners as KXIP kept picking wickets regularly. They crossed the 100-run mark in the 15th over, and then shifted gears, with Pollard and Pandya taking over after Rohit’s wicket. KL Rahul (17) and Mayank Agarwal (25) got off to a strong start but KXIP were pegged back by Jasprit Bumrah and MI’s spinners. Nicholas Pooran (44) put on a counter-attack, but with his wicket, there was a slide of wickets, as the KXIP innings ended with 143/8.
