Hello readers, How are you peeps doing?
I welcome you back again to another post. This time it is about Match number 36 Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab.
Don’t worry, I’ll mention a lot of info in this one about MI vs KXIP 2020.
Let’s talk about Mumbai Indians. MI played their recent match against KKR. KKR won the toss and decided to bat first. MI managed to take early wickets but failed to take wickets later on. They made sure that the team of KKR not score runs. Rahul Chahar took 2 wickets and Boult and Bumrah took 1 wicket each. Economy rate was less than for Chahar & Bumrah. KKR made 148 in 20 overs.
Batting was extraordinary for MI as they scored runs with ease. Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma played well. de Kock scored 78 not out and Rohit scored 35. They chased the target in 16.5 overs and lost only 2 wickets. Quinton was player of the match.
Kings XI Punjab have shown great performance in IPL 2020. Even though they were unlucky that they are at number 8 position in this season of IPL. KXIP played their previous match against RCB. RCB scored 171 runs in their quota of 20 overs. Virat Kohli scored 48 that made pressure on opponent team. Later on cameo by Chris Morris help them reach 171. Murugan Ashwin and Shami took 2 wickets each and that helped Punjab restrict RCB.
Batting second KXIP showed the intent of winning this match as KL Rahul & Mayank Aggarwal started of the inning in blazing style. KL Rahul 61 not out, Mayank Aggarwal 45 and then Chris Gayle 53 made sure that KXIP win. But the suspense was until the last ball where Chahal was the bowler and Punjab needed run of the last ball with new batsman on strike. In this innings KXIP only lost 2 wickets. KL Rahul was named player of the match.

MI vs KXIP Pitch & Weather Report | 18th October 2020
The day will be humid and will be hot too. UAE’s weather have been testing the strength and stamina of players. Another day to check the strength. Only relief will be the wind blowing during the night.
Pitches are becoming really slow with every game played. Batsmen if take time to settle and then hit big shots then they can be successful. Bowlers with variations and Spinners will be getting the benefits from the pitch.
MI vs KXIP Toss Prediction | 18th October 2020
The ground is big. So getting boundaries will be difficult in the second half as the ball will come slow to the bat. But captains are worried about dew factor more than the above reason. So I think that team batting first will have an advantage of scoring runs much easier than the team batting second. In second half the bowlers will have trouble in gripping the ball. So there’s that. Therefore the team winning the toss should look to bat first. But captains are doing things the other way round.
