Here are all the statistical highlights from Mumbai Indians’ record victory against Kings XI Punjab.
Mumbai Indians bounced back from a Super over defeat to RCB by trashing Kings XI Punjab by a record 48-run margin. This victory has helped the defending champions to climb on to the top of the points table. Rohit Sharma’s 45-ball 70 at the top despite a slow start was boosted by Kieron Pollard (47* off 20) and Hardik Pandya (30* off 11) as MI team finished with 191/4 in their 20 overs. Expect for the first three overs, the Kings XI never looked like chasing down the big total and hence finished with only 143/8.
