Kings XI Punjab VS Mumbai Indians IPL 5 at Mohali

The Indian Premier League (IPL) : Today the match begins with Kings XI Punjab clashing with Mumbai Indians at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali. In this round of back-to-back matches, Kings XI livened up the tournament with their win over Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium.

Mumbai Indians : Mumbai lost two in a row, injuries to Lasith Malinga and Herschelle Gibbs. The overseas batting options, barring perhaps Gibbs, are not automatic picks given there being plenty of strength in the Indian contingent, but the performance of James Franklin at the top of the order is a welcome development for them.

The good news is sachin is back in the team, he scored 23 run last match. He's the batting strength of Mumbai Indians team. Franklin, Rayudu, Rohit Sharma, Pollard big names in the team. Rohit Sharma's last-ball six off Daniel Christian to win Mumbai Indians a thrilling game against Deccan Chargers was his highlight of the season so far. Hope to see again this six at Mohali also.

Kings XI Punjab : Kings XI did well in the absence of Adam Gilchrist, who is yet to recover completely from a hamstring injury, with openers Mandeep Singh and Nitin Saini giving them a good start in the chase. showing how the clamour for a place in the final four is getting more intense.

Their strength is a powerful middle order that includes Shaun Marsh, David Hussey and Azhar Mahmood and being the seniors in the side.Parvinder Awana has bowled with good pace, got the ball to move both ways and kept things tight while opening the bowling. On the other hand chawla & Parvenn kumar bowled well against Mimbai. Interestng to see again today.
