The Indian Premier League extravaganza will reach Punjab tomorrow when Kings XI Punjab will play host to Mumbai Indians at PCA Cricket Stadium. Kings XI Punjab will look to maintain their winning run in front of their home crowd while the visitors will be prepared for another epic encounter. We can expect an intriguing contest when these two teams will battle it out in Mohali.

Kings XI Punjab started their IPL campaign with a victory against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur. Ashwin & Co played some brilliant cricket to breach the fortress of the Royals, and they would be hoping for the same kind of dominating performance heading into their first home game. Chris Gayle announced his arrival with a scintillating knock in the opening match however he failed to make a mark in the next game against the Knight Riders. Their bowling department will learn a lesson or two after a forgettable outing at Kolkata where the hosts conceded 218 runs.

On the contrary, Mumbai Indians must be flying high after their controversial win last night. The Blue army registered their first victory in this edition of IPL courtesy some exceptional death bowling by Bumrah & Malinga. The iconic duo only gave 15 runs in the final two overs to take their team over the line by six runs. Rohit Sharma 48(33) led his team from the front with the bat while Hardik Pandya 32(14) provided a much-needed late flourish to post a defendable total on the board. Mumbai Indians would be eyeing for another win when they collide with Punjab franchise in the upcoming match.
