Bottom dwellers Punjab take on a confident Mumbai

Oct 18, 2020 18:15 IST

In their quest to keep their IPL campaign alive, bottom placed Kings XI Punjab take on a confident Mumbai Indians in second game of a super Sunday in Dubai. Punjab which has managed just 2 wins from its 8 games so far with the 2nd coming in their previous encounter, need to win remaining 6 games in order to qualify for the playoffs on their own. Mumbai on the other hand are on a 5-match winning streak, breaking which will be tough for the Kings XI. However, Punjab now also have the services of Chris Gayle who made an impact in the very first game that he played. History though backs Mumbai as it enjoys a 14-11 head-to-head record against Punjab. Moreover, they have beaten Kings XI in 4 of the previous 5 encounters. KL Rahul's men though wouldn't be concerned about the past and would fight for survival.
