19 Oct 2020 KXIP beat MI as IPL witnesses two Super Overs for first-time Written by Rajdeep Saha Sports

They have been in rampaging form with five straight wins but Mumbai Indians can ill afford to be complacent against a Chris Gayle-inspired Kings XI Punjab on Sunday.

Earlier at Dubai, AB de Villiers smashed four sixes in the last two overs and earned Royal Challengers Bangalore a seven-wicket win against unimpressive Rajasthan Royals. In fact, their position in the team standings doesn't really replicate their performance.

The IPL 2020 Match 36 between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab will begin at 7:30 pm IST or 6:00 pm local time. KXIP's 2nd win came against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous game. However, AB de Villiers had something else in mind as he began to hit huge sixes. from almost 15 runs an over, Royal Challengers Bangalore needed just 10 runs of the last over to win the match.

Dhawan was twice dropped in the 20s and, soon after completing his half century, survived again when Chennai captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni couldn't hold onto a low edge.

The 34-year-old bossed Rajasthan's best opening partnership of the season of 50, which ended when Stokes gloved Morris behind on the pull.

RCB had to score 35 runs off the last two overs and ABD turned it on and did it in some style. I play with courage. Sanju Samson then joined Uthappa in the middle and the duo looked good until Yuzvendra Chahal spun a web and sent both the batsmen back in the dugout on consecutive balls.

Kohli, for his part, said, "The individuals are stepping up and we've been done that all through the tournament, which is why we have 12 points". But he also fell to Chahal, taken at long-off by Morris as RR slipped to 69 for three after a good start. Universe Boss Chris Gayle tried to support his skipper KL Rahul but soon got out while playing at 24 runs.

There were sixes galore in the IPL on Saturday.

Well, RCB chased down the target of 178 after AB De Villiers remained unbeaten on 55 off 22 balls with one four and as many as six sixes.

Pollard and Pandya managed to help Mumbai to 11 runs in their second stint at the crease but Gayle struck a massive six off Trent Boult's bowling to swing the tide in KXIP's favour.

When RCB were struggling to even get close to RR's total of 177, AB de Villiers brought his "A-game" and smoked 55 not-out off 22 deliveries laced by six 6s and a boundary. "Family watching, fans, all those things play a big part", said de Villiers in the post-match presentation. Luckily I got a couple over and made him nervous. He finished the game in style, hitting Jofra Archer for a maximum with two balls still to go.
