Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab IPL 2020: Hello and welcome to our coverage of MI vs KXIP live IPL match from Dubai. Defending Champions Mumbai Indian will look to seal the playoffs berth in the clash against KXIP on Sunday. Mumbai Indians have steamrolled opposition teams with an explosive batting line-up complemented by a lethal bowling attack and the latest side to bear their brunt were the Kolkata Knight Riders who suffered an eight-wicket defeat on Friday. Table-toppers MI boast of top batsmen such as captain Rohit Sharma (251 runs) and his opening partner Quinton de Kock (269) and both are in good touch, while the middle-order is manned by the likes of Suryakumar Yadav (243 runs) and Ishan Kishan (186 runs).
