A few enterprising shots from K Gowtham but it was way beyond his reach always. KXIP finish with 143/8 and the Mumbai Indians win by 48 runs

Boult to Bishnoi: OUT
Another one bites the dust. It’s all happening in slow motion now. No reaction from Boult, the bowler. In fact no real reaction from any lof the MI players. Ravi Bishnoi takes the long walk back. This match is now a formality only.
Pattinson to Sarfaraz: OUT
Three reds! The original decision stays. James Pattinson has got the wicket of Sarfaraz Khan. Mumbai Indians are closing out this game in a hurry.
Boult to Sarfaraz: FOUR
A reverse slap? What do you call that one? Terrific innovation from Sarfaraz Khan. He’s known for this sweeps, laps and paddles and pulls one off against Trent Boult. Can he do a miracle for KXIP tonight?
Bumrah to Neesham: OUT
OUT! It was high full toss from Jasprit Bumrah Neesham didn’t get power on it. It lobbed up in the air for a simple catch to Suryakumar Yadav. It’s a one-way traffic towards MI now.

Brilliant over from Krunal Pandya. Oh he was under some pressure coming into this come and he has now delivered a very good performance. 4 over 1 for 27 today. Pressure mounting on KXIP now.
Bumrah to Pooran: FOUR
Pulled away with conviction. A nothing delivery to be honest from Bumrah. It was neither short nor on a good length. It just sat up for Pooran to use his power.
Chahar to Pooran: SIX
How far how far? Far enough. Nicholas Pooran can hit the big. It was the slog sweep again. Chahar flighted that one, Pooran was waiting for it and he, launched into it.
Rahul Chahar to Nicholas Pooran: MI lose DRS
The third umpire took ages to decide whether there was an edge in it or not and when he finally did conclude that there was nothing, the ball tracking showed the ball had pitched outside leg. So the decision stays and Nicholas Pooran survives,.That was mighty close on the naked eye.

Krunal Pandya to Karun Nair: OUT
BOWLED! Chopped it on to his stumps. The Mumbai Indians are storming back into this match. It was not there to play cut shot, was a bit too close to the off stump and Nair paid the price. He got an inside back on to his stumps, Krunal Pandya strikes KXIP: 41/2 at the end of the powerplay.
Jasprit Bumrah to Mayank Agarwal: OUT
BOWLED’em! Straight through and Bumrah has gone through the defences of Mayank Agarwal. He just a bit late on that didn’t he Agarwal? And Bumrah is ecstatic. A good comeback from MI. KXIP 38 for 1 after 5 overs.

Good start for Krunal Pandya, a very good one actually. The first over without a boundary in the KXIP innings so far. 4 runs from it.
Boult to Agarwal: FOUR
Silky touch from Mayank Agarwal. There was a deep point in place, he knew that.

KXIP are off and running at 33 for no loss after 3 overs.

6 overs. 104 runs
Mumbai Indians have hammered 104 runs in 6 overs. This is sensational hitting from Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya.
Mohammed Shami on winning Purple Cap
“I was just putting the ball in right areas. In the T20 format you have to be good with your yorkers, but I am also focussing on the slower balls in this season,” says KXIP seamer Mohammed Shami.
IPL 2020 MI vs KXIP live: End of MI innings
Another six to end the innings. Kieron Pollard completes a hat-trick of sixes, four sixes in the Gowtham over. Mumbai Indians finish with 191 for 4 after their 20 overs.
Kieron Pollard hits consecutive sixes
SIX, SIX!Pollard joins the party. He dragged that way outside off stump and when Gowtham tries to compensate, Pollard goes over long on to collect back-to-back sixes.
Gowtham to Pandya: SIX
HUGE! It was always going to be a risk to bowl a spinner in the last over. Gowtham misses his mark and Pandya just whacks it over deep mid wicket for a six.
Shami to Pollard: FOUR, FOUR
Kieron Pollard finishes the Shami over with two boundaries, 19 runs coming from it. Mumbai Indians are having a dream finish to the innings courtesy Pollard and Pandya. MI 166/4 after 19 overs.
Shami to Pollard: FOUR
Unlucky there Shami. It was a perfect yorker but Pollard got an outside edge and flew towards the vacant third man region for a boundary.
150 up for MI
FOUR! Hardik Pandya has upper cut Mohammed Shami for a boundary. No third man there so this will always be a safe shot to play. Shami tried a double bluff actually there but Pandya was up for it.
Hardik Pandya takes Neesham apart
The six was followed by a couple and back-to-back boundaries. Hardik Pandya shows exactly why is a dangerous customer at the back end of an innings. 18 runs of Jimmy Neesham’s over. Last 2 overs coming up with MI at 147/4.
Neesham to Pandya: SIX
WHAT A SHOT! That was a straight six off the backfoot. Boy, he’s a talented cricketer this Hardik Pandya. It was back of a length delivery from Neesham, Pandya stands tall and uses his reach to hit it straight over the bowler’s head.
DRS saves Pollard
Inside edge! The umpire will have to reverse his decision. Pollard went for the review straightaway. That is generally an indication that the batsman is certain to have got something on it. It was a superb yorker from Shami, a proper toe-crusher. 17 overs bowled, MI 129 for 4.
Shami to Rohit: OUT
A very good catch by Glenn Maxwell and Jimmy Neesham. It was a tag team effort at the long off boundary. We have gone upstairs to check the decision and the third umpire seems certain that the catch is clean. Shami has got the big wicket of Rohit Sharma. What an innings by the MI captain, he goes for 70.
Mohammed Shami back into the attack
KL Rahul has thrown the ball to his best bowler Mohammed Shami. He will bowl the two overs of the remaining four.
Neesham to Rohit: FOUR, SIX, FOUR
A full toss that was driven through covers for a four and then it was followed by a flick shot over square leg for six. When Neesham went outside off, Rohit hit it inside out for a four. Fasten your seat belts guys, Rohit Sharma is on the charge.
Rohit Sharma gets to fifty
FOUR! A ramp shot past fine-leg, FIFTY for Rohit Sharma. It hasn’t been the dominating Rohit innings but it has been an important one nonetheless. He needs to bat deep and take MI over 160.
Bishnoi to Rohit: SIX
It was nowhere near the middle of the bat but such is the class of Rohit Sharma that it sails over the mid-wicket boundary. Young Ravi Bishnoi has been hit for two sixes in the over, 15 runs coming from it. MI: 102/3 after 15 overs. (Highlights of 15 overs)
Bishnoi to Pollard: SIX
Pressure right on Ravi Bishnoi straightaway. Kieron Pollard uses the long handle and deposits it deep into the stands for his first six. He’s just warming up folks!
Gowtham to Kishan: OUT
K Gowtham puts and end to Ishan Kishan’s misery. He goes for 28 off 32 balls. It was a struggle throughout for Kishan today. He wanted to slog sweep it over mid wicket but is holed out in the deep.
Sheldon Cottrell bowls out
Only 3 runs from it. Sheldon Cottrell has bowled out. A terrific spell by the left-arm seamer. 4 overs 20 and the wicket of Quinton De Kock in it.
IPL live score, 12 overs bowled
A decent one from Jimmy Neesham, no boundaries in it. The Mumbai Indians need a move on now. They are 80 for 2 after 12 overs. And looks like Sheldon Cottrell has been brought back into the attack for the 13th over.
Bishnoi drops Ishan Kishan
DROPPED! Ravi Bishnoi did all the hard to get there, got both hands to it but it just popped out as soon as his knees made contact with the ground. Ishan Kishan should consider himself very lucky.
50 partnership between Rohit and Kishan
A huge six over mid-wicket from Ishan Kishan’s bat, this might just be the push he needs tonight. A very good over for MI, 11 runs off it. Bishnoi slightly off his mark. 50 partnership also for Rohit and Kishan. MI: 73/2 after 11 overs.
10 overs bowled
4 runs from K Gowtham over. 10 overs have been bowled. Mumbai Indians are 61 for 2 with Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan in the crease. (Highlights of the first 10 overs)
Ishan Kishan struggling for timing
Cricket is funny game. Kishan put the RCB bowlers to the cleaners, slammed 99 but today he seems to be struggling with the timing. He is 14 off 21 balls now. But for a quality player like him, it shouldn’t take much time to get going.
Bishnoi to Rohit - FOUR!
FOUR! Fantastic shot from Rohit Sharma as he mercilessly times that ball towards the covers. He is looking in the best nick at the moment. Good start.
50 up for Mumbai Indians
Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan have taken Mumbai pas the 50-run mark in the 9th over. This is a crucial partnership for MI and these two need to stick it out in the middle till the end.
KXIP vs MI Highlights: First 5 overs
Rohit joins IPL elite club. Shami gets a direct hit and Sheldon Cottrell made a comeback. Here are all the highlights of the first 5 overs.
Neesham makes a good start
Jimmy Neesham was brought into the attack for the seventh over of the innings and he made a good start, giving away just 6 runs from the over. Rohit Sharma was lucky to get a boundary off the outside edge, which would have carried straight to the second slip had there been one. Mumbai Indian are 47/2 after 7 overs
K Gowtham into the attack - FOUR! FOUR!
K Gowtham is into the attack in place of Ravi Bishnoi. And he gets punished. Rohit Sharma hits him for two back-to-boundaries. Just a tad bit short of length, Rohit gives himself room, hits it late. This is poetry in motion.
Good comeback from Cottrell
Sheldon Cottrell was hit for two boundaries in the previous over and has bowled quite beautifully in this one. He keeps fixing his lines. Learning player.

Mumbai Indians have been quite careful in managing Hardik Pandya’s workload and the allrounder has not been given the ball yet. But Zaheer Khan had hinted that he would definitely bowl in the tournament at some stage. Will we see Pandya bowl today?
OUR TAKE: Who will win between Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians?
Karan Prashant Saxena: I think this match is quite evenly balanced as Kings XI Punjab have a great batting line-up, while Mumbai Indians have a great bowling line-up. Abu Dhabi is a slow, treacherous, large ground. The batsmen need to settle in and take their time to get going. I think this match is tilted in Mumbai’s favour, as they have one of the best bowling units in IPL 2020. Jasprit Bumrah, James Pattinson, Trent Boult and add spinners Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar - I like KL Rahul, but I think KXIP will struggle today.
Aritra Mukherjee: This will be a great contest. I’m personally very excited to see KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal face Trent Boult, James Pattinson and Jasprit Bumrah. As far as picking a side for today, I’d go with MI because they are not depended on any 2-3 players, unlike KXIP. I actually want to see how the KXIP middle order react if Rahul and Mayank don’t get them off to a flier.

Points to consider
The Abu Dhabi stadium is quite larger as compared to the ones at Sharjah and Dubai - and hence the spinners will be playing a crucial role for both the teams. This might make Kings XI Punjab go for Mujeeb ur Rahman in place of Sheldon Cottrell. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians have the advantage of having played two games in Abu Dhabi before this, while it is Kings XI Punjab’s first game at the venue.

KXIP vs MI Live Score: Shane Bond speaks
Mumbai Indians bowling coach Shane Bond spoek before the match: “KL Rahul, he’s got runs against us in the last few games as well...We know he’s a dynamic player, scores all around the field. We also know that he takes his time generally through the middle overs, so that’s perhaps an opportunity - if he gets that far - to create some pressure on him and the batsmen in and around him. But we will have specific ideas of how we’re going to get him out. In the end, we just can’t allow him to score in areas where he’s very strong. He scores well over extra cover, the pick-up over fine leg.” - MI bowling coach Shane Bond
Rohit Sharma two runs away from huge IPL milestone
