The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) defeated the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the ninth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Mohali. The first home game is always important for a team and the Punjab side breezed past the visitors easily, in the end, thanks to a brilliant knock from KL Rahul well assisted by Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal. This win has propelled the KXIP into the top four and they will love to be consistent.

After losing the toss, Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock gave the team a very good start. Both of them played their shots in the powerplay. However, the former was the first to perish but not before scoring 32 off just 18 deliveries. But De Kock was the one who gave an impetus to the innings with a brilliant 60-run knock. He got out at the wrong time though and the home team took control of the proceedings.

Hardik Pandya, much like the last match, once again played a crucial knock for MI and propelled the team’s total to 176 runs for the loss of seven wickets after 20 overs.

Rahul anchors the chase

Chris Gayle was the one to start going after the bowlers in the powerplay even as KL Rahul struggled miserably. But the Universe Boss’ assault of 40 runs off just 24 balls helped him to keep his cool. Mayank Agarwal was playing the innings of his life on the day. He just hammered the ball with utter disdain while he was there in the middle. Agarwal literally smashed 43 runs off 21 deliveries and his stay at the crease was a delight for the crowd.

The best thing for the KXIP was that they didn’t let the momentum slip away at any point in the chase. By the time, Agarwal got out, Rahul had got his eyes well and truly in and he unfurled some beautiful to finally announce himself on the big stage. Despite Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah trying their best in the last few overs, the KXIP cantered to victory in the penultimate over as Mumbai lost their second match of the season.
