IPL: Rampant Mumbai Indians beat misfiring Kings XI to stretch log lead

2010-03-31 00:00

THE rampant Mumbai Indians stretched their lead atop the IPL standings to four points yesterday, as they beat Kings XI Punjab by four wickets, with three balls to spare.

Punjab switched around their mis-firing top-order, and Australian Shaun Marsh responded with 57 at the top of the order.

But there was little in the way of support, and the Kings XI settled for 163 in their 20 overs.

Sachin Tendulkar and Shikhar Dhawan started in a hurry, and though the little master didn’t last long, Dhawan’s 50 off 40 balls went a long way to settling the contest.

Mumbai Indians 164 for 6 (Dhawan 50, Tiwary 31) beat Kings XI Punjab 163 (Marsh 57, Malinga 4-22) by four wickets.
