Two-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will look to continue their sublime run when they take on struggling Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Holkar Stadium on Thursday.

Sitting in second spot with four wins in five matches, Mumbai seemed superior on the current form and paper as in contrast, Punjab have lost their last three matches in the league. The only concern that will bother Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai is their top-order, which has drastically failed to give the good starts in the cash-rich tournament so far. However, Mumbai's middle-order batsmen, especially Nitish Rana, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya, have been in their prime form.

Returning from an eight-wicket drubbing at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Kings XI Punjab will face a daunting task when they take on a resurgent Delhi Daredevils (DD) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 match at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday.

Skipper Glenn Maxwell's belligerent 20-ball unbeaten 44 helped Kings XI Punjab start their 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign with a six-wicket win over Rising Pune SupergiantĀ a Holkar Stadium on Saturday. Maxwell, along with South African David Miller (30 from 27 balls), raised an unbeaten 79-run fifth wicket stand to guide Punjab to safety with six balls to spare.

Chasing a decent 164, medium pacer Ashoke Dinda, guilty for leaking 30 runs in the final over against Mumbai Indians, mended his ways and provided the early breakthrough for Pune with the wicket of opener Manan Vohra, who smacked him for a massive six, four balls earlier.

It was supposed to be a dead rubber that would only determine which side would be left holding the wooden spoon, but Pune Skipper MS Dhoni made it a game to remember for fans of the Supergiants as the legendary Indian captain finished the match in the manner only he can, smashing 4,6 and 6 off the last three balls of Axar Patel's over, who was given 23 runs to defend to help the Kings XI Punjab climb above Pune in the IPL Season 9 standings, but fell short.

The match itself was an exciting one right through with the Kings XI Punjab opting to bat first on winning the toss in the sweltering heat of Vizag, and reached a competitive 172-7 on the back of half-centuries from Murali Vijay (59) and Gurkeerat Singh (51).

Nine stitches to repair a split-webbing on his left hand did not prevent Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli from taking the field on Wednesday night, and fans of the club will be happy that he did, as the irrepressible 27 year old smashed his fourth ton of what has been an exceptional season for the Delhi lad as he led his side to yet another win, one which takes them to the dizzying heights of second place in the Indian Premier League standings, ahead of three other teams also on 14 points courtesy of a better net run rate.

And than net run rate for the Royal Challengers could well be worth a point in itself as the side racked up a third straight win, this time by another ridiculous margin of 82 runs after the rain had reduced their contest with the Kings XI Punjab to 15 overs a side.
