Mumbai Indians were under definite pressure going into the game against Kings XI Punjab at Mohali. But, they would have felt better knowing the opposition they were facing were under even greater pressure.
Sunrisers Hyderabad remain in contention for the play offs after beating hosts Kings XI Punjab by a comprehensive margin of 30 runs at Mohali. The Sunrisers are now on level with the RCB with 8 wins in 13 matches. Kings XI Punjab are out of the play offs for sure with 8 defeats in 13 matches.
Although India failed to show the intensity with the bat and hence lost the first Test against Australia by 122 runs, the on-field rivalry with players from both sides rubbing each other the wrong was very much there.
