The last time when MI and KXIP had locked horns against each other was in the first week of October in IPL 2020. After Kings XI captain Lokesh Rahul won the toss and chose to bowl, Indians posted a formidable 191/4 in 20 overs after their captain Rohit Sharma led from the front to score 70 (45) including eight fours and three sixes.
More than Sharma, a 23-ball 67-run unbeaten partnership between Kieron Pollard (47 not out) and Hardik Pandya (30 not out) ended up becoming the difference between the two teams. In response, Kings XI could only manage 143/8 in 20 overs.
