KXIP Vs MI Head-to-Head statistics | IPL 2019 as KXIP and MI take on each other in a crunch game at Mohali.
The Indian Premier League (IPL)’s 12th season is now well and truly off and running, with the tournament now already progressing into its 9th match. The 9th match is scheduled to be played between Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians, with both the teams winning one game out of the two that they have played so far.
Kings XI Punjab started their campaign off with a thrilling win over Rajasthan Royals, a game that was also marked by a controversial mankad incident by Punjab skipper Ravichandran Ashwin. However, Punjab fell short when they faced Kolkata Knight Riders, losing by 28 runs thanks to a superb blitz by Andre Russell.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians started their season on a losing note, defeated by a reshaped Delhi Capitals side in only the 2nd game of the season. Albeit, they saw their first win after edging Royal Challengers Bangalore in a close contest, winning the game by just 6 runs.
