Mumbai Indians realised the difficulty in defending totals without Lasith Malinga in their playing 11 as they lost to Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede stadium.

Chasing 164 for victory on a sporting surface, Shaun Marsh stunned the crowd into silence with an unbeaten 68 off 40 balls, picking his spot and executing his strokes in style. Marsh hit five fours and three sixes as the visitors rattled up 164 for four in 19.3 overs to win by six wickets. It was Kings consecutive win.

Mumbai Indians was under pressure right from the start while defending a moderate score. Munaf Patel vented his frustration when he went for runs early on in the innings. Harbhajan Singh rotated the bowlers around but the turnaround didn’t happen.

Earlier, Franklin, promoted to open the Mumbai Indians innings in the place of Richard Levi, played out a first over maiden to Praveen Kumar. With Tendulkar as partner, patience was a virtue. However, this was not the case with the maestro.

Tendulkar, dancing out to left-arm spinner Bhargav Bhatt, was an ominous signal for the bowlers and the batsman displayed gift for timing in the next over, stroking the ball through cover against the canny Praveen, who got subtle movement off the seam.
