Mumbai Indians thump Kings XI Punjab

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, Mar 30 (PTI): Lasith Malinga starred with the ball while Shikhar Dhawan shone with the bat as table-toppers Mumbai Indians thumped tournament laggards Kings XI Punjab by four wickets for their sixth win in the Indian Premier League here tonight.

After Mumbai Indians skipper Sachin Tendulkar had put in the visitors, Malinga captured four wickets, including three in four balls, as the home side restricted Kings XI Punjab for 163.

Barring the notable exception of Shaun Marsh, who struck a brisk 47-ball 57 in his first IPL III match, the Punjab top and middle order batsmen capitulated again as the visitors settled for a below-par total.

Subsequently, Shikhar Dhawan (50 off 40 balls) and Saurabh Tiwary (31 off 23) came up with useful knocks as Mumbai cruised to 164 for six in 19.3 overs to consolidate their position atop the points table.
