Tendulkar wins the toss, Indians bowl first
Mumbai Indians skipper Sachin Tendulkar has won the toss and elected to bowl first against the slumping Kings XI Punjab at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Chandigarh.

The Kings XI meanwhile will be looking to end their five game losing streak which has seen them slip down the standings and out of contention for a place in the Ipl play offs.
