Bhajji elects to bowl against Kings XI
Mumbai Indians won the toss and invited Kings XI Punjab to bat first in the tenth match of the Indian Premier League in Mohali.
Kings XI Punjab led by Yuvraj Singh, have lost both its matches - against Chennai Super Kings here and Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur, would be looking for a much-needed victory when they take on Mumbai Indians.
Kings XI Punjab would be banking on its skipper Yuvraj Singh, wicketkeeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara and Brett Lee whereas other top players like Mahela Jayawardene, S Sreesanth and Irfan Phathan are yet to come good for the Punjab team.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians, who are also yet to score a win, will be hoping that Sri Lankan veteran Sanath Jayasuriya plays a big knock as he has so far scored just 49 runs in his two outings.
Mumbai will want their dashing batsmen Robin Uthappa and youngster Abhishek Nayar to fire, who showed their worth in the narrow defeat against Chennai Super Kings.
Harbhajan Singh and South African great Shaun Pollock have proved their ability with the ball and also chipping in useful knocks.
