Table-topping Mumbai Indians take on last-placed Kings XI Punjab as the 2020 Indian Premier League continues with this match in Dubai. This fixture takes place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on October 18 and the live action starts at 18:00 local time.
Mumbai won when these teams last met, with Rohit Sharma top-scoring as he hit 70 in a total of 191/4 in a 48-run win. They have not lost since either, winning five in a row in total to move top of the table – a position they maintained as Quinton de Kock fired them to an eight-wicket win against Kolkata Knight Riders last time out.
Kings XI Punjab lost five in a row in total, after their first win of the tournament, but doubled their win tally by beating Royal Challengers Bangalore last time out.

MI vs KXIP Toss Prediction
Both teams won despite being asked to field first last time out – the tendency has been to win the toss and bat first in the UAE this year.
The wind should ease by the evening on another hot, dry Dubai evening.
The wicket is flat and fast at Dubai, so the runs are usually plentiful
