Lasith Malinga, the leading Mumbai Indians bowler in the IPL speared his yorkers with ease and sent four KXIP (Kings X1 Punjab) batsmen back to the pavilion. An amazing bowling display by Lasith Malinga as the hapless Kings X1 Punjab batsmen struggled to get their bearings in the IPL3 cricket match and floundered to a meagre score of 163 runs off 20 overs

Lasith Malinga was ably supported by Zaheer Khan in the Mumbai Indians bowling display against Kings X1 Punjab in the IPL3 league match

Lasith Malinga and Zaheer Khan make a potent bowling pair for the Mumbai Indians. While Lasith Malinga relies on subtle variations in pace and accurate yorkers, Zaheer Khan relies on swing to make it happen for the Mumbai Indians. In the MI vs Kings X1 Punjab IPL3 encounter, both Zaheer Khan and Malinga bowled an immaculate line to have the Punjab Kings X1 batsmen struggling

The KXIP (Kings X1 Punjab) batsmen struggled against the Mumbai Indians bowling right from the first over when Zaheer Khan sent Ravi Bopara back to pavilion. The struggle for the Kings X1 Punjab batsmen continued until they were actually all out off the last ball of their 20-over innings against the Mumbai Indians bowling attack

The Mumbai Indians batting order huffed and puffed but finally prevailed over the Kings X1 Punjab bowlers

Facing a small target, the Mumbai Indians IPL3 cricket batsmen struggled on a slow Brabourne pitch, which offered spin and bounce to the Kings X1 Punjab bowlers , notably Piyush Chawla. After Mumbai Indians captain Sachin Tendulkar struggled a bit off Sangwan bowling left arm over the wicket, Piyush Chawla flight one to have Sachin Tendulkar,the proud owner of the IPL3 orange cap, caught at long on

Shikhar Dhawan, the Mumbai Indians opener, played a steady innings to move the Mumbai Indians to a resonably comfortable position vs KXIP in the IPL3 League match at the half way stage

Shikhar Dhawan scored a comfortable 50 runs off 40 balls for the Mumbai Indians vs the KXIP bowlers. In particular, Shikhar Dhawan hit some awesome square cuts off KXIP opening bowler Brett Lee’s bowling to the cover boundary

The Mumbai Indians were 82/2 off the first 10 overs, a comfortable position to overhaul the KXIP(Kings X1 Punjab) target of 163, thanks to Shikhar Dhawan and some reasonably good batting by Pollard

Just when the Mumbai Indians started losing wickets to some good KXIP bowling by Bopara and Piyush Chawla, SS Tiwari and Sathish came to the party

Sathish is an excellent find by the Mumbai Indians in IPL3. For the second time in the IPL3 Twenty20 cricket tournament, Sathish has rescued the Mumbai Indians IPL cricket team and has got the tag of a “good finisher”. With the Mumbai Indians needing six runs to win off the last over vs KXIP, Sathish, the new Mumbai Indians star, ran like a hare and played Brett Lee with a lot of comfort in the last over to take the Mumbai Indians home

SS Tiwari is another stalwart for the MI cricket team in IPL3 2010, and he belted a couple of enormous sixes to take MI home against KXIP

The Mumbai Indians prevailed over KXIP in the IPL3 2010 league match, thanks to some classy bowling by Lasith Malinga

Lasith Malinga ‘s amazing sling arm yorkers and Sathish ‘s finishing ability under pressure were the key factors that resulted in the Mumbai Indians win over the hapless KXIP IPL3 cricket team
