Dubai [UAE], October 18 (ANI): Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to bat first against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Sunday.

Mumbai Indians are in a phenomenal form as the team won all of their five previous matches and will be looking to extend their winning streak. The Rohit Sham-led side holds the second spot on the points table with 12 points, only behind Delhi Capitals.
