KXIP vs MI stats: Mumbai Indians are masters of the chase, Hashim Amla excels in a losing cause

This was Mumbai’s sixth successful run chase on the trot.

Hashim Amla’s stylish unbeaten 104 ultimately went in vain as Mumbai Indians gunned down a steep target of 199 easily and cruised to a eight-wicket win against Kings XI Punjab in Indore on Friday. On a manic night, Jos Buttler and Parthiv Patel went on an explosive start for Mumbai before Nitish Rana at No 3 kept the momentum going with a blinding knock.

Here are some of the big numbers from the match:

  • Mumbai Indians recorded their sixth straight successful run chase. Kolkata Knight Riders hold the record with 10 successful run chases from 2014 to 2015.
  • The target of 199 was Mumbai’s highest successful run chase, after they had chased down 190 to against Rajasthan Royals in 2014.
  • In terms of run rate, Mumbai’s chase was the second-highest in the IPL in terms of run rate when it comes to chasing 175+ totals. 
  • Mumbai Indians scored 82/1 in the Powerplay, their highest score in the first six overs and seventh-highest overall in the IPL.
  • Nitish Rana smashed seven sixes and zero boundaries in his unbeaten 62 off 34 balls for Mumbai. That’s the most number of sixes hit by a player without hitting a boundary in the IPL.
  • Lasith Malinga was hammered for 58 runs in his four overs, his worst ever bowling performance in a Twenty20 match. It’s also only the third time he has gone for 50+ runs in Twenty20 matches. It was also the most runs conceded by a bowler in an IPL match. 
  • Hashim Amla’s unbeaten 104 became the third highest individual score in a losing cause in the IPL. Andrew Symonds’s unbeaten 117 and Wriddhiman Saha’s unbeaten 115 are the top two in that list.

These GIFs show you what it means to miss breakfast

That monstrous roar is your empty stomach.

Let’s take a glance at your every day morning routine. You crawl out of bed, go for a quick shower, pull out and wear your neatly ironed clothes at the speed of light and then rush out of the house, making sure you have your keys and wallet in place.


You walk into office, relieved because you have made it to work on time. Stifling yawns and checking emails, you wonder how your colleagues are charged up and buzzing with energy. “What is wrong with these people” you mumble to yourself.


Slowly, you start to change. You start snapping at colleagues and start arguing with your computer. You take out your frustration on anything or anyone in sight.

To add to the aggressive behaviour, you’ve completely lost your focus. After some time, you simply forget what you were doing.


Unable to bear the hunger pangs, you go for a mid-morning snack. It is only when a colleague asks you for a bite do you realize that you have developed into a fully formed, hunger fueled, monster. Try not to look at yourself in the mirror.


If only you had spared not even twenty or ten but just 5 minutes in the morning and not skipped breakfast, your story would look completely different - as you will see in this video.


The fast dip in your mood and lack of focus is because your body has missed its most important meal of the day – breakfast. Research has shown that skipping a meal, especially in the morning, worsens the mood because there is a drop in the blood sugar. This in turn affects the levels of serotonin and dopamine, the chemicals produced in the brain that control our moods and feelings. In simpler English, not having breakfast is going to make you really cranky and confused!

Morning is also when the body needs maximum nutrition to function efficiently through the day as you’ve just woken up from a full 7 hours of no food (and if you’re sleeping less than that, that’s a whole other article).

So in short, having a breakfast could make you go from looking like the earlier GIFs to this:
