MI and PBKS last faced each other on Oct 18, 2020, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in an absolute thriller of a match where PBKS beat Mumbai after playing two super-overs

After both teams finished at 176/6 at the end of 20 overs, the match then went to a super over.

Such was the intensity and competitiveness of the match that even the super-over could not separate the two teams. After the first super-over, both teams had 5 runs on the board. This called for a second super-over.

It was after a long day’s play that Punjab beat Mumbai after racking up 15 runs in the second super-over to which Mumbai could only score 11 runs.

The first leg, unlike the second leg, was a fairly one-sided match as MI (191/4 in 20 overs) beat PBKS (143/8 in 20 overs) by 48 runs.

Mumbai not only returned to winning ways in this match, but it was a special occasion for MI skipper Rohit Sharma as he crossed 5000 IPL runs.
