IPL 2018, MI vs KXIP: Kings XI Punjab won 5 out of their first 6 matches and then lost 5 of their last 6 matches

‘Master Blaster’ Sachin Tendulkar meeting his dear mate Virender Sehwag at Wankhede Stadium ahead of the crucial clash between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Mumbai Indians (MI) is winning the internet. Both the retired cricketers opened the batting for India in limited overs format. The two have opened for India in 93 innings between 2002 and 2012. They proved to be a successful opening pair and have spent a lot of time off the field as well.

Together, Sehwag and Tendulkar have been involved in 12-century partnerships as well as in 18 half-century partnerships. Sehwag and Tendulkar put on 182 runs against New Zealand at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium in Hyderabad in November 2003 — their highest opening partnership in One-Day International (ODI) Cricket. In exactly the same number of innings (93) as Gilchrist and Waugh, Sehwag and Tendulkar finished with 3,919 runs.

Here is the highly talked-about picture:

Meanwhile, it is an important match for both IPL outfits. For MI, they need to win to keep their playoff hopes alive and for Kings XI Punjab, it is time to get back to winning ways after the slump. KXIP won 5 out of their first 6 matches and then lost 5 of their last 6 matches. Hence, revival will be the only thing KXIP will have in mind.
