South Australia Take Second Win As Mumbai Falter
South Australia 182-5 (Harris 56, Klinger 50) beat
Mumbai Indians 180-7 (Tiwary 44, O'Brien 2-49) by five wickets
Champions League, Durban
South Australia made it two wins out of two in the Champions League Twenty20 as they secured an impressive five-wicket win over Mumbai Indians in another high-scoring contest in Durban.
After the Mumbai Indians posted 180 for seven, South Australia reached 182 for five with three balls remaining as they build on their opening success against the Lions.
Saurabh Tiwary (44), Ambati Rayadu (38) and Kieron Pollard (36) had looked to put the Indian Premier League side into a winning position with some big hitting as some ten sixes were hit in the opening 20 overs.
However, after a slow start, South Australia openers Michael Klinger (50 in 48 balls) and Daniel Harris (56 in 37) turned the tables and aided by some poor fielding, they got themselves into the driving seat.
Two wickets apiece from Lasith Malinga and Ali Murtaza brought the Mumbai Indians back into the game before Cameron Borgas's unbeaten 14 and Tom Cooper's 19 from five balls eased the Redbacks over the line.
