Mohali start off the champions league campaign with a winning note as well! They were not off to a flying start either as Sehwag was gone for a golden duck. There was another duck in their innings as Miller failed to bag a run. Maxwell then counter-attacked in his usual way. But it was the Bailey and Perera partnership that helped the Indian side to emerge victorious.
Bailey was also lavish in praise of his bowlers who set up the win by restricting Hobart Hurricanes to just 146.
Hobart Hurricanes 144 for 6 (Birt 28, Wells 28, Perera 2-17)
Kings XI Punjab 146 for 5 (Maxwell 43, Perera 35*, Bailey 34*)
Man of the Match Thisara Perera
