IPL: Punjab win toss, to bowl first against Mumbai

Mohali, April 25 (IANS) Kings XI Punjab won the toss and elected to bowl first in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash against defending champions Mumbai indians at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium here on Monday.

Punjab made two changes in their line-up, bringing in Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson and leg-spinner Pardeep Sahu.
