Durban - The South Australia Redbacks took charge of Group B in the Airtel Champions League T20 when they beat the Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets at Kingsmead on Tuesday.

It gave the Australian franchise two wins out of two while Mumbai are in danger of being knocked out of the competition without a point after their first two matches.

The Mumbai Indians posted a very competitive total of 180 after scoring 68 runs in their last 5 overs largely through the efforts of their two West Indies players, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo.

But the Australians always stayed ahead of the ball game with man of the match Daniel Harris and his captain, Michael Klinger, posting a century stand for the first wicket in only 13 overs.

The Mumbai Indian paid the price for a very poor fielding performance that saw several catches dropped.

The Redbacks held their nerve in spite of facing a scoring rate of 12 to the over but they found their men for the moment in the likes of Cameron Borgas and Tom Cooper who got them safely over the line in spite of the fact that they were facing an international attack.

The Mumbai Indians’ next match is against Guyana at Kingsmead on Thursday while the Redbacks face the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the same venue on Friday.
