IPL: Mumbai Indians earn crucial win over Kings XI Punjab

IPL: Mumbai Indians earn crucial win over Kings XI Punjab

The Mumbai Indians meet the Kings XI Punjab in a must win game for both the teams at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The battle is surely between Bumrah and Rahul now as Cutting's over costs 15 runs. On the other side, Aaron Finch was elevated to No.3 for the Kings XI and made 46 at a time where Rahul needed a partner.

"To be very precise, I did expect to find ourselves in such a situation, but not this much; probably thought we might have won one or two more games and probably reached 14 or 16 points", he added.

With this win, Mumbai Indians are still in the race for the play-offs with 12 points and move to fourth in the table. Not only did Bumrah bowl a miserly spell but most importantly, he got the prize scalp of Rahul in the penultimate over to leave Yuvraj Singh and Axar Patel a stiff task of scoring 17 runs in the last over.

Pollard, who scored his first half-century of the season looked like taking the game away from KXIP, but his dismissal by Ashwin brought the visiting side back in the game.

However, the hosts will be putting their hopes on Suryakamar Yadav - one of their few consistent run-scorers - and opener Evin Lewis.

The Chairman of the committee, Senator Danjuma Goje , laid the report before the Senate at the plenary on Tuesday. A debt servicing cost of 2,203,835,365,699 and statutory transfers of 530,421,368,624.

Earlier, Mumbai Indians posted 186, thanks to a 50-run knock from middle-order batsman Kieron Pollard, who hammered three sixes and five fours in his 23-ball innings.

But, Bumrah proved yet again that he is best in the T20 end overs, removing Aaron Finch in the first ball of the 17th over and in the fifth ball, forced Marcus Stoinis to glove a short ball to wicket-keeper. A single lose will out from the tournament, However, the same condition/Scenario is applicable on KXIP's graph, they also can't afford a single defeat. That approach, however, resulted in four wickets in five overs and a significant loss of momentum.

The two stitched a 111-run partnership to take Punjab extremely close to victory. One change they would like to do is sending JP Duminy up the order as he is playing at number 8, which is a complete waste.

Thursday's IPL encounter sees Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore need a win against table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad to stay in the playoff hunt. Kings XI Punjab had a good start but Gayle was out with 18 runs. It has to win this match; if it does so, it is likely to go through to the next round even if Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab win their respective matches. Bumrah then removed Finch and Marcus Stoinis before dismissing Rahul in the 19th over, which all but sealed the match in Mumbai's favour.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.
