IPL: Mumbai Indians earn crucial win over Kings XI Punjab

Bumrah leads Mumbai to close win over Punjab in IPL

Mumbai will take on Delhi Daredevils in its last league match while Punjab will be up against Chennai Super Kings, which has already qualified for the playoffs along with Sunrisers Hyderabad. During the chase KL Rahul played a brilliant knock of 94 but failed to get his team home.

The match was an interesting affair and everybody enjoyed every bit of it but there was something very unique about this match. "As good as our bowling attack is, we have not been putting up complete performance as a team with both bat and ball and that sums up why we have not won games lately", he said. While this tradition goes back to the football games but it is for the first time that any such thing has been witnessed in cricket.

In fact, Ashwin and Tye combined to concede only 23 runs from the 16th to 19th overs and made sure Mumbai didn't run away with the game.

Mumbai might think that they have an edge ahead of today's match as they had beaten KXIP in their last encounter at Indore, but in the present scenario with the playoffs in sight, it all boils down to a battle of nerves.

Pollard played an outstanding inning of 50 runs off only 23 deliveries and smashed 5 fours and 3 sixes.

Lokesh Rahul's sixth half century almost ended Mumbai's run before fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah (3-15) turned the match on its head in his return spell and restricted Punjab to 5-183.

In the points table, Kings XI Punjab is at the fifth place with 12 points and the team Mumbai Indians is at the sixth place with ten points.

Crude Whipsaws but is Headed Higher
The IEA acknowledged attention of market participants has shifted away from inventories to price volatility. Opec and other producers such as Russian Federation have restrained supplies in support of higher prices.

Andrew Tye and R Ashwin are the two most important weapons of Punjab in absence of Mujeeb who is injured.

Only Suryakumar Yadav has been among the runs on a consistent basis and MI would be pleased with the return to form of West Indian opener Evin Lewis.

KXIP should fight for a win as their net run-rate is the lowest among all the teams and a loss here could make it worse. A boost up the order wasn't as successful for Marcus Stoinis who fell to a rampant Bumrah short ball.

With the target of 187 to chase, the visitors started on a good note but lost their opener, Chris Gayle in the fourth over at the score of 34 runs.

Bumrah (3/15) snapped up three crucial wickets as defending champions MI kept their play-off hopes alive by notching up a thrilling three-run win.

Rahul was also seen exchanging his jersey with MI's Hardik Pandya in a mark of respect.
