IPL 2018, MI vs KXIP

IPL Live Match Today

Batting first, Mumbai Indians posted a challenging total of 187 runs for 8 wickets. Tye bowled two more excellent overs at the death while picking up one more wicket in the form of Hardik Pandya to finish with figures of 4-16.

Kings XI Punjab's KL Rahul has taken the Orange Cap from Rishabh Pant, surpassing the flamboyant Delhi Daredevils' wicketkeeper-batsman's tally of 582 runs on Wednesday, reports TOI.

The Mumbai Indians meet the Kings XI Punjab in a must win game for both the teams at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

The match was an interesting affair and everybody enjoyed every bit of it but there was something very unique about this match. Although Mitchell McClenaghan got the better of the Jamaican to leave the team on 34 for one, Rahul and Aaron Finch took the match to the hosts. Though Rahul played till the 19th over but there was no other batsman who took the responsibility of finishing the game as his superb knock of 94 went in vain.

And with Rohit Sharma returning to the pavilion for six, MI were floundering on 71 for four.

Pitch: The Wankhede pitch has produced some good game of cricket this season, so we can expect that even this game will produce 165-170 runs.

"In the first few games, we had KL, (Chris) Gayle, Karun (Nair) who'd scored half-centuries or a century".

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.

Andrew Tye has stunned fans with a remarkable piece of skill in the IPL.

After this win, Mumbai Indians jumped to the fourth place in the Points Table while KXIP slipped to the sixth spot.

Not only did Bumrah bowl a miserly spell, but more importantly, got the prize scalp of Rahul in the penultimate over to leave Yuvraj Singh and Axar Patel a stiff task of scoring 17 runs off the final over.

The three-run loss, on the other hand, will make it extremely hard for Kings XI to enter the last four since its net run rate is the worst among the eight teams. Finch and Stoinis fell three balls apart in the 17th over bowled by Bumrah, and despite Rahul's innovative hitting in the following over, KXIP's innings disintegrated under pressure.

The Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - will also need to dish out something special if they are to stand any chance of making it to the final four.
