IPL 2018: MI Vs KXIP, Highlights: Bumrah guides MI to sensational 3-run; Rahul's 94 goes in vain

It is the important match for Mumbai Indians as it decides them to enter into the playoff.

Rahul and Chris Gayle gave Kings XI run chase a fiery start.

But Jasprit Bumrah struck twice in the 17th over to send Finch packing four short of what would have been a well deserved fifty before bouncing out Marcus Stoinis (1).

Earlier, Australian seamer Tye returned with figures of 4-0-16-4 and skipper Ravichandran Ashwin (2/18) took two wickets to restrict Mumbai Indians to 186-8. That dismissal ended the crucial 111-run second wicket partnership between Rahul and Finch to bring Mumbai back into the game.

The three-run loss loss, on the other hand, will make it extremely hard for the Kings to enter the last four since its Net Run Rate is the worst among all eight teams.

He also said that the Mumbai Indians would be playing fearless cricket and the team knows that if they win their last two games, they can still make it to the play-offs, although they have gathered only 10 points from as many games.

Strampel has pleaded not guilty to the charges. "That being said, my investigation is still open and ongoing", Mr Forsyth said. In 2014, the university determined that his "pelvic floor" treatments were medically legitimate , despite complaints.

Meanwhile, the two flood-lights went off after the 10th over and the play was halted for about 12 minutes. 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.

Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals will look to get their campaign back on track when they face-off in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday. He ensured Mumbai had enough to defend and gave them just enough room for error.

However, the big blow for KXIP came when KL Rahul was dismissed for 94. Tye, who took his third four-wicket bag in four matches, castled the big-hitting Evin Lewis first ball through the gates, the ball angling in nicely to the left-hander and beating the forward-pushing West Indian.

If it wins its final game, and MI wins, too, the last spot will be decided on the net run-rate, making it highly likely for MI to seal the spot. Punjab had five wins in their first six matches, but has marked only one win in their next six matches.

Coming back, the right-left duo of Pollard and Krunal sent the visiting bowlers to the leather hunt as they resurrected the innings with a quick-fire 65-run stand.

Both batsmen fell in successive overs as Krunal was deceived by Marcus Stoinis slower delivery and pulled it to short fine leg. In the previous game, Punjab's team had bowled out on just 88 runs in front of Virat Kohli Led Royal Challengers Bangalore.

On the batting side, Mumbai Indians has Suryakumae Yadav, Rohit Sharma while Kings XI Punjab has the powerful hitter Chris Gayle and KL Rahul in the squad.
