IPL 2018: Mumbai Indians win a thriller with Bumrah's heroics

  • Lokesh Rahul on way to his 94 on Wednesday

The two stitched a 111-run partnership to take Punjab extremely close to victory.

This dismissal defined the rest of the match as the visitors struggled to score runs.

Pandya posted a video where the duo are seen exchanging their team jerseys after the match.

Tye and Pandya had swapped places at the top of the season bowling charts following the Australian pace bowler's successive four-wicket hauls for KXIP. Are these wickets coming better late than never for MI? Pollard, meanwhile, got to his half century, but was soon out caught at widish mid-off by Aaron Finch off the delivery of Ashwin.

FIFTY! It's half-century no 10 for KL Rahul as he reaches the landmark in 36 balls.

Mitchell McClenaghan kept his nerves to concede 13 and ensure its last game on Sunday in Delhi will not be a mere formality. Hardik Pandya (9) and Ben Cutting (4) too fell cheaply.

Despite this, the hosts managed to finish on a high, scoring 11 runs in the final over. Losing wickets one after the other they found themselves in dire straits at 100-4.

Seekingalpha.com's article titled: "What A Good Deal Looks Like" and published on May 11, 2018 is yet another important article. A value of 50-75 would indicate a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would signify an extremely strong trend.


When Ashwin finally came on in the 16th over, he got rid of Pollard immediately.

WICKET! Ravichandran Ashwin strikes as he removes Pollard for 50. One down Kishan's stay at the crease was also cut short by Tye, who stuck in his second over. It was the fourth over of the innings and Suryakumar Yadav had just whacked Tye's fellow pacer Ankit Rajpoot for two sixes and as many fours in the previous over.

What Kings XI Punjab needs to do: Kings XI Punjab not only has to defeat Chennai Super Kings in its last match of the league stage, on May 20, but also hope for MI to falter.

But as Yuvraj Singh came in and missed juicy length balls - which he would have dispatched over deep mid-wicket with a blindfold on a decade ago - before eventually holing out, it spoke volumes about Kings XI's one-man batting army. As a team, we thought now is the time to get him back because - not taking anything away from JP Duminy as well - he was not getting an opportunity and we thought if he's batting down the order, Pollard will be a better option for us, finishing off games like he has done in the past.

Preview: Mumbai Indians will be desperate for a win against Kings XI Punjab to keep their play-off hopes alive when they square-off in a crucial Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.

MI have had a mixed season so far this year. KXIP lost the last match against RCB. Gayle and Suryakumar Yadav made fifties. But with Rahul hammering the bowlers all over the park, the match was hanging in balance until Bumrah accounted for him in his next over to tip the balance in MI's favor. In their next match, against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai could not defend 12 in two overs despite taking it to the last ball.

"Bumrah is that guy you can just bank on", McClenaghan told Star Sports after the match.
