Mumbai Indians beat Kings XI Punjab by 8 wickets

Man of the Match: Jos Buttler

Highlights

23:10(IST)

ALL OVER! Rana finishes the game with a humongous six into the fine-leg stands. That was a brilliant knock from Rana as he remains unbeaten on 62. MI chase down 199 with 27 balls to spare. Carnage of the highest order.

23:05(IST)

8 needed off 30 balls here. This is complete carnage at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. Mumbai Indians' score reads 191/2 after 15 overs with Rana on 54 and Hardik on 15

23:03(IST)

MAXIMUM! Hardik is now a part of the six-hitting spree as he sends Ishant into the long-on stands. That was huge and the crowd is loving the carnage here. MI's score reads 183/2

23:00(IST)

Just 4 runs from the Mohit over after he dismissed Buttler off the first ball of the over. But that was too late in the day. MI now need 29 runs off 36 balls with the score on 170/2

22:54(IST)

WICKET! Buttler goes finally, much to the delight of the Indore crowd. Slower ball from Mohit and Buttler looks to go big again and the ball goes high into the air as Maxwell takes a good catch. Buttler goes for 77 as MI's score reads 166/2

22:52(IST)

BACK to BACK SIXESSS! This time Buttler goes into the mid-wicket stands. No half measures here for the Englishman, as he moves into the 70s. MI's score reads 165/1

22:50(IST)

MAXIMUM! That is one of the flattest you will ever see. Sandeep bowls that one in the slot and Buttler just goes flat into the long-off hoardings. MI's score reads 159/1

22:48(IST)

16 runs from the Swapnil over as Mumbai Indians' score reads 150/1 after 12 overs. Need 48 runs off 8 overs.

22:46(IST)

BACK to BACK SIXESSSS! Rana hits Swapnil for two beautiful sixes here. Making up for the slightly quiet over from Swapnil an over back. MI's score reads 146/1

22:44(IST)

Another good over for Mumbai Indians as they pick 11 runs from the 11th over of the innings off Ishant. MI's score reads 134/1

22:40(IST)

MAXIMUM! Rana welcomes Ishant back to the bowling crease with a straight six. That is a beautiful drive over the boundary. MI's score reads 129/1

22:39(IST)

Six runs off the Swapnil over. This is the first over since Axar's first over that no boundary has been hit by the Mumbai batsmen. MI's score reads 123/1 after 10 overs

22:34(IST)

Another one big and handsome and into the stands. The arm ball from Axar dragged down and that goes 90m. That was a hugeeeee hit as Buttler moves to 56. MI's score reads 116/1

22:32(IST)

Slog sweep at its best here. Axar pitches that up and Rana goes big and handsome. This guy can pack a punch. MI's score reads 108/1

22:31(IST)

Another boundary for Buttler as he hits Stoinis over the top into the wide long-off boundary. That was well hit as MI's score reads 100/1 in the 8th over

22:29(IST)

Rana welcomes Stoinis in the second over with a six into the fine-leg stands. Stoinis bowls that short and Rana is quick to pull that into the stands. MI's score reads 93/1

22:28(IST)

Brilliant over from Axar here as he gives away just 5 runs. MI's score reads 87/1 after 7 overs

22:20(IST)

WICKET! Stoinis gets Parthiv here with a slower ball. That gripped on the wicket and took the bottom edge of Parthiv's bat as he goes for 37, caught by Maxwell. MI's score reads 81/1

22:17(IST)

Now a cut from Parthiv to the point boundary. Flurry of boundaries from the Mumbai Indians here. The pressure is on the KXIP bowlers here. Beautiful batting from them. MI's score reads 78/0

22:16(IST)

MAXIMUM! This time Parthiv welcomes Stoinis with a flat six over the mid-wicket fence. That was 79m and into the crowd. MI's score reads 74/0

22:15(IST)

BACK TO BACK boundaries here. This time Buttler creams that on the off-side to the left of mid-off. Perfect timing and that races away as MI's score reads 68/0

22:14(IST)

Another one from Buttler and this time it was on the legs of Buttler and he just helps that on its way to the fine-leg boundary. MI's score reads 64/0

22:13(IST)

Bludgeoned this one did Buttler. Deceived by the slower ball, Buttler waits on and then hammers that past mid-on. He is dealing in boundaries. MI's score reads 60/0

22:12(IST)

Beautiful placement from Parthiv as he hits that over the head of the wicket-keeper and into the third-man boundary. That was classy as he gets four runs. Welcomes Mohit with a boundary as MI's score reads 55/0

22:09(IST)

A slower on Parthiv's toes and he will not miss these. Places it for a boundary as MI bring up their 50 in the 4th over. Good start for Mumbai Indians.

22:07(IST)

DROPPED! Buttler creams that one and hits that on the head of Miller. Looks like he could not see the ball. Buttler gets a life off Ishant on 22 and a boundary to boost. MI's score reads 45/0

22:06(IST)

MAXIMUM! This time it is Parthiv. On the legs from Ishant and Parthiv just helps it on his way into the fine-leg stands. MI's score reads 40/0 in the 4th over

22:04(IST)

Flat and over the top into the extra cover boundary off Sandeep. Great start from Buttler here, but he has to carry on this way and not throw his wicket away. MI's score reads 34/0

22:02(IST)

Buttler looks in good flow here as he drives Sandeep for a boundary here. No place for any width here with Buttler at the crease. MI's score reads 26/0

21:58(IST)

Now it is the turn of Parthiv to play that on the up past the covers fielder. Ishant is leaking runs here as MI's score reads 20/0

21:57(IST)

Buttler guides Ishant to the cover-point boundary for four runs. That was not a bad ball at all, but Buttler was too good there. MI's score reads 15/0
