Match 24, Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai 10 April, 2019

Toss won by Mumbai Indians (decided to bowl)

Mumbai Indians beat Kings XI Punjab by 3 wickets

Man of the Match: Kieron Pollard



What a run chase! Mumbai Indians do get through in the end as they pickup 2 runs on the final ball. Ashwin could have probably had the long on and long off in? Who knows! Mumbai Indians are absolutely delighted as they win this one by 3 runs. Pollard surely the star for his team


Two balls and only one run..Chahar and Joseph taking this to the end. Still need 3 from 2 balls here!


WICKET! Pollard had hit a boundary there, but then has to walk back. He hits it straight to mid-wicket with 4 runs still needed! 3 balls left but only the tail to come here!


That's disastrous from Rajpoot, he bowls a no ball and it goes for a maximum. Pollard will also get a free hit with 8 needed from 6 balls now


15 runs needed from final over, we are in for an absolute thriller here. Ankit Rajpoot to bowl and Pollard will face!


FOUR AND SIX SIX! Young Curran facing the brunt of Pollard force here, bad line and length also from the Englishman. Some huge hits by Pollard and Mumbai really cruising at the moment


Alzarri Joseph finds the boundary there, still a good over from Shami as he concedes only 8 runs in the over. After 18 overs, Mumbai Indians are 166/6. 32 required from final two overs here


50! Full toss from Sam Curran and that's absolutely slaughtered by Pollard as he deposits that into the stands on the legside. Also completes his half-century here, just 40 runs needed from final 3 overs here


SIX! Pollard is the man for Mumbai you have to say, hits one straight over long off for a maximum. Good start to the over, key for Mumbai will be to ensure that Pollard faces the maximum amount of deliveries!


WICKET! Two in the over for Shami, he removes both the Pandya brothers here. Slower ball does the trick as Krunal looks to hit towards the off-side but hits it straight to Miller at cover. Pandya departs for 1 and Mumbai Indians are 140/6.

Mumbai will be really happy with the way Kieron Pollard is striking the ball at the moment, he seems to have regained his form. Mumbai will be fancying their chances with Pollard at the crease.


WICKET! Shami gets the much needed breakthrough for his side, Pandya looks to hit straight down the ground but the bat twists in his hand and he just ends up skying that one. Miller doesn't drop those. Pandya departs for 19 and Mumbai are 135/5 after 15 overs here.


Excellent over there by Viljoen to keep the pressure on Mumbai, he seems to be a reliable death bowler for Kings XI Punjab here. Concedes just 7 runs there and 63 needed from final 5 here


Ashwin's last over was always going to be crucial one feels and Pollard has absolutely ripped into him, 24 runs come from that over and this might well be a game changer. Just 70 runs required from final 6 overs now


Another expensive over this from Viljoen, he starts with 5 wides. Bad call that and replays show that the ball had actually hit the stumps but the bails hadn't been dislodged. 15 runs coming from the over and Mimbai require 89 from 42 balls


WICKET! What an incredible over this from Sam Curran, Pollard smashes him for two sixes and then a boundary. But then on the last ball, he affects a run out to remove Kishan. Pollard calls and then sends the youngster back, Curran on his follow through collects the ball and gets in a direct hit. Still 18 from the over and MI are 94/4 after 12


That looked like a good over for Kings XI Punjab as Ashwin started with three dot balls, but then Ishan Kishan finds a boundary and after that Pollard just powers one over long on for a maximum. Mumbai Indians are 76/3 after 11 overs here


The required run rate continues to rise here for Mumbai Indians, almost touching 13 at the moment. Kishan and Pollard both not finding the boundaries at the moment. Advantage KXIP halfway through the innings, as MI are 65/3 after 10 overs


WICKET! Ravichandran Ashwin gets the breakthrough, Mumbai losing their way in the chase now. de Kock looks to hit straight down the ground but Miller takes a fantastic running catch. He dived on the run and held onto the ball brilliantly. Mumbai are 62/3 as de Kock departs for 24.


WICKET! Much needed this for Kings XI Punjab, Suryakumar Yadav looks to flick it towards the on-side but hits it straight to the fielder. Rather nonchalant that but Surya will have to walk back for 21 off 15. Curran strikes immediately!


Ashwin comes into the attack and he starts really well here, his performance you feel will be extremely important as far as Punjab's chances in this game are concerned. He concedes just 3 runs from his first over.

Hemang Badani, Former India Cricketer 22:39(IST)

Both teams at the end of powerplay are 50/1, I feel Mumbai Indians have more depth in batting as compared to KXIP. KXIP also playing only 5 regular bowlers, so I feel its advantage Mumbai at this stage.


DROPPED! KL Rahul might have dropped a catch and done some damage to himself. The physio is immediately out, it looks like cramps as Rahul is down on the ground and seems to be in pain. Mumbai are 50/1 after 6 overs


Rajpoot again concedes three boundaries in the over, he is really leaking runs here at the moment and something Ashwin might want to address rather quickly!


DROPPED! Suryakumar Yadav hits one in the air and its lobbed towards point, Miller looks to have jumped early here. The ball hits his hand and lobs out, that was a sitter really and you don't see Miller dropping those. He has his hands up straight away to apologise.


WICKET! Lad moves across the off-stump, way too much though and he has exposed his leg-stump. Shami with a superb delivery and he hits the leg-stump. Delight for Punjab and Lad departs for 15. Mumbai Indians are 28/1

PREVIEW: It will be a clash of mid-table rivals when Mumbai Indians host Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede stadium on Wednesday.

The tie comes on the back of hearings for two players — Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul — critical to the fortunes of their respective sides.

The duo, who are two of the country’s brightest young talents, have been embroiled in controversy since their ill-fated appearance of ‘Koffee with Karan’. Pandya and Rahul were suspended by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) and recalled from Australia for their inappropriate comments on TV show ‘Koffee with Karan’.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, BCCI Ombudsman DK Jain will speak to Pandya and Rahul in Mumbai with both cricketers hoping that the matter will be finally put to rest.

Punjab opener Rahul has taken his time to find his bearing in IPL-12 but is finally starting to hit his stride just days before India’s squad for the 2019 World Cup is going to be announced. After his match-winning 71 on Monday night, Rahul now has 217 runs from six games this season at an average of 54.25 with three fifties. Pandya has got limited opportunities to bat but in those he has managed to make as big an impact as any for his side.

The Baroda all-rounder has a strike-rate of 178.9 this year and will be MI’s enforcer in the fag end of their batting innings. The home side’s bowling stocks look far more sorted with West Indian Alzarri Joseph and Australian left-arm paceman Jason Beherendorff bowling with pace and accuracy.

Mumbai’s top-order still seems a bit uncertain with skipper Rohit Sharma yet to find that one big knock while Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav have also been inconsistent. Punjab, on the other hand, will be pleased with the form of the Karnataka duo of Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, the architects of their win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday.

Opener Chris Gayle remains a threat at the top of the innings but MI have the bowling arsenal to keep Punjab in check. After a slow start, MI have begun to find their groove and revenge for the earlier loss in Mohali will be on top of their agenda on Wednesday.


Jasprit Bumrah: The MI paceman might not be among the wickets this season but remains an ever-present threat for every opposition. His pin-point yorkers make him one of the finest death bowlers in the world. After an early-season injury scare, Bumrah has looked fit and fired on all cylinders which makes him skipper Rohit Sharma’s pace spearhead for every condition.

Chris Gayle: For many a season, the West Indian opener has been the X-factor for every team he has played. Gayle started off the season positively but has slowed down since missing a game with injury. Punjab need his muscle power at the top of the order to nullify the threat posed by his Windies counterpart Joseph.


Both teams are unlikely to tinker with their after wins in their last games
