MI vs KXIP: Preview, head-to-head and Fantasy XI

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

A shot away from a hundred, Rahul could only mishit a slower one to long-off to exit for 94 off 60.

For them to go through to the playoffs, they will have to win their next game and hope that other results go in their favor.

Jasprit Bumrah reinforced the fact that he is the best in the business when it comes to bowling in the death overs in T20 cricket. But Bumrah insists he sticks to his plans irrespective of the situation. "We were bowling second and I had a chat with (bowling coach) Shane Bond and (mentor Lasith) Malinga that there would be dew", said Bumrah, who produced a brilliant bowling display to take 3 for 15. But when 28 runs were required off the last two overs and Bumrah was given the ball to bowl the 19th over, he gave away 18 runs, which saw Rajasthan chasing the required 10 runs off the last over to win by three wickets. "I am very clear about what I need to do".

Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians will present a face-to-face challenge in an important knockout match at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Before that, that was my strength. For the starters, if MI lose today, they will be out of the IPL.

Before this knock, Pollard had only scored a paltry 83 runs in 8 matches and was dropped from the playing XI but his 65-run stand with Krunal in 36 balls, steered Mumbai Indians out of trouble after they had slumped to 71/4. He would bowl quick, mostly short of length and try to pick up wickets. Kings XI have won six out of their twelve games, while Mumbai has managed five wins from their twelve games. "He's in phenomenal form and even if you bowl waist height, he's hitting the ball out of the park so you've to try and be aggressive because he'll come hard so you've got to go back just as hard". Rohit also praised West Indian power-hitter Keiron Pollard, who finally found his groove with a fiery 50. Then Pollard scored a half-century in 23 balls. Leaving him out was a tough decision. "As a middle order batsman it never easy to come in and just keep going and so, as an opener I wanted to take that extra responsibility and I knew that if I bat more often than not, we will end up on the winning side", said the 26-year-old wicketkeeper. Now Pollard had a season disappointing enough to be left out for four successive games. But I was backing myself.

With this victory, Mumbai is now sitting at the fourth spot with 12 points, while Punjab has slipped to the sixth spot.
