IPL 2018, MI vs KXIP: Hits and Misses

17 May 2018

That Mumbai reached a competitive score of 186-8 was largely due to the efforts of Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard.

Andrew Tye finished with four wickets to his account and was the most impressive bowler for Punjab.

KL Rahul's steady knock kept KXIP in the hunt while the right-hander bagged the orange cap and became the first to cross 600 runs in this IPL. Wily medium-pacer Andrew Tye, who finished with figures of 4-0-16-4, was the man responsible to keep Mumbai in check time and again.

KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya did something which nobody has ever seen on a cricket field but are used to watching in football. Their path will be made easier if Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings beat Kings XI Punjab. The battle is surely between Bumrah and Rahul now as Cutting's over costs 15 runs.

Punjab's batting mostly relies on openers Rahul and Gayle as the duo have accumulated 558 and 350 runs respectively.

The Mumbai Indians meet the Kings XI Punjab in a must win game for both the teams at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Then they should make the cut even if they lose their last match, as their NRR is much better than that of Royals and Kings XI. Whereas SRH as mentioned above has already booked a spot for the Playoffs but are coming back from two consecutive losses.

That dismissal ended the crucial 111-run second wicket partnership between Rahul and Aaron Finch (45 off 35 balls) to bring Mumbai back into the game.

The best RCB can reach is 14 points where they can tie with other sides and race ahead by virtue of a positive NRR. Umesh had already put the KXIP on the back foot by striking twice in the 4th over sending both their openers back.

Recalled after being dropped for poor form, which had yielded a mere 76 runs in his six previous innings, Pollard top-scored with exactly 50 as Mumbai, sent in at the Wankhede Stadium, gathered 183 for five from their 20 overs. The very next delivery, Yadav tried to go for a short-arm jab to deep square-leg but could only nick to the keeper. With 17 runs required off the last over, Axar Patel and Manoj Tiwary found the boundaries twice, but couldn't get them over the finishing line.

However, Mumbai's middle order failed miserably including skipper Rohit.

Kings XI's chase started well enough, with Chris Gayle (18 off 11) and the in-form Rahul scoring 28 from the first three overs, before the former was bounced out - as has proven to be a habit in recent matches - by New Zealand left-armer Mitchell McClenaghan (2-37). Bumrah was brought on to bowl in the 19th overs, and he snapped up KL Rahul on 94, when he had nearly seen Punjab through.
