Mumbai Indians beat Kings by six wickets

Did Rahul pace the chase to perfection? Player of the Match Suryakumar Yadav made 57 runs and gave MI the ideal start in such a situation.

Also for MI, contributions from skipper Rohit Sharma; Krunal and Hardik Pandya are utmost crucial.

Kings XI's last match was a low scoring affair against Sunrisers Hyderabad as they produced a fine bowling display to hold the Sunrisers to 132 but as has happened so often during this tournament, SRH well and truly choked the Kings XI into submission and were eventually bowled out for just 119.

Chris Gayle belted 50 off just 38 balls for Kings XI Punjab. But after Rahul (24 from 20 balls) was dismissed in the seventh over, the innings lost momentum.

Yuvraj (14 off 14 balls), who was promoted up the batting order, once again failed to fire as the out-of-form batsman was the next to depart in the 13th over with Punjab's scorecard reading 96/3. He has scored 76 runs in six innings so far. The Jamaican was slow to begin with; he was two from nine balls, before exploding and adding 48 off the next 31 balls.

But T20 boss, Chris Gayle continued hitting runs and brought his fifty in 39 deliveries. Still, they would be desperate to put up a good show. And he justified that with a half-century. He was dismissed in the following over when he miscued a knuckle ball from Stoinis and the skier was pouched by KL Rahul. The defending champions need to win all six of their remaining games to qualify for the top-four. Rahul Thumps a six and a boundary to finish off the game, making his highest run of IPL. While Rohit's knock was about elegance, Krunal plundered the KXIP bowlers.

Tye and Stoinis both picked up a wicket in the chase but their efforts weren't enough Pandya and Sharma secured the win with an over to spare. It clocked around 145 kph and was bowled short by the bowler as Rahul stayed back and played an upper cut over the third man to send it deep into the stands.

At the end of 10 overs, Mumbai still needed 108 runs and the required run rate was soaring for them. The captain also became the first Indian batsman to hit 300 sixes in T20s. But when all seemed to be going good, Samson pulled medium pacer Tye straight into the hands of Karun Nair in the fifth ball of the 11th over. Ashwin opened the bowling and ended the night with economical figures of 0-23. Considering the current form of KXIP batsmen, and the ground being small, a score of at least around 200 is expected.

Unfortunately for Mumbai it was another loss after such a fine display against Chennai as the depth of the RCB batting order was too great as they conceded 167 from their twenty overs and in reply, Mumbai could only stutter their way to 153.
