Jasprit Bumrah is the Man of the Match for his figures of 3/15 in 4 overs.
MI beat KXIP by 3 runs.
McClenaghan to bowl the last over. Yuvraj swings hard at the second ball but misses. CAUGHT! Yuvraj connects with the 3rd ball but doesn’t get enough on it as Lewis takes the catch at sweeper cover.
Axar Patel clubs the next ball, a full toss this time, over deep midwicket for a SIX. McClenaghan sends down a bouncer and Axar misses with the bat but they steal a single. 8 runs needed off the last ball. Tiwary on strike and he pulls it for a FOUR at backward square leg but it’s in vain as KXIP fall short of 2 runs.
KXIP 183/5 after 20 overs.
WICKET! Yuvraj c Lewis b McClenaghan 1 (3)
Bumrah to bowl the 19th. CAUGHT! What an impact Bumrah has made for Mumbai, he sends in a slower delivery and Rahul batting on 94 goes for the big one but is outdone by the change of pace and sends the ball into the hands of Cutting at long on. Great innings by the KXIP man but is it enough to take them across the line? Yuvraj walks in to bat.
Bumrah ends his spell with figures of 3/15. Great bowling by the MI bowler.
KXIP need 17 from 6 balls to win.
KXIP 170/4 after 19 overs.
WICKET! KL Rahul c Cutting b Bumrah 94 (60)
Ben Cutting comes into the attack. Axar sends the 2nd ball high but gets no distance on it, lucky for him there’s no one under it when it lands. Rahul times the pull beautifully as he sends the 3rd ball to backward square leg for a FOUR. Rahul then opens his stance and uses a reverse sweep lifting the ball over short third man for back-to-back FOURs. Another one! Rahul pulls off another reverse sweep for his third consecutive FOUR, sending the ball down to third man. What an over, 15 runs come off it.
KXIP need 23 off 12 balls to win.
KXIP 164/3 after 18 overs.
Bumrah comes back into the attack and he immediately gives MI the breakthrough. Finch tries to hit the fuller delivery straight down the ground but he only sends it miles up in the sky and Hardik keeps his cool to take the catch. Rahul sends the 3rd ball through extra cover and it was racing to the boundary but Krunal puts in a full length dive along the ground and saves the boundary right in front of the ropes.
CAUGHT! Bumrah sends in a quick bouncer to Stoinis who was crammed for space as he went for the pull. The ball glances off his gloves and Kishan laps it up between his gloves.
KXIP 149/3 after 17 overs.
WICKET! Stoinis c Kishan b Bumrah 1 (2)
WICKET! Finch c Hardik b Bumrah 46 (35)
Markande is back into the attack. Rahul goes for the big shot on the 4th ball but he doesn’t connect cleanly and Krunal does well to save the boundary at third man. SIX! Rahul launches the 5th ball straight down the ground over long on for a big one. Another one! Rahul takes the same route this time but it’s hit much more powerfully as it flies into the upper tiers of the stands for back-to-back SIXES.
KXIP 145/1 after 16 overs.
Hardik is back into the attack. Sends down two consecutive wides after Finch gets a single off the first ball. He recovers well as he gives away just 6 runs off the over.
KXIP now need 60 from 30 balls to win.
KXIP 127/1 after 15 overs.
Krunal to bowl his last over. Finch slams the 3rd ball straight down the ground over the bowler’s head for a FOUR. 10 runs off the over.
KXIP 121/1 after 14 overs.
McClenaghan back to bowl. Finch picks up a single to bring up the 100 for KXIP. Rahul then pulls the 2nd ball beautifully sending it past short fine leg for a FOUR. Finch slaps the 4th ball down the ground to long off for another FOUR. Good effort by Cutting to save the boundary but his legs touch the ropes as he slides to keep the ball in. 12 runs off the over.
KXIP 111/1 after 13 overs.
Bumrah back into the attack. Rohit Sharma goes back to his spearhead in a bid to break the partnership here. Bumrah does well but doesn’t pick up any wickets as he restricts the batsmen to just 4 runs off the over.
KXIP 99/1 after 12 overs.
Krunal back to bowl his 3rd. Finch plays a powerful sweep sending the ball zipping past short fine leg for a FOUR. Rahul plays the last ball towards long on to pick up a single, that brings up his 6th fifty of this season’s IPL.
KXIP 95/1 after 11 overs.
FIFTY up for Rahul 50 (36)
Hardik back into the attack. Rahul sends the 5th ball to deep backward point to pick up a double, that brings up the 50-run partnership between Rahul and Finch. Good over by Hardik, just 6 runs come off it.
KXIP 86/1 after 10 overs.
Markande to continue. He keeps it tight, giving away only singles in the over. Mumbai will need more of this to put some pressure on the KXIP batsmen.
