IPL 2018: Bumrah's spell in death overs keeps hopes alive for playoffs

But it was Pollard, brought back into Mumbai's side, that stunned Kings XI with a 23-ball 50.

Mumbai Indians' teammates congratulate Mitchell McClenaghan as the big Kiwi left-armer takjes another IPL wicket. But in the penultimate over, Bumrah struck a massive blow to Kings XI by dismissing Rahul.

In the 11th season of IPL 2018 KXIP have six wins from 12 matches, while Mumbai have five wins from the same number of matches. In this crucial game, KXIP would've hoped that the big Jamaican opener would deliver.

After a cautious start, Krunal stuck two consecutive sixes and a four in the 12th over off Marcus Stonis, while Pollard followed it up with two sixes and as many fours in the next two overs. Are these wickets coming better late than never for MI? But KL Rahul continued his magnificent form as along with Aaron Finch, he steadied the ship. He scored 27 runs off 14 balls out of which 24 runs were scored off fours and sixes.

Australian batsman Aaron Finch is another batsman who hasn't lived up to the hype.

Mumbai Indians will host the Kings XI Punjab in their final at their home ground, Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

Even though Evin Lewis was bowled for 9, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan's attacking intent ensured the run rate didn't slip. The battle is surely between Bumrah and Rahul now as Cutting's over costs 15 runs.

Kieron Pollard hit 50 off 23. He gets to the milestone in just 22 balls as Mi go past 150.

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

Andrew Tye was once again clinical for Punjab as he ended with another 4-fer. Punjab's Middle-order is leading by Karun Nair, has done his job well but he has not got any support apart from Lokesh Rahul. Just one change for us, Kieron Pollard replaces JP Duminy.

Jasprit Bumrah bowled an inspiring spell as Mumbai Indians defended 186 to keep their chances of qualification for the Indian Premier League qualifiers alive with a three-run win over Kings XI Punjab in Mumbai yesterday.

MI have had a mixed season so far this year.

Both teams lost their last respective games where MI lost to RR, while KXIP suffered an embarrassing loss to RCB at a margin of 10 wickets with more than 10 overs were remaining.

Thursday's IPL encounter sees Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore need a win against table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad to stay in the playoff hunt. It was their way of egging the defending champions, who faced a must-win situation to be in contention for next week's play-offs.

At the Wankhede Stadium, out of the seven matches played between the two teams, MI won just three games while KXIP won four of them.
