IPL 2018: MI vs KXIP IPL Match Highlights Match 50

Mumbai Indians’ Jasprit Bumrah and Kings XI Punjab’s Andrew Tye

They were chasing and defending successfully and even completed a chase of 125 in only 11.1 overs against Kolkata Knight Riders to go on top of the table. Between then, Mumbai went from 71/3 to 151/5 in just seven overs.

Kings XI Punjab has squandered its position of advantage with a series of three consecutive defeats.

KXIP also has 12 points, but it slipped to No. 6 on an inferior net run-rate than both Mumbai and Rajasthan Royals.

The primary reason behind their slide is their dependence on individual performances. The battle is surely between Bumrah and Rahul now as Cutting's over costs 15 runs.

The problems begin after them. As conceded by the opener himself, KXIP's middle order has been a cause for concern in the ongoing season.

Continuing his glorious run with the bat, Suryakumar started off in his customary style before breaking loose as he smacked rookie pacer Ankit Rajpoot for two fours and as many sixes to milk 21 runs off the second over of the innings before Tye was employed into the attack.

The turning point of the match came in the penultimate over of the match when Rahul was caught off Bumrah at long off with KXIP still needing 20 runs for victory.

"[It] doesn't really matter if I take 4 for 16 or someone else takes 4 for 16". Only two matches are left until the next round of play.

Why didn't Ashwin bowl till the death?

MI got off to a flying start, reaching 57-1 after five overs but they lost three wickets in quick succession, including two off successive balls, against the pace bowling of Andrew Tye (4-16) before Pollard (50 off 23 balls) and Krunal Pandya (32 off 23 balls) resurrected the stuttering innings. "It's hard. We were preparing like that since the first game but we are not able to close off games, so now after halfway stage of the tournament, we are able to close games so we are focusing on that". "We figured 186 was probably about par score on that wicket". Looks like there's dew here, we would like to bowl first and chase the total down. It means obviously someone else has let you down and it's not a whole team effort.

"We've seen this happening a lot in football". But we lost the plot in the middle while batting, we could have got 10-15 runs more. So yeah, fair credit to Mumbai.

Just four games back, Rohit Sharma led MI's fate looked uncleared. When asked if he took anything from Tye's spell, Bumrah said he prefers to stick to his own bowling plans.

The stars of the night for the home team were Kieron Pollard, who marked his return return to the team with a sterling fifty, and the ever-reliable Jasprit Bumrah.

Last night, the Wankhede Stadium witnessed an fantastic inning from Kings XI Punjab's KL Rahul who scored 94 off 60 balls against Mumbai Indians at the IPL 2018. So, looking at the do or die situation, everything of the teams is at stake.

"That's how the IPL is it's just between me and him, all the 8 teams we compete very hard and that has what made this the biggest tournament in the world", the opener added.
