  • KL Rahul was awarded the Stylish Player of the Match

Both Mumbai and Punjab have played 12-12 matches, with five wins and seven losses Mumbai has 1o points, and they are now 6th at the points table, while their opponent, has won six games out of 12.

Mumbai Indians, who were put in to bat, got off to yet another strong start courtesy Suryakumar Yadav's early assault against Mohit Sharma and Ankit Rajpoot.

Kings XI Punjab won the toss and elected to field. Rahul's dismissal spelt doom for KXIP as the visitors went down by three runs.

With 10 points, the three-time champions are placed at the sixth spot on the IPL points table while their opponents are a spot ahead with 12 points in their kitty. He also became the first player to bring up 600 runs this season, reclaiming the Orange Cap. Jasprit Bumrah proved too good for them in the end as the pacer returned figures of 3 for 15 to help Mumbai seal a thriller. Then they went into a seven-day break. A win will secure them a top four berth while even with a defeat, there remains a possibility of going through. They had to have enough runs to defend. Meanwhile, this will be 13th match for both MI and KXIP. Suryakumar was caught behind off the thigh pad off the next ball. Then Pollard scored a half-century in 23 balls.

Tye became the first bowler in history of IPL to bag 3 four-fors in a season and Ashwin came back late in the 16th over to dismiss Pollard.

The onus was on MI's comeback man Kieron Pollard, who was dropped for the previous four matches.

Wickets fell and runs came.

WICKET! MI lose another one as Ben Cutting finds Axar Patel at deep mid-wicket.

WICKET! Ravichandran Ashwin strikes as he removes Pollard for 50.

Needing to win at 9.35 an over, KXIP were in the hunt until the penultimate over.

In the most recent match against RCB, Kings XI Punjab were bundled out for just 88 runs. KXIP will now head to Pune to face their last league opponents - Chennai Super Kings, who will be aiming to secure a top two finish.

Rahul-Finch set it up. They calculated their chase during their 111-run second wicket partnership in 74 deliveries, taking it over by over and though they dealt in singles and the odd boundary. MI could have been restricted to a smaller total had Ashwin bowled himself or Tye during the Pollard carnage.

But Jasprit Bumrah struck twice in the 17th over to send Finch packing four short of what would have been a well deserved fifty before bouncing out Marcus Stoinis (1).

And, Bumrah hit the final nail into KXIP's coffin by removing the exhausted Rahul, who was six short of the century.
