MI KNOCK AGAINST KXIP KEPT ALIVE FOR PLAYOFF CHANCE – MATCH 50 – MI vs KXIP
Mumbai Indians strong chase and kept themselves alive by defeating KXIP by three runs. Kieron Pollard impressive half century (50 runs of 23 balls) helped MI to put a challengeable total of 186 runs in 20 overs. Rohit Sharma again failed with poor innings and the bad form continues. Ravichandran Ashwin tight bowling attack (3 overs – 18 runs – 2 wickets) and Andrew Tye extraordinary spell of 4 overs 16 runs and 4 wickets somewhat helped to drop the phase of MI in death overs.
KL Rahul such a terrific young man knocked 94 runs of 60 balls & Aaron Finch 46 runs of 35 balls partnership to take Punjab to the brink of a successful run-chase but unfortunately seamer Jasprit Bumrah snapped up the three crucial wickets in his second spell to derail the chase of 186 runs and kept their playoff chance alive by notching up a three runs thrilling win over KXIP and they registered their sixth win placed 4th with 12 points at IPL 2018 points table.
