Only one of those was to be bowled by Jasprit Bumrah. "You always want to bowl a good over but some days it doesn't go your way because at the position where I bowl, it is hard, especially at this ground with the dew going around".

Only Suryakumar Yadav has been among the runs on a consistent basis and MI would be pleased with the return to form of West Indian opener Evin Lewis.

Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians will present a face-to-face challenge in an important knockout match at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. His magnificent spell of 3-15 from his 4 turned the tides in Mumbai's favours and ensured his side took home the points.

He notched up a 22-ball half-century with the help of five boundaries and three sixes before being dismissed by Ashwin.

McClenaghan had 16 runs to defend with Axar Patel and an out-of-form Yuvraj Singh in the middle and he bowled a mix of wide yorkers, length deliveries and bouncers to seal Mumbai's three-run win. A shot away from a hundred, Rahul could only mishit a slower one to long-off to exit for 94 off 60.

Krunal, too, upped the ante and the duo's quickfire partnership set Mumbai up for a 200-plus total.

But just when things seemed good in the middle, Finch was dismissed by pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the 17th over. Finch and Stoinis fell three balls apart in the 17th over bowled by Bumrah, and despite Rahul's innovative hitting in the following over, KXIP's innings disintegrated under pressure.

After the MI vs KXIP IPL Match Highlights, do read what all is involved in today's match. On Wednesday, he was sent down the order in his team's chase against the Mumbai Indians, in what was a very good opportunity for him to show that he still a force to be reckoned with.

"It looks [like a] fairy tale; it looks very easy [that] we come and do it [easily] in the last moment, but it is hard".

On MI's spectacular comeback into the reckoning after a poor beginning in the first half of the tournament, Bumrah said they were closing out games which they had failed to do earlier in the season. But everything is learning and I am learning from these games.
