Indian Premier League 2018 Match 34 Match Result Mumbai Indians beat Kings XI Punjab by 6 wickets
After 20 overs,Kings XI Punjab 174/6 ( Marcus Stoinis 29 , Ravichandran Ashwin (C) 0)
Punjab finish with a 22-run over. The momentum is with the 'hosts' and Hardik Pandya has to be blamed for this. Just like the previous match against RCB, Mumbai have conceded too many in the final over. That was where Mumbai lost the plot. Will that repeat today? You never know. But one thing is certain, the Mumbai team management must be fuming to allow Punjab to score 174 after that start they had.
Mumbai Indians need 175 to win and survival.
OUT! Terrible running and Mumbai Indians cash in on it. Karun Nair pats this towards point and calls Yuvraj across. But Lewis hurls in a quick throw and Ishan whips the bails off. The umpire takes it upstairs. But Yuvraj knows the decision; he is walking. Another poor outing for the India veteran.

That brings us to the end of today's coverage. Tomorrow, CSK take on RCB at Pune and then Delhi lock horns with Hyderabad at their backyard. Two exciting games wait for us. Do join us. For now, it's time to say goodbye.
Suryakumar Yadav is the Man of the Match.
Suryakumar Yadav: I am enjoying my new role; opening the innings for Mumbai Indians. Pushing it really hard every game, trying to give good starts so that it helps the team to set good totals. For chasing as well, it is very important to have a good start so that the batsmen finish well. (On his thought process as an opener) I am not thinking too much, trying to keep it simple. Feeling really good, trying to improve my game as the matches are passing. But want to finish games too. (Will the attitude change now?) Not at all. Keeping it simple and starting from scratch again.
Ravichandran Ashwin, Kings XI Punjab captain: I thought the wicket was a bit sticky. Even at the toss, I mentioned that. Stoinis, in fact, got runs in the end. otherwise, we would've been more short. It's just a perception. The week off rejuvenated the boys. If we continue playing the fearless cricket, I think we will be fine. Six games to go. It's not about getting three wins but about continuing to play our brand of cricket.
Rohit Sharma, MI captain: I think we are still alive. Good performance tonight. Much needed for us. We needed everyone to come to put a collective effort.We did well to start to restrict their batting unit on this pitch was a great effort from the bowling unit restricting them for 175. And the start we had in our first 10 overs it wasn't really easy, but we backed ourselves and knew the depth in our batting. We needed some momentum, so Hardik was send to bring the momentum and held myself back to finish things off. We've been giving too many at the death but that's how the game goes. I had to bring Jasprit in the 19th over with two set batsmen and if he had struck, it would have made things easier for Hardik with the new batsman in. Plus the longer boundaries would have helped Hardik in the 20th over. It is a factor was us that we are giving too many runs in the death overs, that's why I gave Jasprit the 19th over. It is something we need to look in. Jasprit being one of our strike bowlers, I had to use him really well. It is about being smart at that moment. For us it is important to not look too far ahead. We are taking one game at a time. We need to win games to make it to play offs. Big challenge for us to keep the winning run going. Team is doing everything at individual level. In the past we have won games and then gone on to lose a few. Don't want that to happen again. Today was a perfect night for us, we did exactly what we spoke of. Life is easy for the captain when the plans are executed.

Some stunning hitting there from Krunal Pandya in the end.... did what Hardik should have done, wait, watch and play.... this is why Mumbai paid the big bucks for him. Punjab may have paid the price of shuffling batting order and stifling their own momentum by accommodating Yuvraj. Some bizarre decision making today!
WHAT A FINISH! Mumbai Indians have won by six wickets. A sensational cameo from Krunal Pandya. Who would've thought that Mumbai would win it in the 19th over? But they have and a 56-run off 21 balls unbeaten stand between Rohit Sharma and Krunal has done it for them.
FOUR! Great adjustment. Tye bowls it slow and short, Krunal first wanted to slash but then just guides it over backward point.
After 18 overs,Mumbai Indians 159/4 ( Rohit Sharma (C) 22 , Krunal Pandya 20)
This should be the over that seals it for Mumbai Indians. 20 off it.
16 off 12.
FOUR! An attempted yorker gone wrong. Ends up being a full toss on the pads and Krunal chips it over short fine leg.
After 17 overs,Mumbai Indians 139/4 ( Rohit Sharma (C) 17 , Krunal Pandya 5)
Rohit begins the over with a huge six but fails to score on the next two balls. In fact, gets rapped on the pad on the third ball. Punjab appeal but nothing from the umpire as it was sliding down the leg side. The over ends with two singles and a six.
Mumbai need 36 off 18.
Hardik loses his shape as he tries to hit an off pace cutter from Tye out of the ground. The other Pandya joins Rohit at the crease now. He needs to do exactly what his brother was doing, swing hard and find some boundaries to take the pressure of Rohit at the other end.
After 16 overs,Mumbai Indians 125/4 ( Rohit Sharma (C) 4 , Krunal Pandya 4)
This wicket has made put too much pressure on Rohit Sharma. With 50 needed off 24 at this ground, the game is still wide open. Now it is a game of nerves though.
FOUR! Off the mark is Krunal Pandya with a boundary. Whips this full delivery wide of the midwicket fielder.
OUT! Yikes. Another wicket. This is not looking good for Mumbai. Tye bowls the cutter and Hardik attempts to slog it. Misses. Timber.
Hardik Pandya b Andrew Tye 23(13)
After 15 overs,Mumbai Indians 118/3 ( Hardik Pandya 22 , Rohit Sharma (C) 3)
A good over under pressure. Apart from the six, Mujeeb kept it tight. Eight come in the over.
Never mind Ishan Kishan's wicket, this could still turn against Punjab. Hardik is quite proficient against spin, while Rohit has the ability to hit effortless sixes. Feels like it will come down (once again) to Mujeeb's last two overs...
After 14 overs,Mumbai Indians 110/3 ( Hardik Pandya 15 , Rohit Sharma (C) 2)
Four singles, a double and boundary in the 14th over. 10 come in the over. 65 off 36.
FOUR! Sloppy fielding. Hardik crunches one through cover and Stoinis fails to cut it off at sweeper cover. Probably because the ball spun at the last moment.
Ishan gets too greedy against Mujeeb. After collecting 13 off 5 balls, he goes for a wild heave and gets his stumps uprooted. He could have given Punjab's gun bowler a bit more respect. Rohit and Hardik at the crease now. If Mumbai has to win this, one of these two need to stay till the end.
After 13 overs,Mumbai Indians 100/3 ( Hardik Pandya 7 , )
An over which Mumbai Indians desperately needed but they lost a wicket in the process. Meanwhile, the 100-run mark is up for Mumbai.
OUT! You miss. I hit. Ishan Kishan dances down the ground to his shortish Mujeeb delivery and misses. The ball crashes onto his stumps.
Ishan Kishan b Mujeeb 25(19)
After 12 overs,Mumbai Indians 87/2 ( Ishan Kishan (W) 18 , Hardik Pandya 1)
This is strange. After Suryakumar's wicket, Mumbai Indians have promoted Hardik Pandya up the order. Rohit Sharma is still in the dugout. Wonder what the plan is? Maybe, Hardik has been asked to tonk the spinners? We will find out soon...
Marcus Stoinis is having a great night at Indore. Crucial runs at the end and now the crucial wicket of Suryakumar just at the right time for his team. Good move to send Hardik at number 4 again. He needs to start smoking them from the word go tonight.
SIX! A short delivery around leg from Stoinis and Ishan Kishan helps it on its away over fine leg.
OUT! Huge wicket. Stoinis bowls it short and Suryakumar Yadav tries to muscle a pull over midwicket. He top edges it in the process and Rahul gets underneath it to pouch an easy catch.
Suryakumar Yadav c Rahul b Stoinis 57(42)
FOUR! Stoinis bowls a low full toss and Suryakumar Yadav whips it through square leg where Rajpoot makes a good effort to stop it but fails.
Fifty for Yadav, and he is the batsman to watch out for as Rohit is still in the hut. Ashwin bowls out with half the innings remaining, but then you can take such a gamble with Mujeeb still having three overs to bowl. There's three overs from Axar Patel took.

Preview: Three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Mumbai Indians will look to salvage pride when they face a spirited Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Holkar Cricket Stadium.
The star-studded Mumbai side is languishing at the bottom of the points table with just two wins from eight games.
On the other side, Punjab will be flying high on confidence after being placed third with five wins from seven games and 10 points in their kitty.
Mumbai's batters, including skipper Rohit Sharma, have failed miserably in this year's league.
For Rohit's side, except Suryakumar Yadav, who has 283 runs under his belt in eight matches as an opener, all others have been inconsistent.
The Mumbai skipper also needs to rediscover his own form as he has struggled to get past 20 in six games.
Big hitting West Indian all-rounder Keiron Pollard, in his twilight years, has also been out of touch with just 76 runs from six innings.
South African Jean-Paul Duminy has featured in just a couple of games and played a single innings hitting 23 runs.
Coming to the Pandya brothers Hardik and Krunal, both showed glimpses of their batting prowess in the previous match Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and will aim to bolster the lower order with some lusty blows.
In the bowling department, Mumbai will once again bank on young spinner Mayank Markande, who has so far bagged 11 wickets from eight games with his leg-spin.
The pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McClenaghan have kept things tight while the Pandya brothers have also been amongst the wickets.
On the other hand, Punjab openers Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle have been a major reason behind their success. While Rahul has accumulated 268 runs from seven games, the Caribbean self-proclaimed "Universe Boss" has amassed 252 runs from just four matches.
The duo have handed a perfect start to their side on several occassions in this year's edition.
Karun Nair has also been impressive after 186 runs from six innings but veteran Yuvraj Singh, Aaron Finch and Mayank Agarwal are yet to make their presence felt in the middle.
The trio's poor form could be a cause of concern for the team management.
In the bowling department, skipper Ravichandran Ashwin, along with medium pacer Mohit Sharma add depth to the line-up.
Also, medium pacers Barinder Sran and Andrew Tye, and Afghan spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman shoulder the bulk of the responsibility.
While Australian Tye has nine wickets from seven games with an economy of 7.78, pacer Ankit Rajpoot and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have seven wickets each.
Mumbai will have to win all their remaining matches to make it to the play-offs even as an in-form Punjab start as favourites in Friday's game.
