This is how the points table looks right now. 

00:32 (IST)

Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians captain: Holding up nicely. Obviously you feel nice after a win. I thought we played a perfect game. Whatever we asked of the boys, they came out and delivered. It's never been easy for us since the past few years. We always knew it was going to be a good pitch and a high-scoring game. But we fell 10-15 runs short. The bowlers came out and delivered. Pollard has always been a match winner. As a team, we thought it's time for to get him back. Nothing taking away from JP Duminy, he wasn't getting enough opportunities. But we thought if someone was going to bat down the order, Pollard was the right choice. (On Bumrah) Absolutely right. I think Bumrah has come a long way. He is the one who is taking the responsibility for the last two years. Malinga will always be missed but since he's gone, we've known Bumrah is the one to take the charge.  He might not be up there in the wickets column, but what he does for us is more important.

00:29 (IST)

Jasprit Bumrah: Clarity is very important wen you're bowling in the death. When I am clear it is easy to execute. It doesn't change at the last moment.  Even on a bad day when a batsman hits you, you just have to execute your plan.That is my basic plan to have clarity. He is batting really throughout the season. Timing the ball from first game. Difficult to bowl to such a batsman. But I was backing myself. I was clear and it was a good day and it worked. His wicket was very important. On this wicket where the slower ball was bowled on a good length, it was gripping, so I looked to bowl a dipper and it worked. I was able to execute it, so it is a good day.

00:26 (IST)

Jasprit Bumrah is the Man of the Match.

00:16 (IST)

KL Rahul's brilliant knock goes in vain. Wonder what this Punjab team would have looked like had he not been there. MI hang on to a loose thread but they hang on. McClenaghan does push ups to celebrate the win. A lot of exercise still left however.

KXIP captain, Ravichandran Ashwin: Pretty blank at this point of time.We were in the chase all along. Pretty professional batting performance. Just didn't look to work out in the end. It look like a clinical romp when those two (Rahul and Finch) were batting. Credit to Bumrah showed why he is one of the very best and once again proved what a good bowler he is. Today was one of those days where he had to cap off a victory and do it for ourselves. Now we have look at other results and depend on some luck. Played well tonight but. We will were very abstract about our performance in the last game and spoke about our best batsmen taking it deep. Credit to both KL and Aaron. He is looking like a million dollars this time. It's very difficult to say what Rahul has done right or wrong - he's hardly mistimed a ball this season. Hopefully fingers crossed.

KXIP in IPL - 11:
 
First six matches: 5 wins, 1 defeat

00:07 (IST)

Mumbai Indians win by 3 runs. The defending champions are still alive in the tournament. They move into the top 4 with 12 points and a +0.38 Net run rate.

Ball 6: FOUR! McClenaghan doesn't bowl a wide or a no-ball. It is a legitimate delivery into Tiwary's body, who is able to swivel and steer it past short fine leg for a boundary, but is no good as Mumbai Indians hold their nerve to win a thriller.

00:06 (IST)

Ball 5: 1 bye. Terrific bouncer under pressure from the big Kiwi. Patel misses the pull and Kishan throws it back into the play, giving it back to the bowler, who runs back instead of throwing it on the stumps. 8 off 1 balls.

IPL 2018, Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium, latest update and cricket scores: KL Rahul is ensuring KXIP are well in it. The battle is surely between Bumrah and Rahul now as Cutting's over costs 15 runs.

23 needed off 12 deliveries.

Preview: Mumbai Indians will be desperate for a win against Kings XI Punjab to keep their play-off hopes alive when they square-off in a crucial Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.

Just when Mumbai's dream of making it to the final four was on the verge of getting shattered, the Rohit Sharma-led brigade came up with a spirited show to register a hat-trick of wins before faltering against Rajasthan Royals in their previous game.

Mumbai have to win both their remaining two matches to keep their chances alive for advancing to the play-offs.

With 10 points, the three-time champions are placed at the sixth spot in the IPL points table while their opponents are a spot ahead with 12 points in their kitty.

Mumbai will once again rely on opener Suryakumar Yadav, who has been consistent with the bat, amassing 473 runs from 12 innings.

The other opener Evin Lewis also got back his touch in the last match, hitting a 42-ball 60.

However, Mumbai's middle order failed miserably including skipper Rohit.

Barring his match-winning knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rohit has failed to live up to the expectations this season.

The Pandya brothers -- Hardik and Krunal -- will also need to dish out something special if they are to stand any chance of making it to the final four.

In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik and left-arm pacer Mitchell McClenaghan will have to bowl accurately to get rid of the likes of the in-form Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle.

On the other hand, despite being a place ahead, Punjab lag behind Mumbai in net run-rate.

The Ravichandran Ashwin-led side, who started their IPL campaign on a rousing note, faltered in the business end of the league, losing five of their last six games.

Punjab suffered their worst defeat of the season in their last outing when Royal Challengers Bangalore hammered them by 10 wickets, a game where both the batsmen and bowlers succumbed before Kohli's men.

Punjab's batting mostly relies on openers Rahul and Gayle as the duo have accumulated 558 and 350 runs respectively.

The Punjab openers have been a major reason behind their success as the two have handed a perfect start to their side on several occasions in this year's edition.

Karun Nair has been inconsistent with 247 runs so far, while veteran Yuvraj Singh and Mayank Agarwal are yet to make their presence felt in the middle-order.

Punjab will be relieved by the fact that Aaron Finch returned to form with a 34 & 26 during the loss to Kolkata Knight Riders and RCB, respectively.

In the bowling department, Australian pacer Andrew Tye (20 wickets) and Afghan teenaged spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman (14 wickets) have been brilliant.

Pacer Ankit Rajpoot (eight wickets), off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (six wickets) and medium-pacer Mohit Sharma (six wickets) need to raise the bar against Mumbai, after going wicketless against Bangalore.

Squads:

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mustafizur Rahman, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Ishan Kishan (Wicket-keeper), Rahul Chahar, Evin Lewis, Saurabh Tiwary, Ben Cutting, Pradeep Sangwan, Jean-Paul Duminy, Tajinder Singh, Sharad Lumba, Siddhesh Lad, Aditya Tare, Mayank Markande, Akila Dananjaya, Anukul Roy, Mohsin Khan, MD Nidheesh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Adam Milne.

Kings XI Punjab: Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin (Captain), Yuvraj Singh, Karun Nair, Lokesh Rahul (Wicket-keeper), Chris Gayle, David Miller, Aaron Finch, Marcus Stoinis, Mayank Agarwal, Ankit Rajpoot, Manoj Tiwary, Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Barinder Sran, Andrew Tye, Akshdeep Nath, Ben Dwarshuis, Pardeep Sahu, Mayank Dagar, Manzoor Dar
