  • Wow! Time to take rest because even for the fans and others, this was a exhausting one. A proper T20 thriller was played at the Wankhede Stadium and at the end, Kieron Pollard takes the honours after playing a blinder of a knock. He single-handedly took the match away from Punjab, and he will remember this for a long time. Tough loss for Punjan to take. 

    That's all we have for now. Hope you have enjoyed the coverage of the match. We will be back again for tomorrow's Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings match. See you then! 

  • Kieron Pollard, MoM: I would like to thank God. I decided to bat higher because I enjoy batting at Wankhede. The plan was to attack Ashwin as spinners were not doing great. Unfortunately it didn't happen but it was about staying calm. It was a difficult pitch to bowl at and good to bat on, so we did well with the ball after the start they got. We did pull things back in the middle overs a bit but lost the plot at the end. Again, can't be harsh on the bowlers. We finished on the right end of the result and thanks to God for that to

  • Kieron Pollard is the Man of the Match for his knock of 83 off 31

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    Drama at Wankhede. Rajpoot gives away initially with a six off a no ball then a four of a free hit to nearly finish the game in one ball. But Pollard couldn't deliver the finishing blow as he hit a short pitch ball straight down mid wickets throat. Alzari Joseph had two to get off the last ball in the end and showed good composure by not going for the glory hit when he saw a full toss. Instead he just stroked it past the bowler and ran hard to take his side home. The legend of Pollard at Mumbai keeps getting bigger and bigger. This team worships him in the dressing room. This crowd adores him in the stands. And he gives them what they want: A warrior who never stops believing. What a player. What a man. 

  • Ravichandran Ashwin

    "Rajpoot injured his finger in the first over so we knew it will be a problem. We were little up and down with our catching. It was a par score, with the dew falling, Shami was excellent but we couldn't get through. Sam was obviously under the pump, it's his first experience in such a situation so he'll definitely get richer with the experience."

  • After 20 overs,Mumbai Indians 198/7 ( Alzarri Joseph 15 , Rahul Chahar 1)

    What a thriller we witnessed! Mumbai Indians pulled it off thanks to Pollard's knock and some smart batting from Alzarri Joseph. He didn't panic and played the last ball like anyother one and ran two. Mumbai maintain their winning run, three in three matches.  

  • MUMBAI INDIANS WIN!

    Alzarri Joseph pushes the ball to long-on and runs two. What a game! They did it only because of one man – Kieron Pollard! 

  • 19.5: One run again!

    Joseph will bat for the final ball. Two needed from one.

    Alzarri Joseph doesn't take the advantage of another full-toss.

  • 19.2: OUT! GONE!

    My goodness! A short-ball from Rajpoot. Pollard sends this one straight to the deep mid-wicket fieldder. 4 needed from 4 balls.

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    A horror night for Sam Curran ends in the 19th over with Pollard collecting two sixes and a four. Mumbai Indians need 15 off the final over now with Pollard on strike. Who has the heart to bowl this?

  • 19.1: FOUR

    A free-hit. A full toss and a four from Pollard on the leg-side!  

  • 19.1: SIX! AND A NO-BALL! 

    That's it! That's the end of Punjab. A low full-toss and Pollard sends the ball over deep square-leg. 

  • After 19 overs,Mumbai Indians 183/6 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 73 , Alzarri Joseph 12)

    Pollard, you genius! He knew he could take his team home and with that confidence, he smashed 17 runs off the penultimate over. THey need 15 from the last six balls.

  • BOOOOM!

    What a player! This time he goes over long-on and that's huge one. I mean, massive! 

  • BANG!

    Sam Curran looks out of sorts today or maybe Pollard is just too much for him. Length ball and another six over long-off. 

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    Shami pulls it back slightly in the eighteenth over but has he provided enough cushion to the lesser experienced Punjab bowlers who now need to defend 16 an over. It's still not clear if Rajpoot can come back from the dugout and and bowl his final over. 

  • Width in the very fist ball from Curran and Pollard finds the boundary on the off side. He's doing it all alone. 

  • After 18 overs,Mumbai Indians 166/6 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 56 , Alzarri Joseph 12)

    Two overs remaining and Mumbai need 32 runs. It's not impossible because Kieron Pollard is still there for them. Shami finishes his quota of four overs and he gives away just 21 runs and picks three wickets. Sam Curran to bowl the next over. 

  • A much-needed one for Mumbai. Alzarri Joseph makes room and smashes it over covers. 

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    Two sixes in the seventeenth over bowled by Curran keeps Mumbai Indians above the required run rate. Who's next asks Pollard with another flat six over square leg to end that over. 

  • After 17 overs,Mumbai Indians 158/6 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 55 , Alzarri Joseph 5)

    Sam Curran comes back well after conceding a six in the first ball but then spoils it by bowling a full-toss to Pollard in the finall ball. That one goes for a six as well. Mumbai are still in the match thanks to their captain.

    22 v KXIP, Wankhede,  2019*

  • 50 for Pollard!

    A juicy full toss and Pollard sends it over deep square-leg boundary. The game's not done yet.  

  • WOW!

    No feet movement at all but that's not a problem for Pollard. He targets straight and gets the distance. 

  • After 16 overs,Mumbai Indians 144/6 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 42 , Alzarri Joseph 4)

    What a match Shami is having! He gives away just four runs from his first spell and now comes back to take two big wickets. Hopes are fading for Mumbai, but they still have Pollard in the middle. He needs to do a Andre Russell here. 

  • Short ball and Alzarri Joseph pulls it for four. Henriques does well to attept a catch there. 

  • OUT!

    Shami is doing it for his team. A slower one and Krunal Pandya hands a simple catch to covers fielder. Krunal Pandya c Miller b Shami 1(2)

  • Shami strikes in his second spell!

    Not-so-great shot from Hardik Pandya as David Miller takes an easy catch at long-on. Hardik Pandya c Miller b Shami 19(13)  

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    Who would want to bet against Pollard and his favorite partner in crime Pandya at the other end. You talk about intimidating bowling in cricket. These two are as intimidating as it gets in the game if you are running in with the ball. Pollard took Curran to the cleaners first. Ashwin's variations were dismantled. If these two are there at the end, then Mumbai will fancy their chances. 

  • After 15 overs,Mumbai Indians 135/4 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 41 , Hardik Pandya 19)

    Good over considering the situation of the match. Hardus Viljoen is getting his yorkers spot on. Just seven runs from the first five balls and dot to end the over. The required run is 12.6.

  • After 14 overs,Mumbai Indians 128/4 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 40 , Hardik Pandya 13)

    Pollard and Hardik punish Ashwin! Not a great one from the captain who first concedes a four and then suffers against Pollard who smashes two huge sixes over the long-on. 19 off the over and Mumbai need 70 from 36 balls.

  • A hugeeeee one! He makes it look so simple! 

  • Carrom ball but it's nothing compared to Pollard's power. Sails over long-on

  • Short ball from Ashwin and Hardik sends the ball to the leg side boundary.  

  • After 13 overs,Mumbai Indians 109/4 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 26 , Hardik Pandya 8)

    After conceding nine runs from the first two balls, Hardul Viljoen does well to give away just six from the rest of the balls. He bowls a few good yorkers with good pace. 

  • The first one is a five wides and the next one goes in the gap behind the square wicket.  Hardik Pandya is off the mark. 

  • After 12 overs,Mumbai Indians 99/4 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 25 , Hardik Pandya 0)

    A good over for Mumbai turned bad by the time last ball is bowled. Pollard hits two sixes and four but the last ball resulted in a run out of Ishan Kishan.

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    Watch our for low flying objects if you are in the stands at the Wankhede. Pollard is hitting them hard and he is hitting them flat. The required run rate is still on the higher side, but one thing Mumbai have in their favour is that they don't have to worry about a strategy. They can clear their minds and smash everything in sight from here on. 

  • RUN OUT! 

    Superb from bowler Sam Curran who picks the ball in no time and ensures the non-striker Ishan Kishan doesn't cross the line. Ishan Kishan run out (Sam Curran) 7(10

  • Brutal from Pollard! 

    Length ball and Pollard doesn't hesitate to smash it over the bowler's head. 

  • Change of length from Curran. Bowls a fuller one and Pollard hits it through mid-wicket. Could've been a stunner if the fielder pulled off the catch. 

  • Short ball and Pollard sends it over deep square-leg boundary. He's taking charge now.

  • After 11 overs,Mumbai Indians 76/3 ( Kieron Pollard (C) 9 , Ishan Kishan 6)

    Mumbai Indians are looking to up the ante. Not so great over from Ashwin, who gives width to Ishan Kishan and the batsman smashes it over covers. In the last ball, Pollard punches one over bowler's head for a six. Miller tries his best with a jump but there was too much power behind the ball,

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    KXIP scored 104 runs in their last 10 overs while MI needs to score 133 runs from their last 10 overs.

IPL 12 Match 24 MI vs KXIP at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai: What a thriller we witnessed! Mumbai Indians pulled it off thanks to Pollard's knock and some smart batting from Alzarri Joseph.

IPL 2019, MI vs KXIP, Today's Match Preview: Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians will look to maintain their winning momentum when they face Ravichandran Ashwin's Kings XI Punjan at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.

Mumbai have won their last two matches, having beaten Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. It's Mumbai bowlers who have getting the job done for the team. With the likes of Alzarri Joseph and Jason Behrendorff now playing, Mumbai have started make impact with the ball. In their last match against the Sunrisers, Joseph, who was making his debut, picked six wickets, conceding just 12 runs – the best figures in the IPL history.

The Kings XI Punjab are also coming into the match with a win. They had defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match so they would also look to maintain the winning run.

KL Rahul has been in tremendous form, scoring three half-centuries already in the tournament while Mayank Agarwal is also showing his abilities with the bat. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Ashwin will once again be the key when it comes to spin bowling and the team will bank on all-around efforts of Sam Curran.

It will be also interesting to see the battle between Punjab batsman Chris Gayle and West Indian cricketer Joseph.
