That's it! MI back to winning ways, beat KXIP by 25 runs. 

McClenaghan bowled some lethal yorkers at the death following Bumrah's exploits in the previous over. KXIP lost the momentum in the middle overs, Maxwell hit his first fifty in 15 matches but then kept it for too late. Mumbai Indians bowled well in the middle overs and then Bumrah scalped Maxwell to blow away any chance that KXIP had. Miller too didn't get going and KXIP suffered yet another embarrassing defeat.  KXIP lost half the battle giving away 189 on a big ground. Bangar too was critical of the bowlers at the post match presentation.

Double blow for KXIP!

The Game all but over for KXIP.

After 18 overs, Punjab 147/5 ( David Miller 15 , Axar Patel 0)

Bumrah has turned the match on his head. Miller had hit Pollard for a six over deep mid-wicket where Krunal's slam dunk effort went in vain as he couldn't hold on to a catch. But then McClenaghan build the pressure giving away just six runs. Bumrah pounche dupon it with two wickets in the 18th over and conceding just 2 runs. 20 runs and 2 wickets off the last 3 overs. 49 needed off 12 now.

OUT! Sound of timber. Bumrah with his special yorker. NS Naik b Bumrah 1 (3b 0x4 0x6)

On the off stump. Naik goes for a wild swing. Misses and finds his off stump uprooted.

Axar Patel is the new batsman.

Apr 25, 2016 - 23:20 (IST)

OUT! Maxwell drags it on. Bumrah strikes. GJ Maxwell b Bumrah 56 (39b 5x4 1x6)

It's that slower one that does the trick. Lenght delivery outside off, Maxwell looks to swing across the line but is done in by the change of pace and ends up dragging it onto the stumps. 

Nikhil Naik is the new batsman.

Apr 25, 2016 - 23:15 (IST)

Apr 25, 2016 - 23:13 (IST)

FIFTY for Maxwell! He gets it after 25 innings in IPL. It was a long wait! 50 off 33 balls with five fours and one six. He is crucial to KXIP's chances now.

Apr 25, 2016 - 23:11 (IST)

After 15 overs, Punjab 121/3 ( Glenn Maxwell 48 , Miller 0)

Just when Mumbai Indians needed a breakthrough, Southee provided one. Marsh was looking ominous. He hammered a powerful six over long on off Harbhajan, Maxwell then joined with a thumping six off Southee but the NZ bowler bounced back to remove Marsh off the final ball of the 15th over. 26 runs and a wicket off the last 3 overs.

PREVIEW: Even as they struggle to find the winning formula, laggards Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will still fancy their chances when they host Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match in Mohali on Monday.

Mumbai Indians have so far had a mixed bag having won two games against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) while losing four.

On the other hand, KXIP, whose performance in the tournament so far has been pedestrian, have managed to notch
up just one win from five outings and are placed at the bottom of the points table among the eight teams.

The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai side suffered defeats against Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS), Gujarat Lions (GL), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Delhi Daredevils (DD).

In their last match played at Delhi on Saturday, Mumbai lost by 10 runs chasing a victory target of 165. Rohit (65) and Krunal Pandya (36) were unfortunate to get run-out as Mumbai could only manage 154 for seven.

MI initially struggled to get their team combination right, but they did come good with a convincing chase of 170-plus score against Virat Kohli's RCB.

Two-time title winners, MI slumped to defeats in both their home matches this season to IPL debutants Rising Pune
Supergiants (RPS) and Gujarat Lions and have now lost a game in their away campaign as well.

Mumbai's top-order batting has failed to come good so far barring the captain, who was instrumental in both their wins scoring superb half-centuries.

But in most games, the leading batsmen have failed to click as a unit. Martin Guptill, who replaced injured Lendl Simmons, failed to live upto the expectations in his first game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, prompting Mumbai team management to drop him against RCB and Delhi matches.

Much would depend on all-rounder Kieron Pollard as Mumbai look to keep up the pressure on struggling Punjab.
