IPL 2018: MI Vs KXIP, Highlights: Bumrah guides MI to sensational 3-run; Rahul's 94 goes in vain

After Chris Gayle's early dismissal, KL Rahul and Aaron Finch stitched 111 runs for the second wicket, however after a few wickets in the end overs, Kings XI Punjab could not get over the line.

Mumbai had been there before.

Coming back to MI vs KXIP IPL Match Highlights, MI couldn't have had a worse start in a must-win match for them. Lost the plot in the middle, could have got 10-15 runs more.

Ben Cutting added 4 runs off 7 balls while Mitchell McClenaghan (11 9off 7, 1 four, 1 six) and Mayank Markande (7 off 5, 1 four) remained unbeaten. Hardik and me are good friends and I felt like it would be nice to collect some jerseys and to bring that tradition in cricket as well. "On some days, it doesn't work", he said. I expected some dip, that's what has happened.

"It doesn't change at the last moment [the plan when I'm running in]". I always feel that if you have done it before, you can do it again. So you don't think of opinions or what is going on outside. But everything's a learning and I'm learning from these games. In this game, I was backing my plan still and I had the belief that I'll be able to bowl a good over. It was probably about the par score (186 by MI) on that wicket.

Andrew Tye again bowled a wonderful bowling spell where he took four wickets after giving just 16 runs in his quota of four overs.

"We already knew he (Rahul) had been batting well throughout the tournament", Bumrah said. Rahul was forced to play an ambitious shot as he tried to hit the bowler's off-cutter only to mistime it and being caught in the deep. Star Sports is the official broadcaster. "He's that Mr. Reliable". His two overs in the powerplay went for only five runs and fetched three wickets. He's a threat when he is bowling defensively.

"I haven't been the best death bowler in the last 18 months".

Kings XI required 17 from the last over but fell short, leaving themselves sixth in the eight-team table on 12 points, while Mumbai assumed fourth spot with 12 points.

Also, apart from Tye and Mujeeb, none of their bowlers showed any steel.

The right-handed Pollard struck five fours and three sixes in an up-tempo 23-ball innings, while Pandya's knock was more measured, requiring the same number of deliveries and including a four and a pair of sixes. "Whatever we asked from the boys, they came and delivered in the middle", Rohit said after the match. "Leaving him out was a very tough decision". Sure, you can look at it and say we lost momentum after that break but at the same time we didn't have anyone else stand up.
