Kings XI go down fighting

Mumbai escape with a thrilling 3-run win despite Rahul’s superb 94

Mumbai, May 16

Seamer Jasprit Bumrah snapped up three crucial wickets as defending champions Mumbai Indians kept their play-off hopes alive by notching up a thrilling three-run win over Kings XI Punjab in a crucial Indian Premier League match here on Wednesday. Chasing 187 to win, KL Rahul blasted 10 fours and three sixes in his 60-ball 94-run innings and shared a 111-run second-wicket partnership with Aaron Finch (46) to take Punjab to the brink of victory but Bumrah scalped three wickets in his second spell to derail the chase.

Mumbai Indians registered their sixth win to join Kings XI and Rajasthan Royals at 12 points in the points table.  

Kings XI were comfortably placed at 145/1 in the 16 over when Bumrah came back for a second spell and removed Finch and Marcus Stoinis (1) before dismissing Rahul in the 19th over.

Earlier, Australian seamer Andrew Tye returned figures of 4/16 and skipper Ravichandran Ashwin 2/18 to restrict Mumbai Indians to 186/8.  West Indian Kieron Pollard struck a blistering fifty to rescue defending champions Mumbai Indians from a mid-innings slump and help them to a competitive 186/8.

MI got off to a flying start, reaching 57/1 after five overs but they lost three wickets in quick succession, including two off successive balls, against the pace bowling of Tye  before Pollard (50 off 23 balls) and Krunal Pandya (32 off 23 balls) resurrected the stuttering innings. — PTI
