  • Kings XI Punjab are placed fourth with five wins and three defeats

Mumbai Indians kept their playoff hopes in the IPL alive with a 13-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders in a must-win clash at the Wankhede stadium on Sunday.

MI timed their chase to perfection. Lokesh Rahul (24) in 20 balls, Gayle (50), Yuvraj (14), Karun Nair (23 not out) and Akshar Patel (13) were the other notable scorers.

When you lose it, things go awfully wrong.

A big question mark exists over Yuvraj Singh and his form for KXIP.

The best dismissal came when three KXIP players combined to create a moment of magic in the first innings. The Jamaican was slow to begin with; he was two from nine balls, before exploding and adding 48 off the next 31 balls. Punjab somewhat squandered a great 54-run start by openers, before picking pace towards the end as Stoinis deposited Hardik Pandya for two sixes and as many fours to milk 22 runs off the final over. Still, they would be desperate to put up a good show. Fresh from his 18-ball half century against Delhi Daredevils, Buttler will look to replicate that showing, albeit in a winning cause this time. He was dismissed in the following over when he miscued a knuckle ball from Stoinis and the skier was pouched by KL Rahul. He's a batsman who likes to take his time to get set and can score centuries - he's got four of them in T20s, all when batting in the top three.

Rohit Sharma (c), Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mustafizur Rahman, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Ishan Kishan, 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. His 84 comprised of seven boundaries and three sixes as his side romped home with eight balls to spare.

Ashwin exploited this weakness by using Mujeeb's entire quota, apart from his own, and was rewarded with four wickets for 65 runs, a return that swung the game their way. While Rohit's knock was about elegance, Krunal plundered the KXIP bowlers. It clocked around 145 kph and was bowled short by the bowler as Rahul stayed back and played an upper cut over the third man to send it deep into the stands. With four overs remaining in the innings, Rahul had managed only 48 off 43 on a sticky wicket that ensured runs came at a premium.

Ravichandran Ashwin was KXIP's best bowler. Samson, strong on the back-foot, was forced to play the pull after a short one by Andrew Tye. Ashwin opened the bowling and ended the night with economical figures of 0-23. After the end of 20th over KXIP restricted Rajasthan on 152/9.
