No surprises, it was the knuckle ball again. Only Suryakumar Yadav has been among the runs on a consistent basis and MI would be pleased with the return to form of West Indian opener Evin Lewis. Tye's figured read 3/5 in his first two overs.
The scenario:Mumbai's victory saved them from a certain elimination, thrusting them as high as fourth on the table thanks to a tournament-high net run rate. Tye led the list for much of 2017 too, until a shoulder injury cut his campaign short for the now-defunct Gujarat Lions. He might as well make "Knuckleball" his middle name. Rahul went hard after Cutting in the next over, but Bumrah was back for the 19th. "It has never been easy for us in the last few years", Rohit said. The pair not only stabilized Mumbai's innings but also took the attack to Punjab's bowlers.
"I was backing my plan and I had the belief that if I'll be able to bowl a good over". They need a win against CSK in the last match, RCB to lose to SRH but win against RR, and MI to lose to DD, to qualify for the play-offs.
However, just when they were looking good, Krunal threw his wicket away. Bumrah bowled the second over of the chase, conceding just a run.
When Ashwin finally came on in the 16th over, he got rid of Pollard immediately. Was he saving himself for the death overs?
Aaron Finch (46) and Rahul then forged a crucial 111-run partnership. He could have bowled the 20th over but made a decision to hand the ball to Mohit Sharma, who had gone for 25 runs in two wicketless overs prior to this. We were very abstract about our performance last match and spoke about our best batsmen taking it deep. It has garnered 12 points in 12 matches - winning and losing six each. "I felt it would be nice to collect some jerseys and bring that tradition in cricket", Rahul told IPL's official website Wednesday.
However, the big blow for KXIP came when KL Rahul was dismissed for 94. Punjab can only just cross their fingers, win their next match and hope the other results go in their favor as their luck is not just only in their hands.
Coming back, the right-left duo of Pollard and Krunal sent the visiting bowlers to the leather hunt as they resurrected the innings with a quick-fire 65-run stand.
It has been a story similar to Mumbai's for KXIP whose openers - Rahul and Gayle - were giving them good starts until last night when both succumbed to Yadav's short balls. Kings XI were comfortably placed at 145/1 in 16 overs. The below chart is a telling picture.
Kings XI Punjab: Lokesh Rahul (WK), Chris Gayle, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh, Manoj Tiwary, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin (Captain), Andrew Tye, Mohit Sharma, Ankit Rajpoot.
