IPL: Punjab opt to field vs Mumbai

Rahul brought up the 100-run stand with a couple of sixes off Mayank Markende but Bumrah brought his side back in the game with the wickets of Finch (46 off 35) and Marcus Stoinis in the same over. They are now in danger of missing out on playoff berth if they fail to win the final two games. As a result, both the teams will face a must-win situation as the teams enter the final round of league fixtures. And when Bumrah returned in the 19th to dismiss Rahul, it was game over. But his assault was cut short by Bumrah who had him mistime a shot over the in-field straight to Hardik in the deep. Jasprit Bumrah has also managed to keep him quiet (26 runs in 27 balls). Are these wickets coming better late than never for MI? He fell to Bumrah in the penultimate over for 94.

Rahul stuck his sixth half-century of the tournament, but his effort went in vain.

Gayle (18) was dished out with a lot of short stuff and he perished trying to take one on from Mitchell McClenaghan.

Ravichandran Ashwin came into the attack and immediately sent back Pollard (50) with a carrom ball. After a five-minute delay due to a floodlight failure and a six-run 11th over, Krunal chipped a six over fine leg. Ashwin gets his second victim.

In the end, Pollard's selection ahead of JP Duminy proved a worthy move for MI. He gets to the milestone in just 22 balls as Mi go past 150.

Mumbai's middle order was yet again exposed in the last game when their batsmen, including skipper Rohit Sharma, failed miserably.

WICKET! MI lose another wicket in the form of Ishan Kishan as he is dismissed for 20.

It's match number 50 of Indian Premier League, Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians to lock horns with Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

MI have had a mixed season so far this year.

Rohit averages 6.6 and strikes at 88 in the seven matches Mumbai have lost this season.

In the end, it was Kohli and Parthiv Patel who took RCB home in just 8.1 overs.

Mumbai risked Mayank Markande with the 16th over.

What time will Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR), IPL 2018 match, start?

Andrew Tye would return though to peg back the hosts ending with figures of 4 for 16 bagging the wickets of the top three as well as Hardik Pandya (9). The showing of the two players will be crucial for the teams set for the battle at the Wankhede Stadium later today (Wednesday).

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.
