Bumrah leads Mumbai to win over Punjab

Bumrah leads Mumbai to win over Punjab

KXIP have been more reliant on their openers and KL Rahul and Chris Gayle remain the batsmen to look out for tonight at the Wankhede Stadium. Kings XI's Ravichandran Ashwin, on the other hand, was devastated, saying he was at a loss of words to explain the defeat.

Tye raised his IPL-leading wickets tally to 24, becoming the first bowler in the competition's history to snare three four-wicket hauls in one season.

Just four games back, Rohit Sharma led MI's fate looked uncleared.

"Pollard has always been a match-winner for us", Rohit Sharma said.

But just when things seemed good in the middle, Finch was dismissed by pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the 17th over.

"We already knew he (Rahul) had been batting well throughout the tournament".

R Ashwin: We are bowling first. "But hats off to them". But again, in Bumrah's over, he managed just a single off the second ball. "Bumrah has come a long way in the past two years". It's not easy to come out and bowl the way he does.

On being asked about the void left by Malinga, the skipper was of opinion that the sling arm action bowler is definitely missed in the squad but Bumrah has done well to take charge. Mumbai put up a total of 186 for the loss of 8 wickets. But Mumbai turned out to be a slightly different side that day in Indore, and Kings XI have not been the same side ever since. The caption rightly read, "The BeauT of the #VIVOIPL @rahulkl& @hardikpandya93 share a light moment post-match #Spiritofcricket #MIvKXIP". Leaving him out was a tough decision. So I was looking for that one opportunity to bring him back in the squad because he's been a crucial member of this squad for a number of years now.

Mitchell McClenaghan kept his nerve to concede only 13 and ensure Mumbai Indians' last game on Sunday in Delhi will not be a mere formality. He revealed that he wanted to build more pressure rather than getting desperate for a wicket, "When we got two wickets, I wanted to build pressure". We were in the chase all along. "It's hard. We were preparing like that since the first game but we are not able to close off games, so now after halfway stage of the tournament, we are able to close games so we are focusing on that".

For over the last few weeks, Kings XI have slid from table toppers to playoff contenders to a team that is now the butt of jokes and memes, and whose playoff hopes hang on a slender thread.

"I've been in a dugout that has been on the edge always (CSK), but today we had a awful day, and it's quite sad the way things panned out". Today was one of those days where he had to cap off a victory and do it for ourselves, now we need to depend on some luck.

"[It] doesn't really matter if I take 4 for 16 or someone else takes 4 for 16".

"We haven't had enough boys standing up other than KL with the bat or myself and Mujeeb (ur Rahman) with the ball".
