In this game, Mumbai Indians will try to dominate Kings XI Punjab and book their birth for the Playoffs, While the stats are same for the Inconsistent Kings XI Punjab. Krunal Pandya was also looking good in his 32-run knock which came off 23 balls and was laced with 1 four and 2 sixes, but he also failed to last till the end.

Rahul's breathtaking 94 off 60 balls proved of little worth as Jasprit Bumrah's astonishing bowling spell where he picked three wickets for just fifteen runs in his quota of four overs got Mumbai home in this make-or-break game for the hosts.

If KXIP lose, it will be very tough for them to qualify for the playoffs.

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

WICKET! It's a hat-trick chance for Andrew Tye as he sees off the in-form Suryakumar Yadav for 27.

Stoinis, however, bounced back in his next over to pack back Krunal with a deceptive slower bouncer, ending in a simple top edge to the hands of Rajpoot at short fine before being hit for two boundaries and a six by Pollard as the West Indian completed his 22-ball fifty.

Soon, Ankit Rajpoot joined the party to dismiss Rohit Sharma on 6. KXIP, who largely used Andrew Tye in the second half of the innings, in a surprising move, got him to bowl two of the powerplay overs.

Kings XI Punjab won the toss and elected to field.

Punjab's major issue has been their over dependency on their opening batsmen, KL Rahul and Chris Gayle where the latter has also failed in the last four matches. One change they would like to do is sending JP Duminy up the order as he is playing at number 8, which is a complete waste.

Humiliated by 10 wickets in their previous outing by Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab brought back the experienced Yuvraj Singh and Manoj Tiwary in place of the misfiring duo of Mayank Agarwal and Karun Nair. Then there is the loss of wickets. In the match, they had to defend 186 against the Kings who rallied exclusively on the knock played by KL Rahul.

After a brilliant batting display, Mumbai bowlers managed to restrict Punjab to 183/5 to bag two crucial points. In comparison, Chris Gayle's 368 runs is nearly 300 runs behind Rahul's tally, with right-hander accumulating 652 runs from 13 attempts and snatching the Orange Cap from Delhi's Risabh Pant.
