Mumbai might think that they have an edge ahead of today's match as they had beaten KXIP in their last encounter at Indore, but in the present scenario with the playoffs in sight, it all boils down to a battle of nerves. 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.

The India seamer returned 3-15 from four brilliant overs and crucially dismissed global team-mate Rahul in the penultimate over of the chase, after the Kings XI batsman compiled a superb 94. However, the introduction of purple cap-holder Andrew Tye wreaked havoc for Mumbai Indians he picked three wickets in two overs, conceding just five runs in the Powerplay.

IPL 2018, Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium, latest update and cricket scores: KL Rahul is ensuring KXIP are well in it. On the other side, Aaron Finch was elevated to No.3 for the Kings XI and made 46 at a time where Rahul needed a partner.

The Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - will also need to dish out something special if they are to stand any chance of making it to the final four. Understandably given the ground's reputation as a nightmare to defend totals, MI have found themselves batting first on all five occasions they have lost the toss.

R Ashwin returned to scalp the wickets of Pollard, who had just brought up his fifty off just 22 balls, and Ben Cutting (4) to keep his side in the hunt. Suryakumar Yadav, the in-form opener, took it on himself to get the innings going.

WICKET! Evin Lewis is clean bowled by Andrew Tye for nine runs as visitors find a breakthrough.

Soon, Ankit Rajpoot joined the party to dismiss Rohit Sharma on 6.

If Mumbai is let down by their best prospect, rivals Kings XI Punjab have been given the best value for money by their top investment KL Rahul, the ₹11 crore acquisition for the season. 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.

Most recently, on Monday evening, Punjab received a proper pounding at the hands of Kohali-led Royal Challengers Bangalore in which first, they were all out for 88 runs in 15.1 overs, and then they allowed RCB to attempt to a 10-wicket win. In the match, they had to defend 186 against the Kings who rallied exclusively on the knock played by KL Rahul.

After losing Chris Gayle (18) early on, Rahul and Aaron Finch (46) added 111 for the second wicket to put the visitors on course but Jasprit Bumrah broke the risky stand with the Australian's wicket in the 17th over.
