Mohit has last laugh as Kings XI beat Mumbai by 7 runs

In the match between Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab at Wankhede stadium, MI batsman Kieron Pollard deliberately plays culprit to retain strike by running one run short. Smashing his two other sixes off leggie Karn Sharma in a cameo which reminded one of the way he batted when he was at his best during the 2014 IPL, Maxwell added 63 in 33 balls with Saha before he was castled while trying to make room and cut Bumrah.

New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill came up with a stunning catch for Punjab in the 10th over dismissing Mumbai's Lendl Simmons.

Kieron Pollard had already brought Mumbai Indians to the threshold of a historic win against Kings XI Punjab while chasing 230 at the Wankhede. Punjab scored 230 runs for the loss of 3 wickets and Mumbai gave them a strong fight as they too piled n 223 runs for 6 wickets.

Wriddhiman Saha, who was adjudged the Man-of-the-Match for his 55-ball 93, hailed Mohit's effort.

The teams' aggregate runs scored - a total of 453 - was the second highest in IPL history.

Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has once again lit up the IPL, leading his Kings XI Punjab side to a win over Mumbai.

Chasing an improbable 230/3 after Kings XI Punjab posted this season's highest score, Kieron Pollard 50 not out (24b, 1x4, 5x6) and Hardik Pandya played a blinder to nearly chase it down only to fall short in the end. Axar Patel (19 from 13 balls) lent the innings some impetus at the back end when he struck a last-ball six. In addition, they had also overhauled Kings XI's 198 in Mohali inside 16 overs a few games ago. Pandya perished after sharing a 55-run stand (21 balls) with Pollard for the fifth wicket. The visitors' innings was built around four significant partnerships; it was the first time this season that a team's innings had 3 partnerships of 50 or more.

On the bowling front, medium pacer Sandeep Sharma, Mohit Sharma and leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia were brilliant in the last match and they will like to continue their form.

The next three overs went for 60, with four fours and six sixes; 10 boundaries in 18 balls.

Simmons (59) might have thought he had hit Maxwell for six just a few balls later but Guptill leapt into the air to claim a spectacular grab.

"In the last three games, whatever we were doing batting/fielding, the target was the attitude should be of nothing to lose, execute in batting, bowling and fielding, play the natural game, then we will see what happens, we have defeated KKR and MI (and) we will try to play against Pune as we played in these two games", Saha told reporters at the post match conference last night.
