Pollard's fifty helps Mumbai Indians to reach 186/8

MI vs KXIP IPL match today Mumbai Indians teetering on the edge of elimination

Mumbai Indians defeated Kings XI Punjab by 3 runs to make it clear that they are in the hunt to qualify for the playoffs. It was the fourth over of the innings and Suryakumar Yadav had just whacked Tye's fellow pacer Ankit Rajpoot for two sixes and as many fours in the previous over. That has been the story of high profile Mumbai Indians this IPL season.

Punjab needed 17 runs in the last over and McCleneghan bowled the last over, which was a thriller and Mumbai clinched the victory from Punjab by three runs.

McClenaghan removed Yuvraj Singh with the third ball and then held firm, finishing with 2-37 off his four overs. The result set up a mad scramble over the last few days of the regular season. Mitchell McClenaghan had 16 to defend off the final over, and that was too much of a cushion against a nowheadless, panicked Kings XI line-up. 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. It was not the first instance when Kl Rahul played brilliantly but could not help his team win the match. Aware of Kings XI's depleted resources in the middle order, Aaron Finch and Rahul didn't go all-out in the middle overs, taking only calculated risks or capitalising on errant deliveries to keep Kings XI alive. Interestingly, though, Kings XI have a 4-3 record against MI at their own den - the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Explaining his thought process of bowling the penultimate over, Bumrah said, "In three hours, I believe a player doesn't become bad", he opined. "As good as our bowling attack is, we have not been putting up complete performance as a team with both bat and ball and that sums up why we have not won games lately", he said. KL Rahul, this season, has shown a new side to his game (Orange cap: 652 runs in 13 matches) and proved that him being labeled as only a Test specialist was not entirely fair Punjab T20 team must support KL Rahul and a few out of form players (read: Karun Nair, Yuvraj Singh, Manoj Tiwary) have to step up to the plate as KL Rahul can not bail out Punjab every time.

Kieron Pollard (50 runs) top-scored as Mumbai Indians posted a total of 186-8 in the 50 IPL match against Kings XI Punjab here on Wednesday.

Ocado entering USA market through technology deal with Kroger
The Kroger (NYSE:KR) announced an exclusive partnership agreement with online supermarket Ocado in the United States. The retailer's efforts to create a "seamless digital experience" for customers would speed up as a result, he added.

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.

Considering that, Rohit Sharma may not mind facing a side that is propped on the shoulders of two batsmen. Aaron Finch got out on 46 off 35 balls. The Sri Lankan pace bowler was part of the Mumbai Indians for 10 editions, a mentor in the 11th, and he is also the leading wicket-taker of IPL history.

However, the big blow for KXIP came when KL Rahul was dismissed for 94.

"Pretty blank at this point of time". We had the firepower to chase it down but we could not do it.

"On this wicket when the slower ball was bowled on a good length, it wasn't gripping, so I looked to bowl a dipper and it worked".
