  • Chris Gayle is key to Kings XI Punjab success

With victory, Mumbai move into the fourth and final playoff spot with one game to play - but before Mumbai face the Delhi Daredevils in their final game on Sunday, the Royal Challengers Bangalore can move above them on net run-rate with a handy win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday.

In the 11th season of IPL 2018 KXIP have six wins from 12 matches, while Mumbai have five wins from the same number of matches.

The match is scheduled to start at 8 P.M. IST on Wednesday, May 16th. He swivelled and pulled the first of those hit-me deliveries to the fine-leg fence before twice showing that he wasn't too averse to pushing the boundaries of orthodoxy despite his clean-cut reputation as a batsman, and played two reverse scoops over the short third-man for four.

Australian quick Andrew Tye (4-16) then raised his wickets tally to 24 to be the leading wicket-taker this season as Mumbai struggled to 4-71 in the ninth over. This edition has seen five four-wicket hauls taken, Tye has three of them - making it even more remarkable that the paceman rode the bench for 34 straight matches before getting an IPL debut.

The defending champions set the visiting team a stiff target of 187 and then restricted Punjab to 183/5 to register their sixth win in 13th games and boost their tally to 12 with one game in hand. These two teams lost their previous match. However, if they knock Punjab out, they can go through. Krunal also wielded his willow to good effect and scored 32 useful runs. Not only did Bumrah bowl a miserly spell but most importantly, he got the prize scalp of Rahul in the penultimate over to leave Yuvraj Singh and Axar Patel a stiff task of scoring 17 runs in the last over. Both teams have a lot riding on the clash when it comes to their playoff hopes. "This experience of playing all the games for a franchise like MI is going to help him going forward in his career", Tare told reporters.

High court gambling ruling could aid sanctuary cities' fight
The president's comments reportedly came in response to a California official's remarks on MS-13 gang members. Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing.

Rahul and Aaron Finch's (45 off 35 balls) century stand had frustrated Mumbai until the 17th over before Bumrah returned and ended the 111-run partnership.

TeamsMumbai Indians: Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Rohit Sharma (capt), Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Ben Cutting, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah. Will Kings XI Punjab be able to chase down the total?

A boost up the order wasn't as successful for Marcus Stoinis who fell to a rampant Bumrah short ball.

On the batting side, Mumbai Indians has Suryakumae Yadav, Rohit Sharma while Kings XI Punjab has the powerful hitter Chris Gayle and KL Rahul in the squad.
