IPL 2018: Mumbai Indians win a thriller with Bumrah's heroics

IPL 2018: MI Vs KXIP, Highlights: Bumrah guides MI to sensational 3-run; Rahul's 94 goes in vain

R Ashwin led Punjab started the tournament on a very good note, but lost five of their last six games.

In the bowling department, Australian pacer Andrew Tye (20 wickets) and Afghan teenaged spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman (14 wickets) have been brilliant. Yadav in the meantime scored 27 runs before going down. Eventually, Mumbai scored just 35 runs in the last five overs, but with 186, they were above par anyway. Rahul has blasted six half-centuries - including three scores above 80 - to play a lone hand at the top of the order for Brad Hodge's side.

Ben Cutting added 4 runs off 7 balls while Mitchell McClenaghan (11 9off 7, 1 four, 1 six) and Mayank Markande (7 off 5, 1 four) remained unbeaten. Three balls later, Marcus Stoinis was only shaping up to hook but the brute of a bouncer had already taken the glove through to the keeper. Both Mumbai and Punjab have played 12-12 matches, with five wins and seven losses Mumbai has 1o points, and they are now 6th at the points table, while their opponent, has won six games out of 12. Jasprit Bumrah won the "Man of the Match" for his magnificent display of death bowling. His spell of 3/15 against Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday tilted the balance of the match in Mumbai's favour allowing the blue brigade to eventually win the do-or-die match.

"You always want to bowl a good over but some days, it doesn't go your way because at the position where I bowl, it is hard, especially at this ground with the dew around", added Bumrah, who rediscovered his form after finishing with 1-19 against Punjab at Indore on May 4.

The decision to send Axar Patel ahead of Yuvraj Singh and Manoj Tiwari too backfired. Even before MI, or Wankhede, could come to terms with what was happening, Tye picked up his 23rd scalp of the season by inducing an edge for the keeper off Suryakumar Yadav's bat, to leave the home team stuttering at 59 for 3.

Skipper Ravi Ashwin also bowled well as he recorded the match figures of 3-0-18-2.

Jasprit Bumrah dismissed Aaron Finch and then KL Rahul and the wickets set the cat among the pigeons in the Punjab camp.

With two new batsmen in the middle - Rohit Sharma and Krunal Pandya - and both struggling for form, a third over for Tye was a no-brainer there. Now Pollard had a season disappointing enough to be left out for four successive games.
