Pollard, Bumrah lead Mumbai to nerve wracking win

Rohit Sharma will be looking for Mumbai Indians win today

But with Rahul hammering the bowlers all over the park, the match was hanging in balance until Bumrah accounted for him in his next over to tip the balance in MI's favor.

KL Rahul alone has scored a total of 652 runs in 13 matches and almost scored a century last night with his knock including 10 fours and 3 sixes. In the 19th over, he took out the risky Rahul with a slower delivery and conceded just six runs to finish with 4-0-15-3. Batting at No. 6, Pollard unleashed a 23-ball 50, studded with five fours, three sixes, some emotional punches and celebrations.

Defending a competitive total of 186, the hosts restricted the visitors to 183/5 and kept their play-offs hopes alive and even jumped to the fourth spot in the points table.

Additionally, the bench only tallied 19 points with 11 points coming from sharpshooter Kyle Korver in the second quarter. For Cleveland, it was a demoralising scoreline, after what was another astonishing moment in year 15 of James' career.

The Karnataka batsman shared a 111-run second wicket partnership with Aaron Finch (46) to take Punjab to the brink of a successful run chase but Bumrah scalped three wickets in his second spell to derail the chase. And against Rajasthan Royals, they conceded another 43 runs in the last three overs.

Andrew Tye finished with four wickets to his account and was the most impressive bowler for Punjab.

Chrissy Teigen hints at baby No. 2, tweeting: 'Somebody's herrrrrrre'
Model Chrissy Teigen , 32, and singer John Legend , 39, have announced the arrival of their baby boy, who comes ahead of schedule. Venting her frustration on Twitter, she shared: "Happy pregnant Chrissy is gone. meet OVER IT Chrissy".

But just when things seemed good in the middle, Finch was dismissed by pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the 17th over. 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. The match turned out a nail-biter as every team had their share of opportunities to overpower each other. "And try and get away with a few balls above his belly button and try and get it back into him".

Bumrah, for once in IPL 2018, delivered the ideal death overs performance that had made him one of the best in the business and MI knew, irrespective of who KXIP send in next, the pendulum had swung back in their favour.

Revealing the reason of swapping jersey with Pandya, Rahul, who hit a blistering 94 off 60 balls against Mumbai Indians, said: "We've seen this happening a lot in football".
