IPL - Mumbai Indians v Kings XI Punjab

IPL - Mumbai Indians v Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) overcame a mid-innings wobble as KL Rahul's hundred powered the visitors to 197/4 against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 24th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.

Pollard single handedly brought his side back in the game with his 31-ball knock punishing the Punjab bowlers with 10 sixes and three fours.

Sharma did not play against Kings XI Punjab yesterday but stand-in captain Kieron Pollard took his team to an incredible victory. With his 31-ball 83, Kieron Pollard singlehandedly won the match for Mumbai Indians, and ESPNcricinfo's Smart Stats bear this out.

Mumbai's bowling is looking exceptionally good with Jason Behrendorff, Rahul Chahar, Alzarri Joseph and Jasprit Bumrah in the mix along with Pandya brothers.

Pollard, standing in for Rohit Sharma, who missed out on the game due to leg spasm injury, promoted himself in the order. Kings XI have now lost three in seven.

Also, while he did turn it on in the last three overs, scoring 36 from 12 balls, there was a phase in the middle overs when he failed to sustain the momentum provided by an opening stand of 116 in 12.5 overs.

However, just when it looked that Gayle will inflict further damage, Behrendorff dismissed the left-hander for 63 in the 13th over after he failed to clear Krunal Pandya at the deep mid-wicket.

The left-handed Gayle's departure slowed down the run-rate with Hardik sending back David Miller and Karun Nair cheaply and Bumrah accounting for Sam Curran between the 15th and 18th overs.

In case, Rohit has injured his hamstring, it is a cause of concern for the Indian team as these kind of injuries take time to completely heal.
