Bumrah revives hope for Mumbai with twin strikes

The Mumbai Indians versus Kings XI Punjab contest in the Indian Premier League (IPL2018) proved to be an edge-of-the-seat thriller with two prizefighters, KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah, making it a contest to remember with inspired displays. Before going down to Royals, Mumbai Indians won three in a row to turn its campaign around.

While Krunal took Aussie Marcus Stoinis to the cleaners twice before striking a boundary off consecutive deliveries, Pollard deposited left-arm spinner Axar Patel for a massive six before belting Rajpoot for two fours and a six.

Okay, they came up short against Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab when he smeared 67 and 51 respectively, but they are now on a three-game winning streak thanks to the England man's 82 in the reverse fixture against Kings XI and back-to-back scores in the nineties against Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. The role of leggie Mayank Markande (14 wickets) will also be crucial along with that of Krunal Pandya, KXIP too have slumped in the latter half of the T20 League and need to improve in all departments.

WICKET! Evin Lewis is clean bowled by Andrew Tye for nine runs as visitors find a breakthrough.

Talk about turnarounds, Kings XI have only managed one victory in their last six games. He finished with figures of 3-15 from his allotted overs, and rightfully earned player of the match, subsequently thrusting Mumbai into the top four for the first time in the tournament.

Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Kings XI Punjab by 10 wickets without even breaking a sweat, courtesy a stellar bowling performance led by pacer Umesh Yadav.

They are coming off a loss against Rajasthan, but a win in this game will take them closer to the playoffs.

WICKET! Yuvraj Singh takes a good catch at mid-on to dismiss captain Rohit Sharma for six, as Ankit Rajpoot gets his first wicket.

Two changes for us, Yuvraj Singh and Manoj Tiwary are back, they replace Mayank Agarwal and Karun Nair.

It has been a story similar to Mumbai's for KXIP whose openers - Rahul and Gayle - were giving them good starts until last night when both succumbed to Yadav's short balls. Their woes at home were best summed up when two light towers blanked out for a good long 10 minutes as Kieron Pollard, who replaced JP Duminy, tried to resurrect the innings with Krunal Pandya. Then there is the loss of wickets. Miller has a total of 50 runs in two matches with an unbeaten knock to his name, meaning he averages 50 in IPL 2018.
