IPL 2018 MI vs KXIP: Pollard powers Mumbai to 186/8

IPL 2018 MI vs KXIP: Pollard powers Mumbai to 186/8

Rahul is known to be an avid follower of football and in a sweet gesture post hard-fought contest between the two teams, these two Indian cricketers exchanged their jerseys in order to popularise this culture and bring it in IPL as an act of sportsmanship.

In the game played at Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday, the home side defeated Kings XI Punjab by three runs in another last-over thriller. "It's very hard to say what Rahul has done right or wrong - he's hardly mistimed a ball this season". "We've got a reasonable bowling attack and a lot of experienced worldwide players didn't show up with the bat", remarked skipper R Ashwin after the drubbing by RCB. In the bowlers' meeting we usually talk about every player.

Jasprit Bumrah ended with match-winning figures of 4-0-15-3 while Mitchell McClenaghan. Once Finch was out, Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel should have gone big from ball one, but they consumed four balls for only two runs before Rahul took strike in the third ball of the 18th over.

"I was not focusing on who was scared and who was not scared. I didn't pick up a lot from his bowling, I was just focusing on my plans, what I could do according to my bowling on this wicket, so that was it". If I'm clear, most of the times it's easier to execute. On some days, it doesn't work.

Punjab suffered their worst defeat of the season in their last outing when Royal Challengers Bangalore hammered them by 10 wickets, a game where both the batsmen and bowlers succumbed before Kohli's men. Finch was also dismissed with another catch in the deep. "It looks a fairy tale". "It's hard. We were preparing like that since the first game but we are not able to close off games, so now after halfway stage of the tournament, we are able to close games so we are focusing on that".

"Clarity is very important when you're bowling at the death", he said at the presentation. Tye now has 24 wickets in 13 matches and comfortably leads the list of highest wicket-takers.

These disappointing numbers put the Mumbai Indian captain in the fifth position on the IPL Impact Index even in his own dressing room. Are these wickets coming better late than never for MI? We had the firepower to chase it down but we could not do it. It means obviously someone else has let you down and it's not a whole team effort. As we were talking, I said "give me your jersey".

"We haven't had enough boys standing up other than KL with the bat or myself and Mujeeb (ur Rahman) with the ball". So yeah, fair credit to Mumbai.

But the spell from Bumrah turned the game on its head as he sent back Finch and Stoinis in the 17th over. Apart from Chris Gayle and KL Rahul, none of the other batsmen have shown the application to score runs. Of course, he got away with a few edges, but he looked compact during his 23-ball 50. We always knew it was going to be tough for our bowlers to come out and defend that score.
