    OUT!!!!! Bumrah gets the big fish. He has been caught by ben Cutting near the boundary. What an innings but by the young man, he almost got KXIP to victory. Can MI turn it around from here?

    Ben Cutting has made a mess of his over conceding 15 off his over at a vital stage. Bumrah has a lot of work to do from here on. He not only needs to bowl a tight over but also manage to pick a wicket. KL Rahul enters into the 90′s.

    OUT!! The ball was literally sailing in the night sky. At one point I suppose it went out of the light parameter as well. Hardik kept his eyes on the ball and made the catch look very simple. Finch departs for 46 bringing Stoinis in.

    It may seem like KXIP are cruising towards victory but the difference is still 30 runs. One wicket can change the whole match here. Off the 36 balls left 12 belong to Bumrah who would be hard to pick. At this point MI can’t even take chance with Ben Cutting or Pollard because a good over can change the game for KXIP as well.

    Another match and another half-century for KL Rahul. He has been unstoppable this season and taken his team on various occasions. MI on the other side are in search for a wicket here.

  • 10:56 PM IST

    KL Rahul is just going with the flow here. He has played some amazing cut shots off the spinners and is rotating the strike as well. He is in for a long innings here. MI need a wicket or two here to get back in the game.

  • 10:45 PM IST

    MI have managed to pick the big wicket of Gayle but the real threat for them is KL Rahul with the form he is in. He has been joined by Aaron Finch from the other end.
