A stunning run chase Mumbai Indians ended eight runs short of their target of 231 runs despite a 24-ball 50 from Kieron Pollard. Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma defended 23 runs off the final two overs for Kings XI Punjab, who remain in the play-off hunt after the seven-run win. Mumbai got a brisk start with Simmons and Parthiv. The former scored 59 runs but fell soon after Parthiv. All other batsmen played little cameos around Pollard but they were not enough. Earlier, put into bat, Kings XI posted a mammoth 230/3 – the highest team total this season. Wriddhiman Saha, promoted up the order, smashed an unbeaten 93 and had good support from Maxwell (47) and Guptill (36). Mumbai Indians bowlers were all over the place but Jasprit Bumrah impressed with figures of 1/24 from his overs.
