IPL 2018 Highlights KXIP vs MI: Mumbai Indians kept their hopes of making it to the playoffs alive with a stunning win over Kings XI Punjab in Indore on Friday. Suryakumar Yadav scored a brilliant half-century early in the chase and then Krunal Pandya blasted 31* off just 12 balls to lead Mumbai to a six-wicket win. After the win, they move to fifth in the points table with six points in eight games. Mumbai Indians were chasing a target of 175. Kings XI Punjab posted 174 for 6 after they were asked to bat first by Rohit Sharma. Chris Gayle scored a half-century and some lusty blows from Marcus Stoinis lifted them to that score. On a small Indore ground, Kings XI would have liked a few more runs but this was also a competitive total. (IPL 2018 Scorecard KXIP vs MI)

Kings XI Punjab have been in tremendous form in this year's IPL with skipper Ravichandran Ashwin and Afghanistan sensation Mujeeb Zadran working in tandem to provide a solid depth to their bowling line-up. When it comes to bat, the Gayle storm has returned to the T20 tournament and has taken all the teams away with it. Chris Gayle has already smacked a century in this year's IPL and the opening pair with KL Rahul, who has looked in tremendous touch, has given Punjab a solid batting line-up. Unfortunately, the inconsistent middle-order comprising of Mayank Agarwal, Aaron Finch and Manoj Tiwary failed to take his side to a win against Sunrisers Hyderabad when chasing a low total of 133. Now, returning after a week to take on Mumbai Indians, the side will be eager to return to winning ways and continue their climb up the IPL table. With the Rohit-Sharma side struggling in the tournament, KXIP will fancy their chances of attaining a win.
