Kings XI would hope that their spinner Mujeeb ur Rehman who had missed the game against KKR owing to injuring in his hand is fit to play today. In this game, Mumbai Indians will try to dominate Kings XI Punjab and book their birth for the Playoffs, While the stats are same for the Inconsistent Kings XI Punjab. Enter Jasprit Bumrah, who had earlier delivered two wicket-less overs for just five runs, as Rohit Sharma desperately searched for answers. The two Rajasthan Royals players have bid a fond farewell to the franchise and its fans upon their departure for London.

The Kiwi bowler has taken 14 wickets in 11 games so far this season for the Mumbai Indians.

Not only did Bumrah bowl a miserly spell, but more importantly, got the prize scalp of Rahul in the penultimate over to leave Yuvraj Singh and Axar Patel a stiff task of scoring 17 runs off the final over. MI got off to a flying start, reaching 57/1 after five overs but they lost three wickets in quick succession, including two off successive balls, against the bowling of Tye before Pollard (50 off 23 balls) and Krunal Pandya (32 off 23 balls) resurrected the stuttering innings.

Mumbai Indians moved up to fourth in the table with this win, and now have 12 points from 13 matches, along with a healthy net run-rate of +0.384.

Defending champions Mumbai held on to score a three-run win over Kings XI Punjab in Mumbai on Thursday (NZT).

However, Tye and R. Ashwin brought Kings back into the game.

Primary election to set tone for November
The group said it received some reports of voters receiving incorrect ballots and having their registration unexpectedly changed. Voter turnout in Idaho has hovered around 25 percent among registered voters in recent primary election cycles.

What Mumbai Indians needs to do: On May 20, it plays Delhi Daredevils, a team which is out of the race for the playoffs.

However, the hosts will be putting their hopes on Suryakamar Yadav - one of their few consistent run-scorers - and opener Evin Lewis.

Keeping with Mumbai's modus operandi, Krunal Pandya and Pollard too showed no inclination to take their innings deep.

Both batsmen fell in successive overs as Krunal was deceived by Marcus Stoinis slower delivery and pulled it to short fine leg.

And, Bumrah hit the final nail into KXIP's coffin by removing the exhausted Rahul, who was six short of the century. Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match easily by 10 wickets. The match was in a crucial stage with 60 needed off 30 balls, when leggie Mayank Markande conceded 18 runs, with Rahul striking back to back sixes to give Punjab the momentum.

McClenaghan then successfully defended 17 from the final over to see Mumbai victorious in a final-over thriller, the kind of which they were consistently losing during their poor start to the tournament.
