Mumbai Indians in danger of being knocked out

Leonard Rios | 07 May, 2018, 06:22

Mumbai Indians have six frontline bowlers, yet for the second game in a row, Rohit Sharma used part-time offspinner JP Duminy. Gayle and Rahul were exceptional in Punjab's previous match against MI and it was after Rahul's departure that the Punjab team never quite got going. For Rohit's side, with the exception of Suryakumar Yadav, who has 283 runs to his repertoire in eight matches as an opener, the sum total of what others have been conflicting.

Also for MI, contributions from skipper Rohit Sharma; Krunal and Hardik Pandya are utmost crucial.

Punjab bowlers, Mujeeb Ur Rahman picked up two wickets whereas Stoinis and Andrew Tye got one wicket each.

KXIP have been a force to reckon in IPL 2018 with their red-hot opening pair Chris Gayle and KL Rahul who seemed to have etched themselves as one of the most prolific pairs in the cash-rich league.

When you lose it, things go awfully wrong. That means that whenever Yuvraj has faced 30-plus balls in an innings, since IPL 2015, he strikes at 140.61.

Gayle and Rahul have scored the vast majority of their runs. The Jamaican was slow to begin with; he was two from nine balls, before exploding and adding 48 off the next 31 balls.

Falcons reportedly make Matt Ryan highest-paid player in National Football League history
That lasted all of a few weeks before the Minnesota Vikings signed Kirk Cousins to the richest contract in league history. It was the fifth straight season he threw for 4,000 yards, making him the only quarterback in franchise history to do so.

Gayle, though, was unperturbed as he hit six fours and two sixes.

Axar Patel's (13) pinch-hitting didn't work, and it was left to Marcus Stoinis (29 not out off 15 balls) and Mayank Agarwal (11) to produce a good finish.

KKR have aced four of their five chases so far this season, their 80% success rate the best of any team this season. "We gave away some five or 10 runs", he said.

KL Rahul celebrates after scoring a half-century. He has a stellar record against fellow Trinidadian Evin Lewis across six innings: he has dismissed him four times in 32 balls, while only conceding 37 runs.

Ajinkya Rahane (RR captain), "Very disappointed as I felt that 170-175 would have been good on this pitch". However, Rahul's adaptability and his resolve towards finishing the game proved crucial for KXIP's climb to the third spot on the points table. Rahul too had a close call with that Samson catch in the penultimate ball of that over, while Royals itself took solace over the fact that only seven runs came off it. Against Bangalore however, Hardik showed what he is capable of in the field running out Brendon McCullum in the 15 over and then returning to the bowling crease in the 17 over taking three important wickets. It clocked around 145 kph and was bowled short by the bowler as Rahul stayed back and played an upper cut over the third man to send it deep into the stands. He ended the night with figures of 3/27 and an economy of 6.75.
