Well, hope you enjoyed this fascinating encounter. It is time for us, here at Sportskeeda to wave goodbye and goodnight to you all. Do join us back tomorrow for the penultimate match, between RPS and KXIP with the winner of that encounter, all set to become the fourth and final entrant to the playoff stages.

We stuck to the plans we discussed and turned out and executed it. Yes, it is a good feeling to start the playoff in Mumbai so just the final part of the tournament left."

Time for some presentations.
Not to forget the impressive spell of bowling from Mitchell Johnson and also, some credit goes to the other wicket taking bowlers as well. Because it was the wickets that hampered KKR's supremacy in the match. So the losers of today's match, KKR, have actually managed to qualify for the playoffs.
The Knight Riders started off extremely smoothly in the powerplay but their middle order lost the plot in the quest of attacking the visitor's bowling. Credit to de Grandhomme, he was probably the only batsmen who played cautiously and yet scored swiftly. Manish Pandey would have liked to finish off the match but it wasn't to be. It was the all-rounder Pandya who turned things around completely for the Indians.
That's it. Mumbai Indians beat KKR by 9 runs and remain at the top of the table. They have stayed there almost throughout the IPL. Something similar to what Chelsea did in the EPL this season. So? Can the Mumbai Indians do a Chelsea in the IPL as well? They are 2 games away, or 3 games if they lose in the Qualifier 1.

19.5 Hardik Pandya to Trent Boult. Slower length ball, outside off stump backing away Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Rayudu.
Although he is bowling to the tail of the KKR batting, he has done a commendable job in this match prior to the last over.

18.3 OUT! Caught. Tim Southee to Kuldeep Yadav. Yorker, outside off stump backing away Steer, missed to wicketkeeper, by Rayudu. Looked very dubious. The bat hit the ground as well but the umpire thinks it did manage to nick the ball. Well, UltraEdge says otherwise. There was no edge whatsoever.
18.2 FOUR! Tim Southee to Kuldeep Yadav. Full toss, off stump moves in front flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Johnson. That is very mediocre from Mitch at the deep. He has gifted 2 runs by misfielding the ball.
Four runs and a wicket. Well, it's been only top-class stuff from Hardik Pandya while bowling today. Came into bowl in the 13th over and he has made all the difference.
