Another day, another loss for MI and they will need something really special from here on if they can even think about a 2015-esque comeback. The Kings, meanwhile, jump to the third position with this win and all of a sudden, things are starting to look up for them. Right then, that brings an end to our coverage of this IPL encounter! Join us back tomorrow as the action moves to the DY Patil Stadium where the Rajasthan Royals take on the Gujarat Titans. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the latest news and live coverage of games from all across the globe. Until next time then, this is me, Maanas Upadhyay, in the company of Shashwat Kumar, bidding you adieu! Stay safe! 
Mayank Agarwal (winning captain & Man of the Match): It was a good night. Very, very happy to contribute to the team's win. Crucial thing was 2 points for us. I can't really say that it was the runs on the board. This game had a lot of ups and downs. More often then not, we were nailing the cubical moments. When the game was 50-50, we won the moments and the game came towards us so we cannot say it was just the batting. (On aggressive batting) At the start of the tournament, that is the brand of cricket we want to play. We want to show good intent and we were a lot smarter with the bat today as well. We kept wickets. We were cautious this time and we did not want to give wickets to their crucial bowlers. Credit to Brevis, the way he took on Rahul but then great comeback from Rahul as well. Obviously when Tilak and Brevis were playing we had to change our plans. Rabada is one of the bowlers but we have two other guys we mix and match to try and get a wicket for us. (On three win) Yes it's nice, very happy to have three wins. We are playing good cricket and even if we do 5-10% better every game, we can go on to do special things. 
Rohit Sharma: There is hardly anything to find out from the game. We played pretty well and came pretty close in the end. A couple of crucial run outs weren't needed but that happens. At one stage, we were cruising but in the end, we could not hold our nerves. Credit to PBKS for how they bowled at the back end. If we are not winning games, you got to try ways to succeed as a batting group. We are trying different ideas but does not seem to be working at the moment. I don't want to take anything away from the guys. PBKS held their nerve and they won the game. (On going back to Mumbai after three games in Pune) Does not make too much of a difference. At the end of the day, you have to play good cricket. We have not been playing good cricket for a while and that is why we have been on the losing side. The Kings batted pretty well and they got off to a flier. I thought 190+ was chaseable on that pitch because it was really good to bat on. We got to go back and come back collectively as a group.
Mumbai Indians 186/9 (20) lose to Punjab Kings by 12 runs

Dewald Brevis 49(25) | Suryakumar Yadav 43(30) | Tilak Varma 36(20)
Odean Smith 4-30(3) | Kagiso Rabada 2-29(4)

Oh dear! Mumbai Indians have messed up a straightforward chase once again. More disappointment for the Mumbai Indians and they have crashed to their fifth consecutive loss in the tournament. Jubilation for Mayank Agarwal and the Kings as they secure their third win of the tournament. One can just wonder what if Suryakumar had been around till the very end. 

Odean Smith bowled a brilliant final over and after his horror outing against Tewatia, this was what he would have needed to boost his confidence yet again. The match began well for the Mumbai Indians as Rohit Sharma got off the blocks pretty well. Kishan had another poor outing in this contest and it seemed as though we were in for another batting collapse. 

However, U-19 star Dewald Brevis joined hands with Tilak Varma as the duo stitched together a crucial partnership and put MI into the driver's seat. With the run-rate having gone below 10 RPO, it seemed like quite a simple task for MI. However, the wicket of Brevis combined with a couple of absolutely suicidal run-outs meant that MI had only SKY left at the crease. 

In the end, it proved to be too much for even Surya to do as he perished after Unadkat denied the single on the delivery prior to that. Right then, Mumbai will be hoping to go back to the drawing board and make some much needed changes. They are yet to find the perfect combination and this one, which involves six batters and five bowlers, can be added to the pile of failed experiments for them. A few positives from this game but apart from that, MI really need to address the issues in their bowling as well as batting.

19.6 Odean Smith to Tymal Mills, OUT! FOUR FOR ODEAN SMITH! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that stands up again. Mills has a swish at it but like his peers, gets it on the higher part of the bat. The ball spoons up towards extra cover, where Mayank accepts the offering gleefully! Mayank is over the moon and he should be! MI have lost five on the bounce!
Tymal Mills c Mayank Agarwal b Odean Smith 0 (2b 0x4 0x6)
19.5 Odean Smith to Tymal Mills, DOT BALL! Back of a length delivery on middle and off stump. Mills has a swipe across the line and misses. PBKS are nearly there now!
Tymal Mills, RHB, makes his way to the middle. 
19.4 Odean Smith to Jasprit Bumrah, OUT! TWO IN THE OVER FOR ODEAN! Back of a length delivery slanted across the batter outside off stump. Bumrah has no option but to swing and much like Unadkat, is late on the stroke. The ball skews off the splice and lands nicely in Dhawan's palms at backward point!
Jasprit Bumrah c Shikhar Dhawan b Odean Smith 0(1)
19.4 Odean Smith to Jasprit Bumrah, back of a length delivery angled across the batter way outside off stump. Bumrah misses but the umpire doesn't! Called a wide!
Jasprit Bumrah, RHB, is the new man in. Can he do the job for MI?
19.3 Odean Smith to Jaydev Unadkat, OUT! WILL THAT BE THAT? Back of a length delivery outside off stump that zips through. Unadkat continues swinging like a rusty gate and gets a huge top edge that swirls towards extra cover, where the fielder does the rest and sends Unadkat back! MI clinging on now! Does Bumrah have something special in his locker?!

16 runs in 5 deliveries required now! The skipper has a chat with Odean. 
19.1 Odean Smith to Jaydev Unadkat, SIX! OH MY WORD! Short delivery on middle and off stump. Unadkat rocks onto the back foot and bashes it over deep square leg for six!
Odean Smith [2-0-32-1] is back into the attack

22 runs required off the last over. 
Almost a quarter of the crowd is vacating the stadium. However, MI must keep hope. Can Unadkat do a Tewatia here?

18.6 Kagiso Rabada to M Ashwin, another delivery outside off stump that is away from Ashwin's hitting arc. He has a go anyway and guess what, he does not make any sort of contact
18.5 Kagiso Rabada to M Ashwin, back of a length delivery outside off stump. Ashwin reaches out for it and clogs it down the ground towards the bowler, who collects on his follow through
