So, another IPL game has been done away with, but there's more to come. The Mumbai Indians host the Sunrisers Hyderabad in a crucial game, as far as the race to the playoffs is concerned. Do join us for that game tomorrow.

"We badly wanted this win. Can't ask for more; they gave what they had. The wicket was good and 170 was par. We got ten runs extra. Amazing death bowling despite the dew. I told them to back your skills and do what you're capable of doing, and give 100 percent in that. Last four over, Mohit and Sandy were top-class," says Murali Vijay, the KXIP captain.
...
MARCUS STOINIS has been adjudged as the MAN OF THE MATCH for his 52 runs and 3 wickets.
...
...
"180 was around par and we had the platform but lost a few wickets at the wrong time. Credit to them. The ball was reversing and they stuck to their plans. Good death bowling, have to say. This is a big ground and a few errors were bound to happen. The wicket was playing very well and we had the perfect start. 50 runs off first 6 was perfect. The required rate was around 9 but we couldn't just cross the line," says Zaheer Khan, the captain of the Daredevils.
...
Excellent death bowling by Stoinis, Sandeep, and Mohit brought Punjab back into the game, and eventually made them cross the line. DD would be very disappointed with this performance, as after the bloopers in the field, their batsmen let them down, as despite a good opening stand between De Kock and Samson, the middle order couldn't capitalize. KXIP get a consolation WIN at Mohali. Delhi's slide continues.
...
19.6 Sandeep to Pant, FOUR. KXIP WIN! Short and outside off, Pant gets a consolation boundary. He punches it to the vacant extra cover region, but the four has no effect on the result.
...
19.5 Sandeep to Morris, 1 run, he's back to bowling full, Morris flicks it to deep square leg for one.
...
Probably the best death over of this IPL, the 19th by Mohit Sharma. The last toe-crusher was an absolutely peach. Just 3 runs came off it.
...
19.4 Sandeep to Morris, SIX! Shorter outside off, Morris hammers it to the midwicket fence. Finally, Morris has connected one, but it has come a bit too late in the innings. Morris too is disappointed as he shakes his head.
...
19.3 Sandeep to Morris, 2 runs, low full toss, Morris flicks to deep square leg.
...
19.2 Sandeep to Morris, 2 runs, full again, Morris digs it past the bowler and changes ends.
...
19.1 Sandeep to Morris, no run, yorker on leg, you can't do much with that one.
...
18.6 Mohit to Pant, no run, toe-crushing yorker! Hits him right on the boot, Pant loses balance and falls.
...
18.5 Mohit to Pant, no run, slower short ball, hits him in the body, as he was too early into his shot
...
Excellent death bowling here from the Sharmas for KXIP!
...
18.4 Mohit to Morris, 1 run, yorker outside off, Morris digs it towards point for a single.
...
18.3 Mohit to Morris, no run, in-swinging yorker again, Morris inside edges it to his pads and the ball dies in front of him.
...
18.2 Mohit to Morris, no run, slower ball outside off, Morris goes for a big heave but makes no contact.
...
18.1 Mohit to Morris, 2 runs, in-swinging yorker, Morris drives it to deep extra cover for a brace.
...
Mohit Sharma to bowl the 19th over. 28 runs needed off 2 overs.
...
Rishabh Pant is the new batsman.
...
11 runs and the huge wicket of Brathwaite in that over. Good one by Sandeep.
...
17.6 Sandeep to Morris, 1 run, whips a full ball uppishly to mid wicket to retain strike.
...
17.5 Sandeep to Brathwaite, OUT! Sandeep digs this one short, Brathwaite tries to muscle it again but can't get hold of it enough. Gurkeerat, placed at mid-wicket, takes an easy catch. Excellent change of length by Sharma. Short ball, Brathwaite pulls, but the ground is too long, even for the big West Indian. The game is not over!
