MI vs PBKS, Match Review:
Punjab Kings secured their third win of the season as they held their nerves to beat Mumbai Indians by 12 runs in the 23rd match of the Indian Premier League on Thursday.
Mumbai, meanwhile, faced a fifth-successive loss as they remain the only winless side in the season. Batting first, PBKS slammed 198/5, riding on brilliant knocks from Shikhar Dhawan (70) and Mayank Agarwal (52), and Jitesh Sharma (30*).
In the run-chase, Dewald Brevis’ (49) blitzkrieg, alongside Tilak Varma (35) and Suryakumar Yadav (43) brought MI close to the total but the two run-outs of Tilak and Pollard eventually proved key to the side’s downfall.
Fifth-successive loss for the Mumbai Indians. Tymal Mills falls on a duck on the final ball of the innings as Odean Smith picks his third wicket of the over, and a fourth of the night.
It is going from bad to worse for MI, and the two run-outs today quite sum up their season so far.
Man of the Match:
Mumbai Indians inched closer to elimination after setting themselves up for their first win, only to slump to their fifth defeat on the trot as Punjab Kings won a high-scoring IPL thriller by 12 runs in Pune on Wednesday.
A target of 199 looked imminently changeable when teenagers Dewald Brevis (49 off 25 balls) and NT Tilak Varma (36 off 20 balls) were at the crease but Punjab bowlers did well enough to restrict MI to 186 for nine at the end of 20 overs.
Odean Smith (4/30 in 4 overs) redeemed himself after the horror last two balls against Gujarat Titans as he got two wickets in the final over for Punjab. For Mumbai, eight wins in nine games with this kind of bowling attack looks near impossible.
