Seamer Jasprit Bumrah snapped up three crucial wickets as defending champions Mumbai Indians kept their playoff hopes alive by notching up a thrilling three-run win over Kings XI Punjab in a crucial Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Wankhede on Wednesday night. Chasing 187 to win, Rahul blasted 10 fours and three sixes in his 60-ball 94-run innings and shared a 111-run second wicket partnership with Aaron Finch (46) to take Punjab to the brink of a successful run-chase but Bumrah scalped three wickets in his second spell to derail the chase. Mumbai Indians thus registered their sixth win to joined Kings XI and Rajasthan Royals at 12 points in the table. (Scorecard)

Jasprit Bumrah receives the Man of the Match award. His spell in the death, where he took 3 wickets in two overs, including the likes of Aaron Finch and KL Rahul, was the turning point in the outcome of the game.

The Mumbai bowlers did decently overall, but they were never really on top, well, till Jasprit Bumrah decided to bump things up a notch. Showed why he's considered the best death bowler in the world when he got rid of Finch and Stoinis in the 17th over itself. That swung the momentum in his side's over. And if that wasn't enough, he dismissed Rahul in his next over. That effectively won his team the game and McClenaghan cleaned up after him. Mumbai kept it close, but they live to fight another day. Earlier in the evening, Mumbai powered to a good score courtesy a fifty from Kieron Pollard and a sensible supporting role from Krunal Pandya. It was enough to get the two points.

A sigh of relief from Rohit Sharma after that final ball should tell you just how much this victory means to him and his side. It wasn't an easy one by any means. With 187 to gun down, Rahul and Gayle provided a brisk start before the latter departed. Though, post that, Rahul and Finch took up the mantle and scored a century stand to be in control of the chase. Wickets just fell towards the end at the wrong time and it all fell apart. KL Rahul is an unfortunate man though. Once again, he stayed there almost till the end and fell 6 short of what would have been a well-deserved ton. Surely would have liked to finish things off.

Mitchell McClenaghan to Manoj Tiwary

FOUR! Tiwary scores a boundary off the final ball but it doesn't matter. He swivels across and pulls it across the deep backward square leg fence. MUMBAI WIN BY 3 RUNS!

Mitchell McClenaghan to Axar Patel

Safe! A legal delivery now and Mumbai win. Good bowling. McClenaghan bangs it short outside off, Axar fails to connect and both batsmen set off as the keeper throws it at the stumps at his end. Misses, the bowler takes it and does the smart thing by not throwing it. Takes the bails off by jogging to the stumps, replays show Axar is safe but more importantly, no extra run conceded.

!

A run out appeal against Axar Patel is referred upstairs.

Mitchell McClenaghan to Axar Patel

SIX! Axar Patel with a beauty! Still a twist left in this entertaining tale? Full toss and he smokes this over wide long on to clear the rope.

!

Manoj Tiwary to bat next.

Mitchell McClenaghan to Yuvraj Singh

OUT! Yuvraj holes out! McClenaghan gets the breakthrough! Angles across a full ball outside off, Yuvraj lofts it over covers but doesn't get the desired connection. Off the outer half and it's straight into the safe hands of Evin Lewis in the deep. 15 needed off 3 balls.
