  • 19:40 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
  • 19:38 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Kings XI Punjab win by 8 wickets with 8 balls to spare. Highest scorer of the match is KL Rahul (71*), who was very slow to get off the blocks in the beginning of the innings
  • 19:36 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Bumrah bowls the 19th. Played down to the third man fence. 2 more needed.
  • 19:35 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Miller finds the fence. McClenaghan fails to find his smile this time. KXIP 171/2 after 18 overs. Need only 6 more runs
  • 19:33 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Excellent ball. Had Miller in all sorts of trouble with that yorker that swerved in wickedly. McClenaghan says something to Miller and laughs. Miller nods. Does not look to be in any mood to laugh. The job is still to be finished.
  • 19:31 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    McClenaghan bowling the 18th over. Starts off with two dot balls
  • 19:28 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Rahul has taken control of the situation. This must be out of MI's grasp now, even for Malinga and Bumrah
  • 19:27 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Bumrah hit for consecutive boundaries by Rahul
  • 19:23 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Match going out of Mumbai's grasp. Bumrah might have something to say about that though. He has conceded just 6 off his 2 overs. He has 2 overs remaining
  • 19:22 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Rahul gets some bat onto that Malinga bouncer and ball races away for four. KXIP 151/2 after 15.5 overs
  • 19:21 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Extremely sensible batting from Rahul and Miller. Taking the singles and sometimes turning the singles into doubles. KXIP need 30 off 26
  • 19:18 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Malinga bowling the 16th over.
  • 19:16 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
  • 19:14 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Expensive over from Hardik Pandya. 19 runs came off the 15th over. KXIP now need only 37 in 5 overs. Some of the greatest T20 bowlers of all time to bowl the 5 overs though
  • 19:12 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Rahul pressing his foot on the pedal now. Much needed. KXIP need to capitalize on this Hardik Pandya over. 42 off 32 required now
  • 19:09 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Finally! A six from KL Rahul. Hits first ball of that over from Hardik above point. Rahul moves on to 38
  • 19:08 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    The home team need 56 runs in the last 6 overs. Malinga and Bumrah have 2 overs left. McClenaghan has one left too. MI need to get just one over from either Hardik or Mayank Markande
  • 19:06 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Miller comes in and gets off the mark straightaway. No time to waste here
  • 19:04 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Smooth from Krunal Pandya! That was hit hard. No worries for Krunal in pouching that though. KXIP 117/2 after 13.3 overs 
  • 19:03 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Krunal Pandya hit for another maximum. Much needed, given that KL Rahul has only hit 1 boundary in his entire stay
  • 19:01 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Only 6 runs conceded by Hardik Pandya off that over
  • 19:01 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    To be fair to that incident, Mayank Agarwal looked to have gotten back into his crease. The reactions to this incident are sure to be streaming in soon though, given events of recent days
  • 18:59 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
  • 18:57 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Krunal Pandya goes for 12 runs in his 3rd over
  • 18:56 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Mayank hits Krunal Pandya for a maximum down the ground. At 81 metres, that is probably the smallest six of this innings so far
  • 18:53 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Relatively quiet over from McClenaghan. Rahul and Mayank keeping the score ticking 
  • 18:51 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
  • 18:50 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Krunal Pandya had an opportunity to mankad Mayank Agarwal there. But just warned the batsman. 
  • 18:48 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    The chase seems to be on track. KL Rahul's scoring rate might be a little concerning though. Has scored 19 runs off 26 balls so far
  • 18:46 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    A little lucky for the batsman there. Outside edge flies to the fence. Krunal Pandya unlucky then
  • 18:44 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Last ball of the over hit in the same area as the first four. KXIP 73/1 after 9 overs
  • 18:42 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Mayank Agarwal hits Mayank Markande for four. KXIP's No.3 is off to a fluent start
  • 18:42 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
  • 18:40 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Mayank Agarwal the new man in. Hits a four in his second ball
  • 18:37 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Hardik Pandya, the fielder, cannot contain his jubilation. Mumbai will be happy to see the back of Gayle. The big man gone for 40 (23). KXIP 53/1 after 7.2 overs
  • 18:36 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
  • 18:33 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    When Gayle-storm hits, it comes in twos it seems. Second time in this match Gayle has hit consecutive sixes. That's boosted the scoring rate. KXIP 51/0 after 6.5 overs
  • 18:32 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Hardik Pandya the hapless victim this time. Fielders can do little but stare at that disappearing
  • 18:28 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
  • 18:26 (IST)Mar 30, 2019
    Bumrah has bowled two brilliant overs to check the scoring rate. Has conceded only 6 runs in his 2 overs
