MI vs KXIP Live Match: The match is being played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai © BCCI
Mumbai Indians will be desperate for a win against Kings XI Punjab to keep their play-off hopes alive when they square-off in a crucial Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Wankhede stadium. Just when Mumbai's dream of making it to the final four was on the verge of getting shattered, the Rohit Sharma-led brigade came up with a spirited show to register a hat-trick of wins before faltering against Rajasthan Royals in their previous game. Mumbai have to win both their remaining two matches to keep their chances alive for advancing to the play-offs. With 10 points, the three-time champions are placed at the sixth spot in the IPL points table while their opponents are a spot ahead with 12 points in their kitty. (Live Scorecard)

Mumbai will once again rely on opener Suryakumar Yadav, who has been consistent with the bat, amassing 473 runs from 12 innings. The other opener Evin Lewis also got back his touch in the last match, hitting a 42-ball 60. However, Mumbai's middle order failed miserably including skipper Rohit. Barring his match-winning knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rohit has failed to live up to the expectations this season. The Pandya brothers – Hardik and Krunal — will also need to dish out something special if they are to stand any chance of making it to the final four.

Mumbai have ended up with a good score on the board. I term it as a good score purely because of the state their innings was in at the half way stage. Mumbai started really well, Suryakumar Yadav looked in great rhytm as the hosts smashed 37 off the first three overs and were all set to dominate the game. Punjab though had the other plans, Tye struck thrice and a wicket from Rajpoot ensured the contest was tilting in their favor at the half way mark. The visiting team pulled things back quite sharply courtesy clever variations from the Aussie who by far the best bowler of the evening.
Mohit Sharma to Mayank Markande
So not much damage from the resulting no ball in the end, but still, the hosts have managed to get three extra runs. Could be all the difference when it comes down to it. Markande works this off his pads on the leg side and takes a single. MUMBAI FINISH ON 186/8!
Mohit Sharma to Mitchell McClenaghan
Another leg bye. Quite full on off, McClenaghan moves across to flick it away but wears it on the pads. It rolls away and the batsmen change ends.
Just a leg bye results. Slower length ball on middle and off, Markande moves across to scoop it but it goes off his thigh pad behind to the keeper. The batsmen take a leg bye.
Not out! It's a no ball! Surprising. Full toss from Mohit Sharma, McClenaghan moves across, kneels down on his knees and swings across the line. Gets a top edge which flies into the hands of Ashwin at short fine leg. The umpire, for some reason, thinks it's a no ball and takes it upstairs. The TV umpire too thinks the same and signals a no ball. Not sure how when Mitch was practically on the floor. Anyway, Free Hit coming up…
McClenaghan is given out caught at short fine leg. Height seems to be the issue for the umpire. Let's check it upstairs.
Good slower one. Keeps a little low too which does the trick. Well outside off, McClenaghan swings and misses.
Wide! Comes from around the wicket and darts it well outside off, across the tramline and that's a wide.
Back-of-the-hand slower one from Mohit, on a good length on middle and off. Markande taps it down gently on the off side and crosses over.
FOUR! Short and wide outside off, Markande reaches out to it and lofts it well over backward point. Nobody out there in the deep, so the ball will race away. Good start to the over for Mumbai.
