Sticking to the plans helped Bumrah

MI vs KXIP IPL match today

He finished with figures of 3-15 from his allotted overs, and rightfully earned player of the match, subsequently thrusting Mumbai into the top four for the first time in the tournament. "I was just focusing on that and it was a good day, so it went well", Bumrah said at the post-match press conference. It was Tye who had ruined MI's start, moving a full one in to rattle Evin Lewis' stumps in the fourth over, and then removing Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar. Bumrah, in an interview with the MI TV recently shared his memories of playing at the Wankhede stadium for the first time.

The right-handed Pollard struck five fours and three sixes in an up-tempo 23-ball innings, while Pandya's knock was more measured, requiring the same number of deliveries and including a four and a pair of sixes. The duo notched the runs at a healthy rate which helped the home team to a formidable score of 186 on the board.

In fact, Ashwin and Tye combined to concede only 23 runs from the 16th to 19th overs and made sure Mumbai didn't run away with the game. Although Mitchell McClenaghan got the better of the Jamaican to leave the team on 34 for one, Rahul and Aaron Finch took the match to the hosts. We haven't had enough boys standing up other than KL (Rahul) with the bat or myself and Mujeeb (ur Rahman) with the ball.

While the youngster was tested by Andrew Tye, he deposited Mohit Sharma over square-leg and point for a couple of sixes in an effort to keep the momentum going. Punjab who once led the table, have now slipped to the 6 spot and they have to depend on other teams after winning their last fixture against SunRisers Hyderabad.

But just when things seemed good in the middle, Finch was dismissed by pacer Jasprit Bumrah in the 17th over. Marcus Stoinis fell to Bumrah as well in the same over. The KXIP opener knew the onus was on him, but trudged back crestfallen after being deceived by a slower ball from his India teammate. The IPL match MI vs KXIP live streaming will also be available on JioTV and Hotstar. Mumbai Indians have an advantage (11-10) when these sides have met in IPL.

"It looks a fairy tale". But everything is learning and I am learning from these games.

On MI's spectacular comeback into the reckoning after a poor beginning in the first half of the tournament, Bumrah said they were closing out games which they had failed to do earlier in the season.
