Pollard was the man to be feared and it seems Karn is no less. And it is a boundary again of a blinder off the outside edge. And then a sudden silence! Low, slow, cutter, length. Travels down under to rip apart the stumps and off goes Karn Sharma.

Over 17 | Score 192/5 | Karn 5 (2) ; Pollard 36 (14)
Sandeep Sharma now into the attack. 56 off 24 needed. Wide ball to start off with. The bowlers are already facing the pressure. So first delivery, over-pitched, well off as it gets the bottom edge of the bat and the ball floats real lowly and Saha takes it magnificiently.
HH Pandya c Saha b Sandeep Sharma 30 (13b)
Karn Sharma makes his way to the pitch. Third ball, boundary down the wicket and then a six downtown. He is keeping Mumbai's hope alive in the massive run chase. 13 runs already off the five deliveries bowled. Last ball, low full toss as Karn smacks it down mid-on for a boundary. Well, Maxwell fumbles in the deep to let go off the ball.

Last over of power-play as Mohit Sharma sprints in for his first over. Second delivery, fuller outside off stump as Simmons sends it sailing over long-on for a six.

Over 5 | Score 52/0 - Lendl Simmons 29(18b); Parthiv Patel 20(12b)
Ishant Sharma continued with his second over. A huge shout to begin with, against Parthiv Patel. Then, Lendl Simmons hit the next ball for a four. A single followed, then another four. Same sequence followed, for a single and a four.
BTW, while delivering the fifth ball, lanky Ishant had a nasty tumble, and, that's not the first time we have seen him going through that rigours.
15 runs from it.
Over 4 | Score 37/0 - Lendl Simmons 20(15b); Parthiv Patel 15(9b)

Lendl Simmons whipped, again, for another four. Eight runs from the over.
Over 3 | Score 29/0 - Lendl Simmons 14(11b); Parthiv Patel 14(7b)
Bowling change, a Sharma on for another. Ishant Sharma, playing his first IPL match this month, started rather well. Only six runs, with a four to account for.
Two dot balls to Lendl Simmons, then a double. A dot followed, then Simmons played a delicate ramp shot over, and the ball bounce into the third man boundary for a four. A dot ball to end the over.
Mumbai still need another 202 runs from 17 overs.
Over 2 | Score 23/0 - Lendl Simmons 8(5b); Parthiv Patel 14(7b)
Matt Henry shared the new ball with Sandeep Sharma, and 13 runs from the over, which included three back-to-back fours.

Over 1 | Score 10/0 - Lendl Simmons 7(4b); Parthiv Patel 2(2b)
Whatever happens, it's similar start to the innings for Mumbai Indians. Sandeep Sharma to Lendl Simmons, and the big West Indians whipped past square leg fielder for a four.
A wide followed, then a dot ball. Simmons took a couple off the third ball. A single to rotate the strike, and Parthiv Patel took a double to end the 10-run over.
MI need a massive 231 runs to win off 120 deliveries

Last ball, full toss, well off as Axar ramps it down town for a six.
Rohit Sharma calls for a little team talk, right before they depart. Probably asking them to enjoy the game from here on and not bother much about winning or losing

12 deliveries more to go as McClenaghan paces up for the penultimate over. Two singles off thw first two deliveries bowled.

Fifth delivery, length, bit of seasm, just outside off as Maxwell edges it down slip region for a boundary. And then a massive WICKET.

Over 7 | Score 85/1 | Saha 40 (23) ; Maxwell 6 (3)

Length, well off as Saha taps it down backward point for a boundary.

Glenn Maxwell's men have stepped up their performance in the last few matches ever since the going got tough for them. For Kings XI Punjab (12 points from 12 games), a slip against Mumbai Indians will mean that KKR (16 points from 13 games), Rising Pune Supergiant (16 from 12 games) and defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (15 points from 13 games) will be through even before playing their respective last league matches.
In their previous match, KXIP put a good show against KKR, where they beat the two-time IPL winners by 14 runs.
Now that Hashim Amla has left for national commitments, Glenn Maxwell, Kiwi Martin Guptill and Shaun Marsh will have to score big and help the team to post a gigantic total if they opt to bat first.
Their batsmen will be looking to convert starts and lay a foundation for a big total if batting first. The visitors will also have to get their combinations right in terms of both bowling and batting.
For Mumbai, their batting has fired throughout the season and when skipper Rohit Sharma, Nitish Rana, Parthiv Patel, West Indian Kiron Pollard and Lendl Simmons fire in unison, it can send jitters to any bowling line up in the world.
Rohit, who has been included in the Indian team for Champions Trophy, had stuck a 67 run knock in 45 balls in their last game and he would like to continue his form on a batting friendly Wankhede track.
Moreover, Parthiv and Simmons will be eager to give the team a solid start, be it while chasing or batting first.
