New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) not just ensured their stay in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 season with victory over Mumbai Indians on Thursday, but they did so in some style by amassing 230 runs against the table-toppers.

The match was full of entertainment, as the crowd got to witness over 450 runs being scored and boundaries raining all across the stadium. Other than the fours and sixes, the Wankhede stadium also saw KXIP's Ishant Sharma taking tumbles on the pitch, on numerous occasions.

Seeing the lanky pacer's tumbles, Australian legend Matthew Hayden unleashed an epic description of Ishant's act, calling him "a newly born giraffe".

The incident both Ishant and KXIP skipper Glenn Maxwell, who came to help him stand again after witnessing those numerous falls. Even coach Virendra Sehwag couldn't resist his laughter, having see seen the pacer's falls.

Punjab had brought in Ishant Sharma for Swapnil Singh for the match, hoping the Rs. 2 crore buy will finally bring end to his wicket-less spell but that wasn't just meant to happen.

Fifth placed Kings XI Punjab next face Rising Pune Supergiant, in a match that could seal their progression to the play offs.
