IPL 2019: Today IPL Match Live Updates KXIP vs MI 9th Match – Punjab won by 8 wickets.
Today IPL match live updates KXIP vs MI:
- Punjab won by 8 wickets
MUMBAI 176/7 (20.0)
PUNJAB 177/2 (18.4)
- It’s not this win but the brilliant manner in which Punjab have pulled this chase off by 8 wickets that they need massive plaudits for. Ravishing performance by them and their top order to win this ever so comfortably.
- 18.4: Miller pulls, it’s a single and Mumbai Indians have been cleaned out in Punjab by the home side. Second win of the tournament for Punjab and this is such a well crafted and directed effort to make light work of a 177 run target.
- 18: 6 runs needed in 2 overs and it’s safe to say this encounter is over. Mumbai have no one at all but themselves to blame with the way Rohit has lead them today. No inspiration in his captaincy and you can’t ask Bumrah to win you matches every time from nothing.
- PUNJAB 154/2 (16.2): Bumrah recalled and though he will definitely throw the kitchen sink and more with rattling deliveries, he’s been left way too late. Rohit failing to understand that you need to adapt according to the game.
- 50 for Rahul. Agonising, uncompelling and no fortitude in that ball from Malinga and that’s seen Rahul hit his 50 with a four.
- Updates till Over 15 – PUNJAB 140/2
- 140-2 after 15 overs. Comfortably in Punjab’s grasps this match with Mumbai being so ineffective. Time out done with and Bumrah and Malinga need to do something humongous to keep Punjab away from a win.
- Rohit leaving his frontline bowlers out for way too long here. He’s not understanding that specialist bowlers can pick up wickets at a slew and with 19 runs in the 15th over Pandya has once again been shown the way to the door.
- Second Wicket: Out! The ball grew up on Mayank who was taken up surprise. He didn’t envision that delivery and he’s ended up holing the ball straight back to Pandya. 43 off 21 balls is an innings though that has taken his side well within reach.
- 103-1 after 12 overs and with it the 50 run stand has also come in. It’s taken absolutely no time, erasing all worries this Punjab stadium had after seeing the back of Gayle. Good work by Mayank to not allow Mumbai to find a footing in this match.
- Updates till Over 10 – PUNJAB 84/1
- With Rahul finding it so tough to score runs, something which is perplexing on this wicket, Mayank has been asked to come on and take on the bowlers immediately. 73-1 in 8 overs.
- First Wicket: OUT! Krunal brought on by Rohit and the trick works against Gayle. Given air, looping into him and he’s fallen for the trap. Enticed to go for another big hit but this one fails to go all the way with the longer square boundary seeing him get caught out for 40.
- PUNJAB 52/0 (7.0) Flat sixes by Gayle and Pandya’s fiasco of a bowling is just what he was waiting for. Absolutely criminal to bowl this line and length on a wicket that is as dead as they come. 50 up for Punjab as well.
- Power Play – Till 6 overs – PUNJAB 38/0
- We’ve come to an end to the powerplay and with it the timeout makes an introduction as well. Mumbai opting to take it here and they’ll be pleased with the efforts of their specialist pacers to keep the score at only 38-0.
- Chris Gayle’s journey to 300 IPL sixes
100: 37 inngs (943 balls) in 2012
200: 69 inngs (1811 balls) in 2015
300: 114 inngs (2719 balls) in 2019
- PUNJAB 36/0 (5.0): Gayle enjoying the dwindling pace that Malinga offers. Gives the batsmen so much time to adjust themselves in the crease and Punjab’s opener has taken off 9 off the fifth over. Last over of the field restrictions to come up.
- PUNJAB 31/0 (4.4) – 300 sixes for Gayle in the exhibition tournament and he’s slowly starting to get a move on here. Rahul is in agonising and underwhelming form, leaving Gayle to pick up the pace.
- 2: 8 after the first two overs, Malinga and Mitchell doing well to tighten the screws from the beginning itself. Not giving much more on a wicket that otherwise is seeing the ball come onto the ball, allowing you to cream it anywhere you would like to.
- Second Inning Start: Rahul and Gayle are at the crease. Rahul is on strike. McClenaghan will open the attack.
- Updates till Over 20- Target – 177
- Seventh Wicket: 176-7 is what Mumbai have managed to put on the board in this innings. A late flurry took them towards to a respectable total but it’s one that the Punjab batting heavy unit will know they have the capability of pulling down especially if Gayle gets going.
- Sixth Wicket: Out Caught by Murugan Ashwin!! That’s a good wicket at this stage of the innings – Krunal was opening up, but Viljoen has his man. 167-6
- MUMBAI 162/5 (18.2) – Last 2 overs left to play in this innings and Mumbai way off where they would have liked to be at. This is an extremely tepid situation for them with their vigil of taking runs floundering at the moment.
- Fifth Wicket: Out Caught by Agarwal!! That’s a high catch and Mayank has judged it to perfection at long-off.
- 137-4 at the end of 16 innings and way too many wickets just when partnerships were starting to flourish has kept Mumbai out of the reach of what looked to be 200 at one stage especially with the way their opening pair was going about things.
- Updates till Over 15 – MUMBAI 131/4
- Fourth Wicket: Out! Yuvraj goes for 18 runs and it’s been an innings that had no will or resolve. Come about way too slowly in 22 balls and he’s hardly troubled the scorers. Holes out to Shami off Ashwin’s ball
- Third Wicket – DRS taken by Quintin. Given out for a LBW off Shami’s last bowl of his third over and Quintin tried one too many things. Edge the only issue of contention and replays showing it’s out. End of his 39 ball 60 run innings
- MUMBAI 110/2 (12.0) – 50 for Quintin. Allowing the rest of the batsmen to take time and build an innings around, it’s a knock that Mumbai needed. Has ensured that they keep going about at a steady run rate with wickets in the bag to up the ante in the final stages.
- 11: Wayward and waning bowling from Tye. Each delivery was well off the mark and he’s hardly looking the bowler who picked up the purple cap in the previous edition of the IPL. Third match and he’s failed to get in his stride.
- Updates till Over 10: 91/2
- 10 overs completed and Mumbai have put on an extremely healthy 91-2 at the halfway mark of their innings. Quintin ensuring that the two wickets on a bounce didn’t hamper the tourists chances of continuing about in their fine fashion.
- End of the first strategic timeout and it’s Shami whose being called back to make the most of this break in concentration. His first over went for 13 and he’ll be looking to return raocously and imbed a better spell here.
- 79/2 (8.3) Played really late by Quintin off Ashwin and he gets a four for his jab. Brings up his 1000 runs in the riveting league with that shot and he’s batting well at this stage. Needs to carry on in this fashion with a couple of quick wickets.
- Second Wicket: Out! Suryakumar LBW to Ashwin with the ball skidding onto him. As easy as that could get for the umpire and this decision doesn’t need to be reconsidered. Very ordinary shot from the batsman to failed to get under the ball completely.
- Power Play – Till 6 overs – 62/1
- 62-1 for one at the end of the powerplay. Mumbai will be delighted with the way they’ve began their bid to put on a huge total but that mistake by both Rohit and Quintin to ignore the DRS will leave a bad taste in the mouth. Could have been spotless till now had they gone for it.
- First Wicket: Out! Rohit loses his wicket for 32 runs after fully unaware of how that ball was behaving. Frisked to come back onto him and he’s caught right infront of the wickets. LBW to Viljoen and he’s departed for 32 off 18 balls.
- 5: Rohit steps out to Tye, making it a fuller length delivery to hit it for a four. Followed up by a neat little shuffle of the feat to steer the ball ever so finely for the third four and Mumbai have brought their 50 up with that.
- 3: 28-0 Just enough elevation on Quintin’s shot to see it stay out of the reach of a leaping Vilojen. That could have almost been a wicket but it’s four instead. Strong start for Mumbai.
- First Inning Start: Rohit and de Kock are at the crease. Rohit is on strike. Ashwin will open the attack.
- Mumbai Indians (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Rohit Sharma(c), Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga
- Kings XI Punjab (Playing XI): Lokesh Rahul(w), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Hardus Viljoen, Ravichandran Ashwin(c), Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Andrew Tye
