We will take a nothing-to-lose attitude against RPS: Saha

The Kings XI Punjab have kept their hopes of the playoffs alive with a tense win over the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede on Thursday.

Maxwell blasted 47 from just 21 balls as his side racked up 3/230 from their 20 overs, with Indian test wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha top scoring with an unbeaten 93 from 55 balls.

Glenn Maxwell has been productive against Mumbai's end-overs specialists: hitting a combined 53 runs off 31 balls against Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell McClenaghan.

In reply, Mumbai Indians almost pulled off the highest ever chase in IPL before being restricted to 223 in 20 overs.

If Sunrisers lose their remaining fixture against Gujarat Lions, then Kings XI will make the cut with 16 points, but Rising Pune could also be pushed out if they lose their remaining two matches and Sunrisers win their last game.

Earlier, Punjab had a flying start as their openers Wriddhiman Saha and Martin Guptill put on a 68-run stand in 5.3 overs.

Simmons (59) might have thought he had hit Maxwell for six just a few balls later but Guptill leapt into the air to claim a spectacular grab.

Pollard finished unbeaten on 50 from 24 balls.

Mumbai were left needing 16 from the final over and there was controversy after the first ball as Pollard was called for one short as he looked to keep the strike, with suggestions that he had done so deliberately. They have lost games they should have won and are now placed 4th with 15 points from 13 games. Axar Patel, 7. Rahul Tewatia, 8.

Mugshot: Michael Oher surrenders to Nashville police following assault allegation
The famous tackle allegedly got into an argument with the Uber driver during a ride with four others on April 14. Oher, a native of Memphis, Tennessee, is entering his third season with the Panthers.

"(Before) the last over I did not come to the bowler (Mohit), they (Mohit, Glenn Maxwell) were discussing that (Kieron) Pollard was hitting well, but he was exhausted, so if he was bowled a yorker, it would be tough for him", Saha said.

Despite Guptill's heroics, the Indians refused to go away as Pollard took control before some accurate death bowling from Mohit Sharma ensured Kings XI secured the result. Even though they are through to the playoffs and are on top of the table, their recent string of performances will be a cause of concern for the coaching staff and captain Rohit Sharma. The biggest six was measured at a massive 83 metres.

Leg-spinner Karn Sharma (19 off 6) used the long handle to good effect, adding 31 for the sixth wicket with Pollard as Mumbai crossed the 200-run mark before Mohit's slower delivery saw the southpaw's off-stump flying. Maxwell's innings had five sixes apart from two boundaries.

Ishant Sharma hasn't picked up a single wicket in this season's IPL, so his spot could be taken by either Varun Aaron or T Natarajan.
