Kings bowled out for 88 as RCB thrash KXIP by 10 wickets

With 10 points, the three-time champions are placed at the sixth spot in the IPL points table while their opponents are a spot ahead with 12 points in their kitty.

However, Mumbai's middle order failed miserably including skipper Rohit. After opening stand of 36 runs between openers KL Rahul and Chris Gayle, RCB bowlers completely dominated the match. Save his match-winning knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore here, Rohit has failed to perform to his potential and MI need him in cracking form, backed up by the Pandya brothers Hardik and Krunal.

Afghanistan leg-spinner Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman's hand injury is another cause of worry for Punjab, which means that the responsibility of claiming wickets during the middle overs shall fall upon skipper Ashwin and Axar Patel.

Mumbai have to win both their remaining two matches to keep their chances alive for advancing to the play-offs.

'Click it or ticket' seatbelt enforcement starts today
During the campaign, officials say law enforcement will adopt a "zero-tolerance approach toward violators". To help keep drivers and passengers safe, Crawford County is reminding motorists to Click It or Ticket .

The Mumbai Indians have been in a do-or-die situation in the past few matches after failing to gather enough points in the first half of the season, that saw them loitering at the bottom end of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 standings.

In the bowling department, the home side will be demanding some crafty manoeuvres with the ball from Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya and left arm pacer Mitchell McClenaghan to contain KXIP's KL Rahul and Chris Gayle. If they also win their last game against Delhi Daredevils, they will hope Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday, Kings XI Punjab lose their last game to Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals lose to Royal Challengers Bangalore so that it does not boil down to Net Run-Rate. After bagging five wins out of first six games, they managed to clinch just one from the rest six matches.

It has been a story similar to Mumbai's for KXIP whose openers - Rahul and Gayle - were giving them good starts until last night when both succumbed to Yadav's short balls. They are now in danger of missing out on playoff berth if they fail to win the final two games. "We would be sitting comfortably with 14 to 16 points". At Wankhede, however, MI have won only 3 of 7 matches, with KXIP coming out on top in 4 occasions.
