Mumbai pull off last-ball thriller

Stand-in captain Kieron Pollard's sensational 83-run knock put KL Rahul's maiden Indian Premier League hundred in the shade as Mumbai Indians pulled off a thrilling last-ball three-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab in Mumbai yesterday.

Rahul and Chris Gayle, who struck a 36-ball 63, powered Kings XI Punjab to an imposing 197 for four after being asked to bat.

Pollard single handedly brought his side back in the game with his 31-ball knock, punishing the Punjab bowlers with 10 sixes and three fours.

Alzarri Joseph (15 not out), who added a crucial 54 runs in 23 balls with Pollard for the seventh wicket, and Rahul Chahar (1) managed to hold their nerves to take side past the finish line.
