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.


Punjab: 197 for 4 in 20 overs (Rahul 100 not out, Gayle 63; Pandya 2-57, Behrendorff 1-35)

Mumbai: 198 for 7 in 20 overs (Pollard 83, De Kock 24; Shami 3-21, Ashwin 1-37)

Result: Mumbai won by 3 wickets.

Player-of-the-match: Kieron Pollard.
