7.50pm Over at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi Capitals have chosen to bowl against Kolkata Knight Riders. Sandeep Lamichhane and Chris Morris will play their first games of the season today. I'm not sure we'll get to see the presentation ceremony from this match just yet, so do hop over to our ball-by-ball from the game in Delhi, or stay right here and watch our experts, Deep Dasgupta and Brad Hodge, build up to that game. I'm off for now, good night! Vijay: "Some credits to be given to punjab bowlers especially the spinners."

Virag: "MI cannot get by with 8 over of part time period .. They have to use 4 specialist bowlers and 4 overs total from allrounders (Pandyas)."

Rishabh: "I think MI pacers have barely used the short ball, which was essential given the large square boundaries." -- They did try it, but the target wasn't big enough to force the batsmen into trying to hit those balls for six.

Kisun: "MI will have to make some tough calls following this loss. Pollard not performing. Malinga, Yuvi not finished yet, but far from the forces they used to be. Their presence weakens the fielding as well. Not looking like potential qualifiers at the moment are Mumbai."

Koustav: "Has to be one of the best innings played by KL Rahul till date. Scoring the ugly runs is the most difficult thing. Hope this brings about a flurry of runs in future."

7.38pm Comprehensive win for Kings XI. Mumbai just didn't set them a big enough target on a flat deck, and that allowed KL Rahul to play something of an anchor role (not sure whether by accident or design, given that he was struggling to find the gaps initially, and seemed to work his way back into form as he got his eye in), with Gayle and Agarwal supplying the boundaries at the other end. Once Rahul was set, he read the fields and picked the gaps brilliantly.

Bumrah to Miller, 1 run, short, gets up to chest height fairly wide outside off, Miller pulls to the left of deep square leg and completes the job
18.3

Bumrah to Miller, no run, short, angling across the left-hander. Miller looks to jump across and work it against the angle, can't put bat to ball

Bumrah to Rahul, 1 run, short, angling into off stump, steps across and hooks to the left of fine leg

Bumrah to Rahul, FOUR runs, back of a length, not too far outside off, and third man is back, but he's fairly square, and Bumrah offers Rahul plenty of pace to use, just opens his bat face and guides it down nice and fine

Bumrah to bowl the 19th with Kings XI only needing six runs. Mumbai need a miraculous over here. Mid-off is up again.

END OF OVER:
18 | 8 Runs | KXIP: 171/2 (6 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 9.50, RRR: 3.00)

McClenaghan to Miller, FOUR runs, makes room premeditatedly, and leaves McClenaghan with two options - follow him or make him reach for the ball. Goes for option two, with a full one outside off, but it's still within his reach and he frees his arms to slap it away to the left of deep point

McClenaghan to Miller, 1 wide, looks for the yorker, ends up sliding a low full-toss down the leg side. That brings up the 50 partnership, off just 30 balls
