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

Kings XI Punjab would be hoping to bounce back to winning ways against Mumbai Indians

In the 50th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL), desperate Mumbai Indians squad under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma will face inconsistent Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium Mumbai in the must-win clash on Wednesday.

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. "We would be sitting comfortably with 14 to 16 points".

Match Predictions - Statistically, Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians always had neck-to-neck contests and out of 21 matches played, Mumbai managed to win 11 and Kings XI Punjab won 10 games.

However, there is no official statement from the management, and it is believed that they might not take such drastic decision for the last two matches. If they beat Chennai Super Kings in their last game, they are assured a play-off spot. But if one looks closely, even in bowling, except for Andrew Tye and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, none of the bowlers have fired in the last few games.Axar patel, who was retained by KXIP, has only bagged three wickets in the seven matches he has played. While Kings XI Punjab have five wins and three defeats after a strong start, Rajasthan Royals, winners of IPL 2008 are struggling in their chase for a playoff berth, after three victories and five losses.

If Rajasthan Royals lose: They will be eliminated from the play-off race. Kohli's side will be banking on Sunrisers Hyderabad to beat Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab losing to Chennai Super Kings.

Things aren't working out very well for Kings XI Punjab team, and one can say it without question that Kings have fallen on hard times.

"Well, that's one way to meet the challenge of containing the opposing batsmen in the last five overs of their innings: bowl them out in 15 overs!"
