Pollard helps Mumbai stun Punjab


Kieron Pollard hit a 31-ball 83 as Mumbai Indians chased down 198 and defeated Kings XI Punjab by 3 wickets at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday. KL Rahul's maiden IPL hundred went in vain. Chasing 198, MI were 65 for 3 off 10 overs but Pollard's fireworks stunned KXIP who were the more dominant team for the first 30 overs of the match.

Pollard's knock was studded with 3 fours and 10 sixes. Thanks to his blitz, Mumbai Indians scored 133 runs off the final 10 overs of the innings to record a memorable win. Rahul was unbeaten on 100 off 64 balls while Chris Gayle blasted 63 off 36 balls as Kings XI Punjab posted 197 for 4 off their 20 overs.
