We will take a nothing-to-lose attitude against RPS: Saha

Brief Scores: Kings XI Punjab 230/3 (Wriddhiman Saha 93 not out, Glenn Maxwell 47, Martin Guptill 36, Jasprit Bumrah 1/24) vs Mumbai Indians.

As Kings XI bowler Mohit Sharma began the final over, Mumbai still needed 16 from the final six balls. The next delivery was pulled over square leg for a six. Mumbai Indians have already qualified with 18 points and have a game left against Kolkata Knight Riders. If Sunrisers lose their remaining fixture against Gujarat Lions, then Kings XI will make the cut with 16 points, but Rising Pune could also be pushed out if they lose their remaining two matches and Sunrisers win their last game. Even when we were batting, they bowled well in the death and we couldn't hit that well, we were also exhausted.

Faced with a big target of 231, the hosts started off well with a 99-run opening stand between Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel.

Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Pathel came out with great intent putting on 99 for the opening wicket before the latter holed out to Mohit Sharma for 38.

15 great white sharks spotted close to California paddle-boarders
With more and more shark sightings off the Long Beach coast, beachgoers are being warned to enter the water at their own risk. The sharks were seen just south of California's San Onofre State Beach, where a woman was bitten by a shark last month.

Leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia then bowled a half-tracker to rival skipper Rohit Sharma (5), who provided the simplest of catches to Guptill at deep-mid-wicket. I wasn't expecting it since I have been batting in the middle-order this season, but I went out there, played a few shots, rotated the strike and fortunately got the runs on the boar When you were batting in the middle-order, you were not able to express yourself fully and today when you got the opportunity, it looked like the batting flare was back and it was all falling in place for you.

Sandeep Sharma accounted for Pandya but there was a seamless transition as his replacement in the middle Karn Sharma bludgeoned 19 from six balls.

Luckily, for the few supporters dressed in red at the Wankhede, Mohit redeemed himself from a shocker of an evening by bowling his three best yorkers of the tournament to close out the final over against Pollard and claim a meagre seven-run victory for the Kings. Saha's 55-ball knock included 11 boundaries and five sixes.

MI bowlers had an off day as the visiting batsmen toyed with their bowling. The visitors' innings was built around four significant partnerships; it was the first time this season that a team's innings had 3 partnerships of 50 or more.

Punjab were well-poised at 173/2 at the end of 15 overs and smashed 57 off last five overs to post the their overall highest score at the Wankhede. Put into bat, KXIP posted 230-3 riding on the back of WriddhimanSaha's unbeaten 93.

Batting first, Martin Guptill and WriddhimanSahahelped KXIP to their season-best powerplay score; the opening pair added 71 runs in the first six overs with both batsmen contributing in nearly equal proportions. He hit the ball in the deep mid-wicket region and ran for two with intent and goal.

Guptill was in his element hitting a towering six over long off Malinga.
