IPL 2018 | MI vs KXIP, match 50: Everything you need to know

We aren’t one of the champion sides’ KXIP captain Ashwin says he expected his team to struggle

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

While Mumbai have been on an upward spiral, claiming three wins from past 5 matches in the IPL, it has been right opposite for Punjab who have failed to replicate their from the first half of the season into the second as their opponents exposed their over-reliance Chris Gayle and KL Rahul. Here are the scenarios for Mumbai Indians, Kings XI Punjab, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.

Hosts Mumbai Indians (MI) will fancy beating a floundering Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) when both sides face-off in a must-win match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Mumbai on Wednesday. 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. If they lose their last two games, they are eliminated.

Because of the aforementioned resurgence, Mumbai Indians have somehow dragged themselves back into contention for a playoff spot while Kings XI Punjab have got themselves in the thick of action instead of serenely sitting on the top of the pile like Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

If Rajasthan Royals win: They knock out Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB defeated the Kings XI Punjab by 10 wickets on Monday at the backyard of the Punjab XI in Indore.

Defense lawyers have questioned why the policies under consideration carve out exceptions for people with criminal histories. Vance said it's part of a new effort to reduce inequality and unnecessary interactions with the criminal justice system.

Mumbai Indians have an impressive net run-rate to brag about, but their middle order has been a grain in the shoes as of late.

If Rajasthan Royals lose: They will be eliminated from the play-off race.

Punjab will be relieved by the fact that Aaron Finch returned to form with a 34 & 26 during the loss to Kolkata Knight Riders and RCB, respectively. Mumbai Indians has already beaten Kings XI Punjab once this year. If Rohit Sharma's side wins against KXIP then KKR will be hoping for Delhi Daredevils to beat them in their last game.

"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!"
