IPL2017: Kings XI Punjab defeats Mumbai Indians by 7 runs

"He [Amla] is an experienced player and has played more than 100 Test matches and averages close to 50 in Test cricket and also one-day cricket". The match is a "virtual knockout" for both the teams as they aim to secure the final spot in the IPL play-offs. While there is no doubt that the RPS bowlers were impressive, the lesser said about the KXIP batters the better. The match was close enough as Pollard nearly won the match for his team. Whereas KXIP has won two, RPS scripted a sole victory. Mumbai Indians have already qualified with 18 points and have a game left against Kolkata Knight Riders.

However, they fell in successive overs and when Nitish Rana was dismissed the hosts were 121-4, requiring 110 from just 44 balls. In such a scenario, KKR, KXIP and RPS will end with 16 points each and SRH will finish at number two behind Mumbai Indians. However, Ajinkya Rahane (34 not out) and Smith (15no) guided Supergiant home easily. While they have seldom disappointed, RPS will lose it's all hopes.

At 14.5 crore, he has repaid every penny that he has been paid so far. "Shardul (Thakur) was outstanding, (Jaydev) Unadkat again was outstanding", he said. This will hold them in good stead going and in the final league, it will work.

The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman batted through the innings, staying unbeaten on 93 from 55 deliveries.

Trump Meets Palestinian Leader Abbas to Weigh Peace Prospects
According to former White House official Dennis Ross, Trump was helping Abbas by extending the White House invite. He said "it's about time" for Israel to stop occupying Palestinian lands and to recognize a Palestinian state.

New Zealand opener Martin Guptill went for a first ball duck and Shaun Marsh followed quickly for 10. As they face another must-win situation, it remains to be seen if Glen Maxwell's bravehearts can continue with their brand of fearless cricket. KXIP's bowling too has been on the mark where actually Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma's performance work in the favor of team management.

Rahul Tewatia (4) hit a square drive and then mistimed a pull from Shardul Thakur. "The kind of consistency he showed, none of the other players could do that, an individual couldn't take responsibility".

Lendl Simmons looked like mounting a response in kind by smashing five fours and four sixes for 59 runs before he was caught on the long-on boundary one-handed by a flying Guptill to wrest momentum back Kings XI's way. "But he didn't fire in eight or nine games".

With not much to chase, RPS came out with a concerted plan that Tripathi will do the hitting, while Rahane will play the sheet anchor role.
