We are treating our last league game as finals: KXIP's Tewatia

Martin Guptill showed off his superb fielding skills in the Kings XI Punjab's win over Mumbai. Bumrah bowled tight third over but Lasith Malinga (0/45) went for 19 runs in his first over as visitors raced to 68 before Guptill holed out in the sixth over as introducing Karn Sharma inside powerplays worked briefly.

Steve Smith's Rising Pune Supergiants have claimed the fourth and final Indian Premier League finals berth by destroying Glenn Maxwell's Kings XI Punjab side.

Maxwell Mayhem: Aussie Glenn Maxwell is coming into his own at the back end of IPL10, with another match-winning knock seeing his side to victory, this time over the ladder-leaders Mumbai.

Christian took wicket of Patel. RPS is up against KXIP and this Sunday (May 14) match is going to be as interesting as it can be.

Comfortably placed at 131/2, the stage was set for another Aussie Shaun Marsh (25 off 16) to press the accelerator from the first ball. With Mumbai Indians having won the toss and chosen to field, Kings XI Punjab scored a mammoth 230 for 3 in 20 overs.

Almirola, 33, caught the worst of a three-car collision with Joey Logano and Danica Patrick during Saturday's race. Richard Petty Motorsports says it will provide further updates on Almirola's status when it becomes available.

Simmons, who scored his half-century off only 27 balls, hit five boundaries and four sixes, before a brilliant effort at the long-on boundary from Martin Guptill saw the Caribbean worldwide head back to the dug-out. Unadkat plucked a spectacular diving catch at short fine leg to dismiss Rahul Tewatia (4) and Maxwell (0) flicked the ball to the safe hands of Rahane at deep square leg.

After scoring 30 runs in 13 balls, Hardik Pandya lost his wicket.

The Kings XI seamer was only used for two overs, conceding a whopping 27 runs off his second for overall figures of 0-40. Mohit Sharma gave only 7 runs in last over when Mumbai needed 16 of the final over. Axat Patel raised some hopes with his 22 runs, which was the highest individual score for KXIP.

Skipper Maxwell joined in as he struck two massive sixes, one over long on off and other over extra cover off Karn with Punjab completing 100 in just 8 overs. The other batsmen struggled to score runs in front of the Punjab bowlers but Ben Stokes took the responsibility and ensured that he guided the team to dependable score. However, thanks to some unexpected results in the last week - most notably Kings XI Punjab beating Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders, and Rising Pune Supergiant losing to Delhi Daredevils - there is still plenty to play for, for the five teams that still have a shot at the top four slots.

In response, Mumbai made their highest-ever total as West Indian batsman Lendl Simmons hit 59 from 32 balls and fellow countryman Kieron Pollard finished unbeaten on 50 from 24 balls, but still came up just short.
