The Kings XI got their chase off to great start thanks to Rahul and Aaron Finch (46) who had lifted the visitors to 145 for 1 at the end of the 16th over and looked odds on to take the contest home.

Asked to bat first at the Wankhede Stadium, MI lost opener Evin Lewis with 37 runs on the board. The Mumbai-based franchise stuttered throughout the match, however, ensured that they eventually cross the finishing line by a lean margin of three runs.
