Kings XI Punjab who have no chance of making it to the Semi Finals have earned a consolation win over table toppers Mumbai Indians at Mohali. Having restricted Mumbai Indians to 154 for 9, Kings XI in determined fashion got the target losing only 4 wickets with four balls to spare. Skipper Kumar Sangakkara saw that the chase was successful with a 42-ball 56. Openers Adrian Barath and Mahela Jayawardene laid the foundation with their 30s.

Mumbai Indians batting first had a pale start to get reduced to 96 for 5. Yet again the top order failed with the exception of AT Rayudu who made 33 from 18 balls. JP Duminy who finally got a game under his belt dragged the innings together with a 28-ball 35 to take his side to respectability. Leg Spinner Piyush Chawla and swing bowler Irfan Pathan picked up three wickets each while medium pacer Love Ablash bowled a superb last over which was filled up with nagging slower ones.
