Rohit Sharma suffers an injury ahead of the World Cup team announcement

MI vs KXIP Head-to-Head

MI vs KXIP Head-to-Head

Meanwhile, Kieron Pollard will lead the Mumbai side in the game as the franchise, in its statement released on their official website, confirmed that the team management has made a decision to rest Rohit Sharma as a precautionary measure.

KL Rahul opened the batting and scored 94. Joseph straight-drove Ankit Rajpoot for two runs off the last ball to ensure a thrilling three-wicket win for MI in a game which finished well past midnight, making a mockery of T20 being a 'short and sweet version of cricket'.

While MI managed to keep KXIP openers - Rahul and Chris Gayle - in check as the first three overs yielded only 11 runs, Rahul hit a six in the fourth over before Gayle cut loose in the fourth over, bowled by Jason Behrendorff, hitting three sixes and a four as KXIP upped the ante.

But Alzarri Joseph (15 not out) kept his cool to take his team over the line with two needed from the last ball.

Pollard, standing in for Rohit Sharma, who missed out on the game due to leg spasm injury, promoted himself in the order. Shami, however got rid of the the Pandya brothers in space of four balls. After his match-winning 71 on Monday night, Rahul now has 217 runs from six games this season at an average of 54.25 with three fifties.

That makes the involvement of Curry (Under Armour contract through 2024) and Harden ( Adidas ) almost impossible, sources say. In fact, Warner Bros.is responsible for roping in talent, not James.

The duo's 116-run stand in 77 balls took the Wankhede by storm.

Rahul had missed out on a hundred in this fixture previous year but made it count this time with a sublime knock at Mumbai's backyard. After a moderate start, finally they were looking to come back to their rhythm in the last match. While Rahul smashed his way to a brilliant hundred, Pandya went for 57 runs in his four overs, even though he took a couple of wickets.

Gayle's mayhem ended when he was caught at deep mid-wicket off Behrendorff to nip his opening partnership with Rahul.

KXIP, on the other hand, have won four out of six matches to secure the third place on the table.

The Mumbai Indians skipper was doing his training drills on April 9 at the Wankhede Stadium and it was during his running session that Rohit pulled up clutching his right thigh.
