IPL 2017 55th Match: Supergiants qualify for playoffs, Kings XI miss out

IPL 2017

"The way they bowled with the little match experience they have, I think they have contributed majorly to get the team to this position in the league", said Rahane. RPS also happened to be the neighbour of the team Mumbai. Mumbai, who had topped the group stages, remain in the competition and will meet the victor of Eliminator between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders.

The team losing tomorrow will get another opportunity to reach gala finale and victor will be competing with each after there will be an elimination from the SRH and KKR.

Pune, who decimated Kings XI Punjab by nine wickets to finish on the second spot, will take confidence from that game. MI consistency in the performance is indicated by the fact they finished at the top of the points table after the league stages.

Mumbai has been in roaring form and their batsmen have been consistently among the runs.

Surely, the match would a great to watch as both the teams lock horns for the place in the final. The surface may have been slow and Mumbai's variations were effective, but in any case, a score of close to 170 was the best Rising Pune could hope for, which meant Mumbai were never out of the game. The diminutive dynamo Parthiv Patel and the West Indian hurricane Lendl Simmons have emerged as a deadly opening combination.

James, Love help Cavs rout Celtics 117-104 in Game 1
Love opened up the floor for James, burying outside jumpers and forcing Boston to leave defenders one-on-one with James. LeBron James scored 38 points against Boston in Game 1, but he said he wasn't playing his best .

Smith took joy in the fact that Pune proved to be Mumbai's nemesis every time they met this season. On the other hand, Pune can be destructive in both the departments with so many experienced players in the side who can perform beyond their best on their given day.

Also, hitting Harbhajan for too many runs now it seems easy for the team to give competition to the opposite team. Dhoni's strike rate in his first 10 balls in the IPL was 88.52. However, the loser in this match gets another chance, in the Qualifier 2 at Bangalore on May 19. Rising Supergiants Pune will obviously miss the presence of Ben Stokes.

There were another two sixes from Dhoni in the last over from Jasprit Bumrah and Tiwary was run out off the final ball in a dramatic end to the innings after making 58 from only 48 deliveries. Shardul Thakur's performance is actually going to matters at this Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai match of today.

MS Dhoni (40 not out) announced his arrival with a six to deep midwicket and by the 18th over, Pune reached 121 for three. Mumbai Indians (MI) and Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) will face each other in the Qualifier 1 on May 16 at the Wankhede Stadium.
