41 days of IPL with lots of ups and down has finally reached to a deciding spots where knock out matches will begin tonight as Mumbai will take on Pune at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

The must-win game turned out to be a cake-walk for Rising Pune Supergiant as they defeated Kings XI Punjab by 9 wickets in a low-scoring game at MCA Stadium, Gahunje on Sunday.

Maxwell, whose side had enjoyed a late season resurgence to push for finals agreed with Smith.

Parthiv Patel (52 off 40) was solid at the other end and even used the long handle effectively to smash three sixes on the on side. Having the likes of Steve Smith, MS Dhoni and Ajinkya Rahane, who are masters of dealing with pressure situations, is certainly going to boost the visitors, who would want to make an impact in their last season as a unit.

Martin Guptill (0) uppishly drove to Manoj Tiwary at short cover off the very first delivery from Unadkat.

In fact, Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) have won three of the four encounters between the two teams and the last one would be rankling the Rohit Sharma-led team as they looked in control for most period while chasing 161run target.

Sehwag stated that the season was better than the previous two outings for the Kings XI Punjab but stressed that the incosistency did the team in.

The experienced Lasith Malinga despite his inconsistency, wicket-taker Mitchell McClenaghan and the dependable Jasprit Bumrah are likely to be back after a one game rest along with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.

In reply, Mumbai Indians kept losing wickets at the regular intervals.
