Krunal and Rohit clinch Indians victory

Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians: Indian Premier League 34th league match is between the Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians.

Chasing 175 for win, Mumbai reached the target with a over to spare.

Burks, in a statement released by Ryan's office, said "I strongly disagree with Father Conroy's recollection of our conversation". Sean Patrick Maloney of NY calls a "shameful anti-Catholic move motivated by conservative extremists in Congress".

Earlier in the evening, put in to bat first, Punjab once again took off to a fiery start riding on the clinical opening partnership of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle with the Jamaican blasting his 24th IPL fifty. It was KXIP's third defeat in eight games as they remained at fourth in the points table with 10 points.

The right-handed Mumbai batsman has only scored two half-centuries to his name.

Japanese embassy will not be relocated to Quds: Shinzo Abe
That came as Amnesty International called for an arms embargo against Israel over its use of live fire in Gaza. The result of this decision, the United States will move its Embassy from tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

KXIP XI: C Gayle, L Rahul, M Agarwal, K Nair, Y Singh, MP Stoinis, A Patel, R Ashwin, A Tye, M Ur Rahman, A Rajpoot. Krunal's magnificent 12-ball cameo was studded with two sixes and four fours, while Rohit smacked two sixes and a four during his 15-ball knock. When Ishan Kishan (25) was dismissed, the score read 100/3 after 13 overs. Punjab, who had played two games at the venue last season - one of them against Mumbai where they had failed to defend 198 - clearly knew that anything below 200 was not going to be enough on the surface. South African Jean-Paul Duminy has included in only several amusements and played a solitary innings hitting 23 runs. He has scored 76 runs in six innings so far. But the onslaught came from Krunal Pandya as he hit Stoinis for two fours off consecutive balls and ended the over with a very big six over deep mid-wicket.

Mumbai's find of the tournament Mayank Markande came up with the first breakthrough after dismissing Rahul in the seventh over with the scoreboard reading 54 runs. Given the dimension of the Holkar Stadium, Gayle would be desperate to make it big in Indore and do what he does best- hit sixes. Yuvraj Singh (14 off 14) made a disappointing comeback after being dropped in the previous game. It was an eventful over though as Karun Nair erred in his call and got Yuvraj, one of the three changes Punjab made, run out at the batting end. Jasprit Bumrah and Co were able to tighten things up. Bumrah, especially, was brilliant as he conceded just 19 runs in four overs.

However, he was still pining for a return of Last Man Standing at the time, telling ET, "I still miss Last Man Standing ". At first, Allen posted a non-specific "stay tuned" tweet to his verified Twitter account .

If it was not for Marcus Stoinis, KXIP would have ended up way short of the expected mark. His unbeaten 15-ball 29 and Chris Gayle's 40-ball 50 took Punjab to 174 for 6 in their first home game at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on Friday (May 4).
