Kings XI Punjab halt Mumbai's winning run

Kings XI Punjab halted Mumbai Indians' winning streak with a thrilling one-run victory off the last ball in the Indian Premier League at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.

In a thrilling final phase of the match, the home team - chasing the visitors' 189 for four - were dismissed for 188 after losing their last six wickets in three overs and one ball in a dramatic change of fortunes.

Seemingly cruising to a comfortable victory with captain Sachin Tendulkar (65) leading from front, Mumbai Indians suddenly lost the plot and a clutch of wickets (mostly to run-outs and the list included their skipper) to end up on the losing side.

From 159 for three in 16.5 overs, the home team slumped to 188 all out when last man Vikrant Yeligati was run out at the non-striker's end by a superb piece of fielding by Punjab XI skipper Yuvraj Singh when two runs were needed off the final ball
