Chasing a target of 169, Rohit Sharma hit 50 off 30 balls but Mumbai were struggling on 137-6 with 32 needed off the final two overs.

Kings XI leg-spinner Piyush Chawla's penultimate over disappeared for 27 runs, including three sixes and two fours as Rayudu (34no) and Peterson (16no) combined to see their side across the line with a stand of 36 from 14 balls.
