Host Mumbai Indians (186 for eight) beat Kings XI Punjab (183 for five) by three runs at the Wankhede Stadium in the Indian Premier League on Wednesday. 

Lokesh Rahul claimed 94 for the visitors, who also boasted the bowling performance of the day from Andrew Tye as he bagged four wickets, but it was not enough for them.

The Indians have moved to fourth in the table with the win:

Mumbai were asked to bat first, and despite an exceptional bowling effort from Tye, they were able to post 186 runs.

Kieron Pollard stood out for the hosts with his knock of 50 from 23 balls, while Krunal Pandya picked up 32 from the same number of deliveries.

Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan were the only others to reach or surpass 20 runs. Along with Evin Lewis and Hardik Pandya, both fell victim to Tye, who not only claimed four wickets from as many overs but also limited Mumbai to just 16 runs in that time.

ESPNcricinfo's Bharath Seervi praised Tye's efforts:

Andrew Tye is the first bowler to pick three four-wicket hauls in an IPL seasons and he's got them in a span of just four games. #MIvKXIP

Unlike Mumbai, the visitor's innings was less of a teamwide effort as Rahul and Aaron Finch provided the majority of the impetus in their chase, racking up 140 runs and 17 boundaries between them.

Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan expressed his admiration for Rahul:

Michael Vaughan @MichaelVaughan

KL Rahul is some player .. He needs to be playing all formats for #India .. #IPL2018

Tye's effort was not the only impressive display of bowling on Wednesday, and Punjab were stopped in their tracks by Jasprit Bumrah, whose haul of wickets included Rahul, Finch and Marcus Stoinis.

Meanwhile, Mitchell McClenaghan took the stumps of Chris Gayle and Yuvraj Singh, ensuring the visitors fell just short in their chase.
