  • The pitch is a belter and Mumbai also have the resources in their batting to scale this target. Rohit Sharma is missing today and that's a blow but still the hosts will be banking on the likes of Quinton de Kock, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav to deliver the goods. We are expecting a cracking chase. Do join us in a short while.
  • Lokesh Rahul is up for an interview. Starts up by saying that he honestly thought the way they started they should have ended with 200 easily but the wickets in between stopped the run flow. Adds up that they are happy with the way they finished. States that the plan with Gayle was to play normal cricketing shots in the Powerplay and if they do that they would make good runs. Informs that he looked to take it deep so he could hit in the death overs but he delayed going after the bowlers by a couple of overs as Gayle and Miller got out in succession. Hopes that Ashwin and others can use the conditions well and if they get early wickets, they can win the game easily.
  • Mumbai were brilliant in the first four overs but then were equally poor in the next 8 overs or so. They did make a comeback of sorts after removing Gayle as a few wickets fell in a hurry but then KL Rahul took control and scored a scintillating hundred. The hosts completely lost the plot in the last three overs where they ended up conceding 54 runs. Rahul Chahar was the standout bowler for them as, amidst all the carnage, he bowled four economical overs.
  • That's a big total posted on the board by Punjab. Mumbai, though, will feel that it could have been even worse. After a quiet beginning, the pair of Gayle and Rahul exploded. They took the Mumbai bowlers to the cleaners and amassed runs at will. They put together a century stand in a very quick time and Punjab looked well on course for a total in excess of 200. A moment in the game when the Jamaican felt the heat and called the physio resulted in the visiting team losing some momentum as the West Indian got out immediately after that.
  • 19.6 FOUR! Mandeep ends proceedings with a boundary. Back of a length delivery outside off, Mandeep stays back and slaps it through backward point for a boundary. 13 from the last over and 38 from the last two. Punjab finish on 197/4!
  • 19.5 That was quick! Wow! Another short one and on the body. Rahul is way too late in the pull shot. The ball hits him on the shoulder. He throws his bat straightaway but then realizes Agarwal has almost reached him. He then goes for a single. The fielder at point does not have a shy.
  • 19.4 Rahul smashes this towards long off. They take one, Rahul slips at the bowler's end but he still manages to complete the second. Brings up his ton. His maiden century in this league. What a knock this is. Just brilliant. He played second fiddle to Gayle but stayed out there and has accelerated when his team needed. Takes his helmet off and then soaks in all the applause by the crowd and his teammates.
  • 19.3 Two dots now as this is another quick bumper and on the body. Rahul is late on the pull. He wants a wide but it is not given. Bumrah really did not like getting hit for the biggie, the last two balls have really zipped through.
  • 19.2 Excellent comeback! Bends his back on this one and bowls it on a length and outside off, it zips through. Rahul looks to cut but misses.
  • 19.1 SIX! THAT IS MASSIVE! He moves onto 98! Bumrah misses the yorker but just, Rahul just whips it and it goes over the mid-wicket stand. A biggie to begin the last over.
  • 18.6 Fine delivery, yet again but 25 runs off the over. A near yorker on middle, Mandeep keeps it out off the inner half to mid-wicket and rushes back for the second run. The throw from the deep was very poor, otherwise the second run could have been close. 184/4
  • 18.5 Finally gets it right, Hardik. A yorker outside off, Rahul digs it out towards point for one.
  • 18.4 SIX! Boom! Rahul has taken Hardik to the cleaners. A back of a length delivery outside off, KL clears his front leg and pumps it over long off for a flat maximum.
  • 18.3 SIX! 16 from 3 balls. KL Rahul is on fire. Receives a short ball this time, he stays back inside the crease and pulls it massively over fine leg for a biggie.
  • 18.2 FOUR! Uppish but wide of the cover fielder inside the ring. Hardik tries the slower one but bowls it too wide outside off. Rahul latches onto it and forces it over the jumping cover fielder for a boundary.
  • 18.1 SIX! Bang! What a fine shot! Rahul shows no mercy on his best friend. The length is on the shorter side outside off, KL holds his pose inside the crease and spanks it over extra cover.
  • 17.6 Nope, as it ends with a single. Full and on middle, this is hit down to long on for a single. Still though an excellent over for the visitors. 16 from it. 159/4
  • 17.5 FOUR! Brilliant shot! The use of the wrists was outstanding there. It is full and outside off. KL Rahul at the very end just opens the face and guides it through backward point for a boundary. 15 from the over, can they make it a 21-run over or a 19-run over?
  • 17.4 Very full and on middle, Singh hits it down to long on for a single.
  • 17.4 Very wide! That has surely slipped out of Bumrah's hand. It is bowled way too wide outside off, the batsman leaves it, the ball bounces in front of de Kock who does not stop it cleanly and the batters take a single.
  • Mandeep Singh is the new batsman in.
  • 17.3 OUT! Bumrah has the last laugh! Curran tries to be cheeky as he looks to paddle scoop it. The pace though has been taken off on this delivery. Hence, he only manages to lob it towards the keeper who does not make any mistake.
  • 17.2 FOUR! Consecutive boundaries! Curran has come out all guns blazing. 150 up. Full and wide again outside off, Curran throws his bat at it, gets it over covers. The fielder in the deep looks to stop it with a dive but fails to do so.
  • 17.1 FOUR! Lovely shot to open your account. Much-needed boundary and the ideal start to this over for the visitors. Length delivery by Bumrah and it is going away from the angle after pitching on off. Curran, on the up, strokes it over covers and bags a boundary
  • Jasprit Bumrah is back into the attack.
  • 16.6 Two is the call, they push for it and they get it! Slower ball and on middle, Rahul works it through wide mid on and takes two. A brilliant 17th by Pandya, just the 5 runs and a wicket from it. 143/3
  • Sam Curran is the new batsman in.
  • 16.5 OUT! This over keeps getting better for Mumbai as Hardik gets Karun. Punjab losing their way here. Pandya goes for the yorker but ends up bowling a low full toss. Nair looks to slog sweep it but the bat turns in his hands. It goes off the top edge and it is a skier for Chahar at deep square leg. He judges it well and takes it nicely.
  • 16.4 Now a dot! Top bowling! A yorker on off, Karun jams it out towards the bowler.
  • 16.3 Well bowled again! Just three from the first three balls. Pandya bowls it full and on the stumps, Rahul looks to whip it but gets an inside edge onto the pads. The ball rolls towards the off side and a run is taken.
  • 16.2 Short and on the body, Nair pulls it towards fine leg. The fielder misfields but does not concede an extra run.
  • 16.1 In the air... safe again! Outside off, Rahul goes after it. It is not off the middle and it goes on the bounce to sweeper cover. A single only.
  • 15.6 Flighted delivery on middle, Rahul flicks it towards square leg for a run. 138/2
  • 15.5 Floated on middle, Nair sweeps it through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 15.4 Full toss on middle, Nair plays a slog sweep over mid-wicket. Rahul Chahar at deep mid-wicket tries to collect but fumbles. The batsmen pick up a couple. Karun Nair misses out on a boundary. It was a good opportunity for him.
  • 15.3 Full on off, Rahul drives it through covers for a single.
  • 15.2 Tossed up on middle, Nair makes room and plays it over covers. It lands in no man's land. The batsmen cross ends.
  • 15.1 Floated on off, Rahul plays it towards point for a run.
  • Karun Nair is the new batsman in. Krunal Pandya comes back into the attack.
  • 14.6 OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! The ploy to bowl full and wide has paid off for Pandya. He lets out a huge roar as he is delighted to get a wicket. Miller once again throws his bat at it but this time the ball takes the outside edge and goes into the mitts of the keeper. The dangerous Miller does not make an impact, his promotion does not work. Mumbai managing to crawl back into the game here. 131/2
  • 14.6 Another wide by Hardik! He is not happy with himself. Bowls it way too wide outside off, Miller lets it be. It has been wided.
  • 14.5 FOUR! STREAKY BUT EFFECTIVE! Full and outside off, Miller throws his bat at it but the ball flies off the outside edge and through the gap between point and short third man for a boundary.
  • 14.4 Short of a length delivery outside off, Rahul cuts it towards point for a single.
  • 14.3 Full on middle, Miller drives it towards mid on for a run.
  • 14.2 Full on middle, Rahul drives it towards long on for a run.
  • 14.1 Excellent fielding! The slower one outside off, Rahul may have been foxed but still manages to loft it over covers and wide of long off. Jason in the latter position runs to his left and then just before the ball crosses the ropes, pushes it back in. Two taken.
  • The strategic break has been signaled! Mumbai have broken through the opening stand and probably just at the right time. 6 more overs to go, if Mumbai can manage to pull things back and somehow keep the visitors under 180, they would be the happier side heading into the break. Punjab, on the other hand, have Rahul, who is set out there, and with still a lot of batting to come, they would hope to end strongly. Hardik Pandya is back.
  • 13.6 Bowls a leg spinner on leg, Miller looks to defend but gets an inside edge onto the pads. Rahul Chahar finishes with figures of 4-0-27-0. Outstanding work from the leggie. 121/1
  • 13.5 Good ball from Chahar. Tossed up on off, Miller defends it off the back foot.
  • 13.4 Floated on middle, Rahul comes down the track and plays it towards mid on for a run.
  • 13.3 Short on off, Rahul makes room and cuts it through point. The batsmen pick up a couple.
  • 13.2 Floated on middle, Miller plays it towards long on for a run.
  • 13.1 That almost rolls onto the stumps. Miller shows good awareness to kick it away. The leg spinner which pitches outside off and turns back in. Miller does not pick it and plays it very late. He gets a bottom edge and the ball seems to be rolling back onto the stumps but David kicks it away.
  • 12.6 On a length on middle, Miller flicks it towards mid-wicket and gets off the mark. Just 4 from Behrendorff's last along with the prized wicket of Gayle. He finishes with figures of 4-0-35-1. 117/1
  • David Miller is the new batsman in.
  • 12.5 OUT! In the air... taken! Mumbai get the wicket they so desperately wanted! Jason bowls it full and on middle, Gayle clears his front leg and looks to clear the mid-wicket fence. Does not get the desired distance as it is not off the middle and Krunal there in the deep holds onto the catch. A tired Gayle walks back but he has done a fine job. The foundation is set for the batters to come. Can Punjab capitalize or will Mumbai pull things back?
  • Stoppage in play. Chris Gayle probably is feeling the heat. The physio rushes out.
  • 12.4 Fifty for KL Rahul now. Three consecutive fifties for him now. 14th in the League. His half ton is not as exciting as his partner's but he has done a very good job. Needs to get going now though. He gets there with a single as he pushes it towards cover. Gayle though is down on his haunches after completing the run.
  • 12.3 Short delivery on leg, Rahul under edges his attempted pull shot behind to the keeper.
  • 12.2 Full on off, Gayle looks to go big but it goes of the inner half of the bat towards mid-wicket for a single.
  • 12.1 Starts off with one on the pads, Rahul fails to get it past short fine leg and only a single results.
  • Jason Behrendorff is back into the attack.
  • 11.6 Fullish and on leg, Rahul clips it through mid-wicket and keeps strike with himself. Good comeback by Chahar after going for a biggie first ball. 113/0
  • 11.5 Flatter and shorter on off, punched from the back foot to covers.
  • 11.4 Yet another drive from Rahul, this time he finds the gap by playing it square of the wicket on the off side. Good running between the wickets there, they have taken two runs.
  • 11.3 Walks down the track to a full ball and drives it to covers.
  • 11.2 Played to the point region by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 11.1 SIX! Gayle is unstoppable! Chahar begins this over with a maximum. He delivers a full and flighted ball wide outside off, Gayle kneels and sends it packing over long on.
  • 10.6 Well bowled! This is fired very full and outside off, Rahul looks to jam it out but fails to put bat on ball. Another productive over for the visitors. 103/0
  • 10.5 Rahul tries to be cheeky as he tries to play the paddle. Is a little early in the shot and it goes off the toe-end back to the bowler. Not sure he needs to do this with Gayle at the other end.
  • 10.4 In the air... but the ball lands in no man's land. Krunal nicely slows it up, seeing that Rahul uses his feet but does not get to the pitch of the ball. He still goes ahead with the shot. Ends up slicing it in the cover region and the batsmen take two.
  • 10.3 Krunal fires this one full and on off, Gayle smartly hits it down to long off for a single.
  • 10.2 SIX! How easy was that? A very slow and short delivery by Krunal. Gayle waits for it and shows tremendous power to loft it over the long on fence off the back foot. It also brings his 50 up and he does it in style. The dugout is up clapping the effort. A ton is on offer here. Also, the 100 is up for Punjab.
  • 10.1 Floated on off, Rahul plays it towards point for a run.
  • Krunal Pandya is into the attack.
  • 9.6 SIX! BANG! Chahar, due to the last delivery, gives this one more air in the hope of more turn. He though bowls it way too full. The spin is completely out of contention and Gayle tonks it over the long off fence. Spoils the over, still a good one but had that not gone for a biggie, it would have been a tremendous over. 93/0
  • 9.5 BEATEN! Nicely bowled! It is the googly which he lands on off, the ball turns away a little. Gayle looks to defend but the ball spins past the outside edge.
  • 9.4 Flighted delivery on leg, Gayle looks to sweep but gets hit low on the pads. Chahar appeals for lbw but the umpire shakes his head. Probably it might be pitching outside leg.
  • 9.3 Tossed up on leg, Chris looks to flick but gets hit on the thigh pad.
  • 9.2 Short and outside off, Gayle cuts it to covers.
  • 9.1 A chance? Tough to say that! Rahul looks to be cheeky as he tries the reverse sweep. He gets a feather on it but straight towards the keeper. De Kock fails to react in time as the ball hits him on the pads and rolls towards short fine leg for a run.
  • 8.6 A dot to end with. Some respite for Hardik Pandya. On a good length and outside off, Gayle taps it to covers. Tremendous over for Punjab. 17 runs have come from it. 86/0
  • 8.5 This time he executes what he has been trying to do. Bowls this one just inside the wide line, Gayle lets it be.
  • 8.5 Once again, Hardik looks to stay away from Gayle's hitting zone but ends up bowling it outside the tramline on the off side. Wided.
  • 8.4 FOUR! SLAPPED! Gayle is in some mood here! Hardik is just not sure where to bowl to him. This time he tries to bowl length and outside off. Gayle stands tall and slaps it through covers for a boundary. 16 runs and there are still two balls to go.
  • 8.4 WIDE! Pressure, pressure getting to the bowler! He tries to bowl it out of Gayle's reach but ends up bowling it way too wide. It has been wided.
  • 8.3 FOUR! Save your legs Hardik Pandya! Brute! This is fuller and on off, Gayle smashes it just past the bowler and to the long on fence.
  • 8.2 SIX! That is colossal! Gayle has picked the bones out of that one! It is short which is a good option against Gayle but you have to bowl at his body. This is on middle and nicely sitting up for the batsman. CG pulls it way over the square leg fence for a huge one.
  • 8.1 Drop and run! You do not see that a lot when Gayle is batting. Rahul taps it towards point and calls for a single, Gayle obliges and they complete it.
  • Hardik Pandya is on now!
  • 7.6 Floated on off, Gayle plays it to point. A good over from Chahar despite going for a boundary. 6 runs came from the over. 69/0
  • 7.5 Tossed up on leg, Gayle looks to tuck but gets hit low on the pads.
  • 7.4 Full and outside off, Rahul drives it through covers for a single.
  • 7.3 FOUR! WOW! What a shot! Excellent use of the wrists there. It is slightly fuller than Chahar should be bowling but still not a bad ball. Rahul plants his front foot ahead and then whips it through mid-wicket. It is in the gap in that region and a boundary.
  • 7.2 Tossed up on off, Gayle drives it towards mid off for a single.
  • 7.1 Gayle misses out there! A poor one to begin with by Chahar. It is bowled down the leg side, Gayle looks to sweep it fine but is a little too early into the shot. It goes off the back of the bat to short fine leg.
  • Strategic break. A watchful start from Punjab and then their openers have pressed on the accelerator. Both, Gayle and Rahul are looking in ominous touch and Mumbai need to strike quickly to separate this dangerous pair. Time for spin. Rahul Chahar is into the attack.
  • 6.6 On a good length on off, Gayle plays it towards covers. The fielder fires a direct hit at the stumps at the bowler's end but the batsman was well in. The batsmen cross ends. Big over for Punjab as 13 runs have come from this over. 63/0
  • 6.5 Full on middle, Rahul drives it towards long on for a run.
  • 6.4 On a good length on middle, Rahul flicks it towards square leg where Suryakumar Yadav does well to stop it and saves a run for the team.
  • 6.3 FOUR! A calypso style lofted drive! The slower ball and it is outside off, Rahul has his back leg up in the air and then just picks it over the mid off fielder. A boundary! 11 from the first three balls.
  • 6.2 SIX! Short and Rahul pounces onto it! A bumper and it bounces at a good height for the batsman. Rahul picks the length early, rocks back and sends it sailing over the mid-wicket fence.
  • 6.1 On a good length on off, Rahul taps it to point.
  • 6.1 WIDE! Down the leg side, Rahul looks to flick but misses. It has been wided.
  • Alzarri Joseph is back into the attack.
  • 5.6 A good finish by Bumrah. Back of a length on off and it is angling away. Gayle plays inside the line and lets it be. 7 from the last over of the Powerplay. Good work done from the visitors - They started off cautiously but once the two openers got their eyes in, they stepped on the gas. The first four overs fetched only 20 but the last two went for 30. 50/0
  • 5.5 50 up for the visitors and it has come up in good time! Length and outside off, Rahul guides it down to third man for a single.
  • 5.4 FOUR! Excellent placement! You have got brute force at one end and sublime timing at the other. It is the off cutter and it is a touch short. Rahul waits for it, goes back and then punches it through the gap in the cover region.
  • 5.3 Short of a length delivery on leg, Gayle nudges it towards fine leg. Siddhesh Lad chases it and does well to stop it. The batsmen take a run.
  • 5.2 On a good length and outside off, Gayle leaves it alone. Chris Gayle is looking not to take big risk against Bumrah.
  • 5.1 Full on middle, Rahul flicks it towards square leg for a run.
  • Jasprit Bumrah is back into the attack.
  • 4.6 SIX! Maximum to end! 23 from this over, a huge one and a much-needed one. Jason once again makes the mistake of bowling it too full on middle, Gayle easily strokes it over the bowler's head. The timing is such that it carries all the way. 43/0
  • 4.5 FOUR! This time Gayle picks the slower one and bags a boundary! Slower but there is width on offer and with no fielder in the deep on the off side that is just bad bowling. Gayle slaps it over covers and a boundary results.
  • 4.4 Good change in pace there! He bowls the slower one and on middle, Gayle does not pick it and he pushes it to mid off.
  • 4.3 SIX! Two-in-two! This is even bigger than the last one. Once again it is a poor delivery. Length and on middle, sits up to be hit. Gayle pulls it with aplomb, over the mid-wicket fence. This could be a big, big over. 13 from it already.
  • 4.2 SIX! Gayle gets into the act! He has absolutely smoked that. Right in Gayle's zone. Full and on middle, Chris lofts it over the long on fence.
  • 4.1 Length delivery on middle, Rahul flicks it towards mid-wicket for a run. There could have been a second but the batsmen stick with a single in this case.
  • 3.6 Nicely bowled by Joseph. On a good length on off, Rahul taps it towards point for a single. 20/0
  • 3.5 SIX! High and handsome! How stylish was that? Joseph angles it on the pads, Rahul says thank you very much and he nonchalantly flicks it high up in the air, it has the distance too as it goes over the backward square leg fence. First of the game.
  • 3.4 On a length on middle, Gayle plays it towards mid on for a run. Joseph is bowling at a good pace and he clocks this one at 144.5 kph.
  • 3.3 BEATEN! On a good length and outside off, Gayle looks to go big but misses it due to the away movement on this one.
  • 3.2 Bowls very full on middle, Rahul does well to jam it out and flick it towards mid-wicket for a run.
  • 3.1 Good start by Joseph. Length and on the off pole, Rahul goes back and blocks it out.
  • Alzarri Joseph is into the attack.
  • 2.6 Another single to end! So despite it going for a boundary early, it only costs Mumbai 7. Once again the line is a little too straight, Rahul works it towards wide mid on and takes a run. 11/0
  • 2.5 Lovely shot! This is angled into Gayle. He whips it through mid-wicket. There is protection in the deep so just a single.
  • 2.4 A little too straight and this is clipped around the corner for a single.
  • 2.3 Strange shot there! Rahul looks to work it through the leg side, not sure that is a clever shot as it is against the angle. The ball hits the top portion of the bat and rolls towards mid off.
  • 2.2 Goes back to bowling on the stumps this time, the batter strokes it to mid on.
  • 2.1 FOUR! Classic! Top shot! Save your legs. Back of a length and on off, Rahul stands tall and punches it through covers for the first boundary of the game. Ideal start to this one after two quiet overs.
  • 1.6 Bowls a bouncer, Gayle does well to duck under it. Just 3 runs from the over. Good start from Jasprit Bumrah. 4/0
  • 1.5 Bowls a full delivery outside off, it rises from the surface, Gayle looks to play but the ball just misses the edge by a whisker. It was bowled at 142.1 kph.
  • 1.4 Bowls a good length delivery on off, Rahul plays it towards third man for a single.
  • 1.3 On a good length on off, Gayle looks to defend but gets an outside edge. It goes towards third man for a run and Gayle gets off the mark.
  • 1.2 Full again on middle, Rahul drives it towards mid on for a single.
  • 1.1 Bumrah starts with a fuller one outside off, Rahul drives it to covers.
  • Jasprit Bumrah to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6 End of a top, top over by Behrendorff. He lands it on middle, Gayle is half-forward as he defends it. Just the single from the first one. 1/0
  • 0.5 Mumbai are underway! An edge there but for a single. Continues to bowl it on a length does Jason. It is outside off, Rahul hangs his bat out, it goes off the outside edge down to third man for a single.
  • 0.4 Another tentative shot that. Length and angling away from the off pole. Rahul looks to go hard at it but then at the very end, pulls his bat back.
  • 0.3 Attacks the off pole again, Rahul goes back and keeps it out. Three good balls to begin with.
  • 0.2 This one tails back in from outside off, just a little though. Rahul lunges and tries to keep it out but gets an inside edge onto his pads.
  • 0.1 A beautiful delivery to begin with! Excellent use of the angle that. It pitches on off and Rahul is worried about the one coming back. The ball though goes on with the angle. Rahul has a tentative poke and he gets beaten.
  • We are all set for the action to begin! The Mumbai players make their way out to the middle and they are followed by the two Punjab openers, Chris Gayle and KL Rahul. Jason Behrendorff to start the proceedings for the hosts. He will look for some swing. Will he get any? We will have to wait and watch as he steams in.

  • Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin, says they also wanted to bowl first due to the dew, however, the teams have defended well in the last two games over here. Informs they have two changes, one forced as Mayank Agarwal is out due to an injury and Karun Nair comes in for him and Hardus Viljoen replaces Mujeeb Ur Rahman.
  • Mumbai skipper, Kieron Pollard, says they want to bowl first as the dew comes into play later on and the wicket also does not change a lot. Mentions Rohit is fine, it is just a precautionary change. Informs Siddhesh Lad, the local boy, is making his debut and he is excited for this game. Ends by saying that choosing between Malinga and Joseph was difficult but you can't drop Alzarri after his performance in the last game.
  • TOSS - Mumbai win the toss and elect to bowl first.
  • PITCH REPORT - Pommie Mbangwa says it is humid but it is quite pleasant. Mentions the good length areas are the areas which has worked for the bowlers here and that is where the bowlers should be looking to bowl early on. Further adds the short ball should also be a good option but you need to get it right. Ends by saying the wicket is a good one though and it is expected to be a high scoring encounter.
  • Big news - Rohit Sharma is not playing today as he suffered a right leg muscle spasm yesterday during training. Kieron Pollard is leading Mumbai today.
  • Warm welcome everyone for Match 24 of this edition's Indian T20 League between Mumbai and Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium.

  • That's all from this nail-biting contest. On Thursday, Rajasthan will get ready to host Chennai at 2000 IST (1430 GMT). Do join us for all the action. Cheers!
  • Man of the Match and the victorious Mumbai skipper, Kieron Pollard says this knock is right up there among the best. Dedicates his innings to his wife who is celebrating her birthday today. States he enjoys batting at Wankhede and promoted himself up the order to target the spinners. Further adds that he wanted to keep calm. Also says the wicket was a difficult one to bowl on and praises his bowlers for pulling things back but admits that they didn't end well. He is happy to end on the winning side. Ends by saying, Rohit is the captain of this team, he was rested for precautionary measures and he will gladly hand back the captaincy to him once Sharma returns.
  • Hardik Pandya, who is up for an interview as well, starts by crediting Pollard for the way he batted. On his own batting, Pandya mentions the situation demanded him to go from the first ball itself. Also adds that the way they recovered in the chase from a precarious situation and brought the equation down to 4 runs off 4 balls, he thought that the game was in the bag.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin says the injury to Ankit Rajpoot was a problem for them and getting three overs out of him in the Powerplay was a bonus. Reckons the total was just about par with the dew and adds that it's a tough ground to defend. Mentions they were good with the ball in bits and pieces but could not end it well. Also, says that Sam Curran was under the pump and it is not easy bowling against Pollard and hopes that he will learn from this experience. States there are a few positives like Rahul's batting and their bowling initially, however, they failed to close it well. Hopes that they can get back to winning ways at home. Ends by informing that Chris Gayle has twisted his back and they will have to check his condition.
  • Punjab will be disappointed with the outcome. They dominated for most parts during the run chase but failed to keep the same intensity in the end overs. Mohammed Shami (4-0-21-3) was exceptional but same cannot be said for the other bowlers. When put under pressure, they just fell apart and that cost them the game. Here is what Ravichandran Ashwin has to say...
  • Earlier, KL Rahul and Chris Gayle went berserk and set the platform for a big score for Punjab. They stuttered a bit but then courtesy Rahul's century they posted 197 runs on the board. Chasing a stiff target, Mumbai kept losing wickets at regular intervals and always appeared behind the 8-ball. Kieron Pollard, though, held one end tightly and then unleashed when it mattered the most. His stands first with Hardik Pandya and then with Alzarri Joseph were very crucial in this run chase. Pollard getting dismissed in the final over made things interesting but with 4 needed off 4 balls, Alzarri finished the job on the last ball along with Rahul Chahar.
  • What a humdinger! Phew! A last-ball thriller is what we all want to watch and that's what was served tonight. A chase which didn't go accordingly to the plan for Mumbai turned out to be quite close all thanks to Kieron Pollard. The West Indian promoted himself up the order and played one heck of a knock to achieve this victory.
  • 19.6 MUMBAI WIN BY 3 WICKETS! What a win for them! The crowd has gone bonkers. The Mumbai players are running in the middle. Alzarri Joseph once again is the hero. Tremendous atmosphere at the Wankhede! You just have to love the thrill this format brings. Yet again a low full toss on middle, Joseph brings down a straight bat and pushes it down to long on. They run the first run hard, the fielder releases the throw from the deep but Rahul Chahar is off for the second run and reaches the bowler's end before the throw comes. Mad scenes.
  • 2 needed off the last ball... Tension everywhere... Rajput runs in, Joseph on strike...
  • 19.5 Terrific delivery, a low full toss on middle, Chahar only manages to work it through mid-wicket and takes a run.
  • 19.4 Too full in length on off, Joseph forces it down to long on and crosses for a run. The crowd is getting restless. 3 needed off 2 balls. Anyone smelling a Super Over?
  • 19.3 DOT BALL! Full toss on middle, Alzarri gets behind the line and pushes it back. Rajpoot runs across to his left and collects the ball. 4 needed off 3 balls.
  • Rahul Chahar is the new man in.
  • 19.2 OUT! Pollard is dismissed! Drama at the Wankhede! This game is not over yet. Rajpoot switches to over the wicket and delivers a short ball outside off. Pollard stands back to fetch it from there as he attempts to pull it over mid-wicket. He fails to gather enough power behind it and Miller in the deep takes his fourth catch of the evening. 4 needed off 4 balls.
  • 19.1 FOUR! A full toss on the pads, Pollard picks it up and smashes it behind square leg for a boundary. 4 needed off 5 balls.
  • 19.1 SIX! And it's a NO BALL! A low full toss on middle from 'round the wicket, Pollard mercilessly tonks it over mid-wicket for a biggie. Free Hit loading...
  • Nerves there for the young man. Rajpoot pulls out just before the delivery stride.
  • Ankit Rajpoot to bowl the last over! Huge responsibility on the young man's shoulders. He has 14 runs to defend. He has been off the field for a long time due to some injury. Will he be the hero?
  • 18.6 Very full in length and wide outside off, Alzarri reaches out for it and drives it towards point. Dot ball to end the over, 17 runs from it. 183/6
  • 18.5 Curran switches to 'round the wicket and serves a very full ball outside off, Pollard drives it through covers and crosses. Joseph has the license to go full the monty on the last ball.
  • 18.4 SIX! Into the night sky! Pollard is motoring. Curran showing his inexperience there. Continues to bowl in the slot. A length ball and it has been dispatched over mid-wicket. 16 needed off 8 balls.
  • 18.3 SIX! No need to take singles if you can hit such big shots! 10 off first three balls, the crowd is going bonkers. Curran serves right in the slot for Pollard and he hoists it over long off.
  • 18.2 Dot ball as Pollard denies a single. He powers a length ball over covers but finds the fielder in the deep.
  • 18.1 FOUR! Pollard has taken matters in his own hands! Curran delivers it full and wide outside off, Kieron shuffles across a bit and rockets it over extra cover for a boundary. 28 needed off 11 balls.
  • 17.6 Full toss, Alzarri forces it out to sweeper cover and Pollard denies the run. Smart. Another fine over by Shami. He has bowled out now. 4-0-21-3, magnificent effort. 166/6
  • 17.5 A slower one, on a length around off, Joseph steps back and drags it down to wide long on for a couple.
  • 17.4 FOUR! That's the boundary Mumbai desperately needed. Shami bowls it on a length but wide outside off. The mid off is up and Joseph muscles it past the left side of that very fielder for a boundary.
  • 17.3 Play and a miss! Good delivery by Shami as long as the batsman is not middling it. Short and on middle, Joesph winds up for a big pull across the line but misses.
  • Change of ball in the middle of the over. Interesting. Too much dew? Meanwhile, the physio is also out to give some treatment to Shami's fingers.
  • 17.2 Harsh to call that a dropped catch as it's hit with brute power. Back of a length delivery outside off, Pollard whacks it uppishly towards the bowler. Shami tries to catch but it brushes his left hand and deflects down to long off. A single taken.
  • 17.1 Excellent delivery. Spears in a very full ball on leg and gets it to angle down. Joseph fails to flick and it goes off his pads to the off side. The bowler appeals and the batsmen cross. Given as a run.
  • 16.6 SIX! Seventh biggie for the big West Indian. Curran errs on the final ball and delivers a full toss around off. Pollard swivels and effortlessly sends the ball sailing over mid-wicket. 14th fifty in the League for the Monster from Trinidad! 158/6
  • 16.5 Very well bowled. Curran serves a very full ball wide outside off, nearly yorker length, Pollard tries to reach out but misses.
  • 16.4 Too full in length outside off, Joseph opens the face of his bat and eases it down to third man for a run. Pollard back on strike, 46 needed off 20 balls.
  • 16.3 Curran smartly delivers a pacey delivery. A full toss outside off, Joseph pushes at it and gets beaten due to extra pace.
  • 16.2 Slower delivery, on a length outside off, Pollard mistimes his shot this time over extra cover. Just a run.
  • 16.1 SIX! Not from the middle of the bat but it still travels the distance. A length ball outside off, Kieron pounces onto it and dismisses it over long off.
  • Sam Curran is back.
  • 15.6 Some movement back into the batsman with good pace. Alzarri tries slogging but misses as it goes past the inside edge. Top over, two wickets and 9 runs from it. 144/6
  • 15.5 FOUR! That's uppish but safely goes to the fence. Short delivery on middle and leg, Joseph pulls it over backward square leg and Henriques (sub) rushes across to his right to attempt for the catch. But it falls just wide of his outstretched hands and goes to the boundary.
  • Alzarri Joseph is the new man in.
  • 15.4 OUT! Soft dismissal! Shami angles across a full ball on off, a well-disguised slower one, Krunal tries to go inside-out over covers but fails to get any timing behind his shot. A straightforward catch for David Miller inside the ring, his third of the match. A dejected Pandya returns. This is fantastic bowling from Shami. 58 needed off 26 balls.
  • 15.3 Shami switches to 'round the wicket and serves a full toss on the pads. Pollard tucks it to deep square leg for a run.
  • 15.2 Good length ball on middle and off, Krunal stays back and opens the face of his bat to push it towards third man for a run.
  • 15.2 Wide! Shami struggling here with his line. This time it's drifting down the leg side to the left-hander. Krunal tries his best to put bat on ball but misses.
  • 15.2 Two wides! Shami slips a full ball down the leg side, Pollard fails to flick and Rahul also fumbles behind. They cross.
  • The strategic break has been signaled! This match is interestingly poised with Kieron Pollard still in the middle. But the West Indian needs support from the other end. Anything is possible at this venue, so don't go anywhere. Krunal Pandya has come in the middle.
  • 15.1 OUT! Shami strikes immediately to break the dangerous partnership. He dishes out a length ball outside off, Pandya clears his front leg and targets to clear long on but fails to middle his shot properly. Hardik knew that as soon as he hit the ball and turns back in disappointment. Miller makes no mistake in the deep. Shami is pumped up. 63 needed off 29 balls.
  • Mohammed Shami is brought back into the attack. 1/4 in 2 overs from him, so far.
  • 14.6 Terrific delivery. A leg stump yorker, Pollard pushes it back to the bowler. Top over given the situation, only 7 from it. 63 needed off 30 balls. 135/4
  • 14.5 A full toss this time, Pandya fails to make good use of it. He pulls it to deep mid-wicket for just one.
  • 14.4 Good length delivery outside off, it has been sliced over point for a couple of runs by Pandya.
  • 14.3 Movement back into the batsman, Pollard tries to flick but gets an inside edge. It thuds him on the pads and deflects to cover-point for a run.
  • 14.2 On a length and wide outside off again, Hardik drills his drive to sweeper cover for one.
  • 14.1 A length delivery wide outside off, Hardik lofts it over covers for a couple.
  • 13.6 What was that? A delivery bowled with just one hand? Ashwin bringing everything into play... Delivers it with a high-arm action without putting the other hand much to use. He lands it on middle, the length is short and it's pulled to deep backward square leg for a couple. 19 from the over. Ashwin bowls out, 4-0-37-1! 128/4
  • 13.5 SIX! Dead straight! Pollard is teeing off here. Ashwin puts it on a fuller length on middle, the Mumbai skipper once again makes space and launches it over the bowler's head.
  • 13.4 FOUR! Into the Mumbai crowd! Ashwin drops full and wide outside off, a carrom ball, Pollard steps back and thwacks it mightily over wide long on.
  • 13.3 Flatter and quicker delivery on middle, fuller in length at 92 kph, Pandya flicks it through mid-wicket for one.
  • 13.2 FOUR! Ashwin drags his length back and pays the price. It's short and on middle, Hardik shows no mercy and puts it away to the mid-wicket fence via a pull shot.
  • 13.1 Loopy and full on off, probably a carrom ball, Pandya gets forward and pushes it to covers.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin to bowl his last over.
  • 12.6 Back of a length ball on middle, it's slogged to deep mid-wicket for one. 15 from the over, 89 needed off 42 balls. 109/4
  • 12.6 Wide! Viljoen serves this on a length but way wide outside off. Hardik leaves.
  • 12.5 Yet another yorker outside off, Pandya digs it out through covers for a couple of runs.
  • The bowler pulls out at the last moment.
  • 12.4 Yorker outside off, Pollard keeps it out to point and crosses.
  • 12.3 Another mistimed pull shot, this time down to long on for a run.
  • 12.2 Pulls a short ball from the toe end of his bat to mid-wicket.
  • 12.1 FOUR! Bang! Viljoen delivers it short and on middle, Hardik turns inside the crease and plays a thunderous pull shot behind square leg for a boundary.
  • 12.1 Five wides! Viljoen bowls a good length ball down the leg side, Hardik tries to flick but misses. It goes past him and the keeper for a boundary at fine leg. It's given as wides but the replays show that it took Pandya's pads. Really bad luck for the bowler. Hang on, hang on, we all have got that wrong. It actually clipped the leg stump and the noise came due to that. Not for the first time in this season, bails have not come off.
  • Hardik Pandya is the new man in. Also, Hardus Viljoen is back.
  • 11.6 OUT! Kishan is run out! Another blossoming partnership is cut short. Curran delivers it full and around leg. Pollard tries to flick but misses and it goes off his pads to the off side. Kishan rushes out of the crease in search of a run but is sent back. But before he can reach with a dive, Curran has scored a direct hit at the bowler's end. Well short, no need to go even upstairs. 104 needed off 48 balls. 94/4
  • 11.5 SIX! Pollard has exploded! Curran delivers a full ball outside off, it's right in the arc for the West Indian. Pollard flexes his muscles and powers it over the bowler's head for a biggie.
  • 11.4 Serves another full ball, on the pads, Pollard swings but misses.
  • 11.3 FOUR! Curran under immense pressure. He overdoes his length this time. Bowls it full and on leg, Pollard whips it past the diving mid-wicket fielder for a boundary. The crowd is going berserk here.
  • 11.2 SIX! Plundered by Pollard. Brute force. Short in length on middle, nicely sitting up to the Trinidadian, Kieron swivels and rockets his pull shot over square leg.
  • 11.2 Wide! Bowls it wide outside off as it was short too. The umpire gives it a wide as it was outside the tramline.
  • 11.1 Bowls it on a length outside off, Kishan opens the bat face and guides it to third man for a run.
  • Sam Curran is back on.
  • 10.6 SIX! Pollard finishes the over with a biggie. Ashwin bowls it short to the Mumbai skipper who goes deep inside the crease and muscles it over long on for a big hit. Miller tries to catch it with a jump near the fence but travels over him. 76/3
  • 10.5 Ashwin bowls it with a lower-arm action, you can call it a round-arm action too but it's more like the way Jadhav bowls. He spears it full and on off, Kishan drives it down through mid off for a run.
  • 10.4 FOUR! This is a tremendous shot from Ishan Kishan! A tossed up ball outside off, plenty of width on offer this time and Kishan cracks it over extra cover.
  • 10.3 Fires in a full ball on middle, it's pushed back to the bowler. Three dot balls.
  • 10.2 Shorter in length and outside off, Kishan goes back to cut but finds backward point.
  • 10.1 Flighted full ball on off, Ishan is on the front foot as he pushes it to covers.
  • 9.6 Short and outside off, Kishan cuts it through point and takes a run. 65/3
  • 9.5 Lucky for Kishan as he could have easily dragged it on. Viljoen bowls it full on the pads, Kishan goes for the flick but misses as the ball hits his pads and goes up. Kishan in his followthrough of the shot hits the ball which goes behind the stumps to the keeper.
  • 9.5 Bouncer! The batsman ducks in time to let that one go over him. The umpire has signalled a wide.
  • 9.4 Full outside off this time, Kishan goes for the drive but plays down the wrong line.
  • 9.3 Full on the pads, Pollard flicks it to the leg side for a run.
  • 9.2 Loud appeal for a caught behind but clearly no bat there. Hardus bowls it short outside off, Pollard goes for the pull but does not get bat on ball. The ball brushes his shoulder while going through to the keeper. Viljoen goes for the appeal thinking there was some bat on it but replays confirm the same.
  • 9.1 Bowls it short and outside off, Pollard plays it to point.
  • Hardus Viljoen is back on.
  • 8.6 Flighted delivery on off, driven back to the bowler. Ashwin has bowled an excellent over, 4 runs and a wicket from it. 62/3
  • Strategic break. Superb going for Punjab in this run chase. They have removed the Mumbai top order fairly cheaply and are calling the shots at the moment. The home team is in a desperate need of a partnership. Ishan Kishan has joined Kieron Pollard in the middle as the crucial middle phase is about to begin.
  • 8.5 OUT! Magnificent catch in the deep by David Miller. And once more a Mumbai batsman has thrown away a start. Ashwin is running in joy. Quinton de Kock is a big wicket without any shadow of a doubt. A flighted full ball around off, the South African jumps out of the crease to play a lofted shot over mid off but fails to get to the pitch of the ball properly. He still goes on with the shot and lofts it in the deep. Miller moves swiftly to his left from long off and takes a nice sliding catch. The crowd has gone silent. Punjab are on top. 136 needed off 67 balls for Mumbai.

  • 8.2 Fuller on off this time, de Kock gets an inside edge onto the pads.
  • 8.1 Starts with a tossed up ball on the pads, de Kock goes for the sweep and plays it fine. The ball goes in the deep as the batsmen take a couple.
  • 7.6 The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot. They pick up a single. End of a successful first over by Curran, 5 runs and a wicket from it. 58/2
  • 7.5 Shortish and on leg, Pollard tickles it to deep square leg for a run.
  • Kieron Pollard is the new man in.
  • 7.4 OUT! SKY falls! A full delivery on the pads is flicked aerially over square leg by Yadav. He tries to go over the fielder in the deep but Henriques (sub for Gayle) stationed there times his jump well and catches the ball over his head. Curran is elated. 142 needed off 74 balls as yet another Mumbai batsman fails to convert his start.
  • 7.3 Full and on middle, de Kock knocks it down through wide mid on for a run.
  • 7.2 Yadav has driven it through mid on. One run added to the total.
  • 7.1 Starts his spell with a short and wide delivery outside off, de Kock cuts it through point for a run.
  • Sam Curran is into the attack.
  • 6.6 Aerial... but safe! Ashwin bowls a flatter carrom ball this time. Yadav gets forward and punches it uppishly but straight towards the bowler. The ball just falls short of Ashwin, lucky for Yadav that it did not carry. A good and tidy start by Ashwin as he gives just the 3 runs off his first. 53/1
  • 6.5 Bowls it shorter outside off this time as Yadav cuts it straight to the point fielder.
  • 6.4 Tossed up on the pads, de Kock wrists it to square leg and changes strike.
  • 6.3 Flighted on middle, Yadav plays it on the leg side and takes a run.
  • 6.2 Bowls it full on the pads, Quinton flicks it to mid-wicket for a single.
  • 6.1 Starts off with a tossed up ball on off, de Kock plays it back to the bowler.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin to roll his arm over.
  • 5.6 DROPPED BY RAHUL! A short delivery sliding down the leg side, de Kock gloves his attempted pull shot behind and Rahul attempts to take the catch with a dive. He fails to hang on though and parries it towards square leg. They cross. So, both the batsmen have got a life each. Costly? 50 up for Mumbai now. KL Rahul is down in pain as his teammates surround him. The physio is also called but it appears all fine. 50/1
  • 5.5 Bowls it on a length outside off, Yadav cuts it to point and takes a single.
  • 5.4 Full on middle, de Kock works it down the leg side for a single.
  • 5.3 Does the smart work here as follows the four with a single down to third man as Viljoen bowls it on a length outside off.
  • 5.2 FOUR! That's a cracking shot by Yadav. He reads the line early as Hardus bowls it short, Yadav bends down and plays the pull shot with perfection. The ball races through the backward square leg fence.
  • 5.1 Starts off with a short of a length ball outside off, de Kock opens the bat face and gently guides it to third man for a run.
  • Change in bowling. Hardus Viljoen is introduced into the attack. He will be bowling to his fellow South African, Quinton de Kock.
  • 4.6 FOUR! Just uses the pace of the bowler. Width on offer outside off, SKY stays back inside the crease and quietly runs it down fine to the third man fence. 41/1
  • 4.5 Length ball outside off, Suryakumar drives it straight to mid on.
  • 4.4 FOUR! Up and over the bowler! Full in length on off, Yadav takes his front leg forward and chips it over the bowler's head for a boundary.
  • 4.3 Full outside off, Yadav punches it to covers.
  • 4.2 DROPPED BY MILLER! Dear me, he is the last fielder you will associate a dropped catch with. A shortish ball outside off, Suryakumar plays a back foot punch uppishly in the direction of backward point. Miller manning that area jumps a little too early and hence fails to take that catch with one hand. How costly will this prove?
  • 4.1 FOUR! First boundary for Yadav. He hits this length ball outside off by playing a square cut. The timing is so good that it goes past point and beats the third man fielder with perfection.
  • 3.6 A yorker on middle and off, Quinton cannot do much and just digs it out back to the bowler. Top over, 1 run and a wicket from it. 29/1
  • 3.5 Sharp delivery. An inswinger on the shorter side around off, Yadav brings his bat down at the last moment and guides it down to third man for a run.
  • Suryakumar Yadav comes in to bat at Number 3.
  • 3.4 OUT! Nicely worked up wicket. Three dot balls created pressure, the batsman tried to do something different and gets out. Shami bringing all his experience into play. The line he keeps is fairly straight and spears it on a fuller length. Siddhesh shuffles across the stumps to create a different angle with his flick shot, in order to avoid that square leg fielder, but he fails to put the bat on the ball. It goes through and rattles the stumps. A promising start is cut short.
  • 3.3 Three dots in a row. Pressure building. Good bowling from Shami. He is bowling a middle and leg stump line. Shortish and on middle, Lad turns on the leg side but once again finds square leg.
  • 3.2 Once again fails to find the gap. A swinging delivery, full and curling in around off, Siddhesh flicks it across the line but it goes to the fielder in front of square leg.
  • 3.1 Slightly short in length and close to off stump, Lad turns inside the crease with the pull shot but fails to get enough timing. He ends up playing it straight to square leg.
  • 2.6 Bowls it on a length outside off, Lad was ready for it as he drives it uppishly over covers. The ball goes in the deep as Ashwin from covers gives it a chase and stops it just inside the ropes. Three runs taken in the process. 14 runs from Rajpoot's second. 28/0
  • Moises Henriques is on the field in place of Chris Gayle. The West Indian felt a bit unwell while batting and understandably, he has not come out.
  • 2.5 Full on the leg stump line, de Kock punches it to mid on and takes off for the run. Completes it easily in the end.
  • 2.4 FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! Rajpoot over-corrects his line and length there. Short and wide outside off, de Kock walks forward, makes room and slaps it through cover-point.
  • 2.3 FOUR! Shot! Rajpoot delivers it full and around leg, de Kock picks it off his pads and whips it over mid-wicket for a boundary. A good start is the key and Mumbai are getting one here.
  • 2.2 Full on off, de Kock drives it to the cover fielder.
  • 2.1 Bowls it short and on off, de Kock goes on the back foot and pulls it do deep square leg and changes strike.

  • 1.5 Changes line this time as he bowls it on a length outside off, Lad opens the bat face and guides it down to third man for a single.
  • 1.4 Continues bowling on a good length on off, Lad defends it to the off side.
  • 1.3 Another length ball on the pads, Lad goes on the back foot to flick it but gets an inside edge onto his body.
  • 1.2 Length ball on leg, de Kock punches it to mid off and takes a run.
  • 1.1 Starts off with a length ball outside off, de Kock goes for the drive but mistimes it to the cover fielder.
  • Mohammed Shami to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6 Goes full again on middle, Lad pushes it back to the bowler. Two dots to end but an excellent start for Mumbai. 11 from it. 11/0
  • 0.5 Corrects his line and bowls it on the off pole. The batter blocks it out. Sensible batting.
  • 0.4 FOUR! Now a boundary! Once again, Rajpoot is guilty of bowling it on the pads, Lad flicks it over backward square leg and the ball races away to the fence.
  • 0.3 SIX! Wow! A dream start to his Indian T20 League career. A biggie. Yes, it is a freebie but you have to put them away. Short and down the leg side, Lad pulls it over the fine leg fence for a maximum.
  • 0.2 On the shorter side, de Kock pulls it to deep square leg for a run. The chase is underway.
  • 0.1 Starts off with a length delivery around off, de Kock cuts but finds point.
  • We are back for the chase! Quinton de Kock and Siddhesh Lad are the openers. They need to get Mumbai off to a good start. The new ball has been given to Ankit Rajpoot. Here we go...
