23:23(IST)

Just 4 runs from the 16th over. Christian bowls a brilliant over as he mixes up the pace beautifully. Karn and McClenaghan have no clue on how to go about it. MI's score reads 107/7

23:11(IST)

BACK to BACK boundaries for Krunal as he pulls Christian this time into the mid-wicket fence. Shardul could have caught that one, but he came in way too much and misjudged the flight. MI's score reads 98/5

Boundary for Parthiv as Shardul pitches that up and Parthiv goes for the drive. Much-needed boundary for Mumbai as MI's score reads 58/4

22:37(IST)

22:23(IST)

WICKET! That is unlucky. Parthiv hits that straight back at Shardul and the ball touches his finger before hitting the wicket at the non-striker's end. Simmons is short of the crease and has to go for 5. MI's score reads 35/1

22:16(IST)

22:09(IST)

SIXXX! Parthiv hits another big one as the ball hits the square-leg advertising board. That was not too long, but just enough as Unadkat looks on. MI's score reads 15/0

22:07(IST)

MAXIMUM! Parthiv sends Sundar into the square-leg stands. That was on the legs and Parthiv was quick to pounce on that one. MI's score reads 8/0

22:01(IST)

21:25(IST)

Just 5 runs from the 17th over as the batsmen are finding it really tough to hit the ball. The pitch is slow and could get even worse in the second innings. Pune's score reads 114/3 after 17 overs
