IPL 2017: MI vs KXIP - Turning Point - Mohit Sharma's Last Over

Mohit Sharma bowled an excellent last over as Kings XI Punjab snatched victory from the jaws off defeat against Mumbai Indians to keep their hopes of a place in the play-offs alive.

After the initial blows, Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya brought Mumbai back into the match with a scintillating 21-ball 55 run partnership. Karn Sharma too chipped in with runs as Mumbai need just 23 off the last 2 overs.

Mohit Sharma then bowled an excellent last over as he gave away just 7 runs off it. Mumbai needed 16 runs off the final six deliveries — with Pollard and Harbhajan Singh at the crease and this is how the last over was bowled by Mohit Sharma.

1st Ball: Mohit bowls a length ball outside the off-stump and Pollard hit it down the ground to take 2 runs. But replays showed that Pollard didn't touch the line while turning back for the double so only one run counted. Mumbai need 15 off 5.

2nd Ball: Mohit bowls a slower delivery and Pollard hits a huge six on the leg-side. Mumbai need 9 off 4 now.

3rd Ball: Mohit bowls a low full-toss and Pollard hits it down the ground but refuses to take a single. Mumbai need 9 off 3 now.

4th Ball: Mohit bowls a low dipping yorker and Pollard cannot get underneath it. Another dot ball. Mumbai need 9 off 2 now.

5th Ball: Mohit bowls a low dipping yorker outside the off-stump and Pollard fails to hit it again. Mumbai need 9 off 1 now.

6th Ball: Mohit bowls another cracking yorker and Pollard can only hit it for a single. Mumbai win by 7 runs.
