FIFTY! Rohit Sharma brings up his half-century off 34 balls. Mumbai Indians need 7 off 6 balls. Who will bowl the last over?


SIX! Rohit connects this well and launches it towards deep square leg. What a shot from the captain. ROHIT-MAN. MI need 10 off 9 balls


Hardik Pandya smashes Sreenath Aravind towards sweeper cover. He will get a single.


SIX! Hardik spoils Aniket's over with a beautiful SIX. He goes on the backfoot and slaps it away towards square leg. MI need 18 off 12 balls.


A superb bouncer from Aniket. Hardik wanted to play this but changed his mood at the last moment.



Shane Watson gets rid of Karn Sharma for 9.

MI 130/5, need 33 off 21 balls

FOUR! Rohit plays this towards deep backward point for a boundary. 


Aniket Choudhary is back into the attack. Excellent over so far from him. Just 1 run of his first three deliveries.


Krunal Pandya is walking off the field. He is hurt. Karn Sharma joins Rohit in the middle.


WICKET! Chahal gets Pollard. The batsman comes down the track and looks to flick it. But the bat turns and the ball goes straight to Head at deep mid-wicket. MI's score reads 98/4


Boundary for Pollard as he spoils a good over from Chahal. Comes down the track and hits that past wide long-on. MI's score reads 96/3


Two quick runs here for Pollard as he flicks Negi towards the square-leg region. MI's score reads 89/3


Now Pollard flicks Milne to the fine-leg boundary. That has been a very expensive over from Milne again. He has been leaking runs today. MI's score reads 86/3 after 11 overs


Rohit times that cut off Milne to perfection. Vintage Rohit on show here as the ball speeds to the boundary. MI's score reads 79/3


Mumbai Indian's score reads 74/3 after 10 overs. They need 89 from 10 overs with 7 wickets in the bag. Rohit and Pollard at the crease


Kieron Pollard joins skipper Rohit in the middle and the fans are expecting some fireworks here with Pollard at the crease. MI's score reads 72/3


WICKET! Negi has another one here. And this time it is Rana who is caught beautifully in the deep mid-wicket boundary by Travis Head who throws the ball up and returns to the field of play to complete the catch. Rana goes for 27 and MI's score reads 70/3


Rohit spoils the good over from Watson as he hits a boundary off the last ball. That was a vintage Rohit shot as MI pick 8 runs from the over. MI's score reads 70/2 after 9 overs.


WICKET! Dangerous Buttler is back in the hut. Negi picks the wicket as Head completes the catch. Kohli is elated as Buttler goes for 33. MI's score reads 61/2


Good over from Watson after the strategic time-out. Just 3 runs from the over as Mumbai's score reads 58/1 after 7 overs


Buttler ends Chahal's over with a huge six into the mid-wicket stands. That was high and handsome. Mumbai Indians' score reads 55/1 after 6 overs


Now Buttler joins the fun. Buttler hits that over the top and that is one bounce into the sightscreen. Great shot as MI's score reads 47/1 after 5 overs
