18.7Negi to Pandya

1
That's it! Mumbai have won it and Hardik Pandya has finished it in the 19th over. Full toss on off, Hardik flat-bats it to long on and takes a single. Mumbai win by 5 wickets.

18.6Negi to Pandya

WD
WIDE! Pressure gets to Negi and he bowls it wide outside the tramline. Wide signalled.

18.5Negi to Pandya

6
SIX! Only a couple required now. This is ruthless from Hardik. Floated on off, Hardik smokes it over the mid-wicket fence for a maximum.

18.4Negi to Pandya

4
FOUR! This might just be the last over. Flighted on off, Hardik slog sweeps it over mid-wicket for a boundary.

18.3Negi to Pandya

4
FOUR! Crunched! Flatter outside off, Hardik flat bats it through covers for a boundary. Only 12 required off 9 balls now.

18.2Negi to Pandya

6
SIX! Up, up and away! How much power does he generate through that bottom hand? Outside off, Hardik goes hard and swings cleanly through the line. High and handsome over long on.

18.1Negi to Pandya

0
Excellent bowling. Short and spinning away from the batsman. Hardik looks to pull it but misses.

17.8Siraj to Pandya

1
Outside off, Pandya punches it towards long on and strolls for a single. Pollard wants the second but Hardik is not interested. 150 up for Mumbai. 22 needed in the final 2.

17.7Siraj to Pandya

WD
WIDE. Hardik walks across and Siraj bowls it well outside off. It is outside the tramline and signalled a wide.

17.6Siraj to Pandya

W
OUT! Siraj gets his first of the match and just what a time to get it! Good length delivery on middle. Siraj takes the pace off the ball. Krunal looks to flick it over mid-wicket but chips it towards cow corner. Substitute Milind Kumar there comes running in and takes a very good catch. Will that help Bangalore or Mumbai? Krunal's wicket will not hurt Mumbai much...

17.5Siraj to Pandya

1
Good length ball around off, Hardik flat bats it to long off and takes a single.

17.4Siraj to Pandya

WD
WIDE. This one is wided. Full and well outside off, let through again.

17.3Siraj to Pandya

0
Full and wide outside off, comes in late, grazing the wide line outside off, left alone. Lucky, is the bowler, that it is not wided.

17.2Siraj to Pandya

4
FOUR! Easy peasy for Hardik. A short ball, outside off, Hardik smashes it over the bowler. One bounce and into the fence.

17.1Siraj to Pandya

1
MISFIELD FROM KOHLI! And he is furious with himself. Full and outside off, Krunal punches it towards mid off and takes Kohli on. The skipper is ready to pick up and throw but fumbles at the last moment. Kicks the ball away in disgust.

16.6Saini to Pandya

4
DROPPED AND FOUR! Has Southee dropped the match here? Full length ball outside off, Hardik looks to heave it over mid off. He mistimes it and the ball goes high in the air. Tim Southee runs behind and looks to catch it with a dive. He gets his hand to it but cannot hold onto it. The ball then goes on the ropes.

16.5Saini to Pandya

1
Good length ball outside off, Krunal punches it on the off side for a single.

16.4Saini to Pandya

16.2Saini to Pandya

0
Back of length ball outside off, Hardik looks to hit it over the bowler but misses.

16.1Saini to Pandya

4
FOUR! Not the way Saini would have liked to start the over. But definitely the way Mumbai wanted to start. Back of a length ball outside off, Hardik slaps it away over point for a boundary. The umpire goes upstairs to see whether the ball bounced before or on the ropes. Replays show that it was just inside the rope and the umpire signals it as a boundary.

15.6Chahal to Pandya

1
Short again from Chahal, Hardik pulls it away and gets off the mark. Chahal finishes with the figures of 4-0-27-2. He is once again amongst the wickets.

15.5Chahal to Pandya

1
Tossed up on middle, Krunal sweeps it away for a single.

15.4Chahal to Pandya

0
Short outsie off, Krunal Pandya looks to cut but misses.

15.3Chahal to Yadav

W
OUT! Suryakumar Yadav holes out. Chahal with the breakthrough. Bangalore needed wicket and they have got it. They have not given Mumbai easy runs and the pressure has got to Suryakumar Yadav. Flighted delivery on off, Suryakumar Yadav tries to take the charge and go downtown. He gets a lot of height on it but it goes wide of long off. Navdeep Saini there settles under it and takes a very good catch in front of the ropes. 43 needed off 27 deliveries now.

15.2Chahal to Yadav

2
Short again on leg, Suryakumar Yadav gets on his back foot and lofts it wide of deep mid-wicket. Virat Kohli steams to the ball but cannot stop the second.

15.1Chahal to Yadav

0
Shorter on leg, Surykumar Yadav taps it back to the bowler.

14.7Negi to Yadav

1
Full and around off, pushed down to long on for one more.

14.6Negi to Pandya

1

14.5Negi to Pandya

14.4Negi to Pandya

14.3Negi to Yadav

1
The batsman works it down the leg side. They pick up a single.

14.2Negi to Yadav

4
FOUR! Poor bowling. A long hop, outside off, Surya goes back and cuts it behind point for a boundary!

14.1Negi to Yadav

0
That massive turn! Too good. Short ball, around off, grips the surface, Yadav looks to pull but the ball spins away a mile and beats the bat.

13.6Ali to Pandya

0
Tossed up on off, Pandya hits it straight to mid off. Dot to finish off the over. Just 3 off Moeen's last. He finishes off with the figures of 4-0-18-2. Brilliant spell from Moeen.

13.5Ali to Pandya

0
On off and middle, Krunal blocks it off his front foot.

13.4Ali to Pandya

0
Beautiful ball! Flighted outside off, the ball spins just a bit after pitching. Pandya looks to push it on the off side but it goes just past his outside edge. Parthiv goes up in appeal and so does the bowler. The umpire is not interested though. Virat Kohli, Moeen Ali and Parthiv Patel have a brief discussion about the review. They decide to go against it. It was a good decision not to take it upstairs as Snicko later on shows that the ball did not hit the bat. The bat just hit the pads.

13.3Ali to Yadav

1
Shorter around off, Suryakumar Yadav runs it down to third man for a single.

13.2Ali to Pandya

1
Floated on middle, Krunal comes down the track and uppishly drives it wide of diving Moeen Ali towards long off for a single.

13.1Ali to Yadav

1
Shorter on off, Suryakumar Yadav milks it to long on for a single.

12.6Chahal to Pandya

12.5Chahal to Pandya

0
Flighted on middle, Krunal comes down the track and blocks it.

12.4Chahal to Yadav

1
Tossed up on off, Suryakumar Yadav lofts it over the bowlers head. He does not time it well but times it enough to send it over the bowler's head for a single.

12.3Chahal to Yadav

0
Tossed up on middle and leg, Suryakumar Yadav looks to defend it but it goes towards backward point off the leading edge.

12.2Chahal to Yadav

4
FOUR! Excellently played. Suryakumar Yadav knows where exactly the fielder are. It is a tossed up ball on middle and off, Suryakumar Yadav gets on one knee and sweeps it behind square for a boundary.
