Match 37, Mumbai

The Mumbai Indians dream stays alive! It was an excellent defence of what was only a par total on that wicket. While the batting or Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav set the tone with the bat, it was the excellence of Hardik Pandya, Mitch McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah with the ball that won the game for the Mumbai Indians. As for KKR, they couldn't quite get the seamers away thanks to some excellent short pitched bowling. Both teams are now still in the hunt and fighting for the top four places! Make sure you head across to the second game of our Super Sunday which is now underway in Indore! Enjoy! 

MoM: Hardik Pandya

19.6 K Pandya to D Karthik, one run, 97.51 km/h good length just outside off stump.

Dot ball! Smashed to the sweeper and no run taken!

19.5 K Pandya to D Karthik, no run, 104.14 km/h short length going down leg.

Four! Slashed over point but it's not a six! Krunal is smiling here!

19.4 K Pandya to D Karthik, FOUR, 112.42 km/h full toss outside off stump.

Review! Dot ball as DK is hit on the pad, and Krunal wants the review! It's surely going down the leg side, but we will have a look anyway. Ball tracking confirms it's missing so it's NOT OUT!

19.3 K Pandya to D Karthik, no run, 91.05 km/h short length going down leg.

Wicket! Narine is caught at cover! But did DK cross? That's excellent from Krunal but even better from DK who did cross while that was in the air!

19.2 K Pandya to S Narine, WICKET!!! S Narine is out c Rohit Sharma b Krunal Pandya, 93.11 km/h short length outside off stump.

Four! Full bunger and whacked down the ground by Narine!

19.1 K Pandya to S Narine, FOUR, 108.01 km/h full toss outside off stump.

23 needed. The left-arm spin of Krunal to decide it...

End of Over 19 - 14 runs KKR 159/5
Dinesh Karthik31* (22b 4x4 1x6)
Sunil Narine*1* (2b)

Dropped! Four! JP Duminy what on earth have you done? This is clubbed straight out to JP at deep square and he overran it slightly and its burst through his hands and it's gone for four! Huge moment 

18.6 J Bumrah to D Karthik, FOUR, 144.5 km/h full toss going down leg.

Four! Yorker missed and down the ground for four! DK keeps the dream alive with that boundary. Great shot 

18.5 J Bumrah to D Karthik, FOUR, 142.79 km/h full length on middle stump.

Dot ball again! The bouncer from Jasprit and DK can't get any willow on it!

18.4 J Bumrah to D Karthik, no run, 138.0 km/h short length on off stump.

Karthik cloths it and turns down the single! That is quite a call with just nine balls to go! 

18.3 J Bumrah to D Karthik, no run, 146.41 km/h full toss on middle stump.

Six! Just what KKR needed! Dk gets a full toss that he smashes over mid-wicket! The fielder jumps but can't lay a hand to it! 

18.2 J Bumrah to D Karthik, SIX, 144.08 km/h full toss on middle stump.

Full and on the toes, and DK can't make contact! Dot ball crucial at this stage 

18.1 J Bumrah to D Karthik, no run, 143.95 km/h full toss going down leg.

DK finishes the over with a single to keep the strike. Hardik can do no more with ball or bat. But maybe he still has a role in the field? Bumrah, Rohit's trump card, is going to bowl the 19th. But who will take the 20th? Cutting? Or spin? How many will be left?

End of Over 18 - 6 runs KKR 145/5

17.6 H Pandya to D Karthik, one run, 117.85 km/h short length outside off stump.

Slower ball and Karthik makes no good contact. The ball rolls back towards the keeper. Dot ball!

17.5 H Pandya to D Karthik, no run, 116.02 km/h good length outside off stump.

Four! That's why! DK isn't giving up and that's thrashed through backward point off the back foot!

17.4 H Pandya to D Karthik, FOUR, 120.61 km/h short length outside off stump.

Dot ball nice! DK blocks for a reason unknown to me and Hardik is gold dust right now 

17.3 H Pandya to D Karthik, no run, 137.3 km/h good length just outside off stump.

The RRR up to 15.75 now...

17.2 H Pandya to S Narine, one run, 138.66 km/h full length just outside off stump.
17.1 H Pandya to S Narine, no run, 114.56 km/h full length outside off stump.

Sunil Narine*0* (0b)

Four! And another! Leg byes but who really cares! Poor ball and that's more like it for KKR

16.6 J Bumrah to D Karthik, 4 leg byes.

Four! Wide and DK slices over third man for four bits!

16.5 J Bumrah to D Karthik, FOUR, 119.69 km/h good length outside off stump.

Wicket! What a catch. What a wicket for MI! Bumrah sticks to the back of a length plan and Russell looking for a maximum, sends the ball high into the sky towards the vacant fine leg region. But is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's a leaping Krunal Pandya who dives running back and takes a blinder! Huge moment

16.4 J Bumrah to A Russell, WICKET!!! A Russell is out c Krunal Pandya b Jasprit Bumrah, 139.18 km/h short length going down leg.
