Match 55, Delhi

For the Mumbai Indians, it's all over. A thrilling game, a magnificent spectacle, but ultimately a disaster for Mumbai Indians. They came into today's game knowing a win would seal them qualification, but it wasn't meant to be. Too many wickets lost to leg-spin, and dropped chances meant they couldn't quite get over the line. Spare a thought for Ben Cutting, who really did his best to win the game himself at the death there. As for Delhi Daredevils, the highlight of the day was definitely the leg-spin duo of Amit Mishra and Sandeep Lamichhane, who really turned the ball, and confused most batsman as to which way the ball was spinning. The real winners from all of this are the Rajasthan Royals who look like they might just sneak into that fourth position despite being at the bottom of the ladder for so long.

There's still a chance for King's XI Punjab to make it but they will have to beat CSK by a big, big margin, and with the wickets of KL Rahul, Gayle and Finch already down, that is looking increasing unlikely. But you never know! Make sure you join that game right now, to find out who will make the top four! It's toodles from me - it's been a pleasure as always.

MOTM: Amit Mishra

Wicket! Bumrah holes out to long on, it's DD who come out on top, and that is the end of that! What a contest we have had. Mumbai Indians fall at the last hurdle. Joy for DD and also for Rajasthan Royals. 

19.3 H Patel to J Bumrah, WICKET!!! J Bumrah is out c Trent Boult b Harshal Patel, 122.42 km/h full length outside off stump.

Wicket! That could well be that! It's the slow wider one from Harshal. It's in the slot but Cutting can't hold hold of it fully and it sails into the hands of Maxwell at deep mid-wicket! Cutting has got to go and now it's over to Bumrah!

19.2 H Patel to B Cutting, WICKET!!! B Cutting is out c Glenn Maxwell b Harshal Patel, 121.75 km/h short length outside off stump.

Six! Pressure, pressure on! Bouncer and hooked for SIX by Cutting! Holy moley. What's coming next?

19.1 H Patel to B Cutting, SIX, 122.54 km/h short length going down leg.

Bumrah is in at 10. But it's all down to Cutting you would think. 18 needed. Patel takes over from Plunkett

End of Over 19 - 5 runs, 1 wicket MI 157/8
Ben Cutting*31* (18b 2x4 2x6)

Wicket! Trent Boult you ripper! Off stump goes flying after Markande cannot lay a bat on the yorker. What an over!

18.6 T Boult to M Markande, WICKET!!! M Markande is out b Trent Boult, 137.02 km/h full toss on off stump.

Wide yorker and Cutting can only slap it down to deep backward point. Boult is earning his wage right here, right now

18.5 T Boult to B Cutting, one run, 134.46 km/h full toss outside off stump.
18.4 T Boult to B Cutting, two runs, 135.95 km/h full toss outside off stump.

Close! Should be a run out but Cutting survives! Extra cover is really close as Cutting tries to get back on strike but the throw is wild! Any throw over the top of the stumps to Rishabh Pant would have resulted in the big wicket!

18.3 T Boult to M Markande, one run, 138.22 km/h full length going down leg.

Round the wicket and through to the keeper! Boult is turning it on here 

18.2 T Boult to M Markande, no run, 134.03 km/h short length on middle stump.

Boult gets his yorker in first time round. Class bowling and now it's over to Markande 

18.1 T Boult to B Cutting, one run, 140.42 km/h full toss outside off stump.

Down to third man but Cutting turns down the single to keep the strike, and who can blame him!? 23 needed from 12 balls now. Who's got any fingernails left?

End of Over 18 - 15 runs MI 152/7

17.6 L Plunkett to M Markande, no run, 134.34 km/h short length on middle stump.

Plunkett nails the yorker this time. Just one down the ground 

17.5 L Plunkett to B Cutting, one run, 130.75 km/h full toss just outside off stump.

Dot ball! Precious, precious dot ball

17.4 L Plunkett to B Cutting, no run, 122.72 km/h short length just outside off stump.

Four! Slightly fuller, but not a yorker and Cutting is at the driving range! Smacked flat and it's a one-bounce four 

17.3 L Plunkett to B Cutting, FOUR, 125.27 km/h full length just outside off stump.

Six! Cutting fancies this! Another slot ball from Plunkett and it's smacked down the ground!

17.2 L Plunkett to B Cutting, SIX, 131.94 km/h full length just outside off stump.

Four! Length and swung away past short fine leg! That's not the place to bowl

17.1 L Plunkett to B Cutting, FOUR, 130.54 km/h short length on leg stump.

Boult finishes with a full toss that he really got away with! 11 off the over. Cutting keeps the strike. It only takes one really big over from here. Plunkett to bowl the 18th

End of Over 17 - 11 runs MI 137/7

16.6 T Boult to B Cutting, one run, 134.26 km/h full toss on leg stump.

Six! Cutting is keeping the game alive! Pace off and thumped over long on for a big one! That's what MI need!

16.5 T Boult to B Cutting, SIX, 116.41 km/h full length outside off stump.

Dropped! Flapped out to deep square leg where the fielder running in can't quite hang on

16.4 T Boult to B Cutting, two runs.
16.3 T Boult to B Cutting, no run, 113.35 km/h short length outside off stump.
16.2 T Boult to M Markande, 1 leg bye.
16.1 T Boult to B Cutting, one run, 116.89 km/h full length just outside off stump.

This has been an outstanding display of leg spin and googly bowling from Lamichhane and Mishra. Very few batters have picked their variations. 6 wickets between them tells the story
