6:14 PM IST Earlier in the game, we saw a dominating batting performance by some of the Mumbai batters which built the foundation for the rest of the team. It started with Rohit Sharma attacking from the get-go. He was supported by Suryakumar Yadav for a major part of the innings and they both got a lot of runs on the board. Tilak Varma picked up the pace as well and dealt a lot of lusty blows. The others played small cameos to take their team to a respectable total of 192. For Punjab, Harshal Patel was the star at the death as he scalped 3 wickets. Kagiso Rabada got 1 while Sam Curran added 2 wickets to his tally.
6:13 PM IST Mumbai was given a shaky start by Gerald Coetzee as he went for a lot of runs off the first few deliveries. However, he bounced back with the wicket of Prabhsimran Singh in the same over and gave the opening breakthrough. Jasprit Bumrah who was seen with the new ball for the first time this season, showcased his class as he got rid of Rilee Rossouw with a sharp toe crusher. He followed it up with the wicket of Sam Curran as well in the same over. Coetzee struck next with the wicket of Liam Livingstone with a well-directed ball. Shreyas Gopal got rid of Harpreet Singh soon after the Powerplay with a brilliant catch off his own bowling. Madhwal trapped Jitesh Sharma right in front of the stumps and broke a crucial partnership. Then it was all about Punjab for a brief period until Bumrah was brought back and he sent back Shashank Singh to the dugout. Right when Mumbai was staring at defeat, Gerald came in and got the wicket of the dangerous-looking Ashutosh Sharma. Hardik Pandya got his first wicket of the night in the penultimate over as he got rid of Harpreet Brar. In the end, it was a good throw by Mohammad Nabi which made sure that Kagiso Rabada couldn't get to his crease and that sealed the game in their favor. However, they still have a lot to look upon, especially in the bowling department. For now, they take those two points home and climb up the table.
6:11 PM IST Punjab started off with a couple of boundaries but was dealt heavy blows soon after. Prabhsimran Singh departed for a golden duck in the very first over. Next, it was time for Rilee Rossouw and Sam Curran to walk back dejected, in the very next over. Liam Livingstone too couldn’t establish himself as he too was dismissed in the third over of the chase. This put a hold on the runs getting added to the board. Harpreet Singh was just about getting settled when he chipped one straight back to the bowler. Inside 7 overs, Punjab were reduced to half their batting power. Jitesh Sharma was looking good when he got trapped off a full toss. After that, a good partnership formed between Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma bringing them back in the game. However, Shashank Singh couldn’t carry his innings ahead. Ashutosh Sharma took the attack to the opponents and pulled his team back into the game. He scored a half-century, his first in the league in just 23 balls. From 77/6, Ashutosh Sharma managed to get his team to 168/8 before walking back to the dugout. Brar too couldn’t stay till the end but he played a huge role in the chase. Kagiso Rabada was run out in the final over trying to get back on strike and it sealed the deal for Mumbai. Punjab have a lot to be proud of especially the two youngsters Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma who almost earned them a win.
6:09 PM IST A NAIL BITER! Yes, we have just witnessed another exciting match in the Indian T20 League. It was full of twists which started off in favor of Mumbai, then for a brief period it was Punjab who looked to be in charge. Towards the end, it was the visitors who took charge of the game back and managed to get a well-deserved win. Punjab were bowled out for 183 and just 10 runs short of the target.
6:07 PM IST Is that out? Kagiso Rabada wanted a couple there but a sharp throw has brought the final decision to the third umpire. Replays show that Rabada is inches short of the crease and that is game over.
