100 up for MI & with that De Kock gets to his fifty as well off 34 balls

Just clips the off-stump and Surya goes for 16 as Dhawal Kulkarni strikes. Kieron Pollard is in. MI 117/2

Oh my lord! Pollard departs as well!

This is insane such-a-turnaround for Rajasthan Royals as Pollard top edges to Gopal off Jofra Archer for 6. Hardik Pandya comes in. MI 136/3

A stunner catch ends the De Kock’s knock off Jofra Archer slower ball as De Kock mishits to mid-off where Jos Buttler takes a Brilliant brilliant catch and it’s silence here at the Wankhede stadium. De Kock goes for a very well made 81. Ishan Kishan is in. MI 163/4

___________________________________________________________________________

RR needs 188 runs to win off 120 balls

Jos Buttler & Ajinkya Rahane in for RR

Skipper Ajinkya Rahane is firing everything he has in his kitty as Buttler is playing a second fiddle here for RR.

50 comes up for RR in quick session at just 4.1 overs as both of them are playing so well. MI needs wickets very badly at the moment.

Krunal Pandya removes Rahane as he goes for the slog sweep but no power in the shot and he has played a good here as he goes for 37. Sanju Samson is in. RR 60/1

100 comes up for RR after 10 overs and fifty comes for Jos Buttler as well. How on earth you bowl him when he’s in such a tremendous form!

Still RR needs 88 off last 60 balls

6,4,4,4,4,6

No are you kidding me! Joseph Alzarri the last match winner is dispatched for 28 runs by Jos Buttler. It’s a de-ja-vu for Rajasthan Royals.

Finally Rahul Chahar gets Buttler!

As he goes for the big shot didn’t timed it well coz of the wide off stump delivery and extra-ordinarily Buttler show is over as he goes for 89. Steve Smith comes in. RR 147/2

RR Still needs 41 runs off just 40 balls

Bumrah gets Sanju Samson! Is there another twist in the tale for MI? As bumrah gets him out LBW. Sanju refers it and umpires call it is which means he has to go for 31. RR 170/3

Ahhh Krunal strikes back! As Rahul Tripathi slog sweeps it to Hardik Pandya.

Yeah it’s Pandya square who gets the man! Rahul goes for 1. RR 171/4

Still RR needs 17 runs off 17 balls

It’s a Krunal day!

Legitimately bowls a quicker ball and new man clearly misses it and stump gets shattered. Livingstone goes for 1. RR 174/5

Drama drama and a lot of drama!

14 runs required off 12 balls

Bumrah to bowl the pen-ultimate over

1st ball and Steve Smith goes for 12 as he pokes a fourth stump ball and edges it to the keeper. RR 174/6

6 runs required off 6 balls

Hardik Pandya to bowl the ultimate over. We have seen him defending his national team on the last over. Can he do that today? That’s the question here. Let’s see.

Anything can happen here!

In the airrrrrrrr and dropped. It was a difficult chance but the mid-off fielder didn’t get there in time as the batsman scrambles back for the second

Shreyas Gopal hits a 4 and that’s it for Rajasthan Royals as they win by 4 wickets
