Commentator: Nikhil Kalro

00.20 The first super over of the season, another pleasure to watch and bring to you. We'll be back in less than 15 hours for another double-header. See you then.

12.08am Splendid execution. Under a lot of pressure, a lot of frustration after a free-hit, but Bumrah never looked flustered. Mumbai were bailed out by Krunal and Bumrah. Lions fought, fought and scrapped their way in the latter half of their chase. A lot of frustration that Raina bowled four overs for 28 runs, but those overs slowed down the momentum, gave Mumbai the illusion of control with the game drifting along and then they were clutch in the last few overs through Faulkner and Thampi.

Krunal Pandya is the Man of the Match: "I feel I'm an allrounder, to contribute with bat, ball and in the field. The wicket wasn't easy, that you go in and hit big shots straightaway. About making sure we bat till the 20th over. When it was 2 ball, 2 runs, I tried for a big shot, but I had a chat with Malinga that I'll not go for a big shot."

Rohit Sharma, on his birthday: A good birthday present. First time part of the Super Over, something new for us. We got a good start, wicket was always going to get slower. Gujarat stuck to their plans and kept us guessing. Hats off to Krunal to be there, and finish, not finish the game, but hang around. We never had long partnerships going. Previous game doesn't matter too much. We never expected wicket to be so slow. Momentum plays a crucial part in this format. We've got great talent and about playing to our potential."

Raina: Yes, my heart is fine. Very exciting game. Bumrah bowled a very good over. With that reverse swing and accuracy, you can't do much. The wicket was pretty slow and we tried hard. We lost a couple of wickets up front but we bowled well. We came back really strongly, despite losing Tye. Honestly, we didn't put up a good score. All credit to the bowlers for bringing us back. I haven't seen Tye's injury yet."

Bumrah to McCullum, 1 run, he's done it! Bowls another yorker at off stump, McCullum is deep in his crease in anticipation but that is too quick for him to get under. The front foot is out of the way, but the bat hasn't come down quickly enough. It's right off the bottom and straight at long-off

Parthiv and Rohit are in the bowler's ear immediately. He looks calm. ....and Rohit comes in again before he bowls the last ball. It doesn't look like Bumrah is actually absorbing anything, to his credit

Bumrah to Finch, 1 run, low full toss at off stump, Finch sways across the line and is beaten for pace. The bat turns in his hand and he can only bunt it to extra cover

Bumrah to Finch, no run, superb. Superb. This is a fast yorker, full and just outside off. Finch backs away to try and bludgeon this, and is completely beaten

Bumrah to McCullum, 1 bye, and another. Another slower ball dips under McCullum's bat outside off...but Patel fumbles and gives away a bye

Bumrah to McCullum, no run, oh whata ball. A slower ball again, dips on McCullum quickly and slides through from under his attempted heave, just missing off stump

Bumrah to McCullum, 1 wide, Mccullum walks across the stumps, then shimmies back into his stance and has done enough to get Bumrah to wire a high, slower ball, full and wide of the marker outside off

Bumrah to Finch, 1 leg bye, another perfect yorker. This time Finch is inside the line and tries to ramp it over short fine. Gets no bat, cops it on the pad, and takes the run

Bumrah to Finch, 1(no ball) , the perfect yorker but he has overstepped! What a horrible time to do this. He follows Finch down the leg side, nails the yorker and beats him but he's given away a free hit

It looks like Bumrah will bowl. And Finch is ready to come out. Expectedly, McCullum will partner him. Finch taking strike.

Two dot balls for Mumbai, and one wasted ball. Will that be the difference? Faulkner is in coming down to the dugout...without pads on.

Faulkner to Buttler, OUT, Mumbai don't play out their over. He goes full and swings it away from off stump, Buttler swipes across the line, and gets a top edge that goes high in the gully region. Ishan Kishan hangs under it for an eternity at backward point, then follows it and completes a diving catch low in front

JC Buttler

Rohit has come out, Buttler will take strike

Faulkner to Pollard, OUT, and he holes out! Faulkner goes for the yorker and just about misses it. It's a low full toss at leg stumpp. Pollard clears the front leg and launches it towards long-on, but he gets it off the toe. It's lobbed for Finch who takes cleanly

KA Pollard

Faulkner goes over the wicket

Faulkner to Pollard, SIX, not there. Not to Pollard. It's a length ball at middle stump. Once more, no feet, but the reach is enough. Brings out the arc and lifts it over long-on

Faulkner to Pollard, FOUR, offcutter, wide outside off stump. He uses his reach to get to this, without feet, and lifts it off the outside half of the bat to deep extra's right

three men behind square on the off side. Sweeper has moved to deep extra cover

Faulkner to Buttler, 1 run, back of a length at off stump, he backs away and slaps this to sweeper cove

END OF OVER:

  • SL Malinga0 (1b)

Faulkner will bowl the Super Over. Pollard and Buttler are coming out.

So, both teams nominate three batsmen. One bowler. Mumbai will bat first. Lions are chasing again. It's the seventh tie in IPLs. What a game we've had so far.

Pathan to Malinga, OUT, is that out? There is a direct hit. Has Krunal made his ground? No he hasn't. It's a Super Over, the first of the IPL. Jadeja has done this with two direct hits. What fielding. Sensational. A yorker on the pads, Malinga misses a flick. The ball ricochets towards jadeja at point, picks up and throws the stumps down at the batsman's end to find Krunal short despite a dive. Magnificent fielding.

KH Pandya run out 29 (40m 20b 2x4 1x6) SR: 145.00

1 off 1. They can't lose in regulation. What was Irfan doing a month ago? He needs to protect one in a thriller in the IPL now. He has to beat him with a wide yorker? It's all about execution now. Bat on ball almost wins this match. Sweeper cover comes up, around the wicket.

Pathan to KH Pandya, 1 run, full and straight, got some tail back in. I think that is really good batting. Pushed to mid-off for a riskless single.

2 off 2. Mid-off goes back. There is no one at point. Has to be straight, otherwise this game is done. He can't even try to beat him with a wide yorker. McCullum intervenes.

19.4

Pathan to KH Pandya, 2 runs, great work from Krunal. Great work from Roy. Short and wide, slow outside off. Carved through backward point for a couple. There is no point. Roy got around from sweeper cover

Krunal on strike. Will he take the single if he gets it? Can he get a riskless two? These aren't very big boundaries. Krunal needs to hit one gap

19.3
W
Pathan to Bumrah, OUT, what is happening? That's run-out. Jadeja is the man. A slow ball outside off, hit towards point. Jadeja runs in, picks up and throws the stumps down at the bowler's end. Mumbai are nine down. The ball deflected away to the boundary so if Bumrah was in, that would have been four runs. Bumrah is well short.

JJ Bumrah run out 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pathan to KH Pandya, 1 run, shortish delivery, slow on off and middle. Pulled to square leg. Another nothing delivery. In the slot for another big hit

Pathan to KH Pandya, SIX, oh no, you just do not. DO NOT bowl length. Full and straight from Irfan, in the slot. Right in the slot. Krunal nails a lofted drive and straight. Straight for six. Amazing area to hit the ball.

Last over. Krunal is on strike. Who'll bow? It's Irfan.
