Scorer: Chandan Duorah | Commentator: Varun Shetty

12:03am Whew. We have witnessed a classic today. Fitting, 20 years after the famous Desert Storm match. But also not quite, if you're the man who was at the centre of that. A day to forget for Mumbai Indians. That was one truly surreal game of cricket, but don't go away anywhere just yet. We have Liverpool v AS Roma in the Champions League semi-finals coming your way in just a bit. Jump over to ESPN.in for more. We'll see you tomorrow!

Rashid Khan: First of all thanks to mighty Allah for such a performance after a few bad games. It was needed for me. I learnt a lot of things and had a good chat with the coaching staff - Moody, Murali, Laxman - and I just relaxed and enjoyed myself. And it brought me success. Murali told that whatever happens you have to be relaxed and be calm and do the basics right. This game is all about enjoyment. Credit to how the management have kept us whether we win or lose.

Rashid Khan is the Man of the Match.

Williamson: Clearly a touch surface. Without a doubt we were expecting a lot more from ourselves with the bat. Set out that if we had 140, we'd have enough runs. Turns out 120 was enough. It is good fun, T20, so much is happening so quickly. All together it was a fantastic second half for us. Once again, we haven't been able to put a collective performance together. There is depth in our squad which is important. A number of injuries, a change in balance. But the best part of it was how the guys were engaged in the second half.

S Kaul: Feeling great to do this when your teams needs it, in the crisis team. My domestic team went really well and I got into the India A team and the India team as well and it feels good when you get to that level. Bhuvi is there, before that Ashish Nehra was there and I learn a lot from them because they were champs in the IPL and international cricket as well. It really helped me.

Rohit Sharma: Got ourselves to blame. 118 on any wicket, we should have been able to get that. We just weren't there. Very happy with how the bowlers bowled. Our batters let us down again. There are so many things I want to talk about, but I don't want to pinpoint. We won't drop our heads. We needed to show some intent but we didn't. It was always going to be tough, the shot-making wasn't going to be easy, but they kept us guessing all the time. A few of us played bad shots including myself.


Sagar: "I was scratching my head after the auction - why so many pacers? The wise men (Moody and Lax) obviously planned for all eventualities.. and the investment paid off with Bhuvi out today and Billy out for season..."

Kabir: "Today's setback may be very hard to digest for MI, highly unlikely they would be able to get up from here- is it the knockout punch- very likely"

Snehil: "In the mid-innings interview, Tom Moody had said that SRH were about 30 runs short. Turns out they were 30 ahead."

sathish2888: "Not to forget Dhawan's stunning catches.. They were very crucial.."

Althaf: "How good Yusuf Pathan innings now.... it worths more than what it seemed at the half way mark. WELL PLAYED YUSUF"

11:46pm This is only the third time 20 wickets have fallen in an IPL game. Neither team made it to 19 overs. It's all bizzare, really. It wasn't as bad a pitch as all these numbers suggest. Just top-notch bowling and on this evening, the best bowling attack of the IPL have shown why. No Stanlake, No Bhuvneshwar. But they've done it. The lowest score they've ever defended and the lowest in IPL games in India.

Basil Thampi to Mustafizur Rahman, OUT, is that it? Yes it is! Deepak Hooda not in the XI today, but he has the opportunity to be on the field for a very, very famous moment. Gets under it at midwicket and completes a catch. Mustafiz looks to pull and gets it off the high part of the bat. A slice - no danger. Mumbai's innings was no danger, to be fair. A feeble end but a fitting one
