Commentary

So, what can I say to sum this game up. It was sheer, convoluted drama and at the end of it all. defending champions Mumbai Indians have stormed into the playoffs. We'll have the match report in a few, we'll have quotes, we've got the Huddle so don't go anywhere. Thank you for your comments tonight and I hope you've all enjoyed the cricket. This is Alagappan Muthu, saying Phew....

Corey Anderson is the Man of the Match "We knew what we needed. We let them get too many runs. I'm glad I could do something to bring them to their feet. Rayudu came in and smashed it and that last ball from tare as well. It was about staying still and backing yourself. The thing is when you complicate things you get in trouble. People started realising we had a chance here and I wanted to be out there in the end. It doesn't get any better than this. The Mumbai crowd are unbelievable. Now I do feel at home here"

"It will take a little while to get my hearbeat down", says Rohit Sharma. "Nothing is impossible. The performance, doesn;t come every day. This is for th epeople of Mumbai. It was a fantastic victory. Anderson was unbelievable. Rayudu played a little cameo there and hats off to Tare. We knew whatever target we see in front of us, we gotta go and chase it. There was no pressure on us and we knew we had hit our stride quickly. We were in a similar situation in the Champions League, so we had the belief. And only brighter things are yet to come"

Jignesh: "As an MI fan I just want to say: #$@*#$@*#$@*#%$@*#$@*%"

"Fantastic. Coming out of Dubai no one thought it was possible. Even at half-time we knew it was going to be difficult. Corey coming into this game was amazing. Ambati as well. We thought it was working against us. But we have a nver say die and soon as we won a couple of games in a row, words can't describe that," says Kieron Pollard, "You can see the emotion. We worked hard, we stuck together and we knew anything was possible"

LK: "Poor Faulkner!! I think Ishant must be enjoying more than MI fans are enjoying at this moment;)"

"I've played a fair bit of cricket but I've never been involved with something like this," says Michael Hussey, "We're through to the playoffs. Wasn't sure if we could do this but this game continues to bemuse everyone"

DisappointedRRF: "Let this be the lesson for the rest of the teams.. you are not qualified till you are qualified!"

The celebrations are never-ending. This has been a match of epic proportions. Getting 190 in 14.3 was an improbable ask. But Corey Anderson, after flopping all season, has produced one of the knocks of the season and Ambati Rayudu and Aditya Tare have played amazing cameos. Dravid throws his cap off in disgust after that poor ball. He's had to watch some pretty poor bowling in the death, Shane Watson leaked 18 runs the 12th over. James Faulkner bowled two generous full tosses on leg stump when Mumbai needed big hits. They missed the easiest run-out opportunity. I'm reeling for breath here!

Faulkner to Tare, SIX runs, it's six, Mumbai have qualified! This was a full toss on leg stump and Tare has launched it over square leg. Tare is beside himself, he pulls his shirt over his head and is being manhandled by his team-mares. Mumbai have exploded all over the Wankhede. Sachin gives big hugs to Anderson and Tare.

Rohit is smiling away. A message comes out to Aditya Tare, who will be on strike. Kulkarni comes in to talk with Watson. The umpires as them to get ready for the ball

There is a giant conference between the umpires and the Royals players. It seems they need a boundary off this delivery to win the game and seal a playoff spot

14.3
W
Faulkner to Rayudu, 1 run, OUT, it's a ridiculous comedy of error. Rayudu is on his knees on the floor! This was back of a length but a little too quick for him as he went for a cut. Gets struck high on the bat and goes only as far as short cover. They set off for the single and the fielder runs in and underarms a throw to try and get him out but misses. They go for the second and the throw from midwicket finds Rayudu short

2 off 1 fior Mumbai to qualify

14.2

Faulkner to Rayudu, SIX runs, it's a full toss on leg stump! That's just about the perfect gift and Rayudu has launched it over the long leg boundary. What a hit! What a collapse under pressure for Faulkner!

8 off 2 Long-on and deep square leg in place. Deep cover as well.

14.1

Faulkner to Anderson, 1 run, shortish and outside off, he wants to keep out of Anderson's swing. Gets a thick edge to deep third man. Only a single

9 off 3. Watson, Hodge and Faulkner have a mini conference. Looks like Faulkner will be bowling.

Raghu Ifmr: "And that kids, is how RR claimed the biggest chokers tag from SA.." It's not over just yet...

Tambe to Anderson, FOUR runs, he's bisected long-on and midwicket! Who says he struggles against spin! That slog sweep is his safety net and this is a length ball that scurries away. This is awesome power
