11.32pm That was a very important win for Mumbai. They absolutely needed to win to keep their hopes alive, and they aced a tough chase to keep the comfortable chasing trend at this ground going.
Was that score ever going to be enough on this ground? Kings XI fought right through to give themselves a chance, but their batting was just not good enough tonight. Another spirited fight from Kings XI.
But it was Mumbai's long batting order that was too good, despite some hiccups. Suryakumar Yadav's impressive run continued. And Rohit, Hardik and Krunal played very important hands to get Mumbai across.
Suryakumar Yadav is the Man of the Match: "Enjoying my new role of opening. Trying to be consistent, trying to give good starts so that the finishers aren't burdened. I'm not thinking too much, trying to be simple."
Rohit Sharma: "We're still alive, good performance tonight. We wanted everyone to come together and put a collective effort. We understand the threat Kings XI bring with their bat, to restrict them was a great effort. The way we went about our chase, we needed some momentum, Hardik could get that by playing his game, which is why I held myself back. I know what shot-making is required at the end."
R Ashwin: "The wicket was sticky, we went well. Not got enough runs at the end. Fought well. The week off rejuvenated the boys. This tournament is not easy. Trying to play the brand of cricket we want to play."
Krunal Pandya: "When I'm playing, he feels pressure outside. When he's playing, I feel pressure outside. The brotherly bond is there. The last game, I was upset about not getting the team through. It was simple, anything is chaseable at this ground. You're a bit more confident with these short boundaries."
3 off 7.

Mo Shine: "This is Mumbai's match to lose now with the batting power that they have. "
36 off 18. Kings XI need a wicket. Mumbai ahead of the game.
