8.05pm It's another stellar defence from Daredevils. But Mumbai just buckled under the pressure of a tough chase, just like RCB yesterday! Mumbai weren't able to keep their composure in tough chasing conditions, they lost several wickets at bad times and even with a Cutting cameo that threatened for so long, they fell just short.

Daredevils finish the season strong, and if you look at it, they finished last but just one win behind Mumbai. They finished the season strongly and carry some good memories after a very poor start to the season. They've had a tumultuous season, including a change in leadership forced by results not going their way. Shreyas Iyer took over and immediately made a big impact, but they just didn't have enough to threaten the rest of the teams in a tight playoffs race.

For Mumbai, it was a bit of the same again: a slow start, a good comeback and threatening again to make the playoffs from an improbable scenario. All they needed to do was win today, but their batting faltered and they'll end placed fifth on the points table.

w
Patel to Bumrah, OUT
it's all over! Mumbai are eliminated from IPL 2018. A slower ball outside off from Harshal and Bumrah just chips a catch to long-on. Boult takes the catch. Glum, glum faces in the Mumbai dugout as their campaign ends in the final hurdle before the playoffs.
JJ Bumrah c Boult b Patel 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

12 off 4. No 10 and 11. Bumrah. The thick outside edge? Or inside edge?

19.2
w
Patel to Cutting, OUT
and taken! That was a very brave delivery from Harshal and he gets away with it. A short and slow wide delivery outside off. Cutting had walked across, looking to drag the swat over midwicket but because he has to reach out for it so much, he's not in control of the stroke. He picks out deep midwicket. No relay catch this time. A terrific cameo from Cutting though.
BCJ Cutting c Maxwell b Patel 37 (20b 2x4 3x6) SR: 185.00

12 off 5. Just two sixes away now. Iyer and Harshal making changes to their field, but he didn't bowl to it anyway in the first ball. Cover comes up, backward point goes back. Wide yorkers?

19.1
6
Patel to Cutting, SIX runs
a short delivery down leg and Cutting smashes that for SIX. That's the worst ball you can bowl. Short and slow down leg and Cutting just helps it along over short fine leg for six. WOW. Mumbai still in this.

No singles now. 18 off 6 for Cutting and Mumbai. Three sixes needed? Harshal Patel or Plunkett? Harshal Patel will bowl. Cover goes back. Third man is in.

Boult to Markande, OUT
he misses a full toss. A full toss on off that is very quick, Markande misses it and the ball knocks off stump
M Markande b Boult 3 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

This is essentially a free hit for Markande, he needs a boundary or two

18.5
1
Boult to Cutting, 1 run
well bowled. A wide yorker ends up as a low and wide full toss, sliced to deep backward point for one.

19 off 8

18.4
2
Boult to Cutting, 2 runs
a full toss outside off is badly hit to deep cover for a couple. Cutting wanted to hit that over long-off but the ball skewed away.

21 off 9 to make the playoffs. An entire season of hardwork comes down to these nine balls. WOW.

18.3
1
Boult to Markande, 1 run
Shaw misses the stumps at the batsman's end, with Cutting not even in the picture. A full delivery is driven to short cover. Shaw takes aim and throws the ball wide. Boult cannot believe it. Cutting back on strike. Pant made the attempt to come front and gather, but fell over while collecting. He needs some time to gather himself.

BAT ON BALL, for Mumbai

18.2
Boult to Markande, no run
not easy for a No. 9. A good length delivery on middle, goes over the stump after Markande misses a dab.

Will Iyer bring the fielders closer to stop the single? That's the obvious ploy.

18.1
1
Boult to Cutting, 1 run
excellently bowled. A wide yorker outside off, jammed to long-off.

Like this very much, Cutting takes the responsibility to do this all on his own, it's the right decision. 23 off 12. Boult will finish.

Plunkett to Markande, no run
good length outside off, an open-faced dab to third man. Cutting refuses the single.

Can Markande find the boundary? 23 off 13, Iyer and Plunkett chat. Fine leg goes back.

Bucky: "Mumbai reminds me of the Australian team from the 2000s - they might be down, but you can't count them out - it isn't over until the Fat Lady sings!"

1
Plunkett to Cutting, 1 run
a nice low full toss outside off, driven to long-on for a run

24 off 14

Darth Vader: "Cutting is the unlikely HERO!"

17.4
Plunkett to Cutting, no run
the change in length works. A short offcutter outside off, beats Cutting's pull.
17.3
4
Plunkett to Cutting, FOUR runs
hang on to your hats! This ain't done just yet. Full and straight, an offcutter, he picks it and drills the ball over his partner's head. Fierce power over Markande, through long-on
17.2
6
Plunkett to Cutting, SIX runs
that's maaaaaassive! Wheeee. Big hit from Cutting. Now there is time to take it easy too. Full and straight, right in the slot for Cutting, who stays upright and then lofts the ball over long-on. Lovely hit
17.1
4
Plunkett to Cutting, FOUR runs
gets it past short fine leg for four. Some claps in the Mumbai dugout. A slower ball down leg, flicked away past short fine leg. Well played.

Plunkett is back. 38 off 18, Mumbai juust in this.

In tennis, Rafael Nadal is hoping to wrap up his French Open preparation with an eighth title at the Rome Masters, while Alexander Zverev is looking to back up his title in Madrid last week with another trophy. Those in the Indian subcontinent can stream the Rome final here.

Boult to Cutting, 1 run
a low full toss down leg, worked down to short fine leg. He picks up and fires, but misses at the batsman's end. Out if he hit

Boult to Cutting, SIX runs
picks that and launched over long-on. A slower ball outside off, Cutting waits and waits before heaving that over midwicket

Boult to Cutting, 2 runs
falls short of Harshal Patel! A slower ball down leg, flicked away in the air towards deep backward square leg. He runs to his right but can't quite get there
