That's all from us. Hoping everyone has their fingernails in tact. Good night

Jasprit Bumrah is the player of the match

Rohit Sharma: Honestly, I just go to know after crossing the rope that it was a no-ball. These kind of mistakes aren't good for the game. The over before that Bumrah bowled a ball which wasn't a wide but it was called. Anything over 180 you can fight with. It wasn't a safe score but we had the bowlers to get the job done. Even though Virat and AB had a partnership going, we didn't panic. I thought we stuck to our plans, it was a great effort by the bowlers. Should have got 200 with the bat on this pitch.

Anirrudh: "With all the technology available, I wonder why third umpire doesn't review for a no-ball every single ball instantly! It's bemusing to use to not leverage what we have!"

Nisar: "Whenever there is trouble, eyes move towards Bumrah. And he always delivers. This time the pupil lead the way and the master (Malinga) held his nerve"

Virat Kohli: "We are playing at IPL level, not club cricket ... that's just a ridiculous call off the last ball. the umpires should have their eyes open, it was a no-ball by an inch. it's a completely different game altogether. so if it's a game of margins, I don't know what's happening. They should have been more sharp and more careful out there."

The cries of ABD from the Bengaluru crowd have been muzzled by Bumrah's brilliance, as Mumbai clinch their first win of the season. As soon as the game finished, Nehra stormed out to the middle and was involved in an animated chat with the fourth umpire regarding the last ball, which was clearly a no-ball, missed by the on field umpires.

Malinga to Dube, no run, full toss on middle, swatted to long-on and Mumbai hung in there to clinch a thriller. Replays suggest that the last ball of the match should have been a no-ball, which would have meant a free-hit. That's a terrible miss from the umpire. RCB players aren't pleased

A wide yorker should eliminate six and do the trick
