Jaiswal ended on the wrong side but ended as the deserved POTM recipient. Brilliant win for the hosts. SKY, Archer, David coming into form augurs well for them. That's it for now, two high-scoring thrillers ending with the chasing team winning. Thanks for tuning in, hope you enjoyed our coverage. I'm Ekanth on comms, Chandan Duorah and Thilak Rama were our scorers and it's goodbye from all of us.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, POTM: When I completed my century, I didn't know whether the ball went to the boundary. So I thanked God for everything. That was the highlight. Days like this definitely can happen. I want to focus on the process and work hard, and have the belief. I have been positive and am maintaining a good, fit lifestyle which is helping. The straight drive is my straight drive.

Rohit Sharma, MI captain: Was pleasing to see how we chased down the target. Last game too, we came close and we back ourselves to chase them down. So it was pleasing. Polly's shoes are big to fill, but Tim has got a lot of ability and power. At the back end that helps and is good to have. The changes in the side are difficult, but sometimes you have to play the conditions and make calls based on compositions, so the players need to be prepared for that. Jofra's had a massive injury, with bowlers we knew they need match practice. But his pace was a big positive and we thought SKY's innings like that was around the corner. (On Jaiswal) I watched him last year, he's taken it to the next level. I asked him 'where did you get the power from'. He said he's been going to the gym, that's good for him, India and RR.

Hari: "Time to remove the win prediction feature from Cricinfo?" Lol, nah, the fact that it went wrong illustrates how unlikely the result was.

Gorango: "Holder bowled 5 full tosses in a row. Maybe not the right death bowler."

Namit: "First Venky and now Jaiswal! It's official, MI is good in spoiling Centuries!!!"

Rohan: "The forecaster was stating RR was winning it till the 39th over, and yet MI won. This shows that Timmy is way beyond science and mathematics! :D"

Mustafa Moudi : "Fun Fact: A total of 827 Runs scored today in 4 innings with each innings total being higher than previous. What a Sunday !!"

Tim David: Amazing feeling. For our confidence, seeing how the boys went about it was awesome. It felt like every bowler had to be targeted but the conditions were batting-friendly. I wanted to play an innings like this for a while. In the final over, I tried to get in front and close the angle down, play good shots. It was good to bat at the end. Every time someone missed the yorker, you felt like you missed out as a batter.

Sanju Samson, RR captain: At the timeout, we were thinking that with the way SKY was going, we were thinking of fighting it out and we were almost there but Tim David did something special. (On the dew) It was kinda wet, not that wet, we were expecting it but had the experience to deal with it. The way we've been playing, with the last nine games ending with us winning or coming close, illustrates the high standards at which we've been playing. Jaiswal ended up on the wrong side but very happy for him personally.

On a belter with dew assisting the batters, MI lost Rohit early. It looked to me like it hit the off bail but slow-motion replays online suggest that might not have been straightforward. Sorry to the commentors who said so, I didn't see it at the time. Then Kishan couldn't get going but Green kept trying and made 44. It was when SKY took off that MI's chances rose. Ashwin was economical and took key wickets but his spell ended early. His spinning partner, Chahal, wasn't as effective. Boult and Sandeep bowled good death overs, but Holder's off-day cost the visitors big time. He was caught in a Tim David hurricane that swept over Wankhede.

11:50pm: David is Goliath! Jaiswal's 124 ends in vain. MI go up to 7th position and RR fall to 3rd in the points table. Hard to encapsulate the strokeplay, the power and brilliance with the bat. Ashwin's bowling shines out as well. But in the end, it was SKY and David's brilliance had the final say.

Varun: "while Holder did a Ben Stokes , David did a Brathwaite!"

Charlie99: "Someone had to say it - Remember the name!!"

Holder to David, SIX runs

Yes, David clears the 1000th IPL game ten minutes left in the day with another slog over to another full toss over midwicket! He lunges while roaring, gets up after punching the air. Tilak's helmet is off and jumps up onto his partner. Holder walks back while soul searching. David's team-mates run into the field to give him big bear hugs.

5 needed off 3. Last ball of the match?

Sandeep to David, 1 run

Slot ball. David looks for a launch over long-on but gets it along the ground to the fielder. He asks for new gloves, good thing for MI is he'll retain strike

18.5
4
Sandeep to David, FOUR runs

Goes for the wide yorker, not wide enough. David goes on one knee and powers a cover drive. It's off the toe but goes flat, deep into the outfield and in the gap at deep cover

Two great balls from Sandeep in a row. Two balls to go, lots of field changes. Fielders in the deep on the off side

Wide yorker nailed, Tilak tries to reach out and drill it with an open bat face. Gets a thick inside edge, towards square leg.

Full toss is close to the off-side tramline. Slapped to long-off, grip came off from the bottom hand

Roop: "Any slow over rate by RR ??" Suds pings 'Five minutes remaining, says the big screen. One over behind.' Points out short third is very fine as Sandeep returns

Boult to David, FOUR runs

Low full toss outside off, decent ball but David manages to carve it through cover. Hovered low before racing to the fence

Can Boult finish the over well?

17.5
Boult to David, no run

Sound as ball goes past bat, keeper takes it but no review. MI review though, for a wide. David was on fourth stump as he reached out and tried to drive it over cover on one knee. Third umpire says he went across and declares it to be a fair ball

Boult to Tilak Varma, 1 run

Low full toss at 137kph at the stumps is flicked to deep midwicket

17.3
Boult to Tilak Varma, no run

Slower bouncer outside off beats the pull, Malinga applauds. Was just outside off, Tilak waited before trying to muscle it with a swivel. Missed nonetheless

Boult to Tilak Varma, FOUR runs

Ramped fine. Tilak went across early and got on one knee, was followed by a yorker on leg. He used the angle and bent across to get it wide of the keeper

"The worms aren't letting go of each other," says Ravi Shastri with MI needing 43 off 18. Boult has another over, can he finish off in style after his brilliant last over?

Mix up ends with no trouble. Was a full ball that was punched to the bowler's left. Deflected off the non-striker to the right, the batters went close to halfway down and ran back. Did so in time
