Mumbai Indians87/10(18.5 overs)

12:03am Whew. We have witnessed a classic today. Fitting, 20 years after the famous Desert Storm match. But also not quite, if you're the man who was at the centre of that. A day to forget for Mumbai Indians. That was one truly surreal game of cricket, but don't go away anywhere just yet. We have Liverpool v AS Roma in the Champions League semi-finals coming your way in just a bit. Jump over to ESPN.in for more. We'll see you tomorrow!

Rashid Khan: First of all thanks to mighty Allah for such a performance after a few bad games. It was needed for me. I learnt a lot of things and had a good chat with the coaching staff - Moody, Murali, Laxman - and I just relaxed and enjoyed myself. And it brought me success. Murali told that whatever happens you have to be relaxed and be calm and do the basics right. This game is all about enjoyment. Credit to how the management have kept us whether we win or lose.

Rashid Khan is the Man of the Match.

Williamson: Clearly a touch surface. Without a doubt we were expecting a lot more from ourselves with the bat. Set out that if we had 140, we'd have enough runs. Turns out 120 was enough. It is good fun, T20, so much is happening so quickly. All together it was a fantastic second half for us. Once again, we haven't been able to put a collective performance together. There is depth in our squad which is important. A number of injuries, a change in balance. But the best part of it was how the guys were engaged in the second half.

S Kaul: Feeling great to do this when your teams needs it, in the crisis team. My domestic team went really well and I got into the India A team and the India team as well and it feels good when you get to that level. Bhuvi is there, before that Ashish Nehra was there and I learn a lot from them because they were champs in the IPL and international cricket as well. It really helped me.

Rohit Sharma: Got ourselves to blame. 118 on any wicket, we should have been able to get that. We just weren't there. Very happy with how the bowlers bowled. Our batters let us down again. There are so many things I want to talk about, but I don't want to pinpoint. We won't drop our heads. We needed to show some intent but we didn't. It was always going to be tough, the shot-making wasn't going to be easy, but they kept us guessing all the time. A few of us played bad shots including myself.


Sagar: "I was scratching my head after the auction - why so many pacers? The wise men (Moody and Lax) obviously planned for all eventualities.. and the investment paid off with Bhuvi out today and Billy out for season..."

Kabir: "Today's setback may be very hard to digest for MI, highly unlikely they would be able to get up from here- is it the knockout punch- very likely"

Snehil: "In the mid-innings interview, Tom Moody had said that SRH were about 30 runs short. Turns out they were 30 ahead."

sathish2888: "Not to forget Dhawan's stunning catches.. They were very crucial.."

Althaf: "How good Yusuf Pathan innings now.... it worths more than what it seemed at the half way mark. WELL PLAYED YUSUF"

11:46pm This is only the third time 20 wickets have fallen in an IPL game. Neither team made it to 19 overs. It's all bizzare, really. It wasn't as bad a pitch as all these numbers suggest. Just top-notch bowling and on this evening, the best bowling attack of the IPL have shown why. No Stanlake, No Bhuvneshwar. But they've done it. The lowest score they've ever defended and the lowest in IPL games in India.

Basil to Mustafizur, OUT

is that it? Yes it is! Deepak Hooda not in the XI today, but he has the opportunity to be on the field for a very, very famous moment. Gets under it at midwicket and completes a catch. Mustafiz looks to pull and gets it off the high part of the bat. A slice - no danger. Mumbai's innings was no danger, to be fair. A feeble end but a fitting one

Basil to Bumrah, 1 run

bunts one over the non-striker as he backs away to slog. Thampi just too quick off the surface for these two

18.3
Basil to Bumrah, no run

short of a length ball in the corridor. Swipes from under it and can't connect

Siddhant: "What the hell has happened? How the... what the..."

inside edge it appears. Length ball outside off. Gets on his back knee and looks to drive but this ends up with the keeper

Kaul to Bumrah, FOUR runs

oh there's life here still. Just about. Short of a length ball in at the hips. Bumrah swings cleanly and connects to drag this to fine leg's left. The slide won't help, it's four

Kaul to Hardik, OUT

aims midwicket again and that's curtains! Hardik Pandya has sliced one to third man! Same line and length three balls in a row, same shot offered with no result. You've got to question that strategy. But it's also superb bowling from Kaul. He has now picked up three wickets in under two overs. 3 off 19 balls for Pandya. This will be tough to get over. Mumbai on the verge of a stunning defeat.

Hardik Pandya c Basil Thampi b Kaul 3 (19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.78
17.3
Kaul to Hardik, no run

misses again! Looks to go leg side again. Short of a length ball outside off and it's too quick again. There are gaps over extra cover and mid-off, but he's aiming midwicket right now

17.2
Kaul to Hardik, no run

looks to swat it away but he's beaten by pace. You won't spot any faces at Wankhede, they are all covered with nervous palms. Short of a length "heavy ball" outside off shoots past the attempted slog

Mid-off in. Extra cover and point too. Fine leg in.

Kaul to Bumrah, 1 run

Dhawan flies to his right and can't hold on! Oh what a catch that would have been! Kaul gets it to rise in the corridor and Bumrah fends at it with hard hands. It is sailing high and very wide of Dhawan at wide slip. He does superbly to even reach it. But can only parry it to third man

Clearly trying to play out Rashid - not a bad ploy. He's backing himself to get 40 off the other bowlers. But that last ball could prove fatal now. Bumrah has a lot to do.

16.6
Rashid Khan to Hardik, no run

maiden. Hardik fails to get off strike. It's a length ball outside off. Looks like he wanted to tickle this through square leg but it spins away.

16.5

length ball at off stump, pushes it to point off the front foot

16.4
Rashid Khan to Hardik, no run

length on leg stump, flicked straight to short fine. Refuses the run again

googly. Length ball outside off. Blocked solidly on the front foot

16.2
Rashid Khan to Hardik, no run

length ball outside off, stabs at it outside off and is beaten. Revs. Such revs.

16.1
Rashid Khan to Hardik, no run

length ball outside off. Leans in to a drive to long-off. Refuses the run

Rashid in for his last over.

Deepak_Charuvi: "And this was meant to be a birthday gift for the #master.! #SRH game to lose now... "

Virag: "Wow , just horrible batting from Mumbai , not sure what is going on but Rohit and in turn mumbai have come out with dropped shoulders right from Game 1. Something isnt right in the Mumbai Camp and the close losses havent helped . "

Kaul to Markande, OUT

plumb! Markande is gone! Kaul has put the fear truly into Wankhede now! It's a full ball on middle. Markande plants the front leg across and tries to flick behind square. He's not good enough to do that. There is no doubt in this one
