full toss on middle pushed down the ground, past the bowler, and the long-on can't get around it in time to stop them from turning for the second. Mumbai have stolen this after looking like absolute certainties to take it midway through the over and briefly losing it with Pollard's dismissal against the run of play
That's all from us tonight. See you tomorrow
Pollard: I went up the order, I enjoy batting at Wankhede, I thought if we could get some sixes off Ashwin in the middle we'd be in the game. I love the ball sailing into the stands. Obviously, Rohit is captain of the team, we have a day game coming up, happy to hand over the captaincy to him
12.18am First game as captain in this league and Pollard produced one of his finest IPL knocks, his highest IPL score, to bring Mumbai within touching distance of a win; a win that looked very unlikely when he had come out to bat, and in the end, Alzarri Joseph, the hero on debut last match held his nerve to take them home. These two teams have made a habit of producing thrillers at this venue but one's got to feel for KL Rahul, who scored his maiden IPL hundred but finished on the wrong side of another cliffhanger between these two teams here in Mumbai
Hardik: Hats off to the legend. One guy who could do this was Kieron Pollard. To be honest, from the situation where we came back from four runs four balls, I thought we had the game
Ashwin: We were a little up and down with out catching. It was a par score, with the dew falling, Shami was excellent but we couldn't get through. Sam was obviously under the pump, it's his first experience in the IPL in such a situation, he'll definitely get richer with the experience. I thought we could have been steelier with resolve, this is a very challenging ground, we are looking forward to getting back home.
full toss on middle, swung away to deep midwicket but only a single
yorker on off, squeezed away to long-on and they all they get is one
full toss on middle, the only thing in its favour is that it is fast and straight and Joseph can only pat it back to the bowler
short ball outside off and do we have a twists here? Ankit Rajpoot, who looked to have lost the match for his team for all money has had Pollard miscue the pull shot straight to deep midwicket. It was a good short ball, well outside off which meant Pollard had to drag it around and couldn't time or place it well enough
full toss and now the match is in Mumbai's pocket. flicked away down to fine leg, it was an absolute freebie
full toss on the pads and that's into the stand over deep squareleg, and what's more Ankit Rajpoot, who had been off the field since completing his previous spell has overstepped and it's a free hit
Pradip Dalvi: "This is WEST Indian premier league!!"
npk: "The Caribbean Carnival continues! First Russel, then Narine and now Pollard."
Ali Imran: "Just went to ran an errand, did not see this coming"
yorker outside off, squeezed away towards point
yorker outside off, finally finds the the spot and squeezed away to deep cover, this time Pollard takes one
Forecaster has jumped from 13% to 45% after that six
length on middle again and Pollard is not going to miss out on these. Just a flick of the wrists carries it all the way, deep into the upper tier of the stand at long-on
length outside off, poor delivery, a gift for Pollard given the mood he is in and accepts it gleefully! He has swatted this flat and hard over long-off
full outside off, Pollard hammers it to deep extra cover again, doesn't time it as well and straight to the man, refuses the single
full outside off, tries to keep it away from Pollard but he's found the middle of the bat through the covers and the boundary
full toss on middle, pushed to deep cover but Pollard refuses the single to have strike for the next over
length on middle, slower ball, not picked and swung away to the leg side, not timed perfectly but the lack of power as it trickles away to long-on allows two
full outside off and Joseph pierces the off side field with a swat, gets it just wide of mid-off and once it beat him it was always four
short ball, well directed, fast and accurate, Joseph swings and misses
physio has come out for Shami . We also have a ball change
length outside off and swatted past the bowler, taking Shami's hand on the way, well stopped at long-off to keep it to one
length and angled in, cramps him, strikes him on the thigh pad and it trickles away to the off side for a leg bye
full toss and was it a no-ball? No, not high enough but it certainly went high enough and importantly far enough, swung away deep into the stands over deep squareleg to bring up his fifty and keep his team very much in the hunt
