18.6 - A Tye to K Pandya
FOUR LEG BYES! And that's it, the job is done. MUMBAI WIN BY 6 WICKETS! The final runs didn't come in the most desirable manner, but nobody cares, especially the Mumbai dugout. Tye spears it full around off, Krunal swings and misses. It goes off his back pad and away to the third man boundary. The Punjab players appeal for a leg before, but the umpire remains unmoved.
18.5 - A Tye to R Sharma
Just behind a length, outside off, Rohit leans across and works it to mid-wicket. Brings the elder Pandya back on strike.
18.4 - A Tye to K Pandya
Swings across the line once more, not the ideal connection though. A single to deep mid-wicket for a single.
18.3 - A Tye to K Pandya
SIX! Right in the slot and that's gone miles into the stands. The 50-run stand is up with this. Krunal Pandya stands his ground and murders this powerfully across the line. Clears wide long on and Mumbai are on the verge of a vital win here.
18.2 - A Tye to K Pandya
FOUR! Slower delivery on a back of a length, Krunal picks this up quickly. Waits for it and then slices it over point to find the fence.
18.1 - A Tye to R Sharma
Sharma charges out of his crease and smacks it down towards long on for a run.
Ov 18: 1 4 1 4 4 6 ( 20 Runs )
17.6 - M Stoinis to K Pandya
SIX! That's a biiiiiigggggg hit! Krunal Pandya is taking it to Marcus Stoinis. 20 off the over. Just ahead of a length on middle and off, the slower one, Krunal gets his front foot out of the way and launches it high and handsome over long on. Maximum! 16 needed to win from 12 balls now, very much in Mumbai's reach.
17.5 - M Stoinis to K Pandya
FOUR! Juicy full toss, Krunal says thank you for the gift and puts it away. On the pads, he whips this with the wrists behind square leg. Nobody out there, it's another boundary.
17.4 - M Stoinis to K Pandya
FOUR! Now Krunal joins in on the action. Width offered outside off, the southpaw doesn't need any second invitation to go after this. He crashes it through the covers and finds the fence.
17.3 - M Stoinis to R Sharma
Waits for the ball to come to him as he dabs it just wide of backward point and rotates strike.
17.2 - M Stoinis to R Sharma
FOUR! Class, all class! When he's on song, there are few better. Punjab need to be weary of his threat now. Very full and outside off, Rohit's already picked his spot as he drills the drive through extra cover for a boundary.
17.1 - M Stoinis to K Pandya
Goes full and straight, Krunal mistimes the loft down the ground. Will get just the one run, but that will bring his skipper back on strike.
