Superb chase from Mumbai. No one went on to make that big score, but everyone chipped in with handy cameos to get them there. RCB came close, with Moeen Ali especially having a terrific evening. It has been the same story for them their whole season, just not enough to get over the line. Mumbai move up to third place with that victory, and RCB remain at the foot of the table. The IPL action will continue tomorrow, with Kings XI taking on the Royals. Join us again for that.

That will probably seal it. Chucked up by the spinner, and Hardik clobbers this over the long on fence for a maximum.

18.5 - P Negi to H Pandya

Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs.

The game is slipping away from RCB fast. Hardik shovels this over the legside, and splits the deep fielders for four more.

18.4 - P Negi to H Pandya

Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

Cracked through the covers, and the ball races away to hit the rope in no time.

18.3 - P Negi to H Pandya

Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs.

Hardik is right back in the crease, and forces this over long on somehow. Has to generate all the power himself, and does so brilliantly.

18.2 - P Negi to H Pandya

Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs.
