Mentions that they thought they had the game covered but Punjab came back well and it was a see-saw battle.

Ends by saying that there are a lot of positives and need to keep moving forward.
Earlier in the game, we saw a dominating batting performance by some of the Mumbai batters which built the foundation for the rest of the team. It started with Rohit Sharma attacking from the get-go. He was supported by Suryakumar Yadav for a major part of the innings and they both got a lot of runs on the board. Tilak Varma picked up the pace as well and dealt a lot of lusty blows. The others played small cameos to take their team to a respectable total of 192. For Punjab, Harshal Patel was the star at the death as he scalped 3 wickets. Kagiso Rabada got 1 while Sam Curran added 2 wickets to his tally.
Mumbai was given a shaky start by Gerald Coetzee as he went for a lot of runs off the first few deliveries. However, he bounced back with the wicket of Prabhsimran Singh in the same over and gave the opening breakthrough. Jasprit Bumrah who was seen with the new ball for the first time this season, showcased his class as he got rid of Rilee Rossouw with a sharp toe crusher. He followed it up with the wicket of Sam Curran as well in the same over. Coetzee struck next with the wicket of Liam Livingstone with a well-directed ball. Shreyas Gopal got rid of Harpreet Singh soon after the Powerplay with a brilliant catch off his own bowling. Madhwal trapped Jitesh Sharma right in front of the stumps and broke a crucial partnership. Then it was all about Punjab for a brief period until Bumrah was brought back and he sent back Shashank Singh to the dugout. Right when Mumbai was staring at defeat, Gerald came in and got the wicket of the dangerous-looking Ashutosh Sharma. Hardik Pandya got his first wicket of the night in the penultimate over as he got rid of Harpreet Brar. In the end, it was a good throw by Mohammad Nabi which made sure that Kagiso Rabada couldn't get to his crease and that sealed the game in their favor. However, they still have a lot to look upon, especially in the bowling department. For now, they take those two points home and climb up the table.
Punjab started off with a couple of boundaries but was dealt heavy blows soon after. Prabhsimran Singh departed for a golden duck in the very first over. Next, it was time for Rilee Rossouw and Sam Curran to walk back dejected, in the very next over. Liam Livingstone too couldn’t establish himself as he too was dismissed in the third over of the chase. This put a hold on the runs getting added to the board. Harpreet Singh was just about getting settled when he chipped one straight back to the bowler. Inside 7 overs, Punjab were reduced to half their batting power. Jitesh Sharma was looking good when he got trapped off a full toss. After that, a good partnership formed between Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma bringing them back in the game. However, Shashank Singh couldn’t carry his innings ahead. Ashutosh Sharma took the attack to the opponents and pulled his team back into the game. He scored a half-century, his first in the league in just 23 balls. From 77/6, Ashutosh Sharma managed to get his team to 168/8 before walking back to the dugout. Brar too couldn’t stay till the end but he played a huge role in the chase. Kagiso Rabada was run out in the final over trying to get back on strike and it sealed the deal for Mumbai. Punjab have a lot to be proud of especially the two youngsters Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma who almost earned them a win.
A NAIL BITER! Yes, we have just witnessed another exciting match in the Indian T20 League. It was full of twists which started off in favor of Mumbai, then for a brief period it was Punjab who looked to be in charge. Towards the end, it was the visitors who took charge of the game back and managed to get a well-deserved win. Punjab were bowled out for 183 and just 10 runs short of the target.

Akash Madhwal To Kagiso Rabada OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! WHAT A WAY FOR THE GAME TO END! MUMBAI WIN BY 9 RUNS! Madhwal keeps it full and near the tramline on off, Kagiso Rabada walks across his stumps and reaches out to cream it through covers. Hits it along the ground to the right of deep cover. The first run is completed comfortably but Rabada slips a bit while returning for the second run, which made the difference there. Mohammad Nabi swoops in towards the ball quickly and releases an accurate and flat throw, near the stumps at the batting end. Ishan Kishan gets to the stumps quickly and takes the bails off. The third umpire is called into action and the replays confirm that Rabada is short of his crease despite the stretch. Mumbai players break into celebrations after seeing the replays on the big screen. Despair on the faces of Sam Curran and his men as they come close yet again, only to fall short.
Is that out? Kagiso Rabada wanted a couple there but a sharp throw has brought the final decision to the third umpire. Replays show that Rabada is inches short of the crease and that is game over.

Hardik Pandya To Kagiso Rabada
Slower and fuller, on middle, Kagiso Rabada clears his front leg and knocks it down to long on for a single. Folks, we are going to the final over with Punjab requiring 12 runs. With 9 wickets down, you would back the bowling side but the way Rabada cleared the fence with his first ball, Punjab are in with more than a shout. Another game involving Punjab that is going the distance.

Hardik Pandya To Harpreet Brar OUT!
OUT! IN THE AIR AND GONE! The Mumbai skipper with a crucial strike for his side and what a time to get the first wicket of the night. Body blow to Punjab as Brar departs. On a good length, on middle and leg, Harpreet Brar gets inside the line and shapes up to swipe it away behind square on the leg side. Gets this one off the bottom part of the bat and it goes only as far as deep backward square leg where Mohammad Nabi takes it near his chest.

The call is for two and they get it! Sees the batter move away to the leg side and follows him with a back-of-a-length delivery, Harpreet Brar whips it between deep mid-wicket and long on for a couple of runs.
Hardik Pandya takes the ball himself now for the penultimate over. He will need to bowl a tight over here. 23 needed for Punjab to win in the final two overs. Mumbai has also incurred a penalty for maintaining a slow over rate. They will have to keep one less fielder outside the 30-yard circle for the final two overs.

Fails to get the elevation to clear the man in the deep and picks out Mohammad Nabi who makes no mistake.

Jasprit Bumrah To Ashutosh Sharma
Rolls his fingers over the ball and bowls it on a good length, around off, Ashutosh Sharma picks the change of pace and dabs it with soft hands in front of cover for a single. Good sensible batting by Ashutosh.
Strategic break! The players get a breather and they do need one. Ashutosh Sharma and Harpreet Brar can very much make sure that they snatch a win out of the jaws of a loss. From a tough position, they have brought their team just a few hits away from a victory provided they do not lose their wicket. Mumbai however, has the same trouble with their bowlers. Barring Jasprit Bumrah, none of them have managed to bowl well towards the later stages of the innings. This is getting down to the wire here in Punjab so stay tuned as both teams fight for those two points.

Madhwal misses his mark yet again and serves it right in the slot, on middle, Harpreet Brar clears his front leg and lets his long levers do the rest. Tonks it back over the bowler's head and it goes many a mile. Punjab on top now out of nowhere, needing 28 runs off the last four overs. But remember, Bumrah has one over up in his sleeve and six balls are enough for him to turn the tide back in Mumbai's favour.

Akash Madhwal To Ashutosh Sharma

Akash Madhwal To Jitesh Sharma OUT!
OUT! PLUMB IN FRONT! Jitesh Sharma looks to be a goner but he has taken the review. This looks more in hope than anything else as Jitesh missed a straight delivery there. Madhwal goes searching for the yorker but slips in a low full toss, on middle and leg, Jitesh Sharma looks to clip it away off his pads and gets beaten for pace as he fails to get any bat on it. Gets pinged low on the front pad and the umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger. There is no bat involved and the Ball Tracking shows the ball to be clipping the leg stump and it is umpire's call. Another one bites the dust and Madhwal has his first wicket.
A slight halt! It seems that Akash Madhwal has hurt his finger trying to catch that ball flying straight towards him. He was seen clutching his finger in pain and the physio had to rush out straight away. After applying some magic spray he is fine to resume his over.

Akash Madhwal To Shashank Singh
DROPPED! Akash Madhwal puts down a sharp chance! Madhwal comes back into the attack and hurls it in on a good length from over the wicket, on middle, Shashank Singh puts the dancing shoes on and drills it back towards the bowler. Madhwal is late to react and sticks out his left hand. Gets a hit on the left thumb as the ball rolls towards the leg side. They cross.
Strategic Break! Punjab needs a big partnership desperately. They are in a lot of trouble currently but the youngsters Shashank Singh and Jitesh Sharma look to be going strong. After their initial batting collapse early on in the innings, they need to also make sure not to lose any more wickets. Mumbai, on the other hand, shouldn't take their feet off the pedal and continue to build pressure. They have a chance to improve their NRR here if they get all the 10 wickets. Gerald Coetzee, Jasprit Bumrah, and Shreyas Gopal have managed to tear through half of Punjab's batting lineup. Now the others need to pull their socks up and get wickets for their team. Akash Madhwal has been handed the ball for his second over.
