Right then. That is all we have from this game. The action in the Indian T20 League continues as on Wednesday, 29th September 2021, we will have the clash between Bangalore and Rajasthan at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). Do join us then. Cheers!
Kieron Pollard is the Man of the Match! He says that his bowling is a bit underrated. Adds that as an individual he tries to do what the team wants and he had his day with the ball. Mentions that he targets certain batters and other specialists are there in the team. He mentions that he doesn't have pace, swing, seam, or spin but uses his brain to get the job done. Mentions that he is getting older but it's nice sometimes to show the young guys how it's done. Ends by saying that they got the two points which is the most important thing.
The Mumbai skipper, Rohit Sharma says that they didn't play to their potential but they stick to each other during this time. Says that they have been in a similar situation previously and they learn from it. Adds that they have a brilliant squad and they play well when asked to. He praises Pandya on the way he played, he says that he is coming after an injury so he needed some time in the middle. Talking about Kishan, he says that it was a tough call to take but he can be back when needed. Laughs while saying that the track is definitely better than what he played in England. Says that the grass is coming off the pitch and it was a good batting pitch. Adds that Pollard has been a key player for so long and today he delivered.
KL Rahul, the losing skipper of Punjab, says that it was a great fight from them. Says that 135 was not enough and they should have posted 170 but they have done well to show fight and the next two games will be very interesting for them. Adds that they have not been able to handle the pressure in the middle but they will learn over time. Says that they try to stay positive and they take one game at a time. Says they just enjoy playing cricket and do not think much of the result. Says they just tell the boys to enjoy their game.
Another good bowling display from Punjab but it was not enough for them to bag the two points. They needed a win here but they could not overpower Mumbai. They started well as Ravi Bishnoi struck in consecutive balls to remove 2 Mumbai batters early on. Then, they kept the pressure building by bowling tight lines and lengths and did not allow the batters of Mumbai to score runs freely. Aiden Markram was decent in his spell, whereas, Arshdeep Singh and Nathan Ellis displayed their class once again with an impressive outing. Mohammed Shami was slightly expensive and could not contain the batters towards the end. In the end, Mumbai did enough to scalp the 2 points on offer.
Usually, the openers of Mumbai have been good in providing a good platform at the start, and they did that well in the last game against Bangalore too, but it did not happen in this game. Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav fell in consecutive balls and Mumbai were in some trouble. Quinton de Kock and Saurabh Tiwary steadied things slightly before de Kock departed. Tiwary though continued and played very well for his 45, but lost his wicket at the wrong time. The onus fell on the duo of Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard and those two kept their calm, scored a couple of boundaries, ensured the game was within grasp and helped their team cross the line.
Finally. Finally, Mumbai have won a game. It has felt like a lifetime, right? Well, that's because Mumbai are just serial winners, so, every time they get a result that isn't a win, it is a surprise. They will be hoping that this win turns around their fortunes and they can continue with the same momentum. Punjab, on the other hand, will be disheartened that they could not cross the line as they have bowled very well, but it was not meant to be.

SIX! DROPPED! It's all over now! On a length and Hardik Pandya rocks back to pull it. He flat-bats it towards long on where the fielder, Deepak Hooda spills the catch and the ball goes over the ropes. MUMBAI WIN BY 6 WICKETS!

Mohammed Shami To Hardik Pandya
FOUR! Up and over! Length again, on off and Pandya goes on the back foot. He manages to clear Chris Gayle at mid on and splits the gap at long on and deep mid-wicket. Mumbai have the finishing line in sight now as they need just 5 more!

Full and straight. Pollard thumps it down to long off, almost taking the umpire out in the process. They get a single and now 16 runs are required off 12 balls.

Arshdeep Singh To Kieron Pollard
SIX! BANG! It was building up to be such a good over for Punjab and then Pollard has ruined it. Arshdeep Singh misses the yorker outside off by a couple of inches and Pollard doesn't let it go unpunished. Pollard just lifts this one over long off for a biggie.

Arshdeep Singh To Kieron Pollard
FOUR! Welcome boundary for Mumbai. Low full toss, wide of off stump. Pollard creams it through covers for a boundary, nobody moved as that raced away to the ropes.

Mohammed Shami To Hardik Pandya
That one had just extra bounce on it. Another good-length ball and outside off. Pandya hops and looks to cut away but is undone by the pace and the bounce.
Will Nathan Ellis continue? Or will Arshdeep Singh come back on? It is the latter! Arshdeep Singh (3-0-16-0) to bowl out!

Good-length ball, outside off. Pandya can't get any bat on it.

SIX! What a shot from Hardik Pandya! That body blow has fired him up. Length ball, on middle. Pandya stands tall and whips this one over the deep square leg fence for a maximum.

Mohammed Shami To Hardik Pandya
FOUR! Well, the previous delivery might have hurt Pandya but he has now hurt Punjab. Marginally short and pulled away with authority into the square leg fence.

Mohammed Shami To Hardik Pandya
Ooooh! That was fiesty from Mohammed Shami. He hits the deck hard on middle and the ball seams in sharply. Pandya can't get out of the way and gets hit on the shoulders. That must have stung.

Another dot ball, the pressure starts to build. Back of a length, on off. Hardik Pandya punches it off the back foot but straight to mid off.
Ravi Bishnoi is done for the night. Who will replace him? Mohammed Shami (2-0-14-1), it is!
