So, the hosts clinch the thriller and take the top place in the table. They have now extended their winning streak to 4 matches. Gujarat on the other hand failed to hold on their good record against Mumbai. They will now look to start afresh when they host Bangalore. The action now shifts to Bangalore, where they are hosting the men from Pune. Switch tabs to catch all the action from that match. Cheers!
Nitish Rana has been awarded the Man of the Match for another superb fifty. He once again set up the platform for his team and is currently now the tournament's leading run-scorer.
Gujarat bowlers were far from impressive as all of them lacked the presence of mind to bowl to set batsmen. Praveen Kumar, the most experienced pacer of the team, was expensive as he bowled a series of wides. Basil Thampi was brilliant with his yorkers but didn't get enough support from the other bowlers. The visitors faced similar problems - lack of variety in bowling - and would be desperate to make some changes. What will Raina say? Who will be the Man of the Match? Let's find out at the presentation...
Mumbai's brilliant run in the Indian T20 League continues. Rohit Sharma, who was in a lean touch, remained unbeaten to steer his side to a 6-wicket win. Early on, it was Nitish Rana who slammed his third fifty and gave the hosts a solid start along with Jos Buttler who stitched together a 85-run stand with the former. The hosts must be ecstatic with this win as now they are 1st in the points table.
Praveen Kumar to Rohit Sharma
Winning runs! The skipper has hit them and has announced his return as well. Pitched outside off, Sharma leans into the shot and with gentle hands pushes it in the cover region. Once again they take off for a couple and complete it with ease. The home camp is delighted as they WIN BY 6 WICKETS AND 3 BALLS TO SPARE! The kids are happy too and are on their feet, seeing their team win the game.
NOT OUT! Full around leg, Sharma digs it out through mid-wicket. They want a couple and they take off. Jadeja from the deep, runs to the ball, picks it with his left hand and hurls a throw at the bowler's end and hits. The umpires go upstairs and the replays shows that Hardik sliding his bat in, saved him. A couple is taken and now the hosts are just 2 runs short of a victory.
There is a run out appeal against Hardik Pandya at the non-striker's end. It is a direct hit and Hardik Pandya is in danger.
FOUR! Cheeky shot! Kumar comes form around the wicket, hurls it very full around leg Rohit keeps his calm and executes his paddle past the keeper to the fence. That's class! Skipper is back in his groove. 4 needed off 5 balls now.
Praveen Kumar will bowl the final over of the innings. 8 runs needed off 6 balls. Will there be a twist in tale? Let's find out.

Andrew Tye to Hardik Pandya

Andrew Tye to Kieron Pollard
