Washinton Sundar turned the match on its head by picking up Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard in the same over and Mumbai never really recovered from there. The hosts kept losing wickets at regular intervals and at the end fell short by 20 runs. Parthiv Patel scored his 10th IPL fifty but that was never going to be enough for Mumbai Indians to get over the line. Shardul Thakur picked up three wickets that helped Pune qualify for the final. Mumbai will get another opportunity when they face the winner of the eliminator on Friday. (Scorecard)

19:45 IST: Whether to go with Karn Sharma ahead of Harbhajan Singh is the right move or not, only time will tell. But Pune not having any left-handers must have gone against Bhajji.

19:30 IST: Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma wins toss, elects to bowl against Rising Pune Supergiant.
19:25 IST: Mumbai made quite a few changes in their last league match against Kolkata Knight Riders and still won the match.
19:22 IST: Pune will however miss the services of Ben Stokes who was a vital cog in their success this season.
19:20 IST: Mumbai Indians have had a brilliant tournament so far, having finished the group stages as table toppers. Rising Pune Supergiant picked up pace as the tournament reached the business end.
19:15: Hello and welcome to the match between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant. An important match for both the teams. The team winning the match will directly qualify to the final while the loser will get one more shot by playing the winner of the eliminator scheduled tomorrow between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders.
However, both sides then looked a little wobbly as they went up and down erratically, with RPS looking more so. Steve Smith would be extremely relieved to have had an easy last league match against Kings XI Punjab, which ended up being a knockout match. But now that his side is in the Qualifier 1, he faces a stern test, that too without key players like Ben Stokes and Imran Tahir, who have left to join the England and South Africa teams. Mumbai, on the other hand, have no real issues since they never really invested too much into fresh players for IPL 10. RPS will have their task cut out at the Wankhede. All the cards seem to be in MI's hands.
