Mumbai Indians cemented their second spot in the Indian Premier League 2017 points table with a five-run win over Gujarat Lions in the Super Over in Rajkot on Saturday night. Parthiv Patel (70) seemed to have put Mumbai on top in the chase but some poor batting from others saw Gujarat claw their way back in to the game. Gujarat were superb in the field and exacted numerous run outs to come back from the dead. Krunal Pandya was run out on the final ball to take the match into the Super Over. Mumbai managed to score 11 runs after batting first. Jasprit Bumrah bowled a superb Super Over to take Mumbai to a narrow win.

Earlier, Gujarat Lions (GL) posted a total of 153 for nine against Mumbai Indians (MI) in match 35 of Indian Premier League in Rajkot. Ishan Kishan was the lone fighter in the top order who scored 48 runs and fell short of his maiden IPL fifty. Lasith Malinga who was brought back into the squad took the most important wickets of Brendon McCullum (6) and Aaron Finch (0). As far as Lions are concerned, their batting in the middle order suffered due to excellent bowling display of the opposition. Krunal Pandya finished 3 for 12 in his four overs. Mumbai Indians, who are in great form, would like to chase the target down quickly and get back to the top of the table. (SCORECARD)

So that's it from us for today. What an exciting match we have had! Mumbai have turned out victorious but you have to state the cliche here that "Cricket was the winner". We are not done with double headers yet as we have another which starts tomorrow. Firstly, Punjab host Delhi in Mohali at 1600 local (1030 GMT), and then Hyderabad host Kolkata at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Surely an exciting day of cricket awaits. Until then, cheers and take care.

!

Man of the Match, Krunal Pandya feels that he is an all-rounder and needs to contribute in all three aspects of the game. Mentions that he knew that the wicket was not that easy to bat on. Reckons that he thought of going as close as possible to take the game through. Ends by saying that he had a chat with Malinga and they had decided to take the game to the last ball.

!

Mumbai skipper, Rohit Sharma says that winning the game is the perfect birthday present for him. Mentions that this was the first Super Over he took part in. Reckons that chasing was tough as the wicket kept getting slower and slower. Applauds the Gujarat bowlers for bowling really well. Credits Krunal Pandya for nearly pulling it off and praises all the guys for sticking to their plans. Feels that momentum takes a crucial part in this tournament. Ends by saying that his squad has quite some talent.

!

Gujarat skipper, Suresh Raina says that his heart is fine. Feels that this game was one of the most exciting games he has been part of. Reckons that the wicket was quite slow and says that they tried really hard. Appreciates his bowlers for bowling well after they fell 30 runs short with the bat. Ends by saying that it was a really good game of cricket, even after being on the losing side.

!

We witnessed a lot of drama in the death overs where the wickets fell, the runs came and eventually it went to the Super Over, where Mumbai managed clinch a superb victory. It was first with the bat when Kieron Pollard scored the runs and then, Jasprit Bumrah with the ball who did not let the Gujarat batsmen score. A truly enthralling encounter which the visiting side will be glad they won.

!

Then, with a target of 154 to chase, Mumbai got off to a good start with Parthiv Patel scoring a fluent 70. Gujarat made a good comeback in the middle overs with their spinners choking the run flow. James Faulkner has to be given special credit as he bowled a fantastic spell, in which he took 2 wickets in a single over. Thampi came back well in the end and scalped wickets.

!

Could not have asked for a better game of cricket. This is what the Indian T20 League is about. We had two teams who gave it their all tonight and provided the fans with entertainment of the highest quality. It all started with Gujarat putting up a competitive total on the board courtesy a blazing knock from Kishan and some late hitting from Jadeja, Faulkner and Tye. If it weren't for them, Mumbai would have restricted them to a low total as Krunal Pandya led the attack with a 3-fer and he was well supported by his fellow bowlers as almost all of them chipped in with wickets.

!

Terrific work from Jasprit Bumrah to bowl like that, under such immense pressure, and get his team over the line. With 11 to defend, he only conceded 6 runs, that too against quality batsmen. What makes it even more special is that he started off with a no ball and a wide. He came to the fore with his exceptional yorkers and variations to put in a superb display. The away side can rejoice as they've won this match in some style.

!

Ball 6: Bumrah to McCullum, 1 run! McCullum hits this full ball down to long off and takes a single. It's not enough and MUMBAI WIN THE SUPER OVER!

!

Ball 5: Bumrah to Finch, 1 run! Full toss on off stump, Finch hits it through the covers for a single.
