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)

WASHINGTON SUNDAR (MAN OF THE MATCH) says that he is very pleased to perform well in a big game against such a strong opponent. Dedicates the award to his parents. Feels that keeping things simple has worked for him and states that Dhoni's inputs have helped him a lot. Maintains that he isn't bothered about developing too many variations at present and just wants to focus on accuracy.

STEVEN SMITH says the record has been good against Mumbai this year. Praises Dhoni, Rahane and Tiwary for their knocks. Adds they were a bit conservative (going batting light) as Stokes wasn't there but feels his boys have put up a good show tonight. Further says one needs to peak at the right time in this tournament and that win against Punjab in the last game helped them a lot. Informs there was a bit of dew but the wicket stayed slow and remained same throughout the match which helped their cause. On Washington Sundar, he says it was a phenomenal show from the young man and hopes that he delivers it yet again in the night of the final. Ends by saying they have a break now and would look to relax and come out hard so that they can be the better team in the final.

!

ROHIT SHARMA says that he thought 160 was below par but feels that they didn't bat well. Opines that it's the worst batting performance by his side this year. Rues the lack of partnerships that hurt them. Says that they weren't surprised by the slowness of the track and adds that they should have adjusted to it, considering that this is their home ground. Maintains that his side can make a comeback in the next match.

Mumbai will be really dejected with themselves to have let the game slip away. They got the start through Parthiv Patel who scored a 50 but apart from him nobody got going. A lot of soft dismissals and false strokes led to their downfall. All is not lost for them as they still have a chance to make it through to the final. They were in a similar position in 2013 but eventually went on to clinch the title and are only team to do so after being on a losing side in Qualifier 1. Let's see what the skippers have got to say...

!

Pune's dominance at the Wankhede stays intact! 3 games they have played here and have come out on top every single time. Today being very special as they are the first team to book a place in this year's final. After gathering the momentum with the bat, scoring 41 in the final 2 overs, their bowlers came out and dragged it further. It was Washington Sundar who was the chief architect in diminishing the chase as he ran through the top order quickly and ended with career-best T20 figures of 3-0-16-3! Thakur was impressive as well scalping three to his name while Unadkat and Ferguson were exceptional with their variations on a slow track. Overall, a complete team performance from them has seen them go through.

Shardul Thakur to Lasith Malinga

SIX! PUNE ARE INTO THE FINAL! Length ball on middle, Malinga goes for the slog and has enough power to clear the fielder at deep mid-wicket. The fielder tries in vain but cannot parry it back into play. Doesn't matter though as PUNE WIN BY 20 RUNS.
