Mumbai Indians (MI) came close but failed to go the distance and win their seventh IPL match on the trot as they lost to Rising Pune Supergiant by three runs at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday night. It seems the Pune team is Mumbai's weak spot as they had lost to them in the first match too! While Mumbai restricted Pune to 160/6 to set up an achievable target, they lost wickets in quick succession before captain Rohit Sharma's 30th IPL half century, the first of the season, saw them close the gap. Ben Stokes and Imran Tahir's economical bowling turned the game around to ruin Sachin Tendulkar's birthday party.

Earlier, MS Dhoni fail to emulate his heroics from the previous match and never got going before being dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah, The most expensive foreign player, Ben Stokes' lean patch with the bat continued as he was sent packing by Mitchell Johnson. In the end, Manoj Tiwary provided a late flourish to help Pune post a challenging total. Karn Sharma and Bumrah took two wickets apiece while Johnson and Harbhajan chipped in with one each. (SCORECARD)

Man of the Match, Ben Stokes says that is going quite well with the ball. Though, he's disappointed with his performance with the bat. Applauds his guys for playing really well. Reckons that his slower balls are coming off nicely and the pitches are conducive to it. Mentions that this is his first outing in this tournament and he is enjoying a lot.

!

Pune skipper, Steven Smith says he's happy with the win and credits his boys for performing well under pressure. Mentions that the wicket played the same over 40 overs and the ground conditions were better than he expected. Adds that they kept picking wickets through the middle period and that worked for them. (On what he told Jaydev Unadkat before the last over) Replies he told him to back himself and it was great that he got that wicket which helped them get over the line.

!

Mumbai skipper, Rohit Sharma says that it is disappointing to lose after getting so close. Feels dejected by the fact that he could not finish it. Applauds his bowlers for restricting the Pune batsmen under 160. Reckons that the pitch was dry and the spinners from both sides bowled really well. Praises both his spinners for bowling well. Mentions that they will want to forget this game and concentrate on the future games. Appreciates Jaydev Unadkat for his brilliant last over and says that picking up a wicket on the first ball always helps. Ends by saying that he tried but is really disappointed to not finish things off.

Mumbai will feel disappointed they couldn't get over the line. They were cruising at one point when Rohit Sharma (who completed his fifty) and Kieron Pollard were smashing it around. But, as it has been the case in most games, one wicket can change the complexion of the entire game and that's what happened to the hosts today. It's a bump in the road for them, something they'll like to forget and put behind them.

!

With a score of 160 to defend, Pune came out and bowled beautifully right from the start. They got the wickets up top and cramped Mumbai for room in the middle. The Rohit-Pollard partnership seemed like it would take Mumbai home, but the West Indian's dismissal turned the game on its head. And special mention has to be given to Ben Stokes for his stupendous bowling performance. He kept things tight and bagged 2 wickets and showed up at the big moments. Jaydev Unadkat too was a little expensive but he bowled a brilliant last over and the spinners, Imran Tahir and Washington Sundar, were instrumental in keeping the run flow in check.

!

A big, big victory for Pune! They're back to winning ways and have got their third win on the trot. What will make this sweeter is the fact that they've beaten Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium and won both the derby matches. Brilliant stuff!

Jaydev Unadkat to Harbhajan Singh

SIX! That's hit away into the stands but it's come too late. Harbhajan Singh heaves this length ball over wide long on for a maximum. But, it's the visiting team that has emerged victorious here. PUNE WIN BY 3 RUNS!

!

Mitchell Johnson is the next man in.

Jaydev Unadkat to Harbhajan Singh

OUT! RUN OUT! Another wicket now. Fuller delivery outside off, Harbhajan Singh drills it through the covers. Ben Stokes out in the deep gets to the ball and fires a throw at the bowler's end. The batsmen are off for the second run and Unadkat takes the bails off. Replays show McClenaghan to be well short of the crease. If no illegal deliveries are bowled, Pune will win this game.
