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.
