MUM have crept into the top four for the second time this season. It's the Mumbai way. There's still another game to win, but go ahead, bet against them if you're feeling courageous. So that's another thriller appended to the long list of them this year. Until the next one, this is Sagar Chawla signing off on behalf of Rishi Roy, Raju Peethala, Pradeep Krishnamurthy, Nikhil Jadhav and our scorer Sulthan. Good night!

Bumrah, MoM: Clarity is very important when you bowl at the death. That's what I look for. When I'm clear, it's easier to execute. Plans don't change at the last moment (of where to bowl), when you run in. If you're changing at the last moment, that means you're not clear. On a bad day a batsman could hit you, but you have to execute your plans. He's (Rahul) batting really well since the start of the season. Difficult to bowl to someone like that. But I backed myself. Knew his wicket was very important. On this wicket, slower ball was not gripping that much from a good length due to the dew. So I was trying to bowl the dipper and I was able to execute so it was a good day.

Rohit, MUM captain: Holding up nicely. After a win, obviously you feel good. I thought we played a perfect game. Whatever we asked from the boys, they came and delivered in the middle. Never been easy for us since the past few years actually. Knew it was going to be a good pitch. Lost the plot in the middle, could have got 10-15 runs more. Those things happen. Been happening for us a number of times now. Nothing to take away from the bowlers. Always knew it was going to be tough for them to come out and defend against a solid batting line-up. Hats off them to deliver the goods. Pollard has always been a match-winner for us. Leaving him out was a tough decision. We thought now was the time to bring him back. Not to take away from Duminy who hasn't got opportunities. We thought if he's batting down the order, Pollard will be the better option for us. Come the big game, Pollard stands up for us. He was disappointed at being left out. What he did with the bat today, that's what he does. Bumrah has come a long way the past two years. He's worked really hard on his bowling. Not easy to come out and bowl the way he does. He's the one who's taken the responsibility. Always Malinga will be missed, but since he's gone, we've known Bumrah is the one to take the charge. He might not be up there in the wickets column, but what he does for us is very very important. Coming out and bowling at difficult times to a batsman who's set, that's what we require from him.

Kieron Pollard: First of all I would like to thank god. Has been disappointing for me. I have seen, I have heard, brought out something different. Thanks for the people who supported me. My wife came back as well and it brought out some difference in me. When you look at the opportunities, the doubt was never there. Most importantly we came out and put up a good fight. We live to fight another day and that's what matters. Never easy in T20 cricket as I said. Thanks to the victory though as we have 12 points and a better run rate. Our season was at stake and Mitch (McClenaghan) bowled really well in the last over and held it together. Congrats to him, he came out on top. We go to Delhi and see if we come out on top again.

Ashwin, PUN captain: (Hands over the Orange Cap to Rahul, who looks like he'd forego a hundred of those for a win) Pretty blank at this point of time. We were in the chase all along. Pretty professional batting effort compared to the last few games, but didn't work out for us today. It looked like it would be a clinical romp for us, but Bumrah bowled really well at the death, and proved himself once again at the death. I've been in a dugout that has been on the edge always (CHN), but today we had a terrible day, and it's quite sad the way things panned out today, so we need a bit of luck to get through now and depend on other results. We were very abject about it after last game, and we wanted to take the game deep and we wanted our best batsmen to be out there. Kudos to both KL and Aaron, but bad luck it for them it didn't happen today. KL has done exceptionally well throughout, he's the billion-dollar guy for us right now, and he has hardly missed a ball throughout the tournament. He's been in and out of the Indian side as well for the last few months, so he was quite eager to prove himself with this opportunity and he has done extremely well for us today.

12.10am local: A few press-ups from McClenaghan in celebration, Lewis joins him, while Rohit looks to the heavens a relieved man. They stared elimination right in the face with that Rahul-Finch partnership going strong, but as Mumbai do, they held on. Their champion bowler in Jasprit Bumrah was absolutely priceless in turning the game around with a double strike in the 17th over. Before the start of that over, PUN would have fancied getting 42 runs in the final four with nine wickets in the bag. But Bumrah had other ideas. He didn't finish there either. He came back in the penultimate over and won the one-on-one contest with an unstoppable-looking KL Rahul. That was the blow which effectively sealed it for the hosts, with Punjab's hollow middle-order offering next to nothing.

McClenaghan to Manoj Tiwary, FOUR, short of length delivery at the body, swivelled away past short fine leg. But it doesn't matter. MUM clinch this by three runs to stay alive in the tournament
McClenaghan to Axar, byes, 1 run, that's it. McClenaghan seals it. A brave, brave delivery, banging it in short in the knowledge that even top-edges can sail away. But he's banking on the surprise factor, and sure enough, Axar is late on the pull as the ball whistles past him
McClenaghan to Axar, SIX, it's not over yet. Axar has pumped this full toss over the ropes. McClenaghan misses the blockhole, and disappears over mid-wicket

Manoj Tiwary, right handed bat, comes to the crease

McClenaghan to Yuvraj, out Caught by Lewis!! Full ball outside off, Yuvraj slices it straight to Lewis at sweeper cover. He was right back in the crease expecting the fuller length, and was probably aiming to go inside out over extra cover. But the bat twisted in his hands. A fist-pump from McClenaghan. Yuvraj c Lewis b McClenaghan 1(3)

McClenaghan to Yuvraj, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

McClenaghan to Yuvraj, wide, very wide outside off, smartly left alone by Yuvraj. Collects a wide
McClenaghan to Yuvraj, no run, ah, this was in the slot to be swung away, but Yuvraj's so miserably out of touch, he doesn't even get a touch on this as he swings and misses
McClenaghan to Axar, byes, 1 run, oh close. Close call for the umpire. Very wide yorker from McClenaghan which dips under Axar's slog-sweep, but because he had moved across the stumps a touch, the umpire decides to let it go

Mitchell McClenaghan [3.0-0-26-1] is back into the attack

So it's 17 needed off the final over. Not out of question, certainly not at the Wankhede. But Punjab don't have any form batsmen at the crease. Can Yuvraj produce the magic we know he's capable of? Just one more time? It's Axar on strike though. McClenaghan will bowl from round the wicket

Bumrah to Axar, 1 run, brilliant finish from Bumrah, gets it pretty close to the yorker length and denies Axar the space to lift the ball. His drive goes all along the ground for a single to long-off. What an over. What a spell. He's made all the difference
Bumrah to Yuvraj, 1 run, skiddy back of length delivery, cramps Yuvraj up and he's pretty late on the shot too. Clearly not in any rhythm. Skews it off an inside edge into the on-side
Bumrah to Axar, 1 run, low full toss, driven hard to the left of long-off where the fielder (Pollard) has cut the angle nicely to prevent the second run

Yuvraj Singh, left handed bat, comes to the crease

Bumrah to Rahul, out Caught by Cutting!! Bumrah wins the battle with Rahul. He has sent Wankhede rocking. Slower ball, it deceives Rahul as he lofts it right off the toe-end into the grateful hands of Cutting at long-off. So then, is that it for Punjab? Rahul c Cutting b Bumrah 94(60) [4s-10 6s-3]

Bumrah to Rahul, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Bumrah to Axar, 1 run, nails the blockhole once more, another single down the ground
Bumrah to Rahul, 1 run, spot on this time. It was the slower ball from Bumrah which dipped into the blockhole outside off. Rahul jams it down to long-off
Bumrah to Rahul, wide, he sees Rahul backing away and goes for a wide yorker, but misses his line by quite a bit. Called wide by the umpire

This game will come down to Rahul vs Bumrah, it's as simple as that. 23 from 12. Will Mumbai sink or swim?

Cutting to Rahul, 1 run, nice and full from Cutting this time, smeared away through to sweeper cover
Cutting to Rahul, FOUR, he's done it again. He has done it again. Quite brilliant. Slower ball wide of off, and Rahul puts it over short third man's head. He's whisked into the 90s. Some player this lad
Cutting to Rahul, FOUR, oh my, this is extraordinary. The expression on Rohit's face, rather the blankness of it tells the story. Wide leg-cutter from Cutting, Rahul switches his stance and reverse-scoops it over short third man
Cutting to Rahul, FOUR, Rahul gets this away! This is the man standing between MUM and victory. Short of length at the body, Rahul nails the pull backward of square
Cutting to Axar, 1 run, short ball on middle, Axar spoons it off the top-edge as he tries pulling off the front foot. No one inside the ring at mid-wicket though, safe
Cutting to Rahul, 1 run, moved too far away from the line of the ball in an effort to make some room. Has to reach out for it in the end and toe-ends it down to long-off

Ben Cutting, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

Mumbai favourites now, with the crowd behind them and Bumrah still having one more over left

Bumrah to Axar, no run, length ball slanted across off, Axar drives on the up but straight to cover

Axar Patel, left handed bat, comes to the crease

Bumrah to Stoinis, out Caught by Ishan Kishan!! Hoho, Stoinis doesn't have a clue of what's happened. He's too slow. This bumper from Bumrah hurries on from the middle of the pitch, and even as Stoinis tries sitting down to it, he leaves his gloves up there. The ball kisses them enroute to Ishan Kishan. A gamechanger this Bumrah over. Stoinis c Ishan Kishan b Bumrah 1(2)

Bumrah to Stoinis, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Bumrah to Rahul, 1 run, short of length around off, awkwardly jabbed through mid-wicket
Bumrah to Rahul, 2 runs, low full toss around off, creamed through extra cover by Rahul but he's denied the boundary by a desperate Krunal Pandya. This is excellent commitment to the cause. It galvanizes the crowd into "Mumbai Mumbai" chants
Bumrah to Stoinis, 1 run, full ball, Stoinis absolutely smokes this drive back at Bumrah who has nowhere to go. The ball deflects off him towards long-on

Marcus Stoinis, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Bumrah to Finch, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! Outstanding pressure catch from Hardik Pandya in the deep. Finch had skied this up a mile off a top-edge, he had Evin Lewis in the corner of his eye - converging towards him, but Pandya calls for it and takes it much to the delight of the roaring fans at the Wankhede. Length ball, Finch saw the opportunity and cleared his front leg to make the most of it. But his heave came right off the toe-end. Finch c Hardik Pandya b Bumrah 46(35) [4s-3 6s-1]
