Mumbai 153/7 (20 Ovs) RR: 7.65 | Bangalore won by 14 runs

commentary

Another loss for Mumbai and they join Delhi - just 2 wins in eight games. The equation for them is to win all the matches from here. Rohit's MUM have done it in the past. Can they do it again? We'll find out. On the other hand, there's the oxygen for BLR. They have won a match without their star performer - AB de Villiers. His comeback will only boost their line-up. The action moves to Delhi tomorrow - where a struggling Delhi host Rajasthan. Join us there. Until then, it's a goodbye from all of us down here.

Southee, Man of the Match: Nice to come here and play. Nice to finally get a win on the board. We've come close in the last two games. There was a little bit of swing which you've never seen here in the earlier games. I think we scraped through to a good score. Last over was crucial. Colin's innings gave us the momentum. We still had to bowl well to defend this score. The belief's still good. We have come close. Nice to get over the line. It's nice to get a win under the belt.

Kohli: Jeez, we needed that win. Very important win at such an important stage of the tournament. In the last couple of games, we were picking up. Tonight was an occasion we need that two points. This is the push we needed. We might have spoken about too many things in the past. To the bowlers, we said, 'back your gut feel to bowl yorkers, take your fields.' To confuse them, doesn't help too much. Everyone bowled really well. Umesh's over. Colin's over with the bat. The one over that JP bowled and Manan targeted, that was game-changing. Manan took the game away from them. We needed impact performances to get those two points. We had good intent, results are around the corner. The result went our way. We should take this confidence forward. My wife is here and it's her birthday. This was a little gift for her. It was very important to achieve this two points in front of her.

McCullum: Yeah, feeling good. We were close in the last few games and didn't cross the line. Sometimes losing is a habit just as winning can be. But nice to give back something to the crowd who have been outstanding and have backed us. I thought we bowled well last time, just didn't finish the job at the end. Today, Siraj and Umesh were outstanding, they kept bowling good line and lengths and made tough for the batsmen, Tim Southee as well. They are starting to realize the structure now and the plans are starting to get better. The skills were superb, I thought they were excellent with the use of the slower balls, the cross-seamers were effective and hit the deck hard. We were under some pressure, but I thought we were desperate in the field, kept egging each other and hopefully results will follow. We will celebrate tonight, take the plane for the next match and try and do the same once again.

Rohit Sharma: It is disappointing to be on the losing side. We got ourselves to blame though. Didn't play smart cricket which was required, losing wickets in the powerplay didn't help, that's where we lost the game. We wanted to keep ticking with the scoreboard, partnerships would have helped us. Credit to BLR, they bowled really well, it was a tough wicket and they kept us guessing all the time and it made things very difficult for us. I think our bowling was good, we would have taken 167 at the start of play, but we could have kept them down to some 10-15 runs short. We came back well after that partnership between Kohli and McCullum, but as I said, we made silly mistakes, it shouldn't happen at this stage of the tournament and that cost us. We still need to have the belief in ourselves, we can't lose hope, need to win almost all our games now. We need to keep to the basics, I feel we still have a good chance to qualify for the knock-out phase of the tournament.

Kohli can finally afford a smile on his face. He needed this win badly, the fans needed this. This is BLR's third win in this season and all three have come here at the Chinnaswamy. This wasn't the typical Chinnaswamy track and a score of 167 has been defended. The seamers set it up and they finished it in style. Southee removed Kishan in the very first over and Umesh Yadav picked two in two deliveries, which put the visitors on the back foot. Their overseas batsmen - didn't contribute much as Pollard fell to a lazy stroke and Duminy to lethargic running. It was up to the Pandya brothers to take their team over the line, but they couldn't - courtesy BLR's death bowling. Yes, you read that right. Credit to Southee and Siraj, who managed to execute their plan with yorkers and cutters. They conceded just 20 off the last three overs. And, don't forget Colin de Grandhomme. A match-changing cameo with the bat towards the end and he was outstanding in the field. Presentations coming up..

Southee to Cutting, SIX, BLR win by 14 runs! All Southee had to do was bowl a legitimate delivery. He does that. Overpitched delivery, Cutting gets underneath the ball by crouching and lofts it handsomely over long-off
19.5

Southee to Cutting, no run, right in the blockhole, Cutting can't do much. Looks to flick and inside-edges it onto his pad. Dies down adjacent to the pitch

Southee to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Kohli!! A wicket. That's gold at this stage. A distraught Hardik walks off. It was the slower delivery and Hardik decided to clear long-on. Doesn't time it as he got it off the toe-end. Kohli runs in from long-on, puts in the dive to snaffle it. That's a screamer from the skipper. Hardik Pandya c Kohli b Southee 50(42) [4s-5 6s-1]

Southee to Hardik Pandya, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Six balls remain, 25 needed!

18.6

Siraj to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, another one - yorker length, Hardik can't get underneath that ball. Drilled to long-off. The single brings up his fifty as well
18.4
0
Siraj to Hardik Pandya, no run, this is top-notch bowling from Siraj. Wide yorker and Hardik misses it. Stays leg-side of the ball and looks to thump it downtown. Connects with thin air

Ben Cutting, right handed bat, comes to the crease

18.3
0
Siraj to Krunal Pandya, out Caught by Mandeep!! That's a strange dismissal. Krunal tries to scoop and he's caught at backward point. You read that right. Cross-seamed fullish ball on the stumps, Pandya went towards off and crouched low to go over short fine. The leading edge balloons to Mandeep at backward point. Krunal Pandya c Mandeep b Siraj 23(19) [4s-1 6s-1]

Siraj to Krunal Pandya, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

28 off 10!

18.2

18.1
1
Siraj to Krunal Pandya, 1 run, Siraj gets away with a full toss. Krunal looks to hack across the line and misses. They nab a run and that's been given as runs. Oh, wait.. BLR review. Massive inside edge Erasmus was right. BLR lose their review

Two overs remain, 30 to win

17.6
1
Southee to Krunal Pandya, 1 run, excellent over. Just 5 off it! Good field placement as well. After bowling two yorkers, Southee shortens his length, carved over extra cover, Baz runs across to his left from deep extra to mop that up

16.6
4
Siraj to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, doesn't quite get it off the middle, but Hardik has got enough wood there. Fullish ball outside off, enough room to free the arms. Goes hard and lofts over extra cover. A boundary to end the over - 10 off it
16.5
1

15.6
4
de Grandhomme to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, 17 off the over! There's the big over for Mumbai. Poor ball from de Grandhomme. The batsman backed away and the bowler followed him, by dishing one on the pads. Easy pickings for Hardik, who tickles it very fine
15.5
2

15.4
4
de Grandhomme to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, edged and four! Mumbai won't mind. Length ball, Hardik gets a healthy inside edge looking to punch through the off-side. The keeper is up and there is no one to stop that

15.2
0
de Grandhomme to Krunal Pandya, no run, shortish ball just outside off, Krunal tries the late-dab, misses. He is miffed with himself
15.1
6
de Grandhomme to Krunal Pandya, SIX, that's a massive hit. Should calm the nerves in the Mumbai dug-out. The cutter, picked by Krunal, stays deep in his crease to swing it high and over deep mid-wicket
14.6
1
U Yadav to Krunal Pandya, 1 run, that's a weird way to tackle shortish balls. Hit-the-deck-hard ball on the ribs, following a backing away Krunal. The batter somehow managed to tuck it to deep mid-wicket
14.5
2
U Yadav to Krunal Pandya, 2 runs, length ball wide of off, Krunal stays deep and swings his bat hard. The bat turns at the point of impact and all the lefty could do was slice it over covers off the toe end. Vohra, in the deep, over-runs, but no damage done. Just two
14.4
1
U Yadav to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, decks in from a length and Hardik is cramped for room. Cross-batted to extra cover and Chahal has a shy at the keeper's end. Kohli is not happy with that throw. Not costly

14.1
1
U Yadav to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, full on leg, flicked away to deep backward square leg. Tailed in a tad, did that ball from Umesh

Umesh Yadav [3.0-0-23-2] is back into the attack

Time-out! The equation - 68 runs in 36 balls. We move towards that phase where BLR struggle. The Pandya brothers are destructive and Cutting is yet to come. Wickets will do the trick for BLR. Mumbai, on the other hand, will look to take it as deep as possible. They have a habit of taking matches to the last over. Final over for Umesh. Baz has a word with him.. Perhaps, more than a word. Fine leg is inside the circle.

13.6
1
de Grandhomme to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, stands tall to force the length ball to sweeper cover. de Grandhomme is doing a good job here. Keeping things tight
13.5

13.2
0
de Grandhomme to Hardik Pandya, no run, inside edge saves Hardik. Looked to punch and got an inside edge onto his pad. The length ball came in with the angle
13.2
5
de Grandhomme to Hardik Pandya, 5 wides, there's the pressure-releaser. Horrible ball from Colin de Grandhomme. Probably, the cutter, errs in line, the keeper has no chance and the ball runs away to the fine leg fence. Bonus runs
13.1
0
de Grandhomme to Hardik Pandya, no run, short ball and Hardik is surprised by the pace. He is late on his pull and cops a blow on the back shoulder. A slight delay. He is fine to resume
12.6
4
Chahal to Krunal Pandya, FOUR, horror ball to finish his spell. Short and down the leg-side, Krunal waits for it and swivel-pulls it over the leg-slip fielder. 4-0-23-0!
12.5
1
Chahal to Hardik Pandya, leg byes, 1 run, an appeal for lbw and there's a long chat between the bowler and the keeper. Sanity prevails - no review. Hardik missed the sweep against this away-turner. That's definitely missing off. Plenty of turn on this wicket
12.4
0
Chahal to Hardik Pandya, no run, that's a peach! Quicker leg-break that pitched around leg and turned past the outside edge of Hardik, who was looking to block

11.6
1
de Grandhomme to Duminy, out Duminy Run Out!! 1 run completed. That was a rocket throw from Umesh Yadav. And, Duminy was probably lethargic. Doesn't put the dive and pays the price for it. Was a short of length delivery just outside off and that was forced through point off the back foot. Umesh runs across from sweeper cover, fires a bullet and QDK makes no mistake. Umesh has one of the best arms. Duminy run out (U Yadav/de Kock) 23(29) [4s-3]

de Grandhomme to Duminy, THAT'S OUT!! Run Out!!

Duminy wants the second and he has to rush. Good throw and QDK is quick to take off the bails. Is he in? No. He isn't. OUT flashed on the big screen and the crowd go berserk. Five down

Washington Sundar, right-arm off break, comes into the attack

Nothing much to differentiate the two sides at this stage. BLR were 62/2 and MUM have lost two more wickets. But they know what needs to be done. Here is the other spinner - Sundar and Kohli gives him a leg slip

There is a slip in place and he tries to glide it past him, off the shoulder of the bat and de Kock dives forward to pouch that. Pollard c de Kock b Siraj 13(13) [4s-1]

6.2
0
Chahal to Pollard, no run, dropped! de Kock has put one down. Should have been taken with the standards he sets. Pollard goes for a dab even with a slip in place, the ball takes a deflection and de Kock can only get a glove on that. UltraEdge shows a big spike
6.1
0
Chahal to Pollard, no run, yes turn for Chahal. Fraction short in length and it turns square. Pitches on middle and ends up outside off, Pollard was shaping to play it off the back foot and aborted at the last second

Yuzvendra Chahal, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack

Timeout! BLR would be happy with the powerplay but they will know that Mumbai bat deep. So they cannot afford to relax at any point. As for the visitors, they need one big partnership to get them back in this game and this pair is doing that for now. Will BLR spinners get the same amount help as their counterparts? We'll soon find out.. Here is Chahal

5.6
5
U Yadav to Pollard, 5 runs, bonus runs for MUM. Sloppy from BLR. Where was the back up? Umesh surprises Pollard with a very full delivery, a squeezed out drive to mid-off and McCullum has a shy at the bowler's end, misses and the backing up is very poor
5.5
0
U Yadav to Pollard, no run, bumper and Pollard decides to take it on, the line was outside off and Pollard was trying to fetch that, well away from the bat and the big man checks if it is a wide. Only gets one for the over from the umpire

4.3
2
Siraj to Duminy, 2 runs, mistimed pull gives Duminy a couple. The ball didn't arrive as he expected and hence didn't get the timing on the pull shot, no one at mid-wicket and by the time Umesh tidied up from mid-on, the duo had scampered back
4.2
0
Siraj to Duminy, no run, angled in and Duminy can't turn it into the gap on the on-side, to the left of Siraj

Mohammed Siraj, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

Last season Mumbai found themselves in almost the same situation as Badree took a hat-trick and rocked the visitors early, but it was the pair of Pollard and Krunal who bailed them out of trouble. The big man is out in the middle and he has a fascination to this ground. Can he do it for MUM?

STAT: Eighth golden duck for MUM this season. Second in the season for Rohit

U Yadav to Pollard, no run, short of length around off, Pollard stabs it watchfully into the off-side. Ends a terrific over from Umesh. He has certainly given BLR more than a chance to defend this total

U Yadav to Duminy, leg byes, 1 run, round the wicket and angled into the left-hander, Duminy is hurried for pace and is late on the flick, off the thigh pad and into the leg-side, for a leg-bye

U Yadav to Pollard, 1 run, the ploy is simple to Pollard - bowl it short, this time the ball does not bounce as much and Pollard tucks it backward of square leg, there is a leg gully in place as well for the all-rounder

U Yadav to Pollard, no run, wow! Pollard takes a blow on the body. What was he doing there? Walked towards Umesh to counter the swing and the fast bowler shortens the length, bangs it in and surprises Pollard, straight onto the right shoulder. That would sting. He walked right into it, did Pollard

Kieron Pollard, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Umesh on a hat-trick.

U Yadav to Rohit, out Caught by de Kock!! Absolute jaffa! The roof is coming down at the Chinnaswamy. Rohit is gone for a duck. Mumbai's talisman. Their saviour is gone without troubling the scorers. Huge moment in the game. But credit to Umesh. He's got it spot on after a forgettable first over. Shortens the length and nips in sharply, Rohit is on the hop to negate, done in by the movement, the ball catches the inner shoulder of the bat and de Kock flies across to his left to pouch that. Brilliant take from the keeper and he straightaway asked Kohli to go for the review. Rohit c de Kock b U Yadav 0(1)

U Yadav to Rohit, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Rohit Sharma, right handed bat, comes to the crease

de Kock is absolutely convinced Rohit has nicked one behind. Umpire Nitin Menon didn't think so. BLR review. Legal delivery. Big spike on the UltraEdge as the ball is near the shoulder of the bat. OUT!

U Yadav to Suryakumar Yadav, out Lbw!! Mumbai retain the review though. Horrible shot from Yadav. That made it easy for the umpire. Planted his front foot across and tried to whip the incoming delivery over the on-side, struck around the kneeroll, the impact was in question but umpire Nitin Menon thought it was in-line with the stumps. Ball-tracking shows it to be just in-line with off-stump and the ball was kissing the stumps. Suryakumar Yadav lbw b U Yadav 9(9) [4s-2]

U Yadav to Suryakumar Yadav, THAT'S OUT!! Lbw!!

Mumbai review: Long chat between Yadav and Duminy. The former reviews an LBW decision. Fair delivery. That looked dead to the naked eye. No bat involved as per UltraEdge. Impact - umpire's call. Wickets - umpire's call. Yadav has to go.

Southee to Duminy, no run, cross-seamer and Duminy is beaten comprehensively. Three in a row. Excellent bowling this from Southee. Dragged the length back after being struck for a boundary, back of a length angled across the southpaw and Duminy is left feeling for the ball, beaten on the outside edge

Southee to Duminy, no run, more like it from Southee. On a length and shaping away outside off, Duminy aims for a loose drive away from the body and is beaten on the outside edge, so close to nicking that

Kohli comes in at slip

Southee to Duminy, no run, extra bounce. Duminy is surprised by that. Might have been a cross-seamer from Southee, gripped the surface and went past the tentative steer from Duminy, he was undone by the bounce

Southee to Duminy, FOUR, he is looking in ominous touch. Nothing much wrong with the delivery. Just a wee bit of width offered on the full delivery and Duminy cashes in, opens the bat face and nails the square drive through the off-side field

No slip for Duminy

Southee to Duminy, wide, drifts down leg and Duminy can't meet with the flick, too wide for him. BLR need to be more disciplined with the ball, second wide already concedced in the innings

U Yadav to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, poor over from Umesh. Didn't get it right for the right-hander or Duminy. Straying on the pads and it is easy pickings for Yadav, clipped over square leg to end the over with a boundary

U Yadav to Duminy, 1 run, back of a length and closer to off, Duminy drops it with soft hands in front of slip and Yadav is off, makes it in comfortably beating an under-arm throw from Kohli

U Yadav to Duminy, FOUR, Umesh is not getting his length right, this time erred in line as well, plenty of width for Duminy to work with and he slaps it crisply through cover-point, the ball traveled quickly to the fence

Southee to Ishan Kishan, out Bowled!! Crackerjack of a delivery. Just the start BLR would have talked about in their small huddle before the chase. Very similar to the wicket Kishan got out to Umesh in the reverse fixture. Kishan walks out of the crease to counter the swing, doesn't get to the pitch, the ball nips back in to go through the bat-pad gate, struck off and middle. Kishan was looking to to flick it into the on-side after stepping out. Ishan Kishan b Southee 0(1)

Southee to Ishan Kishan, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Southee to Suryakumar Yadav, 1 run, dropped! Tough chance, but BLR need to take the half chances as well to make a match out of this. The three quarter length from Southee, Yadav is squared up as he looks to turn it into the on-side, the thickish outside edge flies to the right of Vohra at slip, he dives full length and gets a fingertip on it, parried away to third man. Those need to stick. More importantly Kohli moved himself away from slip and let Vohra field there after the slight fumble

Southee to Suryakumar Yadav, no run, beaten! That is the perfect length. The Test match length from Southee. Good length ball in the corridor around off, Yadav had to play at that and the outswinger leaves him in no man's land. Beaten neck and crop on the outside edge

Southee to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR, there's the boundary Yadav has been looking for. Southee pitches it up and it was right on the driveable length, Yadav obliges with a cracking drive, pierced the crowded off-side field and gets off the mark in style

Southee to Suryakumar Yadav, no run, Southee still searching for swing and landing it on a fuller length, shade too full this time and Yadav squeezes the drive to cover-point, a slight fumble by Vohra but no single stolen

Southee to Suryakumar Yadav, no run, nice shape on the outswinger, pitched it up and got it to curl away, Yadav without much footwork drives it with an open bat face, straight to Mandeep at backward point

Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan are at the crease. Suryakumar Yadav is on strike. Southee will open the attack
