commentary

Mumbai are off the mark with two points after three straight losses. It was a perfect game for them as captain Rohit said, but BLR have a lot to think. Skipper Kohli - although he made 92 and surpassed Suresh Raina to become the highest run-getter in T20 League history - is livid with the team's show tonight and wants answers. Has called for some serious thinking. BLR will have to be careful now, having lost three out of four games. They have a task on their hand, but they don't have to look far for inspiration with the likes of VK, AB, Baz in the side. That's it from this game then. Join us back in a few hours from now for KOL v RAJ. Goodnight!

Rohit (Man of the Match): "It wasn't the ideal start for us. I thought Umesh bowled in the right areas. The wicket was still soft when I went in. So it was important to spend some time and it was better to bat with the dew coming in. It was a perfect game for us. We lost the last three games, but we were playing good cricket. I think me batting at 4 gives the balance to the side and gives the new guys the freedom to bat at the top. It is important to finish off games. But I will do whatever the team wants in terms of batting position to get the right balance for the side. Lewis is exciting to watch. Once he gets a start, it's hard to bowl at him."

Krunal Pandya - "All the four games, we were upto the mark and it were close games. Finally, we have won. Want to continue the winning form. Impressed with Mayank, and if we both can bowl eight good overs, we can restrict the opposition. It's a good sign for the team."

Virat Kohli's rarely looked this dejected/angry - "It was a good game of cricket as far as Mumbai were concerned. I don't feel like wearing this (orange cap) right now because it really doesn't matter. We got off to a great start but we just threw it away, and need to reflect on our dismissals. We knew there would be a little bit of dew, we needed not your 40-45s but 80-85s. In the end it was all about making sure that the run-rate doesn't take a hit; credit to Mumbai though, they bowled really well. We didn't get any chances, we bowled in the areas we thought were good but they counter-attacked well. When you have your backs against the wall you do come out with a performance like this and that's what they did. Even after they were two wickets down they showed resilience like good teams do. We tried our hardest but we just couldn't get wickets in the middle stages."

Mayank Markande - "I am really glad to get the purple cap again. Really feels nice to compete with world class bowlers like Narine and Woakes. Yes, he (pointing to Krunal beside him) helps a lot both during a match and in the nets. It's been really good."

Amazing how this game turned around. Umesh Yadav got the best of starts for BLR taking two wickets off the first two balls of the game, but MUM believed and the captain stepped up big time. Evin Lewis was brilliant with the way he counter-attacked and BLR never came back from that. Ro just missed a hundred, while the rest chipped in with cameos. BLR needed a good start. They got off to a pretty decent start actually, but 2 wickets in a space of 4 balls from McClenaghan derailed the chase. Captain Kohli fought a lone battle. He was hurt by the lack of intent from his team-mates, the anger was evident with a few shots that he played, and towards the end he was so frustrated that he was just going through the motions.

Look at that slow walk of Kohli. He's a disappointed man. Disappointed that he got no support from the other batters. 214 was a stiff ask, but hey, this is Wankhede. Small boundaries, lovely pitch, dew and the it's a nightmare for bowlers under pressure. Better batting would have definitely taken BLR very close if not over the line. But full credit to Mumbai.

Bumrah to Kohli, no run, oopsy! This has smashed into Kohli's right thigh and he's limping in pain. Not the kind of finish he would have expected.

Bumrah to U Yadav, out Caught by Rohit!! Another one. Catching practice. They are checking for the no-ball. Oh no! More than half of his foot is inside the line. Why check that? It was a shortish delivery, Umesh slices the slog and skies it to cover. Hang on, the replay looks like it's not the wicket taking delivery. Umesh is at the non-striker's end.

Markande to Sarfaraz Khan, out Stumped!! Blind swinging from Sarfaraz Khan.

Sarfaraz Khan st (sub)Tare b Markande 5(6) [4s-1]

Markande to Kohli, 2 runs, is Sarfaraz Khan home? Kohli nudges to mid-wicket, pushes the youngster for the second and hey, you got to drag the bat in. Schoolboy stuff. He's plonked the bat inside the crease, luckily the bat was grounded just before the stumps were lit up

Markande to Kohli, SIX, that's classic Virat Kohli for you! Flighted delivery just outside off stump, Kohli lofts the inside-out drive from the middle of the bat, hits the rope on the full. Stand and deliver stuff

Mayank Markande [3.0-0-15-0] is back into the attack

Time-out time! The body language from the BLR team suggests that they are down. 120 off 42 is mathematically doable but they know it's going to be tough for even the best of batsmen. Mumbai will want to record a big win improve their net run rate.

12.6

Bumrah to Sarfaraz Khan, FOUR, he's guided this in the gap past backward point and it's running away for four. It was the slower delivery outside off stump, Sarfaraz gets the placement right by opening the bat face at the last moment

Bumrah to Sarfaraz Khan, no run, what was that from Sarfaraz Khan? Slower delivery outside off stump, Sarfaraz was down on one knee to scoop the ball and then he changes his mind and lets the ball pass. Looked funny and Bumrah absolutely loved it

Aditya Tare walks out as the substitute keeper

12.4
1
Bumrah to Kohli, 1 run, pulled uppishly and that's brilliantly half-stopped by the man diving at short mid-wicket. Oh dear! The throw has bounced awkwardly from nowhere and smashed into Ishan Kishan's face. He's not wearing a helmet. He's in serious pain. The physio and the team-mates rush to him. He's on the ground. Hope he's alright. Hit him side of the face, just missed the right eye luckily as he turned his head. Hardik Pandya, who threw the ball, looks puzzled. Ishan Kishan walks off. Swelling near the right eye. Gets a roar from the crowd as he is up on his feet. That's a very nasty injury, but in a way, thankfully missed the eye. The ball just hit the rough patch on the side of the pitch and jumped steeply at him

Pretty dull faces in the BLR camp

Krunal Pandya to Corey Anderson, out Caught by (sub)Duminy!! Anderson departs for a blob. Not a sweet T20 League 2018 debut for the Kiwi all-rounder. Pandya gets two in two. Slowish and lured Anderson into a big shot. The batsmen went low and slogged, no timing whatsoever and he ended up hitting it straight to deep mid-wicket. Pandya is chuffed, so are rest of his team-mates. BLR digging a hole for themselves here. Corey Anderson c (sub)Duminy b Krunal Pandya 0(1)

Krunal Pandya to Corey Anderson, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Corey Anderson, left handed bat, comes to the crease

1
Krunal Pandya to Mandeep, wide, out Stumped!! Once bitten twice shy. No mistake whatsoever from Ishan Kishan this time. Mandeep has been hokey-pokeyed for the second time and no repreive on this occasion. Very smart from Krunal; Mandeep announced his intent of stepping out early. Krunal sees it and lasers it wide of off. Very similar to the last over, Ishan Kishan doesn't panic, grabs it cleanly and whips the bails off. BLR lose their third wicket. Mandeep st Ishan Kishan b Krunal Pandya 16(14) [4s-1]

Markande to Mandeep, wide, drama. Ishan Kishan fluffs a stumping chance. Superb deception from Markande, saw the batsman step out and rifled it well wide of off, forcing Mandy to reach. Mandeep threw his bat and almost lost his balance which made him lose momentum. Ishan Kishan failed to collect it cleanly and grants Mandeep a lifeline

Krunal Pandya [1.0-0-13-0] is back into the attack

Direct-hit at the non-striker's end and third umpire has been pressed into service. Mandeep was struggling and looks like he has just made it in. Some iota of his bat is inside the crease. "The benefit of doubt should go to the batsman," reckons Sunil Gavaskar. And it's NOT OUT.

Time-out taken. Brilliant comeback by MUM after that initial onslaught from QDK and Kohli. Thanks to McClenaghan, who dented BLR's prospects with two crucial scalps. Uphill task ahead for the visitors. Kohli remains the key and the duplicate to this keyless entry system.

McClenaghan to de Villiers, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! de Villiers perishes. Huge blow for BLR. Two wickets in the over and McClenaghan is turning it on here. Seemed like a certain ploy and de Villiers fell into the trap. Dug in short and there was a fielder positioned at deep mid-wicket. AB forgets, goes for the pull, doesn't bother to keep it down either. Flat and straight to Hardik, who cupped it. Straight down the gullet, didn't even had to move there. MUM on top. de Villiers c Hardik Pandya b McClenaghan 1(2)

McClenaghan to de Kock, out Bowled!! And call it the text commentator's curse. McClenaghan snuffs out de Kock and Wankhede erupts. Nothing shot from de Kock. It was full and a semblance of tail back in. The batsman stepped forward and swung, completely down the wrong line and enough gap for the ball to sneak through to knock the off-stump. BLR lose their first wicket. de Kock b McClenaghan 19(12) [4s-2 6s-1]

McClenaghan to de Kock, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

BLR have begun alright. Going at 10 per over. MUM will be desperate to see the back of these two.

Mustafizur to de Kock, SIX, de Kock has found his bearings. Rahman errs, bowls it full on QDK's strong zone. Just bent forward and lifted it through the line. Ah, all timing as it sails over the ropes over mid-on

Mustafizur to Kohli, 1 run, they take the single on this occasion. Rahman cramps Kohli for room with this back of a length delivery on off. Dropped in front of cover and easy single there

3.1
4
Mustafizur to de Kock, FOUR, this wasn't timed as he would've liked, but de Kock will still earn a boundary. The slower delivery from Fizz, de Kock didn't pick it as he was through the shot early. Still managed to get enough wood to place it over mid-on. There's no stopping that

Mustafizur Rahman, left-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

2.6
4
McClenaghan to Kohli, FOUR, su-sweet. Ends the over with a boundary. Juicy half-volley from McClenaghan, well outside off. Kohli isn't sparing those. Leans across, plants his front foot towards the ball and slashes it through extra cover. Beats a crowed off-side field

2.2
0
McClenaghan to Kohli, no run, McClenaghan and MUM fielders are excited but they aren't reviewing this. McClenaghan nearly snuffed out Kohli for the fifth time here. Decked back in from a length, Kohli was caught in amidships because of the spongy bounce. Fails to connect with the nudge and seems like it brushed the thigh pad there. Yup, no bat. Clearly off the thigh pad

Bunny alert: McClenaghan has dismissed Virat Kohli four times in the T20 League.

Krunal Pandya to Kohli, no run, slowish on leg, strangely Kohli's offers no shot and takes it on the thigh pad

Krunal Pandya to Kohli, FOUR, uppish and through Pollard's hands at short mid-wicket. Trademark Kohli whip. Clears his front leg and swats it off his pads. Pollard leaps but in vain. Races away to the boundary at deep mid-wicket

Krunal Pandya to de Kock, 1 run, on the pads, flicked softly through square leg

Krunal Pandya to de Kock, FOUR, is greeted to the crease with a boundary. Flighted on the stumps, de Kock gets and sweeps. Gets it more off the top-edge but it sails over behind square. No-one there and they'll collect a boundary

Krunal Pandya, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack

Oh, surprise. Spin brought in early. Here's Krunal.

Bumrah to Kohli, FOUR, what a shot. Bumrah overdoes, overpitches and that's too easy for Kohli. Gets forward, with a full face of the bat and creams it past mid-on. That boundary will ruin a decent over by Bumrah

Chants of "BLR,BLR" ringing across Wankhede.

Bumrah to Kohli, no run, the inducker from Bumrah, Kohli is rightly behind the line and defends it solidly

Bumrah to de Kock, leg byes, 1 run, slips in a cutter at 112kph. Gains some iffy bounce and knocks de Kock on the thigh pad. Rolls to the leg-side and they sneak in a leg-bye

Bumrah to de Kock, wide, Bumrah's radar loses signal momentarily. Splays it down leg

Bumrah to de Kock, no run, half-hearted appeal by Bumrah, but he aborts it soon. Full and curved in sharply, de Kock was shuffling across and misses the clip. Is struck on the pad but it's heading down leg

One slip in place

Bumrah to Kohli, 1 run, Kohli is away. Bumrah goes a little wide of off, Kohli opens his bat face, uses the pace and steers it to third man

Bumrah to Kohli, no run, Bumrah starts with an outside off stump channel to test Kohli, who has a sturdy poke with soft hands and guides it with a tilted bat to point

Kohli and de Kock are at the crease. Kohli is on strike. Bumrah will open the attack

We are back already. Righteyoo folks, if BLR's batting is half dramatic as MUM's, we're in for a cracker. The players are out in the middle. QDK has a new opening partner. It's an angry looking Virat Kohli. They need to throw punches in all directions.
