Phew! Yet another humdinger! They just keep coming. This season is turning out to be fantastic. Go and take some rest, folks as Tuesday will bring yet another cracking contest. Hang on, it's already Tuesday. Do join us in the evening at 1930 IST (1400 GMT) for the clash between Delhi and Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi. Cheers!

MAN OF THE MATCH IS AB DE VILLIERS! He is not available to collect the award as he has also run out of gas after participating in this humdinger. A few questions have been asked to Kohli on his behalf. The Bangalore skipper says that AB is coming after a long break. Adds that some of the shots he played were outstanding and praises his glovework as well. Smiles and shares that AB doesn't watch a lot of cricket matches and enjoys his life off the field.

Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says that he has no words right now and calls it a rollercoaster game. Adds that they batted really well to get past 200 and then praises his bowlers for doing an outstanding job in the beginning. Credits Mumbai for playing patiently in the middle overs and waiting for the dew to take its affect. Mentions that they tried to execute the plans and talks about the fielding which needs improvement. Feels that they need to capitalize on these little things in the field, pointing towards the dropped catches. On batting in the Super Over, Kohli replies that he thought Bumrah will be bowling and he wanted to use the longer boundary by running twos. Smiles and says it was a great game for the audience but not for the captains involved. Wants his team to take lessons from this loss and learn how to close the games better. Kohli is sounding happy with the balance of his team after making several changes in this match. Has a word of praise for Navdeep Saini as well and calls his bowling in the Super Over outstanding.

Stay tuned for the remaining part of the presentation...

For Mumbai, this match was done and dusted very early. After a troubled start, they never managed to deal with the required run rate which kept on increasing alarmingly. But credit should be given to Ishan Kishan for the way he handled pressure in his first game of the season. With Kieron Pollard for company, the pair took things calmly at the start and it was the 17th over bowled by Adam Zampa where they went berserk. After accumulating 27 runs, they got the self-belief and the overs that followed brought them plenty of runs. Navdeep Saini did bowl an excellent penultimate over, giving away 12 runs and handing 18 runs to Isuru Udana to defend but the Sri Lankan ended up spending them all in the final over.

Let's get this match described in a nutshell. Bangalore got what they wanted to do as Rohit inserted them in. Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal provided them with the perfect platform and despite losing their way in the middle, AB de Villiers stood tall and punished the Mumbai bowlers at the backend to take Bangalore over 200. In reply, as we mentioned earlier, Bangalore turned on the heat with Washington Sundar bowling one of the most economical spells in the League. They maintained good pressure till the 15th over and this is where the match turned on its head.

The best bowler of the show tonight for Bangalore, Washington Sundar comes up for a chat. Says that he had to do the job and is happy to be a part of such a high-pressure game. Adds that he just wanted to contribute with the ball and doing it against Mumbai gives him a lot of confidence. Praises Saini for doing well in the Super Over. Tells that this win really means a lot to them as they were cruising at one stage and Mumbai pulled it off from there and they didn't want to go back to the room losing this match as they really did well with the bat.

Mumbai skipper, Rohit Sharma, calls it a great game of cricket. Praises Pollard for his batting. Regrets that they didn't get the start and couldn't get back from there. On 90 needed off the last 5 overs, Rohit replies that with Pollard being there anything can happen and they had the belief. Doesn't want to take away anything from Bangalore as they stuck to their guns. On opting for Hardik instead of Kishan in the Super Over, Rohit informs that Kishan was drained out and not comfortable and Hardik is somebody they trust with the big hitting. On Bumrah, Rohit replies that defending 7 runs you need to have the luck on your side. Adds that they will take a lot of positives from this game.

What appeared to be a straightforward victory for Bangalore has come to them with a lot more effort! They will be happy with two points tonight but will be wondering what more they need to do to defend their totals. Mind you, they were not entirely poor. Dominated the Powerplay and the middle overs as well but then gave it away in the last 5. As has been the case with them, their perennial issue over the years, leaking runs at the death. Once again it was a similar story but they would be relieved with the way Saini bowled in the Super Over.

Ball 6: Jasprit Bumrah to Virat Kohli, FOUR! VICTORY FOR BANGALORE! Bumrah fails to land his yorker this time, it's a full toss, Kohli brings his bottom hand into play and whips it through square leg for the winning runs. Bangalore win the Super Over!

Ball 5: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, 1 run, a pinpoint yorker, de Villiers digs it out off the inner edge. It deflects off his pads to the off side and they cross. 1 needed off 1 ball. If it's a tie again, we will have another Super Over.

Ball 4: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, FOUR! 1 needed for a tie, 2 for a win. Bad bowling by Bumrah with fine leg up inside the ring. He bangs in a short ball on middle, de Villiers attempts to wheel a pull shot but gets a top edge. It flies over the fielder at 45 for a boundary.

Ball 3: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, NOT OUT! AB is safe. Nothing on the Ultra Edge. Flat line. Short delivery on middle and leg, de Villiers tries to pull but fails to connect. Quinton collects and appeals and the finger goes up. AB takes the referral and gets the onfield decision overturned. DOT BALL, more importantly.

We have a review in the Super Over! Has this happened before? De Villiers has been given out caught behind but he wants to review the decision.

Ball 2: Jasprit Bumrah to Virat Kohli, 1 run! Bumrah digs in a short ball around off, Kohli nails his pull shot behind square leg. Boult does well to stop it and release it to the keeper. 6 needed off 4!

Ball 1: Jasprit Bumrah to AB de Villiers, 1 run, a heavy delivery, a low full toss, de Villiers keeps it out down towards long on.

Right then, Bangalore need 8 to win the Super Over. Excellent stuff from Navdeep Saini under pressure. He has delivered for his skipper and now it's up to Bangalore to chase it down and secure a win which they should have earlier. AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli are the batsmen for Bangalore. Jasprit Bumrah has got the ball in hand. Mumbai have never lost a Super Over. Can they do it again?

Ball 6: Ball 6: Navdeep Saini to Hardik Pandya, SWING AND A MISS! Take a bow, Saini. Clever delivery. On a length outside off, probably taking the pace off it. Hardik winds up for a big shot but misses. They steal a bye. MUMBAI END ON 7/1!

Rohit Sharma is in next.

Ball 5: Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, OUT! Pollard holes out! A full toss again, around off, Pollard aims to power it over mid-wicket but fails to clear the longer part of the ground. An easy catch in the deep for Gurkeerat Mann. Mumbai are 6/1!

Ball 4: Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! Misfield in the deep! Saini bowls a low full toss, Pollard gets underneath it and drills it down to long off. The fielder there dives over the ball and allows it through. 6/0!

Ball 3: Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, DOT BALL! Excellent bowling. Fuller and wide outside off, Pollard swings but misses.

Ball 2: Navdeep Saini to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, a length ball on middle, Pandya forces it down the ground to long on.

Ball 1: Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, 1 run, a full length ball wide outside off, Pollard drives it to deep cover.

Time for the Super Over then! You need to get used to this, folks! This season is throwing one exciting game after another. Let's see who Mumbai will choose from their vast power bank of batting. One has to be Kieron Pollard. Will Ishan Kishan be the other one? We are waiting for confirmation. Headache for Bangalore. Who should they bowl? Udana? Sundar? Saini? None guarantee anything. Saini it is, Pollard on strike. Hardik is at the other end.

Can you believe it? Mumbai never looked like coming anywhere near Bangalore's total but they have done it. They have done it again. The depth in their batting is unbelievable and the power-hitters in their ranks, phew, unimaginable. Mumbai required 90 runs off the last 5 and the pair of Pollard and Kishan nearly did it.

I Udana to K Pollard, FOUR! We have a Super Over, folks! Wow, game 10, second Super Over! Whoa! This is incredible. This is unbelievable. Back of the hand short delivery, on middle, Pollard bludgeons his pull shot in front of square leg for a boundary. IT'S A TIE!

Krunal Pandya walks in next! He won't be on strike though.

I Udana to I Kishan, OUT! Kishan is caught on 99! What an innings! Stand and applaud this young man. Credit to Udana for taking the pace off this one. On a length and wide outside off, Kishan heaves it flat over mid-wicket and is caught by Padikkal in the deep. Have the batsmen crossed? 5 needed off the final ball.
I Udana to I Kishan, SIX! Kishan is doing it for Mumbai! Poor delivery, Udana pitches it up and around off, Kishan tonks it over wide long on this time. 5 needed off 2 balls.
I Udana to I Kishan, IN THE AIR... HAS IT CLEARED THE FENCE? NO! IT'S GOING TO BE A CATCH! PUT DOWN... A full toss outside off, Kishan gets hold of it and muscles it towards wide long on. Mann in the deep jumps but it goes through his hands for a biggie. 11 needed off 3 balls.
I Udana to K Pollard, Udana switches to 'round the wicket and follows Pollard down the leg side with a slower bouncer. The West Indian pulls it to deep square leg for a run.
I Udana to I Kishan, SAFE! A slower full ball outside off, Kishan winds up for a big shot and tries to heave it across the line. It comes off the inner half and rolls to square leg. They cross for a run and Kishan has to dive at the other end. The throw comes there and the bowler takes the bails off. They appeal for a run out, the third umpire is referred upstairs and the replays find that the dive has saved Kishan. More importantly for Bangalore, only a run.

Appeal for a run out! They have gone upstairs...

Isuru Udana, the man making his debut in the tournament, has got the massive responsibility to deliver for his side in the final over. Can he do that for his skipper? 19 to win for Mumbai. 18 for a Super Over! Anything less, Bangalore wins!

N Saini to I Kishan, Saini digs in a short ball on middle, Kishan turns inside the crease and pulls it to deeps square leg. A single taken. Under pressure, Saini has done a commendable job, have to say. 19 needed off the last over.
N Saini to I Kishan, SIX! This has gone very high in the air, Kohli thinks he is in with a chance, jumps near the fence but it sails over him. Full toss again, outside off, Kishan is ready for it and powers it in the air and it has got distance too. Clears long off. 20 needed off 7 balls.
N Saini to K Pollard, Another SINGLE! Saini is doing it for Bangalore, bowling a sensational over under pressure. A full toss alright but it's wide outside off, Pollard clobbers it down the ground and long off cuts it off.
N Saini to I Kishan, This is good bowling! Saini bowls it full and on middle, not offering width. Kishan drills it down to long on for just a run. 27 needed off 9 balls. Pollard returns on strike.
N Saini to K Pollard, Only a single! Good result for Bangalore. Saini bowls it short and wide outside off, Pollard throws his bat at it and edges it down to third man. They cross. Mumbai need boundaries.
N Saini to I Kishan, Fuller in length and around off, Kishan goes for a massive heave-ho across the line but ends up dragging it off the inner half of his bat to deep mid-wicket. Only a single and now Pollard is on strike! Kohli has a word with his bowler. 29 needed off 11. Pressure written everywhere.
N Saini to I Kishan, Wide! Saini attempts a slower short ball but it's down the leg side, Ishan tries his best to pull but misses. The umpire stretches his arms.

Who will bowl the penultimate over of the game? Will it be Saini? Will it be Udana? Navdeep Saini it is who has got the responsibility to deliver for Bangalore.

Y Chahal to K Pollard, SIX! Up and over! Fifty up for Pollard in just 20 balls. He has been in amazing form of late and is doing it again. Chahal delivers it flat and short, around middle, Pollard hops back and smacks it over the bowler for a flat biggie. The Mumbai dugout is pumped up. 31 needed off 12 balls!
Y Chahal to I Kishan, Flatter one, around off, Kishan slaps it down the ground to long off for one. 37 needed off 13 balls.
Y Chahal to I Kishan, SIX! Cracking shot of the bat meeting the ball! Loopy and full around off, Ishan finds it in his zone and gives it the full throttle of his bat. Swings his bat firmly and dismisses it over mid-wicket. High and handsome!
Y Chahal to K Pollard, Another good ball. Clever bowling. Chahal doesn't panic. Pulls his length back, drops it on middle, Pollard only drags it to deep mid-wicket for one. 44 needed off 15 and Kishan is on strike!
Y Chahal to K Pollard, Two runs, a good result for Bangalore. Chahal fires it in full, around leg, Pollard heaves it over mid-wicket and hares back for the second run.
Y Chahal to K Pollard, SIX! Pollard doesn't care where you bowl, what you bowl, he just wants to send them out of the park. Loopy and full around off, Kieron goes with the spin and muscles it over extra cover.
A Zampa to K Pollard, Is that dropped? It looks like it. Flighted and full outside off, Pollard goes hard at it but the ball spins away to catch the top edge. It spoons in the air towards backward point, Chahal circles underneath it but fails to hold on. Doesn't even get his hands around. 27 from the over. 53 needed off 18 balls and it's looking very much possible now.

Match 10 of the Indian T20 League sees two giants face off against each other - Bangalore and Mumbai. Captain vs Vice Captain. Virat vs Rohit. Bangalore come into this game with a huge morale loss after their unfashionable loss to Rahul's men earlier. Skipper Kohli has underperformed with the bat so far and given his temperament to shrug off inconsistencies from his end, expect him to bounce back hard. Given that they face the toughest opponents, Bangalore will want to put up their best side. So, will Morris and Zampa make their way in? There is a possibility that Phillipe and Steyn could be rested to accommodate them but let's see. Coming to Mumbai, they have set aside their UAE woes after a comprehensive win over a dangerous Kolkata, who looked menacing on paper. Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav were excellent with the bat in that game and they would be pleased with the way Bumrah came back to form as well. Changes? Well hard to say as they would like to continue the same momentum. But we will have to wait and see. A gripping encounter awaits nonetheless...
