That's all from us tonight. See you tomorrow

Pollard: I went up the order, I enjoy batting at Wankhede, I thought if we could get some sixes off Ashwin in the middle we'd be in the game. I love the ball sailing into the stands. Obviously, Rohit is captain of the team, we have a day game coming up, happy to hand over the captaincy to him

12.18am First game as captain in this league and Pollard produced one of his finest IPL knocks, his highest IPL score, to bring Mumbai within touching distance of a win; a win that looked very unlikely when he had come out to bat, and in the end, Alzarri Joseph, the hero on debut last match held his nerve to take them home. These two teams have made a habit of producing thrillers at this venue but one's got to feel for KL Rahul, who scored his maiden IPL hundred but finished on the wrong side of another cliffhanger between these two teams here in Mumbai

Hardik: Hats off to the legend. One guy who could do this was Kieron Pollard. To be honest, from the situation where we came back from four runs four balls, I thought we had the game

Ashwin: We were a little up and down with out catching. It was a par score, with the dew falling, Shami was excellent but we couldn't get through. Sam was obviously under the pump, it's his first experience in the IPL in such a situation, he'll definitely get richer with the experience. I thought we could have been steelier with resolve, this is a very challenging ground, we are looking forward to getting back home.

Rajpoot to Joseph, 2 runs, full toss on middle pushed down the ground, past the bowler, and the long-on can't get around it in time to stop them from turning for the second. Mumbai have stolen this after looking like absolute certainties to take it midway through the over and briefly losing it with Pollard's dismissal against the run of play

Rajpoot to Chahar, 1 run, full toss on middle, swung away to deep midwicket but only a single

Rajpoot to Joseph, 1 run, yorker on off, squeezed away to long-on and they all they get is one

Rajpoot to Joseph, no run, full toss on middle, the only thing in its favour is that it is fast and straight and Joseph can only pat it back to the bowler

Rajpoot to Pollard, OUT, short ball outside off and do we have a twists here? Ankit Rajpoot, who looked to have lost the match for his team for all money has had Pollard miscue the pull shot straight to deep midwicket. It was a good short ball, well outside off which meant Pollard had to drag it around and couldn't time or place it well enough
