Scorer: Raghav MV | Commentator: Nikhil Kalro

8.05pm It's another stellar defence from Daredevils. But Mumbai just buckled under the pressure of a tough chase, just like RCB yesterday! Mumbai weren't able to keep their composure in tough chasing conditions, they lost several wickets at bad times and even with a Cutting cameo that threatened for so long, they fell just short.

Daredevils finish the season strong, and if you look at it, they finished last but just one win behind Mumbai. They finished the season strongly and carry some good memories after a very poor start to the season. They've had a tumultuous season, including a change in leadership forced by results not going their way. Shreyas Iyer took over and immediately made a big impact, but they just didn't have enough to threaten the rest of the teams in a tight playoffs race.

For Mumbai, it was a bit of the same again: a slow start, a good comeback and threatening again to make the playoffs from an improbable scenario. All they needed to do was win today, but their batting faltered and they'll end placed fifth on the points table.

Amit Mishra is the Player of the Match

Patel to Bumrah, OUT, it's all over! Mumbai are eliminated from IPL 2018. A slower ball outside off from Harshal and Bumrah just chips a catch to long-on. Boult takes the catch. Glum, glum faces in the Mumbai dugout as their campaign ends in the final hurdle before the playoffs.

JJ Bumrah c Boult b Patel 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

12 off 4. No 10 and 11. Bumrah. The thick outside edge? Or inside edge?

19.2
W
Patel to Cutting, OUT, and taken! That was a very brave delivery from Harshal and he gets away with it. A short and slow wide delivery outside off. Cutting had walked across, looking to drag the swat over midwicket but because he has to reach out for it so much, he's not in control of the stroke. He picks out deep midwicket. No relay catch this time. A terrific cameo from Cutting though.

BCJ Cutting c Maxwell b Patel 37 (20b 2x4 3x6) SR: 185.00

12 off 5. Just two sixes away now. Iyer and Harshal making changes to their field, but he didn't bowl to it anyway in the first ball. Cover comes up, backward point goes back. Wide yorkers?

19.1

Patel to Cutting, SIX runs, a short delivery down leg and Cutting smashes that for SIX. That's the worst ball you can bowl. Short and slow down leg and Cutting just helps it along over short fine leg for six. WOW. Mumbai still in this.

No singles now. 18 off 6 for Cutting and Mumbai. Three sixes needed? Harshal Patel or Plunkett? Harshal Patel will bowl. Cover goes back. Third man is in.

END OF OVER:
19 | 5 Runs 1 Wkt | MI: 157/8 (18 runs required from 3 balls, RR: 8.26, RRR: 18.00)

Boult to Markande, OUT, he misses a full toss. A full toss on off that is very quick, Markande misses it and the ball knocks off stump

M Markande b Boult 3 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

This is essentially a free hit for Markande, he needs a boundary or two

Boult to Cutting, 1 run, well bowled. A wide yorker ends up as a low and wide full toss, sliced to deep backward point for one.

19 off 8

Boult to Cutting, 2 runs, a full toss outside off is badly hit to deep cover for a couple. Cutting wanted to hit that over long-off but the ball skewed away.

21 off 9 to make the playoffs. An entire season of hardwork comes down to these nine balls. WOW.
