20SIXMohit Sharma to Harbhajan, SIX, Harbhajan finishes it off in style. This was another slower ball, very predictable by Mohit Sharma, Harbhajan was waiting on the back-foot, gets down on one knee and swings it high and over long on for a maximum. Mumbai finish on 173173/8
19.4OUTMohit Sharma to P Kumar, out Bowled!! Wicket number 22 for Mohit Sharma, and Mumbai are making a hash of things in the final overs. Another slower ball from Mohit Sharma, bowled with his fingers rolled across the seam, Kumar backed away and went for the slog over mid-wicket, misses it completely and the ball goes on to crash into the top of middle stump. P Kumar b Mohit Sharma 1(2)166/8
19.1OUTMohit Sharma to Rayudu, out Caught by David Hussey!! Wickets are tumbling here, Sachin looks pensive in the Mumbai dug-out. Mohit Sharma kept this one full and wide outside off as Rayudu gave the charge, he looked to go over cover but can't clear Hussey who leaps and accepts the catch. They look for a no-ball, it was very close but the benefit of doubt goes to the bowler. Mohit Sharma now has 21 wickets, and is the leading wicket taker ahead of Narine and Bhuvneshwar. Rayudu c David Hussey b Mohit Sharma 2(3)164/7
19OUTNehra to Tare, out Caught by du Plessis!! No heroics tonight from Tare, Nehra changed to over the wicket, slips in the slower ball, rolled his fingers across the seam. Tare was looking to go over mid-off, slices the ball in the air and offers a simple catch to Faf running across to his left from mid-off. Tare c du Plessis b Nehra 0(1)164/6
18.4OUTNehra to Pollard, out Caught by Mohit Sharma!! Nehra gets lucky, he has dismissed Pollard off a full toss, this was another yorker that went hopelessly wrong, Pollard was looking to swing the full toss into the deep mid-wicket stands, hits it off the bottom of the bat, gets a lot of height but not the distance. Mohit settles under the skier and accepts it gleefully. Another big wicket for Chennai. Pollard c Mohit Sharma b Nehra 14(8) [4s-1 6s-1]163/5
18.3FOURNehra to Pollard, FOUR, length ball from Nehra, Pollard gets forward and shovels it wide of mid-wicket, no one in the deep, and the ball races away to the fence in a jiffy163/4

18.4FOURBumrah to Raina, FOUR, game over and it's not Dhoni who finishes off things for Chennai, it's Raina who is the man this time. A timely bottom-handed flick wide of Rohit at midwicket and the timing on the shot carries it speedily to the wide long-on fence. The Chennai dugout get up and clap in celebration. Now handshakes as a glum-looking Mumbai side exchange pleasantaries.176/3
17.3OTHERPollard to David Hussey, 1 run, nudged off the pads to backward square leg, for a single168/3
17.1FOURPollard to Raina, FOUR, pulled wide of a diving long-on. Got it in the gap and even a desperate dive couldn't save the boundary. Chennai coasting home166/3
16.2FOURBumrah to David Hussey, FOUR, now even the inside edges are going to the fence. Bumrah and Rohit are disappointed. Good delivery - right up in the blockhole, David Hussey while making room, inside edged it past Tare and down to the fine leg fence. Cakewalk now for Chennai156/3
16SIXP Ojha to Raina, SIX, this over has proved to be the final nail in Mumbai's coffin for this year's tournament. Raina doesn't want to miss out. Out he comes and goes for his favorite slog to leg. I shouldn't be calling it a slog, for it was a beautiful shot, across the line maybe, but he connected it alright and the ball flies over wide long-on. Third six off the over and 20 comes off it. Again the Chennai dugout is all smiles, while the whistles start tooting all over the ground152/3
15.4SIXP Ojha to David Hussey, SIX, David Hussey is killing the game off. That was the third six off his last four deliveries. Dances down and lofts it over long-on. The Chennai dugout are on their feet at that hit. They know now, that the game is theirs to lose, especially with a certain Mahendra Singh Dhoni waiting to bat.145/3
