Tiwary fell in the 20th over for a 48-ball 58, while Dhoni remained unbeaten on a 26-ball 40.
17-year-old Washington Sundar changed the qualifier at the Wankhede on its head with a two-over spell that went for just four runs and accounted for three crucial Mumbai wickets. Medium pacer Shardul Thakur (3/37) created problems for Mumbai at the death overs. Mumbai Indians have also won their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) the match took place at the Eden Gardens a couple of days back. Results of both matches were not known at press time May 16. Bumrah's overseas colleagues - Lasith Malinga and Mitchell McCleneghan - have to offer some support if they want to exert their influence on Pune's strong batting line-up.
With the visitors in desperate need of a partnership, Rahane and Manoj got their act together helping the odd ball to the boundary as Mumbai maintained a flawless line and length, without allowing any freebies.
The right-handed pair went on to add 50 runs off 44 deliveries with Manoj playing the ideal second fiddle to the local boy Rahane, who got to his half-century off 39 balls. Tripathi's 20-ball knock was laced with four boundaries and one six.
Rahane eventually completed his fifty off 39 balls while Tiwary was on 30 off 29 balls when Pune reached 83 for two in 12 overs. Mumbai has been the successful throughout the tournament but Pune is the only team which has managed to beat Mumbai and Co.in IPL 10 twice.
Davis homers twice in extra innings, Orioles edge Tigers
Jonathan Schoop is hitting.287 with five home runs and 18 RBI to lead the team while Manny Machado has nine home runs with 22 RBI. The right-handed is 1-1 with a 6.15 ERA, in his last outing he threw 7 2/3 innings allowing four runs against the Nationals.
After Unadkat provided the first-ball breakthrough, Shardul Thakur, who had gone wicketless in the last three matches, stepped up and broke the backbone of the KXIP innings with a three-wicket burst; he dismissed Marsh, Tewatia and Maxwell, and eventually finished with career-best T20 figures of 3/19.
After the wicket, Sundar then had his impressive bowling spell. Sundar has been a phenomenon for RPS as skipper Steve Smith has trusted him with the hard job of bowling in the powerplays.
While Jos Buttler, like Stokes, also had to fly back, MI, knowing that the right-hander would not be a part of the playoffs, gave Lendl Simmons an opportunity to get into his groove.
In reply Mumbai found themselves in deep trouble early and only a well-played 52 from Parthiv Patel added an air of respectability to their chase. But Mumbai weren't really up to the task.
Pollard (50no) would have been disappointed with his effort as at one point, with the help of Hardik Pandya (30) and Karn Sharma (19), had put them on the verge of victory.
