A win in the same season against Mumbai Indian was a win which they snatched very smartly in the last overs from the hands of MI. With Jason Roy not with the team and Glenn Maxwell given a chance to open and put some fast runs in the first six overs. 

The Shaw-Maxi cameo was short and Maxwell bowled on 22 by Bumrah. Iyer came in as captain but the innings were too short of just 6 runs. We saw a Rishabh Pant innings which is usual these days when he gets going after bowlers. With 4 sixes and fours Pant made 64 handled well with Shankar playing good in his 43*. 

With 175 on board, it was a pressure on openers to look forward and win. But the whole top and middle order could not go past 15 and the lone opener E.Lewis made 48. It was Hardik Pandya and Ben Cutting who looked solid and turned things to 38 off 18 in the last.

Ben alone left with bowlers on side required 17 in the last over by Harshal patel. Six off the first and then wickets thereafter and loss against the same team whom they lost in the first leg at Mumbai (home).

Iyer 16 and out but then stepped Colin Ingram, the left hander who made 47 off 32, helping team with 7 fours and a six. Rishabh Pant stepped in the 13 over and it was just the cracking sound off the bat and the overflowing of the sweat of MI bowlers. The 78* came in just 27 balls with 7 fours and 7 sixes i.e 70 of just 14 balls.

Pressure on MI squad chasing a huge total of 214 in their 20. Were they capable of capitalizing  it?
