IPL Rohit Sharma bemoans Mumbai Indians' worst performance of 2017

Rising Pune Supergiant had a shaky start to their innings after they lost in-form Rahul Tripathi and skipper Steve Smith within the first two overs.

Dhoni exhibited why he's known as one of the best finishers of the game and took both Jasprit and McClenaghan to the cleaners adding the crucial runs in the final two overs.

When asked whether Bumrah missed the trick bowling just a couple of yorkers in the last few overs, Parthiv said: "No". One of the most successful skippers of the IPL, Dhoni's removal from captaincy, after nine consecutive years of the IPL, left a bad taste in his fans mouth. He obviously is a good player and has been bowling brilliantly throughout the tournament. Bumrah returned and Dhoni could barely connect, scoring only one run off the three balls he faced in the 18th over. While the loser of this game will get another game to play, known as the Eliminator, with the victor of the qualifier 2.

"Not really. I had niggle and stayed back".

Mumbai slipped to 41-3 then 51-4 in Sundar's last over when Kieron Pollard was also caught neatly by Smith. "We got the momentum we needed", he said.

Patel was of the opinion that the 160-odd that the Supergiant scored was "par score" on the Wankhede track.

Having been given the challenge to bowl in the six Powerplay overs on Tuesday, the 17-year-old Tamil Nadu talent rose to the task and delivered when he ran through the Mumbai top-order as Pune defended their total of 162/4 at the Wankhede Stadium.

Whatever you say, however you look at it, RPS without Ben Stokes in the lineup looks considerably weaker. The two had been struggling as the Mumbai spinners had kept it tight.

"We got to believe in ourselves". He does not completely know the Indian domestic players and other teams as well, so we share our ideas.

There is a lot at stake as the winning team goes straight into the final to be played in Hyderabad on May 21, while the losing side gets another chance in the second qualifier, to be played on May 19 in Bengaluru. It's very important for us to forget what has happened today and treat the next game as the semi final.
