End of Over : 19.4 RR: 168/7

That's it from us. Phew! What a Sunday we have had. Two games and both going right down to the wire. Earlier, Chennai managed to defend while in this one Mumbai failed to do the same. This win will surely boost Rajasthan's morale going forward. Tomorrow we have single games as Delhi will welcome Punjab in Feroz Shah Kotla. Do tune in at 2000 IST to catch all the action from the Northern Derby. Cheers!

19.4 6

SIX! He connects and connects one and it's off the meat. Krishnappa GOAT-HAM has done it for his side. Incredible hitting, 33 off just 11 balls and boy, he has struck at the strike rate of 300. Wow! Slower back of a length delivery, Krishnappa waits, waits and then flat-bats it over the deep mid-wicket fence for half a dozen. The entire Rajasthan team barge towards him and let out a huge roar. A THRILLING 3-WICKET VICTORY FOR THEM!

19.3 0

Fuller delivery outside off, driven towards cover. Doesn't run. He wants to take it on himself.

19.2 4

FOUR! That will do! How smart is that act under pressure? Gowtham sees that the third man is up so what he does is, waits back, crouches a touch and with an angled blade he ramps it over the man there. A boundary results.

19.1 W

OUT! A full swing of the bat, top edge and it's taken! Hardik Pandya does it all by himself. He digs in a short ball, it keeps climbing on Archer who has no option but to go after it. It takes the top edge and Pandya himself runs to his right and takes it.

End of Over : 19 18 Runs RR: 158/6
18.6 4

FOUR! Bangs it short again, Gowtham tries to pull it doesn't get it off the middle and the ball races through square leg region.

18.5 0

Slower bouncer outside off. Gowtham is early in his pull and misses it completely. Where was all his Jasprit?

18.4 4

FOUR! Wonderful cut from Gowtham! Short ball from Bumrah outside off, Gowtham cuts it past point in the gap. Game on!

18.3 2

Very good running! Low full toss on the pads of Gowtham. He doesn't connect with his flick and the ball goes towards square leg. The Mumbai fielders are not quite alert and Rajasthan pick up two runs.

18.3 2

No ball! Get me some popcorn somebody! Bumrah like he does often oversteps again. Lands this around off, Archer lofts it to long on for a run. Free Hit incoming!

18.2 2

Hits this wide of the long on fielder and hares for the second run. Very good cricket all round.

18.1 4

FOUR! Length ball outside off, Jofra stays back and cuts it to the backward point region for a boundary. This chase is still alive. 24 more runs needed of 11 balls.

End of Over : 18 15 Runs RR: 140/6
17.6 4

FOUR! Edged and away. Rajasthan all of a sudden have come back in this, 15 from the over. Very full, angled away outside off, Krishnappa goes hard at it. Gets a thick edge which evades Kishan's dive and races away to the fence. 28 needed off 12 balls.

17.5 6

SIX! That's gone the distance. Gowtham has packed a punch, says Ian Bishop on air. Holds back to a slower back of a length delivery and clubs it over deep mid-wicket for a biggie all the way.

17.4 2

Clears his front leg and looks to go big over cover. Slices it but it lands safe, they take two.
