  • That is all we have from this game. The second match of the Super Saturday between Delhi and Bangalore have already started. So, you can switch the tabs and join us there. From here, it is goodbye!
  • KL Rahul is the Player of the Match for his brilliant century. 
  • Marcus Stoinis is up for a chat. He says that it was a great evening. Tells that there were a lot of twists and turns and such things happen as this is a great competition. Tells that de Kock got them to a flier and Rahul played amazingly well. Mentions that everyone knew what they had to do. Tells that he had a different role compared to the last game but it paid off and is happy.
  • Rohit Sharma, the skipper of Mumbai says that it is hard to put it in words. Mentions that 199 on this pitch was chaseable and they needed partnerships but lacked that. Adds that Lucknow bat quite deep so they wanted their key bowlers at the backend but it didn't work out. Tells that Bumrah bowled very well but others need to pull up their socks. Says that every game they play, they try to find the best 11 and unless they win games, they can't get the right 11. Further adds that Rahul batted brilliantly and till the end and that is something which is missing in their top order. Ends by saying that he tries to prepare just like any other game but it is not coming off but he backs himself and just enjoys out there. Tells that it is not the end of the world, they have come back from a similar situation before and they will try to come back again.
  • The match was won in the fielding department. Mumbai made too many mistakes but Lucknow were on top of their game today. The players backed the bowlers who were outstanding throughout the game. It was a good batting pitch but Lucknow made sure to take wickets at regular intervals. The skipper, KL Rahul's ton did not go in vain as Lucknow bowled really well. Avesh Khan was the pick of the bowlers who took three wickets while others kept the pressure from the other end as well. With this win, Lucknow move to second position with 8 points. Two newcomers on top of the point tables right now.
  • Mumbai were in trouble at the start by losing Rohit for yet another low score but it was Brevis's innings of 31 off 13 deliveries that helped them end the Powerplay on a high. He fell later and Mumbai were 3 down and looked upon Yadav once again to save them. SKY and Varma kept the scoreboard ticking and took the game deep. Few hopes were dead when Suryakumar Yadav perished but it was the big man, Pollard who kept the faith alive. A substantial innings was needed from him and something spectacular was required but the chase was just too big for the big man. Jaydev Unadkat and Murugan Ashwin tried hard but a lot was left at the end for them to chase. 
  • When it rains it pours and it is pouring heavily right now on Mumbai. It is now 6 games without a win and Mumbai continue to be the prime holder of the wooden spoon. Credit to Lucknow who kept it simple and kept their nerve till the end.
