So, that finishes the proceedings at Visakhapatnam, as far as Mumbai Indians are concerned, as they play their final match of the league stage against the Gujarat Lions in Kanpur. Delhi have three more games to go, and would not be too disappointed after this defeat. As for the IPL, the action moves to the Eden Gardens where the Kolkata Knight Riders take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore. That should be a mouth-watering contest. Do join us for the coverage of the match tomorrow at 18:30 IST. Till then, it's goodbye from Kislaya, Manish and Kaushal.

KRUNAL PANDYA has been adjudged the MAN OF THE MATCH! He dedicates this innings to his parents, his brother Hardik, and his coach back in Gujarat.
...
"We wanted to play positive cricket today. Scoring 200 on that wicket was challenging but you saw the result in the end. We wanted to play a game like that, wanted to win with a big margin. Krunal Pandya played a brilliant knock and played some fearless cricket. He will remember that knock for a long time," says Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Mumbai Indians.
...
"Yes, 200 is always tough to chase. Having said that, it was a tough day for the bowlers. Off day for us as a bowling unit. Credit to Rohit for taking on the spinners early and didn't let us execute our bowling plans. We want to stay positive. We have this young energy and that is key, specially at the back end of this tournament. 3 games is enough to win 2 out of 3," says Zaheer Khan, the captain of the Daredevils.

So, a clinical performance by Mumbai, as their bowlers and the batsmen both answered the team's call and stood up just when it was needed. The star of the show was Krunal Pandya, though, who first scored a breezy 86 off just 37 balls, and then took the most important wicket in the DD line up, albeit with a bit of luck, that of Quinton De Kock. DD never really looked like they would chase the target after De Kock departed. Bumrah was also clinical with the ball picking up 3 wickets. It was only fitting that Pandya finished the game in the last over.
