Arshdeep with the final over and the tension is very much in the air. He started with a low full toss as David got only a single to deep cover and Tilak Varma couldn’t score in the second ball. The third ball saw Arshdeep castling Tilak Varma and Nehal Wadhera coming in as Impact sub for Behrendorff departed without making any impact as Arshdeep pinged in a brilliant yorker to pack off Wadhera for a duck. Mumbai required two runs in 15 balls with Arshdeep on a hat-trick. The bowler misses the hat-trick but sealed the match for his side with a brilliant four-wicket haul.
Tim David welcomed Arshdeep Singh into the attack with a monstrous six over the deep square leg boundary and what a game this game has been with sixes raining from both sides. But Arshdeep tilted the game by dismissing Surya with Mumbai needing 33 off 15 balls at that point of the game. SKY departed for a brilliant 57 off just 26 balls and that was an outstanding innings from one of the best T20 batsmen in the world. Mumbai needs 31 runs in 12 balls.
Surya hits a brilliant 50 off 23 balls and this match is far from over. SKY with his pyrotechnics has kept the Mumbai crowd on their feet and most importantly has found his form back. SKY has got his eyes and he holds the key in this tense run chase. as he hits a huge six by skipping down the track and that’s absolute carnage.
