7dThe Report by Karthik Krishnaswamy

Karn, Bumrah carry Mumbai into fourth IPL final

Karn Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah picked up their best T20 bowling figures, combining to take 7 for 23 in seven overs to lift Mumbai Indians into their fourth IPL final

Commentary

Commentator: Nikhil Kalro

11.02pm Handshakes all around. KKR knew they were sub-par today and you have to be at your best against this Mumbai Indians team. Mumbai won the toss and never looked back. If ever there was a wire-to-wire win. The chase began with a stumble, but Rohit and Krunal settled all that to take Mumbai through in what was quite a simple chase in the end. Done with more than five overs to spare. So that sets up Rising Pune Supergiant v Mumbai Indians in the grand finale of IPL 2017.

Since the playoffs started, teams that finished first and second have played in the finals 5 out of 7 seasons, and the team finishing second have won 6 times.

Presentation time.

Karn Sharma is the Man of the Match: "My bowling is come out well, it wasn't great last year but I have worked hard on it. This was an important game for the team as we had to qualify for the final, so I just tried to get wickets for my team and bowl them out quickly. It's a good thing that I am helping out the team."

Rohit Sharma: "We have been really working hard. We don't shy away from going into the finals the hard way. Today was the perfect day. Gives you a lot of confidence, bowlers set the day for us. Taking wickets at regular intervals and keeping the score under control. That's been the hallmark of this team, we're not dependent on one individual. In the top five, we don't have any batsman. Shows a team effort. It's not me, something we have been talking about. I just go and execute what I've been told. I rely on my gut feeling as well. It's very necessary to keep changing. We've not had a great history against (Rising Pune Supergiant). Just one more hurdle."

Gautam Gambhir: "We discussed after the last game that we couldn't get 160-170, we needed 140. Lost too many wickets early on. 107 is not a great score unless you can get the opposition all out. We had to be up for it. Had we had wickets, we could have targetted one or two bowlers. Proud, because we put everything we could. We had two opportunities, we missed it. We could have had two cracks at the top two. The boys were professional through the season."

UT Yadav to KH Pandya, FOUR, dropped and goes to the boundary. Short on off, Krunal backs away and carves the ball to third man. The fielder gets across but can only get a hand on his attempted catch. Too tough to call that an opportunity. Rolls away into the boundary and <b>Mumbai go through to the final</b>

UT Yadav to KH Pandya, no run, a low full toss on off, shovelled to midwicket. No feet

UT Yadav to Pollard, 1 wide, 138 kph, may have been close to a wide for the left-hander. Well down leg

Should be the last over of KKR's season. Umesh will bowl it.

Rajpoot to KH Pandya, FOUR, Krunal grimaces after hammering a drive. Full and wide outside off, drilled past mid-off for four. Immediately holds his groin, hamstring area. Fantastic area to hit the ball
