In an absolutely thrilling encounter between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders, it was the home side that prevailed at the Wankhede Stadium, with the game coming down to the last over. Mumbai looked out of the contest with four overs to go, but big hitting from Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya, coupled with some poor fielding by KKR allowed Rohit Sharma’s side to secure a 4-wicket win.

Sensational from Hardik to take MI home. Fearless and nerveless in most daunting situation. KKR missed catches — and perhaps guts to win!
