• Sensational Pollard leads Mumbai to victory, despite Faf 50

    Kieron Pollard played what could be the innings of the IPL, scoring an unbeaten 87 off only 34 balls to almost single-handedly guide the Mumbai Indians to a four-wicket win over the Chennai Super Kings.

    Mumbai won the toss and elected to field but were set a mammoth 218 runs to chase after yet another half-century by Faf du Plessis, while Moeen Ali contributed 58 and Ambati Rayudu struck an unbeaten 72.

    At the halfway stage CSK looked to be well in control and would have felt confident after Mumbai started sluggishly in the powerplay. It took gamebreaking magic from Kieron Pollard to wrest the ascendency back.

    Pollard smashed 16 runs in the final over against Lungi Ngidi to see Mumbai home in what was a memorable clash.
