Live Cricket Score – SRH Vs MI, Match 55, IPL 2021MI sign off with a 42-run victory

It's all over here! Mumbai Indians will bow out with a 42-run victory!

Manish Pandey's unbeaten 69 will be a mere footnote on a day that MI tried to do the unthinkable and were convincing, at least for one half of the game. This band of 2018 will disperse with the big auction coming up knowing that they've pulled off a dramatic, entertaining finish – exactly like they'd have liked. Another defeat for SRH tonight, they have plenty to work no before the auctions too.


Jason Holder falls, and so does SRH's chase?

It looks that way as the asking rate has now climbed

Jasprit Bumrah comes back and strikes straightaway…

Starts with change of pace and foxes Priyam Garg. SRH's fate depends on how they deal with this death overs stalwart.

Is the chase back on?

Manish Pandey and Priyam Garg would surely want you to believe so. They've resurrected the SRH innings to an extent with a short partnership, leaving the team needing 94 off 36. That's a tall ask, but tonight is one of those nights where every expectation seem dwarfed.

James Neesham nearly gets a hat-trick!

Oh he wants it bad, he's down appealing for an LBW on the hat-trick ball. But the umpire stands firm in the face of so much pressure. Neesham has to walk back because MI don't have a review left. To be fair to the umpire, it was a good call because the ball was missing the leg stump.

Abhishek Sharma's cameo is over…

He's gone for 33 off 16. Abhishek moved his front leg out of the way and swung through the line but hit to Coulter-Nile at the boundary at cow corner.


KKR fans can breathe easy! Their side has become the fourth side in the playoffs as SRH go past 65. MI needed 10 wickets before SRH got that, but could only manage one – of Jason Roy.

Jason Roy blazes away…

MI's faint hopes are being quickly extinguished here. Jason Roy has smashed away to start off the chase and SRH have 47/0 in 4 overs.

What should be SRH's strategy here?

It's the last game of the season and a chance to make a big statement. So will they go for the shots from the start, even if that means they risk losing wickets and bringing MI back in the playoffs hunt. From SRH's point of view, who finishes top-four may not be their concern. Taking a real stab at this chase could be more pertinent to them. Should be a fun chase.

MI end with 235/9 in 20 overs

A 32-ball 84 from Ishan Kishan and a 40-ball 82 from Suryakumar Yadav powers MI to their highest-ever IPL total. SRH bowlers have been pummelled all over the place today. They had a very,very brief period of revival in the middle after Kishan's fall but Suryakumar ended that quickly. The batsmen are done. now the bowlers need to play out of their skins to bowl out SRH for 65 or lower to make it to the playoffs here.

24-ball half-century for Suryakumar Yadav!He's found his touch again and keeps MI's fight on here.

MI cross the 171-run threshold, but not in the way they'd have wanted…

The holders are six down and have reached 184/6 in 15.3 when the timeout was taken. How much can they pull off in 27 deliveries?

Abhishek Sharma takes the sting out of MI's plans

Two wickets in two balls – first Pollard hitting straight to Jason Roy, who was stationed a lot straighter just for the West Indian, then James Neesham tried to flick a ball from outside off, but a leading edge went to cover.

Umran Malik ends the Ishan Kishan blitz

The SRH pacer is jubilant to have ended the MI's openers manic knock – on 84 off 32. Take a bow, Kishan! What an effort. He goes while attempting another one of the big hit – edging the short and wide ball to Saha behind the stumps.

No Hardik blitz tonight

The big man mistimes a leg-side heave and can only hit to Jason Roy at long on off Jason Holder. But mind you, the Ishan Kishan juggernaut is still on, and will now be joined by Kieron Pollard.

Mumbai Indians – 83/1 in 6 overs

That's the highest PowerPlay score of the season! What a start in Abu Dhabi. And now there's Hardik Pandya to add to this frenzy. What do SRH do from here?


Amid all the Ishan Kishan destruction, SRH have the wicket of Rohit Sharma. He went after a big shot against Rashid Khan and didn't connect at all. It could've still landed safely, if not for a superb, acrobatic take from Mohammad Nabi.

Hold on to that popcorn tub, folks. Hardik Pandya walks in at #3.

16-ball 50!

The MI opener is on fire here. Rohit Sharma has the best seat in the house to the Ishan Kishan pyrotechnics. He's got to a 16-ball half-century and SRH appear to have forgotten to bowl lines and lengths that aren't overwhelmingly ‘hit-me'.

Ishan Kishan is up for it…

DOT 4 4 4 4 2 against Sid Kaul in the second over. This is what MI have to try. Whether it comes off or not, we're in for entertainment.

About David Warner…

… check out his latest instagram post. Sounds like a goodbye, doesn't it?

Playing XIs:

MI:Rohit Sharma(c), Ishan Kishan (w), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, James Neesham, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jasprit Bumrah, Piyush Chawla, Trent Boult

SRH:Jason Roy, Abhishek Sharma, Manish Pandey(c), Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Umran Malik, Siddarth Kaul

TOSS:Rohit Sharma wins the toss and says: “We'll bat first, we have no other choice.” Beside him is Manish Pandey, leading SRH.

Team changes:MI bring in Krunal Pandya and Piyush Chawla for Jayant Yadav and Saurabh Tiwary. Kane Williamson and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are out with injuries, Mohammad Nabi and Manish Pandey are in.

Prelude – MI for MI?

It's final league day of IPL 2021, folks!

Rohit Sharma's mission, should he and his team choose to accept it, is a bit preposterous. Kolkata Knight Riders' crushing win over Rajasthan Royals last night was another nail in the coffin for the defending champions, and the equation is now this:

– Bat first, score BIG and win by *checks notes again* 171 runs!

– Bowl first, and you're knocked out even before the first ball is delivered

So, all this build-up will be moot if Kane Williamson pulls a cheeky one by winning the toss and batting first. Exciting times ahead, then!

What else is in this for SRH, you ask? Not plenty. The board room is perhaps already thinking ahead to the auction, although we don't know the retention rules yet. Based on this season's outcomes, not too many names worthy of retention anyway. Williamson & Co. can try to get a win tonight and close out their most forgettable campaign by picking up all 4 of the available points from the last two fixtures.

The one thing left to see if David Warner gets what could be a last outing in an SRH shirt, considering all that's transpired in this season. It's a sport and things change quickly and you never say never, but it does overwhelmingly feel like the relationship between Warner and SRH – a glorious one, mind you – has run its course.
