Powerplay: Overs 0.1 to 6 (Mandatory – 54/0)

Mumbai Indians playing their final game of the season wanted to send their fans home happy. Despite a brief rain delay there was no stopping Rohit Sharma who took the attack to the opposition with Dewald Brevis playing perfect foil. 

Half-Century: Rohit Sharma from 28 balls

With a straight six off Mohsin Khan, the former MI skipper got yet another fifty in the Mumbai Indians colours. It was an innings of statement with the T20 World Cup around the corner. 

Mumbai Indians: First Strategic time-out (88/1 from 8.4 overs)

Dewald Brevis was the first wicket to go when he mistimed a full toss from Naveen-ul-Haq to be caught by Krunal Pandya. With Rohit Sharma going well at one end the onus was on the youngster to keep the runs flowing. Suryakumar Yadav came out to bat when the umpires halted play for the first time-out.

Lucknow Super Giants came back into the contest with the wickets of Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma. Krunal Pandya saw Yadav sweep one in the air only for Ravi Bishnoi to take a splendid catch. Rohit Sharma then fell to Bishnoi caught by Mohsin Khan for 68 runs to stun the home fans.

Mumbai Indians: Second Strategic time-out (119/4 from 14 overs)

The regular fall of wickets dented Mumbai Indians' run chase. Naman Dhir came out with aggressive intent and tried to stage a fight back. The tight bowling from LSG though saw the MI batters struggle to keep the boundaries flowing.

End of the Match: Mumbai Indians -196/6 from 20 overs

The season for Mumbai Indians ended the same way it began. Rohit Sharma and Naman Dhir provided some light relief with the bat. The rest of the Mumbai Indians batters suffered and for the second time in the history of the franchise they have finished bottom of the table.
