Pune beat Punjab to seal IPL play-off spot

Supergiant slay Mumbai Indians to enter maiden IPL final

Currently, Mumbai and Pune both captured top position at the IPL points table on the first and second spot with 20 and 18 points both teams are having respectively. The 17-year-old tall off-break bowler rocked the Mumbai Indians' top order to set up 20-run win in the Qualifier 1 match at Wankhede Stadium here on Tuesday night. The four teams that have manage to go through the battle and find a place in play-off's are Mumbai Indians, Pune Supergiant, Hyderabad and KKR.

Supergiant is the only team to have defeated Mumbai Indians twice in the league stage, both home and away and this fact would be playing on the minds of Mumbai players. Dhoni anticipated McClenaghan's good or short length, sat back and hit two sixes. The victor of the match will enter final, while the losing team will have another shot at entering the title clash in the Qualifier 2 on May 19. On the other hand, Mumbai is't new to play such big games.

About the 41 runs that Pune scored in the last two overs, Smith said that it released some pressure of the bowling. The following players were rested in the last and final league MI match.

In the 20th over, Tiwary chose to take a single and watch the show as Dhoni first went over covers off Jasprit Bumrah and then went for a double off a mistimed pull. Mumbai started the season with a loss against this very side. The Mumbai bowlers pulled it back in the next nine overs. Who knows? The biggest advantage for Pune in this upcoming match is the presence of MS Dhoni in their line-up.

Smith took joy in the fact that Pune proved to be Mumbai's nemesis every time they met this season. When the likes of West Indians Lendl Simmons, Kieron Pollard, Parthiv Patel, skipper Rohit Sharma, Nitish Rana fire in unison, they can destroy any bowling line up in the world and Pune's will be no exception.

Dhoni smacked 40 off 26 to propel RPS to a fighting total of 162 before Sundar crippled MI's chase early with his 3 for 16.

Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS): Rahul Tripathi, Ajinkya Rahane, Steven Smith (Captain), Manoj Tiwary, MS Dhoni (Wicket Keeper), Daniel Christian, Rajat Bhatia, Washington Sundar, Jaydev Unadkat, Shardul Thakur and Adam Zampa. "You need to understand the situation and respect them". "Hopefully, the other guys will stand up for us". Apart from this, in the balling frontline, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah, Harbhajan Singh, and Lasith Malinga will have a positive impact on the team.
