Match 9th- Gujarat Lions Vs Mumbai Indians match results
The Suresh Raina led Gujarat Lions had the last laugh here at the Wankhede Stadium Mumbai as hosts Mumbai wend down fighting. The match went in to a thrilling last over finish. Aaron Finch kept his nerve fresh to clinch a nail biting finish for his side. Alongside a tail ender in Dhawal Kulkarni, Finch managed to take his side home. It was Dhawal Kulkarni’s day as he first removed Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and then the dangerous Pandya then. He finished his spell with figures of 2/9 inclusive of a wicket maiden. The slide came in for Mumbai Indians when Jakati bowled a wide to get Jos Buttler off DK. Dinesh Karthick in the process overtook MS Dhoni to be the wicket keeper with most stumpings. In the end Krunal Pandya, the brother of Hardik Pandya and Tim Southee made sure Mumbai had something on board for their bowlers to bowl at. Gujarat Lions began the innings well but lost Baz. There seemed to be a partnership going along with Raina and Finch when Raina was dismissed off a short ball which most likely initiated the collapse. Then it was McClenaghan show as he picked up 4 wickets. Finch stayed strong at one end and played the sheet anchor role to get his team out of trouble.
