Pune had slumped to 2-9 after two overs before Manoj Tiwary (58), Ajinkya Rahane (56) and MS Dhoni (40) rescued its innings. "Obviously we were in control but I won't say because of those two overs we lost the game", he said. With young 17-year old all-rounder, Washington Sundar, ripping through MI's famed middle-order, Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) became the first team to book their final date on May 21 in Hyderabad.

"We were struggling until the 18th, 19th and 20th over where MS (Dhoni) bhai played outstanding shots", Tiwary said in a post-match press conference.

MS Dhoni is a big match player.

Mumbai: It was a night when nothing went right for Mumbai Indians as they succumbed to 20-run defeat at the hands of Rising Pune Supergiant in Qualifier 1 of the 2017 IPL at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday, despite a half century from Parthiv Patel.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Lendl Simmons, Mitchel Johnson, Mitchell McClenghan, Nitish Rana, Parthiv Patel (WK), Saurabh Tiwary, Shreyas Gopal, Tim Southee, Lasith Malinga, Krunal Pandya, Keiron Pollard, Ambati Rayudu, Asela Gunaratne, Harbhajan Singh, Hardik Pandya, Jagdish Suchith, Jaspreet Bumrah, Jos Buttler, Karn Sharma and R Vinay Kumar. Before coming to the IPL, I had a plan to strike at a very high strike rate. I played with niggles in the last three or four games.

"I think I love this challenge of bowling in the first six overs with only two fielders outside the ring". We got another chance because we played well throughout the tournament. Tiwary and Dhoni clubbed 41 runs in the last two overs to lift Pune to 162 for 4, what Parthiv called a par score. "He got him out in the last game here, with the kind of length which he was bowling [today]". "It was a slow wicket and it was hard to time the ball but MS and Manoj did a terrific job to get a few over the fence and get us to that total". "It (break) was needed and rightly so and we were sure of the first or second position", said the pint-sized 'keeper-batsman who top-scored for his side with a 52-run knock.
