Rising Pune Supergiant beat Mumbai Indians by 20 runs on Tuesday to enter the final of IPL 2017.

41 days of IPL with lots of ups and down has finally reached to a deciding spots where knock out matches will begin tonight as Mumbai will take on Pune at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

The must-win game turned out to be a cake-walk for Rising Pune Supergiant as they defeated Kings XI Punjab by 9 wickets in a low-scoring game at MCA Stadium, Gahunje on Sunday. After that, Dhoni took over and hit the pacer for two sixes as Pune collected 26 runs from the 19th over. The team that plays well on that day will go on to win the match. He and Lendl Simmons had taken Mumbai to 35 for no loss when a laid-back Simmons failed to get back into his crease at the non-striker's end in time and was run-out by bowler Shardul Thakur's touch on the ball.

The Vivo Indian Premier League 2017 is on the verge of ending.

Maxwell, whose side had enjoyed a late season resurgence to push for finals agreed with Smith.

Parthiv Patel (52 off 40) was solid at the other end and even used the long handle effectively to smash three sixes on the on side. Having the likes of Steve Smith, MS Dhoni and Ajinkya Rahane, who are masters of dealing with pressure situations, is certainly going to boost the visitors, who would want to make an impact in their last season as a unit.

"You really need to peak at the right time in tournaments like this".

Martin Guptill (0) uppishly drove to Manoj Tiwary at short cover off the very first delivery from Unadkat.

In fact, Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) have won three of the four encounters between the two teams and the last one would be rankling the Rohit Sharma-led team as they looked in control for most period while chasing 161run target.

Sehwag stated that the season was better than the previous two outings for the Kings XI Punjab but stressed that the incosistency did the team in.

On the other hand, the probable 11 for Rising Supergiants Pune will be Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith (c), Manoj Tiwary, MS Dhoni (wk), Usman Khawaja/Lockie Ferguson, Daniel Christian, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Adam Zampa.

The experienced Lasith Malinga despite his inconsistency, wicket-taker Mitchell McClenaghan and the dependable Jasprit Bumrah are likely to be back after a one game rest along with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.

In reply, Mumbai Indians kept losing wickets at the regular intervals.
