At one point Mumbai Indians looked like running away with the game. They had everything under control until MS Dhoni walked out in the middle. He turned the game upside down to swung the momentum in Pune’s favour.

Dhoni literally butchered Mumbai bowlers in the death overs. His scorching knock featured five sixes. Dhoni took Mitchell McCleneghan and Jasprit Bumrah for cleaners in the final two overs, and made it Pune’s game.

“This kind of things can happen in this format when someone like Dhoni is batting,” Parthiv Patel said. “Obviously we were in control but I won’t say because of those two overs we lost the game.”

Parthiv also defended Mumbai’s decision of fielding Karn Sharma, not Harbhajan Singh, for the Qualifier 1.

“You can look at it in both ways,” Parthiv insisted. “But looking at all the right-handers (in the opposition camp) team management took the decision of going with two bowlers who will take balls away from the batsman.”
