The Mumbai Indians produced yet another dominant performance, very much akin with their displays in the second half of this season, to power past the Chennai Super Kings by 25 runs into the Final of IPL Season 8.

Having won the toss, Mumbai decided to make first use of a slightly slow Wankhede Stadium pitch, and posted an excellent score of 187-6 on the board in their 20 overs. Their opening partnership of Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel continued to flourish, with the former making an outstanding 65 from just 51 deliveries, while the latter chipped in with 35 from 25 balls.

The Mumbai Indians completed a fairytale turnaround to their season by booking their place in the play-off game against the Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday with a thumping 9 wicket win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who appeared to still be reeling from their devastating late loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier this week.

The Sunrisers won the toss and elected to make first use of the pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal. It proved to be a disastrous decision as they soon found themselves reeling at 7-2 with both openers Shikhar Dhawan (1) and David Warner (6) back in the pavilion. Dhawan was cleaned up by a quick yorker from Lasith Malinga while his Australian counterpart fell to a short delivery from Man of the Match Mitchell McClenaghan.

The Mumbai Indians kept their hopes of making the knock-out rounds of the Indian Premier League alive by picking up a thrilling 5 run win against the Kolkata Knight Riders in a nail-bitting contest at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai tonight.

The Knight Riders won the toss and decided to send Mumbai in. The visitors dominated the early stages of the contest, restricting the Mumbai Indians to barely 100 odd runs in the first 15 overs, but Hardik Pandya produced a gem of an innings late in the game to power Mumbai to a very competitive 171-4 from their 20 overs.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore thumped the Mumbai Indians by 39 runs to give their hopes of making it to the knock-out rounds of the Indian Premier League a massive boost, while condemning their hosts to their first defeat in 6 outings.

After having witnessed a Gayle-storm earlier in the tournament, it was time for the AB de Villiers show as the Proteas superstar made an incredible unbeaten 133 from just 59 balls to power the Royal Challengers Bangalore to a tournament best total of 235-1 in their 20 overs.

After struggling to buy a win early in the season, the Mumbai Indians are quickly becoming the form team heading into the knockout stages of the Indian Premier League, having picked up their fifth win on the bounce by accomplishing a rare feat, beating the Chennai Super KingsĀ at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk.

The flip of the coin went the way of the home side, and skipper MS Dhoni chose to have a bat. Brendon McCullum powered his way to 23 from 11 balls, giving Chennai a typically quick start, but his opening partner Dwayne Smith was a little off his game today, and struggled to 27 from 35 before holing out to Harbhajan Singh. In between, Chennai also lost the wicket of Suresh Raina for a run a ball 10, leaving them in a spot of bother at 65-3.

The Mumbai Indians continue to make a strong finish to the IPL season, having moved up into fourth position in the league standings courtesy of a narrow 5 wicket win against the Delhi DaredevilsĀ at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Delhi Daredevils won the toss and chose to bat first, but were instantly left to rue that decision when they lost opener Mayank Agarwal for a golden duck. Shreyas Iyer (19) and JP Duminy (28) shared in a good stand worth 43 for the second wicket in pretty quick time, but both batsmen fell in successive overs to force Delhi to rebuild all over again.

The Mumbai Indians remained in contention for a place in the Eliminator Game of the Indian Premier League, picking up a comfortable 23 run win over a beleaguered Kings XI Punjab side who succumbed to their 7th defeat of the season, thus realistically ending any hopes they had of making the knock-out rounds.

Batting first on winning the toss, the Mumbai Indians posted a competitive total of 172-3 on the board with openers Lendl Simmons (71) and Parthiv Patel (59) making half-centuries and sharing in an opening stand worth 111. Patel, who was the more aggressive of the opening duo on this occasion, fell in the 13th over and the batsmen that followed failed to make the most of the platform that the openers had laid for their side.
