Gill (129) fires Titans into IPL final; showdown with CSK set for Sunday

Mumbai chase runs out of steam

Mumbai lost openers Rohit Sharma and Nehal Wadhera inside three overs of the reply, while Green had to retire hurt in between those two dismissals after being hit on the elbow by a Pandya bumper.

The five-time winners had already had to sub Ishan Kishan due to concussion, following an accidental collision with team-mate Jordan, but managed to stay in contention thanks to the impressive hitting of Tilak Varma.

The left-hander thumped five fours and three sixes before he was castled by Rashid Khan to end his 14-ball knock for 43.

Green was able to return and put on 52 with Suryakumar Yadav, whose presence alone meant Gujarat’s win was far from assured.

But Ireland left-armer Josh Little bowled Green and Yadav was bowled by Mohit soon after bringing up a 33-ball half-century to end the Mumbai charge.

Mohit ran through the lower order to claim career-best T20 figures and send Gujarat, in just their second IPL campaign, back to the final. (BBC Sport)
