Talking about the only match of the day, Rohit Sharma played a captain's knock to keep MI's slim play-off hopes alive in IPL 2018 as the visitors stunned CSK at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.

The match was evenly poised right towards the end with Mumbai, in pursuit of 170, needing 22 off 12 balls to win. Rohit kept his cool under pressure and took four elegant fours off Shardul Thakur in the penultimate over to make the visitors favourites to take the contest. 

Rohit remained unbeaten on 56 off 33 balls as MI claimed the encounter with two balls to go. Openers Suryakumar Yadav and West Indian Evin Lewis made 44 and 47 respectively and played their part in the comeback win for Mumbai.

Earlier after MI decided to bowl, Suresh Raina scored a 47-ball 75* to help the hosts reach a competitive 169/5. It was his first fifty this season in five matches, overall 33rd.
