Krunal Pandya's heroic 47 helps Mumbai post 129-8 against RPS in IPL final

Hyderabad, May 21 (IBNS): Losing wickets at regular intervals, Mumbai Indians struggled to post 129 runs for the loss of eight wickets against Rising Pune Supergiant in the high-voltage Indian Premier League final here on Sunday.

Jaydev Unadkat gave early troubles to Mumbai batsmen as he picked up wickets of both the openers-Parthiv Patel (4) and Lendl Simmons (4)- to make the side struggle at 2-8.

Unadkat picked up a brilliant catch on his own bowling, probably one of the best in the tournament so far, to get rid off Simmons.

Ambati Rayudu (12) and Rohit Sharma (24) departed at a point when it seemed that they were shaping up a partnership after the initial jolts.

It was  Krunal Pandya and his heroic efforts till the end which gave some hopes to Mumbai.

It was his magnificent innings of 38-ball 47 that helped Mumbai post 129 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 20 overs.

He hit three boundaries and two sixes in his knock.

Australian spinner Zampa picked up two wickets for RPS.

Washington Sundar bowled brilliantly as he gave away only 13 runs in his tight four overs.
