IPL 2017: MS Dhoni's Hit Sends Rohit Sharma Tumbling Into RPS Dug-Out

"I have been bowling to my strengths", he said. We got another chance because we played well throughout the tournament. "Getting three big wickets on the big stage was no mean feat, and Smith hoped for a similar show come the grand finale".

Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians, who faced a defeat in its last game against Rising Pune Supergiants, will be awaiting the result of today's game as it will face the victor to make way for the finals.

Tiwary said his role in the team was well-defined, go in early and steady the ship if early wickets fall or bat lower down if a partnership gets built early on. So, mentally I was prepared.

"I am very proud to have big names in my pocked tonight", Sundar added. "He was the happiest man when I made it to the Ranji probables". However, the MI opener feels it could have turned out very differently if not for MS Dhoni's explosive innings of 40 in just 26 deliveries. There is no one better than him in crunch situations. He does not completely know the Indian domestic players and other teams as well, so we share our ideas. Smith has been supportive.

I'm glad to be starting and glad to be providing some chances for the boys as well and it's a great victory for us". We wanted to avoid that factor of complacency but obviously it was there, at least subconsciously.

But then, Dhoni has been used to changing such scripts.

Dhoni started his innings slowly but in the last few overs he took over the command in style, smashing Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell McClenaghan for quick runs along with Manoj Tiwary in the last two overs. "It was a slow wicket and it was hard to time the ball but MS and Manoj did a terrific job to get a few over the fence and get us to that total", Smith said. It was a big game. "He has too much on his plate and that way Mahi bhai is guiding each and every player to stand in the right position". "It was a slow wicket and it was hard to time the ball but MS and Manoj did a terrific job to get a few over the fence and get us to that total". These are some of the intriguing questions journalists have asked Washington Sundar over the years.

With the visitors in desperate need of a partnership, Rahane and Manoj got their act together helping the odd ball to the boundary as Mumbai maintained a ideal line and length, without allowing any freebies.
