Sam Curran (Punjab Kings Captain and Player of the Match): "Yes, pretty special. An amazing ground and the atmosphere is incredible. MI are a tough team. To win here and defending a total was great for us. I don't deserve the POTM, Arshdeep does. But I did my bit and took responsibility. The others did their job and we are coming together. Hope to have Shikhar Back and also Rabada. So, let's see how it goes. 

It's a nice vibe in the dressing room and we are keeping it simple. They tell us to enjoy ourselves and be positive. Shikhar is a relaxed guy and he helps us stay grounded. I am happy with the win and hope Shikhar gets fit and leads the side. I am enjoying my captaincy in the interim. 2 wins in 3 games. Thank You."

11:40 PM IST | Time for post-match presentations...
Purple Cap switches heads and now Arshdeep Singh is the owner of it. He has 13 wickets in 7 matches! 
Arshdeep Singh (Punjab Kings): "Feels good whenever I take wickets and right now I feel more good because the team won as well.

The rhythm feels good. Before IPL, I changed my run up, shortened a bit and it helped me with the no ball problem and the rhythm is really nice right now and I am enjoying my cricket at the moment."
Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians Captain): "A little disappointed. We made some errors on the field which can happen but we won't look too much into that.
Just keep our heads high. We played six games now, won 3 lost 3. Even stevens at the moment. Lot of time remaining in the tournament so we can't look down. We need to stay in the game and in the tournament and keep doing the right things. Yes we didn't come out on top today. Like I said, we made some errors but it is something for us to look back at it.

Quite happy with the way these 2 guys batted today. It was important for us to keep us in the game and they kept us in the game till the end. Gotta give credit to Arshdeep the way he bowled in the end. it was not our day today."
11:23 PM IST: Another thrilling game comes to an end this season and it is Arshdeep Singh who is the hero in the end as he bowled a brilliant last over scalping a couple of wickets as Punjab Kings win this game by 13 runs at the Wankhede Stadium to topple the home side. Mumbai gave it their all but fell short at the end.  

Chasing a mammoth 215 for the win, Mumbai lost Ishan Kishan early. Skipper Rohit Sharma came out all guns blazing with his 44 off 27 balls. Cameron Green was sensational in his 67 off 43 balls and he alongside Suryakumar Yadav were taking the game away from Punjab. It was a welcome return to form for SKY as he scored a breath-taking 57 off 26 balls. But they fell at the crunch moment as it was a bridge too far for Tim David who remained unbeaten on 25* off 13 balls. MI ended with 201/6 in 20 overs. 

Arshdeep Singh was the pick of the bowlers for Punjab Kings with figures of 4/29 in 4 overs. A wicket for Nathan Ellis who was the impact player and Liam Livingstone who got the wicket of Rohit Sharma. The rest of the bowlers went for runs but held their nerves when it really mattered. 

Earlier in the game, Punjab Kings lost Matthew Short early for 11. Prabhsimran Singh scored 26 off 17 balls. Atharva Taide scored a quickfire 29 off 17 balls. Liam Livingstone went early. But it was the skipper Sam Curran show as he scored a brilliant 55 off 29 balls. Harpreet Singh Bhatia scored 41 off 28 balls at a crucial time. It was Jitesh Sharma's 25 off 7 balls that powered PBKS past the 200-run mark and ended with 214/8 in 20 overs which proved to be a bridge too far.   

Piyush Chawla was the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai Indians with figures of 2/15 in 3 overs. He was a cut above the rest of the bowlers. A couple of wickets for Cameron Green who had a good game with the bat and ball. A wicket apiece for Jofra Archer, Jason Behrendorff, and Arjun Tendulkar. Arjun gave away 31 runs in a single over which changed the momentum of the game. 

So, PBKS wins this by 13 runs and notch up their 4th win in the competition. They climb upto 5th in the points table and move ahead of Mumbai Indians. Mumbai has death bowling issues to address going forward. 

Stick around for the presentation ceremony.

Arshdeep Singh is on a hat-trick now. He is nailing the yorkers here and has won the game for his side. All he has to do now is bowl legal balls and the game is there for the Punjab Kings.
