Mumbai Indians makes 4 wins in a row, as they beaten Gujarat Lions by six wickets.


Mumbai Indian chase down the target of 177, as once again the star of the match was the young lad of MI Nitis Rana. After losing early wicket Nitish Rana and Jos Buttler build up a partnership of 85 runs and a handy knock of 40 runs from the Mumbai captain Rohit Shama takes Mumbai Indians to their fourth straight win in IPL 2017.


Rohit Sharma: "Good overall performance. It is something we've always spoken about - being consistent in all three departments. The batting has come good and so hs the bowling. The fielding is something which is in our hands and that has come good as well. I have played a lot of cricket here at Wankhede and when we play a day game the ball stops and comes onto the bat. The spinners kept varying the pace and kept flighting the ball as well. Nitish Rana is a great talent. We are going to see a lot more of him in the time to come. He has been enjoying with the guys in the side. The team is pushing him to perform better and are very happy that he is taking responsibility coming in at number three. I have been in this position before as well and am happy to come good in the tournament."

Nitish Rana is the Man of the Match for his 36-ball 53 knock.


Nitish Rana: "I think I am in a very good zone. I try to play normal cricket and the kind of role I play it is very important for me to play my natural game. The domestic season a couple of years ago was a big boost for men, it game me the confidence that I am good enough. I am very clear about my game, I know what to do and what not to do. Thanks to Rohit and to Mahela for showing the confidence in me.
