With the game almost done and dusted for Mumbai at Lucknow, Nicholas Pooran smacked the final nail in the coffin as he took a screamer off Yash Thakur's bowling to end the night for Vishnu Vinod in the 18th over of the chase.
Fielding at deep square leg near the fence, the agile West Indian timed his jump to perfection and didn't let the power behind Vinod's pull stroke take the ball past the boundary cushions or slip off the fielder's hands.

However, after the wicket of Vishnu Vinod, MI tried all their force to break open the closed doors at Lucknow as Tim David - with his brute power - took the match down the wire, smacking Naveen-ul-Haq for 19 runs in the penultimate over. But Mohsin Khan became the hero of the night by executing his plans right against David and Cameron Green, defending 11 runs off the last over as LSG won by five runs.
