Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021: Points table, Team standings - Haryana beats Kerala to qualify for knockouts  

Mumbai 156/5 after 18.5 overs: A five-wicket win for Mumbai!  Sarfaraz raised his fifty and departed soon after and Dube wrapped up proceedings with another boundary off Reddy to seal the win. Some respite for the side who has lost four on a trot. Credit goes to the excellent partnership between Sarfaraz and Dube. The duo saw off the initial overs by rotating strike with minimum risk after Mumbai lost four early wickets. As the pressure mounted after the 16th over, Dube and Khan took the assault to the Andhra bowlers to notch a win of its final game.

Mumbai 147/4 after 18 overs: A good over from Stephen spoilt by Khan with a whopping six down the ground. Eight away from a win. A splendid knock from Sarafaraz to lead Mumbai home.

Mumbai 139/4 after 17 overs: 20 runs from the over!!  Sarfaraz Khan has come to the party at just the right time! His trademark ramp shots are in display as he creams for three boundaries and a delicate flick for six. Mumbai 16 away from a win.

Mumbai 119/4 after 16 overs: A massive over for Mumbai! Dube has swung it back in the host's favour as he smashes Stephen for a six and boundary off successive balls. Khan joins the party with a boundary too. 50-run partnership between the two. Mumbai needs 36 runs from 4 overs.

Mumbai 86/4 after 14 overs: Shivam Dube and Sarfaraz Khan have played sensibly. They have knocked around the singles with the odd boundary and is trying to keep the match afloat. The duo will be eyeing to shift gears soon.

Mumbai 66/4 after 10 overs: OUT! An agonising end for SKY. He cannot believe that he has given it away. An ordinary ball pitched outside off from Sasikant was meant to be hit. Suryakumar did just that as he went with a crunching drive. The ball is in the air for a brief moment and Ambati Rayudu leaps to his left and completes a brilliant low-catch to dismiss the Mumbai captain. Suryakumar Yadav c Rayudu b Sasikanth 22 (15b 3x4 0x6)

Mumbai 57/3 after 9 overs: OUT! Classical piece of bowling year from S Ashish! A beauty foxes Tamore who steps out to attack the leggie but it misses it completely. Bharat collects the ball and stumps in a snap. Mumbai slump further in this chase.  Hardik Tamore st Ashwin Hebbar b Ashish 19 (21b 3x4 0x6)

Mumbai 27/2 after 5 overs: OUT! Gomel has gone for the pull and found the midwicket fielder Ashwin Hebbar who completes a magnificent catch! He dives to keep the ball just off the ground and wobbles the ball twice before keeping hold of it! Mumbai in early trouble and the skipper Suryakumar Yadav has arrived. Aakarshit Gomel c Ashwin Hebbar b Shoaib Md Khan 2

Mumbai 21/1 after 4 overs: OUT! Jaiswal's streaky form continues. An excellent ball from Harsihankar Reddy induces the edge from Jaiswal and Bharat makes no mistake behind the stumps. Yashasvi Jaiswal c †Bharat b Reddy 13 (13b 2x4 0x6)

Mumbai 8/0 after 1 over: Stephen continues his fine run with the new ball. Jaiwal manages to hit the odd loose ball for a boundary but the left-armer tightens his line to concede just eight off the first.

We are back with the chase.  Yashasvi Jaiswal and Hardik Tamore at the crease for Mumbai.  C Stephen opens the attack for Andhra..

AP 154/8 in 20 overs: What a finish this has been! Ricky Bhui, take a bow! Dismissed of the final ball attempting a ramp shot, but Bhui has delivered under pressure to lend Andhra a respectable total, something worth fighting for. Bhui favoured the on-side in particular with some blistering shots in his 48-ball 78, plundering four mammoth sixes and seven boundaries in total. Ricky Bhui c Dube b Dake 78 (48b 7x4 4x6)

AP 99/6 in 16 overs: And right on cue, Bhui has taken the attack to Mumbai. He has peppered the onside boundary with three crisp boundaries off Sairaj Patil as Andhra finally musters to make a move.

AP 84/5 in 15 overs: Mumbai has strangled Andhra, albeit a dead rubber. The runs have dried up and the wickets have fallen at every crucial juncture. Andhra would be hoping that Ricky Bhui plays out the remaining overs and manage to take the score towards 120 at the minimum.

AP 64/5 in 10 overs: OUT! The misery continues as another Andhra batsman attempts a loose shot. Sujit Nayak bowls a short ball and Kumar plays a half-hearted pull to find the midwicket fielder. Prasanth Kumar c Khan b Nayak 4 (8b 0x4 0x6)

AP 50/4 in 7 overs: OUT! The big fish departs. Ambati Rayudu has holed out to a soft dismissal. A needless shot given the dire circumstances in which the team were. Akash Parkar gets a wicket of his first over. Ambati Rayudu c Dube b Parkar 1 (4b 0x4 0x6)

AP 47/3 in 6 overs: OUT! Atharva cleans up Dheeraj Kumar with a beauty! Similar line and length to Bharat's dismissal. Dheeraj however, chose to move to the on-side to attempt a slog sweep and Atharva's guile has just managed to trump him to smash the stumps. Dheeraj Kumar b Ankolekar 19 (13b 1x4 2x6)

AP 28/2 in 4 overs: OUT! Another 1-run over which brings a wicket! Atharva has Bharat struck on the pads! A beauty from the left-armer, the ball pitches on the full and straightens to hit middle as Bharat played down the wrong line towards leg. Andhra has now lost both its openers. Srikar Bharat b Ankolekar 13 (10b 2x4 0x6)

AP 27/1 in 3 overs: OUT! What an over from Dube! He has cranked up the pace and hit the deck. Hebbar was particularly uncomfortable in dealing with the nagging length and has his stumps cleaned up with a loose heave acrss the line of the ball. An excellent over from Dube.Ashwin Hebbar b Dube 11 (11b 2x4 0x6)

AP 14/0 in 1 over: Prathamesh Dake bowling his first over in the tournament has been taken apart by the Andhra openers. Hebbar has hit two boundaries through the point region off a couple of ordinary deliveries.

Match underway... Hebbar and Bharat at the crease for AP. Prathamesh Dake with the ball.
