Indians hold their nerve to seal epic victory

The Mumbai Indians held their nerve to seal an astonishing one wicket victory over Trinidad and Tobago who suffered heartache after almost defending a total of 98 in a low scoring thriller.

Despite facing a relatively small run chase, the Indians collapsed to a total of just 33-5 before Ambati Rayudu (36) and Lasith Malinga (15) lead IPL franchises fight back to set up a thrilling fashion.

With 11 runs needed off the final over the Indians looked on course for victory when Malinga dispatched Sherwin Ganga (0-31) second delivery for a six straight down the ground.

With the pressure mounting Malinga and Rayudu were then both run out, before Yuzvendra Chahal (2) came to the crease and scored the two winning runs from the final ball of an amazing game.

Despite losing the West Indians can look back on the game and be proud of their performance with the ball after they were bowled out for just 98 in the 17th over.

With wickets falling at regular intervals, Jason Mohammed (21) and Lendl Simmons (21) offered the most resistant but few would have predicted how the game would finish an hour and a half later.
