Rohit Sharma smashed a towering six in the very last ball to steer Mumbai Indians to a dramatic five-wicket victory against Deccan Chargers in a nerve-wrecking IPL match here today.
Chasing 139 for victory, Mumbai looked like losing their second consecutive match before being saved by the heroics of Rohit who remained unbeaten on 73 which he made from 50 balls with the help of four fours and five sixes.
Mumbai needed 18 runs from the dramatic last over bowled by Daniel Christian and Rohit hit two sixes, including off the last ball to script a sensational victory at the Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy Cricket Stadium.
