But Thampi helped Gujarat stage a late comeback by taking three wickets in his last two overs.

He pulled the hosts back into the game with a direct hit that sent Bumrah back to the pavilion.
The excitement lasted till the last ball.
Needing one run off one ball, Lasith Malinga attempted to flick an inswinging Ayorker Abut missed. The ball hit the pads and travelled to Jadeja at point even as the bowler appealed for an lbw.
Jadeja pulled off another direct hit to run out Krunal who was caught short of the crease despite a desperate dive.

Sri Lankan pace spearhead Lasith Malinga led the charge for Mumbai as he clean bowled Brendon McCullum (6) and Aaron Finch (0) in his opening spell. Fellow pacer Jasprit Bumrah too responded as he got rid of Suresh Raina (1) when the left-hander chipped one to Kieran Pollard at mid-off.
When left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya had Dinesh Karthik (2) stumped by Parthiv Patel, Gujarat were struggling at 56/4 in 8.1 overs.
All this while, Ishan was impressing one and all with his dynamic stroke-making. He braved against a veteran like Malinga, hammering the Lankan for two fours and a six over midwicket in the second over.
The following over bowled by Mitchell McClanaghan saw Ishan repeat the treatment given to Malinga. Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh too was milked for two fours in the fourth over as the 19-year-old sparkled. Out of the 46 runs Gujarat scored after fours overs, Ishan contributed 36.
However, the haul of wickets and the disciplined bowling from Mumbai pressurised him and he succumbed, being holed out by Kieran Pollard at long-off in the first ball of the 12th over, with Gujarat at 83/5. His 48 included six fours and two sixes.
Two overs later, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja (28 off 21) too perished, giving a return catch to bowler Krunal. The spinner than removed Irfan Pathan (2), who was playing his match of the edition.
Separatists using Kashmiri people as scapegoats, no talks with them: Ram Madhav

New Delhi, April 29 (IANS) BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday said the separatists in the Kashmir Valley are using people as "scapegoats" and reiterated the government's stand of having no talks with them

In a post on his official Facebook page, Madhav, who played a key role in forming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and People's Democratic Party (PDP) coalition goverment, mentioned that the Union Government has "categorically" told the Supreme Court that there is no plan to hold any talks with "the separatists and those who are not loyal to India".

"Supreme Court too took a strong stand against the petitioners' demand that pellet guns be withdrawn exhorting them to first stop stone pelting and street violence before asking security forces to withdraw pellet guns. Stand of the SC judges including CJI is commendable and I am sure patriotic people in the country including those in the Valley welcome this position of the Court," he said in his post.

"However it must be kept in mind that forces have very few pellet guns and use them in rare situations only. Even where used, they are deemed less lethal than normal guns and bullets," he said.

He said forces are trained to maintain maximum restraint and use other methods to control violence.

"Government's stand is and should be clear. Tackle militants and their sponsors with utmost toughness. Handle misguided youths coming onto the streets with stones in hand with deftness so that violence is firmly put down but care is taken to prevent loss of life," Madhav said.

"The separatists have only one motto: One dead body a day, so that they can play sentimental politics over the dead bodies.

"They use people of the Valley as scapegoats in their reprehensible politics of violence and separatism. The security forces and the government on the other hand try their best to ensure that the ill-intentions of the separatists don't succeed. It is a difficult job being executed with commendable sincerity by the government and security forces," he said.
