In reply, the Mumbai top-order batsmen got good starts but failed to convert those to the big scores. Due to the wickets falling in regular intervals, Mumbai were feeling under pressure with the time progress. At one stage, the defending champions were struggling on 169/6 and 207/7.

However, the middle-order batsman Shivam Dube showed the never-give-up attitude with his strong batting performance. Dube first completed his half-century in 41 balls. After that, he consistently bashed the bowlers and completed his maiden List A century in just 58 balls. This dominant knock suddenly helped Mumbai to return in that game.
