141 may not seem too daunting but this pitch has something for the seamers early on with the new ball. Bangalore will still have to be cautious. Mumbai were made to look scratchy early on. Don't ask me why Pollard was sent in so late. A few more overs of him and he could have added another 15-20 at least. Join us shortly.

VKG: "I loved IPL since its inception because it turned out to be a good show-case for domestic talent. But, I am very disappointed with this IPL season, as no new talent has made his presence felt except, to a small extent, Mandeep Singh."
