END OF OVER:

Mumbai renew their hopes of a semi-final spot with that 16-run win victory. Again their openers, Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya, flopped but Ajinkya Rahane finally came good in the IPL, and JP Duminy continued to clock up composed half-centuries. Still, 157 seemed no more than a competitive total.

Bangalore tried out a new combination at the top of the order, but they still couldn't get things right. The top-order, as they have so often, made a hash of things, and Rahul Dravid's run-out in the tenth over was a big turning point. With this defeat, Bangalore's slim chances of making the final four become slimmer yet.

Post-match presentation: Kumble: Probably Rahul's run-out was crucial. It was still a good wicket to get 9 or 10 runs an over at the end, but we lost too many wickets early.

Tendulkar: We needed this victory, I thought Rahane and Duminy batted well till the end. I thought we played well all round, batting was good, bowling was good, fielding was good. We need exactly what are the aspects to focus on (to make the semi-finals).

The Man of the Match is JP Duminy. "I thought our total was very challenging. We might have liked something around 160-170, but in the end, we won. That's all that matters."

That's it from me Siddarth Ravindran, do join us for our coverage of the Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders in Johannesburg.
