Subhash: "Is there any prize for most number of Full toss??? just wanted to confirm...i have never seen this much full tosses in a single match.."

Chennai hit 180 but put in a very poor bowling performance and Mumbai, led by Sachin Tendulkar and Shikhar Dhawan, chased it down with an over to spare. Hang on for quotes from post-match ceremony.

Dhoni: "Our bowlers are lacking confidence. The pressure seems to be getting to them. They have to believe in themselves and lift the performance. There was plenty to learn from tendulkar. he knew which fielder had weak shoulder, whom to run, which bowler to take .. it was amazing to learn for all the youngsters. "

Tendulkar is the man of the match: "It's a wonderful moment for us becasue it was a big game for us .. It was a big total and we didn't get off to a flier but Shikhar accelerated brilliantly to play some big shots. It was a well calculated chase in the end. I think I was trying to force the pace too much in the initial overs before i decided let me just stay 20 overs. I have said Thank you to international T20 in 2007 but IPL I have been playing and it's been fun. I wanted to finish the game but got out playing the pull shot. But Bravo finished it off and I am glade we won. I thought our bowlers tried well but they couldn't hit the right areas. Credit to Raina and Badrinath played a good supporting role. It's still too early to say anything about the tournament. You can never take anything for granted. I have never done in cricket. It's a funny old game, just when you think you are on top, things start going wrong."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on.

Balaji to Tendulkar, OUT, The slow bouncer just outside the off stump line, Tendulkar goes for the pull and top edges it right up in the air and Dhoni moves forward to take it. He has nearly taken his team through but has fallen short just near the line .. Will there be a twist?

Balaji to Tendulkar, FOUR runs, How many is too many? Yet another full toss. Tendulkar square-drives it to the point boundary. It's highest Twenty20 score, screams Danny Morrison
