That is it from us for this game. Another one is about to start and you can catch it here. This is Abhishek Purohit signing off for now. Cheers!

Lasith Malinga is the Man of the Match. Malinga: "Yeah I always try to go for wickets, and I am very happy today. I have told Sachin, anytime he wants me to bowl, I am there, does not matter new ball or old ball. Bowling yorkers with the new ball is difficult, but I try to practise in the nets with both new and old ball."

Tendulkar comes up to a huge roar: "It's wonderful to be in Hyderabad and your support. I thought our fielding was brilliant, the run outs and the stumping by Davy." Amid cries of Sachin, Sachin, the man has to raise his voice to be heard. "The partnership between Symmo and Rohit helped us to get to a good total. But I still thought we were 20-25 runs short as we lost too many wickets early. If you ask me as a 38-year old, I am happy to have breaks, maybe not a 19-year old."

Sangakkara: "172 was gettable, but they should never have got to that much. We were pretty okay in the initial overs, but then they too the game away from us. Symmo and Rohit hit the loose ones out of the park. Our start with the bat was not too bad but we lost wickets regularly, trying to score 13-14 every over off guys like Lasith is very tough."

Hang on for the presentation.

DC Fan: "seriously though ..... uppal stadium should be exorcized for demons or demolished.....I don't see any other way...."

Santanu: "Mumbai looks a settled unit...great batting line up....effective bowlers...fielding almost as good as Prtoeas....only Davy Jacobs needs to be more consistent (both in front and behind wickets), may be Price could be tried as the 4th foreigner (Rayudu would have to keep) and I would like to see T Suman getting a look in. In fact the bench strength is also enviable...a really formidable unit."

Karishma: "DC is the most over-hyped and underperforming team of all. The problem with them is their balance. With no real firepower at the top and the longest tail to boot... there's not a lot further their famed bowling can take them..."

Sudip: "The stadium in jinxed. I suggest selling the stadium to the opposing team before a match so that the host actually becomes the guest and the guest team becomes the host. This seems to the only way a host team (DC/India) can score a win against the opposition in a match here."

Mudra: "is their anything that mumbai cant hit at the moment???they are hitting stumps, wickets, sixes, fours..." They can't seem to hit a dead end, even if they did, they'd bring it to life.

Comprehensive win for Mumbai Indians on their captain's birthday. Both sides were 70 for 4 in the 10th over. Mumbai had Symonds and Rohit, Deccan did not. That was the difference. And yeah, all the innumerable direct hits that Mumbai scored, leading to three run outs. Mumbai open up a four-point lead over second-placed Kolkata Knight Riders. Lasith Malinga has the unbelievable figures of 4-0-9-3. He gets to 100 Twenty20 wickets as well, only the sixth bowler to do so.
