Please do hang on for the quotes from the post-match ceremony.

Dharmin Desai: "After all that's said and done, I guess that one over from Alfonso Thomas which went for 28 runs was the difference between the two sides".

Nick: "Extra impressed by Malinga today. Teams are expecting yorkers from him, and he managed all wickets by Bouncer and slower ball today. Nice to see him developing other weapons beside yorker."

N'Jan: "7 in a row. The sad part is they did not try to win most of them. I guess IPL should go the EPL way and demote non performing teams to a lower level."

Abbey: "Did some math... Alfonso's average before the last over was 8 runs. Had he maintained the same in his last over the MI's score would have been 141(160-27 and +8). Then would have been a close match then...but looking at the final score PW would have lost this too...!! "

Ashish: "@Kevin....Manish Pandey has been off-color this season, but believe me he is a brilliant batsman. Just watch his innings in the Karnataka Vs Mumbai 2009 Ranji final, you'll know what a talent he is."

--------------

Yuvraj Singh: "I got Sachin out. That was great but unfortunately lost the game. I really don't what's happening. I think we bowled decent enough. May be 10 runs extra but 160 was gettable. We played too many dot balls. You need power hitters in the end to finish the game. Unfortunately we got too bogged down. we have nothing to lose now; so I am sure we will cut somebody (some team) out"

Tendulkar: "Knocking at the door but the door hasn't opened yet. We would love to get in. We could always do better. I thought Rahul Sharma bowled brilliantly; he has bowled a few good spells and this was one of them. Suman and Pollard batted well. If we go too hard, we can get out for 95 also. We have to decide based on the track. Suman batted really well; it wasn't wild slogging; it was clean hitting. I am happy that I took the decision to promote him ahead of Pollard and Symonds. We should continue to play like this; the rest will follow."

Man of the match: Rahul Sharma: "I am happy that management, Yuvi Paaji and Sahara group, are backing me. I very my pace and bounce I extract is my key because of my height. The figures look good. it's difficult to give 7 runs in a over leave alone in four. I am happy. I have to continue to work hard - I have done well in the domestic cricket- and I want to turn out for India. God willing and with blessing of my parents and well-wishers I will get there."

Good bye and good luck.

Pollard to Sharma, no run, Rahul Sharma, who bowled so wonderfully well earlier in the evening, gets a bouncer and he can't touch it. Mumbai win. Pune crash out to their seventh successive loss.

Kevin: "I can't believe that Manish Pandey has been successful for so long at a semi-international level with just one actual stroke in his arsenal - the heave over midwicket. Seriously, just 6 runs on the offside out of nearly 60? I can't believe nobody's noticed this."

Pollard to Uthappa, SIX runs, Sweet! Overpitched outside off stump and Robin plays an awesome shot. He just seemed to caress it and it has flown over extra cover.
