Presentation:

Ganguly: The pitch was dry, thought it would turn, good batting by Steven Smith. Good start alright, but it is a long tournament, 15 more matches to go.

Harbhajan: We did not rotate the strike in the middle of the innings, we did not get a good start, all credit to Dinda and Kartik. Pune was the better side.

Steven Smith has been named the man-of-the-match. Tough start, we lost a few early wickets, Robin and I decided to stay on and try and get to 140. Good job by the bowlers to defend the low score. Good way to start the tournament and we hope to carry on the momentum and it was great to play in Mumbai for the first time.

An excellent win for the Pune Warriors India, beating Mumbai Indians in Mumbai after the clinical performance shown by them against Chennai Super Kings.

Ganguly was happy to bat first after losing the toss and that proved to be one of the differences. Chasing was going to be difficult on this slow Wankhede turner and that is exactly what happened, as Mumbai Indians lost three early wickets. Without any momentum at the start of the innings, the Mumbai Indians innings stuttered away and never found their way out of trouble. Credit to Uthappa and Smith's 30s when Pune batted and Dinda's four-wicket haul.

Dinda to Patel, no run, pitched up again and he drives to the covers for no run. Can Dinda get his fifth wicket?
