Right from the time Sachin Tendulkar was dismissed, it has been Mumbai Indians all the way. Rohit Sharma and Herschelle Gibbs did a sterling job with the bat, before Mumbai Indians choked the Kolkata batsmen in their chase. Bisla and Gambhir fell in the first eight balls of the innings and while Kallis and Pathan helped the recovery, the required rate kept climbing against the bowling of Malinga and co.

To be fair, Kolkata did not have much of a chance chasing this big a score with their best batsman dismissed for a duck. Stay tuned for the presentation.

Presentation:

Gambhir: It was an outstanding innings from Rohit, the bowling has been doing well and this was one of those off days. If someone plays such kind of knocks, cannot do a lot. Every time we walk out, we want to play to me, Kolkata has been very lucky to me, beating them feels special

Harbhajan: Nice to see the boys coming into form, Rohit played brilliantly, Gibbs was good, luckily we now have an opener who is fit now. We got Gambhir out early which helped. We can take a positive from the way Pathan batted, hope to see him continue batting this way.

Rohit Sharma, man of the match: To be honest, there was no game plan, wanted to go there and spend some time, which is what usually helps. Wanted to bat 20 overs. We were batting first and wanted to get a decent target, knew that the pitch is quite slow. Managed to keep wickets in hands, which helped. Partnership always plays a crucial part and we were just trying to bat for about 15 overs and take it from there.

There is a second match in the day between Chennai and Delhi, so do hop over to it!
