Presentation:

Ponting: "I may lose most of my finger nails. Disappointing not to have won the game. We have to analyse our game. I think with our bowing today we were a bit behind. We had a good chat about Jaspreet and he didn't let anyone down."

Kohli: "Chris batted beautifully. We knew 157 was enough, The dew came on. They way they fielded was good. The way Unadkat bowled that over towards the end was good."

Gayle is the Man of the Match: "I might come out swinging early in another game. I needed to stay there. The ball was seaming around. The key was to put up a partnership with Christian. If I was bowling offspinners I'd probably take 4 for 10 runs because I'm the best offspinner around!"

Show us Chris! Been ages since we've seen you with the ball.

That's it from us here. We hope you enjoyed the coverage. Tomorrow's it's Sunrisers taking on Pune Warriors in Hyderabad. Thanks for the mails. Cheers!

End of match: Virat Kohli was the most pumped up of the lot, rushing towards the bowler. Plenty of red shirts gather for the huddle. A tight finish to make up for the lukewarm start yesterday.

Vinay: "I was always looking to bowl a yorker to Pollard. Many things going through my mind. We had planned not to bowl a length ball. Three years back I would have bowled to his strength, but I am more mature now. It was a wonderful effort."

Every season we keep asking why Mumbai are so conservative with Pollard. Had he batted one position higher today, it could have been a different story. You have to feel sorry for Dinesh Karthik. He really turned the game. Couldn't go all the way.

The spells by Kartik and Unadkat's final over were also crucial. Dan Christian outdid himself once again at the death.

Vinay Kumar to Pollard, 1 run, Vinay holds his nerve and bowls a yorker! All Pollard can do it drill it down to long-on, Vinay stretched his arms in deliht as soon as Pollard played the shot because he knew there was no way that was going for four

Are we in for a Super Over?

Vinay Kumar to Pollard, FOUR runs, well he's bashed a four! It was a low full toss and he made room and smashed it over the bowler, it was dead straight, appeared to fall on the rope on the half volley, the umpire signalled a four but then decided to check again. From one angle it looked like it bounced just before the rope so a four it is

8 from 2. The big man has to give it everything here

Vinay Kumar to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, no hat-trick for Vinay but it will only be a single to deep midwicket, Harbhajan swings and gives Pollard the strike
19.3

Vinay Kumar to Rayudu, OUT, Vinay knocks down the off stump and he has taken two in two! Vinay gets the ball to nip back in, Rayudu was deep in the crease looking to cut, he was cramped for room and the ball crashed onto the off stump and sent it back by a few yards

Pollard walks in.

19.2
W
Vinay Kumar to Karthik, OUT, Karthik's fighting knock comes to an end! He tries to club a length delivery over the on side, gets high on him and it results in a top edge, Agarwal runs forward from deep midwicket and takes the skier

Kohli has a chat with Vinay
