Commentary

Eight sixes in 27 balls by Pollard, Perera's been scarred. Until the end of over 16, this was Sunrisers' game. But at the centre were two of Mumbai Indians' cleanest hitters, and Pollard finished it off in a hurry. The final report should be ready in a bit. Mumbai Indians are on the top of the table now. I'll get a bit of a breather, will be back with the presentation details. Should Steyn have bowled that 18th over instead of Mishra? A lot can be said in hindsight.

Cameron White: "For once, we posted a very good score. We were in the driver's seat and Kieron turned it on is head. Kieron saw Steyn off and took on the other bowlers, he's not an easy person to bowl to. Malinga bowled well at the death. It's a beautiful batting surface, we didn't take enough wickets up front. We need to win two from two to put some pressure on RCB."

Rohit Sharma: "It was an important game for us, hats off to Pollard. You don't need to tell him anything, he plays his natural game. Wankhede wicket has been brilliant throughout. We know the table is very tight, we pulled through. We don't want be complacent. We have to check what's happening with Tendulkar [his arm], I didn't get a chance to talk to him."

Pollard is Man of the Match: "I didn't have any breakfast today, I woke up 1am. It was an important game for us, I backed myself, it's just a matter of chasing the right bowler, Perera was the unlucky one. I haven't fired only in the last couple of games. Dwayne Bravo is one of my best friends, he is always backing me. My fingers have been battered, I have to tape all of them but the right hand is my bowling hand, so I can't do that. I am a power hitter but I love to bat as well. You have to take the good times, and the bad times."

There you are, folks. Thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Another entertaining fixture this IPL. Join us for the double-header tomorrow. Until then, it's goodbye. Cheers.

Perera to Pollard, SIX runs, another six, low full toss and he swings it hard over deep midwicket, his top hand came off there as he made contact, all over

Steyn's completed another economical spell, but has been let down by others today. Seven to win off the final over. Perera again, it started with him, remember.
