That is all for tonight. Good bye

Mohit Sharma is the Man of the Match. Mohit: "Captain said 'wicket was on the slower side, don't bowl the same pace, mix it up, it is hard to hit the slower one on this surface'. When you bowled quicker, the ball came on and was easier to hit. It was not easy to hit when you mix up your pace. We bowled well at the death and they were not able to get as many as they would have wanted to. But 140 was still a good score. McCullum and Smith batted well. The wickets here are similar to India."

Dhoni: "The death bowling was superb. In the middle overs they had a partnership going which meant we were under a bit of pressure which meant the bowlers had to step up. We were not sure how the wicket would play in the second half. Last game we played here we realised the slower one works really well, you had to hit the right areas which Mohit did. If Dwayne Smith gets going, McCullum takes a backseat, and if there is a change in momentum, McCullum takes charge. They have complemented each other very well. Following them we have got Raina, du Plessis, we have good firepower to capitalise."

Rohit: "That was the target, unfortunately we could not get to 160, I was a little disappointed. Did not start well, batted well in the middle but did not finish off well. Was a good batting track. 140 was not a big target. In the last three games we have not scored more than 140 which shows there is some work to do there. Bowlers have done well in all the three games."

MI just cannot get their batting going, and are the only team without a win after three matches

SD: "The critical difference between the two teams today was that McCullum stayed there till the end, while Rohit, Mumbai's batting mainstay, didn't. Of course, Mohit's exceptional bowling has to be accounted for, but Mumbai might have competed better with a few more balls of Rohit, especially towards the end. It's terrible to see the defending champion fare so poorly."
