Commentary

7.40 pm Kings XI Punjab's campaign has touched earth, their first defeat after five wins. Mumbai have a first victory after five defeats. The upshot from this result is that we have a new table leader, Chennai Super Kings are head of Kings XI on net run rate.

Daniel Alexande: "Lasith Malinga's brilliant death bowling was the difference today "

Nandakiran N: "Pollard is looking as good as he looked in edition 3 of IPL. So Monstrous! Good Games consecutively!"

shantanu: "malinga was not the difference. everybody knows its hard to hit malinga at death so you need to target other bowlers. difference was all the runs lost out due to slow scoring by saha at the start of his innings.maxwell did not get enough strike."

Deepak: "Everybody is talking about pollard and malinga but what about Tare..he was true remarkable his 16 runs just came in 6 balls. unsung Hero "

Kuldeep: "@shantanu: Absolutely. People tend to wrongly associate T20 with just boundaries and big hits. It is the constant rotation of strike in between that actually matters. Both teams will hit boundaries anyway. It is the team takes many 1s and 2s in between and doesn't let panic set in due to many dot balls that wins in the end. Batsmen should learn from Virat Kohli."

I'm sorry but we haven't been shown the presentation today, because of the spill over into the next game. Thank you for all your emails. Stick around for Delhi Daredevils v Rajasthan Royals! Cheers.

Sandeep Sharma to Pollard, SIX runs, he's done it! Pollard has ended Mumbai's run of defeats. He's done it by lofting a length ball lean over the long off boundary. The Wankhede erupts, Mumbai did not lose here last season, they have kept that streak going

Sandeep Sharma has just five to defend off the final over. Faiz: "How crucial was that last over from Malinga which went for 3 runs , during KXIP innings ?????"

Johnson to Pollard, FOUR runs, Pollard you beauty! Johnson has been torn apart. Pollard pulled at a slower ball, and made good enough contact to beat the fielder on the square leg boundary.
