Presentation:

Rohit: "By far the best game so far. This is what MI is all about, we took some brilliant catches. Wankhede always has some dew and the bowlers did very well. Suyal came back very well and things slowed down for RCB. We kept taking wickets. Important for me to step up and I'm glad I played an important knock. We're keeping our heads up. We need to be positive. Next game against CSK is also very important."

Rohit is the Man of the Match as well.

Kohli: "Very gettable, we could have batted smarter, one more partnership was needed. It was a dream start, we could not capitalise on it. Every team plays hard and these sort of things happen. If we had applied ourselves we could have crossed the line. Not losing hope, we need to win at least five out of the next seven."

That's it from us here. Double-header tomorrow. Thanks for your company. For now, this is Kanishkaa signing off. Good night!

End of the match: Mumbai win their second game at the Wankhede and a good comeback after their UAE horror. They have batted RCB out of this match. We had the Pollard-Starc incident to spice things up.

Anish: "Field day for the match referee, match got over in 4 hours (probably fines for both the captains) and then the fight between Pollard and Starc. IPL Committee will be loving this !! "

Pramod Bhushan: ""Extras" was the difference between the 2 teams"
