That's it from us tonight. I hope you enjoyed the game. Keep coming back for our commentary, and keep sending in your comments. Good night!

One last comment, before we're done for the day, from Nandakiran N. "First 100 of this year's IPL by Simmons. Pollard brought up the 300th six of his T20 career (Only next to Gayle who leads with 435). Santokie picked up his 100th T20 wicket, fastest to get there. Too much to celebrate for WI in one day."

Presentation time. Rohit Sharma signs the match ball, and says he's keeping his fingers crossed, with regards to qualifying. "Anything is possible. The important aspect is, we go back to Bombay, and we hope we put up the performance that is expected of us."

Simmons, unsurprisingly, is the MoM. "Was a very good moment to me, was very excited when I got the call for Mumbai." Asked which shot he enjoyed the most, of all the ones he'd played today: "I like playing my slog sweep, so I enjoyed that one."

Suresh: "Looking at these West Indians, I wish IPL was 10 years older, Brian Lara would have set the stage on fire!"

Anil Kumble says he can't put a finger on what went wrong in the UAE. "I thought the bowlers did exceptionally well to bring the total down to 156. Shreyas Gopal picked up those two wickets, really nice to do a young legspinner doing well." He says all the legspinners have done really well for their teams. "Really glad. Legspinners are attacking bowlers."

Don: "Seriously what is MI doing here, i know it may be the gentlemanly thing to let Simmons get to his 100 here, but MI really couldn't afford to take 2-3 overs just taking a couple of singles to let him get to his 100. I wonder if the NRR they lost from not finishing the match of quick is gonna cost MI a place in the play offs. Honestly, Simmons would have gotten a lot more respect in my books if he had carried on playing aggressively and try and finish the match of rather than just take singles and get to that 100." Lots of people mailing in, saying the same thing.

George Bailey says it was the sort of pitch where it would have been good to chase. You'd have to agree. It did get a little quicker in the second half of the game.

Comfortable win for Mumbai, who have jumped to fifth on the table, with their net run rate taking them above Royal Challengers and Sunrisers for now. Fantastic century from Simmons. Played some outstanding shots, particularly those flat-batted hits down the ground and those fierce square cuts. Kings XI paid for a poor second half of their innings, after a pretty good start, and their bowling wasn't good enough to defend 156 on a good batting pitch. Mumbai have done the double over Kings XI this season.

Shivam Sharma to Pollard, SIX runs, He has the license to go hard now, and he does just that. It's full, floated up into his hitting zone, and he swings it way over long-on.
