That's all from us on this game, but we have another match coming us soon. So do join us for that. Cheers

Steven Smith is MoM. He says: "We just thought about playing straight. The ball stayed low, holding quite a bit, so it was important to play straight. Try to hit down the ground, not across the line. The conditions didn't change, it stayed low and slow throughout the game."

Harbhajan Singh: "The wicket was low, but I think we had put our minds to the job, we could have got around 130. We haven't been able to rotate the strike well, but hopefully we will get another game. We will have to wait and watch, but if we do get another job, we will try to improve."

Simon Katich: "The wicket was quite low. Our quicker bowlers did a great job to restrict them. Rohrer and Smith batted well, that partnership was good, but would have been nice to do that earlier in the innings. Our guys tried to attack the stumps as much as possible. We left a few holes on the off side to encourage shots against that sort of line."

Mature innings from Rohrer and Smith. It all started going back in NSW's favour when Rohrer came down at 5 down for not much and kept coming down the track to nudge the ball for singles. Mumbai attacked, but unlike T&T when they defended 98, Mumbai's attacking men sacrificed the single-savers, not the boundary-savers. Rohrer and Smith played smartly. Smith took full control once he saw the stability from Rohrer at the other end. Unlike bars and pubs in India on Gandhi's birthday today, the group is now wide open. Mumbai can still be knocked out. Any team can go through, perhaps even T&T, but that might be a stretch

Ahmed to Smith, FOUR runs, Smith finishes it off in style. Makes room and chips a length ball over extra cover. They win with three overs to go, that should their net run-rate some good too

"@Ninad - I agree. What about Akhtar? Whatever he speaks and writes is our problem, right?" SudhaSwings has a strong point too
