Commentary

The presentation is coming up.

Harbhajan Singh is the Man of the Match: "Great feeling winning two cups in one year. It was a little easier to score with the new ball. The ball was getting a bit wet. That over I took three wickets was probably the best I've bowled the last three months. I didn't practice much before this series, I was traveling to the US."

Dwayne Smith is the Man of the Series: "Would like to thank my batting coach Robin Singh. It was good to see we could move to 200 if you saw where we were at after ten overs."

Ajinkya Rahane wins the Golden Bat for his 288 runs. The Golden Wicket goes to the 41-year-young Pravin Tambe for his 12 wickets.

Dravid: "How good was Rahane and Samson? We gave them too muchy to do. Mumbai were the better side. Terrific effort from the team, and Tambe as well. It was a close game till the end, otherwise a great final. I've loved working with Rajasthan."

Rohit Sharma: "It was a nerve-biting game. I would like to thank Sachin and Dravid for what they've done for Indian cricket. We thought the dew would come in. Maxy finished off really well. We held our nerve in the end. Winning this was like the icing on the cake."

Rohit collects the rather small Champions League trophy. Rajiv Shaukla was kind enough to help him lift it. The rest of the team joins in. The fireworks are on, the confetti in the air.

That's it from us here. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for the mails. I'm off now to discuss this game. Cheers and good night!

End of match: Mumbai take the double of the IPL and Champions League title the same year. Chennai Super Kings did it in 2010. Sachin Tendulkar is carried by his team-mates waving the Mumbai Indians flag! Team owner Nita Ambani is there too joining in the celebrations.

DM: "In retrospect, it's better that RD's team came second, so there won't be much rash talk by the media. Had MI lost after a Sachin failure, the press would be all on his case ruining the moment for both him & RD. As for pure cricketing terms....more often than not it's the real best squad that wins a big tournament and this year MI deserved the double, they have an amazing squad. Congrats MI & farewell in colour shirts to the legends!"

Aaram: "And once again, it ends by Dravid in the shadows, unheralded, being second best.. Just breaks my heart. He deserves more!"

Gaurav: "Feeling really sad for Dravid. RR should have won this, but thats way game goes. Well played MI..Take a bow both legends. Thanks for you memories. You both were the reason I started watching Cricket."

If Mumbai were winning it for one man they certainly have. Fine farewell for Sachin Tendulkar. Dravid's side really fought but 203 was always going to be tough. Hodge would have made a difference though. 7 wickets in three overs really nailed down the Royals. Mumbai win this by 33 runs but that victory margin doesn't reflect how closely fought it was at one point.

Pollard to Faulkner, OUT, caught at deep midwicket and Mumbai Indians win their second Champions League! Pollard takes his third wicket in the over, Faulkner swings him down to deep midwicket and Smith takes it well in front of the rope

Pollard to Faulkner, no run, the hat-trick ball was a slower one, swings and misses and close to the off stump
18.3
W
Pollard to Shukla, OUT, caught in the deep, Royals have no choice but to go for everything, length ball and lofted down to deep midwicket, taken well in front of the rope
18.2
W
Pollard to Yagnik, OUT, Appeal for a catch behind and Pollard and Karthik look desperate! It was short and wide outside off and Yagnik had to leap to try and upper cut that, there was a sound and Karthik was certain he nicked it, as was Pollard, the umpire slowly walked up to his colleague to consult him and apparrently they came to a consensus about the height

Pollard to Faulkner, 1 run, makes room and drills a fuller delivery down to long-off

Coulter-Nile to Yagnik, FOUR runs, length ball and he bends forward and chips it over square leg, Royals need many more of those
