That's all we have from here tonight. Finally an IPL match that wasn't dramatic. Mumbai were ruthless, KKR rusty, and it was a one-sided finish. See you tomorrow with one more

Rohit Sharma the winning captain and also Man of the Match: "Only two players from the squad that lost five matches here in 2014. It is all about executing plans, which we did. We were always ahead of the game, but it was al about being ruthless. I am pretty confident playing the pull shot, I love playing that shot, and I am pretty glad that it came off. Six months is a long time without cricket. I was looking to get some time in the middle. Didn't come off in the first game, but glad it did today. Our pace attack was strong because we planned for Wankhede. Having come here, it did enough for the fast bowlers as well. My job becomes easy if you have such players on the team. It is not easy to play long innings here. Towards the end I just wanted to stay still and hit. Again it is a learning for all of us that once you ate in it is the responsibility of the set batsman to bat as deep as you can."

Dinesh Karthik: "Pretty rusty day to be honest. Don't want to be too analytical about it. The boys know where they need to get better. Pat Cummins and Morgan just finished their quarantine today. So it is not easy to come in and play in this heat."

What a comprehensive win for Mumbai. They lost their second toss in a row but played this one out much better. They did enough but with the bat but their bowling plans were spot on. The bonus was Pollard bowling three cheap overs with his pace off. It takes high skill to bowl in dewy conditions, and they will be pleased they managed to do so
