Rohit Sharma and Mumbai Indians' bowlers brush past Kings XI Punjab
For the second time in two games, powered by Pollard, Mumbai ransacked runs aplenty from their last five overs
That ends our offerings for the night. See you tomorrow
Kieron Pollard, Man of the Match: "Feels good. Obviously we were on the losing end last game so we wanted to come out and get over the line. After 15 overs we had 100 or so so we needed to step it up. Try to pick your match-ups, try to pick your bowlers. Try to analyse the game. We knew we had a couple of overs from spinners, and we were going to maximum against them. It is good to see Hardik Pandya striking well. You want him to come out and hit. Looking forward to Sharjah. But we need to bat the situation and not the ground."
Rohit Sharma: "Was a great win. We didn't start really well, but we knew, the kind of attack Punjab has, we wanted to capitalise on that towards the back end. Hardik and Pollard back themselves to get those runs in the end. They have done that on many occasions. It is nice to have them in form. Overall very happy with the batting performances. we knew it wasn't going to be easy with the ball. We knew taking early wickets was crucial. We did that. The captain looks good when the bowlers execute plans well. Feels good to get to 5000 runs. I didn't look much into it. Winning the game was more important."
KL Rahul: "I won't say it is frustrating but obviously it is disappointing. We could have easily been three wins out of four. This game, we didn't bowl well at the back end. Got to learn from the mistakes and come back stronger. Another bowling option would be nice. An allrounder would be great. But we will sit with the coaches and decide whether we need to play an extra bowler or the same team."
Big comprehensive win for Mumbai. Didn't always look like that, especially in the first 14 overs of the game. Thy then turned around that slow start thanks to some ordinary KXIP death bowling, but once they had runs on the board, they were too good for KXIP. There was some seam assistance, which Pattinson and Bumrah exploited. And their spinners were excellent. Pollard and Pandya were top notch with their hitting at the death, taking 89 off the last five overs
Last ball coming up
