Presentation: Danny M gets it wrong, thanking everyone on behalf of "LPI", that on a second attempt. Saying that in front of Lalit Modi. Somebody could become Donald Trump to punish that capital offense.

Also Lasith "Slinga" Malinga has now taken the purple cap with that two-wicket over.

Brendon McCullum: "We need to look deep inside ourselves, and find a way now." No excuses.

Sachin Tendulkar: "It was wonderful. A good partnership for us. Sanath picked the pace quite well, because initially I took all the strike.

Everything went to our plan. Maybe we could have got 200, but everything else went right."

Sachin is also the Man of the Match. Thanks for joining us. Okay bye. * Mumbai have run through Kolkata here. Clinical, graceful, aggressive. Sachin and Sanath was the best batting show of this IPL. Although they didn't get 200, Mumbai's bowling was always going to be too good.

Malinga to Dinda, OUT, leg stump again, it's all over, Malinga can't go for the hat-trick because Anureet Singh won't bat. This was a perfect yorker, full, fast, low, base of leg stump, Dinda saves the toe, little mercy that

AB Dinda b Malinga 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Dinda to bat, toe or stump?

Malinga to Mendis, OUT, team-mate to team-mate, and what a beauty, Malinga is already backing away looking to save his toes, but Malinga bowls an accurate slower delivery, 100ks, there is nothing defending the stumps here, and the leg stump goes out

BAW Mendis b Malinga 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Malinga back, they are going in for the kill

END OF OVER:
15 | 7 Runs 1 Wkt | KKR: 95/7 (93 runs required from 30 balls, RR: 6.33, RRR: 18.60)

Khan to Shukla, OUT, good judgement from Jayasuriya, at the long-on boundary, this was a length delivery on the stumps and Shukla got under it, clean shot but doesn't have the power to to clear long-on, where Jayasuriya takes an overhead catch, inches inside the boundary
