Ponting: "I may lose most of my finger nails. Disappointing not to have won the game. We have to analyse our game. I think with our bowing today we were a bit behind. We had a good chat about Jaspreet and he didn't let anyone down."
Kohli: "Chris batted beautifully. We knew 157 was enough, The dew came on. They way they fielded was good. The way Unadkat bowled that over towards the end was good."
Gayle is the Man of the Match: "I might come out swinging early in another game. I needed to stay there. The ball was seaming around. The key was to put up a partnership with Christian. If I was bowling offspinners I'd probably take 4 for 10 runs because I'm the best offspinner around!"
Show us Chris! Been ages since we've seen you with the ball.
That's it from us here. We hope you enjoyed the coverage. Tomorrow's it's Sunrisers taking on Pune Warriors in Hyderabad. Thanks for the mails. Cheers!
End of match: Virat Kohli was the most pumped up of the lot, rushing towards the bowler. Plenty of red shirts gather for the huddle. A tight finish to make up for the lukewarm start yesterday.
Vinay: "I was always looking to bowl a yorker to Pollard. Many things going through my mind. We had planned not to bowl a length ball. Three years back I would have bowled to his strength, but I am more mature now. It was a wonderful effort."
Every season we keep asking why Mumbai are so conservative with Pollard. Had he batted one position higher today, it could have been a different story. You have to feel sorry for Dinesh Karthik. He really turned the game. Couldn't go all the way.
The spells by Kartik and Unadkat's final over were also crucial. Dan Christian outdid himself once again at the death.
Are we in for a Super Over?
8 from 2. The big man has to give it everything here
Pollard walks in.
Kohli has a chat with Vinay
Down to the wire folks, 10 required off 6 balls.
Unadkat stops short before delivery on seeing Karthik back up too far. That was a sporting gesture
Anxious faces in the RCB camp for sure. 24 runs off that over from Christian
