That's it from us at Cricinfo towers. Hope you enjoyed the coverage. See you again tomorrow for the double-header from Ranchi.

Dwayne Smith is man of the match: I know if I spend time at the crease, I will get runs, so that's what I tried to do. I can change my game, especially when we are losing wickets, and it's up to me to be smart and do that. I just have to be confident.

Sharma: There was something in the wicket and we used it to our conditions. Credit to the bowlers who restricted a good batting line up. In our practice games, Mitchell Johnson was bowling really quick, and that's really good for our team. There was pressure on us to perform and we got the result we wanted.

Presentation to follow shortly

Petersen: We were looking at 160, we looked good to get it early on, but lost our way. It wasn't quite like the Wanderers here, because it was a touch slow, but it was a brilliant wicket.

Tanvir to Smith, 1 wide

that seemed to clip the pad, but it makes little difference. Down the legside from Tanvir, and Mumbai stay alive in the competition with their first win

18.3
2
Tanvir to Smith, 2 runs

shortish and wide, slapped to deep point who runs around to cut it off

18.2
Tanvir to Smith, no run

sconed! but no real damage. Smith seems not to have picked up that bouncer and he is hit on the side of the helmet

Pretorius to Pollard, SIX runs

boom! Pollard finishing this in a hurry. It's shortish on middle stump and Pollard swings it high over square leg again. Not pretty, but incredibly destructive

Viljoen to Pollard, FOUR runs

oh dear. Misunderstanding in the field surrenders a boundary. Viljoen delivered a yorker on leg stump, and though Pollard dug it out powerfully, the fielders square on the off side should have stopped it. Neither of them went for it though, and it sneaks between them and to the boundary

16.5

Viljoen to Pollard, SIX runs

full toss on middle stump and Pollard finally connects with a big one. That sails high over cow corner and into the crowd

16.4

full and on the stumps, driven to long on

Viljoen to Pollard, 2 runs

fullish and on the stumps at 142kph, Pollard clips it square on the leg side, and deep midwicket has some work

Viljoen is back

Pretorius to Smith, no run

fuller now, but Smith can do nothing with it. He squirts it into the offside infield

15.5

short of a length, on the stumps again. Smith's pull gets an inside edge onto the pads
