Jayasuriya and Bravo seal Mumbai win

Inspired by Sanath Jayasuriya's 3 for 14, the best figures of the tournament, the Mumbai Indians put their off-field troubles aside and pulled off their first win

Scorecard summary
Kolkata Knight Riders137/8(20 overs)
Mumbai Indians138/3(18.4 overs)

So after four losses, the Mumbai Indians are on the board. A seven-wicket win, set into motion by Shaun Pollock's two-wicket first over, maintained by a stellar display of left-arm spin bowling by Sanath Jayasuriya, and finished off by Dwayne Bravo and Robin Uthappa, who added 113 for the fourth wicket. Bravo remained unbeaten on 64 and Uthappa on 37. A fantastic stand after Mumbai lost three early wickets.

Ganguly wrung in the changes but his captaincy lacked oomph. Mumbai won with Tendulkar out for the fifth game in a row, and with Harbhajan Singh banned for 11 games. Pollock is all smiles. Bravo is happy to have played a winning role tonight and credits his captain and Jayasuriya. He hopes Mumbai can take this momentum forward. His really was a truly flamboyant, West Indian innings. A pleasure to watch.

Tonight its the Mumbai team singing. No cries of 'Korbo, lorbo, jitbo, re' from the Eden Gardens, Shah Rukh Khan or Usha Uthup. The Knight Riders' second loss in a row. And they've lost McCullum and Ponting.

Captains' speak: First the losing one, Dada: "We didn't bat well on a good batting track. It was a score to fight because Mumbai had not done well. But Bravo and Uthappa batted well. I gave Ishant three overs and had to hold him back. We dropped a catch but credit to the batsmen. We haven't batted well but there are plenty of games to go."

Shukla gets the most sixes award. He hit a couple.

Now Pollock: "It was nice. We needed to win to build confidence. It was a situation that could have slipped away. But Bravo and Uthappa played superbly. If I can be honest, we were looking for the smallest possible [total]. We managed to apply pressure all through, and Sachin might be back for the next game. Its a nice start for us."

Shah Rukh Khan hands over the Man-of-the-Match award to Jayasuriya, who bowled excellently for figures of 4-1-14-3, two catches, a hand in a run out, and 18 off 13 balls.

This is Jamie Alter signing off on behalf of all of us at Cricinfo, but do come back and join me tomorrow, for the Delhi Daredevils v Bangalore Royal Challengers game at 20:00 local, 14:30 GMT. Until then, cheers!
