Amazingly, we have hardly had any Irfan Pathan fan mail today. Here's one from Vijay Rao: "I would love to see Irfan do well in this season of the IPL and get back to his place in the Indian XI. He should do well being the right hand man (or left-hand; 'cause both are left armers ;) ) of the class-act Zaheer."

Rohit Sharma says he feels proud to be a complete Mumbaikar now. "It wasn't an easy wicket to bat on, anything around 140 was a good target on this, Malinga did very well to help bowl out Delhi for 95. Disappointing to miss out on the World Cup, IPL is a great platform, I have been hitting the ball well in the nets, I just need to continue what I have been doing."

Peter: "Finch bowled in a Sheffield Shield game against Queensland last season. He was only bowled due to a slow over rate and was creamed by Queensland's tailenders."

Pradip Dasgupta: "Finch bowls when Dinda is sitting with 2 overs and 7 runs!"

Have you guys checked out ESPNcricinfo's mobile apps yet?

Davis: "Irfan Pathan joins a growing list of ex-Indian team players looking to fight their way back in. Pathan joins Robin Uthappa (up next match for Pune), Ravindra Jadeja (showed signs of hitting big yesterday), Ishant Sharma ( mixed performance yday and of course the IPL specialist Rohit Sharma."

As we wait for the presentation, check out George Binoy's bulletin for this match.

Presentation ceremony:

Virender Sehwag: "140-150 is a good total here, everything went Mumbai's way. After 10 years I played a maiden today, it was a plan. I thought let me play against Malinga. We have ten debutants for Delhi in the squad, it will take a little time for it to come together."

Sachin Tendulkar: "In the second over itself, Malinga started so well, spectacular bowling and the fielding was very good as well. The ball was keeping low, adjusting to the pace of the track was important. Rohit is a gifted player, today we saw how he played shots on a difficult track."

Man of the Match, no prizes for guessing, is Lasith Malinga, who walks off after getting his award and has to be called back by Bhogle.

That's it from this game, I'm off to start the bulletin for the Pune v Punjab match. Skip over here for commentary.

Tendulkar seals the win, he gets forward and crashes the ball through covers for the boundary to finish off the match with 19 balls to spare, Mumbai were talked up as being one of the favourites for the IPL, they have certainly shown that today with by cantering to victory by eight wickets

whoah, how slow was that? the speed gun doesn't say anything, it was really short as well, Rohit was shaping for a pull early but had to wait for ages before the ball came onto him, helped towards square leg

James: "What does Aaron Finch bowl? I dont think i've seen him bowl before." He bowls a Yardy-esque no-flight, everything-full, left-arm spin. Legstump line is favoured by him

15.6
Finch to Tendulkar, no run

backs away and looks for a swiped towards midwicket, he misses and is struck on the pads, prompting an appeal, umpire's not interested, perhaps because it was sliding down the leg side
