That will be it for us from this game. Another one starts in five minutes, from Delhi. and there is Nitin's bulletin to read as well. For the moment, this is Abhishek Purohit signing off. Cheers!

Kieron Pollard is the Man of the Match. Pollard: "Been a long time since I have come up and actually done something for the team. Guys at the top of the order have been doing the job for us. Today I backed myself to do well."

Sachin Tendulkar: "I thought it was a good total, may be short by 15-20 runs, some good ground fielding, and brilliant start with the bowling. Bhajji gave us a good start and the others carried on. Today Pollard struck some big sixes that is what is he capable of. Symmo is capable as well, and I am sure there is more to come. Pollard is brilliant in the field. We all know the value of having him."

Adam Gilchrist: "Definitely we were in the game when our bowlers kept them to 160. Lot of credit to our bowling. Our batting did not produce the goods today. We have left a lot up to Shaun every time he has played, we cannot leave it up to him each time."

krishna: "More than half the tournament is done and Mumbai has the Highest points, Highest Net Run Rate, Orange Cap and Purple Cap Go Mumbai..."

So after the wobble at Jaipur, Mumbai are back to what they do, choking off the opposition after putting up a decent total. Malinga, Harbhajan and Munaf going for 62 runs and picking up six wickets. Game over. Hang on for the presentation

19.6
1
Patel to Praveen, 1 run

good straight drive from PK off a fuller one to long on, but that is a comfortable win for Mumbai

19.5
Patel to Praveen, no run

slower one from Munaf angling in, PK backed away but could not do anything with it as it kept a touch low

19.4
1
Patel to Chawla, 1 run

short of a length and he goes hard at the pull, but the ball tamely rolls away to Pollard at deep midwicket

19.3
1
Patel to Praveen, 1 run

makes room but Munaf follows him with a low full toss, and he works it away through square leg

kishan: "The only way to neutralize a Malinga is to have a Lance Klusner."

19.2
1
Patel to Chawla, 1 run

backs away and steers a length ball to Malinga at third man

surendranath: "I always visualize Malinga in T20 as a Tequila shot. His spell (4 overs) will be short but they are really effective!!!! :) "

19.1
W
Patel to Harris, OUT

1
Malinga to Harris, 1 run

goes hard at a full one and inside edges it towards square leg

18.5
W
Malinga to Marsh, OUT

that's the end of Marsh, and that's the game for Mumbai! pacy low full toss, Marsh tried to smash it over midwicket, but was late on the shot and looped it straight to Sachin on the edge of the circle at midwicket, 160 looks like 180 when you have someone like Malinga

18.4

Malinga to Chawla, 1 leg bye
