Presentation starts: Noticed how Nita Ambani always stands in attention like she's in a school assembly?

Dravid: "We thought we had a chance. We were under the pump a little bit. Little panic among the youngsters. There are positives."

Harbhajan: "Malinga you can bring him any time. If Shah had batted three more overs the game would have finished. The dew was a problem, but when you have 197 on board, the opposition still has to keep the score moving."

Man of the Match Pollard: "The team needed that impetus. Royals played really well, but we knew 10-11 runs every over would be difficult, fantastic atmosphere. You can say that (Mumbai my second home)."

Thanks for your company today and the mails. We'll see you again tomorrow. Cheers!

End of match: Mumbai win by 27 runs but the match looked a lot closer than that. That over from Malinga was the turning point. Gave Mumbai the edge, but it was still not yet over. In a match of so many individual performances, the evening belonged to Pollard - 4 for 44 of 4.

Kevon Cooper hands over the Purple Cap to Munaf. So Mumbai are right on top with six points and Rajasthan drop to fourth.

Mahesh: "Pollard sure deals only with 6's and 4's.. In his 64, he hit four 6's, six 4's and finished with 4/44 in 4."
