11.48pm Top defensive bowling from CSK, that. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Until next time, this is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Thilak Ram and Chandan Duorah. Good night and cheers.

11.25pm That is that. CSK halt MI's winning streak at home and seal their first win away from home this IPL. They have defended 206 at the Wankhede, thanks to excellent defensive bowling. Pathirana led the way with 4 for 28 in his four overs. He bows to Bravo, his bowling coach. Bravo would've been proud of his effort from his bowlers. Do stick with us for the post-match presentation.

Gaikwad, CSK captain: Our young wicketkeeper scoring three sixes down the order helped a lot and I think that was the difference. To start off, on this kind of ground, you need 10-15 extra runs. We were looking at 215-220, but Bumrah bowled well. Bowling-wise, we were spot on with our execution. Even in powerplay, I would have taken six overs for 60. These kinds of venues demand both skills: batting and bowling. Our Malinga bowled exceptionally well and nailed those yorkers. Not to forget - even Tushar and Shardul bowled well. We encourage everyone to be in a good headspace. Nothing, Jinks was carrying a bit of a niggle. Thought it was better for him to open and get away quick runs. I'm fine batting anywhere.

Hardik, MI captain: Definitely, gettable. But they bowled pretty well and Pathirana was the difference. They were smart with their plans and used the longer boundary well. They got the hang of it and they have a man behind the stumps telling them what's working. The ball was slightly gripping and they got ahead of the game. Until Pathirana came, we were on course for the total. It was just about what was best at that point (on whether they could have used a spinner to Dube?). To seamers it was more difficult to hit on this wicket. We are now on the road for the next four games. If we are smart, we can get the goal we want.

Pathirana, Player of the Match: When we bowled in powerplay, I was nervous. I then came to do my regular things. I don't think about results and I just think about execution. First of all, I was having a niggle before two weeks and all support staff and players helped me. That's the main thing to have my form.

Thakur: Much-needed  win. Playing against opponents like MI, especially at the Wankhede is not easy. Rohit, Ruturaj and Shivam the way they batted...but at the end of the day, we held our nerve better. We spoke about keeping it simple, meaning we need to have fielders where we bowl. This is a repeated pitch and MI played on it on April 11. We felt we needed to bowl slower ones into the pitch. Pathirana was magical and the way he bowled the yorkers was amazing to see. Not much dew today. When Rohit was going strong, we felt the game was sliding away a little but I wanted to challenge Rohit to hit me on the bigger side. If he can't, it might be the turning point.

Sudhir: "In hindsight, those hits from Dhoni towards the very end (20) have made the difference. Dhoni is in top form this year making an impact just when it's needed. I bet he is going to be back for one more season."

Sampath Bandarupalli, our stats wiz: This is the first time Rohit Sharma remained unbeaten in an unsuccessful run-chase in the IPL. His team won on all 18 previous instances where he remained unbeaten in a run-chase.
