Just two points separate them, but Rohit's men have played a game less. IPL's El Clasico didn't quite live up to the expectations. And, it's one of those rare occassions when a CSK match didn't go to the final over. Well, it's time to bring down the curtain. Join us tomorrow for Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us down here. Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians captain and Player of the Match: It was better to lose the toss, we were going to chase as well. We knew whether we bat or bowl first, we still had to play good cricket. We can't control the toss. It was a great effort from the boys. Coming out here and playing here is never easy. We had to scrape every run and every wicket. We were right there in the game. He's (Rahul Chahar) a confident young man. His execution skills are very clear and it makes my job easier. He knows what he needs to do and what the team wants from him. He's got variations and skills. He's a good prospect not just for us, but for India as well. I was hitting well, wasn't converting into big scores. At no point, I was worried. I just kept backing myself. I knew the day will come, today was the day. It's a massive boost to any opposition if he's (Dhoni) not around. His presence does a lot for their team. When you don't have him when you're chasing, it becomes slightly difficult. They must have felt his absence. He was sick, uncontrollable. It was a great effort from us. We played some excellent cricket. We are not yet there (playoffs). We have to be at it. Next three - two against KKR and one against SRH. As a team when we go forward, we are clear what to do. We want more good days than bad days. We have learnt from our losses. Krunal Pandya: After playing at Wankhede when you play here, you feel good about it because the wicket is much slower. When you know the wicket is helping, you just need to bowl in the right areas. Today I tried that and hit that back of a length area - some were spinning while some kept straight. I wanted to bowl another over but our team winning is more important. I knew how the wicket was playing so I was just trying to go after the bowlers, sometimes you click, sometimes you don't. I am just happy with my thought process. It's always good to play here compared to Wankhede and we might have to come here to play the first Qualifier. We know these conditions, that'll help. Raina, losing captain: We didn't bat really well and kept losing wickets every 2-3 overs, that cost us the game. We need to take responsibility as a batting unit. Our bowling has been amazing throughout the tournament. 155 was still chaseable. We lost a lot of wickets; in the powerplay and the middle overs. Mumbai played really well. You still need to go out there and take a few balls, need to plan which bowler you are going to attack. We have been losing lot of wickets in the powerplay. We need to sit and decide what to do. Still a long way to go, two games, one or two wins and we go top of the table. We haven't done well as a batting unit, need to regroup with the team. We have the power-hitters and experience, need to relax as a batting unit and hopefully things fall in place. 23:32 Local Time, 18:02 GMT, 23:32 IST: Mumbai Indians have breached CSK's fortress! In the absence of MS Dhoni, the Super Kings have lost a match at Chepauk - their first loss since May 2015. Chasing 156, Watson fell to a half-volley in the very first over and stand-in captain Raina played a horror shot. Post that, Krunal Pandya bowled brilliantly and accounted for Rayudu and Kedar. At 45/4, Murali Vijay (dropped once) kept the scoreboard ticking, but the pressure of required rate got to him and he perished for 38. With the equation being 90 required off 8 overs, the overseas pair of Santner and Bravo had a Herculean task in front of them. The Mumbai bowlers, though, never allowed their opponents to get back into the game. In the end, they skittled out Chennai to their lowest score at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. A victory margin of 46 runs is quite big in T20s. 17.4 Malinga to Santner, out Caught by Pollard!! A low full toss at 119kph, Santner goes for the lofted on-drive. Doesn't get the required elevation and Pollard takes a calm catch at long-on. Mumbai Indian win by 46 runs! Santner c Pollard b Malinga 22(20) [6s-2] Malinga to Santner, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!! 17.3 Malinga to Santner, SIX , too predictable! Santner knows that Malinga will bowl a slower ball. The length was on the shorter side and it sat up nicely for the southpaw. Santner cleared his front leg and thumped it over long-on Imran Tahir, right handed bat, comes to the crease 17.2 Malinga to Harbhajan, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! Third wicket for Malinga! The slower ball does the trick again. The cutter at 114.4kph, it was actually in the slot, but Harbhajan couldn't generate enough power with his big-swing of the bat. Holes out at long-on. Harbhajan c Hardik Pandya b Malinga 1(3) Malinga to Harbhajan, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!! 17.1 Malinga to Harbhajan, no run, slower fullish ball, pushed back to the bowler 53 runs | 3 overs! 16.6 Bumrah to Santner, no run, swing and a miss! Bumrah goes full and wide of off, change of pace and Santner doesn't spot it. Swing his bat hard only to connect with thin air. Just four runs and a wicket off the over 16.5 Bumrah to Harbhajan, 1 run, 136.2kph, in-slanting short of a good length ball, Harbhajan hops in his crease and turns it to backward square leg 16.4 Bumrah to Santner, 1 run, shortish again, pulled towards long-on Harbhajan Singh, right handed bat, comes to the crease 16.3 Bumrah to Chahar, out Caught by Krunal Pandya!! Krunal takes a good running catch! A seam-up short ball and Chahar had to go after it. Looks to pull/heave it away and was a touch late on the shot. Gets it off the lower part of the bat. No timing, whatsoever. Krunal runs in from deep mid-wicket, keeps watching the ball, dives forward to complete a superb catch. Chahar c Krunal Pandya b Bumrah 0(2) Bumrah to Chahar, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!! 16.3 Bumrah to Chahar, wide , Bumrah sees the batter shuffle across and drifts one a tad too straight at 137kph, down leg and that's been wided Next
