Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians, 13th T20 Match, IPL 2014

Commentary

Chennai won by 7 wkts | Chennai Super Kings Vs Mumbai Indians Live Score, 13th T20 Match

That's all we have for you from here. Do join us for another double header tomorrow. Until then it's goodbye from all of us here....
Mohit Sharma: 'My captain told me to mix the pace well as it will be difficult to play on this wicket. 140 was a good score on this wicket, but McCullum played well. The pitches here are not that different from the ones in India and I will continue to experiment with the slower deliveries'.
Mohit Sharma is the Man of the Match
Dhoni: 'I think the death bowling was superb and we were under some pressure during the middle overs as they had a good partnership going. We didn't know how the pitch will behave and Mohit bowled a superb spell by changing the pace perfectly. Our openers are complimenting each other well and along with some big shots they are stitching together a good partnership. Our bowling was very good today and I am pretty happy with the overall performance of the team. '
Rohit Sharma: 'We needed a target of 160 but we didn't get that. We did not get off to a great start and that put us on the back foot. Bowlers tried their best but 140 was not enough. I wanted to finish off the innings and bat as long as possible but was not able to do that today. We have not scored more than 140 in the last 3 games, so we need to work hard on that.'
An easy walk in the park for Chennai, their bowlers set up the match for them with a disciplined line and length and then McCullum found some much needed form to remain unbeaten on 71. Nothing went Mumbai's way today as their bowling was not upto the mark and their ground fielding was also pathetic. Smith provided them a rollicking start and there was no looking back for Chennai even though they lost successive wickets in the middle. Another professional performance by Chennai. Stay tuned for the presentation...
