So, that's all from us. The much-hyped Mumbai-Chennai encounter ended on a winning note for Mumbai Indians. MI would be quite happy with the performance and would be hoping to continue this performance in the coming games as well. Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings would try to point out weak links while analyzing tonight's performance against MI. Hope you enjoyed our live coverage. Join us tomorrow as DC and SRH clash in an exciting encounter. Till then goodbye. 
Hardik Pandya (Man of the Match): It feels really good to help the team win and to contribute to it. It's been seven months since I played much competitive cricket. Have batted and batted and batted in the nets. I am someone who loves to have game time and I am hitting them really well at the moment. Yes the injury happened and then the controversy too. These seven months weren't easy and I wasn't sure of what to do. This award is special and I dedicate it to all those who stood by me during those tough times. My goal is to keep performing and hopefully, help India win the World Cup.
Rohit Sharma (Winning Captain): I think every game we play in the IPL is important. Having lost two games at the start, suddenly every match becomes important. We don't want to keep that task of having to win many games at the end, it's really difficult. We just wanted to play the brand of cricket Mumbai Indians are known for. We just kept ourselves in the game all the way through and those are good signs. I thought 170 was a fighting total here because you never know. We knew that there was something in the pitch and if we could knock wickets early, things could work. That's exactly what happened. We didn't start off well with the bat but we finished really well. With the ball, we were extremely clinical. To defend a 170 score at Wankhede, you need to be really good with the ball and we were with the fielding also being extremely efficient. That's why I can't pinpoint a single match-changing event, there were so many of them. Jason has been great for Australia with the new ball and we all know what he is capable of. Did the same for us and his spell early on set the tone. Rahul also seemed promising, bowled just the two overs but there was a reason for that as MS and Kedar play spin well. So, I went on with the pacers.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni: I think quite a few things went wrong for us. We started well, were right on the mark for the first 10-12 overs. Then, a few catches were dropped, a few misfields, the death over bowling wasn't great. We don't have bowlers who hit the deck, it was slightly tough on them. We do have one-on-one plans, we needed to know where we could cut-off the boundaries, which batsmen to target,a boundary less or two could have made a difference to a 10-12 run over or a 7-run over. We needed to build some momentum, but we need to know when to plan for those. It is a tough thing - this so-called momentum, it doesn't really matter, a good start from the bowlers will make things tight, once you set the tone, the game goes along in that flow. We will have to see the wicket for the next game, we have to see the combination. Bravo has an hamstring injury, we don't have a few players, we already have some injuries, David Willey isn't there, he has his own problems, Lungi Ngidi isn't with us as well, we will have to look at the pitch and then decide on the right combination.
Mumbai Indians will be taking a lot of positives from this game. Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings will hope to rectify their mistakes that they made in tonight's game.

Exceptional performance from Mumbai Indians tonight. Each and every player ticked their boxes to contribute in some or the other way. Rohit Sharma would be quite happy and proud with the performance. The win will certainly raise the confidence levels for all the players. All in all, a sound performance from MI.
