Raina: "I think I have learned a lot from Kanpur, and I want to thank the fans here. God has been really kind, and the credit goes to the supporting staff along with all the senior players. I have worked with all the CSK players. Being part of a new franchise, I think we had to enjoy the T20 and we worked hard as a unit to do that. Me and Baz did well upfront today, and we bowled really well to restrict them below 180."

SURESH RAINA is the MAN OF THE MATCH.

The Gujarat Lions were jolted early in their chase with the wicket of Aaron Finch. Suresh Raina continued from where he had left the other night, and joined forces with a belligerent Brendon McCullum to bring the chase back on track. Their partnership set up a platform which helped Dwayne Smith finish off the chase with 13 balls to spare. The Mumbai bowlers were all over the place, and couldn't get the length and line right for the most part. The Gujarat batsmen lapped up the poor bowling, and the chase became a cakewalk in the last five.
