Needing 180 to win, MI got off to a bad start as Ajit Chandila dismissed the two legends Sachin Tendulkar (1) and Ricky Ponting (4) in quick succession. Tendulkar fell top edging a sweep to short fine-leg while Ponting lobbed the ball straight back to Chandila attempting to work one to the leg side. 

Siddharth Trivedi then struck removing Rohit Sharma (2) caught by Shane Watson to have MI reeling at 26 for 3 in 6.1 overs. It only got worse for MI as Kieron Pollard (1) had his stumps in disarray attempting to drive Stuart Binny without any footwork.

At the halfway stage MI were 42 for 4, still requiring 138 runs. Dinesh Karthik (30) trying to break the shackles fell caught by Brad Hodge off James Faulkner. Wickets continued to fall as Rishi Dhawan (0) was caught at short mid-wicket. Harbhajan Singh was the next man to be dismissed; he was involved in a mix-up with Ambati Raydu, with both batsmen ending up on the same end of the pitch. Mitchell Johnson (11) and Ambati Raydu (27) fell in the space of six deliveries and MI were eventually bundled out for 92 – their second lowest total in the IPL.

Earlier RR won the toss and elected to bat. Openers Watson and Rahane (68*) started off well with two boundaries off Mitchell Johnson before Watson whacked Dhawan for a six over square leg. Rahane also came down the track and hoisted Pragyan Ojha for a six in the fifth over.

 Watson continued his assault with three boundaries off Lasith Malinga as RR made 58 runs in the power play. Pollard got the vital breakthrough having Watson (31) caught behind.

Rahul Dravid sprang a surprise when he had Dishant Yagnik bat up the order; the wicket-keeper batsman played fearlessly hitting Pollard for a six, as RR raced to 88 for 1 at the halfway stage. Rahane and Yagnik together put on 53 run for the second wicket. 

Harbhajan Singh finally got Yagnik (34) caught by Tendulkar at short fine-leg. Stuart Binny (4) departed soon after he was run out by Johnson. Brad Hodge (27*) slogged Harbhajan Singh for a six as RR got a move on in the final overs. Some hefty blows at the end including 19 runs from the last over off Malinga helped RR reach 179 for 3 in 20 overs. Rahane carried his bat to remain undefeated on 68.

Presentation

Ricky Ponting: Fair to say we were outplayed in all three departments. The pitch looked very good but it held up a little when we batted, full credit to RR for the way they batted. We need to address a few areas of our game that we need to talk about. I don't think the conditions were too bad, we needed to adapt quicker. The way they bowled a lot of slower balls, took the pace off it, they did well. It's better to lose these games early in the tournament than later.

Rahul Dravid: It was brilliant, couldn't have asked for better. Wanted our A game to come out, I think our A+ game came out. We discussed it during our meeting to get Yagnik out and try to unsettle the spinners. Demoting myself wasn't a big deal, had we lost a wicket early I would have come out to bat. We believe we are a good side and can beat teams, but it's early days in the tournament. Gives a lot of confidence.

Ajinkya Rahane, man of the match: Again I wanted to bat till the last over. We all know that Mumbai is a big team and we did a good job. That's my natural game, even last year I was doing the same thing and will love to continue doing that. Watson's a crucial player, Yagnik and Hodge did their job very well too.
