Mumbai Indians 176 for 4 (Suryakumar 57, Krunal 31*, Rohit 24*) beat Kings XI Punjab 174 for 6 (Gayle 50, Stoinis 29*, Bumrah 1-19) by six wickets


Suryakumar Yadav is the Man of the Match: "Enjoying my new role of opening. Trying to be consistent, trying to give good starts so that the finishers aren't burdened. I'm not thinking too much, trying to be simple."

Rohit Sharma: "We're still alive, good performance tonight. We wanted everyone to come together and put a collective effort. We understand the threat Kings XI bring with their bat, to restrict them was a great effort. The way we went about our chase, we needed some momentum, Hardik could get that by playing his game, which is why I held myself back. I know what shot-making is required at the end."

R Ashwin: "The wicket was sticky, we went well. Not got enough runs at the end. Fought well. The week off rejuvenated the boys. This tournament is not easy. Trying to play the brand of cricket we want to play."

Krunal Pandya: "When I'm playing, he feels pressure outside. When he's playing, I feel pressure outside. The brotherly bond is there. The last game, I was upset about not getting the team through. It was simple, anything is chaseable at this ground. You're a bit more confident with these short boundaries."
