Presentation

Ben Hilfenhaus who bowled exceedingly well in the Man of the Match and here is what he says: "It was a fantastic game of cricket. There was a lot of pressure. The way their bowlers finished off gave us an idea of how to bowl on this wicket. Bollinger and Morkel did well to keep the pressure on. This was a bit of a two paced wicket. Some fantastic catches and they were taken at crucial times. Catches win matches."

The winning CSK Captain MS Dhoni says: "It was important to back Jadeja. The conditions were different. The ball was not stopping. We needed to tell him what has to be done. He had to know his strengths as well. He delivered for us. I think Hilfenhaus bowled really well. Dinesh Karthik took on Jadeja early on and we decided to keep the spinners for the latter part of the innings. We could have got 15-20 runs more."

The losing Mumbai Indians' Skipper Harbhajan Singh says: "I think we bowled really well in the last 10 overs. The way Dinesh Karthik and Pollard batted was a treat. It would have been nice to go away with a win. This was the kind of wicket where you can hit the good length deliveries. I could not manage to hit a six. I am proud of the way the boys played. These two teams are proabably the two biggest in the IPL. It was a good game of cricket."
