Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Match

Rohit Sharma: It was a good game, we wanted this win badly. We were pretty determined to win this and we stuck to our plans. We need to go back and understand what we need to do as a team. Pollard's form is crucial and he is peaking at the right time. I specially want to thank the Mumbai crowd. They have been superb and have always enjoyed good cricket. Unfortunately, it's our last game here and they have been waiting to see Pollard fire. Glad they got what they wanted. Whichever venue we get to play, we need to go out there and play good cricket. We have been playing here for so many years and we are not sure which ground we are going to play but we have to do well.

Gautam Gambhir: We are not gonna give any excuses and we were probably 15 runs short. Their bowlers did well in the death overs and we couldn't do that. We needed an innings like Pollard but you need to give credit to the bowlers as well. They restricted us to 172 which is always a chaseable total on this wicket. I'm not someone who gives excuses about dew and et al. We are professional cricketers and we should be doing well with the bat and ball no matter how the conditions are. The toss and dew factor is not in our hands and we need to do well in the rest of the games.
