7.29pm And that is all from our coverage of this game - just in time for you to head over to KKR vs DC. Good night!

QDK: To be totally honest it's a better wicket than Chennai in general, it just came on better. We spoke about it, the coach and Rohit did ask us to come out and be positive today and that's what we did. Enjoyed getting the team to the end, I don't do that often. I just came out and tried to be positive, that's what the coach said and I said sign me up, I want to be positive. There's a way of going about it. Obviously I've played enough to know how to go about it.

Quinton de Kock is the Player of the Match.

Rohit: We needed that win badly after a couple of losses. We did everything right today, right from ball one, and very clinical towards the end as well. Individuals took the responsibilities that were given to them, it was a collective effort. Guys were positive as they got to know we were going to Delhi, because it was a good pitch, not like Chennai! I thought the bowlers did the job for us. In the last 7 overs we gave around 50 runs with 7 seven wickets in hand for them. Playing the conditions is very important. We knew that we're going to play on good pitches after Chennai. We didn't adapt well as a team there, but having said, it looks like from here on the pitch will suit us. There's a lot of discussion that happens around us, because there's a way we want to play. It's very easy to go down when we know they're 110 in 12 overs, it's very easy to lose confidence. But we stuck to our plans. Very happy with Quinny's knock, we know how good he can be. Not to forget Krunal's innings as well.

Krunal: Yeah good to get time in the middle. I got a few balls before I could express myself. It's a good feeling to be back in winning ways, momentum is very important in this tournament. Once you win one, you can win 2-3 games in a row. As a team we like the ball coming onto the bat and this wicket does that. Looking forward to the next three games here and just want to continue this winning momentum. Bumrah has done it day in day out, he bowled those four tough overs and the way he executes is amazing.

Samson: We were a few runs short, 20-25 short. We built it up nicely and didn't capitalise. I think they had a very decent bowling line-up, we also have a good bowling line-up. It's just about our batters performing a little more and I'm sure we'll do it. Till now our bowlers have done a good job. Our bowlers did well but it was a good wicket. It's just about scoring more. The process to do that is to back ourselves and play some positive cricket.


NM Nizam: "More like it! one of the openers bat through. others bat around him"

Malli: "First ball boundary in the last 5 overs sums up death bowling of RR"

7.05pm A win sealed comfortably in the end for Mumbai and, dare I say, the first win for the champions this season that's felt like a vintage performance. The bowlers did exceptionally to hold Rajasthan back in the back end of the first innings and they've found runs from an opener, partnerships in the top order, and a quick finish from Pollard. Fourth place still, but they've put distance between themselves and KKR who play in about 20 minutes. Quinton de Kock, Krunal Pandya - two men who were having lean seasons, have taken them to a satisfying win tonight.

Mustafizur Rahman to de Kock, FOUR runs, full slower ball outside off, lines it up and looks to crunch it over extra cover. Ended up slicing it a little, but that gap was big enough. Tewatia tried to pull it back in after chasing from long-off, couldn't manage it
