Tendulkar, playing his first match of the IPL, looked off color and made 12 in 16 deliveries with a six and a four. He was bowled by an in-cutter from Joginder Sharma, the way he has been bowled out the maximum times.

Jaysurya was declared the man of the match for his match wining performance. Mumbai Indians have started their second leg on a good note and with this win Mumbai Indians have got 8 points and are tied on points with Delhi Daredevils. For sure it is going to be a nice fight for top 4.
