Mumbai Indians skipper and Man of the Match for his 51* off 24 Rohit Sharma after win: "It was a good game and it was nice to get over the line. It was a small ground and we started off positively. We knew we had to get there in 14 overs. So that mindset to go after the bowling that made our job easier. We may not have fielded and bowled exceedingly well today, but our batters once again showed their class. It was a tough wicket to bat on and I tried to hit straight. Our semi-final opponents Chennai Super are on a bit of a roll but we would like to win one more match against them."
