In yet another last over finish in the IPL, the Mumbai Indians edged past the Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 wickets and with a ball to spare at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday.
Mumbai's stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma was delighted with the win, especially as he had been entrusted to lead the side in Ponting's absence. "It is a good start to my captaincy career, I desperately wanted to win this game," said Rohit at the post-match presentation ceremony.
"We fought extremely well and deserved the victory. Dwayne Smith was outstanding in the chase of 160 and we ultimately got over the line," added Rohit.
