Mumbai: Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Friday said that teammate Kieron Pollard's stunning diving catch to dismiss Michael Hussey was the turning point in Mumbai Indians' eight-run victory over defending champions Chennai Super Kings in a thrilling IPL encounter in Mumbai.
"When we went in to field we thought we were 15-20 odd runs short against such a strong side as Chennai. But Pollard took that great catch off Hussey which I feel was the turning point and Rohit (Sharma) also took a great catch to send back Dhoni. If Hussey and Dhoni were there any target was gettable," said Harbhajan who took five for 18 in four overs.
MI made 164 for four thanks to a 48-ball 87 from Rohit and stopped Chennai Super Kings at 156 for nine to clinch their fourth victory over the holders in eight clashes in the IPL history.
