Post match Comments from the Team Captains
Virender Sehwag: “140-150 is a good total here, everything went Mumbai’s way. After 10 years I played a maiden today, it was a plan. I thought let me play against Malinga. We have ten debutants for Delhi in the squad, it will take a little time for it to come together.”
Sachin Tendulkar: “In the second over itself, Malinga started so well, spectacular bowling and the fielding was very good as well. The ball was keeping low, adjusting to the pace of the track was important. Rohit is a gifted player, today we saw how he played shots on a difficult track.”
Man of the Match, no prizes for guessing, was Lasith Malinga
