All the hype coming into this was about Rohit's record at Eden, but it was Ishan Kishan's blitzkrieg which stole the show today. MUM are doing it again, aren't they? They've so rudely slipped into the top four, just when you would have started thinking that it's too late. It's never too late. Funny that, because it's midnight. I'm out of here. We're out of here. This is Sagar Chawla signing off on behalf of Akshay Maanay, Nikhil Jadhav, Abhinand Raghavendran, Srivathsa and our scorer Praveen. Bye!
Ishan Kishan, MoM: Had a chat with my skipper, he told me to go there and back myself. My plan was to look at the ball till the last moment and keep smacking. Have to believe in yourself, your strengths. Win was important for us, point was to stay there, back yourself and put up a good show. I'm okay with batting anywhere depending on the team situation.
Rohit, MUM captain: As a team we tend to pick up during the month of May. Hope we do it sooner. Never easy to be on the line all the time and be desperate for wins towards the second half. Would like to start the tournament on a high. But in the past three years, we've been at the bottom of the table. I'm glad we came together and performed as a team today. Without a doubt, the way Ishan Kishan batted fearlessly, that was the changing point. I was assessing the pitch at that point, ball was sticking in the pitch, it wasn't easy, but he changed the game. We were 65 after first ten overs, but scoring 145 in last ten overs is a magnificent effort by all the batters. Ben Cutting as well, he hasn't been getting much opportunity as well, it's not easy to come out and play shots like that. We as a team are prepared to post a total or chase down what is put in front of us. Can't do much with the toss. Have to come out here and play good cricket. Last few games, the team has come together and taken responsibility.
Ben Cutting - Yeah good win. It was a bit tight the other night. Nice to get out there for a bat. Played a couple of big hits and had a bowl too. That's the nature of the T20 League, so many strong batters. You just have to wait for your time and do the best when you can. I think we are building momentum definitely. We have three games to go, two at home and one at Delhi; let's see what happens.
Karthik, KOL captain: 200 is always a big ask. We didn't bat well enough. If we had held on to our catches, you never know. It was a good batting wicket. When you lose wickets in the powerplay, you are always playing catch up. We weren't in the game after the powerplay. We just took it as a normal game. Chin up for the boys and keep moving forward. We need to raise our skill levels and that is the most important thing. This kind of losses can put you down and that is where I as a leader need to stand up. Be honest about it. We need to believe and I have to make them believe we can make it to the playoffs.
11.32pm local: KOL dismantled here at Eden. Such is the margin of the result that MUM have climbed past them to fourth spot. After Mumbai registered the highest T20 League total at this venue, it didn't take long for the run-chase to dramatically go off the rails for the hosts. They lost Narine second ball, and then Lynn was run out just when he was finding some rhythm. The run-chase never appeared like taking off, probably down to the psychological wood that Mumbai have on them. As it often happens with big targets, you have to go for the jugular, and in doing that, sometimes it comes off and many times it doesn't. Unfortunately, KOL fell in the second category.

Third umpire called in for a run-out check. Hardik is not sure. He might have broken the stumps without the ball. Karthik is the one in question. The ball is in touch with his fingers as he whips the bails. Touch and go this. Kumar Dharmasena is the one in the hot seat. He is going for different angles. OUT!
Timeout! It has been all Mumbai so far. They started by getting rid of Narine in the first over. Lynn was thrown under the bus by Uthappa and Russell's promotion up the order also did not work out. This is the last recognised pair for KOL and they have to play out of their skins to pull this off.
