Batting first, RPS scored 162 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in their 20 overs. After losing two quick wickets for just 9 runs, the duo of Ajinkya Rahane and Manoj Tiwary gave them some stability.
Later MS Dhoni scored a quickfire 40 off 26 balls to guide Pune to a formidable total on a slow Mumbai pitch. Mumbai scored 41 runs from the last 2 overs.
In reply, Mumbai lost wickets in regular intervals and managed to score just 142 runs in 20 overs gifting RPS a comfortable win.
