That ends a low-scoring thriller. Should have been an easy win for Mohali but they made it challenging for themselves. They now become the first team to win their first five matches in a season. They next meet Mumbai on May 3, 2014 at 1030 GMT (1400 IST) while Bangalore take on Hyderabad back in Bengaluru on May 4, 2014 at 1430 GMT (2000 IST).

SANDEEP SHARMA HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Says that he is enjoying the moment playing for this team. On knocking off Gayle, he says that it is a big moment for him. He has seen the Jamaican hitting other bowlers many times, so it is a pleasant moment for him.

!

Victorious Mohali captain, George Bailey says that confidence is a really big thing and they are working really well as a unit. Is happy that his team is taking early wickets. With Viru at the top, he says, you know he is going to give you boundaries. Is more than happy to take this start and it is a nice bit of breather before going to India.

AWARDS TIME - CHRIS GAYLE for the most number of sixes(2) and MITCHELL STARC for taking two calm catches near the rope.

!

Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli says that momentum can turn around quickly. Still again today, he admits that his players did not apply themselves as a batting unit and need to go back to the drawing board. Commends the good effort by the bowlers to pull it together. Adds that when you lose momentum in this format, it is difficult to come back. Also says that the past two games were a bit off the radar. Praises the youngsters in his side.

!

Miller's and Sehwag's dismissals turned the tide again but calm Bailey saw his side through. Earlier in the day, some exceptional bowling from Mohali, led by Sandeep Sharma's 3/15, restricted Bangalore to 124. Only Yuvraj top scored with 35. MOHALI NOW BECOME THE FIRST TEAM TO WIN THEIR FIRST FIVE MATCHES IN A SINGLE SEASON.

!

A nervy win for Mohali. A game in which their batting was tested again but the batsmen made it tough for themselves. Sehwag and Pujara got off to a decent start but then Pujara's wicket led to a collapse before Miller and Sehwag steadied proceedings.
