Big hits by skipper Harbhajan Singh (20 not out) and Kieron Pollard (21 not out) helped Mumbai Indians get to a fighting total.
Mumbai Indians made a poor start as Vinay Kumar struck twice in the second over to remove James Franklin (1) and Rohit Sharma to reduce the hosts to 2-2. From then on it was a struggle for Mumbai Indians to keep the scoreboard ticking.
