Dwayne Smith (63 n.o) and Kieron Pollard (31 n.o) led from the front as Mumbai Indians beat Highveld Lions by 7 wickets in their CLT20 encounter on Friday in Jaipur.
Mumbai Indians opting to field first restricted South Africa's Highveld Lions to 140. Chasing the target, Sachin departed early for 5. Dinesh Karthik (13) and Rohit Sharma (20) steadied the Mumbai innings for a while. Then it was left for the West Indies duo who batted quite well to steer the team home.
Mumbai Indians' fans were quick to express their joy on Twitter.
