Mumbai needed 26 to win in the last over but managed only 15 as Anand dismissed West Indies all-rounder Pollard (24 off 13 balls) with his fourth delivery.


Tendulkar`s Mumbai were under pressure after being reduced to 25-3 in the opening 5.3 overs, with paceman Ishant Sharma taking two wickets.

Rajan, playing his first IPL match, then got two wickets in one over, including that of Tendulkar who top-scored with 37.

Mumbai paceman Dhawal Kulkarni grabbed three wickets to restrict Deccan, with Shikhar Dhawan (27 not out), skipper Kumar Sangakkara (27) and Sunny Sohal being the main scorers.
