Result: Mumbai Won

Favourite Team: Mumbai 60p

Note:  We have closed down the Voting/Polling 18 overs before the schedule,  Rajasthan 8/2 in 2 overs (56% Punters at PunterPoll was supporting Mumbai). But later on when we Re-opned after 10 over when RR were 78/2, Punters started supporting Royals and the resutl are in front of you.

PunterPolls: This was an interesting match. Mumbai had scored huge 197 with the help of blistering inning by Pollard 64 on 33 balls with 6 ffours and 4 sixes. Rayudu  47 on 32 balls also played well.

Dravid mus be disappointed with his decision to field first after winning the toss and lossing couple of earlier wickets while chasing a mamooth target of 198. But Rajasthan had done pretty well where we other teams in this season are facing difficulties chasing 130+. Full credit goes to Ovesh Shah and Rahane. One stage when these two were batting, Royals were having fair chances to win the match.

Then Malinga comes in and strikes on very first ball and Mumbai was back into the game.

At the end, this was quite a good game.

Match 3: Mumbai Vs Pune, 6 April


Favourite Team: Mumbai with 65p

Result: Pune won

PunterPolls: What a match that was. MI won the toss and chosen to field first. Mumbai bowler restricted the Pune warriors to 126 and by the Puner innings everyone was so sure about the Mumbai Indians easy win over the Warriors though Sachin tendulkar wasn't playing the match.

But as MII have done the last season, they repeated the same over here. Afte loosing couple of wickets in the earlier overs they went into their shell and never come back.

Result: Mumbai Won

Favourite Team: Mumbai 96p on BetFair.

PunterPolls: An ordinary performance by defending IPL champions Chennai Super Kings. Only Suresh Raina seems be threating for Mumbai Indians, apart from him not a single batsman had stood up to the occasion.

Mumbai Indians

To reach final: 2.56
Winner: 5.30

So close, yet so far. That's been the story of Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) till now. Finalists in the third season, third-placed finish in the fourth (after losing the second play-off to RCB), the franchise - that seems to be the most balanced sides in the tournament - hasn't been able to lay its hands on the coveted trophy as yet. 
From practice facilities to coaching and support staff, hotels, pre-tournament hype, sponsorships deals - the works -- Mumbai Indians players have access to some of the best talent and amenities. Only a trophy in the cupboard is missing. 
The franchise has quietly gone about adding meat to the line-up. So, Tendulkar will have young Ambati Rayudu coming in at No. 3, followed by Rohit Sharma, West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard (when he arrives), South Africa's Twenty20 sensation Richard Levi and wicket-keeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik.

QF: Banglore v Mumbai, 27th May


Status: Closed
Result: Banglore Won
Who were favorites as on 1st ball bowled?: Mumbai with 69p on BetFair.

PunterPolls: Again unexpected turnaround match, Banglore turned the match in very first over to his favor. Mumbai Indians who is being favorites when the first ball bowled turned to be another side at the end of the very first over of the match.

Banglore scored 27 runs in the very first over and Betfair was showing 70p Banglore favorites. Once again Galye power did the damage.

According to me Tendulkar did the biggest mistake by choosing field after winning the toss. Chennai pitch helps spinners and its been difficult to chase the score of 145. Anyhow, overall Mumbai didn't deserve to be in the final and it had happened at the end.
