Jayasuriya's bowling saved Mumbai

Sanath Jayasuriya's 3 for 14, the best figures of the tournament, the Mumbai Indians put their off-field troubles aside and pulled off their first win. On a slow Eden Gardens pitch, though not the minefield of the previous game, Mumbai had a nervy start and were 25 for 3 before Dwayne Bravo and Robin Uthappa put on a century stand to see them home.
Good to see a figures like that and Bowler winning a match for his team. Jayasuriya was one of the over-rated players according to me, in the IPL auctioning system. His batting has not clicked so far in the tournament. In the absence of Sachin, he was supposed to be the king pin of batting. Hopefully this bowling performance will pep him up and we will see old Jayasuriya. Although I think Mumbai won't reach the knockout round. - post by landmine
