Sydney Sixers vs Mumbai

Sydney Sixers beat Mumbai Indians in the Champions League Twenty20

Mitchell Starc: Two wickets for the unbeaten Sydney Sixers

The Sydney Sixers made it four wins from four matches in Group B of the Champions League Twenty20 with a 12-run victory over the Mumbai Indians in Durban.

The Sixers, who were without Australia all-rounder Shane Watson, struggled to get going on a slow and bouncy Kingsmead pitch after skipper Brad Haddin had won the toss and could only make 136-7 in their 20 overs.

However, that target still proved beyond the defending champions, who limped to 124-8 to ensure they exited the tournament without a victory.

Only three of the top seven Sydney batsmen made it into double figures with opener Michael Lumb hitting a streaky 28 and Nic Maddinson a quickfire 27 before being run out.

Steven Smith top-scored with a run-a-ball 41 and Nathan McCullum slammed a late unbeaten 20, while Munaf Patel, playing his first match of the tournament, was the pick of the bowlers with 2-17.

Dwayne Smith (26) and Sachin Tendulkar (22) got the Indians' reply off to a good start by putting on 52 for the first wicket before Moises Henriques (2-29) dismissed them in quick succession.

Rohit Sharma (16) and Dinesh Karthik (18), who hit the SpiderCam with one shot, kept the ball rolling but Mumbai then crumbled after that pair were both run out.

A steady stream of wickets fell in the face of some testing bowling from Mitchell Starc (2-24) and Pat Cummins (2-16) as the Indians came up short despite Harbhajan Singh's defiant unbeaten 22.
