Mumbai Indians produced a solid team effort to beat IPL leaders Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs at the Wankhede Stadium.

Dwayne Smith (50), Sachin Tendulkar (23), Dinesh Karthik (43) and Kieron Pollard (34) led the way as the Indians piled up 194-7 after opting to bat.

RCB finished well short on 136-7 in reply, Indians seamer Dhawal Kulkarni claiming 3-19 and two wickets each for Harbhajan Singh (2-21) and Smith (2-20).

Eighth-wicket pair Ravi Rampaul (23no) and Vinay Kumar (26no) saw out the final six overs after RCB slumped to 85-7 to at least protect their net run-rate to an extent.

The result leaves Mumbai as one of three teams on 10 points, two behind Chennai Super Kings and RCB.
