Moeen Ali speaks
Moeen Ali - We played well, assessed the conditions early and played to our strengths. With the batsmen (and the depth) we have, it's important to keep going, it was important to keep partnerships building. He (Rayudu) played an amazing knock, that situation was a bit tricky for us, but then he played superbly, and has been an important member of the team. They (MI) have some special players, we need to be humble and bowl as a unit.

Moeen Ali on CSK contest
Moeen Ali: (On his success) I think the mindset going in to bat, the freedom I've been allowed to play with in this team... we have such a long batting as well you can just keep going. And it's more natural to me with the way I play and stuff and I am really enjoying it. When the captain and the coaches back you, it's always nice. (On CSK's 5-match winning streak) I think the process that we go about with our cricket. We trust it. Even in the first game we were in trouble at the start but we got around 190 in the end. We just took a lot of confidence from that loss and we just trust in the process and we have been doing well without thinking too much about it. (On CSK not making many changes to their XI) I think that is why CSK and even MI to a certain extent have been the most successful teams. Even MI stick to their players as well. I think it makes a big difference - one for the confidence of players, but also knowing that you got the backing of the captain and the coaches... the players know that they will get a fair run. MI are a fantastic team and they have won many times and they are the champions and we obviously want to beat them and keep the (winning) run going.
May 01, 2021 07:19 PM IST
Ravindra Jadeja speaks ahead of contest
Ravindra Jadeja: T20 is more about momentum. Even small contributions from individuals matter a lot. This year, the batsmen are performing collectively. Feels good to perform for the team. Middle overs will be crucial. If we can restrict them in the middle overs, we won't go for too many in the end. They (Mumbai) are a very good team, we need to focus more and show more energy on the field. Against Mumbai, you can't take anything for granted. They are strong in every department. We have to play our A-game.

Hardik Pandya reveals MI's huge gesture
Hardik Pandya, MI: Whenever I get an opportunity (when asked when one can see the original Hardik with the bat). It's a matter of time, I believe that the process is more important than the outcome. In sports, we do have ups and downs. Success and failures will not change my process, for me, every day is a new day, no matter if I score 0 or 100, it's a fresh start every time, I believe in the process and will wait for my opportunity. It's just the kind of support we have as a team (Mumbai Indians), we have always come out and done the right things on the field. It has always been a collective effort and people have stood up at the right time. We all understand the difficulty that our country is undergoing at this period of time. Gratitude to all the medical staff, frontline workers and all the individuals who have come out and held their hands at such times to fight out the battle. Krunal, myself and my mother - basically our entire family, we were finding ways at trying to help out. We decided to donate 200 oxygen concentrators to the rural parts of India where I feel the medical infrastructure needs more support. We all understand it's difficult, we want to show our gratitude, support and just want to tell everyone that they're always there in our prayers.

Tim Southee makes his pick
“Yeah, it's again a great battle. I think CSK played some great cricket throughout the summer so far but I think – like Scotty again, not joint agreement Scotty – they might go in on a wicket that should suit them more than what Chennai wicket did. So I think they'll start to find their own in the next few games. And as we know Mumbai, they are a quality side – pushed strong through the middle and back into this tournament. So, I am picking Mumbai," Tim Southee on the MI vs CSK contest.

MI vs CSK, IPL 2021 Live: Scott Styris on the match
“The power rankings, which you mentioned, I still have Mumbai at number one. So, I'm sticking to that, I think Mumbai, will go in as favourites. However, the performances CSK has given, they could win this as well. I think this is a bit of a test for CSK, because I think you still need to judge yourself against Mumbai juggernaut. You can't judge Mumbai and what they've done so far – this Chennai, it was a dreadful cricket pitch. They're out of there. Now, they're getting back onto a surface that they are more comfortable with. I think we'll see their players flourish and show their skills. I'd love to CSK win it, because I think that really does make them title contenders - they're already title contenders, but this will really solidify that. Other than that, Mumbai is still the favourite in this competition.” Scott Styris said on Star Sports

What Rohit Sharma said before the contest
Here is what MI captain Rohit Sharma had to say before the match against Chennai Super Kings:
"Playing the conditions well is important, we didn't adapt well in Chennai, but we knew once that leg ended, we were going to play on good pitches. These conditions [in Delhi] allowed our batters to come out and play the game they knew well. We have had a lot of discussions, we play in a certain manner and we want to adapt to that. It allows them to be fearless, a few guys can anchor the innings and play around the hitters." - Rohit Sharma
