"We had them (reeling) at 40 for 4. We should have won the game from there, but we didn't pick up wickets," said Yuvraj at the post-match presser after MI won by five wickets with three balls to spare at the Wankhede Stadium here.

Yuvraj, who made 57 off 44 balls –- only his second half century this season, complimented rival skipper Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu for the manner in which they guided MI from
the rut and took them close to the winning target of 153.

"I think Rohit and Rayudu played very well. The wicket was gripping a bit at the start but because dew came in, the ball was coming on nicely to the bat," he cited.

If there was no rain and they had got a bit of turn, might be the result could have been different. But to be fair to MI, they had played well under pressure from 40-4. Rohit and Rayudu had taken it to the end, added Yuvraj.

Yuvraj stated he got some time to get his eye in after his side lost early wickets, but rued it all went to waste as the Daredevils lost their sixth game out of ten and have only a very slim chance of going into the play-offs.

 "T20 is a small format and is tough for batsmen batting at 4-5. You have to go and start hitting from the first ball. On Tuesday I got some time as we lost some wickets and I could bat till the end," said Yuvraj, whose previous highest of 54 was scored against his old team Kings XI Punjab at Pune.
