In their final Indian Premier League 2013 discussion, John Pennington and Chetan Narula cover a variety of topics as they look back at both Sunday's final, won by Mumbai Indians, and the tournament as a whole.
They also react to the latest news in the spot-fixing controversy and look back on Sachin Tendulkar as an Indian Premier League player after his retirement at the end of the final.
Following Mumbai Indians' 23-run win over Chennai Super Kings in the final, Sachin Tendulkar has confirmed that the Indian Premier League 2013 was his final IPL tournament.
Meanwhile, former Mumbai captain Tendulkar's latest successor Rohit Sharma has been fined $20,000 for his side maintaining a slow-over rate during the final.
One of the final Indian Premier League 2013 Cricket World TV updates as John Pennington issues his bulletin moments after Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs to win the final.
Kieron Pollard smashed 60 in 32 balls to rescue Mumbai from a horror start, when they lurched to 16 for three but Chennai's start was even worse, losing three wickets in two overs and although Mahendra Singh Dhoni made 67 not out with five huge sixes, there was no way back.
In our latest Indian Premier League 2013 cricket TV video we look back at the final qualifier match between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in Kolkata.
Mumbai Indians progressed to the final, where they will meet Chennai Super Kings but despite Dwayne Smith hitting another half-century, they only made it thanks to Harbhajan Singh hitting the penultimate delivery for six.
Kings XI Punjab finished their Indian Premier League 2013 campaign with a huge 50-run win over Mumbai Indians at Dharmasala.
It doesn't make much difference though, for they were already ousted from the top-four race, ending the season with 16 points in sixth spot.
Mumbai Indians recorded their eighth successive win at home as they fought off a spirited Rajasthan Royals fightback to claim a 14-run win at the Wankhede Stadium.
Chasing 167 to win, Rajasthan slipped to 28 for four and 88 for six but it took the return of Lasith Malinga to finally see off Rajasthan, who closed on 152 for seven.
Kieron Pollard thumped eight sixes in a 20-ball half-century that lifted Mumbai Indians to the top of the Indian Premier League 2013 standings courtesy of a seven-wicket victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Pollard finished unbeaten on 66 in 27 balls and his boundary-filled innings saw Mumbai overhaul a stiff target of 179 with three balls to spare.
John Pennington and Chetan Narula discuss the latest stages of the Indian Premier League 2013 - IPL 2013 - IPL 6 with the tournament rapidly coming towards its conclusion and teams battling it out for a play-off place.
Mumbai Indians consolidated their second place in the Indian Premier League 2013 points-table, registering a comfortable five-wicket win over Pune Warriors in the local derby.
Mumbai have 18 points from 13 matches, with nine wins, and are just above Rajasthan Royals on the basis of run-rate.
Mumbai Indians kept up the pressure on Indian Premier League 2013 leaders Chennai Super Kings with a convincing 65-run win over reigning champions Kolkata Knight Riders.
Runs for Sachin Tendulkar, Dwayne Smith and Dinesh Karthik guided Mumbai to 170 for six before Harbhajan Singh took three for 27 to dismiss Kolkata for 105.
Four weeks into the 2013 Indian Premier League and the knock-outs' picture is beginning to take shape. If you compare it with 2012, it isn't a close run thing.
At this stage last season, there were seven teams vying for four spots. A year later, things have evolved a little bit more, with only five teams in the fray now and a sixth with an outside chance.
Mumbai Indians finally ended Chennai Super Kings' winning streak, defeating them by a handsome margin of 60 runs at the Wankhede stadium. This means they will earn a high run-rate from this win along with two points, surging to third in the table with 14 points. Chennai stay at the top despite losing their third game in 12 matches, with 18 points from nine wins.
Shikhar Dhawan drove Sunrisers Hyderabad to a fourth consecutive Indian Premier League 2013 home win as they saw off Mumbai Indians by seven wickets with two overs to spare.
Dhawan was unbeaten on 73 in 55 balls as Sunrisers eased past Mumbai's score of 129 for seven to lift themselves up to 12 points - only behind today's opponents on net run-rate.
Rohit Sharma was at his fluent best as Mumbai Indians continued their Indian Premier League 2013 revival by recording a four-run win over Kings XI Punjab.
After Kings XI were bowled out for 170 in pursuit of 175 to win, it meant they followed up a brace of wins with a brace of defeats, a trend they will seek to reverse as soon as possible.
Mumbai Indians roared back into Indian Premier League 2013 contention with a second successive win, this time at home, when they beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by a comfortable margin of 58 runs at the Wankhede Stadium.
This win took Mumbai into the top four, with 10 points from eight games, pushing Sunrisers Hyderabad down to fifth (also with 10 points after their loss earlier in the day). Bangalore remain top with 12 points from nine games, but their run-rate took a beating.
Ideally this headline should read as 'Royal Challengers Bangalore Lay Down The Marker', having taken an early lead in the Indian Premier League 2013. Despite Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals pushing towards the top, Virat Kohli's side has stayed at the top consistently. Chetan Narula rounds up the latest IPL 2013 action as we approach the halfway stage.
Mumbai Indians revived their flagging Indian Premier League 2013 fortunes with a last-over five-wicket win over reigning champions Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens.
After Dwayne Smith had thumped 62, it was left to Ambati Rayudu to hit the penultimate ball for four to hand Kolkata a third consecutive defeat, and one that leaves their chances of retaining the title hanging by a thread.
Delhi Daredevils broke their six-match losing streak in the 2013 IPL when they beat Mumbai Indians by nine wickets at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The hosts finally broke their duck and put two points on the tally, yet still languish in last spot and will need a lot of repeat performances if they are to have even a slim hope of making the knock-outs. Mumbai meanwhile suffered a second straight loss and failed to climb up from their fifth spot in the table, with six points from as many games.
After a clutch of close finishes over the last few days in the Indian Premier League 2013, Rajasthan Royals handed Mumbai Indians an 87-run thrashing in game 23 in Jaipur.
After Ajinkya Rahane's half-century helped them pile up 179 for three, Rajasthan dismissed Mumbai's star-studded batting line-up for just 92.
In their latest series of Indian Premier League 2013 podcasts, John Pennington and Chetan Narula discuss a number of topics, ranging from Delhi Daredevils' struggles to the form of Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
Two weekends in the 2013 Indian Premier League have come and gone, almost as a wind. The cricket on show has been enticing, at times a little slow and at other times the supposed entertainment took over.
The one assured aspect that came out on top though, and will continue to do so, is the ebb and flow of different teams as fortunes will change daily. Chetan Narula runs the rule over the start of the 2013 tournament.
Mumbai Indians rose to the top of the Indian Premier League 2013 table with a commanding 41-run win over Pune Warriors at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
It was a local derby of sorts for the two teams from neighbouring cities and Mumbai came out on top as Pune suffered their third defeat in four matches.
Cricket World TV looks back at the opening week of the Indian Premier League 2013 - IPL 2013 - IPL 6 in India, which at the time of recording saw four times level on two points at the top of the table.
Mumbai Indians racked up the first score in excess of 200 in the Indian Premier League 2013 on their way to a 44-run thrashing of Delhi Daredevils at the Wankhede Stadium.
Dinesh Karthik continued his fine run of form with a half-century and Rohit Sharma followed suit as Mumbai piled up 209 for five and then held Delhi to 165 for nine in reply.
