Akhil Herwadkar (32), one down Siddesh Lad (35) and experienced Suryakumar Yadav (31) got desired starts but were unable to convert them to big scores as Punjab bowlers struck at regular intervals.

They crippled the lower-middle order, but a quick fire 30 from 14 balls by pacer Shardul Thakur ensured that Mumbai went past the 240-run mark.

For Punjab, Manpreet Singh Grewal (2-28), Mayank Markande (2-25) and Mandeep Singh (2-40) were among the wickets.

Mumbai bowlers, who came out all guns blazing, bundled out Punjab for 202, with pacers Dhawal Kulkarni (3-18) and Thakur (3-53) doing the bulk of the damage.

For Punjab, batters Shubman Gill (40), Anmolpreet Singh (35), Mandeep Singh (32) and Yuvraj Singh (26) got starts but faltered at crucial moments in the game.

Wicket-keeper Abhishek Gupta (33 not out) showed some resistance but ran out of partners at the other end and could not take his side home.

This is Mumbais fourth win, having earlier defeated Baroda, Karnataka and Railways. Their game against Vidarbha was washed out due to rains.
