Don't know what's going on: Yuvraj Singh

Pune lost by 21 runs to Mumbai Indians and remain at the bottom of the points table.

The only bright spots for Yuvraj from the game was that he removed in-form Mumbai skipper Sachin Tendulkar and the impressive performance of leg-spinner Rahul Sharma, who finished with 2/7 off his 4 overs.

"I got Sachin out. That was great but unfortunately lost the game. I really don't know what's happening. I think we bowled decent enough. May be 10 runs extra but 160 was gettable," Yuvraj said after the match.

"We played too many dot balls. You need power hitters in the end to finish the game. Unfortunately we got too bogged down. We have nothing to lose now; so I am sure we will cut somebody (some team) out," Yuvraj added.

Mumbai have regained their position at the top of the points table, but for skipper Tendulkar the job is far from complete.

"Ya, knocking at the door but the door hasn't opened yet. We would love to get in," he said when asked about their almost certain place in the play-offs.

Tendulkar said there was still space for improvement in his side and also lauded Rahul, who was adjudged man of the match for his brilliant bowling.

"We could always do better. I thought Rahul Sharma bowled brilliantly. He has bowled a few good spells and this was one of them. Suman and Pollard batted well. If we go too hard, we can get out for 95 also. We have to decide based on the track," he said.

Tendulkar was satisfied that his move to promote Suman up the order, yielded desired result.

Suman played a blazing 16-ball 36 to lead the team's recovery following an unimpressive start.
