This victory has helped the team to keep their dominance in the 10-team tournament. Skipper Sachin Tendulkar is not going to take rest despite his team performing well. He is eyeing IPL consistency for Mumbai Indians.

Sachin Tendulkar should want his team finishing at the top of the table. Last year they became the runners-up team after losing to Chennai Super Kings in the final.

As knock-out format is changing this season, Tendulkar should want his team to be one of the top two teams getting some benefits. According to the new rules, the loser of the first knock out will get advantage to keep their hope alive of playing in the final round.
