Sydney Sixers maintained their perfect start to the Champions League Twenty20 tournament as they eased to a 12-run victory over Mumbai Indians in Durban.

Sydney had already qualified for the semi-finals after winning their opening three group matches and had the luxury of resting Dominic Thornely and Shane Watson.

Michael Lumb scored heavily during the opening overs but could not build on a good start and was caught off the bowling of Lasith Malinga for 28.

Nic Maddinson then smashed 27 off just 13 deliveries before he was run out off and it was left to Steven Smith (41) who scored at a run-a-ball to push Sydney's score forward but after Malinga struck again the Sixers were always going to struggle.

Captain Brad Haddin and Moises Henriques were both out for second-ball ducks as Mumbai restricted the group winners to 136 for seven.

Mumbai openers Dwayne Smith (26) and Sachin Tendulkar (22) started well but both fell to the bowling of Henriques in the ninth over.

It was downhill from that point on for Mumbai with only Dinesh Karthik (18) reaching double figures until Harbhajan Singh cracked 22 from just nine balls.

Harbhajan remained at the crease but could not guide Mumbai to their required total in their final outing of this year's competition.
