Tendulkar and Rayudu added 110 runs for the second wicket as Mumbai chased down the 141-run target in 18.3 overs.
Tendulkar hit 7 fours in his 46-ball 55 and Rayudu's 50-ball 63 was studded with 9 fours.
Sachin Tendulkar is the Man of the Match. Tendulkar brings along Rayudu to collect the award.

Jacobs hit 2 sixes and 2 fours before falling to Nannes.
Earlier, Lasith Malinga and Kieron Pollard took two wickets each as Mumbai Indians restricted Royal Challengers Bangalore to 140/4 despite Tillakartne Dilshan's unbeaten 59.
Dilshan hit 2 sixes and 4 fours in his 52-ball knock.
Dilshan and AB de Villiers added 91 runs for the third wicket but could not really get after the Mumbai bowlers due to their tight line and length.
de Villiers hit a six and 3 fours in his 36-ball 38 before he hit a Pollard delivery high up in the air for the tall West Indian all-rounder to complete the catch to put RCB at 110/3 in 16.5 overs.
In the next over, Malinga clean bowled Asad Pathan to reduce the hosts to 112/4.
RCB got off to a poor start as Malinga clean bowled Mayank Agarwal on the first ball of the match with a beauty of a delivery.
Mumbai Indians' wicket-keeper Davy Jacobs took a good high catch to dismiss Virat Kohli off Pollard to reduce RCB to 19/2 in 4.3 overs.
The breakthroughs came after Mumbai Indians captain Sachin Tendulkar won the toss and chose to bowl.
Both the teams are unchanged from the last match.
After winning the toss, Tendulkar said that the dew factor is the one reason why they are bowling first. Bangalore captain Daniel Vettori said that they would have batted any ways as he expected that the wicket will remain true through out the match and the outfield will also remain the same.
Mumbai Indians, only one of two teams to retain the full complement of four players allowed by the IPL rules, will, after the rolling over of the Delhi Daredevils on Sunday evening, be pleased as punch that three among them delivered in game one itself, with the fourth one's services barely needed.
Royal Challengers Bangalore 140 for 4 (Dilshan 59*, Pollard 2-25, Malinga 2-32)
Mumbai Indians 143 for 1 (Rayudu 63, Tendulkar 56*)
Result : Mumbai Indians won by 9 wickets
Points: Mumbai Indians 2, Royal Challengers Bangalore 0
