Blizzard will take strike, with Kanwar at the other end. Steyn to kick things off for the Cobras. Two slips

The umpires are making their way out now in gladiatorial fashion. Someone's rattling off the fancy intros for the Mumbai team and sure enough, the Cobras will follow.

Nitin Sundar's our man at the ground and he says it's barely 50% full. Not very good for a match involving an IPL team, that too on a Friday night.

Do check out Nitin Sundar's preview to this match.

In other news: A Mumbai Indians player who was ruled out of the tournament on injury grounds, is playing a under-22 tournament in Mumbai and scored 191. Here's more. He was unbeaten on 182 at the end of that day, and was dismissed for 191.

There was a slight drizzle in Bangalore some 15 minutes ago. Covers were on, but are coming off now.

Toss: Cobras win the toss and decide to bowl. They are unchanged. Harbhajan would have wanted to chase as well. Sarul Kanwar has been picked in place of T Suman by the Mumbai Indians. Kanwar will open the batting.

Hello and welcome to the Champions League Twenty20 game between Mumbai Indians and Cape Cobras. Not much of a crowd to start with in Bangalore. Kepler Wessels calls the Bangalore pitch the best one in this tournament. There is a slight grass over on it. If Mumbai win this, they are through to the semis. Should the Cobras win, they stand an excellent chance of going through. We'll get you the toss details in a bit.

Langeveldt to Harbhajan Singh, no run, nicely done, slower one bowled full outside off and Harbhajan doesn't connect again, another dot ball, Harbhajan wants the bye, is sent back and just made it back, appeal for a run-out but he's just in

The rain has picked up

19.6

Langeveldt to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, full outside off, crakced hard to deep cover for a single, Mumbai have finished with 176

We may have a delay for the start of the second innings. The rain might just juice the track up a little and the Mumbai Indians seamers won't mind that at all. They have a good score to defend. Kolkata chased down 169 with no hassles yesterday, but let's see how this pans out. Excellent knock by Pollard and a very good start for Kanwar in his opening game for this team. Join us in a bit. We'll keep you updated about the weather. The covers are on for now, and I saw a couple of umbrellas out in the Mumbai dug out. Siddarth Ravindran's bulletin will be updated in a short while.
