Nokia Champions League T20, Group A: Mumbai Indians v New South Wales at Chennai, Oct 2, 2011
New South Wales won by 5 wickets (with 18 balls remaining)
2 October 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Clark to Blizzard, OUT, the slowness strikes, 79mph, short of a length, just outside off, Blizzard wants to steer it, but is early into it, and drags it onto the stumps

AC Blizzard b Clark 1 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Mumbai Indians 2/1   S Kanwar 1* (1b)   SR Clark 0.5-0-2-1

Starc to Kanwar, OUT, what do you want on a hot Sunday afternoon if you are a bowler? Gentle for a full toss will do just fine. Kanwar has found point to perfection with this drive

S Kanwar c O'Keefe b Starc 5 (9m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Mumbai Indians 9/2   AT Rayudu 2* (4b)   MA Starc 1-0-6-1

Clark to Rayudu, OUT, Mumbai are disintegrating here. Clark gets his second. A wicket an over so far. This is shortish outside off, Rayudu plays a forceful shot, but all he manages is a thick edge towards Watson's face. Watson usually doesn't drop those. Not when self defence is involved too

AT Rayudu c Watson b Clark 2 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Mumbai Indians 9/3   JEC Franklin 0* (0b)   SR Clark 1.1-0-3-2

Cummins to Pollard, OUT, Pollard goes. Big heave-ho. He wanted to send this to Pondicherry. Instead Pollard can himself go there now. Straight length ball, he stays deep in the crease and slogs across it. The stumps are splayed. Perhaps that's why captains don't want him to bat too many overs? Mikey Holding will approve

KA Pollard b Cummins 8 (13m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Mumbai Indians 27/4   JEC Franklin 10* (7b 2x4)   PJ Cummins 0.5-0-2-1

O'Keefe to Symonds, OUT, doesn't matter, O'Keefe doesn't need the umpire for this. Symonds gives him the wild charge, O'Keefe fires this in, beats him in the flight, hits the top of off

A Symonds b O'Keefe 9 (26m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.94

Mumbai Indians 50/5   JEC Franklin 24* (30b 4x4)   SNJ O'Keefe 1.3-0-11-1

O'Keefe to Sathish, OUT, The slowness again. Can't just hit through the line. Sathish tries once again, and only manages to find long-on. Still, a busy hand from him nonetheless

R Sathish c SPD Smith b O'Keefe 14 (13m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Mumbai Indians 70/6   JEC Franklin 29* (39b 4x4)   SNJ O'Keefe 3.4-0-17-2

Cummins to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, short ball, doesn't come up at all, Bhajan bottom edges it not far from the stumps, Harbhajan tries the single, although he knows he is not going to make it. He gives up half way through, and Cummins hits the stumps direct. At least he has brought Franklin back on strike. Don't know if it is that wise a thing to do to keep Malinga off strike? I mean this is a strange tournament

Harbhajan Singh run out 15 (16m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

Mumbai Indians 98/7   JEC Franklin 40* (50b 5x4)   PJ Cummins 3.5-1-11-1
