Champions League Twenty20 - Group B

Mumbai Indians v Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers won by 12 runs

1.1

Malinga to Lumb, FOUR, Smack. Easy does it. Length ball, on off, and he has lofted inside-out over wide mid-off

1.2

Malinga to Lumb, 2 runs, slower ball, on off, and he has chipped it over mid-off. Slightly mis-hit but it has cleared the fielder

1.3

Malinga to Lumb, no run, short of a length, kicks up from there, beats his attempt to punch at it

1.4

Malinga to Lumb, no run, slower ball, outside off, he doesn't even go after it

1.5

Malinga to Lumb, FOUR, another slower ball, but Lumb has got all of this one, driving it over mid-off. Perera runs backward, gets a hand to it, but can't hold on to t

1.6

Malinga to Lumb, 1 wide, another slower ball, but it's a wide

1.6

Malinga to Lumb, no run, slower ball again, short of a length, just outside off, left alone

Sydney Sixers 18/0   SL Malinga 1-0-11-0

4.1

Malinga to Lumb, no run, starts with a slower ball, 118ks, on middle and leg, pushed back to him

4.2

Malinga to Lumb, 2 runs, I hope Lumb makes a trip to the casino tonight. He charges at Malinga, hoicks at a slower ball, and the edge lobs over backward point

4.3

Malinga to Lumb, no run, full and fast, driven nicely, but finds extra cover

4.4

Malinga to Lumb, OUT, Lumb finally succeeds at what he seems to have been trying to do: find an outfielder with the pull. Slower ball again, and this time he connects with the pull for a change, only to hole out to deep midwicket

MJ Lumb c Smith b Malinga 28 (20m 22b 4x4 0x6) SR: 127.27

4.5

Malinga to Nevill, 1 run, low full toss on the pads, fails to punish it, takes just the single to deep square

4.6

Malinga to Maddinson, SIX, what a start for Madinson. Bouncer from Malinga, he arches back, makes room, and then guides it virtually over the head of the wicketkeeper. And it clears the dugouts

Sydney Sixers 40/1   SL Malinga 2-0-20-1

17.1

Malinga to Smith, FOUR, full, fast and wide, and Smith steers it wide of point. Finally he gets the pace he is looking for. Something tells me we will see only slower balls from now on

17.2

Malinga to Smith, 1 run, slower bouncer, steered away to third man

17.3

Malinga to McCullum, 1 run, slow again, backs away to run it past point for one

17.4

Malinga to Smith, OUT, slower ball again, and he has found the timber here. Smith feels Malinga might finally bowl the quicker ball and moves across to try to scoop it. Malinga stays slow, and arrives after Smith has scooped. Leg stump gone. They check for the no-ball, but Lasith is fine

SPD Smith b Malinga 41 (45m 41b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

17.5

Malinga to Cummins, no run, now arrives the quick ball. Fast bowler to fast bowler, at 145ks. Full, just outside off, beats the edge

17.6

Malinga to Cummins, no run, full, middle and leg, pushed to short midwicket

Sydney Sixers 119/7   SL Malinga 3-0-26-2

19.1

Malinga to Cummins, 1 bye, slower ball again, beats the bat, but they steal a bye

19.2

Malinga to McCullum, 2 runs, short ball, manages enough contact with this to clear the fielders on the leg-side ring

19.3

Malinga to McCullum, no run, seems him back away, slips in the full and wide delivery. Dot

19.4

Malinga to McCullum, 2 runs, slower short ball, pulled to long-on where Perera's misfield allows them the second

19.5

Malinga to McCullum, FOUR, he has managed successfully what Smith failed with. Gets a full fast ball from Malinga, goes down on a knee, and scoops it over the keeper's head

19.6

Malinga to McCullum, 2 runs, slow and short, pulled up high, Harbhajan runs back to try to catch, but it falls over him

Sydney Sixers 136/7   SL Malinga 4-0-36-2
