Champions League Twenty20, Group B: Mumbai Indians v Sydney Sixers at Durban, Oct 22, 2012
Sydney Sixers won by 12 runs
Played at Kingsmead, Durban (neutral venue)
22 October 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)

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

Sydney Sixers 33/1   PM Nevill 4* (6b)   SL Malinga 1.4-0-13-1

Patel to Nevill, OUT, Sixers have nominated the pull as their favourite poison. Nevill tries one to a delivery nearly not full enough, and lobs it down mid-on's throat

PM Nevill c Perera b Patel 5 (23m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Sydney Sixers 40/2   NJ Maddinson 6* (1b 1x6)   MM Patel 2.1-0-11-1

Patel to Haddin, OUT, Patel is on fire here. Digs it in short again, provides Haddin with the room. I don't know if it is extra bounce or spongy bounce at work, but all Haddin manages with the cut is catching practice to cover-point. Hold on for a second. They are checking if the front foot has landed fine. Yes it has. Only by inches, but it has

BJ Haddin c Rayudu b Patel 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sydney Sixers 40/3   NJ Maddinson 6* (1b 1x6)   MM Patel 2.3-0-11-2

Ojha to Smith, OUT, arm ball again, Maddinson calls him through for a tight single to point. The direct hit seems to have caught him short, but nobody is appealing. Belatedly, somebody appeals. Belatedly, Aleem Dar asks for the third umpire. And he is run out. That's against the run of play

NJ Maddinson run out 27 (23m 13b 2x4 2x6) SR: 207.69

Sydney Sixers 76/4   SPD Smith 12* (20b)   PP Ojha 2.5-0-25-0

Harbhajan Singh to Henriques, OUT, and Dar has given him. That was an offbreak and could have been turning down leg. Pitched just outside off, turning past the bat even as he is playing forward. On second look, this hasn't turned that much, and Dar has judged the extent of turn to perfection

MC Henriques lbw b Harbhajan Singh 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sydney Sixers 77/5   SPD Smith 13* (21b)   Harbhajan Singh 2.2-0-11-1

Perera to O'Keefe, OUT, that;s a bouncer like he meant it. Gets it to rise throat high as opposed to the earlier waist-high effort. O'Keefe throws his bat at it, manages a top edge to fine leg where Munaf makes no mistake. I don't see Munaf making a single mistake

SNJ O'Keefe c Patel b Perera 6 (11m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

Sydney Sixers 98/6   SPD Smith 28* (30b 2x4)   NLTC Perera 2-0-15-1

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

Sydney Sixers 119/7   NL McCullum 8* (5b)   SL Malinga 2.4-0-26-2
