Champions League Twenty20 - 11th match, Group A

Lions v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 7 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)

Almost start time in Jaipur. Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen are at the crease for the Lions.

Roger S: "Phew, spare a thought for Glenn Maxwell...I know he's being handsomely compensated, but this guy just will not get a single game. A million dollars for him to warm the bench!" Roger, I think asking me to sympathise with someone who gets paid $1 million to do nothing is testing the limits of my compassion.

Does Imran Tahir have the most thorough CV of any present cricketer? Check out the number of professional sides he has been a part of. Twenty-six by my count - 27 including Highveldt. Wonder what his references are like.

Ravi has done the maths for us: "If MI loses today, they are out of tournament. Then max points they can accrue is 6, which is less than what Royals have currently. With today's victory Lions would move to 6 pts. Lions have to play Volts. So one of thme (Lions or Volts) will move to 8 (if their match is washed out) or 10. If Lions lose today, they are not completely out."

Chaky: "Rohin sharma said that they know the conditions better than Lions. Obviously they know the conditions better, they have played 3 matches on same ground in 2013 and lost all of them."

Mumbai Indians have won the toss and elected to bowl first. Rohit Sharma says Mumbai will look to take advantage of what are expected to be helpful conditions for seamers. They are unchanged.

Alviro Petersen thinks this pitch looks like the one at The Wanderers stadium in Johannesburg. Neil McKenzie has overcome his injury and is back, as is Sohail Tanvir Imran Tahir.

We're waiting now for toss and teams info. Wasim Akram says the grass on the Jaipur pitch means there should be some good bounce and carry for the quicks, but also thinks there could be runs to made, once the shine has worn off. Hedge your bets, why don't you, Waz.

7:15 pmWelcome to ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the group A clash between Highveldt Lions and Mumbai Indians in Jaipur. The teams are in an identically desperate situation in the tournament, having both lost to Rajasthan Royals and then shared points in a washout. All this means the team that loses today could be knocked out of the competition. So I'm told anyway. Being averse to even basic arithmetic, I can't calculate tournament permutations without having to have a good lie-down afterwards.

0.1

Johnson to van der Dussen, no run, yorker length ball about a foot outside off stump, batsman tries to jam the bat down on it but misses

0.2

Johnson to van der Dussen, no run, good length ball outside off stump, van der Dussen has a poke at it and misses. Great carry to the keeper

0.3

Johnson to van der Dussen, no run, good length again, tighter into the stumps, defended to mid-off

0.4

Johnson to van der Dussen, no run, short of a length and wide, at 148 kph. Batsman tries to slap it away through the off side, but misses. This pitch has got a bit of spice alright

0.5

Johnson to van der Dussen, no run, short of a length, but on the legs, knocked down into the leg side

0.6

Johnson to van der Dussen, 5 wides, five wides, but what bounce! It went around chest height past the batsman on the leg side, and it only bounced once more before it reached the boundary. Smart money was never on Johnson completing a maiden though, you've got to say.

Looks like the floodlights are back on, and we're set to go again. A 22-minute delay there.

Rahul Malhotra: "The Joke is on You ..Its Karthik and not Parthiv" Alas, Rahul is correct. Slip of the fingers.

Mr. Lemon: "The TV channel showing the game here in oz doesn't have much faith in the lights coming back on. They've just put on an episode of M.A.S.H."

Few comments in about the bounce in this pitch resembling that of Perth. Watching the replay of that last ball, and it's a seriously rare occurence for a ball to bounce just once without being hit. Trampolined right off the surface and way over Dinesh Karthik (no short jokes please).

Players now seem to be going off the field, so we may be in for a bit of a break. Did the prospect of Mitchell Johnson bowling a maiden first-up cause some sort of rift in the timespace continuum that has manifested itself in an electrical fault? Low blow, I know, but who can resist?

Greg: "Was Maxwell maybe a tactical signing by Mumbai? To make sure no other team got him even though they weren't going to play him?" Wrestling with IPL reason is a fruitless endeavour, my friend.

ankit: "I am keen to know Bowling speed to Mitchell in his 1st spell. Has he already gone 150+" Didn't see him hit 150, but he got mighty close.

8:03 There is a technical fault with one of the light towers now, and there's a break in play.

0.6

Johnson to van der Dussen, no run, length ball on the stumps, jagging slightly back in. Defended back to the bowler. Solid over that.

End of over 1 (5 runs) Lions 5/0 (RR: 5.00)

2.5

Johnson to van der Dussen, no run, full, outside off stump again, mishit into the leg side

Ahaan Malhotra: "I have totally no idea why Nathan Counter-Nile was given just 1-2 games in IPL? And, he played so well in them."

4.1

Johnson to van der Dussen, FOUR, batsmen are really getting into their stride now, angled across and van der Hussen frees his arms to punch that on the ground through cover again

4.2

Johnson to van der Dussen, OUT, but, he throws it away next ball. Short of a length on the hips, van der Dussen is late on the pull, which he wasn't in a great position to play anyway, and he mistimes it straight to square leg, who backpedals a couple of metres and accepts the straightforward chance

HE van der Dussen c Dhawan b Johnson 13 (20m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 86.66

4.3

Johnson to McKenzie, 1 run, length on middle stump, bunted into the leg side and the batsmen scamper through

4.5

Johnson to de Kock, 1 wide, fullish, down leg side

imran: "Is Waz a genius or what. Pitch behaving exactly how he predicted and seems like gloss is of the ball after only 2 overs runs are coming fast and thick."

6.3

Harbhajan Singh to de Kock, no run, pitches outside off and straightens, defended into the off side

6.4

Harbhajan Singh to de Kock, OUT, doosra I think and that looked very good. De Kock didn't read the variation, and tried to turn what he thought would be an off break into the leg side. Harbhajan pitches just outside off stump and turns it in to strike the pad. Probably would have hit leg stump, on first look.

Q de Kock lbw b Harbhajan Singh 19 (33m 22b 4x4 0x6) SR: 86.36

9.1

Dhawan to McKenzie, 1 leg bye, fullish and on the stumps, worked to leg off the pads

9.2

9.3

Dhawan to McKenzie, SIX, crack! Picks it up from outside off stump and launches that over long-on for the first six, not much of a backlift, just great timing

9.4

Dhawan to McKenzie, no run, tries to repeat the shot, but the ball is fuller and closer into the stumps and he misses

9.5

Dhawan to McKenzie, no run, short and wide, jagging slightly away. McKenzie tries to cut it, but it passes over the blade

9.6

Dhawan to McKenzie, OUT, fine ball that. He's been moving it off the seam both ways throughout, and he uproots the offstump with an inducker that passes in between bat and pad to uproot off stump. Well earned reward for a very decent spell

ND McKenzie b Dhawan 15 (27m 14b 1x4 1x6) SR: 107.14

End of over 10 (9 runs) Lions 62/3 (RR: 6.20)

10.1

Harbhajan Singh to Symes, no run, length, turning slightly into the left-hander, defended

10.2

Harbhajan Singh to Symes, no run, another doosra, but this is pitched on middle and hits the pad. Harbhajan appeals, but that's going down leg. Batsmen go through

10.4

Harbhajan Singh to Petersen, no run, length on about off stump, defended into the off stump

11.1

Ojha to Symes, no run, length ball on middle, Symes tries to slog that over cow corner, but misses and it hits him on his chest

11.2

Ojha to Symes, SIX, gets contact this time, and to fine effect. This is fuller and hit high with the turn, over the midwicket fence

11.3

Ojha to Symes, OUT, Synes tries it again, but Ojha is wise to it now. Pushes this one through faster and Symes has his leg side uprooted. Looks ugly when that doesn't come off.

J Symes b Ojha 14 (20m 16b 0x4 1x6) SR: 87.50

11.4

Ojha to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run, full on leg stump, a leading edge takes it along the ground into a gap in the off side.

12.1

Harbhajan Singh to Petersen, no run, Slider that Petersen tries to tickle fine. It goes past his bat

12.2

Harbhajan Singh to Petersen, 1 run, Bhaji saw Petersen making room and followed him. Fullish delivery on the legs that is worked into the leg side

12.3

Harbhajan Singh to Sohail Tanvir, no run, length ball, defended

12.4

Harbhajan Singh to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run, slightly straighter, and Tanvir gets that down the ground

12.5

Harbhajan Singh to Petersen, FOUR, makes room and laces that skilfully through the off side for four. That's what he was trying to do earlier in the over, but he didn't telegraph it to the bowler this time

12.6

Harbhajan Singh to Petersen, 1 leg bye, tries to make room again, but Bhaji is on to it this time. Strikes him on the pad and the batsmen take one

13.6

End of over 14 (3 runs) Lions 83/5 (RR: 5.92)
D Pretorius    1* (3b)      PP Ojha    2-0-11-2
AN Petersen    9* (9b 1x4)      Harbhajan Singh    4-0-19-1

Coulter-Nile is back

14.1

14.6

Coulter-Nile to Petersen, no run, Petersen runs down the pitch again and drives the length ball on the stumps. Straight to extra cover though

15.5

15.6

Ojha to Petersen, SIX, now Petersen goes big. Doesn't strike it as well as he likes but he gets it far enough - over long off. Ruins Ojha's figures at the same time
