View dismissal SR Watson* c Pollard b Harbhajan Singh 8 22 18 1 0 44.44
5.3 this is slower and it's a little more tossed up. Watson came down the track and skewed the loft. Pollard raced in and dived forward to take a good, low catch. Explodes in a Guitar Hero-like celebration. Wankhede breaks the sound barrier 34/1
View dismissal SV Samson c Harbhajan Singh b Gopal 74 68 47 7 3 157.44
15.3 he's sliced it and the outside edge lands safely in the hands of a backtracking Bhajji at point. That's a useful double-strike and are Mumbai back in this? Lovely flight from Gopal that time 136/3
View dismissal KK Nair c Simmons b Bumrah 50 42 27 7 2 185.18
14.6 and almost predictably it has to end with a soft dismissal. Took a while to register considering Mumai weren't too keep on celebrating. The bowler was only concerned to see if it carried and then turned away with a bowed head. It was short and Nair goes for the pull. But he's mistimed it this time and Simmons at short midwicket picks up a good, low chance. 134/2
BJ Hodge not out 29 24 16 2 1 181.25
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Anderson b Pollard 23 20 12 0 3 191.66
19.5 this was a slower bouncer, he had to drag it from outside off and that means he doesn't get enough power to beat deep midwicket. Easy catch, but the umpires are asking him to stay back. They want to check the height on this, remember Pollard had bowled a bouncer earlier. This would be a no-ball if it is over shoulder-height. It looks very tight, but the third umpire says it's okay 185/4

View dismissal LMP Simmons c Faulkner b Kulkarni 12 8 8 3 0 150.00
1.5 first strike for Royals, Simmons makes room and slogs a length delivery, it is another slower one, and Faulkner takes a simple catch at mid on 19/1
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Cooper 22 23 11 1 2 200.00
4.2 goes full, goes straight and it's timber! Cooper punches his chest and then the air after he deceived Huss who was looking to hack it through the leg side but the shot across the line doesn't succeed 53/2
CJ Anderson not out 95 79 44 9 6 215.90
View dismissal KA Pollard c Hodge b Cooper 7 3 3 0 1 233.33
4.6 he's broken Mumbai! This was another slower ball and Pollard after having walked down the pitch, his flick ends up looping it to square leg. Hit too high on the bat as he was closing the face. Hodge runs in and picks up the simplest catch. 61/3
View dismissal RG Sharma* c Nair b Kulkarni 16 23 11 1 1 145.45
9.2 he's holed out! Rohit had to go for it and it was almost in the slot. Looks to swing as hard as he can, but ends up getting a thick outside edge that sits into the hands of the sweeper 108/4
View dismissal AT Rayudu run out (Nair/†Samson) 30 32 10 5 1 300.00
14.3 from Faulkner, it's a ridiculous comedy of error. Rayudu is on his knees on the floor! This was back of a length but a little too quick for him as he went for a cut. Gets struck high on the bat and goes only as far as short cover. They set off for the single and the fielder runs in and underarms a throw to try and get him out but misses. They go for the second and the throw from midwicket finds Rayudu short 189/5
