View dismissal GC Smith st †Takawale b Pollock 5 9 0 0 55.55
2.2 Bizarre dismissal. Silly too. Smith had walked into a drive to a length delivery on the leg stump and missed it completely. He was outside the crease as he had over balanced and just kept walking! The ball went to the 'keeper who fumbled it before picking the ball and breaking the stumps. But Smith was not even looking behind. Did he think he was bowled? or did he think he would have been easily stumped? What a dramatic start. Strange dismissal that. 12/1

14.1 Done in by the slower one. Lovely one from the back of the hand and Swapnil holes out to long-off. Tendulkar is beaming. 95/7
View dismissal YK Pathan b Nehra 1 3 0 0 33.33
3.1 The big-hitting Yusuf falls. The swipe across the line has turned fatal. It landed on a length, on the middle stump and shaped towards the off stump. Yusuf Pathan tried to heave it to the leg side and missed. Gone! 21/2
View dismissal SR Watson b Bravo 32 20 4 1 160.00
8.5 The round-the-wickets angle has worked. It was angling across Watson who went for a slog across the line and dragged it to his stumps. 74/3
View dismissal M Kaif c Nehra b Raje 4 7 0 0 57.14
10.5 Short of length, outside off, Kaif cuts hard but it flies off the outer edge to Nehra at third man. Sachin is happy and is seen applauding from the side lines. Mumbai Indians are doing quite well here tonight. 82/4
View dismissal RA Jadeja c †Takawale b Kulkarni 0 1 0 0 0.00
11.1 Mumbai prise out another wicket. It was a sharp bouncer and a surprised Jadeja fended it off in an ungainly manner- the ball got big on him and his weak pull was not good enough- and the ball looped behind the 'keeper who took a few steps before diving to his front to take a very good catch 82/5
View dismissal SK Warne* c †Takawale b Kulkarni 7 7 1 0 100.00
13.1 The pull goes awry. It was short and on the off stump line, Warne made room for himself and went for his pull but skied it up and it came down for the 'keeper to hold it. Can Jaipur get to 150? 94/6
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir b Nehra 6 6 1 0 100.00
15.1 The stumps are in disarray. It was full, it was straight and Tanvir went across the line but missed it. 102/8
View dismissal M Rawat c †Takawale b Nehra 1 5 0 0 20.00
15.5 Nehra takes him out with a bouncer. A weak jab and it goes off the gloves and Yogesh, the 'keeper, dives forward to take a sharp catch 103/9
View dismissal SK Trivedi b Bravo 1 3 0 0 33.33
16.2 Cleaned up by a lovely slower one. Trivedi had backed away and was baffled by the slower one. He had a waft but no where in line. This is the lowest total by a team batting first. 103/10
