View dismissal AA Herwadkar c Fazal b Rajpoot 90 197 148 15 0 60.81
41.3 and the change of angle worked..comes round the wicket and bowls that from wide of the crease. It was touch short around the off stump which was coming in with the angle and moves across with good bounce. Herwadkar was caught at the crease as he flirts that by staying in the crease and only manages an outside edge which lands into the safe hands of Fazal at first slip. He tried to steer that initially with an open face but just changes his mind a bit late as he tried to get his bat away from the line and by then the ball already kissed the edge. 209/2
View dismissal JG Bista lbw b Das 104 181 90 15 1 115.55
38.2 and finally a breakthrough, this was nicely bowled by Das..Bista was looking a bit impatient after getting the hundred. It was on a length and jags back in sharply, kept touch low. Bista tries to clip this through the leg side, most likely he was not anticipating that much of inward movement and was playing outside the line for a straighter ball. Hits him infront of leg and middle. 193/1
View dismissal SS Iyer c Bharat b Binny 55 84 49 10 0 112.24
54.1 and they got a big wicket here, Iyer walks back..It was short and way outside off stump which holds the line after pitching. Iyer reaches for it and punches it fiercely, everything was good about that, it's that slice of luck not with him as he was not able to place that in the gap, straight into the hands of backward point where Bharat pouches a good low catch. 272/3
View dismissal SA Yadav c & b Yadav 156 394 271 24 1 57.56
128.5 and a fine innings comes to an end..What a knock this was..This was floated outside off and invites Yadav to drive that on the up. Yadav leans onto it and tries to clear that over the cover region, beaten completely there as he was early onto the shot. The bat swivels in his hands and ball took the lower half which lobs back towards Jayant who pouches it. 512/5
View dismissal AP Tare*† c †Ojha b Das 65 220 151 9 0 43.04
103.5 and finally something to cheer for the ROI players..That was on a good length and quite straightish until it pitches around the off stump and entices Tare to play. Finally he got that away movement and the zone both in right place as Tare pokes at it which catches the outside edge towards the keeper. Ojha was a bit late to react but finally dives full length to his right and holds with one hand.. 434/4
View dismissal SD Lad c †Ojha b Unadkat 66 215 129 8 0 51.16
153.4 and he picks up a wicket finally, comes round the wicket and was on a shortish length. Lad stays on the crease and tries to run that to third man with an open face. This was coming in with the angle and just moving across after pitching around off. It took a faint edge as Ojha accepts it. 572/8
View dismissal AM Nayar c Fazal b Yadav 2 37 21 0 0 9.52
136.4 Jayant picks up another wicket, he comes round the wicket and pushes slowish through air around the off stump, which held the deck touch and then turns away with some extra bounce. Nayar prods forward and tries to dab it down, which catches the feather of his bat and went to first slip. Turn and the extra bounce did the trick here. Fazal stood calm and took it just above the carpet. That's a very good low catch as the on-field umpires checked with tv umpire.. 526/6
View dismissal DS Kulkarni c Fazal b Yadav 0 8 3 0 0 0.00
138.1 another wicket for Jayant, this was flat and he drags that short outside off stump which slides in sharply with good bounce. Kulkarni caught up at the crease as he pushes at it without knowing much. The turn and bounce was good enough to catch the outside edge which went into the safe hands of Fazal at first slip. 526/7
View dismissal Iqbal Abdulla c †Ojha b Unadkat 29 73 68 4 0 42.64
155.5 pushes full and quicker outside off which straightens. Abdulla was enticed for the drive and did so but lack of feet movement there. He plays that away from the body which catches the outside edge and settles down in the safe hands of Ojha. 585/9
View dismissal SN Thakur c Das b Yadav 18 21 14 3 0 128.57
158.2 and that's the end..Yadav gets his fourth wicket..This was tossed up outside off as Thakur clears the front leg and tries to slog that over the long-on region, not enough elevation as it picks Krishna Das near the ropes and Mumbai finishes with a mammoth 603 runs. 603/10

It was pushed slowish through air as Ojha not able to reach the pitch of it but able to hit hard which found the shortish cover.

It was way outside the off stump and going away further with the angle.

Gets it at the feather which lobs off the leading edge to left and across of the non-striker. Abdulla covered a lot of ground and then dives full length to hold a breathtaking catch.. 176/2

23.2 to Bharat, swipe across the line and pays the penalty. It was nicely tossed up on off stump, doesn't spin. Bharat gets down on his knee and tries to play an ugly swipe across the stumps, fails to get bat onto ball and it cannon onto the stumps. Needless shot and a much needed breakthrough for Mumbai. 66/1
61.6 to Chatterjee, what a superb catch that was..Abdulla you beauty! This could be the match winning one too. He pushes that short and sliding in with the angle, Chatterjee once again caught up in two minds..forward/backward..ends up dragging himself back as he tries to close the face. Gets it at the feather which lobs off the leading edge to left and across of the non-striker. Abdulla covered a lot of ground and then dives full length to hold a breathtaking catch.. 176/2
93.5 to Fazal, and Abdulla picks up a big wicket here..Fazal walks back after a great innings..They were bowling either widish or down the leg, this time Abdulla pushes that from round the wicket on a shortish length as Fazal charges down the track. It was way outside the off stump and going away further with the angle. Fazal was not able to reach the pitch of it and ends up edging it back to the keeper as there was enough stretching from him to get that edge. Okay then..Mumbai will be concious after this.. 306/3
101.4 to Nair, and Abdulla strikes again..with the new ball..For the second time in the match Nair is dismissed in the 90s....That was tossed up down the leg side which held the deck and straightens, as he gets down on one knee for a slog sweep. It got big on him as it took the top edge which settles into hands of shortish fine leg. 336/4
123.2 to Binny, what a grab that was, Abdulla picked his fifth wicket..He comes round the wicket and pushes that full and wide of Binny. He took big stride out and tries to reaches out with the hanging bat, gets it at the toe end which lob towards the cover point... lack of elevation. Bista runs back and sideways to take a beautiful catch. 445/6
