Match drawn (Rest of India won on 1st innings)

  Rest of India 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal S Dhawan b Thakur 63 162 101 11 0 62.37
38.1 bowled'im. Thakur gets the wicket through a wide full ball. Dhawan loses concentration when he could have gone on and scored big runs to present a case for himself. Drives at this without getting close to it, gets the inside edge onto the stumps. Thakur, the last person you would have expected to, provides the breakthrough for Mumbai 144/1
View dismissal M Vijay b Nayar 116 271 206 17 1 56.31
62.6 lovely bowling. That inswinger again. Nayar has done this superbly. This is the second batsman he has set by bowling wide, wide, wide, and then got him with inswinger. Slightly surprising that a man well set presented him such a big gap to sneak through and disturb the stumps. Back foot stuck on leg, playing across the leg 231/3
View dismissal MK Tiwary lbw b Nayar 37 93 67 7 0 55.22
58.6 this is the longest walk back of all time, and indeed the longest stay at the wicket after being given out. If Rohit Sharma and Inzamam were batting together they would have outpaced Tiwary in walking back. And the umpire was perfectly justified in giving him out here. Tiwary has moved way across the stumps, has missed a length ball, is hit in front of off, and is definitely gone. The umpire takes him time, you can call this a delayed decision, but it the right call. Tiwary, who think he has run a leg-bye, stands and stands for almost a minute before walking off slowly. Meanwhile Nayar has got Tiwary again. He has a history of getting him out 222/2
View dismissal AT Rayudu c Jaffer b Sharma 51 100 83 9 0 61.44
83.2 finally Sharma gets the reward, and Rayudu's struggle against spin ends. He has been leaving the crease and has been struggling to get to the pitch of the ball. He has been dropped at slip once, but this time Jaffer makes no mistake. Rayudu goes back to cut, but the ball is not that short, and he gets a sharp edge to slip. Rohit is overjoyed that a catch is finally held 309/4
View dismissal SK Raina c Thakur b Chavan 134 286 169 14 5 79.28
124.4 eight men on the boundary, and Raina has picked out one of them. Looks to hit another six, gets too close to the ball, no room to swing arms, ends up skying one to long-on. Raises his bat as he walks off 512/9
View dismissal WP Saha lbw b Kulkarni 17 22 19 4 0 89.47
88.5 plumb lbw. Too good for Saha. He is caught on the crease as this length ball nips in and hits him right in front. Easy decision, but the umpire takes his time before sending Saha on his way 330/5
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh* c Nayar b Kulkarni 16 26 15 3 0 106.66
94.4 and Bhajji has played a shot too many. This one doesn't give him any room, and he is caught on the crease and looking to play to leg. The leading edge lobs up, looks like it will die short of short cover, but not on Nayar's watch, who moves forward and dives and gets his fingers under it 352/6
View dismissal A Mithun lbw b Chavan 51 141 90 9 1 56.66
122.4 finally a wicket. Comes through a break in concentration and a poor shot from Mithun. Plays across the line of a straight delivery, misses, and is hit on the back foot and in front 505/7
View dismissal PP Ojha c Kulkarni b Dabholkar 0 4 7 0 0 0.00
123.6 and Ojha throws his wicket away. Innocuous length ball outside off, he tries to go over mid-on, but mis-hits straight down the fielder's throat. How he was sent in ahead of Ishwar Pandey is a mystery 506/8

View dismissal W Jaffer c †Rayudu b Sreesanth 80 174 126 11 1 63.49
39.2 A superb innings from Jaffer comes to an end with a soft dismissal. He is looking to leave a length ball outside off alone, but makes the decision late, and gets an edge through to Rayudu. Raina seems to have hurt himself while celebrating 146/2
View dismissal AP Tare c Tiwary b Pandey 6 19 9 1 0 66.66
3.3 Pandey strikes early. Tare is loose for an opener. Length ball, outside off, just about holds its line, take s the thick edge of the irresponsible drive, and Tiwary takes a sharp catch at gully 14/1
View dismissal AM Rahane lbw b Harbhajan Singh 83 287 183 9 1 45.35
64.5 Rahane has been given out. I thought he had hit it. And I am right. Rahane sawn off in a match crucial for selection. It's a dangerous shot all right, sweeping from around off, but he has hit the leather off it onto his pad. Harbhajan and the umpire don't think so 234/4
View dismissal SN Thakur c Tiwary b Pandey 4 27 16 1 0 25.00
44.1 and Thakur is gone first ball. The small crowd at Wankhede cheers because this can mean only one thin. Full, just outside off, pushed hard, edged to gully. He has done his job, though 161/3
SR Tendulkar not out 140 343 197 18 2 71.06
View dismissal RG Sharma c Ojha b Harbhajan Singh 0 21 12 0 0 0.00
70.4 rush of blood to Sharma's head. He has not scored a run for 11 balls, and he plays a bad shot: the slog-sweep with a deep midwicket positioned. Poor poor shot. Credit to Harbhajan too for getting extra bounce on that topspinner, and Ojha holds on to the skier 254/5
View dismissal AM Nayar* c Vijay b Mithun 1 18 12 0 0 8.33
73.4 poor shot from Nayar. Walks across the stumps, whips across the line of a length ball on off, and provides catching practice to first slip 257/6
View dismissal AA Chavan c †Saha b Mithun 49 131 89 8 0 55.05
99.4 Loose shot. Chavan falls one short of fifty. Huge wicket for Rest of India. Just pushes at a widish delivery, the likes he has been leaving alone for a long time. Gets the edge this time. Mumbai still 166 adrift 360/7
View dismissal DS Kulkarni c Vijay b Ojha 10 47 38 1 0 26.31
110.4 Kulkarni runs out of patience, tries the big shot, and holes out. That's another rush of the blood to head that Mumbai could have done without. He has been defending so well for so long, but who knows what got into his head here. Down the wicket, looks to clear mid-off, not close to the pitch of the ball, and skies it to Vijay at mid-off 399/8
View dismissal JJ Khan c Mithun b Harbhajan Singh 8 13 15 2 0 53.33
113.5 floated outside off, Javed swings again, and this is not a half-volley. Expected, and sooner rather than later, he has holed out to mid-off. Irresponsible batting 409/9
View dismissal VV Dabholkar lbw b Ojha 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
114.1 he can't survive even a ball. Tendulkar left unbeaten, but could he have shown urgency to pick a single last ball last over? Doesn't matter. It wouldn't have made much of a difference when it comes to taking first-innings points. Dabholkar pushes forward, misses the line, hit in front, and given. Pretty easy decision for the umpire 409/10

0.6 Nayar has produced a wicket out of thin air. Spectacular catch at short straight midwicket. Nothing great about this short delivery, which Dhawan pulls in front of square. Nayar dives to his right to take the catch. If there is a team that will believe from this situation, it is Mumbai 0/1
View dismissal M Vijay c Sharma b Thakur 35 120 61 5 0 57.37
23.1 and Vijay throws it away. He has not lost all concentration since the Sreesanth run-out, and throws his bat at a wide delivery now. To be fair to Thakur he has been asking questions outside off. Vijay early into the shot and pushes in front of his body, lobbing a simple catch to short cover. His first-class temperament remains in question 67/3
View dismissal S Sreesanth run out (Sharma) 18 87 56 3 0 32.14
17.6 Thakur to Vijay, direct hit, and we are going to the third umpire. This has been a strange over. For some over, Vijay has started to protect Sreesanth after more than an hour into the day. After keeping him down to just one earlier in the over, Vijay now takes a risky single off the last ball. Pushed towards short cover, and he sets off. Rohit Sharma swoops in, and hits the stumps at the striker's end. Sreesanth is short of his ground. If I were Sreesanth, I'd be gutted 60/1

72.2 Tiwary seems to suggest he has got a shocker. Tiwary can't believe it. Given out caught off the forearm, he suggests. He looks to paddle this from leg, the ball bounces a little more than expected, surely came off the forearm, but was there a top edge involved before it hit the forearm? Yes it seems to have hit the top edge on the way. The umpire seems to have got it right, but can't tell for sure 207/4
