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

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

38.1

Thakur to Dhawan, OUT, 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

S Dhawan b Thakur 63 (162m 101b 11x4 0x6) SR: 62.37

Rest of India 144/1   M Vijay 76* (131b 13x4)   SN Thakur 3.1-1-25-1

Nayar to Tiwary, OUT, 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

MK Tiwary lbw b Nayar 37 (93m 67b 7x4 0x6) SR: 55.22

Rest of India 222/2   M Vijay 112* (191b 17x4 1x6)   AM Nayar 12-4-38-1

62.6

Nayar to Vijay, OUT, 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

M Vijay b Nayar 116 (271m 206b 17x4 1x6) SR: 56.31

Rest of India 231/3   AT Rayudu 5* (9b 1x4)   AM Nayar 14-6-38-2

83.2

Sharma to Rayudu, OUT, 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

AT Rayudu c Jaffer b Sharma 51 (100m 83b 9x4 0x6) SR: 61.44

Rest of India 309/4   SK Raina 32* (48b 4x4 1x6)   RG Sharma 3.2-2-6-1

88.5

Kulkarni to Saha, OUT, 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

WP Saha lbw b Kulkarni 17 (22m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 89.47

Rest of India 330/5   SK Raina 36* (62b 4x4 1x6)   DS Kulkarni 16.5-3-64-1

94.4

Kulkarni to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, 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

Harbhajan Singh c Nayar b Kulkarni 16 (26m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 106.66

Rest of India 352/6   SK Raina 38* (82b 4x4 1x6)   DS Kulkarni 19.4-4-79-2

122.4

Chavan to Mithun, OUT, 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

A Mithun lbw b Chavan 51 (141m 90b 9x4 1x6) SR: 56.66

Rest of India 505/7   SK Raina 127* (164b 14x4 4x6)   AA Chavan 6.4-0-49-1

123.6

Dabholkar to Ojha, OUT, 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

PP Ojha c Kulkarni b Dabholkar 0 (4m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Rest of India 506/8   SK Raina 128* (165b 14x4 4x6)   VV Dabholkar 23-2-106-1

124.4

Chavan to Raina, OUT, 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

SK Raina c Thakur b Chavan 134 (286m 169b 14x4 5x6) SR: 79.28

Rest of India 512/9   S Sreesanth 0* (0b)   AA Chavan 7.4-0-55-2

130.1

Chavan to Pandey, OUT, Pandey is gone. ROI are all out for 526. tries another slog from outside off, gets more height than distance, and Rahane runs in from long-on to complete the catch

IC Pandey c Rahane b Chavan 13 (16m 14b 1x4 1x6) SR: 92.85

Rest of India 526/10   S Sreesanth 1* (19b)   AA Chavan 10.1-0-56-3
