Indian Premier League - 4th match

Delhi Daredevils v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 8 wickets (with 19 balls remaining)

3.55 pm It a sober day for IPL uniforms. After the technicolour-fest that was Bangalore vs Kochi, Delhi and Mumbai have relatively normal blues.

Tendulkar and the Mumbai side stride out. Davy Jacobs will be their keeper, and not Rayudu. Warner on strike, Harbhajan to bowl.

Oh well, scratch that old bit about the jerseys. Delhi's bright blue was their practice outfit, their match outfit is a navy blue and red combo with plenty of diagonal stripes.

3.45pm Do Delhi have the most explosive top three in the tournament? Sehwag, Warner and Finch. It will be superb to see how they fare against Lasith Malinga.

3.30pm The Kotla track has generally not been the best for big Twenty20 shots, today also the pitch is expected to be a slow track.

Toss Sachin calls 'heads', it is 'tails' and Delhi will bat. Delhi's foreign players are Aaron Finch, David Warner, Morne Morkel and Roelof van der Merwe.

Andrew Symonds is out with a niggle. Still don't have the Mumbai XI. Will provide it shortly.

Irfan Pathan, who fetched an astronomical sum at the IPL auction, will be playing his first professional match in a year. Big game for him.

Mumbai's foreign players are Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Davy Jacobs and James Franklin.

3.25pm Hello and welcome to the fourth match of the fourth season of the IPL. Delhi is usually unbearably hot at this time of the year, but some rain in the morning has made it a reasonably pleasant afternoon at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

We are five minutes away from the toss, can you guess the XIs? Try your luck here.

It may be a Delhi crowd, but they are chanting the name of the opposition captain. "Sachin, Sachin" is the familiar cry.

14.3

Murtaza to Pathan, OUT, is he gone for a golden duck? Pathan guides the ball towards short cover and sets off for a single, there was no run in it and he has to turn back, fielder fires in the throw to the keeper, who breaks the stumps, a gazillion replays required to take the decision, I think he is out, and after much deliberation, the giant screen says 'Out', not a great comeback for Irfan

15.3

15.4

Malinga to Morkel, OUT, oh dear, Morkel's got a new bat but that isn't enough to keep another Maling toe-crusher out, another yorker, another bowled, the richest man in India is quite happy with that, Mukesh Ambani jumps out of his seat to applaud Malinga's fourth

16.1

Harbhajan Singh to van der Merwe, 1 run, driven down to long-on for a single

Sachin Singh: "Kochi wants to win it for Sreesanth and Jadeja...Deccan for Sangarkkara as a consolation for world cup lose..Punjab for Gilchrist in his last IPL..Pune for Grame smith to end his choking blues..KKR want to lose it for Dada..Rajastan for botox...bangalore for Deepika and Sid mallya..CSK for Rajnikanth"

AB Dinda    0* (3b)      Harbhajan Singh    3-0-14-2

17.2

Malinga to van der Merwe, 1 run, a slower full toss outside off, mistimed towards extra cover for a single

17.3

Malinga to Dinda, no run, just short of being a yorker, Dinda defends it back to the bowler, three balls left in the over, can Delhi survive?

17.4

Malinga to Dinda, OUT, no they can't, Malinga gets a five-for, 5-13, third-best figures in IPL history, it's not bowled this time, it's short of a length, slower one, Dinda is much too early into the shot and the gently lobs to mid-off, and Delhi have folded for 95

AB Dinda c Franklin b Malinga 0 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Alex: "@Rajesh, Sachin may still be playing during the next world cup, but knowing the icc, they will probably introduce a rule that disallows former cup winning nations to compete - that would make about the same amount of sense as not letting Ireland play"

Kamal: "Its cruel.. Malinga shouldn't be allowed to bowl against tail-enders."

Anant Shah: "Bodyline brought in the bouncer limit. Now I think because of Malinga there should be a yorker limit!" I wouldn't put it beyond the organisers, batsmen are a pampered lot these days.

Harish: "And RCB should win it for their Chief Minister, as he would give them a plot of land free." Oh well, perhaps he has learnt from his World Cup freebie fiasco.

Satya: "Of all the teams how are we forgetting KKR? they need to atleast qualify in the semifinal for SRK !!!"

Gareth wants KKR to win for no one but himself: "Kolkata want to win it for me. I have a few quid on them taking out the tournament..."

Pinak: "Sad, no one wants to win it for their owners!" Sad?

Rohit: "RR to win it for Dravid. @Sachin Graeme Smith was part of IPL winning RR in season 1."

Donbadimaa: "the ipl is not meant to be won for one particular player its meant to be won for that city!!!" Hmm.

Meelyan: "I wonder how much is malinga worth if irfan pathan is worth $1.9m....."

Jatin Mahani: "Can we not fast forward this match to the next one ? Yes im a daredevils fan." Is this an Indian fan saying he doesn't want to see Sachin bat? The horror.

Like cricket? And online social gaming? Head here then.

Harry sounds more like the typical Indian fan: "Thanks to Malinga no Sachin century today! Man!!!"

Sriram Iyer: "With so much talk about Winning, has anyone thought about WINNING it for the man himself? Charlie Sheen. Winning."
