View dismissal R Sathish c Anirudha b Morkel 0 7 0 0 0.00
2.1 Sathish was picked to play out the first over and perish in the second. Unfortunate dismissal there, he really got a piece of that short ball from Morkel but smashed the pull straight to midwicket inside the circle. Sathish was advancing as Morkel bowled it and pulled it off the front foot, and hence got it in front of square. 9/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar* c Hussey b Bollinger 5 8 1 0 62.50
3.4 Bollinger silences Wankhede. Valthaty keeps the orange cap for now. Tendulkar is gone. Chennai on top. Really good bouncer from Bollinger, dug it in back of a length and got it to climb rapidly on Tendulkar even as it angled across. Tendulkar moved the back foot across to off stump and went for the hook, but he was late on the shot. He gets a feeble top edge that balloons up towards the cordon. Dhoni runs back and gets ready to take it, but Hussey jumped in front of him and took it. 13/2
View dismissal AT Rayudu st †Dhoni b Randiv 27 29 4 0 93.10
11.1 Rayudu has run right past a straighter one from Randiv. He announced his intent early and gave the charge, Randiv landed the floater short of a length and got it to hold its line. Rayudu was not to the pitch and did not pick the variation as he shovelled to the leg side. Swing and a miss, Dhoni does the rest. 74/3

19.2 No 100 to be had, but this has been a top innings nevertheless. Bollinger rolls the fingers over this one and keeps it short of a length outside off. Rohit looks to go back in the crease and heave this over the on side, but it never comes on. He mishits it straight to long on. 161/4

View dismissal MEK Hussey c Pollard b Malinga 41 33 6 0 124.24
11.2 Hussey goes. Malinga strikes. Pollard scoops one inches above the turf. It was one of those slow bouncers from Malinga, and it gripped and sat up at Hussey, who was almost on one knee as he tried to swat the pull. He then took his eyes off it, surprised by the lack of pace and the extra bounce. He ended up playing it a little uppishly and could not get it to land before Pollard could get his hands under it, swooping forward at midwicket. 98/3
View dismissal M Vijay c Sharma b Patel 12 9 1 1 133.33
3.4 out of nowhere, Munaf has produced a gem. Vijay has been sent packing by a stunning legcutter. It looked like another friendly delivery angling in. Seemed to be doing something, but seamed to do something else. Munaf jagged that away off the seam, Vijay was caught amidships after getting half across and not forward. He was squared up and the outside edge went clean into Rohit's lap at first slip. 31/1
View dismissal SK Raina c & b Harbhajan Singh 5 4 1 0 125.00
4.5 he's done him. Harbhajan's lured Raina out of the crease with a seemingly looping, tossed up offering on off, but he had imparted vicious drift on that. Lovely delivery, it dipped on Raina as he charged out and landed at least a foot short of where he expected. Having not reached the pitch, Raina tamely scooped it back at Harbhajan, who held a sharp catch. 38/2
S Badrinath not out 71 48 7 2 147.91
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Sharma b Pollard 3 6 0 0 50.00
12.2 catch of the tournament. This could be the ball that wins it for Mumbai. Pollard keeps producing wickets with his seemingly innocuous balls. This was was heading down the leg side, and Dhoni was eyeing the square leg fence as he went for a flick. He was however a little early on the shot and ended up getting a bizarre leading edge that balooned away to third man. Rohit moved rapidly to his left, dived full-length forward and plucked it. He was smiling like an eager little boy as he came up with it. 101/4
View dismissal S Anirudha c Sathish b Harbhajan Singh 9 9 0 1 100.00
15.6 Anirudha holes out, this game continues to swing. Full toss on the stumps, Anirudha swipes it straight to deep midwicket. That deserved to go for six, but he did not connect as cleanly as he would have wanted. 123/5
View dismissal JA Morkel b Harbhajan Singh 3 4 0 0 75.00
17.2 Bhajji has nailed Morkel, and surely Mumbai have sealed it now. Harbhajan was looking to get it as flat and fast and straight as he could. It's a smart strategy in these end overs. Morkel went down on a knee and looked to dump him over cow corner. He swing hard, but the ball slipped through too quickly for him and clattered into off stump. Harbhajan's bowled superbly today. 136/6
View dismissal R Ashwin c Pollard b Harbhajan Singh 0 2 0 0 0.00
17.4 Harbhajan has four. Chennai are crumbling here. Lovely topspinner, bravely landed up and Ashwin took up the challenge, jumping out and looking to smite it over long on. He did not get a very good connection though, and looped it into Pollard's hands at long-on. 136/7
View dismissal Joginder Sharma c & b Harbhajan Singh 0 1 0 0 0.00
17.6 Harbhajan has five! Who said he can't get wickets? He has bowled like a champ today. Another one tossed up, inviting the loft, and Joginder's heave went no where. Top edge spirals up to the off side of the pitch, Harbhajan and Rayudu converge, Harbhajan calls and takes it. 137/8
View dismissal S Randiv c Sathish b Malinga 2 4 0 0 50.00
18.5 another one bites the dust. Randiv gives Sathish catching practice at point. Short and fast on off stump, no room, no nothing. Randiv guides it straight to his hands. Mumbai on the brink. 140/9
