Indian Premier League - 25th match

Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings

Mumbai Indians won by 8 runs

8.1

Ashwin to Sharma, 1 run, tossed up outside off, worked with the turn down the ground for one.

8.2

Ashwin to Rayudu, no run

8.3

Ashwin to Rayudu, 1 run, big turn from outside off, but it is slow and Rayudu guides to third man for a single

8.4

Ashwin to Sharma, no run, this could be trouble. Rayudu might be run out. Another misunderstanding between these two. This time Rayudu wants the run but Rohit doesn't. Full on off, Rohit lunges out and pads it to the off side, Dhoni is off in a flash and throws to Ashwin on the bounce, as Rayudu dives in. The dive might have saved him. That, and the fact that it wasn't the most powerful throw.

8.5

Ashwin to Sharma, no run, floater on off stump, Rohit reaches across and defends

8.6

Ashwin to Sharma, 1 run, straighter one outside off, Rohit times the back foot push through extra cover well and they think of two, but the running is iffy again. They settle for a single.

Mumbai Indians 59/2   R Ashwin 1-0-3-0

10.1

Ashwin to Rayudu, no run, keeps it short of a length on off stump, Rayudu comes out and then defends.

Mumbai Indians 74/2   R Ashwin 2-0-10-0

12.1

Ashwin to Symonds, no run, turn from outside off, Symmo is playing the spin from the pitch, he isn't picking it. Played with bat and pad close to each other back down the track

Ashwin to Symonds, SIX, oh boy, this is brutal. He's tonked a full ball well outside off over long on with a swiped drive. The timing was immense.

16.4

Ashwin to Symonds, 1 run, again Symonds looks to cart him straight, but can't get much behind this one. On the bounce to long on.
