Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings

Mumbai Indians won by 8 runs

1.1

Bollinger to Tendulkar, no run, back of a length on off stump, Tendulkar gets behind the line and defends to the off side

1.2

Bollinger to Tendulkar, no run, Bollinger again angles one across, full and outside off, Tendulkar shuffles behind the line and defends.

1.3

Bollinger to Tendulkar, 5 wides, Bollinger has let this fly. There seems to be more carry from the end. He dug this in short alright, but it absolutely took off and went several feet above Tendulkar. Dhoni did not have a chance.

1.3

Bollinger to Tendulkar, no run, width on offer, Tendulkar gets into perfect position for the flowing square drive, but picks out Raina at short cover-point. He is just in front of square there.

1.4

Bollinger to Tendulkar, FOUR, smashed. Bollinger gives Tendulkar width once too often, and it is only a matter of time before one of them is thumped through the covers. Tendulkar stays on the back foot and drills it through the line, beating all the fielders inside the circle.

1.5

Bollinger to Tendulkar, no run, smart delivery, Bollinger rolls the fingers over this and sends down an offcutter, Tendulkar is fooled as he prances out of the crease and it nips away from him.

1.6

Bollinger to Tendulkar, no run, finishes off with a full and straight ball and Tendulkar can't get much bat on the flick shot.

Mumbai Indians 9/0   DE Bollinger 1-0-9-0

3.1

Bollinger to Rayudu, 1 run, Bolly aims for Rayudu's pads with an incoming delivery and Rayudu nudges it with the deviation towards fine leg

3.2

Bollinger to Tendulkar, 1 run, Tendulkar has not got forward to a single ball today. Again stays deep in crease to tackle the late movement and pushes a full ball straight to Vijay running in from mid-off. Tough single, but he makes it.

3.3

Bollinger to Rayudu, 1 run, back of a length and looks to cramp Rayudu for room outside off, but Rayudu rides the bounce and dabs it past the slip.

3.4

Bollinger to Tendulkar, OUT, 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.

SR Tendulkar c Hussey b Bollinger 5 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

3.5

Bollinger to Sharma, FOUR, sublime shot. Full and wide outside off, and for once today a Mumbai batsman moves his feet Rohit gets the front foot across with authority and creams it through point.

3.6

Bollinger to Sharma, FOUR, the previous shot was textbook, this one was imperious. Bollinger did not over-pitch this one, though it was still there for the drive. It was a gamble, since slip was waiting. Rohit got across and scythed the drive backward of point. The wrists came into play and it was just too elegant to watch.

Mumbai Indians 21/2   DE Bollinger 2-0-20-1

17.1

Bollinger to Sharma, no run, short ball, not short enough to pull and Rohit is hit in the tummy as he swings and misses. Ouch.

17.2

Bollinger to Sharma, 1 run, another short ball, Rohit looks to pull again and edges onto the pad for a single to the leg side

17.3

Bollinger to Symonds, no run, smart ball, Bollinger cramps Symonds outside off and doesn't give him length either as he motors out of the crease. He ends up looking to carve through the off side, but misses

17.4

Bollinger to Symonds, 1 run, another hustling short ball, Symonds looks to make room and swat it, and ends up mis-timing a single down the ground.

17.5

Bollinger to Sharma, no run, clever, clever stuff. Bollinger sees Rohit wandering to the leg side this time and pushes the ball full and wide outside off, Rohit could not reach it.

17.6

Bollinger to Sharma, SIX, Rohit ruins the over with a superb shot. Bollinger was looking for the yorker, but the ball slipped out and ended a full toss at waist height. Rohit was shuffling across already and the kept his wits about him to play the lap shot, all the way over Dhoni's head.

Mumbai Indians 143/3   DE Bollinger 3-0-28-1

19.1

Bollinger to Symonds, 1 leg bye, short ball, hurries onto Symonds who pulls and gets hit in the midsection now. He winces as he runs across, and Rohit is at the other end in no time. He wants a 100.

19.2

Bollinger to Sharma, OUT, 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.

RG Sharma c Hussey b Bollinger 87 (48b 8x4 5x6) SR: 181.25

19.3

Bollinger to Symonds, 1 run, short of a length outside off, Symonds under edges to Dhoni and they hare across.

19.4

Bollinger to Pollard, no run, escapes with a near wide, Pollard stands back in the crease and backs away, Bollinger keeps it full and wide of off stump. Pollard can't reach it.

19.5

Bollinger to Pollard, 1 bye, lovely bowling. 123 kph offcutter, Pollard did not pick it at all as he looked to pull. They run a bye as Dhoni can't collect cleanly. Dhoni picks it up eventually and fires a really poor throw, and might have twisted his ankle in the process.

19.6

Bollinger to Symonds, 1 wide, monster bouncer that. 137 kph on a length and it shoots away. Might have hit a patch of grass or something, it went well over the batsman's head.

19.6

Bollinger to Symonds, no run, Dougie has finished off with two nerveless overs, despite that slippery full toss that went for a six. He gets the last one to squeeze under Symmo's bat outside off as he looks to chop it away. They think of a single, but Dhoni collects and prances up to the stumps to deny them the run.

Mumbai Indians 164/4   DE Bollinger 4-0-30-2
