Indian Premier League - 25th match

Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings

Mumbai Indians won by 8 runs

5.1

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, 1 wide, full and swinging away from Jogi as well, but he's started this well outside off. Rohit leaves. Jogi is coming off a fruitful Ranji season.

5.1

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, no run, back of a length and just outside off, Rohit undercuts past the off stump.

5.2

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, 1 run, try getting a ball past Raina. Full from Jogi, Rohit leans into an blistering square drive and Raina at short point dives to his left and parries it.

5.3

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, no run, good delivery, nips away a touch from outside off and Rayudu feels for it from the crease

5.4

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu is not at his best, so far. He's struggling to force the ball away off a slightly two-paced pitch. Short of a length from Jogi, he goes hard at it and mistimes to the leg side

5.5

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, 1 run, this time he steers a single from off stump line, through third man for a single

5.6

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, SIX, boy, he's played some real shots today. Joginder lands one short of driving length and angles it into Rohit. What does he do? He gets the front foot half forward, and slap-slams it over long-on for a big six. All timing.

Mumbai Indians 40/2   Joginder Sharma 1-0-9-0

7.1

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, 1 run, full and a foot wide of off stump, this time Rohit gives Jogi more respect. Guided down to third man.

7.2

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, FOUR, Fifty up for Mumbai. Rayudu pulls away that innovative lap flick. He shuffles all the way across the stumps and is standing in Shiv Chanderpaul style by the time the ball comes. It is angling into the pads and he slaps it away to the left of fine leg.

7.3

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, 1 wide, Rayudu again leaps across with the back foot and then plays a baseball shot, but it is too short and wide.

7.3

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu is going for a walk around his crease every ball. This time he is a foot outside the crease, with the feet planted on middle and off as Jogi bends one in a touch.

7.4

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, no run, full and straight on off, Rayudu defends sedately towards mid-off

7.5

Joginder Sharma to Rayudu, 1 run, slow and short, Rayudu waits until eternity and is still so early in the pull, he drags it to long on. He wanted only one, but Rohit hared half way back for the second. He got back in time though.

7.6

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, 1 run, full toss on middle, Rohit politely punches to long-on for a single.

Mumbai Indians 56/2   Joginder Sharma 2-0-17-0

15.1

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, FOUR, is cannon fodder. Polite length ball outside off, Rohit gets to the line and murders it through the covers.

15.2

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, 1 run, angles into the pads, Rohit works him with the angle through square leg for a single

15.3

Joginder Sharma to Symonds, SIX, Symonds sends him into downtown Mumbai. Hapless length stuff from Joginder, on the stumps and despite Symonds' reluctance to get forward, this is in the slot. He pile-drives it just over the head of long-on.

15.4

Joginder Sharma to Symonds, 1 run, this time he lands it well outside off in the mid-120s. Symonds has a huge swipe at it and gets it down to third man

15.5

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, FOUR, intelligent batting this from Rohit. The field is set back on the off side, and inside the circle on the leg side. Rohit picks his spot and walks across the stumps. Jogi's pace is such a dawdle, it sits up on middle and Rohit pulls it over Morkel at square leg. He runs back and puts it a slide, but the ball wins.

15.6

Joginder Sharma to Sharma, 1 run, better line, Rohit works him off the pads to midwicket where the fielder slips. There is a lot of dew out there.

Mumbai Indians 124/3   Joginder Sharma 3-0-34-0
