Mumbai Indians 0/0   JA Morkel 1-1-0-0

2.1

Morkel to Sathish, OUT, 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.

2.5

Morkel to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu has tried to fish off the back foot, to waft off the front foot, and now he tries to make room as he backs away. And he still can't get bat on these outswingers.

4.1

Morkel to Rayudu, 1 run, fullish ball, Rayudu gets the feet forward and and pushed wide of mid-on for a single.

4.2

Morkel to Sharma, no run, another away seamer, just short of a length and going away, Rohit lets it go.

4.3

Morkel to Sharma, FOUR, that's Morkel's first poor ball today, and Rohit cashes in once again. Full and slanted into the pads, Rohit calmly gets inside the line and flicks through midwicket.

4.4

Morkel to Sharma, no run, Bollinger wasn't moving the ball, but Morkel sure is. Hence what was cover-driven for four last over is an ugly play and miss this time. Rohit gets across and gropes unsuccessfully. The ball is already in Dhoni's gloves.

4.5

Morkel to Sharma, 1 run, legcutter, Morkel gets this to kick up from a length and Rohit does well to drop it to point and take off. Raina can't cut off the single.

4.6

Morkel to Rayudu, FOUR, for a moment there, Newton was wondering if he should rework the law of gravity. Full and moving away again, Rayudu danced out and threw everything he had at it. He gets a thick outside edge and the ball flies at great pace wide of Hussey at slip. Hussey sees, takes off up and to the right, hangs in mid-air for a moment, thinks about it, puts his right hand behind even as the blur of a cricket ball flies past, and tries to grasp it, but this ball went past in a flash.

Mumbai Indians 31/2   JA Morkel 3-1-11-1

6.1

Morkel to Rayudu, FOUR, Mumbai finally get a move on. Horrible ball this, slanting a mile down the leg side and Rayudu deserves credit for actually making contact with it as it slid down the leg side and good pace. Pulled with one hand through fine leg.

6.2

Morkel to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu charges out to Morkel who keeps it back of a length outside off. Play and a miss.

6.3

Morkel to Rayudu, 1 run, interesting tactics from Rayudu, initially moves his front foot outside leg, before bringing the back foot to off stump and flicks towards square leg.

6.4

Morkel to Sharma, 2 runs, over-pitched on the pads, Rohit is getting some gifts today. This one he flicks uppishly past a sluggish Bollinger at mid-on and they get a couple

6.5

Morkel to Sharma, 1 run, back of a length, and again it ends on the pads. Rohit nudges to the leg side for a single.

6.6

Morkel to Rayudu, no run, Rayudu again moves all around the crease and then looks to heave a short ball to the leg side. No contact made. He's trying too hard today.
