24 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Steyn to Tendulkar, FOUR, and right away, Sachin walks across and two steps outside the crease, takes a length ball from just outside off and whips it in front of square leg, it flies off the middle of the bat


Steyn to Tendulkar, no run, shot! waits for a fuller one to move away from a fuller length, and pings extra cover with a perfect front foot drive


Steyn to Tendulkar, FOUR, another boundary, but past the keeper and to the fine leg boundary, Sachin saw this one dropped back of a length and went for the forcing cut, got a bottom edge that easily beat the keeper


Steyn to Tendulkar, 1 run, the ball is flying off Sachin's bat, talk about using the bowler;s pace, shuffles and tucks a short of a length ball to fine leg


Steyn to Jacobs, no run, Steyn gets it right for the first time this over, good length outside off and screaming away after pitching, Davy wisely leaves it alone


Steyn to Jacobs, no run, 144.7 kph, a bit further up compared to the previous one and Davy goes hard at it, but under edges it in to the ground on the off side

Mumbai Indians 15/0   DW Steyn 1-0-9-0

Steyn to Sharma, no run, 144.5 kph fuller on outside off, he pushes it back to Steyn who fires in the throw back, just past the batsman


Steyn to Sharma, 1 run, chopped down to third man for a single


Steyn to Symonds, 1 run, pins him on the back foot with a length ball that bounces a bit, he guides it to backward point;s left who dives and parries the ball towards gully who throws at the non-striker;s but misses


Steyn to Sharma, no run, the short ball takes off, but it is quite outside off and he can leave comfortably


Steyn to Sharma, 1 run, comes forward and creams a fuller one, but there is a man at sweeper cover


Steyn to Symonds, 1 run, clipped off middle and leg towards midwicket, Ishant runs in from long on and keeps them to a single

Mumbai Indians 78/4   DW Steyn 2-0-13-0

Steyn to Symonds, no run, makes room outside leg and swings a fuller one straight back, too straight as it crashes in to rohit's stumps


Steyn to Symonds, 2 runs, gets this one through point but it picked up close to the boundary by the man running across


Steyn to Symonds, 1 run, consistently targettting the deep point boundary is Symonds, backs away again and tries to muscle a low full toss, gets it away to third man


Steyn to Sharma, FOUR, smart work, Rohit shuffles across to a slower one, gets outside off and helps it over short fine leg, ends up on a leg himself


Steyn to Sharma, 1 run, squeezed away from outside off and the ball flies to third man


Steyn to Symonds, 2 runs, gets two this time, another one squeezed away wide of third man and Symonds comes hustling back for two

Mumbai Indians 124/4   DW Steyn 3-0-23-0

Steyn to Symonds, FOUR, hammered! Symonds stands in the crease and muscles a short of a length ball over extra cover, gets front leg out of the way and tonks it to the boundary


Steyn to Symonds, SIX, he is not done, now he makes more room outside leg, Steyn follows him with a pacy length ball, but Symonds adjusts to hammer it over the straight boundary even as long on desperately runs across but can do nothing


Steyn to Symonds, 2 runs, this time he splits sweeper cover and third man with the back-away-and-hammer technique of his, gets another couple as he screams back with monster strides


Steyn to Symonds, FOUR, Steyn is being taken apart, again Symonds gets outside leg, this one is just short of a length, enough room for Symonds to punch it past extra cover, more timing than muscle power on this one, the result is the same


Steyn to Symonds, no run, can't get this one away for once, Steyn sprays it wide outside off stump, Symonds stretches out but can't get to it from outside leg


Steyn to Symonds, no run, good comeback from Steyn, fires in the yorker close to off, Symonds tries to squeeze it away but ends up playing inside the line

Mumbai Indians 148/4   DW Steyn 4-0-39-0
