Sharma to Pollard, no run, supah! lovely quickish skidding leg break ala Afridi. Pollard is late on the cut and Robin collects and screams. Perhaps he got excited that he took it

18.1

Thomas to Pollard, 1 wide, full and wide, swing and a miss.

18.1

Thomas to Pollard, FOUR, Crash wallop. He clears the front foot and whacks this full delivery past the umpire. He almost decapitates Dharmasena

18.2

Thomas to Pollard, 1 wide, the bouncer arrives and it flies over Pollard, who was moving outside leg stump. It went right over him; can't be a leg-side wide. Was it for the height? It wasn't too high as well.

18.2

Thomas to Pollard, SIX, Pullhardddd! The big man is laying into Pune. Again, he moves outside leg, Thomas fires it full and Pollard crash-lands it over long-on

18.3

Thomas to Pollard, (no ball) 1 run, the slower bouncer outside off and Pollard waits. And waits. And then he drags it from outside off to wide midwicket. No ball called for the second bouncer of the over. It was about throat high. Not over his head.

18.3

Thomas to Pollard, FOUR, Rubbish delivery. Overpitched delivery and Pollard blasts this to the long-off boundary. Just a short distance to the right of the fielder but he had no chance.

18.4

Thomas to Pollard, 1 run, low full toss this time, drilled to long-on

Mumbai Indians 144/6   KA Pollard 26* (16b 2x4 2x6)

Taylor to Pollard, 2 runs, slower one outside off, lifted to long-off for a single. Taylor doesn't collect the throw from Jhunjhunwala and Pollard will get back on strike.

19.2

Taylor to Pollard, 4 byes, More fumbles. This time from Robin, who was rock solid so far. Pollard didn't connect with the yorker length delivery and it bounced just before Robin who fails to collect it

19.3

Taylor to Pollard, 1 leg bye, goes for the slower bouncer this time and Pollard is too early into the pull shot. The ball bounds off the body to the leg side

19.5

Taylor to Pollard, no run, A fine bouncer outside off, Pollard has a crack at it but can only bottom-edge it and the ball rolls to the keeper.

19.6

Taylor to Pollard, OUT, gets outside leg and goes for a slog to the on side but ends up slicing it to Yuvraj at covers. Very fine over from Jerome.

KA Pollard c Yuvraj Singh b Taylor 28 (21b 2x4 2x6) SR: 133.33

Mumbai Indians 160/7   KA Pollard 28 (21b 2x4 2x6)
