Thomas to Suman, FOUR, Punched! Short of length outside off and Suman plays a lovely punchy drive to wide long-off boundary

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


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


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.


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


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.


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.


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


Thomas to Harbhajan Singh, 2 runs, Slice of life! Harbhajan slices the full delivery up and over point.


Thomas to Harbhajan Singh, SIX, 28 runs from the over! Whoa! What an over. Wicked fun if you are a neutral or a Mumbai fan. Full and straight, Harbhajan opens his stance, gets the front leg out of the away and lofts it over long-off. It lands full on the boundary ropes. Manish Pandey signals six.

Mumbai Indians 152/6   AC Thomas 4-0-53-1
