Indian Premier League - 44th match

Pune Warriors v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 21 runs

7.1

Sharma to Rayudu, no run, skids outside off stump, cut away to backward point

7.2

Sharma to Rayudu, no run, Lovey topspinner! It skidded on straight outside off from a length and Rayudu is beaten on the cut. Not the length for that shot

7.3

Sharma to Rayudu, no run, Like Umar Akmal, Rayudu is hell bent on cutting even length deliveries and from the stumps. This time he makes contact and the backward point intercepts

7.4

Sharma to Rayudu, 1 run, slower, full again, this time Rayudu eases it to long-off

7.5

Sharma to Tendulkar, no run, stays back to push the quickish leg break to point

7.6

Sharma to Tendulkar, 1 run, shuffles across to tap it wide of midwicket

Mumbai Indians 58/1   R Sharma 1-0-2-0

9.1

Sharma to Rayudu, 1 run, low dipping full toss on the pads, flicked away for a single

9.2

Sharma to Sharma, no run, leans forward to drive to covers

9.3

Sharma to Sharma, no run, dips on Rohit who was leaning forward, thinking it was a full toss but Rahul got it to dip on him and Rohit jabbed it back down the track

9.4

Sharma to Sharma, no run, gets forward to defend it down the pitch

9.5

Sharma to Sharma, 1 run, on the leg and middle, Rohit on drives it to long-on

9.6

Sharma to Rayudu, 1 run, Again that penchant to cut and pull irrespective of the length. Rahul gets this to skid on from a length and Rayudu, in a rich vein of form, goes for the pull and ends up mistiming it through vacant mid-on, down to long-on fielder

Mumbai Indians 65/2   R Sharma 2-0-5-0

14.1

Sharma to Sharma, no run, good delivery, skidding on quickly from the middle and off line to outside off; Rohit is beaten on the drive

14.2

Sharma to Sharma, OUT, Rahul gets just desserts! Rohit went for the slog sweep but this was turning away from the off stump line. And Rohit ended up top edging it towards deep mid-on where Pandey catches it on the rebound. It popped out and fell back in to his palms.

RG Sharma c Pandey b Sharma 12 (20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

14.3

Sharma to Suman, 1 run, stays back to clip it to square-leg for a single

14.4

Sharma to Pollard, no run, just outside off, taps to Taylor at short third man

14.5

Sharma to Pollard, no run, stays back to gently push this to point region

14.6

Sharma to Pollard, no run, oh lovely legbreak! He might not turn em big but gets it to do just about enough. It lands on the middle and off line and breaks away quickly and Pollard is comprehensively beaten. They go upstairs for the stumping Pollard just about got his back foot back to the ground

Mumbai Indians 97/4   R Sharma 3-0-6-1

16.1

Sharma to Pollard, 1 run, leans forward to defend a length delivery to the off side and rotates the strike over to Suman

16.2

Sharma to Suman, no run, moves outside leg and has a go at it. But missed it completely. Robin collects

16.3

Sharma to Suman, OUT, What a tournament this Rahul Sharma is having. Splendido! He tosses this up, slows up the pace and perhaps that fooled the batsman. Suman went for the big hit and ended up slicing it in the air and long-off moves in to take an easy catch. Fine fiery knock it was.

TL Suman c Manhas b Sharma 36 (16b 3x4 3x6) SR: 225.00

16.4

Sharma to Pollard, no run, from wide of the crease, short of length skidder, Pollard mistimes the pull to midwicket

16.5

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

16.6

Sharma to Pollard, no run, leans forward to defend this to the on side

Mumbai Indians 114/5   R Sharma 4-0-7-2
