Indian Premier League - 44th match

Pune Warriors v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 21 runs

Welcome to the 44th match of the IPL: Mumbai v Pune.

Will Sourav Ganguly play today? Have a look at the Preview by Sid Talya

A stat from his preview: "Lasith Malinga has grabbed 52 wickets overall in the IPL and is fourth in the list. However, his wickets have come in 34 games while those ahead of him have taken a far longer time. Irfan Pathan has played 51 games, Shane Warne 50, Pragyan Ojha 49 and RP Singh - the table leader with 57 wickets - 51."

Yuvraj:" Every game is like a final for us. I don't know whether its a good place to but lets see how we go." On Ganguly getting a game: "No he has to train! (he says with a laugh)"

Toss: Pune choose to bowl.

Yuvraj: "We are going to bowl. We are going to chase. Most of the times in DY Patil its better to chase."

Tendulkar: "I would have probably bowled as well. The momentum is with us and its important to keep the momentum going. This is a beautiful ground. I have always loved it. Fabulous atmosphere."

Nick sends in our first comment: "We have seen mistakes of captain Yuvraj on ground so far, but watching him in last press conference was like watching accident happening in slow motion. Hopefully sheer presence of Ganguly can inspire the team."

Rishav: "Half the match interest is gone..as Gangully is not playing..."

Sathish: "what am I hearing, Dada is not playing????? totally dissapointed, i will better switch off my TV"

AC Blizzard c †Uthappa b Thomas 6 (6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

3.3

Wagh to Rayudu, no run, digs this in short and Rayudu ducks

8.2

Yuvraj Singh to Tendulkar, OUT, It's Jessy's turn to fly after Robin. Tendulkar moved outside leg and went inside-out to left of short extra cover. Just one little thing stood in his way. Well, one solid big thing. Jesse Ryder flew to his left to hold on to a good catch. Tendulkar survived that lbw but is gone now

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.
