Indian Premier League - 49th match

Mumbai Indians v Delhi Daredevils

Mumbai Indians won by 32 runs

7.58pm It's a massive crowd at the Wankhede, and it's extremely noisy. There is a huge roar as Sachin and Blizzard walk in.

7.50pm Shubham: "Today I dreamed that if my comment is published than my tomorrow's exam will go good. Cricinfo now its in your hand.. please help me get good marks." Hmmm. I hope you have been studying as well.

Nahim: "Ingram- very talented player, but somehow teams can never quite fit him in. He hasn't been a regular in the SA team either, despite scoring a couple of ODI centuries."

7.35pm It's the clash of the big cities, with Delhi Daredevils taking on the Mumbai Indians. Delhi desperately need a win, while a victory for Mumbai will all but ensure a place in the semi-finals.

Toss Delhi have won the toss and chose to field.

Sachin Tendulkar: "It's a typical Wankhede wicket, and should be good to bat on. I've spoken to Sehwag and he's promised to behave today."

Sehwag: "I've told my boys to play freely, and without pressure. Hopefully the crowd will support us also. The dew factor is there, which is why we want to bowl. All four games are must-win, hopefully we can do well today."

Tendulkar says 165-170 should be a good score. Mumbai have gone in unchanged, Delhi bring back David Warner for Aaron Finch. The other Delhi change is that Colin Ingram gets his first game of the season, ahead of Travis Birt. Spinner S Nadeem returns to the XI.

11.5

Agarkar to Sharma, 3 runs, launched towards long-on, should have been a single, the throw from the deep hits directly at the non-striker's end, batsmen sneak an extra run and when the ricochet is fielded and thrown to the keeper's end, there's no one backing up, so another run is gifted away, amateurish stuff from Delhi

13.6

Agarkar to Sharma, 1 leg bye, that looked out, Ajit was convinced it was, length ball coming in, looked to be hitting the stumps, perhaps the umpire thought the batsman was hit on the pads outside off, height wasn't an issue there, leg bye taken as the ball rolls to point, replays show that ball was hitting middle and leg

The stretch-your-legs Time-out is here.

Rohan: "Such great atmosphere at the Wankhede. Whoever says the IPL's lost its shine must come watch this game"
