Mumbai Indians 51/2   RG Sharma 22* (17b 3x4)   SK Warne 1-0-11-0

Singh to Tendulkar, FOUR, too cute from SRT. He makes a little move across his stumps and knows there's a gap at fine leg, so he scoops the ball through there and its an easy boundary

Mumbai Indians 65/2   SR Tendulkar 31* (34b 3x4)   A Singh 0.2-0-4-0

Singh to Sharma, FOUR, well, Amit Singh, if you are going to open a door, Sharma is going to walk through it. Too much width outside off and Sharma takes full advantage, drived through point and its an easy four

Botha to Sharma, FOUR, very nice from Shrama, gives himself some room and hits against the turn, its a bit short and he carves it on the off side, great timing takes it to the boundary t

Mumbai Indians 93/3   RG Sharma 47* (33b 5x4 1x6)   J Botha 2.5-0-16-0

Menaria to Pollard, FOUR, he's been given a chance and he is taking it. Flat bats that past the non striker and it races to long on
