Indian Premier League - Elimination final

Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 4 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

Welcome to the final elimination: Mumbai Indians v Kolkata Knight Riders.

SMGavaskar wants Andrew Symonds to replace Ray Price and Ambati Rayudu to bat at no 3.

At the end of that thriller in Kolkata, Gautam Gambhir had said: "Nothing has happened for which we have to keep our heads down, I have a lot of faith in Bala, that's why I gave him the final over. Nine times out of 10, in such a situation when 21 are needed in the last over, he would do the job for us."

Tendulkar: "Tremendous atmosphere here. Always terrific to play here. I haven't played a single game without pressure. So I don't see anything different about this eliminator pressure. The track looks good. It will be upto us."

Gambhir: That game is history now. We are confident and the bowling unit is a high-quality one. Both teams start even stevens. This is always a good wicket; it's a high-scoring pitch. (controlling)Nerves is the only thing that will win this game.

Toss: Sachin has chosen to bowl. "There might be dew later. I would like to bowl first. We have made 3-4 changes. Blizzard, Munaf, Dhawal Kulkarni are back. One more change. You have to look at the list! You have to enjoy today's game."

Gambhir: "We too would have fielded first. It's not in our hands. It's do or die for us and everyone is up to it. We have played some good cricket in this tournament and if we can take the same confidence ... We are going with the same team."

Harish sends in our first comment of the evening: "It will be a miracle if any of these 2 teams win the trophy. Not only they have to win 3 matches in a row, they will have to win them against the 3 good teams in the tournament."

Soundar: "It will be a test of character for Sachin as a captain. He's having all the feathers in his cap except the one - as a proud captain who took his team to a major title against competitive teams. Looking forward to sachin as a captain in the upcoming matches."

Sunit: "I hope MI learned the lesson in last IPL final and will not keep Pollard waiting until last moment...(he is my Trump too!) "

Kulkarni to Gambhir, no run, around the off stump line, stabbed away to point

Plenty of empty seats in the stands. Wonder whether its due to higher ticket prices for the play-offs. It used to be pretty much packed in the league games. divecha stand is like almost empty, where prices are 7500. Garware Pavilion too is only half-full.

Patel to Kallis, OUT, Munna bhai strikes. It was another full delivery, Kallis goes for the off drive but ended up slicing it a bit - Munaf had delivered it with a scrambled seam and that perhaps held up a bit - towards left of mid-off. Enter SRT into the act. He moved to his left and lunged out to pouch a low catch. Inches off the turf and all that jazz.

7.3

Franklin to ten Doeschate, no run, Shout for lbw Franklin came in around the stumps and got the ball to nip back in from outside off.

8.3

Pollard to ten Doeschate, no run, full and straight, flicked to the on side

Shivam has my head spinning: "Dhoni thinks from his brain and Gambhir from his Heart is what you mean. Sachin tries to think from his brain, but his heart always ends up interfering, which is why he thinks too much. I agree with the sehwag thing though."

Pollard to ten Doeschate, no run, leans forward to drive this to covers

8.5

Pollard to ten Doeschate, 1 run, slower one outside off, tapped to left of backward point for a single
