Indian Premier League - 45th match

Pune Warriors v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 1 run

5.1

Nehra to Franklin, no run, pitched short of length, on the middle stump, he tries to play it through the leg side but it does not go too far.

5.2

Nehra to Franklin, SIX, launched, that cannot be anything but a launch! It was pitched right up to the bat and he has smacked it with the angle over mid-wicket for the first six of the innings

5.3

Nehra to Franklin, no run, outside the off stump, on a length, punched to the off side and it goes to the fielder in the covers

5.4

Nehra to Franklin, FOUR, cute, cheeky or clever, you decide, but this gets him four! Pitched a tad short, Franklin sees the ball on to his bat, opens its face and it goes through the region where slips would have been.

5.5

Nehra to Franklin, FOUR, smashed it away for four! The delivery was shorter this time and much like how he lofted the six, he pulls it over the mid-wicket for a four this time

5.6

Nehra to Franklin, no run, a dot ball to end, outside the off stump, punched to the covers and that is the end of Powerplay overs too.

Mumbai Indians 42/0   A Nehra 1-0-14-0

11.1

Nehra to Peterson, no run, outside the off stump, pushed to the point region and it goes quickly to the fielder, nothing for Peterson.

11.2

Nehra to Peterson, 1 bye, goes down the pitch, tries to pull it away, misses and so does the wicket-keeper, they are off for a bye. The fielding has been scratchy from Pune so far, but no drops. Yet anyway.

11.3

Nehra to Tendulkar, 1 run, on the middle stump, punched through the covers for a single, he had opened the bat there.

11.4

Nehra to Peterson, 1 run, dropped is it? And I was just speaking of they not having dropped any so far! Shortish, wanted to pull, went back to the bowler over his head and he fails to hold on!

11.5

Nehra to Tendulkar, no run, punched to the off side, but straight to the fielder.

11.6

Nehra to Tendulkar, OUT, nicked and gone! Tendulkar is out! Nehra might have dropped Peterson but he has got the important wicket of Sachin Tendulkar, tried to late-cut it through third-man but gets an edge through to the wicket-keeper

SR Tendulkar c †Uthappa b Nehra 34 (59m 35b 4x4 0x6) SR: 97.14

Mumbai Indians 81/3   A Nehra 2-0-16-1

13.1

Nehra to Karthik, no run, outside the off stump, moving further away, Karthik tries to play it through third-man, misses and it goes to the wicket-keeper

13.2

Nehra to Karthik, 1 run, going down the pitch and he tries to pull it away, to the fine-leg fielder

13.3

Nehra to Peterson, OUT, top-edge and this is caught! Short ball yet again and Peterson tries to go for a pull, comes on faster to the batsman, gets a top-edge and Ganguly runs in from long-off to take the catch.

RJ Peterson c Ganguly b Nehra 13 (23m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 92.85

13.4

13.6

Nehra to Rayudu, no run, on the middle stump, Rayadu goes on to the back foot and defends. The run-rate's almost six and we have a Time-Out.

15.1

Nehra to Karthik, no run, tries to drive it on the up, missed and straight to the keeper

15.2

Nehra to Karthik, no run, pitched up, outside the off stump and missed again! Went for a drive and he did not get any bat on it.

15.3

Nehra to Karthik, 1 run, well bowled, on the middle, quicker from Nehra, dabs it to the off side for a single

15.4

Nehra to Perera, no run, tries to cut a ball that was too close to, keeps a tad low as well and beats the batsman.

15.5

Nehra to Perera, no run, a good length ball, tries to hit on the up, misses through to the wicket-keeper yet again

15.6

Nehra to Perera, OUT, run-out appeal, third umpire called! They went for a single, after there was an appeal for an lbw, the umpire ruled him not-out for the lbw but Perera was slow to get to the other end and Smith, from point, hits the stump direct, end of the Sri Lankan all-rounder!

NLTC Perera run out 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Mumbai Indians 93/6   A Nehra 4-0-19-2
