Indian Premier League - Elimination final

Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians

Chennai Super Kings won by 38 runs


Jakati to Tendulkar, OUT, gone, Tendulkar is run-out, almost sacrificing it for Smith! That was cut away to the backward point, fielded well by Jadeja, Smith was going for the run and Tendulkar was not, the fielder throws it to the non-striker's end and Tendulkar decides to make that sacrifice by crossing over. In the end, he also speaks to Smith to not worry about it and carry on hitting...!

SR Tendulkar run out 11 (11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Mumbai Indians 47/1   DR Smith 33* (19b 4x4 2x6)   SB Jakati 3-0-19-0


Jakati to Smith, OUT, goes for a slog, gone, caught at point! Jakati has bowled well so far to Smith, who has been working him away for singles all this while, this time decides to play a heave over mid-wicket, gets a top edge and is caught by Jadeja pedalling back

DR Smith c Jadeja b Jakati 38 (22b 5x4 2x6) SR: 172.72

Mumbai Indians 55/2   RG Sharma 3* (5b)   SB Jakati 3.2-0-20-1


Morkel to Karthik, OUT, edged and gone, Karthik's out, caught by the wicket-keeper! It was outside the off stump, deviating slightly away from the batsman and he tried to open the face of the bat through to the third-man, gets only an outside edge and the keeper could not have got it easier.

KD Karthik c †Dhoni b Morkel 6 (4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Mumbai Indians 68/3   RG Sharma 10* (12b)   JA Morkel 0.1-0-0-1


Morkel to Sharma, OUT, Rohit's edged behind! He charged Morkel and swung hard at a good length ball that pitched around off and seamed away a little. It was a thick outside edge and Dhoni caught it easily.

RG Sharma c †Dhoni b Morkel 14 (19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 73.68

Mumbai Indians 77/4   JEC Franklin 3* (5b)   JA Morkel 1.1-0-3-2


Ashwin to Rayudu, OUT, massive wicket for Super Kings! Rayudu has slog-swept the flighted offbreak straight to Vijay at deep midwicket, who does a little jig after taking the catch. Rayudu has finished many games for Mumbai this season, he won't finish this one. I think Vijay was trying to move like Jagger Bravo

AT Rayudu c Vijay b Ashwin 11 (7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 157.14

Mumbai Indians 96/5   JEC Franklin 10* (8b 1x6)   R Ashwin 2.5-0-17-1


Bravo to Franklin, OUT, caught behind! They're edging everything, and Bravo's hamstring seems perfectly fine as he takes off on a spirited celebratory run. Franklin tried to pull a delivery that was not that short and was too close to off stump. He got a bottom edge, which Dhoni stooped to catch

JEC Franklin c †Dhoni b Bravo 13 (13b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Mumbai Indians 102/6   KA Pollard 2* (5b)   DJ Bravo 0.3-0-1-1


Hilfenhaus to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Raina's taken a superb catch! And Harbhajan's IPL could be over. He slogs again at a short of a length ball outside off and slices it high in the air past point. Raina ran back from inside the circle, kept his eyes on the swirling ball, kept his balance, judged it perfectly, and took it over his head

Harbhajan Singh c Raina b Hilfenhaus 1 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Mumbai Indians 103/7   KA Pollard 2* (6b)   BW Hilfenhaus 2.2-0-28-1


Bravo to Pollard, OUT, Pollard tries to hammer a short ball from wide outside off stump, he ends up mis-hitting it high in the air towards long-on, where Raina settles under the catch and takes it. A great moment between the two Trinidadians, Bravo seemed to be telling Pollard to get on a plane. Mumbai Indians are outta here. Pollard took that little send off well, and there were smiles at the end of it. He and Bravo get along.

KA Pollard c Raina b Bravo 16 (19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 84.21

Mumbai Indians 129/8   SL Malinga 8* (10b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 3-0-10-2


Jadeja to Malinga, OUT, bowled him! Malinga moved outside leg stump and tried to heave across the line, the ball thudded into his back leg and on to leg stump

SL Malinga b Jadeja 17 (16b 1x4 1x6) SR: 106.25

Mumbai Indians 148/9   DS Kulkarni 10* (4b 2x4)   RA Jadeja 1.4-0-14-1
