Indian Premier League - 37th match

Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers Bangalore

Mumbai Indians won by 58 runs

0.1

Rampaul to Smith, no run, what a ripper first up to start from Rampaul, back of a length ball swerves away and is far too good for Smith, who is beaten

0.2

Rampaul to Smith, no run, Smith looks to flay the next one through cover and he toe-ends it towards the fielder, think the bat is broken, yup, he gets a new one

0.3

Rampaul to Smith, 1 run, length ball just outside off, eased towards deep backward point for a single

Mumbai Indians 1/0   DR Smith 1* (3b)

1.1

Singh to Smith, no run, RP Singh swings it in towards the pads, defended to the leg side

1.2

Singh to Smith, 1 wide, swings it down the leg side

1.2

Singh to Smith, 1 leg bye, on the pads once more, this time it isn't down the leg side, off the pads towards midwicket for a leg-bye

1.4

Singh to Smith, no run, shapes in towards the pads, an lbw appeal but Smith is safe

1.5

Singh to Smith, 2 runs, curving in towards the pads once more, Smith is cramped up but squeezes it towards fine leg, Ravi Rampaul chases from short fine and makes a terrific diving save

1.6

Singh to Smith, no run, extra bounce for RP there, hit high on the bat as Smith defends to the off side

Mumbai Indians 12/0   DR Smith 3* (8b)

3.1

Singh to Smith, 1 run, an ugly swipe from Smith towards mid-on for a single, bringing back SRT on strike

3.6

Singh to Smith, 1 run, terrific diving stop from Vinay Kumar at mid-on, Smith played another of his ungainly swats, seemed headed for four till Vinay intervened

Mumbai Indians 31/1   DR Smith 5* (10b)

4.1

Unadkat to Smith, 1 run, a mistimed flat-batted slap towards extra cover from Smith

4.4

Unadkat to Smith, FOUR, short ball that sits up for Smith, a muscular swat sends the ball to the square-leg boundary for four, poor delivery form Unadkat

4.5

Unadkat to Smith, no run, short of length ball angling across, slapped towards point by Smith, can't find the gap

4.6

Unadkat to Smith, 1 run, Smith gets forward and looks to push the ball towards mid-off, edges it instead to the leg side for a single

Mumbai Indians 38/1   DR Smith 11* (14b 1x4)

5.1

Vinay Kumar to Smith, no run, length ball heading for the pads, defended to the leg side from the crease

5.2

Vinay Kumar to Smith, FOUR, slants it into the pads, rubbish delivery when you have fine leg in the circle, easily glanced for four

5.3

Vinay Kumar to Smith, 4 byes, good comeback from Vinay, a bouncer that takes off, Smith goes for the hook but that is too good for him, and too high for the leaping keeper as well

5.4

Vinay Kumar to Smith, no run, short of length ball just outside off, Smith looks to push towards cover and is beaten, Smith is unhappy at that weak attempt at a shot

5.5

Vinay Kumar to Smith, 2 runs, a mistimed lofted drive over mid-off for a couple, Smith clearly not at his best here

5.6

Vinay Kumar to Smith, FOUR, just after I say that, Smith plays a lovely drive through the covers for four, waits for it and just guides it past cover, and Mumbai's fifty comes up

Mumbai Indians 52/1   DR Smith 21* (20b 3x4)

6.2

Syed Mohammad to Smith, 1 run, full ball on middle, pushed towards mid-on for a single

6.4

Syed Mohammad to Smith, 1 run, angling in towards middle and leg, driven to mid-on for one more

6.6

Syed Mohammad to Smith, 2 runs, fired in, short ball and heading for the pads, clipped towards midwicket for a couple

Mumbai Indians 59/1   DR Smith 25* (23b 3x4)

7.3

Unadkat to Smith, no run, guided to short third, no time to get a run

7.4

Unadkat to Smith, no run, a slower one from Unadkat, Smith is surprised by that one, beaten outside off

7.5

Unadkat to Smith, no run, nearly a run-out, major confusion there, Smith played the ball towards backward point, Karthik wanted a single, Smith sends him back, the throw isn't the best from the fielder, Unadkat collects and hits the stumps but Karthik's dive gets him to safety

7.6

Unadkat to Smith, 1 run, a clean hit towards long-on, one bounce before reaching the fielder

Mumbai Indians 67/1   DR Smith 26* (27b 3x4)

8.1

Vinay Kumar to Smith, SIX, length ball, Smith doesn't bother much with his footwork as he slams that over the bowler's head for six

8.2

Vinay Kumar to Smith, FOUR, Vinay goes short, Smith expected it, he waits on the back foot and pummels that past midwicket for four, this short-arm pull is one of his favourite shots, and he gets plenty of power on it

8.3

Vinay Kumar to Smith, no run, pitched up and curling away from the batsman, who looks to power it through the cover but is beaten

8.4

Vinay Kumar to Smith, SIX, one of the flattest sixes of the season! Smith going bonkers here, it wasn't too short either, still Smith pulls it away with tremendous power to the square leg boundary

8.5

Vinay Kumar to Smith, 1 leg bye, a stifled lbw appeal as the ball was slanting down the leg side, Smith is caught on the crease but that hit high on the pad and would have sailed over as well

Mumbai Indians 84/1   DR Smith 42* (32b 4x4 2x6)

9.1

Unadkat to Smith, SIX, Smith taking full toll of the small boundaries at the Wankhede, this was a length ball that is muscled from off stump to the midwicket boundary for six

9.2

Unadkat to Smith, 1 run, outside off and that is stabbed towards point, again some confused calling, Karthik wanted one, Smith didn't, the throw from Dilshan was wide of the stumps and they pinched an onverthrow

9.5

Unadkat to Smith, 1 run, Smith shuffles away from the stumps and opens the face to guide the ball towards third man for a single that brings up his half-century, taken only 35 balls, that too after a pretty slow start

Mumbai Indians 95/1   DR Smith 50* (35b 4x4 3x6)

10.1

Syed Mohammad to Smith, OUT, Smith is gone, Syed Mohammed strikes, it was a short ball, it was flat and fast, Smith was looking to hammer it over midwicket, he misses and that crashes into the stumps

DR Smith b Syed Mohammad 50 (53m 36b 4x4 3x6) SR: 138.88

Mumbai Indians 97/2   DR Smith 50 (36b 4x4 3x6)
