Syed Mohammad to Pollard, SIX, massive! a length ball and Pollard hits that a mile into the air and plenty of rows behind long-off, didn't seem to put much effort in that either


Syed Mohammad to Pollard, 2 runs, whipped away towards midwicket for two more


Syed Mohammad to Pollard, 2 runs, short of length ball is whipped towards midwicket for a quick two, there's a chance of an overthrow but both batsmen had overrun


Syed Mohammad to Pollard, 1 run, length ball on the pads, helped down to short fine leg, lucky for the bowler there, a bit of placement on that, and it was a boundary


Syed Mohammad to Pollard, SIX, another massive six, Pollard showing off his hitting skills, this was a monster hit, easily clears the rope, lands way beyond long-on, fasten your seatbelts folks! the next five overs promises to be fun

Mumbai Indians 143/3   KA Pollard 18* (8b 2x6)

Singh to Pollard, 1 wide, short of length and down the leg side


Singh to Pollard, FOUR, full ball outside off, Pollard power! that is drilled past long-off for four, that wasn't even off the middle of the bat, not quite an edge but off the inside half of the bat, still that travelled with serious haste


Singh to Pollard, SIX, another massive hit, RP searching for the yorker but provides a length ball, launched for six over long-on


Singh to Pollard, no run, good bouncer from RP Singh, testing Pollard who goes for the pull but doesn't connect


Singh to Pollard, FOUR, on the pads with fine leg in the circle, that's a poor line, easy put away to the backward square leg boundary


Singh to Pollard, 1 run, full and wide outside off, Pollard powers that towards sweeper cover, Pollard happy with a single

Mumbai Indians 168/3   KA Pollard 33* (13b 2x4 3x6)

Vinay Kumar to Pollard, 1 run, starts the over with a full toss, escapes with only a single, Pollard sends that towards midwicket, AB cuts it off


Vinay Kumar to Pollard, OUT, full and outside off, and has Kohli done it again?, Pollard punches the ball towards extra cover once more, Kohli is onto it once more and another direct hit hands Rayudu a diamond duck, Rayudu was looking to get back in the crease after taking a start, Vinay was in the way though, as he was backing away from the stumps to collect the throw, Rayudu's bat is lifted off the ground after it collides with Vinay's leg, he hasn't made it back into the crease, and he is sent on his way, not intentional from Vinay, tough luck for Rayudu

AT Rayudu run out 0 (2m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -


Vinay Kumar to Pollard, OUT, a team hat-trick for RCB, the danger man Pollard departs now, a short ball that Pollard looks to pull, top edges it and the ball swirls towards third man, Rampaul does well to collect that one, Vinay roars in delight, Mumabi losing their way

KA Pollard c Rampaul b Vinay Kumar 34 (28m 16b 2x4 3x6) SR: 212.50

Mumbai Indians 169/6   KA Pollard 34 (16b 2x4 3x6)
