13 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

The Sunrisers openers have made their way out. Parthiv Patel and Shikhar Dhawan are the two batsmen. Johnson to start. Two slips in place.

Shree Harsha Tummala: "Come on cricinfo, calling SRH the worst of the top teams is a little too harsh, considering that they have beaten 2 of those top teams , almost had chennai, if not for mishys drop."

Neel: "Wow ..What an IPL so far..I think this is the first time there is no clear No 1 team in the points table. There is possibly 7 teams in the fray for playoffs and 3 teams that are competing for the No 1 spot in the table. Cricinfo had a great article on the 7 teams and their chances" Here's the piece you are talking about.

Manish: "Looking forward to see Mitchell Johnson bowling those unplayable swingers. Also MI will be itching to take revenge from Sunrisers. Expecting a low scoring thriller considering both the team have world class bowling attack."

saipatil: "I think Maxwell would have been best choice today compared to Pollard, looking at the conditions and the way he was playing in his last match. What do you think?"

Avinesh: "@Sid - Only difference will be Mumbai Indians won by 'Wickets' instead of 'Runs'."

This is the first time Mumbai have lost the toss at home this season. They have batted first in all their six games before this, and won the match. Will today be different?

Toss time: Cameron White is captaining the Sunrisers. Sunrisers have won the toss and chosen to bat. Rohit says Mumbai would have batted first had they won the toss. Pollard replaces Maxwell, Dhawal replaces Abu Nechim. Sunrisers are unchanged.

Surendranadh V: "Just to remind you that Mumbai have a chance to displace CSK from the top spot.." Indeed

Sumit Sengupta: "Another cracking contest on the card, SRH is known for winning at vital junctions, can they repeat here once more, time to fasten your belts and relax, we have a match here,,,,,,"

Sri: "SRH has to win today's game. They have a very poor NRR, so it's almost like a knock out for them. They shouldn't rely on other teams for their progress to playoff. Go SRH, Go.."

abhishek: "Today is the day when Mumbai are finally gonna be defeated at home by the Hyderabad's pace attack !"

Tanmay: "Had to come to Germany for a summer internship. But still following the ipl through espn cricinfo. Thanks a lot. It has been an awesome experience."

Hi folks, hello and welcome to our coverage of the game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Hyderabad have a chance today to displace Royal Challengers from the No.4 spot in the points table currently, but can they beat Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede?

An attractive little innings from Parthiv, was looking good.

Davo: "Strange, I seem to recall Johnson obliterating the English at Perth. At any rate, this is T20, where a guy who averages twenty runs an innings can look like a hero for a couple of overs by swinging at everything. Let's see who laughs last. I'm picking Johnson."

4.4

Johnson to Vihari, no run, that was quick, good, sharp bouncer banged in on middle and he ducks under that one

Gaurav Manchanda: "Dwayne smith runs in last 5 matches, 33, 38, 22, 47, 0. No doubt, people would say: "this guy is scoring consistently and looks in good form". Again D Smith runs in last 5 matches: 33 (32), 38 (40), 22 (24), 47 (53), 0(1). Now, same people would say "this guy is really struggling and looks completely out of sorts"."

5.5

Harbhajan Singh to Dhawan, FOUR, quicker through the air, on middle and leg and he sweeps it fine this tine, between short fine and square leg

5.6

6.5

Ojha to Vihari, 1 run, angling in towards middle, defended it into the leg side towards square leg for a single

Neil Thompson: "Re: Mitchell Johnson - whoever laughs last will depend on which Mitchell Johnson turns up in each game. He can win and almost lose matches all by himself. It's wonderful that the after dominating world cricket for 10+ years the Aussies are now reduced to pinning their hopes on him. And Steve Smith's batting."

6.6

Ojha to Dhawan, 1 run, on the pads, played towards short fine for a single

End of over 7 (11 runs) Sunrisers Hyderabad 63/1 (RR: 9.00)

    • PP Ojha 1-0-11-0
    • Harbhajan Singh 2-0-13-0

Riddymon: "This is probably the best start that Sunrisers have had all tournament. If they can reach around 80-90 runs by the 10th over, they're putting themselves in a good position to let their big hitters like Perera, Sammy and Steyn cut loose. I for one am itching see a few Sammy lofted drives down the ground for the maximum."

7.6

Kulkarni to Vihari, no run, back of a length on middle, knocks it down into the leg side, thought of a single, was wisely sent back

End of over 8 (7 runs) Sunrisers Hyderabad 70/1 (RR: 8.75)

    • GH Vihari 6 (8b 1x4)
    • S Dhawan 34 (26b 2x4 2x6)
    • DS Kulkarni 2-0-19-0
    • PP Ojha 1-0-11-0

It seems like it's timeout time.

Karthik: "While I agree on Johnson's ability to turn matches singlehandedly, I wouldn't agree that the Aussies are pinning their hopes on him - left him out of the Ashes squad didn't they?"

8.1

Ojha to Dhawan, 1 run, flat on leg stump, turned towards square leg for a single

    • DS Kulkarni 2-0-19-0

PeterA: "One bad over and all talks are about Mitchell Johnson. That's life, isn't it? :-) But, remember.. He was the one who tamed Chris Gayle after he demolished Pune. And he has been pivotal in Mumbai's rise in this year's IPL."

Kieron Pollard to bowl.

9.1

Pollard to Dhawan, 1 run, driven neatly towards long-off for a single

9.2

9.5

Pollard to Dhawan, 1 run, moved well across and tried to scoop that fine, almost falls over, just the single to square leg

Anil: "Mitch J is just like Sreesanth. Both have the potential to turn fates of matches singlehandedly, and bothways so--to win or loss. You never know which form of them will turn ou on the field--the winning one or the losing one. That's why the team thinktanks do not pin their hopes on them."

9.6

Pollard to Vihari, 1 run, slow and short outside off, guides that wide of Tendulkar at short third for a single

SRH fan: "Can't shake off the feeling this is a really good batting pitch and this start is not enough. Shouldn't White have backed himself after Patel's start and backed himself instead of sending in Vihari who is useful but not exactly top speed"

End of over 10 (10 runs) Sunrisers Hyderabad 87/1 (RR: 8.70)

    • GH Vihari 11 (13b 1x4)

Malinga to Vihari, no run, low full toss on middle, digs it out towards midwicket

10.2

Malinga to Vihari, 1 run, slower one bowled short, chopped behind point for a single

Varun: "Shikhar Dhawan yet again showing his class. He seems to be in prime form after a confident showing against Australia and it really will be interesting to see him play in seaming conditions in England during the Champions Trophy."

This stand is worth 50

10.3

Malinga to Dhawan, 2 runs, slower one bowled on the pads, flicked away square, Smith runs across and keeps them to two, diving to his left

10.4

Malinga to Dhawan, no run, banged in short on middle and he sways out of the way, thought of pulling it initially but wisely backed out, quick from Malinga

10.5

Malinga to Dhawan, FOUR, what a shot, and what a way to bring up his fifty, pitched up and he creams it through the covers

10.6

Malinga to Dhawan, FOUR, is that six? No, just landed short of the boundary, slower one bowled short and Dhawan steps out to slash that viciously over point for a one bounce four

Dr NTR: "Hanuma Vihari seems to be in the classical mould who can steady the innings rather than a typical T-20 player? I am not sure if it was the right decision to have sent him when SRH was doing well. He is the only top order batsman who is yet to hit a six in IPL."

End of over 11 (11 runs) Sunrisers Hyderabad 98/1 (RR: 8.90)

    • S Dhawan 56 (37b 6x4 2x6)

    • Harbhajan Singh 3-0-19-0
    • SL Malinga 2-0-14-1

Bindu Kumar: "Plenty of reasons to follow this match - Dhawan's brilliance, Malinga's sling, Pollard's fielding, etc but nothing can be more important than watching it in an anticipation of SRH's defeat for an RCB fan like me :)"

12.3

Johnson to Dhawan, 1 run, shortish outside off, cracks it towards deep cover for a single, slower one bowled short

Shakib: "@Anil, that's a bit harsh on Johnson. He is clearly not as inconsistent as Sreesanth, who has an ODI average of 33+ with an economy of 6.07, while picks up a wicket every 25 runs and goes for only 4.82 an over. 188 wickets in 121 matches requires some consistency..Anyway, comparing Johnson's record to a consistent bowler like James Anderson, who has a higher bowling average and economy rate than Johnson in ODI's. So Johnson's not that bad at all, as far as limited overs cricket is concerned"

12.4

Johnson to Vihari, 1 run, slower one bowled short outside off, chops that one down towards third man

12.5

Johnson to Dhawan, OUT, gone, Johnson dismisses Dhawan with a slower ball, Dhawan charged out to Johnson there, and pushed loosely at it after realising that was the slower one, gets an nick and Karthik takes it easily

ninesh : "Here in Tokyo for Biotech conference tomorrow at 6.30 in morning and I will be up almost till 4 in morning in anticipation to see MI's home record unbroken. Look like I have finally found the successful formula for publishing the comment, proper mix of Location, time and purpose of being up late in the morning, watching IPL. If it works, I will be going to conference without sleeping for even a minute."

14.1

Kulkarni to Vihari, FOUR, picks up a four, Dhawal drops short on middle and pulls it away over midwicket, nicely struck, found the gap

Shakib: "Not only Anderson, but Johnson has better figures than Steyn as well in ODI cricket (no way in Test's)..Steyn's economy 4.91 and bowling average 29.33/Johnson's avg 25.17 and economy 4.82"

Kulkarni to White, FOUR, this one was hammered alright, length ball for White, sat up nicely and he absolutely blasted that over the bowler's head for a one bounce four

Sameer: "I reckon one of the MOST under-rated factors of this years IPL for Mumbai, has been Rohit Sharma's captaincy. His bowling changes have been phenomenal, his own batting has blossomed under responsibility of captaincy and marshalling a team of superstars is no mean feat! He has looked at complete ease all the way!!"

15.1

Ojha to Vihari, FOUR, tossed up and Vihari collects a boundary, slog-sweeping that over midwicket

15.2

Ojha to Vihari, 2 runs, takes that one from outside off and drags it square into the deep for a couple more runs

Timothy : "Looking at the talent of Dhawan, he really should be considered as a regular for India in all three formats. From what I've seen from him recently, he really knows how to adjust and adapt to different formats pretty rapidly."

Johnson to bowl his final over

17.1

Vinod Kumar: "I guess getting a comment published in Cricinfo's commentary has become an epitome of personal success for thousands of people like me. You read about this tussle or disappointment or joy in every match. I sometimes wonder who we all are! My guess is that we are all 40+ males who are "living the dream". In our time, there wasn't as much cricket that we could participate in or show our talent in - just like there weren't all these Sa Re Ga Ma Pa's or Indian Idols in our time!! Oh well...such is life!!"

17.5

Johnson to White, no run, appeal for a catch, went for the pull and there was a sound as it went past White's bat, Karthik tok it on the half-volley and he appealed, he claimed the catch, replays showed that clearly fell short, there was a puff of dust as it landed as well, that's not out

17.6

Johnson to White, SIX, Johnson's spell ends in disappointment for the bowler, ends up bowling a slower ball that serves as a long hop and White has bludgeoned it over the deep midwicket boundary
