Indian Premier League, 66th match: Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals at Mumbai, May 15, 2013
Mumbai Indians won by 14 runs
15 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Watson to Maxwell, OUT, gone, lbw, Watson's got his fellow Aussie here! it was on the middle stump and swinging back into the batsman, he was looking to jam his bat down quickly but it seems to have escaped it and hit the back thigh, the umpire thought for many a seconds before giving it. Watson's given him a nice, little farewell too.

GJ Maxwell lbw b Watson 23 (12m 17b 0x4 3x6) SR: 135.29

Mumbai Indians 25/1   AP Tare 2* (3b)   SR Watson 0.2-0-0-1

Tambe to Karthik, OUT, and now he's caught! wanted to slog sweep it yet again, this time it's been hit to the deep mid-wicket fielder, where Samson takes a good tumbling catch to send back Karthik

KD Karthik c Samson b Tambe 21 (37m 21b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Mumbai Indians 101/2   AP Tare 53* (33b 7x4 1x6)   PV Tambe 2.5-0-21-1

Cooper to Tare, OUT, chipped away and easily caught off a slower ball! took the pace off and was outside the off stump, he was looking to clear the in-field but plays his shot way too early, he's beaten and the ball lobs up for Watson to take a good catch running back

AP Tare c Watson b Cooper 59 (54m 37b 8x4 1x6) SR: 159.45

Mumbai Indians 108/3   RG Sharma 1* (1b)   KK Cooper 1.4-0-10-1

Faulkner to Sharma, OUT, top-edged and he's gone! it seemed to be a slower one and he was looking to pull it away, was attempting to help it away and the ball balloons high up in the air and Watson from short fine-leg takes a very well-judged catch there

RG Sharma c Watson b Faulkner 14 (20m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 155.55

Mumbai Indians 138/4   KA Pollard 15* (11b 1x4 1x6)   JP Faulkner 2.5-0-27-1

Cooper to Pollard, OUT, leading edge, and he's gone! run-out! this was a good delivery and deserved a wicket, the ball bounced more than he expected and takes the leading edge to the off side, Cooper does not get close to it on the full but he's quick enough to run to it, pick up and has a shy at the non-striker's end. Pollard was slow to get to that end, did not dive and he's quite outside the crease. A very, very good throw that.

KA Pollard run out 17 (24m 14b 1x4 1x6) SR: 121.42

Mumbai Indians 144/5   AT Rayudu 3* (2b)   KK Cooper 2.4-0-17-1

Watson to Rayudu, OUT, and this time he's caught, gets it away to deep mid-wicket where Samson takes it very well! the ball was fuller, Rayadu loves going back and he seemed to have thought that this was the one he could have tonked over the fielders, the pace seemed to have been taken off there and there's no timing on, holes out to Samson just a yard inside the fence

AT Rayudu c Samson b Watson 7 (13m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Mumbai Indians 151/6   Harbhajan Singh 3* (2b)   SR Watson 3.5-0-26-2

Faulkner to Johnson, OUT, gone, caught, straight to short fine-leg! it was a full-toss on the middle stump, he was looking to scoop it over the fine-leg fielder, gets it off the middle of the bat alright but the placement isn't what he would have wanted, straight to the fielder at pace

MG Johnson c Hodge b Faulkner 2 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Mumbai Indians 164/7   Harbhajan Singh 14* (5b 1x4 1x6)   JP Faulkner 3.3-0-30-2

Faulkner to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, OUT, gone, run-out off the last ball, it was fuller on the pads, flicked to the deep mid-wicket region, they take a single and Malinga wants to come back for the second, he comes back but Harbhajan decides he prefers a not-out next to his name and Malinga is easily run-out there

SL Malinga run out 1 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Mumbai Indians 166/8   Harbhajan Singh 15* (7b 1x4 1x6)   JP Faulkner 4-0-32-2
