Sharma to Smith, no run, fuller on the off stump and he gets his bat and pad out and defends it back to the bowler


Sharma to Smith, FOUR, crunched, we have heard some superb sounds off the bat tonight and this is one of them, on a length and outside the off stump, cracked through extra-cover


Sharma to Smith, 1 run, on a length this time but closer to the stumps, middle stump line, tapped to the mid-on area for a single


Sharma to Tare, FOUR, aah, shot again, this was his first ball and it was short and wide, cracks it through the covers for a four, bisected too and hit powerfully


Sharma to Tare, no run, and now has a flay at it, was slightly shorter and outside the off stump, was looking to hit it on the up but beaten through to the keeper


Sharma to Tare, 1 run, the third-man's up inside the circle and he looks to dab it through that area, gets it away to deep backward point region for a single

Mumbai Indians 10/0   MM Sharma 1-0-10-0

Sharma to Smith, 1 run, shortens his length and pushes into the covers, gets away for a quick single


Sharma to Karthik, no run, outside the off stump and on a length, pushed into the covers where it goes straight to the fielder


Sharma to Karthik, no run, and that nips away slightly, was on a length and he was looking to drive through the line, misses the outside edge


Sharma to Karthik, no run, outside the off stump and tapped straight to point, yet to get off the mark here Karthik


Sharma to Karthik, no run, and this time he gets it off the middle of the bat, length ball and he drives it through the line but it's hit hard and straight to mid-off, no chance of a single


Sharma to Karthik, FOUR, finally slaps it in the gap, he had been timing them well but it was the placement which was a problem, this was placed through extra-cover for a four

Mumbai Indians 17/1   MM Sharma 2-0-15-0

Sharma to Smith, SIX, up and over and for a six, that's a rather long one that! was fuller on the middle stump and like many of the others that's been crunched over the bowler's head for a six!


Sharma to Smith, SIX, pulls it back now, a deliberate bouncer, which is a good idea actually, but Smith hooks it over fine-leg for another six! two in two and now it gets interesting...


Sharma to Smith, 1 run, pitched up but outside the off stump, thought it was not too quick either, and driven through the covers for a single, fielded well by Raina


Sharma to Karthik, no run, was looking to paddle it over short fine-leg this time, was outside the off stump and skids on to the batsman, misses his bat and hits his pads, was outside the line of the off stump


Sharma to Karthik, no run, shorter, slower, read well too and cut hard, badly placed though, straight to the point fielder


Sharma to Karthik, no run, fuller on the middle stump and that's flicked away to wide mid-on, that looked to be going through for a four before a diving, orange-capped Hussey stops it, should have been a single but Smith sends Karthik back and he has to dive back in to get home

Mumbai Indians 40/1   MM Sharma 3-0-28-0

Sharma to Rayudu, FOUR, full-toss and that's spanked through wide long-on for a four, Bravo throws himself to his right for some reason with the ball so wide off him


Sharma to Rayudu, OUT, slower one and that's been taken again! he had no option but to slog it away, gets a bit of a top-edge and its gone very high, a lot of players were getting close to it, in the end it was Morris who was running back, takes it, very well too

AT Rayudu c Morris b Sharma 15 (30m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 107.14


Sharma to Ojha, no run, fuller outside the off stump from round the stumps, driven to the covers


Sharma to Ojha, OUT, and taken again, another good catch to finish things off for Chennai! was a slower one and he tries to go inside out and over the in-field, gets it away too but Bravo runs from mid-off to take the catch superbly to his right, it was a good 10 yards away too...goes for a nice, little sprint too after taking it.

PP Ojha c Bravo b Sharma 0 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Mumbai Indians 144/10   MM Sharma 3.4-0-32-2
