Indian Premier League, Qualifier 2: Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals at Kolkata, May 24, 2013
Mumbai Indians won by 4 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)
24 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Cooper to Tare, OUT, fuller and chipped straight to long-on, caught! that was hit off the middle of the bat, it was a slower one and that gets it to scoop up to the fielder who looked like he wasn't quite at the edge of the fence, one down now

AP Tare c Samson b Cooper 35 (41m 27b 3x4 2x6) SR: 129.62

Mumbai Indians 70/1   DR Smith 33* (28b 5x4)   KK Cooper 0.1-0-0-1

Cooper to Karthik, OUT, gone this time, short of length and he's cut it straight to the point fielder! this wasn't the best of deliveries, looked innocuous enough to go for the cut, and he does that, probably there wasn't as much room as DK would have liked and slapped straight to the fielder

KD Karthik c Rahane b Cooper 22 (22m 17b 3x4 0x6) SR: 129.41

Mumbai Indians 125/2   DR Smith 61* (41b 6x4 2x6)   KK Cooper 2.1-0-17-2

Trivedi to Sharma, OUT, bowled him, the stumps are on the ground! it was short of length and Rohit goes for a slog across the line, misses and it crashes into the stumps, three down and a bit of a lifeline for the Royals

RG Sharma b Trivedi 2 (5m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Mumbai Indians 128/3   DR Smith 62* (43b 6x4 2x6)   SK Trivedi 3.5-0-22-1

Binny to Smith, OUT, and taken now, that's number four! was a slower one on his pads, was looking to punch it over the leg side but the slowness of the delivery seems to have defeated the stroke, spoons it to the fielder who takes it calmly

DR Smith c Samson b Binny 62 (76m 44b 6x4 2x6) SR: 140.90

Mumbai Indians 132/4   KA Pollard 4* (3b)   STR Binny 0.3-0-3-1

Faulkner to Pollard, OUT, gone, Pollard's chipped it straight to the fielder! on his pads yet again and he was looking for his short arm jab with the flick, comes off the middle of the bat and it's been straight to the fielder

KA Pollard c Cooper b Faulkner 11 (10m 6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 183.33

Mumbai Indians 141/5   AT Rayudu 2* (3b)   JP Faulkner 3.3-0-35-1

Watson to Rayudu, OUT, bowled him, wicket! he was looking to work it through the third-man there, but the ball was a lot quicker, was a leg-cutter and moves away from the bat, beats it and the stumps are rattled!

AT Rayudu b Watson 17 (13m 11b 1x4 1x6) SR: 154.54

Mumbai Indians 160/6   Harbhajan Singh 2* (3b)   SR Watson 2.2-0-26-1
