Indian Premier League - Final

Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 23 runs

9.4

Morris to Pollard, FOUR, and he's away with a four first ball, but this is all timing, and little power, pitched up on off, he eases it past the bowler, mid off is up, long on has too much to do

9.5

Morris to Pollard, 1 run, a high full toss now, Pollard pats it down to long on

Mumbai Indians 57/4   KA Pollard 5* (2b 1x4)

10.2

Ashwin to Pollard, 1 run, slows it down and on a length, not too much turn and tapped straight to long-on

10.6

Ashwin to Pollard, no run, the other one, carrom ball that spins away and defends to the covers

Mumbai Indians 65/4   KA Pollard 6* (4b 1x4)

11.2

Jadeja to Pollard, FOUR, edged through the slips for a four, it was a quicker one and looks to drive through the line, some turn and beats Ashwin in the slips, through his hands!

11.3

Jadeja to Pollard, 1 run, shorter in length and taps it through extra-cover for a single

11.5

Jadeja to Pollard, 1 run, shortens his length for Pollard who gets back and cuts it through the covers for a single

Mumbai Indians 73/4   KA Pollard 12* (7b 2x4)

12.2

Ashwin to Pollard, 1 run, slows the pace down a lot and is on the middle stump, turn away from the batsman, flicked away to the leg side for a single

12.4

Ashwin to Pollard, no run, defended to the off side and he wants a single, sent back by Rayadu

12.5

Ashwin to Pollard, no run, drives it straight to the cover fielder now and remains rooted in the crease

12.6

Ashwin to Pollard, SIX, and now a six! tap, tap and smash! it was fuller on his pads and he swings his arms there, easily lofted over long-on for a six!

Mumbai Indians 84/4   KA Pollard 19* (11b 2x4 1x6)

13.2

Bravo to Pollard, 2 runs, sorter in length and hes punched it through the covers, the ball races away to the left of the sweeper fielder and a diving Hussey does well to get to the ball and stop the four

13.3

Bravo to Pollard, no run, quicker and on his pads, beaten for pace, the extra pace I mean, and hits his pads, rolls over to square-leg and wants a single, is sent back by Rayadu and by the time the throws comes in, he's back

13.4

Bravo to Pollard, 1 run, slows it down to 113.1 km/hr, waits for it and then taps it through the covers for a single

13.6

Bravo to Pollard, 1 run, quicker, fuller and driven straight to long-on for a single

Mumbai Indians 90/4   KA Pollard 23* (15b 2x4 1x6)

14.1

Jadeja to Pollard, FOUR, quicker, flatter and powerfully smashed away to the sweeper region, Vijay had to run across about 15 yards to get to it, gets the dive in, stops the ball but it rolls away off the deflection to the fence

14.2

Jadeja to Pollard, no run, and not some deftness, it was flatter outside the off stump and he tries to play it through to third-man, goes straight to the fielder

14.3

Jadeja to Pollard, FOUR, that was wide outside the off yet again and he swings it away, gets a huge inside edge through to wide long-on for a four!

14.4

Jadeja to Pollard, 1 run, shorter in length and he wants to cut it this time, gets it to the point region

Mumbai Indians 99/4   KA Pollard 32* (19b 4x4 1x6)

15.3

Bravo to Pollard, FOUR, punched back for a four, was a length ball on the off stump and he's smacked it back, Bravo was looking to get his right hand out but the balls touched the ropes by the time he's got it out!

15.4

Bravo to Pollard, no run, and that's hit him on the abdominal guard, it was a slower one, but gets a lot of bounce on that and Pollard's stinging, has a smile on his face though

15.5

Bravo to Pollard, no run, and another slower one, he was looking to walk across to the off stump and is beaten by the pace, rolls over to the keeper

15.6

Bravo to Pollard, 1 run, fuller, outside the off stump and driven to the extra-cover fielder who runs across to his right to stop it partially, the mid-off fielder tidies up to restrict them to one

Mumbai Indians 106/5   KA Pollard 37* (23b 5x4 1x6)

16.1

Morris to Pollard, no run, outside the off stump, quite wide out and he has a bit of a throw of his hands at it, gets an inside edge back to the bowler

16.2

Morris to Pollard, 1 run, slower ball and that's been hit hard, or at least he attempted to hit it hard, the ball rolls away to long-on at a much slower pace than the bat's left the hand and gone high up in the air to where the short mid-wicket would have been!

16.5

Morris to Pollard, FOUR, bouncer to Pollard but unlike Harbhajan he does not miss it, it was hit well through square-leg and rushes away for a four

16.6

Morris to Pollard, no run, good change in length that, pushes it further up to the bat and all he can do is to tap it back to the bowler, the bowler threatens to have a shy at the stumps and Pollard invites him to do just that, ends at that

Mumbai Indians 112/5   KA Pollard 42* (27b 6x4 1x6)

17.6

Bravo to Pollard, FOUR, and now it's drilled down the ground for a four! was a length ball and Pollard throws his bat at it, easily beats the bowler and the deep fielders there for a four

Mumbai Indians 129/6   KA Pollard 46* (28b 7x4 1x6)

18.2

Morris to Pollard, 1 run, that's fuller and wider and drilled to extra-cover for a single, that was hit hard and went quickly to Morkel who misfields, they want to come back for the second but Pollard stops mid-path and sends him back

18.5

Morris to Pollard, 1 run, high full-toss outside the off stump and hit to long-on for a single

Mumbai Indians 134/7   KA Pollard 48* (30b 7x4 1x6)

19.5

Bravo to Pollard, SIX, full-toss and that's been tapped for a six, now that's some serious power, it was almost a yorker-length ball and he needed move away, not too much of a swing of the bat and still hits it straight and long!

19.6

Bravo to Pollard, SIX, and another one! what a shot, what an end to the innings! it was a slower one and he's been smacked over long-on for another maximum to get the Mumbai Indians close to 150

Mumbai Indians 148/9   KA Pollard 60* (32b 7x4 3x6)
