Indian Premier League, Final: Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians at Kolkata, May 26, 2013
Mumbai Indians won by 23 runs
26 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Bravo to Rayudu, 1 run, under-edged for a single, that was a shorter delivery, one of the variety of deliveries he bowls and tried to play it down, gets an edge through to third-man


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


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


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


Bravo to Rayudu, 1 run, slower one but what's different about it is that it's on his pads, easily flicked away but not in the gap and they get only one


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

Mumbai Indians 90/4   DJ Bravo 1-0-6-0

Bravo to Rayudu, OUT, bowled him, middle-stump sent packing! very full and very straight, this was the first ball after the time-out, he was looking to go down and drive it through the covers, sneaks through the bottom of his bat and slaps the middle stump low down

AT Rayudu b Bravo 37 (56m 36b 4x4 0x6) SR: 102.77


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, shorter in length and slower too, was outside the off stump, and plays it down and through the covers for a single


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!


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


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


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   DJ Bravo 2-0-12-1

Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, 1 wide, slows it down drastically but that's gone down the leg-side this time and it's a wide


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, edged through the slips for a four, it was a very full delivery and he gets some bat at it, and it eludes Dhoni to his right


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, no run, shorter in length and wants to cut it away, was short enough too but quicker and beats the outside edge


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, edged again and for a four too! it was an inside edge this time, he was looking to swing it away by stepping back, gets something on his bat and beats Dhoni to his left this time


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, what a shot, that's timed superbly from Harbhajan, it was fuller, outside the off stump and he jabs his bat down in time and gets it through point for a four...Dhoni runs across to have a word with his bowler while Tendulkar stands up and applauds the shot


Bravo to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, and now he's gone, 'four and out' has happened a lot tonight, and it happens again, it was fuller yet again and he slices it straight to deep cover where Hussey takes a straight-forward catch to send back Harbhajan

Harbhajan Singh c Hussey b Bravo 14 (14m 8b 3x4 0x6) SR: 175.00


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   DJ Bravo 3-0-29-2

Bravo to Johnson, OUT, edged and taken! he was looking to flick it away it but the ball does not angle back into the batsman, straightens slightly and the edge is taken well by Dhoni

MG Johnson c †Dhoni b Bravo 1 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00


Bravo to Malinga, no run, bouncer that and Malinga was looking to give himself room and crack it over the covers, beats him and it goes through to the keeper, umpire gives it one for the over but it's not quite over shoulder height!


Bravo to Malinga, OUT, and another one bites the dust, four for Bravo, was shorter in length, the batsman was looking to run it through to third-man but gets only an edge through to the keeper

SL Malinga c †Dhoni b Bravo 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Bravo to Ojha, 1 run, edged to the wide slip and almost carries but this time Pollard's rushed across for a very quick single to finally get strike


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!


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   DJ Bravo 4-0-42-4
