Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 23 runs

0.1

Sharma to Smith, no run, short of length on the middle-stump line, tapped to square-leg and Tare wanted a single, but sent back by the batsman, the throw comes in from Jadeja but misses the stumps

0.2

Sharma to Smith, no run, on a good length and on the off stump, pushes it into the covers

0.3

Sharma to Smith, FOUR, and this one is cracked through the point area for a four, was on a length yet again and just outside the off stump, he hits it through the line and gets it in the gap on the off side

0.4

Sharma to Smith, OUT, and he's gone now, a four and a wicket! this is a good ball this, it was on the off stump and jags back into the batsman, bit of cut from the wicket and hits him plumb in front of the stumps, was looking to defend at it

DR Smith lbw b Sharma 4 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

0.5

Sharma to Karthik, no run, almost walks out of the crease and defends it back to the bowler

0.6

Sharma to Karthik, FOUR, edged for a four! the slip was wide almost at the second slip slot and that's a genuine edge that's gone between him and the keeper, who's up to the stumps, rushes away for a four!

Mumbai Indians 8/1   MM Sharma 1-0-8-1

2.1

Sharma to Sharma, 1 run, shorter in length and outside the off stump, waits on it before late-steering it through to third-man for a single

2.2

Sharma to Karthik, no run, ooh, inside edge saves him! it was a big swinger back into the batsman, gets something on it probably and hits his pads, replays suggest could have been bat hitting pad. Probably the height saves him.

2.3

Sharma to Karthik, no run, fuller on the middle stump and driven to mid-on, hit well but straight to the fielder

2.4

Sharma to Karthik, no run, on a good length and outside the off stump, taps it to the off side, to the fielder

2.5

Sharma to Karthik, no run, shorter in length yet again and movement away, just that slight one but enough to beat the outside edge of the bat, again

2.6

Sharma to Karthik, FOUR, shot, punchy one at that, short of length outside the off stump and tapped through the empty extra-cover region for a four

Mumbai Indians 16/2   MM Sharma 2-0-13-1

4.1

Sharma to Karthik, FOUR, what a shot, poor fielding but that's an excellent piece of timing from Karthik, much like in the previous over, he gets a length ball outside the off stump, punches it through extra-cover, beats two fielders including a diving Vijay who gets some hand on it but still goes through!

4.2

Sharma to Karthik, no run, shorter in length and brings it closer to the stumps this one and he defends it back to the bowler

4.3

Sharma to Karthik, no run, fullish in length and drives it to the covers, straight to the fielder

4.4

Sharma to Karthik, 1 run, edged and that's a leading one that's gone through the region around the fourth slip, was a cross-seam delivery that, no-one in the slips this time and it's gone to third-man

4.5

Sharma to Rayudu, 1 run, outside the off stump, and on a good length, steered down to third-man for a single

4.6

Sharma to Karthik, 1 run, wide, short and gives it his full bat swing there, unfortunately for him, cannot find the gap and it's gone to the diving point fielder, fielded well by Bravo but they go through for a single

Mumbai Indians 25/3   MM Sharma 3-0-20-1

6.1

Sharma to Karthik, 1 run, short of length and he pulls it away to deep square-leg for a single

6.2

Sharma to Rayudu, no run, slower one and on a length, he was almost through with the initial bit of his shot before having to wait on it and try and defend at it, beats the outside edge of the bat

6.3

Sharma to Rayudu, FOUR, edged for a four! it was a quicker one this, 135.6 km/hr, he throws his bat at it and takes the edge of the bat, through the non-existent slips and for a four

6.4

Sharma to Rayudu, no run, shorter in length and the keeper's back now, was looking to steer it down to third-man but misses

6.5

Sharma to Rayudu, 1 run, takes a step down the track and taps it to the off side, the bowler rushes quickly to his left and has a quick pick-up and shy at the non-striker's end, DK's outside his crease but misses the stumps and they go for an overthrow

6.6

Sharma to Karthik, no run, on a good length and pushes it to the point fielder

Mumbai Indians 40/3   MM Sharma 4-0-26-1
