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)
1.1

Morkel to Tare, OUT, bowled him, what's happening here, it was very full on the middle-stump and he was looking to flicking that away to the leg-side, looked akin to that lazy elegance that Rohit Sharma shows while playing his flicks, except there was nothing elegant about missing the ball and seeing the stump flat on the ground, what a start for Chennai...

AP Tare b Morkel 0 (7m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

1.2

Morkel to Sharma, no run, shorter in length and outside the off stump, bit of nip away and the misses the outside edge through to the keeper

1.3

Morkel to Sharma, 1 run, on the middle-stump and angling into the batsman, tucked away for a single to open his account

1.4

Morkel to Karthik, no run, shorter in length and this seams back into the bowler, he was looking to play it to the leg side but misses, hits his pad and it was going down

1.5

Morkel to Karthik, no run, shoulders arms this time, was outside the off stump and on a length, trusts the bounce on that one

1.6

Morkel to Karthik, 2 leg byes, chips down the track yet again and again this over he gets beaten by the nip on that one, jags back into the batsman and gets some pad on it through to fine-leg for a couple

Mumbai Indians 11/2   JA Morkel 1-0-1-1
3.1

Morkel to Sharma, no run, on a good length and middle-stump line from Morkel and he defends it back to the bowler

3.2

Morkel to Sharma, OUT, gone, gone, caught-and-bowled and that's number three for Chennai! short of length and on the middle stump line, he was looking to punch it back, the ball held back a little and it goes back low to Morkel who takes a straight-forward chance to his right, three down without too much on the board

RG Sharma c & b Morkel 2 (10m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

3.3

Morkel to Rayudu, 1 run, fuller on the off stump line and drives it to the off side, and off for a single

3.4

Morkel to Karthik, 1 run, shorter in length and tucked away to fine-leg for a single

3.5

Morkel to Rayudu, no run, shortens his length now and he looks to defend it off the back foot to the off side, the fielders converge on it and prevent any runs

3.6

Morkel to Rayudu, no run, shortens the length yet again and he's left with no option but to push it to the point fielder

Mumbai Indians 18/3   JA Morkel 2-0-3-2
5.1

Morkel to Karthik, no run, shorter in length yet again and he unleashes the cut, there's some bounce on that one and hit straight to the cover fielder

5.2

Morkel to Karthik, 1 run, shorter in length and pushed through to fine-leg for a single

5.3

Morkel to Rayudu, FOUR, shot that, was slightly fuller than what he's been bowling so far, he goes over the bowler's head, smacked back to the fence

5.4

Morkel to Rayudu, no run, immediately gets it back to the good length and with a bit of an angle back into the batsman, gets his bat down in time and to the leg side

5.5

Morkel to Rayudu, FOUR, shortens his length and on the middle stump line, you don't do that when you have so many players on the off side, he gets a wristy flick going for him and easily beats the square-leg fielder through to the fence for a four

5.6

Morkel to Rayudu, no run, on the leg-stump line, cramping the batsman up with it, length ball too and tucked away to short mid-wicket

Mumbai Indians 34/3   JA Morkel 3-0-12-2
