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)

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

Mumbai Indians 4/1   AP Tare 0* (0b)   MM Sharma 0.4-0-4-1

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

Mumbai Indians 8/2   KD Karthik 4* (2b 1x4)   JA Morkel 0.1-0-0-1

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

Mumbai Indians 16/3   KD Karthik 8* (10b 2x4)   JA Morkel 1.2-0-1-2

Morris to Karthik, OUT, gone, he's played on, Morris smiles, turns around and salutes towards the dugout, was a a pitched up delivery, angled in slightly, DK went for the drive, thick inside edge did the rest

KD Karthik b Morris 21 (45m 26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 80.76

Mumbai Indians 52/4   AT Rayudu 22* (21b 3x4)   CH Morris 1.3-0-7-1

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

Mumbai Indians 100/5   KA Pollard 32* (19b 4x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 1.1-0-6-1

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

Mumbai Indians 125/6   KA Pollard 42* (27b 6x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 2.5-0-25-2

Morris to Dhawan, 2 runs, OUT, and now run-out, Pollard wanted to get back on strike but Dhawan gets run-out in the process, was hit to the leg side and they take a single, the throw is a poor one and beats Dhoni, but the fielder backing up is alert enough to throw it down at the non-striker's end

R Dhawan run out 3 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Mumbai Indians 133/7   KA Pollard 47* (29b 7x4 1x6)   CH Morris 3.4-0-23-1

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

Mumbai Indians 135/8   KA Pollard 48* (30b 7x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 3.1-0-29-3

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

Mumbai Indians 135/9   KA Pollard 48* (30b 7x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 3.3-0-29-4
