Pepsi Indian Premier League, 48th match: Kings XI Punjab v Mumbai Indians at Mohali, May 21, 2014
Mumbai Indians won by 7 wickets
21 May 2014 - night match (20-over match)

8.00pm Here we go, then. Kumar Dharmasena and Vineet Kulkarni are the umpires tonight. Kings XI will open with Sehwag and Manan Vohra, and Praveen Kumar will take the new ball for Mumbai Indians.

7.55pm First game of the season in Mohali, which, incidentally, has been an even more batting-friendly venue than the Chinnaswamy Stadium, across all IPL seasons. The average run rate has been 8.31 in Mohali, and 8.25 in Bangalore. Only the Holkar Stadium in Indore (8.56, but only 4 matches) and the Brabourne Stadium (8.54, 14 matches) have been more high-scoring.

7.40pm Virender Sehwag says he enjoys batting in Mohali, and recalls that he once made "180-something" against Pakistan here. He says Sanjay Bangar is a wonderful coach, takes suggestions from senior players and implements them. He has good words for George Bailey too, says he encourages bowlers to follow their own plans.

Sehwag, I guess, was talking about this Test match, in which he scored 173. You'll probably remember the game for that match-saving Akmal-Razzaq partnership.

He also sings a Kishore Kumar song. Not particularly well, but still an aww moment.

"Any word on why Johnson isn't playing?" I guess they're just resting him, Aditya. And Beuran Hendricks took three wickets in their previous match.

Snehil: "The only thing missing in this edition of IPL is a century...Maxwell came close to the landmark three times but failed to capitalize on it....With their first game in Mohali this season,I hope he hits a hundred tonight.. "

Vishnu: "Hope Kings XI bat second so that I can see them batting on TV after my shift ends. Much more fun than reading the commentary on Cricinfo. Sorry for that!" That is devastating news. Our words don't paint beautiful pictures in your heads?

7.30pm It's time for the toss. Tails is the call, and it's tails, which means Rohit Sharma has won the toss. Mumbai Indians will field first. Rohit says it's a good track to bat on, and the ball comes on nicely, and it will stay that way.

Shaun Marsh will play his first game of the season for Kings XI, at the expense of David Miller, who's having a rest. Harbhajan Singh, meanwhile, is ill, and makes way for Praveen Kumar.

7.15pm Hello, everyone. It's Kings XI Punjab against Mumbai Indians, who will have to win this match, and all their remaining games, to stay in contention for a Playoff spot. As you wait for tonight's game to begin, do have a look at the preview, by Devashish Fuloria.

Five teams vie for third and fourth places, and the permutations are too complex for me to explain here. Instead, I'll direct you to this handy guide to all the scenarios, by Shiva Jayaraman.

And for something totally unrelated to tonight's game, or indeed the IPL, here's Scott Oliver, on the joy of shouldered arms (wonder where that expression came from).

Five days left to stake your claim to be at Lord's when India play England this summer. Go for your shots on CricIQ. Now.

0.1

Kumar to Sehwag, FOUR, that's short and wide outside off, and Sehwag steers it past, no, through backward point. Kieron Pollard dived to his right but couldn't cut it off.

0.2

Kumar to Sehwag, SIX, whoa. What a start. This is wide outside off again, and full, and Sehwag swings merrily through the line to send it soaring over extra cover.

0.3

Kumar to Sehwag, no run, this straightened from off stump, and Sehwag checks his shot to push it towards cover

0.4

Kumar to Sehwag, 1 wide, uh oh. Praveen doesn't seem to be in rhythm. This slides down the leg side. No real swing either.

0.4

Kumar to Sehwag, no run, comes in a touch from outside off, just back of a length, Sehwag defends from the crease

0.5

Kumar to Sehwag, no run, he missed out on that. It was short and wide, and he hit it straight to point

0.6

Kumar to Sehwag, no run, length ball, outside off, Sehwag opens his bat face and pushes it towards point

End of over 1 (11 runs) Kings XI Punjab 11/0 (RR: 11.00)

    • V Sehwag 10 (6b 1x4 1x6)
    • M Vohra 0 (0b)
    • P Kumar 1-0-11-0

Santokie now.

1.1

Santokie to Vohra, FOUR, wide and full, and Vohra leans elegantly over that, bends at the front knee, and caresses it through cover

1.2

Santokie to Vohra, 1 run, back of a length, tucked into the leg side

1.3

Santokie to Sehwag, no run, slower ball, outside off, and Sehwag is beaten as he pokes at it

1.4

Santokie to Sehwag, SIX, another slower one, outside off, but Sehwag has seen it early. Waits an age before launching it back over the bowler's head

1.5

Santokie to Sehwag, no run, tries to slog this across the line, hits him on the front pad, outside leg, and bounces away into the off side

1.6

Santokie to Sehwag, 1 run, full and wide, and Sehwag seemed to hit that extremely well, so it was a little strange to watch it go to deep cover on the bounce

End of over 2 (12 runs) Kings XI Punjab 23/0 (RR: 11.50)

    • V Sehwag 17 (10b 1x4 2x6)

    • K Santokie 1-0-12-0
    • P Kumar 1-0-11-0
2.1

Kumar to Sehwag, OUT, oh man. That's such an unfortunate dismissal. The ball comes in off the seam, tucks Sehwag up. He pushes it down the ground, towards mid-on (or so he thinks) and both batsmen set off. The ball stops right next to the bowler, though, after hitting Vohra's foot, and PK only has to run back two yards to knock the bails off

V Sehwag run out 17 (10m 11b 1x4 2x6) SR: 154.54

2.2

Kumar to Vohra, no run, outswinger, outside off. Vohra pokes and misses

Kumar to Vohra, no run, this is another outswinger, wider this time, and Vohra's beaten, trying to steer that with half a bat

2.4

Kumar to Vohra, 1 run, Vohra walks across his stumps, out of his crease, and tucks it off his pads to deep backward square leg

Shaun Marsh, to face his first ball of the season

2.5

Kumar to Marsh, no run, leg-stumpish, length ball, clipped towards midwicket

2.6

Kumar to Marsh, no run, onto the pads again, but a bit of swing away from Marsh, who gets a soft leading edge that drops harmlessly next to him

End of over 3 (1 run) Kings XI Punjab 24/1 (RR: 8.00)

    • SE Marsh 0 (2b)
    • M Vohra 6 (5b 1x4)
    • P Kumar 2-0-12-0
    • K Santokie 1-0-12-0

Rohit: "Shaun Marsh's beard < Kane Richardson's." In response, I can only say this: Kane Richardson's beard < Asanka Gurusinha's < WG Grace's

Bumrah now

3.1

Bumrah to Vohra, no run, angled in, back of a length, outside off, left alone

3.2

Bumrah to Vohra, FOUR, was he trying to pull that? It was short and outside off, and he was probably looking to hit it over midwicket, but it came on a bit quicker than he expected and it goes off the bottom half of his bat, over a leaping mid-off. Lucky boy.

3.3

Bumrah to Vohra, no run, outswinging full toss outside off. Vohra pokes and misses

3.4

Bumrah to Vohra, no run, good short ball, follows Vohra, and he misses as he tries to ramp it over the keeper

End of over 4 (9 runs) Kings XI Punjab 33/1 (RR: 8.25)

4.1

Kumar to Vohra, no run, length ball, outside off, pushed towards cover

PK's wearing a heavy-duty gold chain, by the way

4.2

Kumar to Vohra, no run, this one nips back in, and Vohra is hit on the pad as he tries to flick it. Was falling over a touch. But the ball was probably going over the stumps, which explains Dharmasena's lack of interest when PK appeals

4.3

Kumar to Vohra, no run, short and wide, with a bit of outswing, and Vohra flashes and misses

4.4

Kumar to Vohra, no run, comes down the track, PK pulls his length back a bit, and Vohra defends towards cover

4.5

Kumar to Vohra, no run, back of a length, outside off, 129.2kph, but looked a lot slower, and Vohra waits and waits before defending back down the pitch

4.6

Kumar to Vohra, 1 run, that's short, and it's pulled to deep midwicket from just outside off

End of over 5 (1 run) Kings XI Punjab 34/1 (RR: 6.80)

Ojha to Marsh, no run, Marsh goes across with his front foot, tucks it to square leg

5.6

Ojha to Marsh, SIX, massive! Marsh clears his front leg, gets down on one knee, and slog-sweeps way over deep midwicket

End of over 6 (14 runs) Kings XI Punjab 48/1 (RR: 8.00)

    • SE Marsh 6 (6b 1x6)
    • M Vohra 23 (19b 3x4 1x6)

Gopal to Vohra, 2 runs, tucked towards midwicket off the pads

They've taken the time-out, it looks like

Ganesh: "Never thought I would say this, but MI is already missing Bhajji. He has been surprisingly good this season. Kings looking good for 200 again. "

7.1

Ojha to Vohra, no run, tossed up a bit, and Vohra defends off the front foot

7.2

Ojha to Vohra, 1 run, this one's quite slow, too, and Vohra goes back to clip it off his hips towards square leg

7.3

Ojha to Marsh, 1 run, onto Marsh's pads, and it's flicked to deep backward square

7.4

Ojha to Vohra, 1 wide, fired down the leg side, and the umpire's arms shoot out even as Aditya Tare goes up in a loud appeal for caught behind

8.1

Gopal to Vohra, no run, slides down leg, with the angle, hits Vohra on the pads

8.2

Gopal to Vohra, 1 run, ooh, what's this? Vohra hits that hard, back down the ground, and it smashes into the stumps at the bowler's end. Dharmasena goes up to the third umpire, but it didn't look like Shreyas got a touch with his fingers as he dived. It passes quite close to the forefinger of his right hand, but there's too much doubt, and it's given not out.

8.3

Gopal to Marsh, FOUR, this is flat and short, and there's only one place that's going. Marsh rocks back and pulls it powerfully in front of deep midwicket

8.4

Gopal to Marsh, 2 runs, slower, fuller, and on the pads. Marsh flicks it towards deep square leg

8.5

Gopal to Marsh, SIX, down the pitch, and he gets into the perfect position to loft that high and straight

8.6

Gopal to Marsh, 1 run, drops a touch short again, but this hurries towards Marsh, doesn't give him time for the pull that he's shaping for. He knocks it down instead to long-on

End of over 9 (14 runs) Kings XI Punjab 85/1 (RR: 9.44)

Santokie returns

9.1

Santokie to Marsh, 2 runs, angles this into Marsh's pads, and he flicks it between deep midwicket and long-on

9.2

Santokie to Marsh, OUT, he's picked him out! Slower ball, and Marsh hit it effortlessly, a touch too effortlessly, perhaps, straight to Pollard at long-on. He might not have picked that change of pace

SE Marsh c Pollard b Santokie 30 (31m 17b 2x4 2x6) SR: 176.47

Maxwell walks in

9.3

Santokie to Vohra, no run, slower ball, clipped towards midwicket

9.4

Santokie to Vohra, 1 run, another slower ball, and Vohra shovels this towards long-on

9.5

Santokie to Maxwell, no run, slower ball again, wide outside off, and Maxwell pushes it to point

9.6

Santokie to Maxwell, 2 runs, on the pads this time, and Maxwell opens up a touch to push it to long-on with a straight bat

Gopal to Vohra, no run, fires this down the leg side

10.2

10.3

Gopal to Vohra, no run, that's a shocking delivery, flat and short and heading way down the leg side. Vohra misses out on it, hits it straight to short fine leg

10.4

Gopal to Vohra, OUT, bowled 'im! That's a little bit slower, and Vohra slogs across the line and misses. Shreyas lets out a yell as it crashes into the top of middle

M Vohra b Gopal 36 (47m 34b 4x4 1x6) SR: 105.88

Bailey.

10.5

Gopal to Bailey, 1 run, did that stop on him? It was the googly, and Bailey seemed surprised by that, pops it up towards mid-off, but it drops short of him

10.6

Gopal to Maxwell, OUT, Mohali goes silent! slow, loopy wrong-un, and Maxwell probably picked it but played too early at it, and across it. Gets a thickish leading edge that loops straight back to the bowler.

GJ Maxwell c & b Gopal 2 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

End of over 11 (3 runs) Kings XI Punjab 93/4 (RR: 8.45)

11.4

Ojha to Saha, 1 leg bye, angles down the leg side once more, and Saha tickles it off his pads, very fine. Short fine leg runs across to cut it off

11.5

Ojha to Bailey, no run, why are they appealing for this? It's angled well down the leg side, and Bailey is probably playing for turn. He gets an inside edge onto the front pad

11.6

Ojha to Bailey, no run, goes back to cut, but doesn't have either the time or the room. Chops it down into the off side instead

End of over 12 (4 runs) Kings XI Punjab 97/4 (RR: 8.08)

12.5

Gopal to Bailey, 1 run, a touch short, and he rocks back to cut to the sweeper

12.6

14.3

Bumrah to Bailey, 1 run, fuller, angled towards the pads, pushed to long-on

14.4

Bumrah to Saha, OUT, direct hit! Saha swings hard at this full ball, but doesn't time it. Rayudu ran in from mid-on and sent in a flat, powerful throw that hit the base of the stumps at the bowler's end with Saha well short of the crease

Malav: "Who would've thought Punjab could go 40 balls without a boundary this season!?" Who, indeed. This has been some comeback from Mumbai. PK comes back now, around the wicket to Patel.

16.1

Kumar to Patel, OUT, whoops. Soft dismissal? That's a full toss, and Patel has popped that straight to cover. They're checking for height, and it's......... just under the waist. That's out.

AR Patel c Sharma b Kumar 6 (9m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

One former Mumbai Indian replaces another. Here's Rishi Dhawan now.

Bumrah to Dhawan, 1 run, wide of the crease, angled in towards the top of off stump, Rishi opens his face and pushes it behind point

Andrew: "No matter how many boundaries you can hit, a dot ball percentage of 51% is just not good enough. You have to have a backup plan when plan A doesn't work out."

17.3

Bumrah to Bailey, 2 runs, slower ball, outside off, swept (?) to long-on

17.4

43 for 4 in the last eight overs

18.1

Santokie to Bailey, 2 runs, that's a terrible delivery. Drags this short and down the leg side, and Tare can't collect cleanly

18.2

Santokie to Bailey, no run, slower ball, and Bailey inside-edges this attempted cover drive onto his pads. He's struggling to time the ball

18.3

Santokie to Bailey, 1 run, slower ball again, chipped to long-off.

18.4

Santokie to Dhawan, FOUR, that is really well played. Made it looked much simpler than it must have been. That was full and wide of off stump, and he's walked across and lapped it over the stumps and well out of range of short fine leg

18.5

Santokie to Dhawan, 1 run, couple of steps down the pitch, pushes this length ball down to long-off

18.6

Santokie to Bailey, SIX, slower ball again, but it's short, and Bailey has all the time in the world to go deep in his crease and pull that over square leg

End of over 19 (14 runs) Kings XI Punjab 147/6 (RR: 7.73)

    • GJ Bailey 33 (28b 2x4 1x6)
    • R Dhawan 12 (7b 2x4)
    • K Santokie 4-0-40-1
    • JJ Bumrah 3-0-22-0
19.1

Bumrah to Dhawan, 1 run, slower ball, it ends up as a full toss outside off, and Rishi slaps it to the sweeper

19.2

Bumrah to Bailey, SIX, that's another full-toss, and Bailey didn't seem to time it at all, but it sails over the bowler's head and comfortably clears the boundary.

19.3

Bumrah to Bailey, OUT, another slower ball, outside off, and that bottom-handed shovel-sweep goes high in the air and drops into Rayudu's hands at deep midwicket

GJ Bailey c Rayudu b Bumrah 39 (41m 30b 2x4 2x6) SR: 130.00

19.4

Bumrah to Dhawan, 1 run, low full-toss on the stumps, pushed to cover. The throw went to the keeper's end, where the batsman was comfortably home

What can Beuran Hendricks do here?

19.5

Bumrah to Hendricks, OUT, bowled! that's another slower ball, which crashes into the stumps as Hendricks takes a big back-and-across step and swings across the line.

BE Hendricks b Bumrah 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Last ball. Shivam Sharma to face.

19.6

Bumrah to Shivam Sharma, 1 run, into the blockhole, and it's driven to mid-off

Kings XI made 90 in the first 10 overs and only 66 in the last 10. Mumbai's bowlers realised this wasn't as good a pitch to bat on as everyone had initially thought. Shreyas Gopal profited from slowing down his deliveries, while Bumrah and Santokie used their change of pace pretty well. Mumbai beat Kings XI the last time these two sides met. Can they do the double? Wait and watch.

End of over 20 (9 runs) Kings XI Punjab 156/8

    • Shivam Sharma 1 (1b)
    • R Dhawan 14 (9b 2x4)
    • JJ Bumrah 4-0-31-2
    • K Santokie 4-0-40-1
