Indian Premier League, 50th match: Delhi Daredevils v Mumbai Indians at Delhi, May 24, 2008
Delhi Daredevils won by 5 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)
24 May 2008 - night match (20-over match)

Jayasuriya and Tendulkar walk out. McGrath against these two should be fascinating. Mumbai should be vary in the first few overs. Brett Geeves is in for Delhi. One slip in place

Toss (7.43): The news from the middle is that Delhi have won the toss and will bowl first. Sachin Tendulkar said at the toss he would have fielded first as well. Teams
Delhi Daredevils: 1 Gautam Gambhir, 2 Virender Sehwag (capt), 3 Shikhar Dhawan, 4 Manoj Tiwary, 5 Brett Geeves, 6 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 7 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 8 Farveez Maharoof, 9 Amit Mishra, 10 Vijaykumar Yomahesh, 11 Glenn McGrath.

Mumbai Indians: 1 Sachin Tendulkar, 2 Sanath Jayasuriya, 3 Robin Utahppa, 4 Dwayne Smith, 5 Abhishek Nayar, 6 Shaun Pollock, 7 Pinal Shah, 8 Siddharth Chitnis, 9 Dhaval Kulkarni, 10 Andre Nel, 11 Ashish Nehra.

7.35: Let's take a look at what these two teams need to do today. A defeat will send Delhi hurtling out of the tournament, but a victory for them will suddenly put the pressure back on Mumbai, who will then need to win both their remaining matches to make it to the semi-finals. A win for Mumbai today will make things much easier for them. Expect the Chennai camp to keep an eye on this one. If Delhi lose, Chennai got through to the semis.

7.25: 'allo' allo and welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of the crucial match between Delhi Daredevils and Mumbai Indians. The IPL is 50 games old with this one by the way. Time for introductions - I'm Kanishkaa Balachandran, your commentator, Raymond George takes over the scoring.

Before I go any further, here's an update on the weather. For all you Delhi fans especially, I have some good news! The rain has stayed away and we understand the weather is fine and clear. The previous game at the Kotla was washed out and it doesn't look like we will get another damp squib today.

We're not too far from the toss. As I write, Chennai Super Kings have just gone down by ten runs in a high-scorer against Rajasthan Royals. Their defeat now keeps the two remaining semi-final positions up for grabs. It's a contest between Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai for those two spots. Much fun. This game is a virtual semi-final for Delhi.

Mahesh to Uthappa, 1 run, OUT, Dropped: He makes room and tries to club this one over midwicket, Sehwag drops a sitter at midwicket and that allows a single, Nel dashes out for a second run but Uthappa isn't interested

A Nel run out 0 (0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

A welcome return to form for Uthappa and his unbeaten 46 has propped Mumbai to a very competitive score. Delhi pulled things back in the middle overs but Uthappa made sure Delhi posted an above par score. Do join us shortly for the chase.
