25 April 2009 (20-over match)
  Deccan Chargers innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c †Shah b Bravo 35 20 3 3 175.00
6.5 and he gets Gilchrist with the poorest delivery he has bowled so far, this would have been a wide outside off had Gilchrist not driven at it with all his might, but all he manages is a faint edge through to Pinal Shah 63/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs run out (Bravo/Khan) 58 44 6 2 131.81
15.4 from Khan, oh what an error, Mumbai are right back, Gibb s had stepped out to york himself, and play it towards long-off. This wasn't hit powerfully, so he thought there could be a two here, and he turned around instinctively, but Bravo was incredibly quick to get to the ball, and Venu sent Gibbs back. All too late. In fact Venu had come down half-way, and then changed his mind. Talk about selling your partner down the river 141/5
View dismissal DR Smith b Jayasuriya 35 22 2 2 159.09
12.5 Jaya has got Smith! he slowed it up this time, Smith went for the trademark slog-sweep, and missed, and Jaya was accurate enough to hit. Nonetheless a superb cameo by Smith, who was promoted up the order 124/2
View dismissal RG Sharma c Dhawan b Bravo 3 5 0 0 60.00
14.4 this is superb field placement, it was a nice shot, looking to hit the length ball over extra cover, and he does that, but the sweeper cover is straighter this time, and the ball goes straight down Dhawan's throat. This field placement could have a bit to do with the knwoledge that Rohit plays that shot really well 136/3
View dismissal VVS Laxman c Nayar b Bravo 0 1 0 0 0.00
14.6 a golden duck for Laxman! Not his game this, to make room and hit "ugly" shots. Laxman was always backing away here, Bravo slipped in the bouncer, Laxman, not in position to play the shot (yes Laxman not in position!) and top-edges it towards deep square leg 137/4
View dismissal Y Venugopal Rao b Malinga 9 10 0 0 90.00
17.4 Malinga didn't need Sachin for this one. Yorker, on the leg, fast, Venu has no reply, tries to save the toe, which he does, but the ball takes the pad, and hits the base of leg 156/6
View dismissal DB Ravi Teja lbw b Malinga 9 9 1 0 100.00
19.6 Still no runs off bat in this over, will he bowl a last-over maiden? Will he ever, another yorker, Teja is right in front of this yorker, Dharmasena thinks long and hard and raises his finger. A double-wicket maiden to finish it off. Malinga you beauty 168/9
View dismissal RP Singh c Jayasuriya b Harbhajan Singh 4 4 0 0 100.00
18.4 and Harbhajan fools RP this time, RP looked for a big shot again, stepped out, Harbhajan tossed it up again, RP was clearly early into the shot, and ended up lobbing it to cover 161/7
View dismissal FH Edwards b Malinga 1 3 0 0 33.33
19.2 Slinga to slinga, see you later, Edwards makes room, but a perfect yourler comes out, low trajectory, headed for the base of the middle stump. Even a specialist batsman would have been incredibly proud had he got a single off this one 163/8

  Mumbai Indians innings (target: 169 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c †Gilchrist b Singh 1 8 0 0 12.50
1.4 RP's golden arm works, perhaps the wrong shot from Jayasuriya, a slow start has frustrated him, and he looks to pull a delivery that is not short enough. It bounces a bit on him, too, and gets a top-edge that flies high, and the purple cap fits for RP 4/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar* c Gibbs b Ojha 36 27 3 2 133.33
10.5 and that's smart bowling again, almost a replay of the first ball, Tendulkar steps out, makes room to go over extra, but this is too full, and he ends up hitting it straight to Gibbs at extra cover. And once again, a wicket falls immediately after the time-out, and his timing has looked off right since the break 86/2
View dismissal JP Duminy c Smith b Ojha 47 40 4 2 117.50
14.3 what a big wicket, Ojha has struck thrice in three overs, with a fulltoss this time, Duminy steps down, and lofts it over the leg-side field, it seems like it has gone between deep dquare and midwicket, but Smith runs fast from deep square, very fast, to surprise everybody. Superb catch, looked comfortable in the end 105/4
View dismissal S Dhawan b Ojha 3 7 0 0 42.85
12.3 smart bowling again, this one was slower than the earlier ones, flighted too, Dhawan looks to slog it, and misses it completely, the off stump is out 92/3
View dismissal DJ Bravo lbw b Edwards 21 18 2 0 116.66
18.2 and Edwards has turned it for Deccan, what a big wicket, this was full and straight, Bravo was caught in the crease, looking to get inside it and go leg side, but Edwards was too sharp for that and hit him right in front. Is this the game? 144/6
View dismissal AM Nayar c †Gilchrist b Edwards 10 6 0 1 166.66
16.2 this is a day of the slingers, Edwards goes round the wicket, gets it full, almost a yorker, just outside off, Nayar goes for the big hit, and gets a thin edge through to Gilchrist. Deccan in front now 120/5
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Smith b Singh 20 8 1 2 250.00
19.3 and there RP gets his wicket, that surely has to be the game, it's a fulltoss, and Harbhajan's bat twirls in his hands as he gives it all his power, and the ball flies to long-on 154/7
