View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† b Raje 25 29 2 1 86.20
9.4 bowled em! Raje holds his nerve and pitches it up on off stump, Gilchrist doesn't move his feet as he swings across the line and off stump is pegged back 62/3
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Tendulkar b Kulkarni 0 5 0 0 0.00
1.4 edged and gone! Gibbs pays the price for a poor drive away from the body, Kulkarni pitches it wide but it wasn't full enough for the drive and Gibbs gives Tendulkar at slip some regulation catching practice ... just wasn't to the pitch of the ball and went fishing 8/1
View dismissal TL Suman c †Shah b Bravo 20 13 1 2 153.84
5.3 got em! Suman backs away to try and hit the ball over cover but the ball was a touch too short for that shot and the extra bounce draws a thick outside edge to Shah 37/2
View dismissal RG Sharma c Bravo b Malinga 38 36 2 1 105.55
17.1 now there's a theatrical catch from Bravo in the deep! Malinga pitches on a length, Rohit clears the front leg and swings it away, its another mishit over midwicket and Bravo runs in from long-on and dives forward to take the catch ... now he didn't need to dive but the showman that Bravo is, he flung himself up at the last second to get the crowd cheering 118/5
View dismissal DR Smith b Jayasuriya 16 12 1 1 133.33
12.6 timber! Smith just sees the shorter length and backs away to pull it over midwicket but he does not connect at all and the ball thuds into middle stump 85/4
View dismissal Y Venugopal Rao run out (Bravo/†Shah) 28 17 2 1 164.70
19.1 from Malinga, put that down to smart work from the wicketkeeper! Its another gem of a yorker on the stumps, swung away with an inside edge past midwicket, Rao runs the first hard and then dives as he comes back on the second, Shah has to extend the hand to his right after he collects and knocks the stumps over and after a couple replays its ruled that Rao is out because his bat was in the air even though it was over the line ... really well collected by Shah, it wasn't an accurate throw back from Bravo in the deep 137/6

View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Harris b Singh 5 7 1 0 71.42
1.4 oh well held Harris! Jayasuriya comes down and RP sees him, holding back the length and the result is a slash up and over gully and then out of nowhere comes Harris from third man, covering good ground and diving forward toward his right to hold a stunner 7/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar* b Singh 2 4 0 0 50.00
1.5 oh lovely stuff! RP gets two in two, pitching the ball up and getting some swing back in to Tendulkar, whose feet go nowhere as he tries to get smart and turn the ball off his stumps but the result is a thin inside edge that disturbs the furniture 7/2
View dismissal PR Shah c Smith b Suman 29 19 3 2 152.63
8.5 Shah's fun ends with a slog to one tossed up slower outside off stump, he reaches out and drags it up in the air, from well outside off, and picks out Smith at wide long-on 60/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Gilchrist b Sharma 52 48 7 0 108.33
17.1 and he's got it! Rohit Sharma gets three in three! He fires down the leg stumps, no air whatsoever, Duminy moves back and tries to play it over square leg but gets a thin inside edge which Gilchrist, smartly anticipating, holds onto as he moves across 108/7
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Harris b Suman 13 16 0 0 81.25
14.1 no, it works! Suman keeps it full and straight and flat and Bravo gets too underneath it as he looks to go straight for six but instead slices it way up in the air, Harris runs across to his right at long-off, takes it, and regains balance after a wobble 97/4
View dismissal AM Nayar b Sharma 1 4 0 0 25.00
15.5 bowled him, and Mumbai are losing the plot! Rohit keeps it flat on middle and leg, Nayar moves across to sweep and misses it, the ball doesn't turn that much and hits leg stump 103/5
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh b Sharma 0 1 0 0 0.00
15.6 another one bites the dust! Rohit tosses it just a tad short outside off, Harbhajan plays a cheeky sweep to try and beat short fine leg but bottom-edges onto the stumps 103/6
View dismissal SS Tiwary st †Gilchrist b Sharma 3 5 0 0 60.00
17.3 simple stumping! Rohit proposes, Tiwary accepts, but he's a mile away from the ball as it breaks away from the stumps and an ecstatic Gilchrist takes care of the rest 109/8
