Played at Newlands, Cape Town (neutral venue)
18 April 2009 (20-over match)

Thushara to Jayasuriya, OUT, tame dismissal and Hayden makes up for his earlier lapse, it's full and swinging in and Jayasuriya chips it straight to Hayden at midwicket, he takes it very comfortably just off the ground, timed that too well

ST Jayasuriya c Hayden b Thushara 26 (20b 5x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

Mumbai Indians 39/1   SR Tendulkar 12* (15b 1x4)   T Thushara 2.5-0-17-1

Gony to Dhawan, OUT, Dhawan falls to a typical 'backyard cricket slog' , the ball is short and stops on him, he swings too early and the ball clips the top edge and gives Dhoni the easiest of catches running forward from midwicket

S Dhawan c Dhoni b Gony 22 (21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 104.76

Mumbai Indians 82/2   SR Tendulkar 32* (29b 4x4)   MS Gony 2.4-0-22-1

Gony to Duminy, OUT, nice reflexes from the bowler! Duminy attempts a full blooded pull past the bowler but plays too early and the ball spoons off the top half of the bat and goes to Gony's right, he fumbles and takes it at the second attempt

JP Duminy c & b Gony 9 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Mumbai Indians 95/3   SR Tendulkar 36* (33b 4x4)   MS Gony 3.3-0-26-2

Joginder Sharma to Bravo, OUT, another catch off the second attempt and this time it's Hayden, Bravo sizes up for the pull but he fails to pick the slower ball he doesn't get the desired elevation at deep square leg, hayden runs forward, nearly makes a mess of it but recovers to take the catch

DJ Bravo c Hayden b Joginder Sharma 5 (4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Mumbai Indians 102/4   SR Tendulkar 38* (35b 4x4)   Joginder Sharma 3.3-0-22-1

Oram to Nayar, OUT, the slower ball claims him, he chips down the track and Oram cleverly drops it short, he ends up flat batting it straight to Thushara at long-off

AM Nayar c Thushara b Oram 35 (14b 2x4 3x6) SR: 250.00

Mumbai Indians 148/5   SR Tendulkar 48* (43b 5x4)   JDP Oram 3.1-0-21-1

Oram to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Tendulkar squeezes out a yorker down the pitch and his partner darts off, Harbhajan sacrifices his wicket and it's an easy direct hit for Oram

Harbhajan Singh run out 4 (2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Mumbai Indians 157/6   SR Tendulkar 53* (46b 6x4)   JDP Oram 4-0-30-1

Flintoff to Khan, OUT, Zaheer gets a juicy full toss but he only succeeds in hitting it straight to Badrinath at wide long-off

Z Khan c Ashwin b Flintoff 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Mumbai Indians 161/7   SR Tendulkar 55* (48b 6x4)   A Flintoff 3.5-0-40-1
