Mumbai Indians 9/2   A Nehra 1-0-8-0

4.1

Nehra to Shah, 1 run, dropped by Sangwan, he's taking tips from the Kolkata fielders here, skied it to mid-on, a hapless shot, vain attempt to clear the in-field and mistimed it, Sangwan reached to his right and spilled it, fearing a possible collision with Gambhir at mid-off

4.2

Nehra to Tendulkar, FOUR, punished, short and wide, makes room and slashes it hard wide of point for a boundary, Sangwan's shown scratching his head

4.3

Nehra to Tendulkar, no run, nipped back in, rapped high on the pads as he tried to whip it past midwicket,, stifled appeal for caught-behind

16.1

Mumbai Indians 91/6   A Nehra 3-0-18-1

18.1

Nehra to Rahane, FOUR, poor ball, low full toss outside off, makes room and steers that behind point to beat third man, important runs these

18.2

Nehra to Rahane, 1 run, slower one on middle and leg, dropped short of the bowler and sets off for a single

18.3

Nehra to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, dropped, Karthik drops a dolly, slipped through his gloves, skied at while looking for a swipe over long-on, took ages to come down but the keeper didn't have to move much, looked good to pouch it but faltered at just the last moment

18.4

Nehra to Rahane, 1 no ball, Delhi have let their guard down here, oversteps and hurls it wide, freehit time

18.4

Nehra to Rahane, 1 run, thick edge and spilled again by Karthik as he dives to his right, wouldn't have mattered but Nehra makes it a point to hurl a series of abuses at Karthik, reminds me of his outburst against Dhoni when he had dropped Afridi once

18.5

Nehra to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, i'll do it myself he says, and follows that up with some more abuse, yorker on the off stump and Harbhajan is late in bringing down his bat, the stumps are clattered and the bowler can breathe easy

Harbhajan Singh b Nehra 10 (6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 166.66

18.6

Nehra to Raje, 1 run, short of a good length outside off, goes for the pull, gets a thick edge wide of point for a single
