Indian Premier League - 35th match

Delhi Daredevils v Mumbai Indians

Delhi Daredevils won by 7 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

Just moments away from the start now. We'll be bombarded with those sponsor plugs anyway, so lets digress for a bit. The Delhi players are heading out, and the Mumbai openers gradually follow. Ronchi will take strike. Five matches with a highest of 13. Tendulkar's not opening folks. Duminy has received a promotion for all his hardwork. All set!

The comments are just getting better - Simon: "As one of my friend's said will the singles be sponsored by matrimonial sites and be referred to as Shaadi or Jeevansaathi. for ex. good fielding has kept that one down to a Shaadi"

We've just been told there is a ten-minute delay because of some light rain. Hold fire, it didn't look too ominous and it's probably stopped by now.

Siddharth: " am so sick of "Citi Moments of success" and "DLF maximums". Soon you'll find commentators saying Alonso is DLF seconds ahead of Hamilton. Man U beat Fulham DLF-2. Today is 2 days after the DLF'th of May! If you post this message, it would most certainly be a Citi moment of success for me! God save cricket!" There you go, celebrate the moment, call your friends on Vodafone and tell them all about it.

Belford again, he's taken my joke a little too seriously - "Not a commentator but I am doing a sports show for my college on cricket and the IPL. Now your going to say I am promoting the IPL in my college." Relax bro.

Belford: "Finally the Mumbai Indians camp have heard my cry to include Luke Ronchi. I am sure he will play a knock with many DLF's." You're one of those TV commentators, I think.

There's no Sehwag. Gambhir is still leading. Mumbai have opted to bat. Sanath Jayasuriya has been left out, and in comes Luke Ronchi. Interesting change. Delhi have retained the same team. Just check for the XI's above. Leaving out Jayasuriya may have been a difficult decision, but the opening pair had only added 48 for the first wicket in their last four outings.

The pitch looks encouraging for batting, and with the short boundaries, the experts believe we'll see many runs scored. The toss is just a few moments away, will Sehwag play?

Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of a crucial game for Mumbai Indians as they take on the in-form Delhi Daredevils in East London. Mumbai threw it away against Deccan Chargers, faltering badly in pursuit of a gettable target. They are now placed seventh, and are in dire need of a win to entertain any hopes of making it to the top four.

PR Shah    5* (11b)      DP Nannes    2-0-3-1

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

5.6

Sangwan to Tendulkar, OUT, run out, short of a good length on middle, dropped it on the pitch, but it bounced just wide of the stumps, sets off for a single, is sent back and the keeper throws down the stumps, and there's an appeal. Replays indicate Tendulkar was just short while trying to make it back. Karthik's done well, but that was an impossible run. Tendulkar probably didn't see where the ball went, and had run too far before changing his mind. Massive blow.

SR Tendulkar run out 15 (14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

Rajat Bhatia to bowl

Derek: "For the life of me where is Mohamed Ashraful. If ever there was batsman suited to 20/20 its the Bangladeshi Captain. Why he endless fixation with run-of-the-mill Aussie and South African state players when you have explosive players like Ash available?"

8.1

Mishra to Bravo, 1 wide

8.1

Bhatia to Bravo, no run, slower one, a legcutter, covers it nicely and defends it back to the bowler

9.6

Bhatia to Bravo, 1 run, slower one bowled short of a length outside off, guided down to third man and gets a much needed break

The scorecard tells the story. Two run-outs, one guy out to a genuinely good delivery and the other playing an atrocious shot. Delhi are on top, and Mumbai are left staring at the possibility of a paltry score here. Just two boundaries in ten overs.

Page 2 time - Sriram Veera finds that while the pundits may be crying themselves hoarse over the strategy break, the ordinary South African spectator doesn't mind it too much.

Tishani Doshi is fed up of the monotony and wishes for a Slapgate or two to liven up the second half of the tournament.

12.2

Bhatia to Bravo, FOUR, some needed oomph now from Bravo, using the extra width to drive the ball on the rise over extra cover for four, splitting two fielders in the deep

Bhatia to Bravo, 1 bye, smart change-up delivery, much straighter and on a length and it beats the bat and the wicketkeeper, running down toward short fine leg

Nannes to Rahane, FOUR, fortunate, and they'll take it, short on the off, went for a mighty pull, got a thick edge over the keeper's head to the third-man boundary

17.3

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

A hapless batting display from Mumbai. The stand between Bravo and Nayar was the only saving grace, but barring the two, there was little resistance from the rest. Delhi did concede a few runs towards the end, and their batsmen will hope those slip-ups don't prove decisive in the outcome. Mumbai failed to chase 119 against Punjab, and will now have to inflict a similar fate on a formidable opposition to retain hopes of staying in the competition. Join us in a bit for the run-chase

End of over 20 (2 runs) Mumbai Indians 116/10
     R Bhatia    4-0-15-3
SL Malinga    0* (0b)      A Nehra    4-0-27-2
