Indian Premier League - 45th match

Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals won by 2 runs


Patel to Bravo, OUT, an atrocious shot, bowled it short, Bravo was tempted, looking to pull it over midwicket, it swung away and he ended up miscuing it with a sliced bat high on the leg side, Munaf, and two others converged, but it was finally the bowler himself who clasped it with the others jostling for a chance as well. Awkward, but all's well that ends well

DJ Bravo c & b Patel 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Mumbai Indians 9/1   YV Takawale 8* (6b 1x4)   MM Patel 0.3-0-1-1


Warne to Rahane, OUT, flighted it, landed slightly short on leg stump, he got forward and tried to whip it through the leg side, the ball spun away to take the top edge and Raut at mid-on took a straightforward catch

AM Rahane c Raut b Warne 3 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Mumbai Indians 23/2   YV Takawale 18* (20b 2x4)   SK Warne 1-0-3-1


Trivedi to Takawale, OUT, edged and gone, Rajasthan are piling on the pressure here, slower one there, bowled short on the off, got some good bounce there, caught Takawale on the glove as he tried to keep it down off the back foot, lobbed up towards the keeper Ojha who dived forward to take a sharp chance

YV Takawale c †Ojha b Trivedi 18 (22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Mumbai Indians 23/3   ST Jayasuriya 0* (0b)   SK Trivedi 1.2-0-4-1


Warne to Jayasuriya, OUT, Warne does the trick, Rajasthan were testing his patience, bowled it slightly quicker on leg stump, tried to clear midwicket there but went off the bottom of the bat, was too early into the shot, and Yusuf at midwicket, right at the edge of the circle, rushed in to dive forward and take it inches from the ground

ST Jayasuriya c Pathan b Warne 16 (21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 76.19

Mumbai Indians 56/4   SR Tendulkar 10* (15b)   SK Warne 2.1-0-7-2


Trivedi to Duminy, OUT, he's dragged it on, what a timely blow! Short of a good length on the off, a hint of inward movement, tried to dab it down to third man, got an inside edge straight onto the stumps

JP Duminy b Trivedi 4 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Mumbai Indians 76/5   SR Tendulkar 24* (22b 1x4 1x6)   SK Trivedi 3.1-0-15-2


Warne to Tendulkar, OUT, he's got him! Is that the decisive blow?? The legspinner, bowled flat on middle and turned just a hint, Tendulkar got way across the line to sweep it behind square, missed and was rapped on the pads, Warne went up immediately and the umpire didn't take long to raise his finger, looked pretty adjacent

SR Tendulkar lbw b Warne 40 (30b 4x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

Mumbai Indians 103/6   AM Nayar 6* (6b)   SK Warne 3.3-0-20-3


Botha to Nayar, OUT, run out, was yorked on leg stump, tried to scamper a single after digging it out, didn't realise the ball was lying just short of the keeper, Ojha picks it up and clips the bails to find Nayar short

AM Nayar run out 35 (18b 4x4 1x6) SR: 194.44

Mumbai Indians 140/7   Harbhajan Singh 6* (7b)   J Botha 3.4-0-30-0


Patel to Kulkarni, OUT, yorker on middle, trapped in front, tries to dig it out in the leg side, is rapped on the pads and the umpire raises his finger, struck on the back foot and was plumb, would have hit middle and leg

DS Kulkarni lbw b Patel 1 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Mumbai Indians 142/8   Harbhajan Singh 6* (7b)   MM Patel 3.2-0-21-2


Patel to Nanda, OUT, run out, Mumbai are committing suicide here, full toss outside off, tries to swing it away, gets a leading edge towards mid-off, tries to run through to complete a single, Yusuf Pathan at mid-off collects and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end to find Nanda well short

Mumbai Indians 143/10   Harbhajan Singh 7* (8b)   MM Patel 3.5-0-22-2
