Indian Premier League, 47th match: Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians at Port Elizabeth, May 16, 2009
Chennai Super Kings won by 7 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)
Played at St George's Park, Port Elizabeth (neutral venue)
16 May 2009 (20-over match)

12.30 local Lets get this baby started. Chennai have had their huddle. The umpires are ready. Now enter Mumbai's openers, Bravo and Jayasuriya. Its Bravo's last game. Albie Morkel will start proceedings for Chennai. Right-arm over the stumps. Big responsibility on his shoulders. One slip in place.

12.20 local Chennai looked set for a certain semi-final spot but slipped up against Bangalore. If they lose to Mumbai, they will have to win their last two games to make it comfortably to the semi-finals.

12.00 local Both sides are coming off losses. Starting off game one of this Saturday double header, two of the most marketable items in India are down for the toss. Sachin Tendulkar wins and puts pressure on MS Dhoni's Chennai by opting to bat.

Still no Zaheer Khan for an unchanged Mumbai Indians XI. For Chennai, Parthiv Patel gets another game as opener in place of M Vijay.

Steady crowd gathered in this afternoon. The track looks like it may assist the slower bowlers a bit. Sides winning the toss have opted to bat, but three have lost. The weather is a bit nippy it appears, not that bright or sunny. No rain forecast, just a strong breeze.

11.45 local Hello ... mic check ... testing one, two, three ... okay, there we go, seems to be working .... live from Cricinfo Towers ... its game 47 of the IPL!

So that was my attempt to do a Ravi Shastri. Sad, I know. Please don't email your complaints.

Goeie môre to all of you who have logged in today. Big game this for the Mumbai Indians, for whom the task of qualifying for the semi-finals has gotten tougher. They'll have to raise their game considerably to beat the top two ranked teams, Chennai Super Kings today and later the Delhi Daredevils.

There's still about 40 minutes to make changes to your Fantasy League teams. Highs and Lows looks back at the recent action: Bhajji v Sreesanth, Agarkar's nadir, the dedicated professionals of the week, and more.

5.4

Tyagi to Jayasuriya, FOUR, another short ball and he pulls from outside off stump, not timed well but its over midwicket, drops safely, and just trickles into the boundary ropes out there

Change of angle for Tyagi ... short third man in place ...

5.5

Tyagi to Jayasuriya, SIX, bye bye! Tyagi gives him so much room to free the arms and Jayasuriya unfurls that trademark slash up and over cover, beating the man on the ropes by some margin

Back over the stumps goes Tyagi ...

5.6

Tyagi to Jayasuriya, OUT, last ball of the Powerplay and he's gone! Carried away by the thrill of the last five deliveries, Jayasuriya swings at a length ball outside off stump and slices a top edge that goes up and settles in Raina's hands at cover

Morkel to Nayar, OUT, excellent bowling, smart fielding! Albie lands his yorker on the spot, Nayar can only punch it back, Duminy is way out of his crease and Albie collects and breaks the stumps

JP Duminy run out 62 (54b 4x4 2x6) SR: 114.81

How crucial these yorker-lengths ball are. In comes Harbhajan Singh.

Morkel to Nayar, SIX, oh thats just an amazing shot! Really is! Nayar gets across his stumps and paddles the full ball, which wasn't a yorker this time, and goes rows back over fine leg

19.5

Morkel to Nayar, 1 run, now he makes room and drives a very full ball to extra cover for one

Third man is up ... deep midwicket .. fine leg is up ...

Morkel to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, OUT, full toss, Harbhajan swings it down on the bounce to Hayden at long-on, who fires back a superb throw to Dhoni to run out Harbhajan on the second, good fielding

Harbhajan Singh run out 1 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Chennai did well to keep them to 147, primarily by cutting Jayasuriya short after he cut loose and then dismissing Tendulkar for 11. Duminy again weighed in with a half-century and Nayar played a handy cameo, but is it enough? Lets find out shortly. Game on.

End of over 20 (11 runs) Mumbai Indians 147/5

    • AM Nayar 33 (27b 1x4 2x6)
    • JA Morkel 4-0-31-1
