Indian Premier League - 55th match

Delhi Daredevils v Mumbai Indians

Delhi Daredevils won by 4 wickets (with 15 balls remaining)

12.27pm: We are all set. Finally we see Tendulkar and Jayasuriya back at the top of the order. Just why did they split?

Jaya to face, Nannes to bowl, two slips. Play

** 12.10pm: More changes for Delhi, Pradeep Sangwan replaces Ashish Nehra, and Rajat Bhatia replaces Yogesh Nagar. Three overseas players who go out are Maharoof, Vettori McDonald.

12.05pm: Team news: Mohammad Ashraful replaces Dwayne Bravo, and Rahil Shaikh makes his debut. He will take Chetanya Nanda's place. Also Pinal Shah replaces Yogesh Takawale.

For Delhi David Warner, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Dirk Nannes come back. Hang on for the complete team lists

** Noon: Time for toss now. Ramiz Raja promises a "spectacular game" between teams led by "spectacular captains". Amen. Sehwag has won the toss and chosen to field. He wants to get acclimatised to chasing - his side has defended okay so far.

Sachin Tendulkar, who damaged his finger attempting a slip catch in New Zealand, has now discovered it's broken. But he says it should be fine.

11.55pm: Danny Morrison finds that the outfield has browned up, this being this time of the year of course. Sunil Gavaskar finds even the pitch doesn't have much grass, and expects totals of around 140.

** 11.45am: Hello hello hello. Join me in bidding farewell to Mumbai Indians, the unerperformers of the year. This is their last game, and they have only pride to play for, against Delhi Daredevils, who will look to build momentum going into the knockouts. Figure out the best combination, also another opportunity for Virender Sehwag to get to form.

The talking point over the last two days, as through the tournament, has been the identity of the Fake IPL Player. At last the dastardly blogger is brought to light. Sort of. Off the Record has the details, as ever.

0.1

Nannes to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, digs it in short and wide, and the ball moves away after pitching

0.1

Nannes to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, goes further up, but is still wide, and the swing carries it farther

0.1

Nannes to Jayasuriya, OUT, he gets it on target, and how. Smartly bowled this time, pitched up, and instead of swinging away, taking it in with the angle, pitched just outside off, hit him in front of off, and headed towards the stumps. Another golden duck

ST Jayasuriya lbw b Nannes 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Nannes to Duminy, no run, misses out perhaps, length ball, angling down the pads, but gets only his pad through to the wicketkeeper

2.3

Nannes to Duminy, OUT, it's Nannes's turn to make a comeback, and it's Nannes's bounce that claims Duminy. Back of a length, just outside off, Duminy looks to steer it, but the extra bounce takes the edge through to Karthik

4.6

Sangwan to Rahane, no run, accurate delivery again, pitches off, shapes in a touch, and played straight to square leg. But for the wide, a wicket-maiden

Staying with McGrath, ARV says, "Glenn McDonald would make him select, too."

End of over 5 (1 run) Mumbai Indians 28/3 (RR: 5.60)
AM Rahane    0* (3b)      PJ Sangwan    1-0-1-1

Mishra to Rahane, no run, tossed up, on the off stump, and played back to the bowler

9.2

9.6

Mishra to Rahane, no run, leading edge as Rahane turns the bat to leg too early, but the edge is not strong enough to carry to Mishra

Mumbai will feel they have made a good comeback after three early wickets. Seventy-two after 10 is not bad, but Mumbai are also used to collapses post the time-out. We will see in 450 seconds how they fare this time.

Another feedback, meanwhile, on McGrath issue. From Mahesh: "If McGrath really wants to play, he should go by his middle name for some time - and be known as Donald Glenn McGrath"

So Mumbai have given themselves a good total to defend. Time is ripe for Sehwag and some of the other Delhi batsmen to get some form. We will see how it goes, in a bit.
