Indian Premier League, 14th match: Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers Bangalore at Mumbai (BS), Mar 20, 2010
Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 7 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)
20 March 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Steyn to Jayasuriya, OUT, and he's nailed him this time! Similar ball, on a length from over the wicket and straightening after pitching on middle, catches Sanath on the hop. Umpire Kumar Dharmasena thinks for a moment and sends his long-time team-mate back. Big wicket!

ST Jayasuriya lbw b Steyn 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Mumbai Indians 6/1   SR Tendulkar 3* (4b)   DW Steyn 0.3-0-1-1

Kallis to Tare, OUT, Kallis has his man! The good old strategy of bouncing out young Indian batsmen pays off again. Kallis lets rip a very accurate bouncer, Tare is late into the shot and it pops up straight to short midwicket.

AP Tare c Pandey b Kallis 9 (10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Mumbai Indians 36/2   SR Tendulkar 16* (12b 3x4)   JH Kallis 0.3-0-4-1

Kumble to Tiwary, OUT, Jumbo has not lost one bit of the zip! Wonderful, wonderful googly, draws Tiwary down, and then turns from leg, beats the attempted loft by inches and crashes into the stumps. Great bit of bowling, and it's quit amazing to see that Kumble has not lost a single trick, despite being out of cricket for quite a while now.

SS Tiwary b Kumble 25 (21b 3x4 0x6) SR: 119.04

Mumbai Indians 71/3   SR Tendulkar 25* (21b 4x4)   A Kumble 1.3-0-6-1

Vinay Kumar to Rayudu, OUT, Rayudu goes! Mumbai have a bit of a wobble. Short and outside off, Rayudu tries a half-hearted half-cut, half-guide down to third man and gets a thick edge through to Boucher.

AT Rayudu c †Boucher b Vinay Kumar 3 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Mumbai Indians 74/4   SR Tendulkar 25* (21b 4x4)   R Vinay Kumar 2.1-0-15-1

Vinay Kumar to Tendulkar, OUT, The big Big fish is gone! Straight ball, angling from middle to leg, and Sachin tries to get inside the line and work it down. He exposes leg stump, the ball finds a way past and disturbs the woodwork. Mumbai Indians are in big trouble now.

SR Tendulkar b Vinay Kumar 25 (22b 4x4 0x6) SR: 113.63

Mumbai Indians 75/5   DJ Bravo 1* (1b)   R Vinay Kumar 2.3-0-16-2

Vinay Kumar to Bravo, OUT, Bravo is gone now! Vinay has picked three wickets in an over and ripped open Mumbai! Good ball, angling in again, short of a length, pegs Bravo back and catches him plumb in front of middle and leg.

DJ Bravo lbw b Vinay Kumar 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Mumbai Indians 76/6   R Sathish 0* (2b)   R Vinay Kumar 3-0-16-3

Steyn to Pollard, OUT, and he's holed out to deep cover! That was not part of the plan for Pollard - full outside off at 139.9kph from Steyn, Pollard looks to carve it over the off side, but the timing's not good enough for six, and too good for him to not be caught. Kohli takes an easy one at sweeper.

KA Pollard c Kohli b Steyn 21 (19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 110.52

Mumbai Indians 123/7   R Sathish 23* (20b 3x4)   DW Steyn 3.1-0-22-2

Steyn to Sathish, OUT, what a catch! Dravid, take a bow! Short and hurries on to Satish, he's late on the pull, and the ball balloons towards midwicket, Dravid has room to cover, gets there and puts out a right hand and tumbles, and comes up with the ball. Top catch!

R Sathish c Dravid b Steyn 24 (22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 109.09

Mumbai Indians 125/8   Harbhajan Singh 1* (2b)   DW Steyn 3.5-0-24-3

Kumar to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, got him! Short ball from Praveen, well directed again. Harbhajan top-edges the pull really high. Kallis gets under it and takes it easily at square leg. Bangalore have perfected the art of using bouncers to good effect in Twenty20.

Harbhajan Singh c Kallis b Kumar 4 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Mumbai Indians 135/9   Z Khan 7* (4b 1x4)   P Kumar 3.1-0-21-1
