Indian Premier League - 25th match

Deccan Chargers v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 41 runs

7.55pm: Looking forward to Roach firing it in with the new ball. He broke Vusi Sibanda's bat with a fast yorker recently in the West Indies. Quiet please, players are ready, thank you.

7.30pm: Welcome to the coverage of the second game tonight between Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians. Ironically, it is technically a home game for Deccan despite the match being played at the DY Patil Stadium in Nerul, Navi Mumbai. The toss is coming up in a minute.

Toss: Gilchrist has won the toss and Deccan will bowl. Kemar Roach gets his first game. That's the big news. VVS Laxman, Rahul Sharma and Chaminda Vaas miss out. Jaskaran Singh and Monish Mishra are the other two inclusions.

Mumbai have left out Aditya Tare and Ambati Rayudu comes in and he will keep wicket. The teams will be up soon.

Guys sorry for keeping you waiting. The broadcasters are only interested in showing highlights of the Chennai game and not the teams for the upcoming one. We're all helpless. Anyway, at least the changes are mentioned above.
