Indian Premier League, 33rd match: Mumbai Indians v Deccan Chargers at Mumbai (BS), Apr 3, 2010
Mumbai Indians won by 63 runs
3 April 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Shikhar Dhawan and Sachin Tendulkar are making their way out, we are ready for the start. Sharad Pawar's in the stands. He's the ICC President in waiting. Rohit Sharma to start things off with the ball, with his offspinners. Here we go.

Sahil: "I disagree with GMO. The IPL is too long, with too many fours and sixes. It seems too monotonous! We need more low-scoring thrillers, with teams getting bowled out for 120-odd, yet defending it well!"

Afsar: "Mr Gilcrist. If you are reading this, please note all the problems that DC have been facing is due to the fact all the big star players, Gibbs,Symo yourself are all clobbed together in the first 4 slots. Other than the international starts no-one is capable of player longer and stable innings. Bring in atleast 1 of 3 lower down the order that bring confidence int he lower order batsmen. Good Luck today."

GMO: "Historically, as the IPL progresses towards the tail end of the tournament, innings totals get lower, I suppose due to bowlers bowling smarter. The game between Rajasthan and Chennai was a breath of fresh air. Twenty20 cricket should be about sixes and fours, and plenty of them."

Tendulkar has won the toss and opted to bat, he's going in with an unchanged team. Deccan have included Ryan Harris, we'll get you the XIs soon. Laxman has replaced Venugopal Rao, and Rahul Sharma comes in for Harmeet Singh. There's no Kemar Roach.

Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage of the 33rd game of the IPL, between Mumbai Indians and Deccan Chargers in Mumbai. A vital game for Deccan, who are on seventh place in the points table. Did you manage to catch the run-fest in Chennai just before this? Many will hope this will live up to something similar.

Jaskaran Singh to Rayudu, SIX, Rayudu is turning it on, short of a length, he gets to his half-century in style, stepping out of the crease, making room and clattering that over the deep extra cover boundary for six

18.6

Jaskaran Singh to Rayudu, 2 runs, dropped, admittedly, a difficult chance, pulled away over square leg, Rohit runs across and dives but can't quite hold on to that powerfully struck shot, however he keeps them to a couple

20 off that over, whatever words of advice Gilly had for Jaskaran have not been heeded

End of over 19 (20 runs) Mumbai Indians 164/4 (RR: 8.63)

    • AT Rayudu 55 (29b 6x4 2x6)
    • KA Pollard 7 (4b 1x4)
    • Jaskaran Singh 2-0-28-0
    • RJ Harris 3-0-26-0

19.4

Harris to Pollard, 2 runs, two more, slower one and he mistimes a pull, the fielder has to run to his left, collects but Pollard rushes back quickly to finish the second

19.5

Harris to Pollard, FOUR, Pollard's doing well here, full toss outside off, makes room and slices it over point and it rolls over the ropes

19.6

KA Pollard c Symonds b Harris 21 (10b 3x4 0x6) SR: 210.00

Not a great beginning for Harris in this IPL, but Mumbai have reached a more than satisfactory total after the Deccan spinners had restrained them. Tiwary and Rayudu built up the recovery, and Rayudu combined with Pollard at the death to steal 64 off the last five overs, and 34 off the last two, to take Mumbai to 178. Deccan have a challenging task ahead. Join us in a bit.

End of over 20 (14 runs) Mumbai Indians 178/5

    • AT Rayudu 55 (29b 6x4 2x6)
    • RJ Harris 4-0-40-1
    • Jaskaran Singh 2-0-28-0
