Indian Premier League, 47th match: Mumbai Indians v Delhi Daredevils at Mumbai (BS), Apr 13, 2010
Mumbai Indians won by 39 runs
13 April 2010 - day/night match (20-over match)

So Madan will take first strike, opening with SRT. Nehra to bowl

Team changes For Delhi, Daniel Vettori, Farveez Maharoof, Mithun Manhas and Rajat Bhatia sit out. In come AB de Villiers, Andrew McDonald, Pradeep Sangwan and Sarabjeet Ladda.

For Mumbai, Lasith Malinga, Sanath Jayasuriya, Dhawal Kulkarni and R Sathish rested for Mumbai. Dilhara Fernando, Dwayne Bravo, Ali Murtaza and Chandan Madan in. A word on Madan: he is a wicketkeeper-batsman from Punjab, and he impressed with his big hits during the Corporate Trophy at the start of India's domestic season.

Toss SRT says it looks a fabulous track that will slow down later. Typical CCI wicket, GG calls it. SRT has won the toss and Mumbai will bat. Because he expects the pitch to go slow, he has included an extra spinner.

3.25pm Game 47. Mumbai's semi-final participation is Beyond A Reasonable Doubt, but a win against Delhi today can put it Beyond Unreasonable Doubt. Delhi, though, will be smarting after their loss to Punjab on a rank turner at the Kotla, and they badly need to arrest the tsunami that is storm to turn the Points Table upside down. Toss in five minutes.


Nehra to Madan, FOUR, swing right up, sharp swing, and Madan gets a perfect inside edge to beat keeper and fine leg


Nehra to Madan, no run, more swing, appeal for lbw, a slight inside edge makes it slide down the leg side


Nehra to Madan, no run, gets the middle of the bat this time, hits a full ball towards mid-off


Nehra to Madan, FOUR, Nehra unfortunate again, bowls the one angling away, has the desired result, an outside/toe edge, but it goes wide of first slip for four


Nehra to Madan, no run, back of a length, Madan stays back and defends


Nehra to Madan, no run, swing in to him again, this time he is behind the line of it and defends

End of over 1 (8 runs) Mumbai Indians 8/0 (RR: 8.00)

    • C Madan 8 (6b 2x4)
    • SR Tendulkar 0 (0b)
    • A Nehra 1-0-8-0

Pradeep Sangwan is the second half of the all left-arm opening attack


Sangwan to Tendulkar, 2 runs, back of a length, pushed towards Warner at midwicket, and his eagerness and the consequent misfield costs them two


Sangwan to Tendulkar, FOUR, Mumbai have well and truly edged ahead in this contest, this time Sachin inside-edges Sangwan, and it's placed painfully perfectly, past the keeper


Sangwan to Tendulkar, no run, full ball around off, and pushed to mid-on


Sangwan to Tendulkar, 1 run, back of a length, turned around the corner for the first run as intended - other 14 have been edges and misfields


Sangwan to Madan, 1 run, slower ball, runs it down to third man for a single


Sangwan to Tendulkar, no run, sharp bouncer, beats him for the pace as he tries to pull, Karthik appeals for a catch but nobody else is interested

Nehra to Madan, 1 run, fuller, and this time Madan opens the bat to get a single


Nehra to Tendulkar, 1 run, clipped away off the pads for a single


Nehra to Madan, 4 leg byes, that is downright unfair! the fast bowler balls a peach of a bouncer, catching the batsman slow, and hits him in the helmet, and the batting side still gets four runs via leg-byes


Nehra to Madan, no run, fuller ball, that's Madan's striking zone, and he smashes it back at Nehra who fields in his follow through


Nehra to Madan, no run, slower ball, slightly short of a length, defended back to the bowler

End of over 3 (6 runs) Mumbai Indians 22/0 (RR: 7.33)

    • C Madan 10 (12b 2x4)

    • A Nehra 2-0-10-0
    • PJ Sangwan 1-0-8-0

Sangwan to Tendulkar, 1 run, worked away off the pads for a single to deep square leg

Paul: "Re: recent 4 leg byes. Why did 4 leg byes count? He wasn't offering a shot?" But the demented rule allows you leg-byes if you are taking evasive action. Daft, really


Sangwan to Madan, 1 wide, full, swinging in, but down the leg side


Sangwan to Madan, FOUR, full and swinging in again, clipped away fine , in the air, and just fine of short fine, Nehra


Sangwan to Madan, no run, short of driving length, pushed to cover


Sangwan to Madan, 1 wide, bouncer, but too short and too high


Sangwan to Madan, (no ball) 1 run, back of a length, pushed to mid-off for one, what's more, he has over-stepped



Sangwan to Tendulkar, 1 no ball, slower bouncer, over the stumps, and the umpire has inexplicably called it a wide. Harper from square leg is signalling it went nose-high, but the main umpire has called it wide. Line was good, so was height! Ordinary umpiring

another free hit. Nehra walks up to Sangwan and says something


Sangwan to Tendulkar, no run, what a reply, perfect yorker, even SRT can't do much with it


Sangwan to Tendulkar, 2 runs, "walking flick", says Sunny G on air, and it is one, as he walks down the wicket and flicks it from outside off, against the angle, and wide of deep square


Sangwan to Tendulkar, 1 run, another flick shot, but this time closer to deep square leg

End of over 4 (13 runs) Mumbai Indians 35/0 (RR: 8.75)

    • A Nehra 2-0-10-0

Mishra comes on


Mishra to Tendulkar, FOUR, beautiful shot, comes down the track, gets too close to it, but still gets power into that shot, all timing actually, and hits it all along the ground and wide of mid-on for four


Mishra to Tendulkar, no run, stays back this time to turn it to leg, but hits it straight to square leg


Mishra to Tendulkar, 1 run, another shot wide of mid-on, not much power in it, and with single SRT overtakes Kallis as the leading scorer in this IPL


Mishra to Madan, no run, Madan jumps out of the crease and is beaten by the googly, which hits him in the pad and rolls off


Mishra to Madan, no run, the quicker front-of-the-hand-one, yorks him

    • SR Tendulkar 17 (14b 2x4)
    • A Mishra 1-0-5-0
    • PJ Sangwan 2-0-21-0

Vivek: "The previous over by Snagwan, the delivery after the No Ball was called a wide because he had already bowled his 1 bouncer for the over." Two things: Harper signalled one for the over on the second bouncer, and even if it is a second bouncer, it should be called no-ball, and not bouncer. Anyway McDonand to bowl


McDonald to Tendulkar, no run, pushes a length ball straight to cover


McDonald to Tendulkar, 1 run, stays back to pull this to deep square


McDonald to Madan, OUT, finally Madan edges to hand, slower short ball, and he pulls off the front foot and Mishra takes a smart catch running back from short fine and getting right under it

End of over 6 (4 runs) Mumbai Indians 44/1 (RR: 7.33)

    • SR Tendulkar 20 (18b 2x4)
    • SS Tiwary 1 (1b)
    • AB McDonald 1-0-4-1

Mishra to Tendulkar, FOUR, nice shot, too full on the pads, and swept away square of short fine, and fine of deep square


Mishra to Tendulkar, 2 runs, smart batting, flighted on the pads, and he just meets it with an angled bat and soft hands, and rushes back for two


Mishra to Tendulkar, 1 run, pitched on the pads again, and this time it is hit too hard, so only one


Mishra to Tiwary, 1 run, quicker one pushed down to long-off for one

    • A Mishra 2-0-15-0
    • AB McDonald 1-0-4-1

Gareth: "Whilst i was surprised Vettori was dropped Macca really is a good replacement. Tall and strong so he can really vary his pace, plus handy with the willow. In saying that, i now no longer know who's the scariest/imposing man on field; Tiwary or MacDonald..."


McDonald to Tiwary, no run, nice offcutter, back of a length, Tiwary looks to run it down but is beaten


McDonald to Tiwary, 1 run, same length, slightly wider, punched away to deep point


McDonald to Tendulkar, no run, beaten for length as he looks to run it past short third, it's just too full for that shot

Anand: "@Gareth - try Pollard for size."


McDonald to Tiwary, no run, back of a length, no room, pushed to cover


McDonald to Tiwary, 1 run, one hand comes off the bat as he squeezes this past cover for one

two good overs from McD - seven runs, one wicket

    • AB McDonald 2-0-7-1
    • A Mishra 2-0-15-0

Amit: "why was Shikhar Dhawan dropped? is he injured...he knows all the Delhi bowlers, he would have been handy!!" Maybe Mumbai are trying a few combinations now that they are virtually assured of a semi-final slot. Paul Collingwood into the attack, from round the stumps to Tiwary


Collingwood to Tiwary, 2 runs, played with the angle, soft hands ensure a couple


Collingwood to Tiwary, 2 runs, and again, he places it between deep square and deep midwicket to come back for an easy two


Collingwood to Tiwary, 1 run, slower offbreak, bunted into the on side, where no man is in the circle, and takes an easy single

Collingwood to Tendulkar, 1 run, another offspinner, short and pulled away for one


Collingwood to Tiwary, 1 run, overpitched, pushed to long-off for one

    • PD Collingwood 1-0-7-0
    • AB McDonald 2-0-7-1

Sangwan comes back


Sangwan to Tiwary, no run, length ball, driven on the up, one bounce to extra cover


Sangwan to Tiwary, 1 run, they'll do anything for SRT wicket! Sangwan appeals for a run-out as a straight hit from Tiwary hits the non-striker's stumps. But it is inches away from Sangwan's hand, the umpire knows it, and Sangwan smiles sheepishly. Naughty


Sangwan to Tendulkar, OUT, but he gets SRT the easy way! Soft dismissal on the face of it, but there hasn;t been a boundary for three has been only one boundary since ball No. 4.1. Makes room to hit a length ball inside-out, doesn't get the elevation and hits straight down straightish extra cover's lap. Silence at the CCI

SR Tendulkar c de Villiers b Sangwan 30 (27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 111.11

Rayudu is the new batsman


Sangwan to Rayudu, no run, Good afternoon Mr Rayudu! bouncer to begin with, sharp too, has to be quick in swaying out of the way

McDonald to Rayudu, 1 run, slower ball, worked away to square leg for one

Rohan Sachdev: "Its funny. I thought that with a semi-final spot guaranteed, the Mumbai Indians would be willing to push the likes of Bravo and Pollard up the order..."


Collingwood to Tiwary, 1 run, offcutter outside off, run down to short third for a single


Collingwood to Rayudu, 1 run, slower, loopy offbreak, mis-hit over Collingwood's head for one


Collingwood to Tiwary, SIX, Collingwood has been running in but bowling like a spinner, so Tiwary now treats him like one. Picks the slower one early and slog-sweeps him over midwicket

goes over the wicket now


Collingwood to Tiwary, 1 run, looks to make room, holds his ground later, Collingwood bowls straight, and he gets a single to short fine


Collingwood to Rayudu, 1 run, length ball, pushed down to long-on for one

Vibhash: "@rohan...see it like this. SRT has consistently pushed these two up the order in entire tournament. May be he wants these two talented players to get some exposure which will be good for india. And these two have done well and been least better than pollard."


Collingwood to Tiwary, 1 run, slower offcutter, bunted to cover for one

End of over 13 (11 runs) Mumbai Indians 92/2 (RR: 7.07)

Shashank: "What's the point of playing Ladda if you're not going to give him the ball until the later part of the innings where the batsmen will attack him and he'll be dropped for the next game." Back from time-out. Sangwan to bowl his final over


Sangwan to Tiwary, no run, length ball outside off, Tiwary's eye light up, gives it the full swing, but down the wrong line


Sangwan to Tiwary, SIX, that's a Tiwary special, walks down the pitch and wallops this bouncer over midwicket. Don't bother with the niceties, this is a proper muscled wallop


Sangwan to Tiwary, 2 runs, slower short one now, pulled wide of deep midwicket for two


Sangwan to Tiwary, FOUR, length ball outside off, and again he gives this hit his all, and whilst he has mis-hit he is looking to go over extra and hence is safe


Sangwan to Tiwary, OUT, slower ball, perfect line, pitching just outside off and breaking away to hit the stumps. Tiwary aborts the big shot, looks to open the face but misses

SS Tiwary b Sangwan 38 (28b 1x4 2x6) SR: 135.71

    • AT Rayudu 13 (11b 1x4)
    • PJ Sangwan 4-0-35-2
    • PD Collingwood 3-0-23-0

VS Arunkumar: "It is sad to see Pollard being criticized. He has performed well so far. He comes in late in the slog over, is an amazing fielder and bowls the medium pacers and has been quite effective overall. And i believe his role in MI and Sachin, he will change from just a six hitter to a more organized allrounder. I believe he has the talent to make it big."


Collingwood to Rayudu, 1 run, dropped by Karthik, Rayudu looks to drive an offbreak, gets a thick edge that hits Karthik on the thumb and pops out

round the wicket to Duminy

Collingwood to Duminy, 1 run, end of a good PC spell, finishes off with an accurate offcutter that yields a single to point

Sunil: "How can you send Dumminy ahead of Pollard with only 6 overs remaining & there is no requirement of stabilising the innings?" Mishra comes back


Mishra to Duminy, 1 run, JP gives him the charge and pushes him down to long-on


Mishra to Rayudu, 2 runs, worked away wide of deep midwicket for two


Mishra to Rayudu, 1 leg bye, goes for the stumping down the leg side again, and Rayudu manages to get an inside edge onto the pad


Mishra to Duminy, FOUR, loose ball, full on the pads, and easily swept past short fine


Mishra to Duminy, FOUR, the googly, almost does him in as he jumps out of the track, but the outside edge is healthy enough to go past Kathik


Mishra to Duminy, FOUR, and Duminy rubs it in by coming down the track again, taking this one on the full, and almost pushing it past long-off. Lovely timing

End of over 16 (16 runs) Mumbai Indians 124/3 (RR: 7.75)

Nehra to Duminy, 1 wide, goes for the yorker, slides it down the leg side


Nehra to Duminy, no run, slower ball, nicely bowled, clearly early into the slog, but it misses the leg stump


Nehra to Duminy, 1 run, wastes a leg-stump full toss by hitting it one-bounce to deep fine leg


Nehra to Rayudu, OUT, too much premeditation, Nehra bounces him as he sees him charge down, and Rayudu holes out to long-on

AT Rayudu c de Villiers b Nehra 24 (21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

End of over 17 (9 runs) Mumbai Indians 133/4 (RR: 7.82)

    • JP Duminy 16 (9b 3x4)

Pollard takes guard. Digging the bail in to mark where to stand. What a time for Ladda to bowl his first over


Ladda to Pollard, 2 runs, and he gets a leading edge first ball, Pollard looks to turn it to leg, and ends up hitting into the off side, along the ground, for two


Ladda to Pollard, FOUR, and Karthik lets another one through, Ladda has beaten Pollard twice in two balls. This time he looks for the big straight shot, gets a thick edge that goes past Karthik. Difficult chance, but a drop


Ladda to Pollard, 1 run, another leading edge, this time to short third man

Ladda to Pollard, SIX, it's a mis-hit for a six! What power, what a small ground! Toe-ends it over long-off

End of over 18 (14 runs) Mumbai Indians 147/4 (RR: 8.16)

    • KA Pollard 13 (5b 1x4 1x6)
    • JP Duminy 17 (10b 3x4)
    • S Ladda 1-0-14-0
    • A Nehra 3-0-19-1

Vibhash: "Love the way Pollard is batting against Ladda. He is making Ladda look like warne and himself - cullinan." Surely that comment came before the six


Nehra to Duminy, 1 run, yorker, spot on, just a single


Nehra to Pollard, 1 run, full and straight again, another single


Nehra to Duminy, 1 run, misses the yorker by a few inches, but JP gets only a single, to deep midwicket


Nehra to Pollard, SIX, that's one way of undoing yorkers! The ramp! The big man can be delicate too. Stays back, gets on a knee, takes it on the full, and scoops it over the keeper's head for, yes, six


Nehra to Pollard, 1 run, naturally the length shortens, but Pollard can't get it past midwicket


Nehra to Duminy, 1 run, another swinging yorker, another single, good over except for that manufactured six

End of over 19 (11 runs) Mumbai Indians 158/4 (RR: 8.31)

    • KA Pollard 21 (8b 1x4 2x6)
    • A Nehra 4-0-30-1
    • S Ladda 1-0-14-0

McDonald to bowl the last over. That's a gamble


McDonald to Duminy, 1 run, starts with a low full toss, gets a single to deep point


McDonald to Pollard, SIX, the yorker goes wrong by a little, and Pollard makes it horribly wrong! Low full toss, and Pollard has hit it over midwicket and out of CCI. For a moment, one of those floodlight towers looked prone too

that's Pollard's highest score in this IPL


McDonald to Pollard, FOUR, short ball, and muscled down the ground, the long-off could move only four steps by the time it cannoned into the boundary board

McDonald goes round the wicket


McDonald to Pollard, SIX, poor bowling here, short, and Pollard lofts it over midwicket. The big man has arrived


McDonald to Pollard, 2 runs, finally he gets the yorker right, and still Warner has to dive at long-on to save the boundary


McDonald to Pollard, SIX, that's what big hitters do to you. It's just not coming out right. Surely he tries another yorker, and again it turns out to be a full toss and he clears the front leg and goes square for another six

Twenty-five off the last over, 50 off last three. Surely Gambhir missed a trick by keeping a military-medium bowler for the last over. And, boy, did Pollard hammer McDonald. Join us for the chase

End of over 20 (25 runs) Mumbai Indians 183/4

    • KA Pollard 45 (13b 2x4 5x6)
    • JP Duminy 21 (14b 3x4)
