View dismissal MA Agarwal c Sharma b Pollard 41 31 4 2 132.25
10.4 Rohit holds on, and then slams the ball in to the ground in anger, Mayank went back and just flat-batted the shortish ball, got not much on it and it harmlessly settled in to the hands of Rohit at long on, respite for Mumbai? don't think so 113/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c Franklin b Patel 89 47 9 5 189.36
14.4 he is gone! it seemed to be another of those monster sixes off a full ball, but in the end he got more height on it than anything else, Franklin kept running to his left at long on, while everyone else was resigned to the possibility of it being six more, he got around to it in the end and took the ball inches from the rope 148/2
View dismissal V Kohli b Ahmed 8 12 0 0 66.66
15.2 Virat is gone! Nechim had rolled his fingers on the ball, and it cut in slowly from short of a length, Virat was already swinging for the pull, and got a huge inside edge on to the stumps, can Mumbai pull things back? 151/3
AB de Villiers not out 21 15 0 1 140.00
View dismissal LA Pomersbach c Malinga b Patel 4 4 0 0 100.00

View dismissal AC Blizzard c Agarwal b Aravind 10 11 2 0 90.90
3.3 that is the first one for Bangalore, Blizzard has slogged out to long on, he made room and went down on his knee to swing a fuller one hard but only got it as far as Mayank at long on 23/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar* st †de Villiers b Syed Mohammad 40 24 7 0 166.66
7.6 that is huge turn, and Sachin has fallen to the left-arm spinner, again he tried to walk down the track, Syed bowled it a touch shorter and flatter around leg stump, Sachin stopped in his tracks, trying to deal with the changed trajectory, but he was in no position to negotiate the sharp turn past him that took the ball just outside off where AB was waiting, and had the bails off even as Sachin tried to get the back leg back in the crease, huge strike, Sachin was motoring along nicely without a bother 68/3
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Pomersbach b Aravind 13 7 1 1 185.71
5.1 that is the end of Harbhajan, Aravind angled in a short of a length ball from round the wicket, and Harbhajan looked to swat-pull him over deep square leg, but got it too square and the ball looped up to where deep midwicket was waiting, some yards in from the boundary 41/2
View dismissal RG Sharma c Pomersbach b Vettori 13 15 1 0 86.66
10.4 and Dan has done Rohit in with the flight and even more so, with the dip, tossed it up generously, Rohit saw the opportunity to get some runs over extra cover, even as he prepared to loft, it dipped alarmingly on him, and turned past to take the outside edge of the big swing and loop weakly in the air to sweeper cover 82/4
View dismissal JEC Franklin b Khan 16 17 0 1 94.11
14.4 there goes Franklin, Mumbai have crumbled, Franklin had backed away outside leg, Zaheer was bang on middle stump on a length, Frankling missed the swipe and Zaheer struck timber, Mumbai have crumbled 99/7
View dismissal AT Rayudu lbw b Vettori 0 1 0 0 0.00
10.6 Ambati departs now, Dan strikes again, it was tossed up, drew Rayudu forward, but curled in a long way with the angle, with the result that Rayudu ended up pushing outside the line, and then the ball straightened from around middle and leg stump to strike him in front, gone 83/5
View dismissal KA Pollard c Mithun b Vettori 3 6 0 0 50.00
12.5 you won't see a better catch than that, Mithun has pulled off a stunner on the long off boundary, Pollard had got one off the middle of the bat for once, and it normally heads for six when that happens, this one seemed headed that way as well, in to the Mumbai dugout, but Mithun had placed himself an inch inside the rope, and was watching the ball come down like a hawk, it came down and crossed the ropes, but Mithun's outstretched right hand was there as well, and he managed to keep that leg planted firmly an inch inside, tremendous, the dugout is stunned, Mithun has taken off 89/6
R Sathish not out 18 21 1 0 85.71
View dismissal SL Malinga c Pomersbach b Syed Mohammad 7 5 0 1 140.00
15.5 one more goes down, Malinga it is this time, tries to swing it with the angle over wide long on, does not time it at all, it goes high in the air and comes down swirling on Pomersbach who takes it cleanly but teeters around teasingly close to the ropes, then goes down but holds on 110/8
