Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 5 Runs | MI: 126/8

  • DS Kulkarni7 (9b)
  • RR Raje11 (7b)
  • RP Singh4-0-19-2
  • RJ Harris4-0-25-0

Whew, good game that. Low-scoring with plenty of twists and turns, no pun intended. After RP Singh's double strike Mumbai were on the back foot, but a 53-run stand between Shah and Duminy had revived them. Then Gilchrist turned to part-time spin and Suman almost immediately got Shah. Then just when Bravo seemed primed to assist Duminy he gave Suman a second when the bowler returned. Then it was all over to Rohit Sharma, who took a hat-trick. Deccan came back strong and pulled it out from beneath Mumbai's feet.

RP, Suman and Rohit all bowled well. Deccan win by 19 runs and are now at two on the points table. Mumbai are second last at seventh. Deccan were without Edwards and Ojha but still did superbly. Crucial strikes at the start, around the half-way mark, and during the slog. Those will win you games. Mumbai just choked.

SuperSport Park has been treated to a great game. Not many runs but plenty of wickets. Its good to see matches dominated by bowlers, that too spinners, in this format. Lets go to the post-match presentation.

Tendulkar says Mumbai's bowlers did well but the batsmen didn't reciprocate. Says Shah did his well as pinch hitter. But whats this about a pinch hitter in Twenty20, I ask?

Next up is Gilchrist. He says Deccan would have liked some more runs and says he was foolish with the bat. But credits the batsmen who hung on and then the spinners who protected a decent score. Says this is a big win. A special shout out to Harris for that catch at third man and the ball to get Tendulkar. Says Rohit was 'outstanding' and 'unbelievable'.

Few surprises that Rohit is Man of the Match. His 38 was Deccan's best score and then came a hat-trick. Really a good evening for him. He says the pitch wasn't that easy to bat on but smiles when he talks about his bowling.

So thats the end of that. We have two games tomorrow so don't forget to join us. Bye for now!
