Commentary

Mumbai are a happy lot, they are through to the semi-finals. Delhi are out. Here''s the latest points table.

Harbhajan Singh has picked up an ankle injury in this game. Expect him to be rested for a few matches.

Presentation ceremony:
Virender Sehwag: "Very disappointed, because our top-order didn't click today. It is very difficult chase 180 when you lose four wickets for seven runs. I think if you look at the history in this season, that is true [on being asked about the notion that "if Sehwag scores, Delhi wins, else they don't"]".

Sachin Tendulkar: "I think in all departments we have done well, batting, bowling and fielding, we have to continue to be consistent. Munaf's been terrific, his attitude has been fantastic. We got off to a brilliant start, Blizzard who batted beautifully at the start."

Ambati Rayudu is the Man of the Match: " I'm really happy with the way I played, and the partnership with Rohit, who also played well today. It is a dream to represent the country. I'm used to keeping wickets, working hard on it and hope to improve it."

Sidharth Monga has the match report up.

That's it from us on this Saturday night. See you tomorrow, when the IPL reaches a half-century of matches. Already? Good night, and thanks for all the mails.

Pollard to Nadeem, OUT, that's the end of the game, a couple of wickets for Pollard to close out the match, back of a length ball, the batsman moves across the stumps and looks to whips it over short fine leg, where that ever-present Munaf Patel takes the catch that confirms the victory

W
Pollard to Morkel, OUT, Morkel is gone, Pollard gets a wicket, Delhi are nine down, Morkel wanted to slog that short of length ball into the crowd, can only get it as far as Andrew Symonds at deep midwicket

Malinga to Morkel, (no ball) FOUR runs, a no-ball, a slower ball gone wrong, another full toss over waist high, shortish and slapped for four over extra cover, since that is the second full toss above waist high, Malinga has to be taken out of the attack

0
Malinga to Agarkar, 1 bye, Munaf redeeming himself after the early mistakes in the field, Malinga fired in a yorker that sneaked between the batsman and legstump, keeper can't collect, Munaf sprints across to cut that off just in time

Malinga to Morkel, 1 run, dropped, punched back towards the bowler, who sticks out his right hand but the ball doesn't stick
