Commentary

A massive victory for Mumbai Indians. Have they knocked KKR out here? Here's the points table. Mumbai got the runs they needed in the death overs and their bowling proved too strong for KKR. Mumbai have moved to second on the points table. Sidharth Monga's updated report should be ready soon. We'll get you the presentation details soon.

Gambhir: "I don't know whether it's a jinx, but if you don't play proper cricket, this is what is going to happen. Every game is a new game, I see a lot of quality around our dressing room. We have four more games to go. We have a lot of depth in our batting, we'll put our best playing XI on the park."

Rohit: "Been going really well so far. I just don't want to relax. We've got four games to go, not taking it easy. Tendulkar is experienced enough, he got us the start we wanted. 170 on this ground, there wasn't much dew today."

Tendulkar is Man of the Match for his 48: "If you look at the whole season., I've not been able to spend much time in the middle. But whatever I've batted, it's been pretty aggressive. There has been a bit of help for the seamers. I was striking the ball well today, and I thought therefore I should be more aggressive. It's about give and take - giving advice. It shouldn't be one way traffic about just me talking, it's about discussing cricket and sharing our thoughts. The passion for the game is very much there, whatever time I get on the field I try to make the most of it."

Great, thanks for tuning in and sending us your feedback. Catch you tomorrow. Good night.

Malinga to Balaji, OUT, KKR have been bowled out, bowled it full on middle and Balaji failed to keep it out, was the slower yorker, he had no answer

Arvind: "Problem with D Smith is that he takes too long to get into 5th gear. If he does not lose his wicket, then he compensates for it. But imagine a scenario where he gets out before getting into the 5th gear. That would be a disaster against a good team. This happened today but thanks to D Karthik and McLaren, Mumbai are going to win it easily!"

Vignesh: "Probably the reason everyone's behind Dwayne Smith is cause he's keeping Punter and Maxwell out of the side. Think they should look to try and give Punter another go. He's a big game player and come the pressure in the knock outs you'd want someone of his caliber in the crease."

Malinga to Iqbal Abdulla, 1 run, slower one, didn't pick it, checked his shot in the end, lobbed up towards a vacant extra cover region

John Britto : "Why on earth is everyone behind Dwayne smith? He's averaging 40 this season at a strike rate of over 130. He's played two match-winning knocks to get MI's campaign back on track. He's beena bit slow in the past 2 matches coz tendulkar fell early and someone had to anchor! Today tendulkar was firing and hence he decided to hold one end up! Going by what he has done so far for MI since their last league match last year, he's earned his place in the team!"

END OF OVER:
18 | 4 Runs 1 Wkt | KKR: 104/9

Johnson to Balaji, no run, swings and misses, short and he tries to go over midwicket, doesn't connect

Johnson to Balaji, no run, dropped that short on middle and he gets out of the way

Balaji walks in

Johnson to Narine, OUT, there was a sound, Narine walked as well, short and wide, tried to flat-bat that, got a feather to the keeper, Karthik was convinced, Johnson became convinced
17.3
2lb
Johnson to Narine, 2 leg bye, that clips the pads, Tendulkar runs across from fine leg, misfields while trying to collect and throw, concedes an extra run

So, two boring T20 games would you say, in the end? Largely because it was comfortably won and was so predictable after a point?
