    11.1 and the strategy finally works out for the veteran. He has been anticipating some impatience from Kishan, dropping it back of a length outside off consistently. This time, it is spinning towards the wide marker as Kishan steps out. There's some bounce on it too. Kishan steps out, isn't to the pitch and realises he has made too much room. Slashes at it, gets it off the bottom of the bat and holes out to long-off. Crafty offspin bowling 83/5
    1.6 scatters the stumps. Goes back to the basics, good length ball at off stump. McCullum steps down the track and makes a lot of room to try and slash this with a flat bat. The ball slides under his shot and crashes into the stumps 21/1
    4.2 good catch. This is good length at middle stump, Raina pushes nervously at it across the line. Can only chip it in the direction of Pollard at mid-off who leaps high to his left and tumbles and rolls over to arrest the momentum as he holds on 46/2
    5.5 the old offcutter works for Malinga. Back of a length outside off, Finch is leaping up as he pushes at this away from the body. It's come on slowly after sitting in the pitch and kissed the inside edge. The ball hits his thigh en route to the stumps 48/3
    8.1 runs past a wide ball. This is drifting down leg side, and goes straight on. Karthik steps out slightly, but the foot has gone across, the balance has gone awry, and the bat is locked. Ultimately, he is back in the dugout. Parthiv shuffled nicely to his left and flicked the bails off 56/4
    13.5 induces the top-edge and completes the catch himself. This is drifting away from off at a good length. Jadeja is not close to the pitch as he looks for the slog sweep and the angle means he gets a top edge. That hasn't gone past the square, Krunal takes it easily 95/6
    18.6 puts a stride across, exposes the leg stump, and loses it too. This has gone under his back leg as he looks to paddle it fine. An awkward end to a painful stay, and that's two wickets in two that might ensure ten runs fewer to get 144/9
    15.4 the Pandyas send their regards. Tossed up at middle stump, dips on him rapidly. He opens up to try and slog this over the midwicket boundary. Not to the pitch, gets under it too much and launches it high into the sky, it's only a few yards behind the circle where Hardik has reached briskly to snap it up 101/7
    18.5 unfortunate for Tye. Low full toss at middle stump, jammed into the pitch and Bumrah leaps up with his right hand to stop the ball. Tye has taken off and can't get back in time as Bumrah completes the run out 144/8

    13.5 taken this time. All happening. Good length outside off, Parthiv looks for a carve down to third man but just like Rohit's dismissal, the ball bounces extra and takes the outside edge. To Karthik's left and he holds on, a sharp catch. 109/4
    3.6 And Lions strike with a run-out. The worst ball of the over, short and wide from Soni. Cut away to backward point where Faulkner stops the ball with a dive. The ball ricocheted not too far away, Faulkner picked it up and effected a direct-hit at the batsman's end. Buttler not happy as he walks off. 43/1
    9.4 right in front, but was there some glove on that?. No need to play that stroke. Flat and straight from Soni, Rana gets low, looking to play a reverse sweep, but misses it. The ball spins back in and hits Rana on the glove. Umpire Gaffaney gives it. Not the right decision, but not an easy one to see either, especially because the bat almost covers the line 82/2
    13.1 a thin nick through and Rohit falls now. All that pressure trying to be released with deft touch. Not the worst option from Rohit, he sees third man is up so he tries to use the pace and guide the ball past him but the ball skids on, maybe gets some extra bounce and takes a thin edge through to Karthik. A discernible noise as ball passed bat. 104/3
    16.2 goes for it again but finds long-on. Full again, full and straight. Right in the slot. Pollard was slightly late on it, didn't quite get underneath the ball. Hits it flat and finds McCullum at long-on. Right in the hitting arc. A scrappy innings from Pollard, again undone by a bit of extra pace. A slightly slower ball and that would have been six 127/5
    19.6 is that out? There is a direct hit. Has Krunal made his ground? No he hasn't. It's a Super Over, the first of the IPL. Jadeja has done this with two direct hits. What fielding. Sensational. A yorker on the pads, Malinga misses a flick. The ball ricochets towards jadeja at point, picks up and throws the stumps down at the batsman's end to find Krunal short despite a dive. Magnificent fielding. 153/10
    18.1 this is not one of them. Looks for it, but doesn't get enough behind the ball. Hardik got across, looking for a hit down the ground, straight preferably. But the ball is on the legs which takes him aback. He tries to generate enough power through the stroke but his heave finds deep midwicket. He almost premeditated a big, straight hit. That ball was there for the picking through the leg side if he played it by merit 139/6
    18.5 not quite the yorker but it's full, it's straight, there is some reverse swing too. Quick and accurate. Harbhajan misses a straight one and the ball raps him in front of leg. Plumb in front. Good call umpire Chaudhary. That was quite predictable but Harbhajan done in by that reverse swing 142/7
    18.6 and gone. Direct hit. Run out. Mumbai are eight down. They may be all out. Thampi chooses a straight and full delivery. McClenaghan gets low and paddles to fine leg who was very square. It almost carries, Irfan goes for the catch. The ball falls short. He somehow manages to keep it in the field of play. He knows he still has work to do so he gets up and throws the ball back in, it hits the stumps direct at the batsman's end as McClenghan tries to sprawl in. A direct hit. Two direct hits. He did superbly well to prevent the boundary. Amazing work 143/8
    19.3 what is happening? That's run-out. Jadeja is the man. A slow ball outside off, hit towards point. Jadeja runs in, picks up and throws the stumps down at the bowler's end. Mumbai are nine down. The ball deflected away to the boundary so if Bumrah was in, that would have been four runs. Bumrah is well short. 150/9
