    2.1 This game is more or less over, Sehwag is gone, Munaf gets the big breakthrough first ball, a shortish ball on middle and off, Sehwag looks to pull it, gets a top edge which hangs in the air for a long time, Rohit made sure the converging fielders know it's his catch, he snaffles it 4/3
    0.5 Harbhajan gets a wicket in the first wicket once more, that pitched on middle and straightens, Warner had a big stride in as he looked to defend, struck just above the knee roll, umpire Hariharan wastes little time lifting the finger, Warner walks off shaking his head, not sure he had much to complain about 3/1
    1.1 awesome from Malinga, what is a loosener he asks as he unleashes an inswinging yorker to crash into the base of middle and leg, Ingram had no clue about that one, no shame being dismissed by a ripper like that, 'Nailed' says the giant screen 4/2
    2.5 that seemed out, Rayudu is the picture of disbelief, he thinks there's big edge after the ball moves away and Ojha fishes at it outside off, there was a huge noise, Munaf was celebrating his second wicket in the over, only to turn back and see Hariharan is unmoved, Mumbai can't believe it, then Hariharan walks over to the square leg umpire and confers before giving it out, not sure what could have been discussed there 7/4
    13.4 wonderful from Kulkarni, an inch-perfect yorker, Rao tries an ambitious shot, looks to guide the yorker to third man, gets a bottom-edge and the ball rolls on to the stumps, off-bail falls 94/5
    16.5 the end of Hopes, communication breakdown there, Hopes skips away from leg and punches the ball to extra cover, he sets off for the quick single, Irfan takes a couple of paces and then decides he wants to hang around at the non-striker's end, Hopes is stranded halfway down the pitch 123/6
    17.5 there's signature Malinga delivery, a stunning yorker, 144kph, Irfan looks to whip it to the leg side, he misses and the ball crashes into legstump 128/8
    16.6 Munaf has finally hold on to a catch today, Yogesh Nagar wanted to send his first ball into orbit, he sweeps and gets a top edge that flies towards Munaf at deep square leg, it is to Munaf's left but he manages to pouch it, Mumbai's fielding coach Jonty Rohodes will be a happy man 123/7
    not out
    19.4 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 146/9
    19.5 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 146/10
