    2.5 Harbhajan roars. And why not? He has taken out KKR's captain. It landed on a length around leg and middle and skidded towards the off stump. Gambhir went for the slog sweep but missed it completely. Now then .. now then...! 13/2
    1.4 Munna bhai strikes. It was another full delivery, Kallis goes for the off drive but ended up slicing it a bit - Munaf had delivered it with a scrambled seam and that perhaps held up a bit - towards left of mid-off. Enter SRT into the act. He moved to his left and lunged out to pouch a low catch. Inches off the turf and all that jazz. 9/1
    3.2 Oh boy! KKR is imploding spectacularly. Spontaneous combustion. It was a short ball- Kallis had told him to look out for the short ball - Goswami backed away and had a wild slog at it. Cramped for room. Edge and gone! Munna is all smiles. 15/3
    5.3 Tiwary, you got to walk. He has to stop staring at the umpire and has to move. And he does so, eventually. He shuffled across and was caught on the move. The ball skid in to hit him in front. It would have taken out the top of the leg stump. Crash! KKR are swaying away like drunken men. 20/4
    12.6 The bouncer trick does the job for Munaf. The first bouncer flew over the keeper, the second was swatted to fine-leg, the third was lobbed over midwicket and now this. It was the short ball outside off, around chest-high, and Yusuf went for a flat-batted whack. The ball lobbed towards left of long-on where Pollard rushed across to take it very safely. 80/5

    17.1 The slower one works. Shakib had moved outside leg and Malinga follows him with a slower one. Shakib was too early into his pull shot and fails to connect. The ball hits his left thigh and falls on the stumps! Good cameo but it's over now 121/6
    18.2 Bhatia is run out It was another low full toss, swinging in from outside off, driven to left of long-off. Rohit collects and releases the throw quickly. Very accurate too. Dhawal breaks the bails before a diving Bhatia can gets his bat inside the crease. 131/7

    7.5 Lee bowls this fuller and Blizzard slashes it straight to deep point fielder. Very fine hand from Blizzard. He has put Mumbai on course here. 81/1
    10.5 Now then.. Do we have anything special looming over the Wankhede Stadium. Kallis hurled another bouncer, this time at the body of Tendulkar who tried to pull it. Cramped for room and done in for the pace and bounce. Tendulkar gets a top edge on that very awkward pull and the ball lobs to backward point 92/3
    8.2 Rohit Sharma is run out It was punched to mid-on off the back foot and Rohit set off. Tendulkar sends him back but Rohit had rushed too far across. Direct hit and he is gone. Sachin is angry at Rohit for running so far down. He makes his displeasure known. Rohit trudges back to the hut. Tendulkar had taken a start after playing that shot but said no almost immediately but Rohit had moved too far down the track by then 82/2
    12.5 Ambati Rayudu can't believe it! It was a bouncer outside off and Rayudu went for a cut. The ball flew through to the keeper. Kallis and Goswami celebrate. Rayudu actually had a wry smile as if to say why are you guys celebrating, I didn't nick it. The camera panned to the umpire Asad Rauf who put his finger up. Rayudu's visage turned grave. he can't believe it but he has to go. Hope they show another replay. There doesn't seem to be any deviation nor noise. No snicko or hot spot of course to really nail it down. 103/4

    15.4 Trapped! Shakib Al Hasan nails Pollard. It landed on a length on the middle and skidded on with the arm. Pollard pushed outside the line and the ball skidded on to hit the pad. That would have taken out the leg stump. Ooh la la. More fun awaits us. The game keeps turning and churning. hawk eye suggests it would have missed the leg stump. 123/5
    17.6 Crumble rumble! Shakib is da man tonight. Suman implodes. It was tossed up slowly on a length around off and Suman goes down the track and chips it to Manoj at long-off. The ball popped up but he held it on the rebound and then lobs it up and kicks it off his right foot 133/6
