    15.6 middle stump takes a beating! Uthappa was staying still while playing those smooth drives, but this time he moves to the leg side to make room and just plainly misses this one.. 116/3
    7.2 he chops it on! Gambhir has been looking to play that short for a while, he goes back to play it again, expecting the ball to turn away, but this one doesn't...he gets a thick inside edge and shatters his stumps 50/1
    14.1 another inside edge, another wicket! That's what Mumbai need - a few that stay low. This one was bowled at a snail's pace, Pandey goes on the back foot to cut, but this one just doesn't rise.. He chops it on to his leg stump 96/2

    18.3 another slower delivery and Shakib lifts it straight up in the air, easy catch by Rayudu who comes running in from long-on. He was looking for the big finish (he has done that in the past, against Nepal recently), but is outfoxed by Malinga this time 138/4
