    5.1 this one goes below the radar! Shakib bowls these balls from time to time.. It's the arm-ball, keeps coming in and stays mighty low. Simmons was aiming for the sight screen - he was out of the crease and gave it a proper swing, but the bat just met thin air and the ball crashed low into the leg stump. He makes amends for that dropped catch 35/2
    2.2 straight to cover! Gautam was not very comfortable against the pace of Morkel, so this time he tries to force it. He moves to the leg side and tries to drive it on the up through covers, but is not able to keep it down. Good low catch by Surya 12/1
    11.5 the sagging run scoring takes its first victim! Rayudu comes down the pitch to force the pace, wanted to smash it over long-on but doesn't get hold of it - the ball has been stopping in the pitch all day. This one is safely taken at long-on 70/3
    19.2 Narine shows no emotion as he takes out Rohit! The batsman was looking to play the lap shot, he walked right across the stumps, but this zipped off the surface to crash to the top of off 138/5
    15.6 this is a soft dismissal now! Just when you though Mumbai were making a charge, Anderson plays a tame chip shot straight to midwicket 115/4

    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
