    10.2 Vijay perishes now. Arm-ball flat and quick on middle and leg, Vijay seeks to pull it away. Not a full-blooded one, not all that well-timed, neither did he impart power to it. Suchith snaps it up the top edge at deep backward square 88/3
    6.4 Bhajji strikes in his first over, Sehwag's effort has been cut short. Pushed through quicker on off, looks like the arm-ball. Viru steps out, does not get hold of the lofted-hit, skews it in the air. Pollard settles under it at long-on. Redeems himself for the mis-field early on 60/1
    7.4 Maiden IPL wicket for Suchith. Maxi gone now. This was flat and quick on off, he aims to slog it away from there. Low-percentage cross-bat swipe. Miscues it to Rayudu at deep midwicket 68/2
    15.3 Miller undone by Malinga.. The umpires check for a possible no-ball, just a customary check, all fine though. Slippery delivery sprayed wide outside off, Miller wants to attack it, but can only edge it thickly to the left of Tare. Change of pace, there. Key wicket for the hosts 134/4

    17.1 If Axar's promotion failed the other day, Dhawan's does today. Where is Saha? Fuller and straighter, Dhawan picks it up from there and whips it straight down the gullet of deep square leg. Simple catch for Vinay. The off-speed ball pulled the wool over Dhawan and Malinga exults 150/5

    0.2 superb delivery. This is beautifully bowled by Sandeep! It pitches on a length outside off and jags back in sharply, enough to beat the inside edge of the bat and strike Rohit on the back pad. The umpire waits for a bit before raising his finger. Rohit was looking to play it to the leg side but did not account for the movement. Unbeaten on 98 last game, out for a duck this time! 0/1

    5.2 Mitch has his man! He leaps off his feet and celebrates. This was on a length and on off, hint of inward movement. Finch goes for a low-percentage slog across the line and misses. Mitch pegs the off stump back 17/3
    3.3 Thanks for coming, Aditya Tare.. He nips down the track, Anureet is smart enough to shorten his length. The ball hits the splice of the bat as opposed to the bat hitting the ball. Spoons it through to M Vijay at the covers, he moves to his left and grasps it. Anureet is pumped after drawing the error from Tare 15/2
    11.5 Rayudu has to depart now. This was short and sliding across Rayudu, who had initially made room to go over the covers. He makes a meal of the shot and nicks it through to Saha. Poor, poor batting from the hosts. Saha takes it at head height 46/5
    7.3 Mumbai slump further to 25 for 4. Corey is down the track, Axar pulls his length back a bit and fires it outside off. Corey can't connect with, Saha can't connect with it properly either. The ball brushes his gloves, pops out and disturbs the woodwork. Corey is short, he is stumped. As our feedbacker Sidharth chimes in: was Corey watching Man Utd game there? 25/4
    13.4 If Maxi doesn't get you, Miller will. Axar gives this some air, Pollard aims to loft it away and holes out to Miller at long-off. Definition of a dolly. In case you are interested, the asking rate is 18.78. Pollard skied it off the base of the bat 59/6

    19.5 End of a serial-bombing of an innings from Bhajji. Anureet congratulates him. He elicits tremendous applause from the crowd as he walks back. Maxi pats him as well. On a length and outside off, carved into the hands of deep point 159/7
