    12.1 and Super Kings have come back into the match.What a bowling change this has proved to be. A lovely yorker from Smith. Simmons gets a bit too cheeky with it. Looks to open the face to run this fine, the yorker squeezes past the bat, and kisses the outside of his off stump. This is the first time Smith has bowled this season. And it is in the big final with his team under the pump. And he has hit the off stump with a yorker 120/3
    0.5 Faf du Plessis has produced the first bit of magic on the big night. Patel is out for a duck. He flicks this wristily towards mid-on. The ball is not hit well, which means they can think of a single. Du Plessis charges in, dives in to save time, is off balance, the ball hasn't sat properly in his right hand, but he flicks it underarm even as he comes down. The ball loops to the top of the stumps at the non-striker's end to catch the little Patel short 1/1
    11.6 slower ball. Guess Rohit picked it but didn't time the shot well. Yes he picked the slower ball early. It was on a length, the slower offbreak, and Rohit set himself up for the big slog. In the end he got cramped a little, and ended up hitting this straight to long-on. So Bravo gets a wicket in the first over, but must it be the 12th or later? 120/2
    18.5 wide half-volley, Mohit gets away with it. Pollard hits this off the toe end as he looks to go over cover. The mis-hit settles with Raina at deep cover. A dot and a big wicket 191/4

    19.2 wide of the crease again, a full toss to cramp him up, and it seems the plan for Pandya. He is cramped on the shot as he looks to go over midwicket. Raina charges in from the fence, and dives forward to take an excellent catch. Last four balls: two wickets and zero runs 191/5

    11.5 Illingworth has given Smith out lbw again. This time, though, he is plumb. This is a topsinner, pitched just outside off, doesn;t turn as much as an offbreak would, beats the sweep and hits him in front of middle. This is straightforward 88/2
    4.4 wide full ball, Hussey sees some release, he drives it hard, goes uppishly to cover-point where Suchith seems to have taken a low catch but immediately says he is not sure. The soft signal as they go upstairs is not out. To me it looks like it bounced straight on the fingers. Mumbai have begun to celebrate as they look at the big screen. They are not even waiting for the official decision. That looks out to me. It looks like it has bounced, but it has bounced in his fingers that have kept the ball from touching the ground. Finally given out officially 22/1
    13.3 Harbhajan has another wicket. Raina won't get 400 for the season. Lovely stumping from Parthiv Patel. Harbhajan sees Raina coming, slips in a quick wide ball that lands just short of the popping crease, but Patel makes a superb collection and whips the bail off. Raina is down on ground, and so are Super Kings 99/3
    15.5 slower-ball yorker. Gets under his bat, lands on the crease, hits the bat pad as he is on his knees trying to get under it. The ball ricochets off the pad, and hits the stumps. Malinga is called back to take a wicket, and he has taken out the big one 124/5
    14.3 short of a length, angling away, Bravo looks for a big hit, gets a thick edge and third man takes the catch 108/4
    17.3 slower ball again. Malinga doesn't need to exerts himself on yorkers now. This is short of a length, on the pads, gets Negi's leading edge, and lobs for an easy catch to point 134/7
    16.2 du Plessis is down the wicket to drive at this wide and full ball, and can't clear extra cover. Another wicket falls. CSK could get bowled out here 125/6

    18.2 another wicket goes down. A serious chance to bowl Super Kings out. Ashwin looks for a big hit, gets too under a length ball and is caught at wide long-on 137/8
