    10.2 outside edge and taken at slip by Yadav. 11/1
    19.2 outside edge and Tare takes it easily. 37/2
    42.2 nice shape to the ball as it swings away and Merai goes after it and finds the edge to Tare, it was too wide to play at that. 106/3

    73.4 goes for a pull and mishits in the air to the off side, umpires checking for noball, that was close. 254/5
    80.4 full and outside the off stump and Bhatt pushes in the air to point, Shaw takes the catch. 264/6
    92.5 now that corridor outside the off stump is where Shardul pitches. Chirag is tempted to have a poke at it. As in most cases, all he manages is an outside edge to the slip cordon where Suryakumar gobbles the catch. Are Gujarat leaving the door open for Mumbai? 291/7
    99.3 and strikes with the third ball of a fresh spell. Bowls one on the line of the stumps. He forces Kalaria to play. Kalaria looks to drive it but the ball moves back in a touch, with the angle and beats the intended drive. He is hit on his pads in front of the middle stump. That's a big wicket for Mumbai 313/8

    103.1 and that's a wicket! Sandhu bowls one wide outside the off stump. RP, in a mood to slog, goes after it and gets a top edge. Shreyas Iyer, running in from mid-off, calls for the catch and takes it. Sandhu has bowled well, in this spell,as he has worked his lines out for the batsmen. There was a slight confusion between the fielders but Shreyas calling from it ensures they both don't go for it. The other fielder was Shaw 326/9
    104.3 short of a good length delivery outside the off stump. Hardik has a defensive poke at it and gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Shardul has his second wicket today and four in all for the innings 328/10

    9.2 short ball outside the off stump. Herwadkar, who has been a little suspect about when to go for a cut, decides to cut and gets an outside edge to the second slip. Gohel cups his hands and takes the catch easily. 54/1
    13.1 you live by the sword and die by the sword! As good as his driving off the front foot has been this innings, he falls to a drive. Difference? The drives that he got boundaries of, he got the front foot to the pitch of the delivery, but this time he chases a wide one and gets a faint outside edge back to the keeper. Gujarat have the wicket that they were looking for. Chintan Gaja lets out a roar 66/2
    59.2 and that's the wicket Gujarat were looking for! Shreyas Iyer is foxed by the seam movement and chases the delivery again. This time he gets an outside edge that's taken by Parthiv. How will Mumbai approach the game from here? 193/3
    80.2 finally Suryakumar's patience wears thin! Kalaria bowls one down the leg stump line and Suryakumar goes after it. He gets some bat on it and the ball makes its way to the keeper's gloves. He starts walking as soon as he nicked it. For now, it will be difficult to decide the effect that this innings has on this match, but the dismissal has certainly come at a wrong time. Gujarat have a chance to come back into the match 238/4
    99.1 and that's the wicket Gujarat were after! He comes forward to a ball pitched on the off stump line and looks to play for the turn. He is foxed as the ball straightens a touch after pitching and hits him on the pad in front of off and middle. 297/6
    89.4 short ball wide outside the off stump. He could've cut it if he wanted to, but prefers to pull it instead. He pulls it straight into the hands of the fielder at deep square-leg: Chirag Gandhi. He does his best to drop it as he fumbles with the take four times and finally holds on to it. That's his 300th wicket 270/5

    137.1 and he gets a wicket with first ball as Tare and Pandit signalled to Nayar that it was the final over before they would declare. Nayar slogs across the line and misses. It was on the middle stump and he was plumb in front 411/10
    108.1 fuller and slower ball outside the off stump. Sandhu goes for the lofted drive. He gets the height, not the distance as he is caught at cover by Juneja 323/7
    110.1 That's five for Chintan! Fuller ball outside the off stump. He lofts it to mid-off where the sub leaps at the right moment and takes the catch. Mumbai imploding at the wrong moment 326/8
    130.5 good length ball outside the off stump. Dabholkar reaches out for it. He looks to defend it with hard hands. All he gets is an outside edge to Gohel at second slip. Looks like Gujarat will get to bat sooner than they expected 370/9

    29.4 and Nayar does it! He draws Gohel onto a defensive poke. He gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Tare takes the catch and the third wicket falls for Gujarat 89/3
    14.2 and there's the first wicket! Pitches one in the corridor outside the off stump, Panchal is drawn into a stroke. He gets an outside edge that Suryakumar catches to his left, at second slip. Panchal can't break Laxman's record, but what a Ranji Trophy he has had. 47/1

    18.3 and that's the second wicket. After getting the ball to move away, ball after ball, Sandhu gets one to move back in. Merai played the ball on line and shouldered arms, only to find the off stump pegged back. Mumbai, slowly but surely, crawling back into the match 51/2
    87.3 short ball down the leg stump line. He looks to go for the pull, but gets a top edge that Shardul runs in and takes. What an innings it has been. Edges, brilliant strokes, edge and more brilliant strokes. The people present at the stadium give him a standing ovation. Is this the opening that Mumbai are looking for? Is it too late? 299/5
    65.5 looks to sweep it from outside the off stump. He looks to have feathered an edge to Tare. Tare's celebrations after Juneja was given out were in the face of the departing batsman. Has Mumbai turned the game? 205/4
