0.4 Perera's contribution to this game is over, after an almighty mix-up, both batsmen were nearly at the same end after Rahane screamed 'No' to Kusal call, Kusal kept going and there was no chance of him getting back, Kusal pushed that to the right of the diving bowler, not past the man at short extra cover, he kept coming though Rahane hadn't moved, awful from Royals 8/1
    16.1 Rahane goes and advantage Mumbai surely! Tossed up and he comes down the track and chips a low full toss that goes flat and quick down to deep midwicket 155/4
    11.5 Samson goes! He goes back and across at the crease looking to slice it away and he ends up spooning it down to short third man, Harbhajan back-pedals and manages to hang on cupping it over his head 117/2
    14.3 Pollard wins the battle this time! Watson was down the track and he lofted it several miles in the air down to wide long-on, Pollard takes the skier and he doesn't hold back his emotions 137/3
    16.4 Binny looks to slog and misses! Harbhajan fires it in and Binny misses and loses his leg stump, Harbhajan was really pumped up after that wicket 155/5
    18.2 Appeal for a catch behind and Pollard and Karthik look desperate! It was short and wide outside off and Yagnik had to leap to try and upper cut that, there was a sound and Karthik was certain he nicked it, as was Pollard, the umpire slowly walked up to his colleague to consult him and apparrently they came to a consensus about the height 169/8
    16.6 Appeals for a stumping and Karthik is quite confident! Flatter one outside off and Cooper looks to force it away with the turn over the on side, he misses and Karthik is quick to break the stumps, replays show Cooper's back boot was on the line but there was nothing behind it to save him, the third umpire gives it out after studying several replays 159/6
    17.4 and Dravid, like Tendulkar is bowled in his final innings! It was a yorker on the stumps and Dravid made room and his leg stump is flattened 163/7
    18.5 caught at deep midwicket and Mumbai Indians win their second Champions League! Pollard takes his third wicket in the over, Faulkner swings him down to deep midwicket and Smith takes it well in front of the rope 169/10
    18.3 caught in the deep, Royals have no choice but to go for everything, length ball and lofted down to deep midwicket, taken well in front of the rope 169/9
