Champions League Twenty20 - 15th match, Group B

Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers Bangalore

Mumbai Indians won by 2 runs

0.1

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, lovely curl away from the left hander, Dhawan stays in the crease and pokes it out to covers

0.2

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, you gotta be really lucky to get away with something like that! Extra bounce, and a touch slow off the deck from Praveen, Dhawan is early into the shot and gets a leading edge that balloons up and somehow lands safe square on the off side

0.3

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, bit of bounce on offer here, Dhawan is not too comfortable as he stays back and plays it as it comes into him

0.4

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, Praveen takes this one out, Dhawan spots the movement and times the backfoot cover drive quite well, but no placement

0.5

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, stays well back and opens the face, looking for a dab to third man, but straight to Kohli at backward point

0.6

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, crunched off the backfoot and quite a spectacular save from Cameron White, diving full length to his right to stop that screamer, giving PK a maiden

Mumbai Indians 0/0   S Dhawan 0* (6b)

1.6

Vinay Kumar to Dhawan, 1 run, cheeky single from Dhawan to get off the mark, taps the shortish ball on off stump to mid off and takes off

Mumbai Indians 6/0   S Dhawan 1* (7b)

2.1

Kumar to Dhawan, SIX, as the old saying goes - "Why fix it if it ain't broke?" Praveen had Dhawan in lots of strife from over the wicket in his opening over, but now goes around and angles a friendly short ball into Dhawan's body. He happily swings oit over midwicket for six.

2.2

Kumar to Dhawan, 1 run, back of a length outside off, Dhawan taps to the off side, scurries across for one and then thinks of coming back for a non-existent second. The throw goes to the keeper, who fires it at the non-striker's but misses. Dhawan and Praveen get into a mess as well!

Mumbai Indians 13/0   S Dhawan 8* (9b 1x6)

3.5

Vinay Kumar to Dhawan, 1 run, back of a length on the pads and Dhawan taps it to where Kohli came from, for a single

Mumbai Indians 24/2   S Dhawan 9* (10b 1x6)

4.1

Kumar to Dhawan, 1 run, taps it off the pads for a quick single. Throw hits Duminy on the thigh

4.3

Kumar to Dhawan, 1 run, this one is on middle and leg, Duminy stays back and flicks it in front of square

4.5

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, looking for another one of those soft-handed singles into the covers. This one goes straight to the fielder though

4.6

Kumar to Dhawan, FOUR, finally gets one away. Dhawan again comes across to the off stump, it angles nicely into him and he pulls it comfortably behind square for a four.

Mumbai Indians 34/2   S Dhawan 15* (14b 1x4 1x6)

6.2

Kumar to Dhawan, no run, whoa, what happened there? Praveen bangs it in really short, Dhawan who had come down the pitch was in no position to do anything. Tried to upper cut it, but probably made no contact.. and Uthappa failed to colelct over his head.

6.3

Kumar to Dhawan, 1 leg bye, goes for a pull to a ball not short enough, gets something on it and picks up a quick single

6.5

Kumar to Dhawan, 2 runs, back of a length outside off, worked away square off the backfoot and they run like men possessed to take two. Bad throw from the deep makes it easy, Vinay was the culprit

6.6

Kumar to Dhawan, 1 run, Praveen finishes an efficient spell with one angling across from middle and off, it is tamely patted to the left of point for another single

Mumbai Indians 42/2   S Dhawan 18* (18b 1x4 1x6)

7.1

Kumble to Dhawan, 1 run, Dhawan responds with another surprising shot - the reverse sweep from middle and leg. Good thing he got an inside edge, else he would have been dead plumb

7.3

Kumble to Dhawan, 1 bye, UThappa misses a stumping! Dhawan comes out of the crease, yorks himself with a half volley and misses. So too does Uthappa. A clean collection and he would have had Dhawan well short

7.6

Kumble to Dhawan, 1 run, makes room by moving to leg and cuts the short ball away towards point for one

Mumbai Indians 50/2   S Dhawan 20* (21b 1x4 1x6)

8.1

Kallis to Dhawan, 1 run, starts with a half-volley on the pads that is not capitalised on. Flicked straight to deep square leg

8.3

Kallis to Dhawan, 2 runs, gets this one away to deep third man and another tight run couple

8.4

Kallis to Dhawan, no run, full on middle, Dhawan walks across and looks to swing it away. Can't make contact.

8.5

Kallis to Dhawan, 1 wide, 139.9 kph, Kallis does not like seeing Dhawan chipping out so fires in a bouncer that takes off and Uthappa has to leap to collect it

8.5

Kallis to Dhawan, 1 run, if today is not Dhawan's day, then which day is? Length ball on off stump, Dhawan is a year early on the drive and scoops it straight up to the off side to the right of where the non-striker should be. Kumble and Praveen come from mid off and cover. And fail to reach it before it lands

Mumbai Indians 55/3   S Dhawan 24* (25b 1x4 1x6)

9.1

Kumble to Dhawan, 2 runs, short ball from Kumble, it is pulled gingerly out to deep midwicket for a couple

9.2

Kumble to Dhawan, (no ball) 1 run, Aha! Kumble over-steps, Just about on the line there. Length ball on off stump, Dhawan has another life! Lofts it straight to Akhil at long off, who is happy after catching it.. And then he sees his captain yelling at him to throw it back. The batsmen take a single

9.4

Kumble to Dhawan, 1 run, Dhawan chips out and drives it on the run to deep midwicket for one

9.6

Kumble to Dhawan, 1 run, outside leg stump, Dhawan sweeps but can't beat the deep fine leg fielder.

Mumbai Indians 65/3   S Dhawan 29* (29b 1x4 1x6)

10.1

Steyn to Dhawan, 1 run, short of a good length on the off, drops it on the side of the pitch and races through for a single

10.4

Steyn to Dhawan, 1 leg bye, shortish on leg stump, shuffles across to whip it fine, struck on the thigh, they get a leg bye

10.6

Steyn to Dhawan, no run, short on middle and leg, shapes up to play the pull, a touch too quick again, is struck on the thigh, nice start from Steyn

Mumbai Indians 69/3   S Dhawan 30* (32b 1x4 1x6)

11.2

Kallis to Dhawan, SIX, length ball and his picks it beautifully, just a fraction wide, has enough room to free his arms and he smashes that into the stands behind midwicket

11.3

Kallis to Dhawan, 1 run, slower one bowled short on middle, gets across and taps it towards Cameron White at point, races through for a quick single after some hesitation

11.5

Kallis to Dhawan, FOUR, mid-off is in and that was easily done, full outside off again and he lofts him cleanly over the in-field for a one bounce four

11.6

Kallis to Dhawan, no run, shortish outside off, goes for the pull, misses, a productive over for Mumbai

Mumbai Indians 82/3   S Dhawan 41* (36b 2x4 2x6)

12.3

Steyn to Dhawan, OUT, he picks out midwicket, Steyn delivered the slower one this time, Dhawan, looking to improvise, walked well across and tried to flick that over the in-field, didn't time it well enough, offered an easy catch to Dravid

Mumbai Indians 83/4   S Dhawan 41 (37b 2x4 2x6)
