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


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


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


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


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


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   P Kumar 1-1-0-0

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.


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!


Kumar to Tendulkar, 2 runs, Sachin walks across, he wants to ping the leg side boundary desperately. Gets it away this time from off stump for a couple behind square


Kumar to Tendulkar, FOUR, and again, Sachin is on off stump and the ball well outside when he connects with the pull., Not the greatest piece of timing, but it is places between midwicket and mid on. Four more.


Kumar to Tendulkar, OUT, Praveen nets the big fish! Good delivery on the channel, it had Sachin fishing, he chose to defend to the off side - probably would have been better off walking across as he did previously. Faint outside edge and it finishes in the delighted Uthappa's gloves.

SR Tendulkar c †Uthappa b Kumar 11 (11m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 137.50


Kumar to Rayudu, 1 run, wide outside Rayudu's off stump and he throws everything at it. Flies down to deep third man for one

Mumbai Indians 20/1   P Kumar 2-1-14-1

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


Kumar to Duminy, 1 leg bye, Duminy again is looking to go across and cross-bat to the leg side. Concerned about the extra bounce? Can't quite connect.


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


Kumar to Duminy, 1 run, full on the pads, and driven without much power to mid on for another single


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


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   P Kumar 3-1-21-1

Kumar to Duminy, 1 run, back of a length, angling from leg stump to off, it is tapped to the off side and they take off for a single. Kohli from cover and Praveen converge on the ball, Kohli fires a throw towards the stumps, but the batsman is in the way. Phew, so much action for a single!


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.


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


Kumar to Duminy, 1 run, fuller on the pads, worked off the legs for a single to midwicket


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


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   P Kumar 4-1-26-1
