15.5 superb yorker, let it rip there, bowled at 138.1 kmph, targeted the leg stump and hit, Quiney failed to bring his bat down, was too quick and the stick went for a walk 126/3
    6.3 spin does the trick again, the boundaries had dried up, the scoring had been kept in check and Smith went after it as soon as he sensed an opportunity, short on middle, went for a pull, connected well but got the direction wrong, plays it straight into the palms of Duminy at deep midwicket 43/1
    9.5 gone at the stroke of the timeout, happens for the umpteenth time, bowled it flat on middle, bent low and swept it straight to Malinga at deep square leg who dived forward to complete a well-judged catch 65/2
    19.1 smashes it straight down Bravo's throat at long-on, bowled flat and full outside off, swats it well but didn't get the desired elevation, Bravo runs in and takes it comfortably. Well, not quite, he just managed to clasp it as it was slipping out 142/5
    18.3 easy catch to Nayar at third man, banged it short outside off, went for the upper-cut, seemed he had connected well initially but not really, landed safe in the palms of the fielder waiting to pouch it 141/4
    19.4 goes for the reverse-sweep again and top edges it straight to short third man, Rajasthan have lost their way here at the death 144/6
    not out
    19.6 low full toss on middle, driven down to long-on for a single, attempts an impossible second and is run-out while running to the bowler's end 145/7

    1.3 an atrocious shot, bowled it short, Bravo was tempted, looking to pull it over midwicket, it swung away and he ended up miscuing it with a sliced bat high on the leg side, Munaf, and two others converged, but it was finally the bowler himself who clasped it with the others jostling for a chance as well. Awkward, but all's well that ends well 9/1
    5.2 edged and gone, Rajasthan are piling on the pressure here, slower one there, bowled short on the off, got some good bounce there, caught Takawale on the glove as he tried to keep it down off the back foot, lobbed up towards the keeper Ojha who dived forward to take a sharp chance 23/3
    4.6 flighted it, landed slightly short on leg stump, he got forward and tried to whip it through the leg side, the ball spun away to take the top edge and Raut at mid-on took a straightforward catch 23/2
    11.1 Warne does the trick, Rajasthan were testing his patience, bowled it slightly quicker on leg stump, tried to clear midwicket there but went off the bottom of the bat, was too early into the shot, and Yusuf at midwicket, right at the edge of the circle, rushed in to dive forward and take it inches from the ground 56/4
    15.3 he's got him! Is that the decisive blow?? The legspinner, bowled flat on middle and turned just a hint, Tendulkar got way across the line to sweep it behind square, missed and was rapped on the pads, Warne went up immediately and the umpire didn't take long to raise his finger, looked pretty adjacent 103/6
    13.1 he's dragged it on, what a timely blow! Short of a good length on the off, a hint of inward movement, tried to dab it down to third man, got an inside edge straight onto the stumps 76/5
    18.4 run out, was yorked on leg stump, tried to scamper a single after digging it out, didn't realise the ball was lying just short of the keeper, Ojha picks it up and clips the bails to find Nayar short 140/7
    not out
    19.2 yorker on middle, trapped in front, tries to dig it out in the leg side, is rapped on the pads and the umpire raises his finger, struck on the back foot and was plumb, would have hit middle and leg 142/8
    19.3 run out, Mumbai are committing suicide here, full toss outside off, tries to swing it away, gets a leading edge towards mid-off, tries to run through to complete a single, Yusuf Pathan at mid-off collects and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end to find Nanda well short 142/9
    19.5 run out, full on middle, squeezes it to cover and sets off for a single, he lobs a throw back to the bowler who throws down the stumps to seal a thriller!! 143/10

Match Notes

  • The brittle master

    Today, Sachin Tendulkar tried to make a laboratory experiment of his constant advice: Under pressure you have more time than you think you have. Delay the charge It was a high-risk approach that was enthralling to watch

  • Cool Rajasthan take humdinger

    After being slaughtered in the middle overs, a target in excess of 170 loomed for Mumbai Indians but the last five overs witnessed a comeback as Rajasthan Royals were restricted to 145 - a competitive total but perhaps a touch unsatisfactory given the imp
