    3.1 bowled him! Jacobs tried to hit the ball down the ground again, planting his foot forward and aiming for wide long-on, he missed and Amit hit middle stump 22/1
    4.2 there won't be any of Tendulkar v Warne today! Menaria's got him! Tendulkar charged the bowler, Menaria tossed it up and slowed it down, Tendulkar swung hard and connected with nothing, easy stumping 28/2
    8.4 caught and bowled! Rayudu gives Menaria the charge, the bowler sees him coming and shortens his length, the ball comes on rather slowly and Rayudu ends up tapping it back to the bowler 46/3
    9.6 caught at long-off! Sharma plays the lofted drive but doesn't place it high enough or wide enough to beat Johan Botha on the boundary, the Mumbai juggernaut is losing steam in Jaipur 50/4
    17.1 bowled him! Symonds went down on one knee to slog sweep and then tried to adjust and play a half-swat half-paddle, the ball pitched around off, came slowly off the pitch, beat the bat and pegged back off stump. That kept a touch low as well 81/6
    15.3 Pollard's struggle has ended. He moved a long way across his stumps to play the offbreak towards square leg, he missed and was hit plumb in front, Botha was so sure that he was celebrating before the umpire raised the finger 68/5
    17.3 stumped! Mumbai are sliding towards a shocking total at the fortress. Sathish charged and heaved, trying to hit the ball far too hard without getting anywhere near it. He missed and the keeper had an easy stumping to effect 82/7
    not out
    18.1 bowled him! Someone hits Malinga's stumps for a change. Malinga backed away towards leg to pull a short of a length ball. He exposed all three stumps, and Amit Singh gratefully hit the top off off and middle 83/8
