7.6 caught in the deep this time! Simmons tries to blast over the cover boundary but mis-times it, he ends up slicing it in the air and Parnell comes running in from the deep and take s a well-judged catch on the move. Tahir's celebrations are characteristically exuberant 87/1
    11.6 whoa. Why did they run for that? back of a length, Rohit waits, opens his face, and dabs it to Jadhav at point. He throws to the keeper's end, and DK has disturbed the stumps with Hussey short of the crease. The bails come off fully with his bat just short, almost on the line 120/2
    14.2 bowled him! A poor choice of shot from Rohit. He backed away outside leg to cut a fuller ball that was following him and cramping him for room. He missed, and leg stump took a hit 140/3
    14.4 caught behind! Unadkat has jolted this innings out of the blue. Pollard cannot believe he has been given out, and I am not sure why he seems confused. Unadkat bowled full, in the blockhole outside off stump, Pollard tried to squeeze it out on the off side but his bat hit the ground first and then the ball went off the outside edge to the keeper 141/4
    15.4 Rayudu steps out and lofts the ball straight to M Vijay at long-off. Vijay did not have to move at all and he took it really casually. Rayudu had not got to the pitch of the ball and ended up slicing it 151/5
    16.3 what on earth are Mumbai doing? Tare moves forward, gets down on one knee and slog sweeps the ball straight to Kedar Jadhav at deep midwicket. Jadhav came forward and got down on his knees to take the catch. It was the googly that did Tare in 157/6
    17.2 Mumbai are giving Delhi catching practice. Harbhajan simply lofts a length ball through the line, hitting it straight to Vijay at long-off. This is some exceptionally ordinary batting 161/7
    19.3 Mumbai's innings ends in shambles. Parnell bounces Bumrah, who tries to pull and is beaten. The square leg umpire begins to call the ball wide for height, but Gopal calls Bumrah through to try and get on strike by stealing a bye. Karthik hits the stumps and Gopal is not even in the frame 173/10
    18.2 De Lange looks unhappy with the decision to give him out caught behind. He tried to reverse sweep a full ball outside off stump - how's that for shot selection in this position? - and missed. Not sure if he edged it into Karthik's gloves because the sound seemed to come from the bat hitting the ground. There might have been some glove on it 168/8
    18.6 it's all happening out there! Gopal charges down the pitch and slogs, the ball flies off the outside edge but falls short of Unadkat at short third man. The ball deflects off Unadkat towards Tiwary at point. The batsmen hesitate and the throw comes to the keeper quickly. Ojha is well short 171/9

    5.2 Vijay's been stumped! A nothing shot from him. He got out of his crease but was no where near the pitch of the ball. It dipped on him, and he swung in desperation as the ball spun away and beat the outside edge. Tare had the bails off in a flash with Vijay's back foot out of the crease 43/1
    8.5 KP's been bowled while trying to switch-hit! Harbhajan slowed it up and bowled straight. KP switched and swung too early, the ball dipped on him beat the bat and hit the stumps 59/2
    9.4 When a tall fast bowler is delivering at 140 kph plus, moving across your stumps towards the off and exposing all of them while trying to scoop is probably not the best choice of shot. Karthik tried it and his middle and leg stumps took a hit 61/3
    18.3 he's skied this, it's swirling in the evening sky and when the ball comes down Michael Hussey is right under it ... Tiwary had cleared his front foot to slog and ended up slicing the good length ball 146/4
