yorker at off stump, backs away, exposes the stumps and squeezes it to sweeper cover's left...hobbles back for the second and wins it for his team
7.55pm With only five minutes to go for the Royal Challengers-Rising Pune game, I'm not sure we're going to get any feed from the Wankhede presentation. We do k know, however, that Nitish Rana won the Player of the Match award. Anyway, do pop over to our ball-by-ball commentary from the game at the Chinnaswamy. It should be a cracker!
SagarK: "So...Hardik remains not out for 5th consecutive time at close of MI Inning."
Yashwanth: "Mumbai are generally considered slow starters. But this year they are really cracking it right from the beginning just like they did in IPL3. Who will be CSK this year? :P"
7.41pm An unbeaten knock from Rohit, and one to steal victory for his team. That's 19 wins out 21 for the chasing team at Wankhede. Gujarat continue to look thin on the bowling and once more, that lack of depth has affected them despite getting a very good score. Rana the hero once again, and Hardik unbeaten yet again - but this time Buttler and Rohit chipped in too. An impressive win for Mumbai and they've plonked themselves at the top of the table. Four wins out of five.
yorker at leg stump, clears the front leg and pushes it with soft hands in front of long-on....where Jadeja runs it rapidly and picks up and throws to hit the stumps direct as Pandya returns. It's been referred....and he's not out.
Jadeja runs it rapidly from long-on and hits the stumps direct as Pandya returns. It's been referred.
oh great from Rohit. He has a sore knee, but he's bent down nice and low in anticipation of the yorker. Cuts the length on it, cuts the angle too. Takes it on the full and dabs it fine past the keeper
Mumbai need 8. Praveen will bowl the last over. Around the wicket.
full outside off stump, nice flourish on the cover drive, but it's straight to sweeper cover
slower ball, full at off stump. He has hammered this uppishly past the bowler's left hand. But once more McCullum is really straight
good length, angled down the leg side past his attemped flick
overpitched at leg stump, lifts it off the toe-end to long-on
slower ball, full at middle stump, flicked gracefully to deep midwicket's left
slower ball, full outside off stump. Throws his arms at this and gets it off the outside half of the bat, between backward point and short third man
Hardik ahead of Krunal. Hardik Pandya has scored 54 off 19 balls in the last two overs this season.
starts with an overpitched ball at leg stump, clears the front leg and tries to lift this over deep midwicket. He's got a lot of elevation on it but he can't beat Jadeja at deep midwicket
Tye will bowl the 19th.
Thampi and Malinga have bowled seven yorkers each this season - the most by any bowler.
sees Pollard walk at him. Adjusts and still finds the full length, but it's clipped off the toes to deep backward square
low full toss at leg stump, flicks it straight to deep midwicket
another perfect yorker. This slams into Pollard's pad but it has struck him outside leg stump. Big appeal, but it's a leg-bye to short third man in the end
yorker at middle stump, squeezed down to long-on
in the blockhole outside off stump. He squeezes it out to point and takes off, but Rohit's dodgy knee means he has no interest in this. Sends Pollard back. Kishan runs in fast but releases the ball a little too late. Doesn't hit the stumps in the end and it's an overthrow to deep square. Pollard was halfway down the pitch when he was sent back
goes for the yorker, misses, low full toss at middle stump that is driven straight to long-on
slower ball, back of a length outside off stump, drags it out to deep midwicket with a pull shot
knuckle ball, full at leg stump. Looks to whip this again, no timing. Thick inside edge to long leg
full and fast at leg stump, no feet, whips it wide of long-on who is also quite straight for Pollard
back of a length outside off, slower ball sits up nicely and he flat-bats this straight over the bowler. McCullum very straight at long-off and leaps up to his right, but it's too powerful
