TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.10)162/9
Fall of wickets: 1-46 (Rohit Sharma, 4.4 ov), 2-48 (Quinton de Kock, 5.1 ov), 3-92 (Suryakumar Yadav, 10.6 ov), 4-121 (Saurabh Tiwary, 14.1 ov), 5-124 (Hardik Pandya, 14.5 ov), 6-136 (Krunal Pandya, 16.1 ov), 7-151 (Kieron Pollard, 18.1 ov), 8-156 (James Pattinson, 18.5 ov), 9-156 (Trent Boult, 19.1 ov)
10.6 to SA Yadav, taken at long-on! Curran involved again. This looked a decent shot at first. Length ball at middle stump, full face offered as he lofted this. Nice sound and all. But it's taken well inside the line. 92/3
19.1 to TA Boult, loses his leg stump. Short of good length. Walks into the leg side and swings at that. Completely misses it. 156/9
5.1 to Q de Kock, straight to midwicket! Slow does it! Spin at the other end, and an offcutter here from Curran. Welcome to the UAE. Short of a length at middle stump, clears the front leg and slugs this straight to the fielder. It's gone slowly too, perhaps an indication that this pitch won't give you too much pace. He really swung hard at that but it sort of loops on the fielder by the end. 48/2
16.1 to KH Pandya, taken down leg side! Short ball cramps him at the hips. An awkward glance, off the inside edge. Dhoni stretches to his right and holds on low. 136/6
18.1 to KA Pollard, caught behind! They've come screaming back, have CSK. The rising awkward ball does it again for Ngidi. This is lifting in the corridor from a short length. Pollard has room, to be fair, and he tries to hoick it behind square. But it's a bit too quick for him and the edge is a straightforward catch for Dhoni this time. 151/7
18.5 to JL Pattinson, holes out to long-on. It's that slam-in length again, just short of a good one. Going across the left hander. He's backing away and doesn't have a strong base for this pull. Just catching practice by the end of it, well within the playing area. 156/8
4.4 to RG Sharma, chipped straight to mid-off! Full on off stump, wants to loft that over the fielder. Might have come off too at Wankhede. This pitch a touch slower. And Rohit's bad relationship with legbreak bowling continues. Taken at the edge of the circle and CSK's gamble has paid off. 46/1
14.1 to SS Tiwary, taken at long-on. Faf with the lob back in to take it on the second attempt. You'd pick him to be the man in that situation, wouldn't you? Certainly among the best in the world at this skill. Slog sweep for a length ball outside off, decently connected. Faf leaps up, lands inside safely, lobs it up, takes a quick step out and back into play and hangs on. Impressive knock from Tiwary though, he's set it up nicely. 121/4
14.5 to HH Pandya, Faf you stunner! Wow! What a fielder. This is flat and full, right in Pandya's arc. Which means he's absolutely smoked this, flat and to Faf's right at long-off. He takes strides across, jumps perfectly as it's in danger of whistling past him. Then the magic - the gentlest of landings after all the effort of sprinting and jumping. That landing gives him balance. and he hangs on, and is already in control as he comes down. Lobs it up as a formality anyway, but he had that down. Pure artistry from Faf, and he has changed the course of this game as of now.. 124/5

TOTAL19.2 Ov (RR: 8.58)166/5
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Shane Watson, 0.6 ov), 2-6 (Murali Vijay, 1.6 ov), 3-121 (Ambati Rayudu, 15.6 ov), 4-134 (Ravindra Jadeja, 17.1 ov), 5-153 (Sam Curran, 18.2 ov)
0.6 to SR Watson, massive appeal and he's given lbw. Won't review it. That is dead in front. Full and swinging in sharply from off stump. Watson looking to drive for the initial line. Front leg is in the leg side and this thuds into the back one. Long appeal and then a long wait before Virender Sharma lifts the finger. 5/1
1.6 to M Vijay, has him this time! But is that going down? It could well be...looks very good actually for a batsman's review. He doesn't take it. He's off and Faf has to actually catch him halfway back to try and talk to him about it. A full ball pitching middle, cutting in off the seam. He's beaten on the flick but there was a big deviation. Vijay was completely out of sorts - as he looked on the field too - and I wonder if that has affected his judgement. Replays suggest it was missing. He walked right off.. 6/2
18.2 to SM Curran, oh well taken Pattinson. More backpeddling stuff from Mumbai. Curran brings out the ramp, connects on it too, but Pattinson has kept his eyes on it running backwards before smashing the ball into his chest. The perfect T20 cameo from Curran - 18 off 6 is total value - ends with CSK in sight of a win. 153/5
17.1 to RA Jadeja, doesn't go well for Jadeja! This is plumb in front. Full and fast, no nuance from Krunal. It's fired in at middle stump like he's giving him throwdowns. Jadeja tries to flick that though and is caught right in front of middle. 134/4
15.6 to AT Rayudu, holds onto it himself after sprinting backwards! Superbly done from Chahar. It was coming all over. They were stepping down, swinging hard at Chahar who they clearly wanted to cash in on in his last over. This one lands at a good length, outside off. Rayudu ends up slicing it after not making the pitch. It hangs in the mid-off area and he keeps his eyes on it coming from over his shoulder and holds onto it. Confidently done as he ends his spell with Rayudu's wicket. A sensational knock from him. 121/3
