Commentary (Mumbai Indians innings)

That's it from all of us then. There are is a double-header tomorrow and this tournament is just about picking up the heat. Till then, farewell!

Rohit Sharma is the obvious choice for the Man of the Match award.

The first roller-coaster of the tournament. Turning from Sangakkara's controversy, it turned out to be one of the best chapters in Rohit Sharma's life. Two wonderful class-act performances from both the teams, Dale Steyn and Rohit Sharma. But Sharma won it with a six, just like he had done it in 2009 against Kolkata against Mashrafe Mortaza. The top-order was ripped apart by Dale Steyn but then Rohit Sharma stepped up to the plate, played an outstanding knock and won it for his team in the last ball. 18 were needed in the last over and Christian bowled pretty poorly.

19.6 D Christian to R Sharma, SIX! ROHIT SHARMA HAS WON IT FOR MUMBAI! MUMBAI WIN BY 5 WICKETS! What a match, what a player, a full toss and he smokes it over long on easily. Jumps in joy and the team is out in the middle to jump on him. Shaun Pollock was the first to get off the blocks to run on the field. Mumbai have won a humdinger here! 142/5

Mumbai need 3 runs off one ball. The first real close encounter of this tournament and anything is possible. Sharma, the saviour throughout this innings will take strike.

19.5 D Christian to R Sharma, RUN OUT APPEAL! Fuller length, driven down to White at long off and Sharma does well to get back for two with a full-stretched dive. Third umpire was called in and Sharma was just IN! Zoomed in replays show Sharma's bat was just in the air. 136/5

19.4 D Christian to R Sharma, SIX! High full toss outside off, Rohit Sharma gets it off the slice of the bat and it goes over third man. Mumbai look for the waist-height new ball but don't get it. 134/5

11 needed off 3 balls. Can Rohit Sharma pull off the coup?

19.3 D Christian to J Franklin, Wide outside off, Franklin cannot get bat to it and Parthiv cannot hit the sticks as Rohit Sharma dives. One risky bye taken. 128/5

19.2 D Christian to J Franklin, Short outside off, played away through covers for one. They take two and the throw from the deep hits Franklin. Hyderabad appeal for ball obstructing but they are wrong as Franklin was not even watching the ball. 127/5

19.1 D Christian to J Franklin, FOUR! But Franklin gets a boundary. Fuller outside off at 142.4 kph, Franklin drives it aerially over mid off and the fielder in the deep cannot get to it. 125/5

Daniel Christian to bowl now. Mumbai need 18 off 6 balls.

18.6 D Steyn to J Franklin, Short at 151.3 kph, Franklin manages an inside edge onto his pads and they take one. Strange, Rohit Sharma has been out in the middle and giving the new man Franklin the strike for the last over, is quite baffling. 121/5

James Franklin walks in at number 6. Mumbai need 19 off 7 balls now. This ball will be very crucial.

18.5 D Steyn to D Karthik, OUT! Steyn gets his fourth and he has been the sole reason for Deccan to restrict this total. Short outside off, Karthik only manages an inside edge onto his stumps. Steyn can do nothing wrong today and a loss would still not hide his contributions. 120/5

18.4 D Steyn to R Sharma, Short outside off, Sharma gets a bottome edge down to Parthiv. He hurls at the stumps. ALMOST hits it as Karthik runs back. Another run. 19 needed off 8 balls. 120/4

18.3 D Steyn to D Karthik, Real fast and now drastically slow, 121.1 kph, Karthik misses and they run the bye. 119/4

16.6 D Christian to R Sharma, Fuller length outside off, Sharma drives it down to long off for one. He is playing almost run-a-ball at the moment. 102/4

16.5 D Christian to D Karthik, Works it away through point and desperately makes it at the other hand for one. 101/4

16.4 D Christian to D Karthik, FOUR! Timing and skill from Karthik. Sees a full delivery, waits on it and deliberately guides it down to third man with an open face. That can't be taught, just cultivated. 100/4

Dinesh Karthik walks in now.

16.2 D Christian to K Pollard, OUT! The danger man Pollard is gone and Hyderabad have the most crucial wicket. Christian hurls in a low full toss outside off at 139.2 kph, Pollard once again looks to heave it away, but manages to sky it and Dhawan at long off takes the catch watchfully. 95/4

13.3 C White to K Pollard, Flicked away for one. 77/3

13.2 C White to K Pollard, SIX! That hung in the air like a parachute. It was heaved off a full delivery and Steyn stationed at the long on fence, waited for it for alteast five seconds but the ball kept on going over the fence as Steyn watched it over. 76/3

13.1 C White to R Sharma, Fuller outside off, driven to sweeper cover for one. 70/3

Amit Mishra to bowl now.

10.6 A Rajan to R Sharma, Drills it through mid off for one. 57/2

3.6 D Steyn to R Levi, OUT! What an over this has been and this is one of the best deliveries bowled in this tournament.

19.6 D Christian to R Sharma, SIX! ROHIT SHARMA HAS WON IT FOR MUMBAI! MUMBAI WIN BY 5 WICKETS! What a match, what a player, a full toss and he smokes it over long on easily. Jumps in joy and the team is out in the middle to jump on him. Shaun Pollock was the first to get off the blocks to run on the field. Mumbai have won a humdinger here! 142/5

Mumbai need 3 runs off one ball. The first real close encounter of this tournament and anything is possible. Sharma, the saviour throughout this innings will take strike.

19.5 D Christian to R Sharma, RUN OUT APPEAL! Fuller length, driven down to White at long off and Sharma does well to get back for two with a full-stretched dive. Third umpire was called in and Sharma was just IN! Zoomed in replays show Sharma's bat was just in the air. 136/5

19.4 D Christian to R Sharma, SIX! High full toss outside off, Rohit Sharma gets it off the slice of the bat and it goes over third man. Mumbai look for the waist-height new ball but don't get it. 134/5

11 needed off 3 balls. Can Rohit Sharma pull off the coup?

19.3 D Christian to J Franklin, Wide outside off, Franklin cannot get bat to it and Parthiv cannot hit the sticks as Rohit Sharma dives. One risky bye taken. 128/5

19.2 D Christian to J Franklin, Short outside off, played away through covers for one. They take two and the throw from the deep hits Franklin. Hyderabad appeal for ball obstructing but they are wrong as Franklin was not even watching the ball. 127/5

19.1 D Christian to J Franklin, FOUR! But Franklin gets a boundary. Fuller outside off at 142.4 kph, Franklin drives it aerially over mid off and the fielder in the deep cannot get to it. 125/5

THE TARGET FOR MUMBAI WILL BE 139. So, an innings marred with the controversy of Sangakkara's dismissal. Barring that, Harbhajan kept the brakes on early inspite of Dhawan going all cannons blasting. Munaf Patel bowled exceedingly well economically for 4 wickets and 20 runs off his spell. The Aussie hitters, Christian and White played handy cameos but it's not that big a total. Join us in a while.

19.6 K Pollard to A Sharma, OUT! Rayudu takes the catch. Fuller delivery at 125.8 kph and Sharma slogs it across with his front foot opening up, could not clear Rayudu at deep mid-wicket. Two wickets and eight runs off the Pollard over. 138/9

19.5 K Pollard to C White, Short outside off at 114.5 kph, heaved away to deep mid-wicket for one. 138/8

19.4 K Pollard to A Sharma, Gets down and mistimes it through mid off for a single. 137/8

Ankit Sharma is the new man in.

19.3 K Pollard to D Steyn, OUT! Another slower one decieves the batsman. Steyn looked to slog this full slow delivery and misses it to see his leg stump getting hit. 136/8

19.2 K Pollard to C White, Takes it on the full with a charge through mid-wicket for one. 136/7

19.1 K Pollard to C White, FOUR! Not intentional but anywhere will do for White. Comes charging down and heaves this short delivery, goes off the top edge over Karthik. 135/7

19.1 K Pollard to C White, Wide. Slow and wide outside off at 119.8 kph, keeps very low as White attempts to play. 131/7

Mumbai are out in a hurdle and the players are out. Parthiv Patel and Shikhar Dhiwan to take strike. . Harbhajan Singh to start off with the ball.

Hyderabad - Shikhar Dhawan, Parthiv Patel(WK), Kumar Sangakkara(C), Cameron White, Bharat Chipli, Daniel Christian, Dwaraka Ravi Teja, Anand Rajan, Dale Steyn, Ankit Sharma, T Sudhindra.

Mumbai - Richard Levi, Tirumalsetti Suman, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, James Franklin, Dinesh Karthik(W), Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh(C), Lasith Malinga, Pragyan Ojha Munaf Patel.

Toss - Kumar Sangakkara won the toss and HYDERABAD WILL BAT FIRST. Harbhajan feels that he would have batted first as well.

Hyderabad are bolstered by the return of Kumar Sangakkara, who comes back from international duties, not in good form though. Mumbai have won one out of two while Hyderabad lost their only match against Chennai.

16.4 D Christian to D Karthik, FOUR! Timing and skill from Karthik. Sees a full delivery, waits on it and deliberately guides it down to third man with an open face. That can't be taught, just cultivated. 100/4

Dinesh Karthik walks in now.

16.2 D Christian to K Pollard, OUT! The danger man Pollard is gone and Hyderabad have the most crucial wicket. Christian hurls in a low full toss outside off at 139.2 kph, Pollard once again looks to heave it away, but manages to sky it and Dhawan at long off takes the catch watchfully. 95/4

Munaf Patel comes back.

Ayaz Memon, tweets "Umpires blunder and I dont see why they shud not use the referral even if there is minute confusion.But that does not condone poor behaviour."

15.5 P Ojha to C White, White has driven it through mid on. The batsmen have run through for a single. 109/4

13.5 C White to R Sharma, Turned away in front of square for one. 82/3

13.3 C White to K Pollard, Flicked away for one. 77/3

13.2 C White to K Pollard, SIX! That hung in the air like a parachute. It was heaved off a full delivery and Steyn stationed at the long on fence, waited for it for alteast five seconds but the ball kept on going over the fence as Steyn watched it over. 76/3

13.1 C White to R Sharma, Fuller outside off, driven to sweeper cover for one. 70/3

Harbhajan comes back on.

12.3 A Sharma to K Pollard, SIX! No half measures for Pollard here. Gets hold of this short delivery and rifles it over the wide mid-wicket stands. Mumbai need a hit an over from now one. The run-rate is flirting with 10 an over. 67/3

12.1 A Sharma to R Sharma, Wide and some spin away from Sharma who fails to get bat on that. 60/3

12.4 M Patel to C White, Gets down and pats it down. 82/4

Cameron White is the new man in at number 6.

12.3 M Patel to K Sangakkara, OUT! Sanga has to go now and it's a sad piece of cricket this. Fuller length outside off, Sangakkara gets an inside edge which clearly chops back onto his off stump. Munaf Patel thinks he is out but the square leg umpire, Johan Cloete thinks that it came off Dinesh Karthik's pads. Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel, Dinesh Karthik crowd around the umpire, who are confident that it's out and have an animated, almost an angry altercation with the umpire to take it upstairs. Surely, they would be penalized for this. But the umpire still thinks it came off Karthik's pads. Munaf Patel was seen throwing the ball down in frustration. Finally, after a delay of around five minutes, umpire Cloete finally lets third umpire watch this and replays confirm that Sangakkara is out. The spirit of cricket once again puts across the same question. What is the level for which a fielding side can force an umpire to take it upstairs? 82/4

Some confusion on whether Sangakkara chopped it back on or the keeper, Dinesh Karthik hit the stumps with his pads. The Mumbai fielders are surrounding the umpires very angrily and it's an ugly sight out there.

12.2 M Patel to D Christian, Fuller and driven through mid on for one. 82/3

12.1 M Patel to K Sangakkara, Misses it outside off and the keeper fumbles to allow one. 81/3

Keiron Pollard walks in now.

11.2 A Mishra to A Rayudu, OUT! Mishra was lucky in first over not to have been plundered away and another horrible delivery this time but gets a wicket. It was a googly, a long hop and Rayudu could have pulled it anywhere. Still fires it straight to Dhawan at long leg at the ropes. 58/3

11.1 A Mishra to R Sharma, Punches it down for one. 58/2

Munaf Patel comes back.

11.6 K Pollard to K Sangakkara, Punches it away towards point for one. 80/3

11.5 K Pollard to D Christian, That's a costly miss by the Mumbai fielders. Slower one and Christian gets a leading edge and it carries towards the empty cover-point area. There is a lot of breeze and Harbhajan from cover-point, runs towards it but fails to see it at all. They take one. I have never seen Pollard so livid even as Harbhajan Singh smilingly signals that the breeze took the ball towards cover. 79/3

11.4 K Pollard to K Sangakkara, Fuller outside off at 123.9 kph, driven away to sweeper cover for one. 78/3

11.2 K Pollard to D Christian, Down the leg side as Christian does not hit it. 72/3

11.1 K Pollard to D Christian,SIX! That's sensational stuff from Daniel Christian. Short outside off, Christian had sashayed down, lifted his back foot off and gave it a powerful whack over extra covers for a maximum. 71/3

Amit Mishra to bowl now.

10.6 A Rajan to R Sharma, Drills it through mid off for one. 57/2

10.5 A Rajan to R Sharma, FOUR! Steyn cannot keep his name off when it comes to excellent pieces of cricket.

Steyn went for the catch after covering good ground but the ball fell short and his valiant attempt could not stop the ball going to the fence. 56/2

10.4 A Rajan to R Sharma, Full and slow, blocked down back to the bowler. 52/2

10.3 A Rajan to A Rayudu, On the pads this time again, clipped down to short fine leg for one. In fact a leg bye. 52/2

8.6 P Ojha to D Christian, Taps it down through covers for one. 55/3

8.5 P Ojha to K Sangakkara, Sanga survives. He swept it off the full length and it carried in the air, JUST short of Franklin at deep mid-wicket. Maybe Franklin should have attempted a dive. 54/3

8.4 P Ojha to K Sangakkara, Chips down the track but flicks it away to mid-wicket. 53/3

8.3 P Ojha to D Christian, Flatter on on off, guided down to short third man for a single. 53/3

Amit Mishra into the attack now.

Time out!

6.6 L Malinga to S Dhawan, OUT! Dhawan goes now but Pollard almost gave a scare to Malinga here. A fuller slow delivery at 128 kph and Dhawan is quite early into his flick and gets a leading edge. The ball swerves in the air towards Pollard, at point who was seeing it all the way through but in the end, has to dive to take it safely. Good fielding techniques on display this and Hyderabad have lost three now. 46/3

5.6 P Ojha to S Dhawan, SIX! That's 18 off the over and Ojha is disheveled. It was a quality shot this. He paraded down the track, did not get completely underneath it but still managed to flick it away off length over square leg. 45/2

5.5 P Ojha to S Dhawan, Flatter one and worked away to mid-wicket. 39/2

5.4 P Ojha to S Dhawan, FOUR! Ojha is not happy and is asking for Harbhajan for answers. A quicker one and Dhawan sweeps it in front of square through mid-wicket on a bounce for a boundary. 39/2

4.6 L Malinga to S Dhawan, The follow up from Malinga? A brutal yorker on the leg stump. Dhawan adjusts, almost falling over with a push towards mid off for one and dives in inspite e of a direct hit. The fielders want it to be taken upstairs but the on-field umpire is fairly confident that Dhawan is in. 27/2

4.5 L Malinga to S Dhawan, SIX! Amazing timing on that. A half-volley on the pads at 144 kph, Dhawan flicks it wristily over mid-wicket now. He as met the ball on his bat very well so far. 26/2

Ambati Rayudu is the new man.

3.6 D Steyn to R Levi, OUT! What an over this has been and this is one of the best deliveries bowled in this tournament. A seriously fast yorker at middle stump, Levi gets hit bat down late and the middle stump is uprooted. What a a bowler Steyn is. He is living upto his expectations of being a shadow of the yesteryear fast bowlers. 10/2

3.5 D Steyn to R Levi, On the good length at 148.1 kph, tucked away on a bounce to mid-wicket. 10/1

Fuller delivery on off at 146.8 kph, Suman drives it to the right of Steyn, his bowling arm, who gets down and the ball sticks to his right hand. He continues his ramp down the ground and throws the ball at the batsman's direction, who was clearly standing stunned. 7/1
