MI: 116/5   | Overs 18.5 |   Maxwell 13*, Harbhajan 4 (Mumbai Indians win by five wickets)

MUMBAI INDIANS move to second spot in the points table. What an allround performance performance from Rohit Sharma’s side this. Bowlers were on the spot to restrict the Pune Warriors to 112 and Rohit led from the front to lead his side to a win. He was dismissed in the 19th over but he had already taken his side through by then. Harbhajan finished the formality with a boundary over covers. A strong win for the Mumbai Indians. They move one spot up to the second place in the points table.

MI: 112/4  | Overs 18 |  Rohit 37*, Maxwell 13*

The million dollar baby shows his worth. He slams a four and a six to reduce the eqution to level the scores with two overs remaining.

MI: 83/3  | Overs 15 |  Rohit 30*, Rayudu 17*

Rayudu gives Yuvraj the charge and collects maximum. That ball soured over the sightscreen for a six. Ten runs come from the over. The asking rate is exactly run-a-ball with 30 needed from the last five overs.


MI: 73/3  | Overs 14 |  Rohit 28*, Rayudu 9*

This low scoring game is bound to go till the final over. Six runs come from the Richardson over. Mumbai still need 40 from the last six overs.

MI: 67/3  | Overs 13 |  Rohit 24*, Rayudu 8*

Another singles-filled over. The batsmen are still not accelerating here. The asking rate is still under check at 6.57 runs an over.

MI: 63/3  | Overs 12 |  Rohit 22*, Rayudu 6*

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back into the attack and is hard done by a slice of luck for Rohit Sharma. A thick outside edge flies past the wicketkeeper to the third man boundary. A good over for the visitors, eight runs from it.

MI: 55/3  | Overs 11 |  Rohit 16*, Rayudu 4*

Parvez Rasool comes on.  Mumbai continue to deal in singles. Five from it.

Mendis bowls another good over. Karthik and Sharma are happy to see it off after taking just a single.

MI: 37/2  | Overs 6 |  Karthik 17*, Rohit 2*

Karthik gets lucky! He pulls a short delivery but he only manages a top-edge. To the fielding side’s horror, it is enough to clear the boundary for a six. A couple of dot balls later, he plays a glorious drive through the covers. A good over for the visitors,11 runs from it.

MI: 26/2  | Overs 5 |  Karthik 7*, Rohit 1* OUT! Tendulkar 15 (13)

PWI 112/8 | Overs 20 |  OUT! Nayar 11 (14) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar 2 (2)

Another lacklustre performance by the Pune Warriors India. Abu Nechim bowls the final over. He picks up two wickets. First to go was Abhishek Nayar who gave a simple catch to Harbhajan Singh at long off. That was followed up by a stunning one-handed catch by Dwayne Smith at long-off to send back Bhuvneshwar Kumar to finish the Pune innings on 112 for eight.


PWI 107/6 | Overs 19 | Nayar 10*, Rasool 2*

Malinga comes back for his final over and starts off with an inch-perfect yorker. Abhishek Nayar tries to cut loose but cannot clear the leg side boundary. Six runs from his last over.



PWI 101/6 | Overs 18 | Nayar 6*,  OUT! Richardson 8 (16)

PWI 88/5 | Overs 15 | Nayar 1*, Richardson 1*

Rohit Sharma brings back Mitchell Jonhson into the attack. He bowls a lovely delivery to beat the bat of his countryman Kane Richardson. Just three runs from the over.

PWI 85/5 | Overs 14 |   Nayar 0* OUT! Mathews 0 (2), Yuvraj 33 (29)

Two wickets in Harbhajan Singh’s over! Angelo Mathews is gone! A direct throw from Sachin Tendulkar! The crowd is going mad. Angelo Mathews is gone for duck. Two balls later, Harbhajan sends back Yuvraj Singh. Asad Rauf takes his time but rules it in Mumbai’s favour to adjudge Yuvraj leg before wicket. He falls for 33. Pune in big trouble for the umpteenth time this season. Just one run from the over.


PWI 84/3 | Overs 13 |  Yuvraj 28* OUT! Pandey 29 (29)

Malinga comes back into the attack. Mumbai’s fielding has been fine but their throwing has been off. They’ve missed a few genuine run out chances with erratic throws to the keeper. Jonty Rhodes will be making a note of it. Meanwhile, Malinga ends the over witha wicket off a poor delivery. A full toss is put away by Pandey but he cannot clear Ambati Rayudu at deep midwicket.

PWI 78/2 | Overs 12 | Pandey 27*, Yuvraj 28*

PWI 72/2 | Overs 11 | Pandey 25*, Yuvraj 24*

Yuvraj Singh gets into the act! Two huge sixes over deep midwicket. Much needed slogging this from Yuvraj. 14 runs from this Pragyan Ojha over.

PWI 58/2 | Overs 10 | Pandey 24*, Yuvraj 11*

Pune desperately need a move on here. Its all Mumbai Indians so far. Harbhajan bowls another good over. Just five singles from it. The home side manage just 58 for two at the half-way stage.

PWI 54/2 | Overs 9 | Pandey 22*, Yuvraj 9*

Ojha continues and gives very little away. Pandey and Yuvraj are being tied down beautifully here. Another over with just four runs from it.


PWI 50/2 | Overs 8 | Pandey 19*, Yuvraj 8*

Its spin from both ends as Harbhajan Singh comes into the attack. And he almost strikes in the second delivery.  He skids one through and Pandey fails to read it. It goes inches past his bat. Pandey is living dangerously. Even Yuvraj cannot put him away. A good start by Harbhajan. Just four runs from the over as Pune Warriors reach 50.


PWI 46/2 | Overs 7 | Pandey 18*, Yuvraj 6*

Pandey slams the first six of the innings to welcome Pragyan Ojha. He goes for 10 runs in his first over.

PWI 36/2 | Overs 6 | Pandey 10*, Yuvraj 4*

Manish Pandey throws his bat around and is lucky not be walking back home. He manages a boundary and Pune reach 36 for two in six overs. 

PWI 29/2 | Overs 5 | Pandey 3*, Yuvraj 4* OUT! Uthappa 11 (13)

Lasith Malinga — Mumbai’s new first change bowler — comes into the attack. Uthappa slams a boundary through point but Malinga comes back with a good inswinging delivery to trap him in front of his stumps. The wicket brings out Yuvraj Singh who starts with a glorious flick through midwicket for a boundary. 11 runs and a wicket from the over.


PWI 18/1 | Overs 4 | Uthappa 6*, Pandey 2*

A tidy over from Abu Nechim. Uthappa and Pandey can only manage four runs from it.

PWI 14/1 | Overs 3 | Uthappa 3*, Pandey 1* OUT! Finch 10 (11)

What a soft dismissal for Finch! Jonhson bowls a half-volley and Finch guides it to Dwayne Smith at cover. Two runs and a wicket from the over.


PWI 12/0 | Overs 2 | Uthappa 2*, Finch 10*

Assam lad Abu Nechim shares the new ball and he is getting a hint of swing. Finch takes advantage of the fielding restrictions and launches a length delivery over mid-wicket. Nechim is unfortunate to give another boundary off the last ball, when Finch goes for a big shot and an inside edge travels to the fine leg boundary.

PWI 1/0 | Overs 1 | Uthappa 1*, Finch 10*

Mitchell Johnson starts with a beauty to beat Robin Uthappa’s bat. Its hot in Pune and the pitch is slow but Johnson is getting the ball to bounce a fair bit. What an over first up, just one run from it.

Pune Warriors India skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to bat first against the Mumbai Indians in the 58th match of the Indian Premier League 2013.

The BIG news from the centre is that Glenn Maxwell finally makes his debut. The million dollar baby comes in for an ill Kieron Pollard. The Pune Warriors have five changes with Ashok Dinda, Manish Pandey, Abhishek Nayar, Kane Richardson and Ajantha Mendis coming into the side. The good thing is Parvez Rasool gets another game. He would be raring to go against the strong batting line of the Mumbai Indians.


Pune Warriors India: Robin Uthappa (wk), Aaron Finch (c), Yuvraj Singh, Manish Pandey, Angelo Mathews, Abhishek Nayar, Ajantha Mendis, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Parvez Rasool, Kane Richardson, Ashok Dinda

Mumbai Indians: Dwayne Smith, Sachin Tendulkar, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Glenn Maxwell, Ambati Rayudu, Harbhajan Singh,  Mitchell Johnson, Lasith Malinga, Pragyan Ojha, Abu Nechim
