commentary

Keep all those heart patients away. Another night, another thriller, another chase from nowhere. Mumbai have done their usual bit of warming up, Rajasthan of keeping a fortress. It's back to the one-match-days from tomorrow. This was Vineet Anantharaman in the company of Pratyush Sinha, Sriram, Ramakrishnan, Varun Dikshit and our scorer Shashikant Singh bringing you all the action. Until next time, ta ta!!

Jofra Archer | MoM: It is good to be back on the park after missing the first few games. We just wanted to restrict them after it looked like they would get to 190. Stokesy had a chat with us at the half way stage and told us we needed to restrict them. That's exactly what we did and then chased it down (swag smile). It was a bit nervy coming to the end, when we needed 40 in 20, but with the talent we had in the line up we knew it would be easy. The heartbeat hasn't come down as yet; still pumping from that win.

Ajinkya Rahane | Winning skipper: I still can't believe what happened. I just want to give credit to my bowlers for the way they came back after 14 overs because it looked like they'd get to 180-190. But in the end KG's knock was unbelievable. In the time-out the plan was to take it deep. We knew we had hitters like Jos, Ben, Klassen and Jofra who could hit the ball a long way. We knew that we were always just two big shots away. Rahul batted really well at the top of the order last year, and that is the combination we wanted to go in with. It looks like we'll still continue with that. We are happy to see Jofra back, his spell and the way Jaydev and Dhawal bowled in the middle overs was the key. Jofra can bowl at 140+ and his pace and accuracy was amazing. He's always thinking about wickets and when you do that your mindset is always positive which is the way to go about.

Gowtham: On top of the world. I had a decent first-class year. The captain asked me to believe and that's what I did. It worked. You just need a good hit with 6 needed off 3 balls. That's what I was thinking when I denied the single.

Samson: How many ever runs you score, the man who wins the match for the team is the best (smiles). Very happy for Gowtham. Winning the game is the most important thing for me. Would not have mattered if I scored a fifty and got the orange cap in a losing cause. I need to finish games for my team.

Rohit Sharma | Losing skipper: Not easy, especially towards the end. Have to give credit to them; they played well. Not easy to score 10 an over given how the wicket was playing. I think (not finishing well with the bat) hurt us. We didn't capitalize on the start. Second or third time we have done that. I hope we can learn from the mistakes. Wasn't easy (towards the end of the innings), because they were taking the pace off but we needed to be smarter. It is not easy, which is probably the reason why I haven't been critical about my bowling unit. 20 runs more would have made the difference.

23:50 local: The thrillers refuse to die. Also Mumbai just can't seem to come on the right side of them. At the 14th over stage the Rajasthan were cruising, they had no business of taking this this close. And then Bumrah triggered a collapse, Mustafizur made it longer. But Gowtham, having only warmed the MUM bench for the whole of 2017 showed them what they'd missed. In a display of sheer timing which included refusing singles, not just slogging, he sealed it, with two balls still in the bank. But let's take nothing away from Samson, who did everything to set it up, and let someone else take the champagne. Mumbai have a lot to ponder, not least the lengths and the speeds they bowled in the final overs. It's almost turning into one of those situations of finding ways to lose from any situation. Stay on, interviews lined up.

6
Hardik Pandya to Gowtham, SIX, it's in the orbit. It's into the car park. And Gowtham turns hero - coming right at the climax, scoring at a strike rate of 300. Gets a juicy back of a length ball, in the slot and flat-bats it across the line. Into the clouds. And then cow corner

Another instruction bit from Rohit. What's on the cards?

19.3
0
Hardik Pandya to Gowtham, no run, does a Pollard. Can't beat extra cover with his push, doesn't want to let go of his strike
19.2
4
Hardik Pandya to Gowtham, FOUR, top thinking. He's spotted third man inside the ring, and ramps his bat out to shove it over. Wrong line, wrong length

Jaydev Unadkat, right handed bat, comes to the crease

19.1
0
Hardik Pandya to Jofra Archer, out Caught&Bowled!! Another twist. Agatha Christie would be so damn proud. Pandya lets out the bouncer, neatly directed into the head, and Archer's pulls in desperation, top-edging it high. Pandya takes matters into his own hands. Calls and holds his nerve. Jofra Archer c and b Hardik Pandya 8(9) [4s-1]

Hardik Pandya to Jofra Archer, THAT'S OUT!! Caught&Bowled!!

Hardik Pandya [2.0-0-15-1] is back into the attack

18.6
4
Bumrah to Gowtham, FOUR, goes pulling. And goes into the gap. Doesn't get enough meat, and thank heavens for that. It goes a lot finer, beating square leg in the ring. It's 10 off the final over. And you thought this was over, twice
18.5
0
Bumrah to Gowtham, no run, slower, cutting under Gowtham's lined up slog into the orbit. It turns, does it?
18.4
4
Bumrah to Gowtham, FOUR, utter disdain. Take that .. width, pace and it is back in that point zone. Thumped hard. How things turn
18.3
2
Bumrah to Gowtham, 2 runs, the free-hit's on the pad. Under the bat, but Mumbai's fielders day dreaming grabs them the second too
18.3
2
Bumrah to Jofra Archer, no ball, 1 run, the pressure. Massive overstep. A cool few inches over. Murdered back over his ducking running for cover
18.2
2
Bumrah to Jofra Archer, 2 runs, chipped up, taking it off his pads and lofting it to long-on
18.1
4
Bumrah to Jofra Archer, FOUR, very, very Caribbean. Okay former Caribbean. Archer transfer back, lets the ball get on par and waits on his drive, opening it to pierce the gap behind point. And that gap is huge
17.6
4
Mustafizur to Gowtham, FOUR, edge. And the Rajasthan have a massive edge of life. 15 off this one and all of a sudden there's oxygen still there in this one. A low full toss, across Gowtham, who throws his bat out in an attempt to slice. He'll make his peace with the edge, running past the keeper
17.5
6
Mustafizur to Gowtham, SIX, rocks back, deep in the crease, getting that front leg out once again. And targets the smallest part of the ground - cow corner. And swings. Smoking
17.4
2
Mustafizur to Gowtham, 2 runs, clears his front leg, carving it through the covers
17.3
1
Mustafizur to Jofra Archer, 1 run, slower one on the free-hit. And he's slogged it down long-on's throat
17.3
1
Mustafizur to Jofra Archer, no ball, over waist. Over the shoulders in fact. Wide outside off thankfully to cause damage. A yorker missed .. by a mile
17.2
1
Mustafizur to Gowtham, 1 run, not quite the bounce he'd lined himself up for. Mis-pulled towards long-on

Krishnappa Gowtham, right handed bat, comes to the crease

17.1
0
Mustafizur to Klaasen, out Caught by Ishan Kishan!! The bridge is falling. The fortess is falling in dramatic fashion. Klaasen gets himself a golden duck on his home debut. Fizz comes up with his go-to ball - a cutter slanting across. Klaasen with flat feet looks to drive away from his body, gets the customary edge and Ishan's diving low to his right to collect. Yes his black eye doesn't stop him from judging these perfectly. Klaasen c Ishan Kishan b Mustafizur 0(1)

Mustafizur to Klaasen, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Mustafizur Rahman [3.0-0-20-0] is back into the attack

16.6
0
Bumrah to Jofra Archer, no run, 147.7kph. Wow. It's a show guys. Yorkers don't get any better. Jammed down the pitch, not enough in it to go past Bumrah either. Archer getting a taste of his medicine
16.5
0
Bumrah to Jofra Archer, no run, closes it out. Full, blockhole, just outside off. 148kph. Can't squeeze
16.4
0
Bumrah to Jofra Archer, no run, no, no hat-trick here as well. Archer's behind the line, defending

Jofra Archer, right handed bat, comes to the crease

16.3
0
Bumrah to Buttler, out Bowled!! Perfect peach. And Rajasthan are well and truly doing a death over Mumbai. Bumrah's the Jofra in the remake. Nothing slow here, full paced, 144kph, hitting the good length, seaming in sharply and staying low to go through the bat and pad on Buttler's meek prod forward. Buttler b Bumrah 6(8)

Bumrah to Buttler, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Heinrich Klaasen, right handed bat, comes to the crease

16.2
0
Bumrah to Samson, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! It was all timing till it lasted. The moment it deserts him, he falls. It was Bumrah's famed slower gripper, Samson tries hoicking it into cow corner. Gropes only the toe-end, spoons high and Hardik runs in. Nah, he ain't messing these up. Samson c Hardik Pandya b Bumrah 52(39) [4s-4]

Bumrah to Samson, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

16.1
1
Bumrah to Buttler, 1 run, 131.7kph. On the shorter side, slapped under a diving extra cover. The RAJR's crept over 11

Jasprit Bumrah [2.0-0-9-0] is back into the attack

15.6
1
Krunal Pandya to Buttler, 1 run, backs again, but manages to keep it out with a knock down the ground. There's the old Pandya's spell - 4-0-33-1
15.5
0
Krunal Pandya to Buttler, no run, big dot. Spots Buttler making room and follows him in. Under the wild swing across

15.3
1
Krunal Pandya to Buttler, 1 run, pulls his length back, darting it quicker into the thighs. Glanced
15.2
1
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 1 run, tight lines on off. Clipped away, and long-on runs in to keep it to a single
15.1
2
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 2 runs, grips on a length, turning away slowly. Samson merely defends, and its into the vast mid-off gaps to pinch a couple. And a ninth T20 League fifty

Krunal Pandya [3.0-0-27-1] is back into the attack

Takes us to the final time-out. 50 runs. 30 balls. Seven wickets. With Klassen and Jofra to follow, the Rajasthan shouldn't have a shortage of tonkers to worry about the 10rpo required rate. Mumbai meanwhile have four of their five overs sorted out. And that one's been bowled out by Krunal. This should decide things.

14.6
2
Hardik Pandya to Buttler, 2 runs, flows through the line, finds a sweeping extra cover. But Samson's timing everything perfectly, his twos in particular
14.5
0
Hardik Pandya to Buttler, no run, skewed up drive, off the outside half in the miscue to backward point, where despite Markande's dive it ends up short
14.4
1
Hardik Pandya to Samson, 1 run, now delicate. Clipped away from the line of off. In front of square
14.3
4
Hardik Pandya to Samson, FOUR, latches on. It's that sitting up length, and Samson goes flat-batted, riding the bounce and timing the leather off it through cow corner, splitting the two men converging. In the hope of converging

Pandya's celebration - Poking his head in anger. Stokes' frustration - Banging his bat onto his head in anger.

14.2
1
Hardik Pandya to Buttler, 1 run, neat timing, driving it through down to sweeper

Jos Buttler, right handed bat, comes to the crease

14.1
0
Hardik Pandya to Stokes, out Bowled!! It's in the blockhole. Stokes has been walking all across, but has been getting down in time to dig things out. Until this one. It's full, it's into the base of leg, and Stokes' walked across, freezing in front of the stumps as he tries using the angle to swipe it behind square. Done in for pace. Done in for dip. This is exactly where Rajasthan need to avoid doing a Mumbai. Stokes b Hardik Pandya 40(27) [4s-3 6s-1]

Hardik Pandya to Stokes, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Hardik Pandya [1.0-0-7-0] is back into the attack

The equation: 58 runs in 36 balls. CRAJ: 7.86 | REQ: 9.67. This is where Mumbai messed it up. They've messed up the over-rates too. In an ideal world, we should've been done by now.

13.6
0
Mustafizur to Samson, no run, 133.2kph, foxes Samson for the lack of pace in the air. And he takes one hand off the handle as he drives it to cover
13.5
1
Mustafizur to Stokes, 1 run, 135.3kph, goes for the blockhole. Stokes has it on the full, bottom-handing it straight down
13.4
1
Mustafizur to Samson, 1 run, 124.3kph, leg-lined cutter going across. Swatted, with once again the crunchiest of timing. Picks out deep mid-wicket
13.3
1
Mustafizur to Stokes, 1 run, on the move, charge rather. Slammed down to long-off
13.2
4
Mustafizur to Stokes, FOUR, sits up perfectly. Stokes up there tall, already given himself loads of room and carts it over the covers. Nothing streaky here
13.1
2
Mustafizur to Stokes, 2 runs, slanting cutter. Stokes chases, swinging through the line, but with some extra bounce in it, gets a fat outside half sliced over cover doing his best to run back and reach

Mustafizur Rahman [2.0-0-11-0] is back into the attack

Mumbai's trump card #2 thrown out.

12.6
0
Bumrah to Samson, no run, 143.3kph. Low quick full toss. Driven back, and Bumrah mock throw threat is enough to send Samson backtracking
12.5
2
Bumrah to Samson, 2 runs, 119.9kph, slower, nipping back in from a shortened good length. Wrists. Mid-wicket. Brace. Predictable
12.4
1
Bumrah to Stokes, 1 run, pitched up on off. Dug out to a deepish mid-off
12.3
0
Bumrah to Stokes, no run, some cheek. Almost an Ishan in what he does. So he gets across to try scooping, realizes it is wide and decides to go into third man. Does neither
12.2
1
Bumrah to Samson, 1 run, that sound. High elbows, punching it on the up through sweeper
12.1
1
Bumrah to Stokes, 1 run, 139.8kph from over the wicket. Cramping Stokes up as he down on the move, opens up his drive towards mid-off

Jasprit Bumrah [1.0-0-4-0] is back into the attack

Mumbai play their trump card.

11.6
2
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 2 runs, and again. Oh he's toying around, why bother with boundaries when you can do this. The softest of hands in flicking it straight of mid-wicket. And then the legs
11.5
2
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 2 runs, delicately turned away in front of square. And Samson knows his field, measures, calls Stokes back. And perfectly
11.4
1
Krunal Pandya to Stokes, 1 run, slapped away through the covers, crouched
11.4
1
Krunal Pandya to Stokes, wide, another dart going across, absolute zero turn, surely not at the pace Krunal's been throwing them at
11.3
0
Krunal Pandya to Stokes, no run, width again. Stabbed out to point
11.3
1
Krunal Pandya to Stokes, wide, gets a step across his stumps, Krunal follows him dragging it wide. And he plays into Stokes' trap .. all he wants is the wide
11.2
1
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 1 run, 94.3kph, keeps it straight. Quietly knocked round the corner
11.1
2
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 2 runs, drifting into middle. Whipped down the ground, and long-on's sloppy

Krunal Pandya [2.0-0-17-1] is back into the attack

10.6
4
McClenaghan to Stokes, FOUR, now the overcook. McClenaghan tries sneaking in a quiet one, wide, full. Can't. Stokes' up there smart, reaching out and drilling it through extra cover. Here's the move on .. 16 runs in it
10.5
6
McClenaghan to Stokes, SIX, all the innocous-ity. 92kph, dug in half way into the pitch, turning into him down leg too. Stokes waits. And waits. And swivels, rejecting the wide to pull it into fine leg
10.4
1
McClenaghan to Samson, 1 run, a touch shorter, tucking him up for room. A meek pull, deep mid-wicket
10.3
2
McClenaghan to Samson, 2 runs, 121.9kph, slows it up, keeping it on a length this time. Samson uses the soft pace, with his soft wrists to nudge it in front of square. Massive gaps
10.2
1
McClenaghan to Stokes, 1 run, slow-sticking-bumper into the pitch. Heaved, all muscle. There's a deep square leg
10.1
2
McClenaghan to Stokes, 2 runs, runs at him, almost yorking himself in the process. Just about manages a tickle off the toe-end to fine leg

Mitchell McClenaghan [2.0-0-16-1] is back into the attack

9.6
1
Hardik Pandya to Stokes, 1 run, lack of pace has put a cap on the run-rate, that's for sure. Stokes waits and punches this to long-off
9.5
1
Hardik Pandya to Samson, 1 run, slowish and spinning in, Samson works it to backward square leg
9.5
1
Hardik Pandya to Samson, wide, Samson's confused him. Goes into an early shuffle and tempts Hardik Pandya into bowling a wide yorker outside off. But Hardik Pandya's overdone it and gets a wide against his name. Bowl that again, Pandya, because this is a batsman's game
9.4
1
Hardik Pandya to Stokes, 1 run, off-cutter angled across Stokes, who's brought his wrists into play last minute and whipped it to long-on
9.3
1
Hardik Pandya to Samson, 1 run, quickish length ball that Samson plays from the crease. Packs a punch through covers
9.2
1
Hardik Pandya to Stokes, 1 run, 121ks cutter that pitches outside leg and skids onto the left-hander. Stokes tucks it round the corner

Third man comes in and mid-off goes back, Hayden informs us on air

9.1
1
Hardik Pandya to Samson, 1 run, not the unlikeliest of balls. First ball of the spell and he's banged it in. But Samson's alert. Swivels and pulls that to backward square leg. Didn't look cent percent on top of that but he did the right things just enough

Hardik Pandya, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

8.6
1
Markande to Samson, 1 run, drifts it into the pads. Easy leg-side gimme. Samson keeps strike to deep mid-wicket. Rajasthan need 105 runs in 66 balls
8.5
0
Markande to Samson, no run, he's spinning it tonight. Pitches on off-stump and goes away, and Samson's in no position to play that. Is on the back foot as he tries to pinch that through covers, and gets it off the inside half back to Markande
8.4
1
Markande to Stokes, 1 run, slower googly this time. Stokes rocks back and slaps the ball to long-off
8.3
2
Markande to Stokes, 2 runs, steps out to a googly and pushes it to long-off
8.2
1
Markande to Samson, 1 run, now some turn. He wanted to turn it; you can see it from how he bowled. But it's slow and carved along the ground through cover-point
8.1
0
Markande to Samson, no run, drifts it in on middle and extracts a forward push back down the pitch from Samson

Time-out: They're doing it comfortably. 110 needed from 72 balls, and except for panic, Rajasthan should do it. There's a hell lot of ammunition in this line-up waiting to explode, so even if there's panic, we never know. Time for a refill..

7.6
1
Mustafizur to Samson, 1 run, he's covered the movement nicely. On his front foot to reach out and then opens the bat face to point. Quick single

Some sightscreen intruder..

7.5
1
Mustafizur to Stokes, 1 run, full and attacking the pads of Stokes, who's nicely held his balance on this flick. Single through mid-wicket
7.4
1
Mustafizur to Samson, 1 run, back of a length but it's a leg-stump line. Nudged down to backward square leg for a single
7.3
1
Mustafizur to Stokes, 1 run, was coming forward but is arrested midway. Adjusts and punches the length ball to mid-off
7.2
0
Mustafizur to Stokes, no run, Mustafizur is excited but that looks high. Traps Stokes on the shuffle with this delivery. Oh they've gone for the review. It's hit the knee-roll bang in front of off-stump, so the impact is alright. But as we doubted, the bounce in this Jaipur deck is taking the ball over the stumps -- the ball-tracking confirms. So not out it'll be and Mumbai lose their review
7.1
1
Mustafizur to Samson, 1 run, easily gets to the ball on his front foot -- Mustafizur is bowling the cutter from over the wicket -- and pats that through covers

Mustafizur Rahman [1.0-0-6-0] is back into the attack

6.6
1
Markande to Samson, 1 run, googly spinning down, Samson nurdles it to fine leg and keeps strike. I don't mind..
6.5
2
Markande to Samson, 2 runs, bowls it pretty full and outside off, and is driven through covers. Good from Markande there actually. Sees that the second run's gonna be hurried, and nicely gets into a position behind the stumps to gather that throw from deep extra cover
6.4
1
Markande to Stokes, 1 run, punches it away to long-off with the spin
6.3
2
Markande to Stokes, 2 runs, Markande resorts to the leg break that straightens within the line of the stumps and look what Stokes does: reverse-sweeps. Doesn't find the boundary, for it's been cut off at deep backward point, but Markande now knows what Stokes can do
6.2
4
Markande to Stokes, FOUR, this spins more, so this is the googly from back fo the hand. Stokes gets into a shape to sweep nicely and brooms it away through mid-wicket
6.1
0
Markande to Stokes, no run, skidder from over the wicket to the leg-side, finds mid-wicket

Mayank Markande, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack

5.6
4
McClenaghan to Samson, FOUR, that's why you can't not like him. McClenaghan strategy is pretty obvious: Bowl it slow and angle it across, because there's third man and backward point waiting to cut the runs off. And Samson here has found the tiniest of gaps between the fielders. Beautifully done, opening the bat face just enough to cleave the fielders
5.5
1
McClenaghan to Stokes, 1 run, single to mid-wicket this time. Could have been another slower delivery. Yeah, was

Ben Stokes, left handed bat, comes to the crease

5.4
0
McClenaghan to Rahane, out Caught by Krunal Pandya!! McClenaghan had pared down Rajasthan with pace, or the lack of it. Three slower deliveries in a row and that was it for Rahane. Takes it on with a flat-batted swat and all he manages is a toe-end to mid-wicket. Krunal's tall and leaps a little to take this screamer. It's a pun alright, because you should have seen Krunal screaming. Rahane c Krunal Pandya b McClenaghan 14(17) [4s-1]

McClenaghan to Rahane, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

5.3
0
McClenaghan to Rahane, no run, he's left his pace back in the dressing room. On the pads this time, Rahane finds square leg with his nudge
5.2
0
McClenaghan to Rahane, no run, another slower delivery that's been softly sliced to backward point
5.1
2
McClenaghan to Rahane, 2 runs, okay, lots happened here. Slower cutter that's angling away to start with. Rahane finds short third man with this glide, the fielder hits the stumps in riposte but Samson was home. And then they run another single off the deflection. So much for intent
4.6
1
Krunal Pandya to Rahane, 1 run, angled into the pads. It's a perennial square leg-feeder. Rahane's no different. Rajasthan need 132 runs in 90 balls
4.5
4
Krunal Pandya to Rahane, FOUR, proper Rahane. Early to load onto the front foot and then drills it away through covers. Nothing Krunal Pandya could have done, except maybe pitching it a bit shorter. But then Rahane might have come up with something else
4.4
1
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 1 run, full and flat -- the kind of ball you can't get under. Samson moves a little off-side and wrists the ball to mid-wicket
4.3
1
Krunal Pandya to Rahane, 1 run, went back to a flatter length but ends up whipping it wide of mid-on
4.2
1
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 1 run, sliding on with the arm, Samson works it to deep mid-wicket
4.1
1
Krunal Pandya to Rahane, 1 run, stopping onto Rahane, who delays his wristwork to mid-wicket
3.6
1
Mustafizur to Rahane, 1 run, stays in the crease and slices it to mid-off. The intention was to buy some time for the single, and he does that with an easy single on offer
3.5
0
Mustafizur to Rahane, no run, back of a length on leg-stump, but square leg intercepts it. No run
3.4
1
Mustafizur to Samson, 1 run, now he's just tried to find the gap here. In the late 120s from Mustafizur, Samson again is reaching across on his front foot but instead opens the bat face and runs the ball to deep backward point
3.3
4
Mustafizur to Samson, FOUR, full and wide, and the long-limbed Samson is not going to miss out. Reaches out, with footwork into a snooze, but who cares. It's all hands. Creams the drive through covers. Bullets it. Surgeons it. Whatever. It's Samson, okay? We're allowed to drool this season
3.2
0
Mustafizur to Samson, no run, 125ks ball that decks away just a touch. And it's troubled all right-handers in world cricket. A bit of an outside edge from Samson too, but does well to slice it and soften the impact
3.1
0
Mustafizur to Samson, no run, 134ks on a back of a length from over the wicket to the right-hander. And if you're not inundated by the tech details. I'll tell you that Samson's found the short third man with this attempted glide

Mustafizur Rahman, left-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

FIZZZzzzzzzz................

Samson's scores vs MUM in T20 League: 4, 0, 2, 74, 17, 76, 60, 6, 9, 0

2.6
0
Krunal Pandya to Rahane, no run, ends the over with a dot ball. Skids it on and into Rahane, who pierces it to mid-on
2.5
3
Krunal Pandya to Samson, 3 runs, slows the pace down and extracts that tiny bit of turn. But it's slow, and the line's wide, so Samson could stretch on his front foot and pat that through covers. Two fielders give the chase but the tag-team work's kinda okay. Samson races for the third
2.4
4
Krunal Pandya to Samson, FOUR, now what do I call that.. Will be an outside edge to the naive but this has been cleverly played late and just wide of the keeper. Bat face opens at the last minute and Krunal Pandya's grounded. Sort of. We'll see
2.3
0
Krunal Pandya to Samson, no run, full ball drilled towards straight mid-off

Krunal Pandya to R Tripathi, out Caught by Suryakumar Yadav!! Even Krunal Pandya cannot believe it. Gets that rainbow-from-this-palm-to-other pose dead right. A bit of loop after that first ball, and Tripathi middles this straight to mid-on. Straight to him. Would have wanted to go over the fielder but times it right into his hands. Well, this debut at the top doesn't go so well.. R Tripathi c Suryakumar Yadav b Krunal Pandya 9(8) [4s-1]

Krunal Pandya to R Tripathi, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Krunal Pandya to Rahane, 1 run, darted flat and full from round the wicket, Rahane works it to mid-on and gets to the other end

Krunal Pandya, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack

A good second over from Bumrah to make up for McClenaghan's assortment of deliveries in the first. Time for spin..

Bumrah to Rahane, 1 run, how late has he played that. Uses Bumrah's extra bounce outside off and glides it to fine third man

Bumrah to R Tripathi, 1 run, he's bowling from over the wicket and trying to bring the ball in, so every chance he'll splay it down leg. Like here. Easily worked to deep square leg

McClenaghan to R Tripathi, 2 runs, another slower delivery that's been beamed onto leg-stump. Better but not better enough. Two runs to fine leg

McClenaghan to R Tripathi, no run, angling across, Tripathi stays leg-side of the line and stabs it into the off-side

McClenaghan to R Tripathi, FOUR, there's a short fine leg in place but this leg-stump delivery deserves nothing less than a boundary. Tripathi crouches and glances it wide of the fielder at 45

I'm really looking forward to Tripathi batting here.

McClenaghan to Rahane, no run, goes full and across, and Rahane is leaning to his right in order to cover the stumps and get behind the line

Rahane and R Tripathi are at the crease. Rahane is on strike. McClenaghan will open the attack
