7th T20,Group B: Mumbai Indians v South Australia (Winner: SA)

MI 180/7 (S Tiwary 44, A Rayudu 38, K Pollard 36, A O'Brievn 49/2) lost to South Australia 182/5 (D Harris 56, M Klinger 50, L Malinga 22/2, A Murtaza 29/2) by 5 wickets with 3 balls remaining.

   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: D Harris Kingsmead, Durban (14 Sep,2010)

Mumbai Indians were favourites to win this one despite their poor performance in last match. After an early wicket and slow start Sachin and Rayudu started dictating the game before Sachin got out. When Duminy soon followed him back they were 49/3 in 8 with a COW of 45% and at half way stage looked set for a disappointing total. But amazing counter attack by Rayudu and Tiwary followed up with some monstrous hitting by Bravo and Pollard propelled them to 180 runs in 20 overs with a COW of 57%. It finally seemed Mumbai Indians had shown their true firepower and blasted the opposition out of the match, but people had forgotten about two factors –Sachin’s Captaincy and MI’s poor fielding. And they both combined to turn the match in Redbacks’ favour. MI’s refusal to take catches meant Redbacks reached 111/0 overs but with RRR being high it their COW was still at 40%. But poor bowling changes, erratic bowling and more misfields meant that other batsmen were able to capitalize on Klinger and Harris’ good work to take them home in 20th over.

  First Inns (MI)  
arrow 5 Overs: MI 31/1 MI 51% Mumbai lost the wicket of Dhawan

arrow 10 Overs: MI 59/3 SA 56% Mumbai lost the important wickets
      of Tendulkar and Rayudu, and at this point, it was not a good position to be in. Mumbai Indian’s chances decreased by 7% during this period.
arrow 15 Overs: MI 112/4 MI 50% The partnership of 2 big-hitters in
      Saurabh Tiwary and Kieron Pollard proved to be very fruitful for Mumbai as their run-rate shot above 7. Mumbai Indian’s chances increased by 6% during this period.
arrow 20 Overs: MI 180/7 MI 57% Kieron Pollard and his perennial
      team-mate Dwayne Bravo made hay during the death overs as Mumbai reached a huge total. Mumbai Indian’s chances increased by 7% during this period.
  Second Inns (SA: Target 181)  
arrow 4 Overs: SA 18/0 MI 62% South Australia started quite
      cautiously,but did not lose any wickets. South Australia’s chances decreased by 5% during this period.
arrow 9 Overs: SA 64/0 MI 61% Although the required run-rate was
      going up, South started to improve their run-rate. South Australia’s chances increased by 1% during this period.
arrow 14 Overs: SA 113/1 MI 62% South Australia lost their first wicket
      but the run-rate was quite high. South Australia’s chances decreased by 1% during this period.
arrow 19.3 Overs: SA 182/5 SA 100% South Australia’s policy of keeping
      wickets in hand paid dividends but the incredible hitting of Borgas and Cooper deserve a mention as does the inept field of Mumbai. South Australia won by 5 wickets.
