   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match : S Watson Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai (20 May 2011)

Last time when MI and RR met in Rajasthan there was a lot of off the field drama. This time they restricted that to on field in Wankhede. Batting first MI lost Suman and Rayudu to be 17/2 after 4 with 48% COW. However with Sachin and Rohit at crease they didn’t have to worry much. Slowly but steadily they laid a platform for an assault but Sachin fell with MI at 66/3 after 12 with 43% COW. Sharmadidnt get the expected support from the rest as MI struggled to hit the big ones and ended with 133/5 with 42% COW. Watson and Dravid then gave MI a lesson in batting as they smashed their bowler all over the park in an unbroken 134 run partnership that helped RR win the match by 10 wickets with 6.5 overs remaining.

  1st Innings (MI) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: MI 20/2 MI 47% You would have thought that Mumbai
      with their batting behemoths would go all out against the the meager attacks of Rajasthan, well no, Mumbai made a timid start that set the tone for the match. Mumbai’s chances decreased by 6% during this period.
arrow 10 overs: MI 55/2 MI 46% Rohit Sharma and Tendulkar got a
      partnership going but the pair still had a long way to before Mumbai were safe. Mumbai’s chances decreased by 1% during this period.
arrow 15 overs: MI 94/3 MI 45% Rajasthan made yet another use of their
      meager resources as Mumbai bar Rohit Sharma were stifled beyond recognition. Mumbai’s chances decreased by 1% during this period.
arrow 20 overs: MI 133/5 MI 42% This was Shane Warne’s last competitive
      cricket match and fittingly he bowled the last over and fittingly out-foxed Rohit Sharma who was neatly stumped as Mumbai ended with a sub-par total. Mumbai’s chances decreased by 3% during this period.
  2nd Innings (RR : Target 134) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: RR 37/0 RR 63% Rajasthan’s start was much better than
      Mumbai’s as Shane Watson and Dravid batted comfortably against Malinga and co. Rajasthan’s chances increased by 5% during this period.
arrow 13.1 overs: RR 134/0 RR 100% After Watson was clanged on the head
      by Malinga, he just went ballistic and all Dravid had to do was give him the strike and set him loose on the bowlers as Rajasthan romped to victory in Shane Warne’s final match. Rajasthan won by 10 wickets.
