Didn't somebody say - he refused to play after he saw how Gangu, Laxman and Dravid performed in T20? :p
 
G Smith stumped off Pollock
12-1 after 2.2 overs
Tanno not sent up the order. Y Pathan in

I'd rather he don't...he should save himself for the more serious versions of cricket.....Let the kids waddle in the dirt..(and slap each other)
 
Y Pathan bowled by Nehra. Still no Tanvir. Watson in
21-2 after 3.1 overs
 
I wouldnt mid seeing Tanivr being pushed up the order.

Rumours are that he can clout a ball a long way, but we are yet to really see that.
 
Watson in fine form here. He's been injured of late hasnt he, thats why he hasnt been called up by the Aussies for the training camp.

71 for 2 from 8.2 overs

cursed him. Bowled Bravo !
 
good job there. Kaif in and he probably won't last that long. They are holding Tanno back for last 4-5 over assault
 
some people are out 82-5 after 11.1
don't know if Tanvir was one of them. Warne is out there now. Tanno and Warne ki jori will take them to 130+
 
Good to see Mumbai coming in some sort of form. Somehow, that line-up always looked impressive to me...
 
good job there. Kaif in and he probably won't last that long.
Do you know what the lottery numbers will be tonight ? :)
 
102 for 7, in a spot of bother here.

Come on Sohail, launch a few into the stands.
 
Always play across the line. The first time i saw him in the T20 WC, he played almost all his shots across the line, against SA same thing, against India same.

Or is it just me?!

9 gone
 
Tanvir finishes with a SR of 100 and got the team score to 100 :125:. but some people (Aaqib Javed???) were saying he can bat. I have not seen him bat much except for hitting a six here and there
 
Wow..... Mumbai may win another one! Another upset in making - unless Sohail take another six wicket haul.
 
Tanvir needs 4 wickets this match. I hope he shaved today too to improve his aerodynamics
 
rajasthan need to lose to make it more competitive.. at moment, they on top by a lot of points!
 
It will be in the best interest of the Deccan Chargers that Mumbai lose today :p

other teams like Kings and Daredevils have to lose more to make it more competitive. Not Rajhastan which on paper probably had the weakest and cheapest team and has a Pakistani in it.

Actually they are so cheap that they don't have a coach as I read that Warne is also the coach. Which probably makes sense as Warne doesn't like coaches much

I see Sanath having a scorcher tonight!!

Nah actually Tanvir (if he opens) will get him 3rd ball...
 
IF Rajistan to lose today they'll be short of confidence when they play Chargers next.
 
Tanvir bowls the first over, 2 wides off it. Strangely, its Patel partnering him, should have been Watto, they need early wickets here!
 
4 overs gone 21/0
13 runs off the last (Patel!) over!
 
Wat did i say!!! Watto gets the breakthrough for Rajasthan, gets rid of Jaya 3rd ball he's bowled!! 41/1

Tanvir leaving it for last over majic. No wickets after 3 overs and 11??? runs
40-0 after 7 overs
Warne giving instructions to Watson oye wicket kay agay pheko
 
Bit of a thumping in the end. :(
 
Woho!!! MI on a roll here :D

The utmost job of a batsman when facing Warne is picking up his flippers. Ian bell can tell you that it is one of the most difficult delivery to pick. Yogesh Takawale learned it hard way today :))

TBH, I have tried bowling flippers like the King himself (in nets just as jest) and I sucked at it :15:

King Warne :D
