So final over of Mumbai innings and Bravo to shoulder the responsibility. On strike is new man Mitchell Johnson. OUT! And he has nicked the first ball from Bravo. Dhoni has taken it cleanly. Bravo is delighted! Johnson goes back for a duck. In walks Lasith Malinga. And he greets the Sri Lankan with a bouncer. OUT! Off the next, Bravo gets his fourth wicket after Malinga is caught by Dhoni after edging the third. In walks Pragyan Ojha. Pollard is livid. He is still off strike. Now, Ojha on strike. He somehow manages to steal a single largely thanks to Pollard who was already running as soon as the ball was delivered. And he shows why he wanted the strike so badly as he ends the innings with two powerful strokes for consecutive maximums! The first one straight over bowler's head while the next over long on. What a finish to the innings. An eventful over this from Bravo. 13 runs and two wickets in it.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 19 II Score: 135/7

Morris to bowl the penultimate over of Mumbai innings. A single to start with. Good thing for Mumbai is that Pollard has the strike now. He can only manage a single. He was looking for a second though but changes his mind for good. OUT! Rishi Dhawan is run out. He scored 3 (3b). Dhawan on strike and he completes a couple. They attempted a third as the Dhoni failed to collect the throw. However, a miscommunication between Pollard and Dhawan let the latter being run out at the bowler's end courtesy an alert fielding from Mohit Sharma. Six runs from the over. ================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 18 II Score: 129/6

Bravo into his third over. He starts it with a wide. Off the next, Bhajji gets a boundary as the ball eludes Dhoni after taking an outside edge. Bravo isn't pleased.

The next is full and outside off, Bhajji guides it to third man region for yet another boundary. He is turning the heat on! And OUT! Bhajji has been caught by Michael Hussey at sweeper cover. He scored 14 (8b, 4X3). He made some room and ended up playing it straight into the hands of Hussey. In walks Rishi Dhawan.

Mumbai Indians Over: 16 II Score: 106/5

Dwayne Bravo into his second over. And straight after the time out, Bravo strikes! The first delivery of the 16th over and Rayudu's middle stump goes for a walk. Rayudu came down the ground and wanted to drive this through cover but the ball eluded him and he was cleaned up. The batsman is gutted as he walks back to the dug out after scoring 37 (36b, 4X4). In walks Harbhajan Singh who gets off the mark with a single off his first delivery. Bravo's third delivery is full and Pollard punches it hard and it races past the bowler for a boundary. That shot brings Dhoni to place a fielder at mid on - right from where Bravo begins his run up. The next is a slower one and gets hit on the unmentionables. He still manages to offer a smile but looks in some pain. Six runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 15 II Score: 100/4

Jadeja is back. And a boundary to Pollard as Murali Vijay puts in a valiant effort at sweeper cover but cannot prevent that from reaching the fence.

Not a very convincing shot though but he'll take it. A single off the sixth dleivery takes the score to 100-run mark. 10 runs from the over.

================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 13 II Score: 84/4

================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 12 II Score: 74/4

Ravindra Jadeja into the attack now. He is sporting a mustache. His second delivery produces an edge and just like on the previous occasions today, this one also runs down to the third man fence for a four. In fact, it is a dropped catch as the Ashwin fails to gobble it. Nine runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 11 II Score: 65/4

Ashwin continues. Facing him is Rayudu. A cut through point and a single to Rayudu. Pollard comes on strike and CSK put a slip from him. Pollard takes a single off the second. The fourth delivery is floated up and Rayudu plays it over extra cover region for a four. Seven runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 10 II Score: 58/4

Morris continues. A single off his second delivery brings Karthik on strike. His next is a wide and he immediately apologies to Dhoni for that. And OUT! Morris has bowled Karthik. He was looking to drive this one but a thick inside edge and the ball took off the bail. Morris is delighted! Karthik scored 21 (26b, 4X3). In walks Kieron Pollard. And the big man gets off the mark with a four as he pushes it back past the bowler's end to long off. Eight runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 9 II Score: 50/3

Spin in R Ashwin introduced. Five singles from his first over. The fifth from the tweaker was a carrom ball and Rayudu failed to pick it up and got beaten. MI reach 50-run mark. Time for a strategic break.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 8 II Score: 45/3

Chris Morris introduced into the attack. Two runs off his first delivery as Rayudu plays it through backward point region. The next is a bouncer and Rayudu leaves it. The over ends with a couple to Karthik as an overthrow from Raina allows MI to add one more to their total. Five runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 7 II Score: 40/3

Mohit Sharma to bowl his fourth and final over. On strike is Karthik. He picks a single off the first. Rayudu edges the third delivery and it runs down to third man fence for a boundary. Six runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 6 II Score: 34/3

Morkel continues. Rayudu hits the third delivery over the bowlers' head and scores a boundary. Off the fourth delivery, Rayudu uses his wrists to send that to deep midwicket fence for another boundary. Nine runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 5 II Score: 25/3

Mohit Sharma into his third over. Karthik ended Mohit's last over with a boundary and he begins the fresh over with another boundary. He punches the first delivery through covers and scores a boundary. A brilliant effort by Dwayne Bravo off the final delivery at point saves a certain boundary. Seven runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 4 II Score: 18/3

Morkel continues. And OUT! Morkel gets the prized wicket of Rohit Sharma! He has caught Mumbai skipper off his bowling! Sharma came forward and checked his short at the last moment. A soft dismissal in the end. Rohit scored 2 (5b). In walks Ambati Rayudu. More trouble for the Mumbai team. A bad start for them after their captain won the toss and elected to bat first. Just two runs in the over and the big wicket of Rohit.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 3 II Score: 16/2

Mohit Sharma continues. Rohit is on strike. And he guides the first delivery to third man for a single. The second is pitched on good length and Karthik gets hit on the pads. A loud appeal for lbw. This looks close but umpire thinks otherwise. The height may have been the issue here. MI batsmen are facing difficulty in picking Mohit. And just as I type this, Karthik plays the final delivery through covers for a boundary. This must make him feel a lot better and at home. Five runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 2 II Score: 11/2

Albie Morkel will share the new ball with Mohit. Facing him is Aditya Tare. And OUT! Morkel has cleaned up Aditya Tare as the stump is uprooted. He was looking to flick this but missed it completely. What a start for CSK! Tare walks back for a duck. In walks MI skipper Rohit Sharma. MI rocked early. Just three runs from the over.
================================================================================

Mumbai Indians Over: 1 II Score: 8/1

Now to the business folks. Mohit Sharma has the new ball. On strike is Dwayne Smith. First up from Smith is a flick to leg but Jadeja quickly fields it to eliminate any opportunity of a quick single. And here comes the first boundary of the Mumbai innings as Smith cracks the third delivery from Sharma through point. OUT! And Sharma has got the big wicket of Dwayne Smith! A brilliant comeback from the young pacer as an inswining delivery traps Smith in front of the wickets. Umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger. Smith scored 4 (4b, 4X1). In walks Dinesh Karthik. And an edge off the final delivery runs down to the third man boundary for second four. Eight runs from the over.
================================================================================

Right! Here we go for one last time as the two umpires walk to the middle amid a guard of honour formed by kids followed by fireworks. And amidst a loud cheer from the capacity Kolkata crowd, Chennai captain MS Dhoni walks to the middle followed by his soldiers in yellow. And here we have the Mumbai openers -- Dwayne Smith and Aditya Tare -- sprinting towards the pitch. ================================================================================

TOSS: Mumbai Indians have won the toss and will bat first.
