IPL 2013 Finals: Mumbai Indians Batting Says Battle Is Won

202 runs by Mumbai Indians when invited by Rajasthan Royals in the Finals of IPL 2013 being played at Delhi's Feroze Shah Kotla Ground. It is a fantastic performance by all seven players who got a chance to bat. On this batting friendly wicket though Rajasthan Toyals have fair chances of performing well and winning the finals but chances are bleak to break this jinx of 10.10 runs per over.

Sachin Tendulkar was first to go at 15 made off 13 balls with 3 fours. He was bowled by Shane Watson on he third ball of fifth over. Dwayne Smith made 44 off 39 balls with 5 fours and 1 six. He was next to go on the fourth ball of 12th over bowled by Tambe. Score was not in a very good condition when Rayudu departed in 14th over on 29 with MI score on 109 for 3.

But then it was bombardment from captain Rohit Sharma (14 balls 33 runs, 3 fours and 2 sixes), Keiron Pollard 10 balls 15 runs, 1 four and 1 six, Glenn Maxwell 14 balls, 37 runs, 4 fours and 2 sixes.  Karthik made excellent 15 runs on 5 balls with 2 sixes and Harbhajan was handy with a six in 2 balls he got to play.

  1. No matter what people say about IPL and match fixing, I love this form of cricket and am looking forward to the next season but will surely miss Rahul Dravid and Master blaster SachinTendulkar.
