Mumbai look to repeat mauling
1 May 2009, 7:58 am



Match facts

May 1, 2009

Start time 12.30pm (10.30GMT, 16.00 IST)



Lasith Malinga has been the stand-out player for Mumbai Indians, with a bowling average (5.18) which is less than the economy rates of most bowlers

Big Picture

Revolutionary captaincy theories, and the more basic disciplines of batting and bowling have all misfired to leave Kolkata Knight Riders at the bottom of the table. Throw in the fact that in-form opener Chris Gayle has just one more game left before heading to England, and the rumours of an unhappy dressing room, things seem bleaker still for Kolkata. And they are up against the Mumbai Indians, a team which thrashed them earlier in the week in Port Elizabeth.

Mumbai will be looking for a repeat of that Monday mauling, and getting back to winning ways after their slip-up against Kings XI Punjab. Kolkata's captain Brendon McCullum has said that their main troubles have been at the start of the innings with both bat and ball, and worryingly for them those are among Mumbai's strongest points - openers Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya, and new-ball bowlers Lasith Malinga and Zaheer Khan. In short, a win on Friday for Kolkata will be the most surprising result of the tournament so far.

Form guide

Mumbai Malinga has been the stand-out player for them, with a bowling average (5.18) which is less than the economy rates of most bowlers. Add to that the fact that he gives away only 3.97 runs an over, and Kolkata have a fearsome opponent to deal with.

Kolkata Ishant Sharma has been pretty handy with the ball, and Gayle has been at his carefree best, but the trouble for Kolkata has been McCullum, who has yet to recapture the form that helped New Zealand ease to two Twenty20 victories over India earlier in the year.

Team news

Mumbai could go in with an unchanged line-up. The one change they may contemplate is getting in Ajinkya Rahane, who was prolific in the domestic season, in place of Shikhar Dhawan, who hasn't been putting in the solid performances of last year.

Mumbai 1 Sachin Tendulkar (capt), 2 Sanath Jayasuriya, 3 Shikhar Dhawan/Ajinkya Rahane, 4 JP Duminy, 5 Dwayne Bravo, 6 Abhishek Nayar, 7 Saurabh Tiwary, 8 Harbhajan Singh, 9 Pinal Shah (wk), 10 Zaheer Khan, 11 Laith Malinga

Ajit Agarkar had another poor outing against Bangalore which means his place could come under scrutiny. They have the expensively acquired Mashrafe Mortaza in the side, but Charl Langeveldt, with his mastery of death bowling, could win a place ahead of him.  Morne van Wyk's unbeaten 43 should help him get another game at least, which means Brad Hodge could be on the sidelines.

Kolkata 1 Brendon McCullum (capt), 2 Chris Gayle, 3 Sourav Ganguly, 4 Morne van Wyk (wk), 5 Yashpal Singh, 6 Wriddhiman Saha, 7 Laxmi Shukla, 8 Ashok Dinda, 9 Charl Langeveldt, 10 Murali Katik 11 Ishant Sharma

Head-to-head record

Last season Mumbai won by seven wickets in Kolkata, and by eight at home.

It is again not the big stars that got a team out of the woods.  Duminy that man again the best batsman on display in the Mumbai lineup did the best a player could do holding this innings together and finish an innings.  Also he has some great style and elegance to him.

I seriously think it is time to evalute Jayasuriya for the MI'ans.  I am watching him.  He appears a pale shadow of his former self.  Sure he can come up with a  cameo here or there but I do think for the consistency Mumbai should tap into someone like a Rahane who is pretty good that needs some backing.

As is proven last year by RR it is not always the stars of the yesteryear that will be needed to win but a team of performers with consistency that play together.

Enough hinding from BM. I was expecting him after 2 down. Anyway he better come after three down to lead else no point in developing leadership qualities.

On a separate note. I also think teams who put more confidence in local (read Indian) players will succeed in long term.  Lot of reasons behind it, the bigggest being availibility throughout season and players getting confident of their spots.
PP has been a failed element of this theory though  :-[

SRT needs to be careful here.  He cannot hold Malinga for too long.  Each day is new and as good as a IPL Malinga had every player will have their offday.  Fidel Edwards yesterday and Vettori the other day are examples of that.  Also you do not want a partnership to develop in the name of upping the run-rate.  In these small grounds a set bastman can score runs at a decent pace.  So it is better SRT brings Malinga on soon.

If i were SRT, would give Mallinga remaining 3 overs after this. That would give MI a wicket or two atleast with minimal SR also get KKR completly out of game(with SG and Gayle gone).

Would SRK be watching this match in his bathroom or would he be bold enough to watch it with friends and family ?. I wish JB writes articles on his ground work for team after every KKR match.

Even in the sacrcasm there is always some truth.  As much as it is easy to blame Buchanan for this it is very clear the players mainly McCullum, Ganguly and Gayle let the team down big time by not justifying the price tag.  Their performances left a lot to be desired and I am sure being the pros they are will realise it more than others.

I honestly don't understand what these people have done so far from visible matches? The basics of every team game is to have a confident TEAM who enjoys the team's success.
If the Coach+support staff can't get a team, at least get some cricket in team ?
So far seems they have miserably  failed on all accounts.

Duminy carries Mumbai to fighting total
1 May 2009, 12:41 pm



20 overs Mumbai Indians 148 for 6 (Duminy 52*) v Kolkata Knight Riders

Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details

How they were out



A late assault from JP Duminy lifted Mumbai

AFP

Kolkata Knight Riders put in a much-improved performance with the ball to prevent a repeat of the pasting they received when the teams met earlier this week. Only eight boundaries and six sixes were hit in the innings, which meant Kolkata raised hopes of the biggest upset win of the season. But Mumbai Indians went into the break with some momentum, thanks to a late assault by JP Duminy that took them to a fighting total.

Kolkata made proactive and frequent bowling changes, and didn't let the batsmen settle to any kind of rhythm. After the first 12 overs of the innings, five of seven bowlers used by Kolkata had gone for less than six an over, and four of them had taken a wicket each. Mumbai made their share of changes in their batting, sending hitters Harbhajan Singh and Abhishek Nayar at No's 3 and 4. None of the moves worked, and Mumbai had paid the price of aiming too high against a team they mauled last Monday.

Mumbai have been overly reliant on their senior citizens, Sachin Tendulkar and Jayasuriya, as highlighted by stutters following their exits in previous games. Aart from Duminy the others didn't do much to address that concern. Subtracting Duminy's innings, Tendulkar hit three of the seven boundaries and all the sixes. From the moment Mumbai lost Jayasuriya to an edge outside off stump, it was all Kolkata until Duminy struck late.

Laxmi Shukla came on first-change and bowled two overs for nine runs, Murali Kartik bowled inside the Powerplay and got Harbhajan in his first over, and Chris Gayle bowled his first two overs for five runs. But the biggest blow came in Ajit Agarkar's first over, which actually started horribly. The first ball Tendulkar faced from him, he stepped out and hit over wide long-off, the next one crashed through extra cover, but then a full toss went straight to extra cover. When Brad Hodge bowled Nayar in the 12th over, Mumbai were struggling at 71 for 4.

It was extremely difficult for them to get a move on in the middle overs, as Duminy and Graham Napier faced 27 deliveries between them without a boundary. Napier, who was dropped by Brendon McCullum off Gayle, finally broke the shackles, but was picked out the same fielder attempting to put away a quicker ball.

Kolkata had done everything right until then, but they still had Duminy to take care of. When Shukla came on to bowl the 18th over, Duminy was 22 off 26 and Mumbai had reached only 106. He pulled Shukla for two sixes in the 18th over and suddenly all the good work from the first 17 overs seemed going down the drain for Kolkata. Ishant Sharma bowled a superb 19th over, giving just nine runs and taking a wicket, but Duminy still stood between Kolkata and an easy target.

Two more sixes followed in the last over, both down the ground, off length deliveries from Dinda. The latter came off the last ball, which meant he had scored 30 off the last balls he faced.

So much for opening the batting!!!

it would be good if KKR wins. MI are DD's main competition along with the Madrasis. So KKR beating them is a good thing.

Just pointing to the 'X' type Gangulians like Blwe, cricinfo, Libran/Ravi etc that sending a slow and retired SG to open is not always a good idea.

And itni subah to hum bhi Jack Daniel nahin peete :)

I think it was worth a try at least. Nothing else seem to be working for them.
Would also prefer to repeat this for another match, BM anyways has been seem struggling to make runs. He has played 5 so far.
