Yes they did and they did screw it up again.  If MI cannot restrict here they are well and truly out of it. 

Then KIC can still sit and give us the combinations on how MI can make it to the semifinals.

And GK perhaps can start a petition on having SRT removed from captaincy and can hand deliver it to the Ambani's.  I still remember the enthusiasm with which he took the lead on the 20-20 WC inclusion of SRT.

But in all seriouness the Malinga factor will afterall might see them through and put them back in the race.

AK goes with a rookie for the last over who also is the most expensive ? :icon_scratch:
little too much for RC but when team needs to bat only one way you never know!

Actually the rookie did not do all that bad 13-14 runs is not all that bad bowling a 20th when you see that MI only lost 2 wickets overall.

But when I look at the MI bowling line up I expect BRC to get these runs.  I know spin does play a role here but comeon you should be able to get these runs against a side that is missing ZK.

BRC get a bonus.  They get 9 off Malinga's first over which is pretty good.

UUU or U3 goes.

This guy is overrated.

They should strip his contract and ask for a refund.

All these guys are just hype but no substance.

Come good in a game out of 6 or 7 and then just hang on for the rest.

A tame dismissal.

even without ZK they are one of the best bowling line up in this tournament and it will be difficult to chase on this pitch. as I am saying this BRC loses the third one ...and semifinal chances going up in smoke

Needless run-out of RD.

That was always tight and they paid the price.

Great throw as well.

BRC staring down the barrel here.

Coming back to the game RD's runout was the key.

BRC would have had a chance with RD in and playing around him.

RD and Boucher would have been formidable in the chase.

another pathetic show by BRC this time mainly from bowlers in the last 5-6 overs when they conceded more than 50 runs. Batting was always their weakness and this time no better. So safely another team out of contention for a semi final birth.

I thought SRT captained much better in this match. Holding back Malinga and allowing spinners to operate in the PP overs was good and unfortunately people like Kohli/RU did not adjust their batting accordingly. Both these players continue to flop and BRC can as well allow others to play such as Gautam Dhiman, B.Akhil etc

Rahane and Duminy renew Mumbai's hopes

Rahane and Duminy renew Mumbai's hopes
10 May 2009, 3:15 pm



Mumbai Indians 157 for 2 (Rahane 60*, Duminy 59*) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore 141 for 7 (Boucher 48*, Harbhajan 2-15) by 16 runs Scorecard and ball-by-ball details How they were out



JP Duminy and Ajinkya Rahane added 104 for the third wicket to help Mumbai Indians set Royal Challengers Bangalore a challenging target of 158

Associated Press

Pushed into the corner after three successive defeats, Mumbai Indians turned in a fine all-round performance at St George's Park, converting a middling target of 158 into a match-winning one. Sachin Tendulkar failed with the bat, falling for a third-ball duck, but he didn't falter with his captaincy moves. Starting with the promotion of Ajinkya Rahane, who scored an unbeaten 59, it was the bowling changes which proved crucial in the end as they resulted in the fall of four wickets. The wheels came off Bangalore and the game was over when they needed an improbable 40 off the last two overs.

Mumbai had earned their revenge after being vanquished by Bangalore exactly a week ago at the Wanderers. Their defeat to Delhi Daredevils was just as demoralising when their batting imploded. Today, they reworked their batting order, turned in a much more commanding performance and lost just two wickets. A stand of 104 between Rahane and JP Duminy gave their comeback campaign a surge and the momentum rubbed off on the bowlers who all chipped in with equal measure to effect timely breakthroughs and in turn strangle the runs.  

Bangalore had the momentum briefly early in the chase when Kallis whipped a couple of stylish boundaries through the on side. The introduction of Dwayne Bravo sent him back as he upper cut a short delivery straight to third man. Robin Uthappa's inconsistency showed up again as he slapped Kulkarni straight to short midwicket before Virat Kohli perished in the same manner. Kohli looked to get on top of the seamers but when Tendulkar brought on Chetanya Nanda, it immediately brought about a wicket.  

The run-out of Rahul Dravid, done in by a flat throw from Malinga in the deep, sunk Bangalore and at the end of 10 overs, they were desperately in need of a recovery at 58 for 4. Ross Taylor heaved Nanda over deep square-leg to bring about the first six of the innings but the relief was only temporary as Malinga returned for a new spell and sent Taylor back with a lightning quick yorker. Malinga had set it up earlier in the over with similar deliveries and one could sense a wicket was around the corner.

Boucher at the other end tried to glue the chase together but the support wasn't forthcoming. Harbhajan returned for a new spell and sent back the dangerous Roelof van der Merwe thanks to a brilliant leg-side stumping by Yogesh Takawale. At the start of the 14th over, Bangalore ran out of specialist batsmen and by the end, needed 66 off the last six overs. Mumbai on the other hand managed 65 off their last six and that proved the difference.



Prime Numbers

4

The number of times JP Duminy has scored 50 or above - the highest in this tournament

3

The position that Anil Kumble occupies in terms of economy rate for bowlers with 10 or more wickets

1

The number of batsmen in the Royal Challengers Bangalore team who have 200 or more runs. Jacques Kallis is the only one

4

The number of matches won by Mumbai Indians batting first. In fact, all their victories have come batting first

39

Mark Boucher's average in the tournament, the highest among the Bangalore batsmen



Bringing back Sanath Jayasuriya gave the innings a much-needed push after Tendulkar's early fall. He ensured Mumbai held the edge in the first Powerplay with 46 on the board with a wicket down, a contrast to the way they started against Delhi where they struggled to find the ropes.

He fell soon after van der Merwe came into the attack but the spinners couldn't contain Rahane, who made the most of his promotion. He began by slogging Kumble over the on side, including a huge six over wide long-on on his knee.

His intention was to get positive against the spinners and he demonstrated that by regularly chipping down the track to smother the spin and loft inside out. Not all aerial shots found the boundary but it didn't matter as he and his partner Duminy kept rotating the strike.

Duminy broke the boundary drought - which lasted more than three overs - with a massive six, off a front foot pull, off the debutant Abhmanyu Mithun. That shot signaled his arrival after a quiet start as he lofted van der Merwe over his head and swung Vinay Kumar over backward square-leg for another half a dozen.

Between overs 11 and 14, Mumbai scored 25 runs. In the next three they managed 33, indicative of their revival. Rahane reached his fifty with a deft dab to third man and Duminy raced towards his as he went into fifth gear with some scorching drives through the off side. Mumbai went into the break with much cheer, and their bowlers stepped up to fashion  a much-needed win to move up by one place in the points table. It will take a while to get up higher but at least they crossed the first hurdle.

Early collapse cost us - Kumble

Early collapse cost us - Kumble
10 May 2009, 4:10 pm



Anil Kumble, the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain, has blamed the loss of early wickets as the reason for his team's 16-run defeat to Mumbai Indians in Port Elizabeth. Bangalore were in trouble at 58 for 4 chasing 158 and the loss of wickets increased the pressure and the asking rate.

Kumble said Rahul Dravid's run-out  for 10 was the turning point in the chase. Dravid turned around for a second run but he failed to make his ground before Lasith Malinga's throw from long-off reached the bowler.

"We lost too many wickets at the start [of the run chase] and probably that was the main reason [for the loss]. That's what we need to look at seriously," Kumble said. "I think Rahul's run-out was crucial. If he was there till the end it was still a good wicket to bat and we could have chased it down."

Kumble felt the loss of wickets only piled the pressure on Boucher who made an unbeaten 48 off 33 balls.

"Boucher is someone who played till the end to try and finish the game for us, but unfortunately it was too many runs at the end for him," Kumble said.

The winning captain Sachin Tendulkar praised the contributions of JP Duminy and Ajinkya Rahane, who scored half-centuries and lifted Mumbai to a match-winning total. Mumbai were desperate for a win after three successive defeats and the victory helped them move to No. 6, just ahead of Bangalore.

"We needed this victory and all thanks to JP and Ajinkya," Tendulkar said. "I thought they really batted well till the end. Sanath [Jayasuriya] too did a good job. Our bowlers also bowled well. It was a good all-round performance by the team. It was an all-round performance, batting, bowling and fielding everything was good."

Yes they did and they did screw it up again. 

Huh?? SRT was out but Jaya gave us the momentum upfront.

I thought we should have batted much better. You cant end up on 150 odd with only 2 wickets down - especially now that the general range of scores seem to have gone up (esp when the better teams are playing).

Thankfully it was against BRC which is also a very inconsistent batting line up.

We may be able to pull a win off with such scores even against RR ...but definitely not against the likes of CSK, DD or KXIP.

Duminy can only do so much ...ideally we need someone (ideally a couple of guys) like a Tirumalasetty Suman in our ranks, who can get the momentum going mid-innings (even 20s will do) and allow Duminy or SRT (whoever is out there) to build. Maybe look at getting someone like a Nayar up the order if Jaya goes early. Rahane can come in if SRT goes early.

I would play that depending on who gets out first. If Jaya goes, Bravo or Nayar to come in. If SRT goes, Rahane coming in is fine. I would keep Duminy at 4 - that guy can bat under severe pressure ...so, want him around if there is a collapse.

Hah ..that is unlikely to happen too often ...it is rare that the MI line up has gone thru and entire innings without struggling.

Has Bravo ever opened? He is the only real power hitter in our squad lower down (Nayar has blown hot and cold). I would hate to lose him upfront to a very good new ball spell.

C'mon in T20 is there anything such as an opener? HS could do it. The point is that with SJ not firing you need someone to maximize the 6 over PP.

It is not as if SJ has not fired ever ...he gave us the momentum in the last match as well before he got out.

I want someone down the order who can consistently give us the big overs ...Bravo is that man for me.

I dont mind promoting Bhajji to No 3 if an early wicket falls to maximise the PPs if required.

Great call - worked like a dream yesterday.

I am still not convinced I like the idea of pairing Jayasuriya and Bravo in this format. Leaves us with too many accumulators down the order and only Nayar as a power hitter, who is not exactly proven so far.
