Absence of Sachin Tendulkar
In the absence of Sachin Tendulkar, the onus of delivering big runs for Mumbai was on Sanath Jayasuriya. And he set about dismantling the bowling with trademark brutality, but his knock was cut short by a superb piece of fielding by Zaheer Khan.
After 16.5 overs
After 16.5 overs, Mumbai were at 125 for 4 meandering towards a below-par score. Shaun Pollock then blitzed a 12-ball 28 to take them to a competitive 165.
Mark Boucher and Jacques Kallis
With three overs remaining, Bangalore needed 30 and it was anybody’s game. Ashish Nehra though conceded 19 runs in the next over to Mark Boucher and Jacques Kallis and Mumbai slid to defeat in their first game.
