A good wicket for the Mork and Mindians, as Matty Hayden swats Jayasuriya to Zaheer Khan who takes a good low catch. Hayden 44(35b, 6x4 1xDLFMx).
At what point can we proclaim a Twenty20 game a GOTLD? As I speak CSK need 75 to win from 42 balls at a RRR of 10.7.
This is my last post of the evening, maybe I'll see this game out and maybe even see some of Warnie's Rajasthanis. Or maybe not. Adieu for nieu.
Toilet break time for Not-so-IPL viewers the world over, CSK 70 for 3 needing another 97 to win. No DLF Maxima yet for Matty Hayden, he's 30*(26). Can he beat his T20 PB of 81, also scored against Mumbai last year?
Oh there's some chap called MS Dhoni 0*(0) at the other end.
Already this game is three hours old. Gimme baseball any day!
Simon Doull an Official IPL Commentator. What Is The World Coming To?
Tendulkar's career best T20 score of 69 is yet to be conquered as he completes a neat 59*(49) despite not achieving a single DLF Maximum.
The big question now... will the Change of Innings be longer than the Ten Over Toilet Break?
It's no longer a six. It's a DLF Maximum. And we had to wait until the eighteenth over of the Mumbai innings for the first DLF Maximum of the 2009 Not-so-IPL, tonked by Abishek Nayar off Andrew Flintoff.
Not content with that, Nayar clubbed another two DLF Maximums (or is that DLF Maxima?) off Flintoff later that over.
And if that's not enough, Mark Bloody Nicholas was the commentator.
Less than 24 hours ago, Jean-Paul Duminy made a tidy 3(8) in South Africa's 47-run loss to Australia at The Wanderers. Today it's an even tidier 9(7) for Mumbai before swatting a short ball back to Chennai's Manjpreet Singh Gony in the Indian domestic game at Newlands.
Ten overs down in this funereally slow game of Indian domestic cricket being played in Cape Town. The Cleveland Mumbai Indians are 64 for 1 against the Chennai Sub Super Kings. And now we have the 7.5 minute toilet break... the Modi Mafia call it a "tactical time out", but it's really just an excuse to squeeze an extra five minutes of ads into each innings. Here in Australia it means more prattle from Huddo and Campbo on One Digital (part of the soon-to-go-bankrupt Channel Ten empire).
