Champions T20 League 2010, Lions SA vs Mumbai Indians. Day.1. Match.1.


Lions SA 186 for 5 beat Mumbai Indians 177/6 by nine runs. Lions played as a team, and it was evident they have been playing together for long. No major star material other than McKenzie, who made a brilliant 56 of 43, well supported by, Vandiar 71 of 75.
Lesser said about Mumbai Indians game plan the better. Sachin batted like a champion for 69 of 62, but skippered the team like a novice. Using McLaren for just one over, trying eight bowlers with out a plan, using Satish a part time bowler and Zaheer who has not bowled for long , at crucial times, a pathetic batting order, and a shoddy fielding display , let MI down. Anyway, it is early days, wish them luck.
