Mumbai indians go through

2013-05-25 00:00

KOLKATA — Dwayne Smith scored 62 to help the Mumbai Indians to a four-wicket victory, with one ball to spare, over the Rajasthan Royals in the second qualifier of the Pepsi Indian Premier League (IPL) at Eden Gardens in Kolkata yesterday. Rain had delayed the game by an hour.

The Royals chose to bat first and posted 165 for six in their 20 overs. The Mumbai Indians reached 169 for six after Harbhajan Singh (six not out) hit Shane Watson (1-34) for four.

Smith hit six boundaries and two maximums in a 44-ball knock. He shared in two half-century stands with Aditya Tare (35) and Dinesh Karthik (22).

Mumbai will now face the Chennai Super Kings in Kolkata on May 26, to see who will be crowned the 2013 IPL champions.
