After Smith's dismissal Sachin Tendulkar and Dinesh Karthik attemped to consolidate. Mumbai's fifty came up in the seventh over and from then on Sachin and Karthik let loose. (BCCI image)
Just as Sachin and Karthik were looking to up the ante, Mumbai were struck a double blow. After hitting Karan Sharma for a four and a six in the 12th over, Sachin retired hurt on 38 with a hand injury. (BCCI image)
