Corey Anderson's brilliant 44-ball 95 not out against Rajasthan Royals, not only had the Mumbai Indians fans cheering, but the captain of the New Zealand team, Brendon McCullum too was thrilled, especially with the ODI World Cup nine months away.

CSK coach Stephen Fleming dwelt on the excitement that McCullum displayed after the knock, but Anderson himself is hoping that the former doesn't do well in tonight's clash!
"He's had a good tournament and is a dangerous player. If we can nullify him and minimise his damage on the game, then it's going to be a massive part of the puzzle we have to crack tomorrow," said the 23-year-old.
Brilliant Bhajji at the nets
The Mumbai Indians undertook brief fielding drills before hitting the nets at the Brabourne Stadium yesterday evening. But, one man was sought out by fielding coach Jonty Rhodes for an extended catching session even while others were getting ready to bat and bowl.
Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who has struck excellent form of late, undertook some aerial catching practice. Are we preparing to witness a stunner this evening?
