Nokia Champions League T20 - Group A

Chennai Super Kings v Cape Cobras

Chennai Super Kings won by 4 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

Albie Morkel will bowl the first over, Richard Levi will face

8.05 Right I have finished the match report for that tie, have had a quick cup, a brief 10-minute break, and we are ready to go with the next one. James says, "Let's hope this game is as good as the last one! Will support the Cobras, because they're not an IPL team. Feels a bit like supporting the underdog in the FA against a premier league team." James, I don't quite agree with "good". Close yes, but this pitch doesn't make for either good bowling or good batting. However, can't argue against a tie on 139. Sreedhar is not in the modd for elbowroom today. He says, "I will never understand the presense of WP Saha in CSK team, well for that i never understood his presence in Indian cricket."

The Cobras have started this tournament well, Chennai not so. They can ill-afford another slip-up; they're part of a tough group.

Toss: The Cobras have won the toss and decided to bat. They are fielding an unchanged line-up. MS Dhoni reckons the dew might help Chennai. The hosts are also unchanged.

7.40pm: There's a 10-minute delay for the start of this game due to the Super Over in the previous game. So it'll start at 8.10pm.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the game between Chennai Super Kings and Cape Cobras in Chennai. It's been a rocking tournament so far, plenty of close games including the one that just ended. It went down to the Super Over and Moises Henriques inflicted another agonising defeat on Trinidad and Tobago, who've now lost two games by a whisker.

0.5

Morkel to Levi, FOUR, improvisation... Levi plants his front foot right across the stumps, then flicks late to beat short fine leg. All CSK fielders were excited because he could very easily have got out lbw to this

HH Gibbs    1* (3b)     

Ashwin takes the new ball

1.1

Ashwin to Levi, OUT, and he strikes first ball. That's plumb. This is an offbreak that dips and skids off the surface, pitches on a length just outside off, and turns in towards middle. Levi is caught on the back foot, and hit smack in front. What's more he played across the line, trying to work it to square leg

RE Levi lbw b Ashwin 6 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Dhoni to stand up to the stumps now

2.1

Morkel to Gibbs, 2 wides, and Dhoni might feel like asking Albie which side he is on... this is a full wide delivery down the leg side just after having brought him up to the stumps

Dhoni goes back

2.1

Morkel to Vilas, FOUR, leg-stump half-volley, and clipped away for an easy four. Gift certificate encashed

2.2

Morkel to Vilas, 1 run, short of a length, more towards off than leg, they tip and run, this has hardly gone off the square on the leg side. Vilas' bat is between the throw and the stumps, which means he is also in comofrtably

Dhoni back up to the stumps for Gibbs

2.3

Morkel to Gibbs, no run, slower one but full and wide, Gibbs plays early and lobs it into the off side. It falls short of the cover ring

2.4

Morkel to Gibbs, 2 runs, another slower one, Gibbs is early again but manages to heave it past midwicket for two

2.5

Morkel to Gibbs, FOUR, one slower ball too any, this time Gibbs is waiting. "Come, come"... and lofts it over mid-on. Just a chip. No attempt it to muscle it

Morkel to Gibbs, 1 run, slower offcutter again, this time turning in towards off stump, Gibbs tips and runs to cover

End of over 3 (14 runs) Cape Cobras 27/1 (RR: 9.00)

DJ Vilas    6* (3b 1x4)      R Ashwin    1-0-6-1

HH Gibbs    18* (13b 3x4)      JA Morkel    2-0-21-0

Garreth: "Vintage Gibbs. Love watching him bat. What an enigma". Here's Bollinger

4.1

Bollinger to Vilas, no run, left alone outside off, that's interesting

4.2

Bollinger to Vilas, 1 run, length ball, fourth-stump line, gets a single off the inside edge

There is visible dew on the outfield, that should neuter some of the slowness and lowness

4.3

Bollinger to Gibbs, OUT, Gibbs is gone. Misreads the length, goes to pull a ball not that short, one comes off the bat even as he tries the shot, and ends up lobbing it towards mid-on. Hussey completes the simple catch

HH Gibbs c Hussey b Bollinger 18 (17m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

"This part of the jinx is brought to you by Mr.Garreth." Pras G rubs it in. In comes Owais Shah, and surprise surprise, they didn't cross with the skier in the air. Unusual for non-Indian sides

4.4

Bollinger to Shah, no run, length ball outside off Shah shuffles across to defend

4.5

Bollinger to Shah, FOUR, missile-cut... this is short and wide, Shah shuffles across to get close to the line and just lets it rip between point and cover-point

Bollinger goes round the stumps

4.6

Bollinger to Shah, 1 run, short of a length, steers it to third man

"Incidentally Cobras captain is a man who failed to find a regular place in the CSK line up during the IPL..He will have a revenge or two in his mind..!!" George is talking of Justin Kemp here

End of over 5 (6 runs) Cape Cobras 40/2 (RR: 8.00)
OA Shah    5* (3b 1x4)      DE Bollinger    1-0-6-1
DJ Vilas    8* (9b 1x4)      R Ashwin    2-0-13-1

Dwayne Bravo to bowl now

5.1

Bravo to Shah, no run, starts off with a slower ball, short of a length, just outside off, defended to off

"Shah is terrible and should score no runs. I said NO runs! :P" Garreth has learned his lesson

5.2

Bravo to Shah, 1 run, slow again, worked around the corner for a single

5.3

Bravo to Vilas, 1 leg bye, slow again, beats his bat with the offcut, concedes the leg-bye, though

5.4

Bravo to Shah, no run, Shah makes room, Bravo stays straight, Shah defends it back to him

5.5

Bravo to Shah, FOUR, the wrists of Shah. This is the fifth slower ball of the over. Shah is waiting for it, and then flicks it from outside off, past short fine leg. What a whiplash in order to find that gap

5.6

Bravo to Shah, 2 runs, all six slow balls then, Shah drives it long-on where Vijay misfields to allow them to come back for a second

End of over 6 (8 runs) Cape Cobras 48/2 (RR: 8.00)
OA Shah    12* (8b 2x4)      DJ Bravo    1-0-7-0
DJ Vilas    8* (10b 1x4)      DE Bollinger    1-0-6-1

6.2

Jakati to Shah, no run, tossed up, around off, pushed back to the bowler

6.3

Jakati to Shah, 1 run, what a whir of wrists again, from well outside off, flicked away to deep midwicket for one

6.4

Jakati to Vilas, 1 leg bye, moves too far across to try and weep this full delivery, hit on the pads in front, pitched off, hit in front of appeal, and hence the big lbw appeal The umpire says not out. The Hawkeye projection seems completely off to me. It says missing leg by a long way

6.5

Jakati to Shah, 1 run, pushed with an open face, gets a single

6.6

Jakati to Vilas, 1 wide, fired down the leg side this time

6.6

Raina to bowl his offbreaks now

7.1

Raina to Shah, 1 run, shuffles across, then sees the ball turn sharply, has to hurry up with his flick off the exposed leg stump

7.2

Raina to Vilas, SIX, Thump. Whack. Monster. Length ball on the pads, he doesn't even get close to the pitch of the ball, which allows him the elevation, and up she goes over square leg

7.3

Raina to Vilas, 1 run, punched away to sweeper-cover

The pitch does seem to have quickened up

7.4

Raina to Shah, 1 run, straight delivery, around off, worked away to deep square. Bollinger misfields, but they don't take the second

7.5

Raina to Vilas, 1 run, the drifter outside off, cut away for a single

7.6

Raina to Shah, 1 run, short, quick, wide, steered fine, but Morkel makes a full-length dive at short third man to save three runs

End of over 8 (11 runs) Cape Cobras 64/2 (RR: 8.00)
OA Shah    17* (14b 2x4)      SK Raina    1-0-11-0
DJ Vilas    17* (16b 1x4 1x6)      SB Jakati    1-0-4-0

"Shah and Vilas could be Saurashtra Sonnets! He's Vi-aaa-ss of course" Andy Clarke, the former chief minister of Maharashtra was named Vilas Rao Deshmukh too. He is now Mumbai Cricket Association president

8.1

Bravo to Shah, 1 run, short of a length, around off, placed wide of point for one

8.2

Bravo to Vilas, no run, short, regulation pace finally, pulled away, midwicket makes a diving save

Bravo wearing what looks like a T&T wrist band on one wrist, and the yellow CSK one on the other

8.3

Bravo to Vilas, 1 run, length ball outside off, dabbed away for a single to third man

8.4

Bravo to Shah, no run, Shah makes room, Bravo follows him with a full ball on the pads, hit back to Bravo

8.5

Bravo to Shah, 1 run, length ball outside off, Badri fields at point but can't hit the stumps at non-striker's end direct

8.6

Bravo to Vilas, OUT, Bravo strikes. That slower ball retains some surprise even after blatant overuse. Vilas makes room and is perhaps playing for the offcutter, but this one goes straight and hits the off stump. Bravo is kicked

DJ Vilas b Bravo 18 (33m 19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 94.73

End of over 9 (3 runs) Cape Cobras 67/3 (RR: 7.44)

9.4

Ashwin to Shah, no run, flighted outside off, turns in, gets the inside edge back to the bowler

9.5

Ashwin to Shah, 1 run, well bowled, but how well has Shah recovered? He sees Shah charge down, fires in a carrom ball down the leg side, a desperate Shah flings his bat at it to get some sort of contact to avoid a stumping. He manages a leading edge that lobs midwicket

9.6

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, full on off, driven to long-off

End of over 10 (6 runs) Cape Cobras 73/3 (RR: 7.30)

OA Shah    21* (20b 2x4)      DJ Bravo    2-0-10-1

Bollinger comes back. "The concept of Super Over doesnt really strike fair to me. It ultimately becomes an 1 over contest. Instead, they shud allow the teams to carry on batting from where they had left, for 1 more over. In case of both teams getting allout, it shud be declared a tie." Kalai might have a point here

10.1

Bollinger to Duminy, FOUR, uses Bollinger's extra pace. Good soft hands too. This is short, just outside off, Duminy opens the face delightfully late. Third man has no chance

10.2

Bollinger to Duminy, 1 run, slower length ball, pushed wide of extra cover for one

Round the wicket to Shah

10.3

Bollinger to Shah, FOUR, educated edge here... Shah makes room here, Bollinger follows him to cramp him up. Shah still tries to force a cover-drive, gets an inside edge that beats the stumps, the keeper, and the fine leg

10.4

Bollinger to Shah, 1 run, slower one on off, drops it to point and takes the single

10.5

Bollinger to Duminy, 1 run, steered away to third man for another single

Round the wicket to Shah

10.6

Bollinger to Shah, no run, well bowled, this one seams away against the angle, beats Shah's drive

OA Shah    26* (23b 3x4)      DE Bollinger    2-0-17-1
JP Duminy    10* (6b 1x4)      R Ashwin    3-0-19-1

Jakati comes back

11.1

Jakati to Duminy, 1 run, fired into the pads, pushed to deep midwicket for one

"@Kalai : What difference does it make? You are still paying one additional over per team." Sundar, you have missed Kalai's point. Kalai is saying that the team that has lost fewer wickets in the main match be advantaged during the tiebreaker

11.2

Jakati to Shah, 1 run, fired into the pads for a single

11.3

Jakati to Duminy, 1 run, slower through the air, but into the pads again, worked away for a single

11.5

Jakati to Shah, SIX, more movement before the ball is delivered, but this time he does it down the track to loft him well over long-on. It goes into the sea of yellow in the stands

11.6

Jakati to Shah, no run, punched to extra cover, but gets no run

End of over 12 (9 runs) Cape Cobras 93/3 (RR: 7.75)

Raina comes back too

12.1

Raina to Duminy, 1 run, slow, into the pads, worked away for a single

12.2

Raina to Shah, 1 run, he is trying impossible shots here, makes room to try and late=cut a length ball from in front of off. Still manages a single to short third

12.3

Raina to Duminy, FOUR, lovely extra-cover drive, this is pitched up on off, and he has caressed it past extra cover. All along the ground

12.4

Raina to Duminy, 1 run, length ball on off, driven to long-off for one

12.5

Raina to Shah, 1 run, short of a length, punched down to long-on for one

OA Shah    35* (29b 3x4 1x6)      SB Jakati    2-0-13-0

What's with these one-over spells? Here's Bravo

13.1

Bravo to Shah, 1 run, slow, full, wide, driven square for a single

"12.6 is the first dot ball of Duminy." If true, a good spot, Hussain

13.2

Bravo to Duminy, 1 run, short of a length, pushed wide of the bowler for a single

13.3

Bravo to Shah, 1 run, Badri has saved three runs here. Shah makes room, then drives this slow ball square, Badri makes a diving save at point

13.4

Bravo to Duminy, no run, short of a length, regulation pace, Duminy misses, is hit on the pads

13.5

Bravo to Duminy, 1 wide, wide down the leg side, full and quick

"Is this match being played at the same pitch as T&T v NSW?, well it doesn't seem so." Jovial, the dew has made the wicket skiddy, and it is also becoming difficult to grip the ball

13.5

Bravo to Duminy, 1 wide, another wide down the leg side

13.5

Bravo to Duminy, 1 run, length ball on off, pushed to point for one

13.6

Bravo to Shah, 1 run, slower ball, would have been wide had Shah not tried to late-cut it. You could see why Shah wanted to late-cut it, though. The third man was up in the circle, but he just couldn't nail the gap between point and short third

End of over 14 (7 runs) Cape Cobras 108/3 (RR: 7.71)
OA Shah    38* (32b 3x4 1x6)      DJ Bravo    3-0-17-1
JP Duminy    20* (15b 2x4)      SK Raina    2-0-19-0

Ashwin to bowl now. They seem to have got a ball change. It will work for Chennai. We will keep an eye on ball changes during Chennai innings too. Shah has got his helmet off

14.1

Ashwin to Shah, 1 run, full on the pads, driven to long-on for one

14.2

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, short of a length, on off, pushed to extra cover for a single

14.3

Ashwin to Shah, 2 runs, makes room, slaps an off-stump delivery straight to extra cover where Vijay misfields to allow two extra runs

14.4

Ashwin to Shah, 1 wide, cat and mouse, if ever there was one. Shah shapes to move forward, Ashwin pauses during the delivery stride, Shahs stops moving too. It's almost as it somebody has hit the pause button. Ashwin blinks first by firing a wide down the leg side

14.4

Ashwin to Shah, 1 run, carrom ball on leg, the leading edge gets him a single

14.5

Ashwin to Duminy, no run, appeal for lbw but this is fired into the pads and is headed well down

14.6

Ashwin to Duminy, 1 run, pulled away for a single

End of over 15 (7 runs) Cape Cobras 115/3 (RR: 7.66)
JP Duminy    22* (18b 2x4)      R Ashwin    4-0-26-1
OA Shah    42* (35b 3x4 1x6)      DJ Bravo    3-0-17-1

"What's the need for super over at all in the group matches? One can understand its requirement in the knock out stage but for league stage there is absolutely no requirement." Santanu you speak perfect sense, but sensible people don't run the game. Jakati is back again. I think Cobras will target him

15.1

Jakati to Duminy, SIX, inside-out over long-off. A near parallel six. Makes room, is not close to the pitch of the ball, but lofts it over long-off well

15.2

Jakati to Duminy, 1 run, whipped away from middle and leg for a single

15.3

Jakati to Shah, 1 run, Shah makes room, gets what he wants, a long hop, but ends up pulling it straight to deep midwicket for one

15.4

Jakati to Duminy, no run, Dropped. Duminy comes down the track, turns the face early, the leading edge lobs back to Jakati, who can't catch it. Absolute sitter goes down. Comes too slowly to him

15.5

Jakati to Duminy, no run, drilled straight to midwicket, NO is the immediate call

15.6

Jakati to Duminy, 1 leg bye, big, huge, uninterrupted, long, blood-curdling shout fow lbw, but this is turning down the leg side. Dhoni puts Sanga in shade with that shout even as they take the leg-bye. Duminy collides with Jakati who is facing the umpire and comes in Duminy's way

End of over 16 (9 runs) Cape Cobras 124/3 (RR: 7.75)
JP Duminy    29* (23b 2x4 1x6)      SB Jakati    3-0-21-0
OA Shah    43* (36b 3x4 1x6)      R Ashwin    4-0-26-1

Shah's helmet comes back. Morkel comes back too

16.1

Morkel to Duminy, OUT, Jakati makes amends with a superb catch running back. Duminy looks to hit countryman for a six first ball, gets a massive leading edge that seems it will clear short fine leg. Jakati turns around, runs back, and catches it over his shoulder

JP Duminy c Jakati b Morkel 29 (31m 24b 2x4 1x6) SR: 120.83

16.2

Morkel to Shah, 2 runs, slower ball, Shah has placed this wide of deep square for a couple

16.3

Morkel to Shah, OUT, another slower ball, another wicket, is this the over that turns this game? He looks to flick this over midwicket, from well outside off, and although he connects well, there is no pace on the ball to allow him pace on the shot. Hits a dolly to midwicket

OA Shah c Hussey b Morkel 45 (55m 38b 3x4 1x6) SR: 118.42

Kemp to face his former team

16.4

Morkel to Kemp, no run, short of a length, on off, pushed back to Morkel

16.5

Morkel to Kemp, 1 run, short of a length again, into the pads, worked away for a single

Justin Ontong to face for the first time

16.6

Morkel to Ontong, 1 wide, shapes up for the scoop, Morkel goes wide outside off, and goes too far wide outside off

16.6

Morkel to Ontong, 1 run, slower length ball, pushed to point for one

End of over 17 (5 runs) Cape Cobras 129/5 (RR: 7.58)
JL Ontong    1* (1b)      JA Morkel    3-0-26-2
JM Kemp    1* (2b)      SB Jakati    3-0-21-0

Bollinger comes back

17.1

Bollinger to Ontong, 1 run, moves away from the stumps, then back towards them, and flicks a length ball for a single to fine leg

17.2

Bollinger to Kemp, 1 run, short of a length, pushed to point for a single, Kemp is a touch slow, Badri tries to run him out, but misses

17.3

Bollinger to Ontong, 1 run, Kemp might have saved his former team three runs here. This is drilled hard down the ground, and Kemp get out of the way in time. They get just the single

17.4

Bollinger to Kemp, 1 run, slower short ball, pulled away along the ground to square leg

17.5

Bollinger to Ontong, OUT, the bouncer does it, but the one at regulation pace. Ontong looks to pull, but this one keeps angling away and he has to try to pull it from well outside off. Gets a top edge that is safely pouched by Raina running towards the point region

JL Ontong c Raina b Bollinger 3 (9m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

17.6

Bollinger to Kemp, no run, full outside off, Kemp drives, gets an inside edge through to Dhoni who fumbles because it has bounced in front of him. A more agile batsman might have stolen a single here?

End of over 18 (4 runs) Cape Cobras 133/6 (RR: 7.38)
JM Kemp    3* (5b)      DE Bollinger    3-0-21-2
RJ Peterson    0* (0b)      JA Morkel    3-0-26-2

Dwayne Bravo to bowl now. Robbie P to face for the first time

18.1

Bravo to Peterson, 1 wide, wide down the leg side, this is at least the third such he has bowled to left-hand batsmen tonight

18.1

Bravo to Peterson, 1 run, this is the ultra slow-motion of a slow delivery. Robbie P could have read a newspaper and then played this. He does it circumspectly to point

18.2

Bravo to Kemp, 1 leg bye, the bouncer at regulation pace, Kemp is down the track, misses on the pull, takes a leg-bye

18.3

Bravo to Peterson, no run, full outside off, he has driven it straight to extra cover, and Hussey is attacking it to make sure Peterson remains on strike

18.4

Bravo to Peterson, FOUR, yorker outside off, Peterson plays it smartly, opening the face on it, squeezes it past point and square of the very fine third man

18.5

Bravo to Peterson, no run, Just short. Length ball, outside off, regulation pace, Peterson gets an edge on it, but it bounces in front of Dhoni

18.6

Bravo to Peterson, OUT, this one doesn't need any carry. Peterson tries the slog-sweep, Bravo stays straight and short of a length. Peterson misses, Bravo hits

RJ Peterson b Bravo 5 (5m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

End of over 19 (7 runs) Cape Cobras 140/7 (RR: 7.36)
     DJ Bravo    4-0-23-2
JM Kemp    3* (6b)      DE Bollinger    3-0-21-2

Right, what can Kemp do with this final over? Bollinger to bowl it

19.1

Bollinger to Kemp, 1 run, short of a length, slower ball, pulled straight to midwicket. Kemp is not happy

19.2

Bollinger to Philander, 1 run, short of a length again, Philander pushes it for one, "Over to you, skip."

19.3

Bollinger to Kemp, 1 run, Kemp gets just the delivery you want when batting at death... a length ball, normal pace, and he hits it into his own pad

19.4

Bollinger to Philander, no run, yorker outside off, Philander plays the wrong line. Dot

19.5

Bollinger to Philander, 1 run, low full toss, hit square on off, can't beat point

19.6

Bollinger to Kemp, 1 bye, what a disappointing effort from Kemp. Slower shortish ball, he slogs across it, makes no connection at all, and sneaks in a bye... five off 9 for Kemp

So have CSK pulled this game back enough? Just 21 runs in the last four overs. Just one boundary off the last 29 balls. Don't forget there is dew on the outfield and the moisture has sped the pitch up a little bit. So advantage Chennai, I would say right now. Do join us for the chase

JM Kemp    5* (9b)      DE Bollinger    4-0-25-2
VD Philander    2* (3b)      DJ Bravo    4-0-23-2
