View dismissal G Gambhir c †Dhoni b Balaji 0 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 And Bala has struck first ball. It looked like a harmless leave. Gambhir walked a couple of steps down, and while shouldering arms he could have got en edge to it. Not clear from replays so far. It moved in a bit, and brushed the glove on the way. What a start for Chennai 0/1
View dismissal V Sehwag* c Morkel b Gony 6 9 1 0 66.66
1.6 the was coming all along, Sehwag has not at all looked good today, and here he puiills a delivery that is too full, and he top-edges it this time, lobbing it to Morkel at mid-on. So the underdogs of this openeing battle, Bala and Gony, have struck once each. Sehwag and Gambhir gone 8/2
AB de Villiers not out 105 54 5 6 194.44
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Raina b Morkel 50 27 7 2 185.18
8.3 out to a fulltoss, it's on the stumps, maybe leg, and Dilshan looks to make room, but can't get enough room to get the elevation to clear Suresh Raina at extra cover. Some might say a lucky wicket, but the pressure from previous two dot balls worked. At any rate, what a little gem from Dilshan 76/3
View dismissal KD Karthik c Flintoff b Balaji 18 16 2 0 112.50
13.6 and he gets his Ranji captain, luckily, though, this was a poor delivery, full and on the pads, Karthik connected but couldn't get enough power. And what a cool catch from Flintoff yards inside the square-leg fence, he moved to his right, and just about got his fingers under it 114/4
View dismissal MK Tiwary c Flintoff b Balaji 9 13 1 0 69.23
19.5 and Bala gets Tiwary with a slower one this time, scratchy innings this has been. Under 100ks, and Tiwary gets more height and less distance in his flick and holes out to Flintoff at square-leg fence 188/5

View dismissal PA Patel c de Villiers b Sangwan 16 15 2 0 106.66
5.2 drilled straight up AB's throat, this was a wide half-volley, should have been hit. Hit it was, but straight to AB at covers, and despite the pace behind the ball, it was a fairly easy catch for a fielder of AB's standard 57/1
View dismissal ML Hayden c Nannes b Sangwan 57 27 5 3 211.11
7.6 and the extra ball because of the no-ball gets Sangwan the big wicket of Hayden, what a big moment, this was short but maybe not short enough for the pull, and Hayden top-edges it for a simple catch for Nannes running in from long-on 90/2
View dismissal SK Raina c de Villiers b Sangwan 41 27 5 1 151.85
14.1 what a bowling change, and Sangwan's golden spell continues, Raina tries his trademark pull over midwicket, but this it a touch too full to try that, and he hets more elevation than distance, and AB judgest the catch to perfection at the wide long-on boundary 139/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Karthik b Vettori 5 7 0 0 71.42
10.3 and Vettori strikes, this is quicker and flatter, Dhoni looks to force it through the off side, gets an edge, Karthik, wearing the baseball mask he got from Peter McGlashan, juggles it but catches the rebound. Delhi are back through the old wizard 108/3
View dismissal A Flintoff c sub (DA Warner) b Nehra 16 17 1 0 94.11
15.6 Nehra strikes. Flintoff goes. slower ball again, and Flintoff is early into this loft, chipping it to Warner at long-off, what a twist 156/5
JA Morkel not out 13 14 1 0 92.85
View dismissal S Badrinath c sub (DA Warner) b Vettori 7 8 0 0 87.50
18.3 a dot ball, and a wicket, Badri, who looked out of place through the innings, steps out, and hits a flat delivery straight to Warner, the substitute, at long-off. How Delhi have come back. Good move too, to keep Vettori for the death 168/6
View dismissal MS Gony run out (Sehwag/Vettori) 6 2 0 1 300.00
18.6 from Vettori, and he has run himself out now, hit powerfully towards Sehwag at cover, who underarms it to Vettori, and Gony is slow and short of the crease. What a twist. The crucial second was lost in this run-out because of a near-collission between the batsmen 175/7
View dismissal Joginder Sharma run out (sub [DA Warner]) 4 3 0 0 133.33
19.3 from Nannes, Warner, the substitute, makes the difference again. Joginder hit a fullish delivery straight to mid-off and ran, and gave up half-way through, and Warner hit the middle stump out of the ground 179/8
View dismissal L Balaji run out (Sangwan/Nannes) 0 0 0 0 -
19.4 Nannes to Morkel, this is not smart from Bala, Morkel fails to hit a full and wide delivery, but Bala for some reason wants the single, Morkel doesn't. Sangwan from cover flicks it to the bowler, and Bala is at the strikers' end 179/9
