2.1 there have been plenty of dropped catches this season, but this time Raina takes a terrific catch, Mayank has flopped, a length ball and Mayank wanted to play that inside-out, bat turns as he plays that and the ball loops towards cover, Raina has some ground to cover, he sprints to his left and pouches that one 8/1
View dismissal M Vijay c du Plessis b Sharma 11 15 12 2 0 91.66
3.3 Faf du Plessis has pulled off quite a stunner! Vijay looked to clear the straight boundary, it was high in the air and du Plessis was running back from mid-off, the running catches are the toughest, hung on to it and fell backwards 15/2
View dismissal KD Karthik*† b Ashwin 21 50 22 2 0 95.45
12.1 One Chennai boy bowls another, Ashwin was bowling round the wicket, Karthik made a lot of room early on looking to push it to the off side, he may have expected turn but it went straight through and knocked the middle stump 74/6
View dismissal MK Tiwary c du Plessis b Pandey 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
4.2 Faf du Plessis is pulling off stunners out of habit tonight! Take a bow! Tiwary made a lot of room and charged down the track looking to clear the off side, unfortunately he made too much room and the ball spooned off the bottom of the bat, du Plessis ran backwards at mid-off and hung on on the dive just as the ball was leaving him, du Plessis covered a lot of ground getting to the ball, amazing stuff 17/3

View dismissal JDS Neesham c Raina b Jadeja 22 17 15 2 0 146.66

View dismissal Mohammed Shami c McCullum b Ashwin 1 2 3 0 0 33.33
