2.2

Mohammad Sami to Vignesh, OUT, timber. Sami has his man as Vignesh is backing away even as the ball is being bowled and pays the penalty as he fails to read the length and is looking to loft it away but all he manages to get is an edge onto his off stump. The look on Law's face said it all

G Vignesh b Mohammad Sami 6 (10m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Chennai Superstars 19/1   IJ Harvey 12* (9b 1x4)   Mohammad Sami 1.2-0-10-1

5.3

Naved-ul-Hasan to Harvey, OUT, and Rana has his man as he bowls one fuller outside the off stump and Harvey is lured into the stroke as he is looking to loft it away but the bat turns in his hand and the ball is spooned up to Saqlain Musthaq at mid-off

IJ Harvey c Saqlain Mushtaq b Naved-ul-Hasan 29 (26m 21b 5x4 0x6) SR: 138.09

9.5

Saqlain Mushtaq to Arnold, OUT, the wily magician is at it now. Saqlain bowls a doosra outside the off stump, Arnold picks it off the pitch and is looking to defend it but it breaches all the barriers and takes out the off-stump. Isn't Saqlain ecstatic ?

Chennai Superstars 85/3   HK Badani 17* (15b 1x4)   Saqlain Mushtaq 1.5-0-9-1

15.4

Saqlain Mushtaq to Badani, OUT, Saqlain has his man. Badani, is looking to come down the track and loft it away over long-off. He fails to read the straight delivery and is castled. Doesn't the wicket come at the right time for the Badshahs?

HK Badani b Saqlain Mushtaq 37 (47m 29b 2x4 1x6) SR: 127.58

Chennai Superstars 135/4   R Sathish 29* (21b 4x4)   Saqlain Mushtaq 3.4-0-23-2

16.6

Naved-ul-Hasan to Law, OUT, whispering death this as Rana bowls a slower delivery outside the off stump. Law, moves back and is looking to loft it away but all that he manages is a feathered outside edge back to the keeper and Rana, again gets the breakthrough

17.4

Shahid Nazir to Sathish, OUT, short outside the off stump. Sathish gets onto the back foot and is looking to pull it away. He plays the stroke a touch too early as he gets a top edge that flies straight into the hands of Sami, positioned at third man

Chennai Superstars 150/7   SV Saravanan 3* (3b)   Naved-ul-Hasan 3.4-0-23-3
