Indian Premier League, 39th match: Chennai Super Kings v Deccan Chargers at Chennai, May 1, 2011
Chennai Super Kings won by 19 runs
1 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Ojha to Vijay, OUT, the old one-and-two, this one does not turn, is pitched shorter than the previous one, Vijay instinctively goes back for the cut, but to his horror, it is the arm ball, hurries on with the angle, and bowls him, talk about purchasing wickets in T20, Bishan Bedi would have been proud

M Vijay b Ojha 3 (14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Chennai Super Kings 18/1   MEK Hussey 10* (8b 1x4)   PP Ojha 0.4-0-1-1

Harmeet Singh to Hussey, OUT, Mishra's leg spin did not work last over, but Harmeet's long hop leg break works, short, flat and there to be hammered over the ropes, but Hussey launches in to a tame pull which nicely loops straight to deep square leg, big wicket

MEK Hussey c Sharma b Harmeet Singh 46 (41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 112.19

Chennai Super Kings 78/2   SK Raina 24* (20b 3x4)   Harmeet Singh 1.3-0-6-1

Ojha to Raina, OUT, this time Suresh goes, skips down the track again, and lifts Ojha with the turn to deep midwicket who runs some steps to his left and holds on comfortably, it is Shikhar

SK Raina c Dhawan b Ojha 59 (35b 6x4 2x6) SR: 168.57

Chennai Super Kings 136/3   MS Dhoni 20* (18b 1x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 2.5-0-18-2

Ojha to Dhoni, OUT, comes down the track, Ojha, smart bowling, drags it down, Dhoni swings it in to ground towards covers and sets off for the single, Albie is caught well short of his ground by the throw, 19 off 6, and gone, how is that for maximum impact

JA Morkel run out 19 (6b 0x4 3x6) SR: 316.66

Chennai Super Kings 157/4   MS Dhoni 21* (21b 1x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 3.1-0-18-2

Ojha to Dhoni, OUT, Dhoni looks to do a Raina and slog this one over midwicket, lunges forward and has a huge heave-ho, the ball turns sharply past him, SAnga can't get the bails off in the first attempt, manages to do so on the second try, by that time Dhoni's bat had completed the almighty swing and started to find its way back in to the crease, but after numerous replays, it seems the bails came off just before the bat was grounded, tight call

MS Dhoni st †Sangakkara b Ojha 21 (22b 1x4 1x6) SR: 95.45

Chennai Super Kings 162/5   S Badrinath 5* (2b 1x4)   PP Ojha 3.4-0-23-3
