van der Wath to Vijay, FOUR, Vijay rubs salt into wounds, by cross-batting this length delivery wide of Kaif at mid-on

4.5

van der Wath to Vijay, FOUR, when it rains, it pours. Poor bowling follows up poor fielding. The world just doesn't seem right to van der Wath. Gentle hit-me delivery on the pads with short fine leg up. Vijay lofts it duly over that fielder

4.6

van der Wath to Vijay, SIX, Vijay is definitely not looking the gift horse in the mouth. Another gentle length ball on the pads, and this time he goes further, clearing the ropes. First six of the innings

6.1

Ninan to Vijay, no run, Ryan Ninan tosses up a gentle full toss first ball, and it goes to extra cover on half-volley. Gets away with it

6.2

Ninan to Vijay, SIX, no getting away this time. Lovely shot from Vijay. Comes down the track, gets suitably close to the pitch of the ball, and lofts it over long-off

6.3

Ninan to Vijay, OUT, Brave, brave bowling. He flights it again, inviting Vijay to go for another six. Vijay obliges, looking for a replay of the previous shot, nearly gets it right. It's a matter of inches here, not close enough to the pitch of the ball, and hence gets more height on it than distance. Zaheer at long-off makes no mistake

M Vijay c Khan b Ninan 31 (21b 3x4 2x6) SR: 147.61

Chennai Super Kings 51/1   M Vijay 31 (21b 3x4 2x6)
