Indian Premier League - 14th match

Chennai Super Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore

Chennai Super Kings won by 21 runs

4.1

van der Wath to Hussey, no run, Hussey looks to pull, and there is length to do so, but he finds midwicket with this one

4.2

van der Wath to Hussey, 1 run, Bangalore are fielding poorly here! Kaif this time. One of the better fielders in domestic cricket. Hussey looks to loft over mid-off, mishits, Kaif runs back, gets under it, still running back, and lets it through his hands

4.3

van der Wath to Vijay, no run, full on middle and leg, played back to the bowler

4.4

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

Chennai Super Kings 33/0   JJ van der Wath 1-0-15-0

7.1

van der Wath to Raina, 1 run, slower ball, dropped towards cover, and they steal a single

7.2

van der Wath to Hussey, FOUR, pulled away off the front foot, Hussey seems to like van der Wath's lack of pace and is setting himself up for the pull every time

7.3

van der Wath to Hussey, no run, goes for another pull, but this doesn't bounce enough, and passes under his bat

7.4

van der Wath to Hussey, 1 run, shimmies down the track, sees the slower ball, and pushes it wide of cover for one

7.5

van der Wath to Raina, FOUR, nice shot, making room, backing away, and opening the face on a chest-high delivery, getting it fine of third man. Not much wrong with this delivery

7.6

van der Wath to Raina, 1 wide, this was the mean bouncer, like he meant it this time, 140ks, Tony Hill calls it a wide for height. No country for fast men

7.6

van der Wath to Raina, 1 run, shuffles inside the line of a short delivery and helps it away to fine leg for one

Chennai Super Kings 66/1   JJ van der Wath 2-0-27-0

17.1

van der Wath to Hussey, FOUR, length ball, gentle pace, outside off, Hussey makes room and lofts him over point. van der Wath can't keep bowling length at his pace

17.2

van der Wath to Hussey, 3 runs, another drop! Bangalore won't be able to catch a cold at North Pole. Slower ball from van der Wath, and Hussey skies it towards sweeper-cover where Asad Patahan - yes, you guessed it - misjudges, doesn't get into position, and lets it through his butter fingers

17.3

van der Wath to Morkel, 1 run

17.4

van der Wath to Hussey, 2 runs, Dilshan provides Bangalore fielders a hint of redemption. Hussey nicely squeezes this yorker fine of third man but a diving Dilshan saves two runs

17.5

van der Wath to Hussey, FOUR, Hussey can't get out today! no he can't. Another mis-hit this time, and it goes inches straight of a diving Agarwal at long-on. what's more? it bounces over for four too

17.6

van der Wath to Hussey, 1 run, full delivery, hit to long-on for one

Chennai Super Kings 168/3   JJ van der Wath 3-0-42-0

19.1

van der Wath to Morkel, OUT, However, Bangalore hold onto one! Morkel again plays a poor shot in what has been an unremarkable innings, Agarwal runs from long-on to his right to complete the catch. Morkel struggled to time throughout his effort. Vettori applauds the effort. Is he being sarcastic? I would suppose not

JA Morkel c Agarwal b van der Wath 9 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

19.2

van der Wath to Hussey, 1 run, nice yorker, just a single for Hussey

19.3

van der Wath to Badrinath, 1 run, slower short ball with the mid-off up, hit towards the same fielder

19.4

van der Wath to Hussey, 1 run, sees him charge at him, pushes this wide of off, Hussey connects with the open face but can't beat point

19.5

van der Wath to Badrinath, FOUR, top shot, makes room, gets on a knee, and goes inside-out on this length ball. Good to watch

19.6

van der Wath to Badrinath, OUT, this is short, Badri gives it an almighty heave but ends up slicing it to extra cover, where another catch has been taken, which is surprising going by Bangalore's fielding effort in the day

S Badrinath c Ninan b van der Wath 5 (3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

Chennai Super Kings 183/5   JJ van der Wath 4-0-49-2
