Chennai Super Kings won by 21 runs
16 April 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

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


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


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


Ninan to Raina, 1 run, full outside off, pushed to long-off


Ninan to Hussey, no run, looks for the sweep, misses, hit on the pad


Ninan to Hussey, 2 runs, more pre-meditation, reverse-sweep this time, gets a full toss, connects it, puts pressure on deep point, comes back for two

Chennai Super Kings 54/1   R Ninan 1-0-9-1

Ninan to Raina, 1 run, nicely tossed up, pushed down to long-off for one


Ninan to Hussey, 1 run, sees him coming at hime, and pushes this wide of off, Hussey manages to get bat to it and chips it wide of long-off for one


Ninan to Raina, no run, quicker delivery, Raina opens the face but can't beat short third man


Ninan to Raina, 1 run, comes down the track, plays inside out, but Kohli is electric at long-off. Some other fielders might have conceded two here


Ninan to Hussey, 1 run, driven to long-off for another single


Ninan to Raina, 1 run, nicely tossed up again, and driven down the ground again, and Kohli does the fielding again

Chennai Super Kings 71/1   R Ninan 2-0-14-1

Ninan to Raina, FOUR, full toss on the pads, and Raina nicely lofts it over midwicket. Easy does it


Ninan to Raina, SIX, more effort behind this one, and more runs too. Takes half a step down the track, and flicks it powerfully over wide long-on. All the power comes from wrists here


Ninan to Raina, FOUR, and the best shot of the three! Comes down the ground and also makes room, and then lofts him over extra cover


Ninan to Raina, 2 runs, poor fielding at extra cover, this was hit straight at him, and through him


Ninan to Raina, OUT, too much greed! Looks for another big shot, but clearly is not close enough the pitch of the ball, and thus ends up looking to drag it onto the on side. The shot just hands in the air, and slices off towards extra cover, where Agarwal, one of the few Bangaloreans in the team, completes the catch

SK Raina c Agarwal b Ninan 29 (16b 3x4 1x6) SR: 181.25


Ninan to Hussey, 1 run, Hussey pushes this down to long-off for one

Chennai Super Kings 97/2   R Ninan 3-0-31-2
