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

Khan to Hussey, FOUR, smashed it, absolutely smashed it, dancing down the track and lofting him over mid-on, as if Zaheer was a spinner

Chennai Super Kings 10/0   MEK Hussey 5* (8b 1x4)   Z Khan 1.1-0-6-0

Vettori to Vijay, FOUR, and more cat and mouse. Vettori bowls a leg-side yorker again, Vijay stands his ground and helps it around the corner. Around the corner, the short fine leg misfields, conceding four where there should have been none

Chennai Super Kings 18/0   M Vijay 9* (11b 1x4)   DL Vettori 1.5-0-8-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 23/0   M Vijay 13* (14b 2x4)   JJ van der Wath 0.4-0-5-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 27/0   M Vijay 17* (15b 3x4)   JJ van der Wath 0.5-0-9-0

Dilshan to Hussey, FOUR, Hussey has been setting up for the pull, and this shows why. He manufactures another pull and there is no one back on the leg side. Worth the risk as this one gets four

Chennai Super Kings 39/0   MEK Hussey 14* (16b 2x4)   TM Dilshan 0.3-0-6-0

Dilshan to Hussey, FOUR, fuller, on middle and leg, and Hussey sweeps this this time, over square leg. Runs have come a bit too easy in the last two overs

Chennai Super Kings 43/0   MEK Hussey 18* (17b 3x4)   TM Dilshan 0.4-0-10-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 59/1   MEK Hussey 25* (21b 4x4)   JJ van der Wath 1.2-0-20-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 64/1   SK Raina 6* (3b 1x4)   JJ van der Wath 1.5-0-25-0

Dilshan to Hussey, FOUR, reverse sweep, nay reverse pull! Gets into position early, not all the way down, just bent at the knee, and then slaps it towards what would have been point. Innovations

Chennai Super Kings 76/1   MEK Hussey 32* (26b 5x4)   TM Dilshan 1.2-0-17-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 84/1   SK Raina 17* (12b 2x4)   R Ninan 2.1-0-18-1

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

Chennai Super Kings 94/1   SK Raina 27* (14b 3x4 1x6)   R Ninan 2.3-0-28-1

Vettori to Hussey, FOUR, that's not a good parting shot from Vettori. Full, flat, outside leg, and Hussey helps it along its way over short fine leg

Chennai Super Kings 126/2   MEK Hussey 52* (42b 6x4 1x6)   DL Vettori 4-0-23-0

Kohli to Hussey, FOUR, nice shot, but the fielding is not so nice. Makes room and cuts this over extra cover where Asad Pathan lets it through his legs. Kohli is not pleased. Bangalore have been poor in the field, except for Kohli

Chennai Super Kings 133/2   MEK Hussey 57* (44b 7x4 1x6)   V Kohli 2.4-0-19-0

Kohli to Hussey, FOUR, poor bowling, full, on the pads, fine leg is up. Hussey gets it past that man

Chennai Super Kings 137/2   MEK Hussey 61* (46b 8x4 1x6)   V Kohli 3-0-23-0

Khan to Dhoni, FOUR, slower bouncer, Dhoni, his India captain, is waiting. And not the smartest delivery when third man is up. Dhoni guides it over the man

Chennai Super Kings 141/2   MS Dhoni 16* (14b 1x4)   Z Khan 2.1-0-13-0

Khan to Morkel, FOUR, angling too straight, Morkel gets a deflection wide of keeper and fine of the very square fine leg

Chennai Super Kings 153/3   JA Morkel 5* (2b 1x4)   Z Khan 3-0-25-1

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

Chennai Super Kings 157/3   MEK Hussey 66* (48b 9x4 1x6)   JJ van der Wath 2.1-0-31-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 167/3   MEK Hussey 75* (51b 10x4 1x6)   JJ van der Wath 2.5-0-41-0

Khan to Hussey, FOUR, Hussey's favourite pull shot. Gets to 80 now. Again set himself up early, as if he knows Zaheer is going to bowl short, and places it perfectly square of long leg

Chennai Super Kings 172/3   MEK Hussey 80* (53b 11x4 1x6)   Z Khan 3.1-0-29-1

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

Chennai Super Kings 183/4   S Badrinath 5* (2b 1x4)   JJ van der Wath 3.5-0-49-1
