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

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   MEK Hussey 19* (18b 3x4)   R Ninan 0.3-0-6-1

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

Chennai Super Kings 96/2   MEK Hussey 34* (28b 5x4)   R Ninan 2.5-0-30-2

Khan to Dhoni, OUT, Zak gets his own back. Goes round the wicket, angles it in, gets it to hold its line the slightest bit, thus getting the slight outside edge from Dhoni, who walks. rarely does Zaheer not have the final word

MS Dhoni c †de Villiers b Khan 22 (16b 1x4 1x6) SR: 137.50

Chennai Super Kings 147/3   MEK Hussey 61* (46b 8x4 1x6)   Z Khan 2.3-0-19-1

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

Chennai Super Kings 176/4   MEK Hussey 81* (54b 11x4 1x6)   JJ van der Wath 3.1-0-42-1

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   MEK Hussey 83* (56b 11x4 1x6)   JJ van der Wath 4-0-49-2
