View dismissal M Vijay b Ojha 3 14 0 0 21.42
3.4 the old one-and-two, this one does not turn, is pitched shorter than the previous one, Vijay instinctively goes back for the cut, but to his horror, it is the arm ball, hurries on with the angle, and bowls him, talk about purchasing wickets in T20, Bishan Bedi would have been proud 18/1
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Sharma b Harmeet Singh 46 41 5 0 112.19
12.3 Mishra's leg spin did not work last over, but Harmeet's long hop leg break works, short, flat and there to be hammered over the ropes, but Hussey launches in to a tame pull which nicely loops straight to deep square leg, big wicket 78/2
View dismissal SK Raina c Dhawan b Ojha 59 35 6 2 168.57
17.5 this time Suresh goes, skips down the track again, and lifts Ojha with the turn to deep midwicket who runs some steps to his left and holds on comfortably, it is Shikhar 136/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† st †Sangakkara b Ojha 21 22 1 1 95.45
19.4 Dhoni looks to do a Raina and slog this one over midwicket, lunges forward and has a huge heave-ho, the ball turns sharply past him, SAnga can't get the bails off in the first attempt, manages to do so on the second try, by that time Dhoni's bat had completed the almighty swing and started to find its way back in to the crease, but after numerous replays, it seems the bails came off just before the bat was grounded, tight call 162/5
View dismissal JA Morkel run out (White/†Sangakkara) 19 6 0 3 316.66
19.1 Ojha to Dhoni, comes down the track, Ojha, smart bowling, drags it down, Dhoni swings it in to ground towards covers and sets off for the single, Albie is caught well short of his ground by the throw, 19 off 6, and gone, how is that for maximum impact 157/4

View dismissal S Sohal b Jakati 56 30 6 4 186.66
6.5 move aside Misbah, Sohal the conjurer has thought of a unique dismissal, a low full toss pushed through quicker, and what does out man do, he sets himself up for another reverse sweep and as always, gives it his all, the ball dips on him and hits leg stump, between his legs too, just for effect, gone now but it was fun while it lasted, not for chennai though 71/1
View dismissal S Dhawan b Jakati 19 27 0 0 70.37
