Botha to Hussey, no run, huge appeal for lbw, Hussey survives. Boy, they may have changed the pitch, but it still turns a mile! This was landing close to leg stump from round the stumps, Hussey thought it was going down and let it go. It turned back big and hit his pad. The umpire got it right, it was pitching outside leg. Hussey looked quite worried for a moment.

Botha to Hussey, no run

Botha to Hussey, FOUR, aha, Hussey leaps out to get to the pitch and then smears Botha with the turn through the covers for four. Rajasthan call for the time-out. Something to break CSK's momentum.

9.2

Botha to Hussey, OUT, yorked him! Botha's nailed Hussey with some very brave bowling. It is a short boundary on the leg side, there's no midwicket, and he asks Hussey to go for the big slog sweep. Hussey goes for it, but the ball is through very fast and he can't get under it. Leg stump out of the turf.
