6.5

Warne to Vijay, SIX, Vijay has sent the ball into the fortress wall. Tossed up on middle and leg, not so much of the Warne drift or loop. Vijay dances down the track, gets to the pitch easily and bangs him over long-on. Lovely hit.

6.6

Warne to Vijay, 1 run, Warne's not about to stop tossing them up, just yet. Fullish on the stumps again, Vijay pushes with the turn towards mid-off for one more.

8.1

Warne to Hussey, 1 run, Hussey comes out again, works Warne with the spin through midwicket for a single.

8.2

Warne to Vijay, no run, there you go Warne. Classy ball, slower, tempting outside off, drifting away slightly and then spinning big away from Vijay who misses it by a mile.

8.3

Warne to Vijay, 1 run, better feet, Vijay gets to the pitch and drives into the covers.

8.4

Warne to Hussey, FOUR, only Hussey knows how he plays this shot. He leaps out to Warne, gets to the flight and then lofts it over midwicket without breaking a sweat.

8.5

Warne to Hussey, no run, Warne shortens the length, Hussey is not to the pitch and pushes it away to midwicket.

8.6

Warne to Hussey, 1 run, Warne looks to drift one onto the pads, Hussey is in a bit of strife but ends up playing a falling paddle sweep for a single.

Chennai Super Kings 77/0   SK Warne 2-0-18-0

10.1

Warne to Raina, 1 run, short and flat from Warne, Raina swivel pulls to deep backward square leg.

10.2

Warne to Vijay, 1 wide, too wide outside off, Vijay lets it go and it is called.

10.2

Warne to Vijay, no run, more air, Vijay pushes it with the turn towards point but can't get the single

10.3

Warne to Vijay, 1 run, Vijay mis-hits one for a change. He leaps out, can't get to the pitch and lofts with the spin without timing towards long-off.

10.4

Warne to Raina, no run, drift in towards the pads, Raina leans out and defends.

10.5

Warne to Raina, 1 run, flighted outside off, Raina pushes towards long off for one

10.6

Warne to Vijay, 1 run, lovely ball, nearly owned Vijay there as he first thought of advancing, and then belatedly realised it was the quicker one homing in on off stump. Vijay is good enough to hang back and defend into the off side.

Chennai Super Kings 89/1   SK Warne 3-0-23-0

14.1

Warne to Raina, FOUR, Raina picked his spot an hour early. This was always going over square leg. Warne helped it by dropping short on off, and Raina pounced on it with a pull shot. Longer boundary, meant he only got four.

14.2

Warne to Raina, FOUR, Warne is standing mid-pitch with his arms crossed. This isn't fun. Raina is toying with him. Tossed up on off and breaking in, Raina cover drives against the spin and eludes a diving Menaria inside the circle to pick up four more.

14.3

Warne to Raina, 1 run, heaved into the leg side, there is a sweeper on midwicket now and they get just one.

14.4

Warne to Vijay, 1 wide, Warne's clearly concerned by the short boundary, and lands this miles outside off.

14.4

Warne to Vijay, OUT, do we finally have a run out? Thirs umpire called for. Tossed up on middle and leg, Vijay looks to sweep and is too early in the shot. It takes the toe end of the bat and runs towards backward point. This time, Raina ran hard and Vijay trotted listlessly. The direct throw from Botha caught him short at the bowler's end by a few inches. Vijay is livid with himself, and rightly so.

M Vijay run out 53 (40b 2x4 3x6) SR: 132.50

14.5

Warne to Raina, 1 run, loopy ball outside off, Raina pushes down to long off for a single.

14.6

Warne to Dhoni, no run, ripping turner away from MSD from outside off, he plays a cut and gets it away to point.

Chennai Super Kings 136/2   SK Warne 4-0-34-0
