9 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Trivedi to Vijay, 2 runs, slower ball on the pads, Vijay turns it away through midwicket for a couple. They are running like the wind.


Trivedi to Vijay, SIX, Jaipur, get some protection. Vijay is in that mood today. Length ball, angles into the body from off and he moves the front foot across and slaps it over square leg for six. Fifty for the man.


Trivedi to Vijay, 1 run, slower ball, comes onto the pads and Vijay waits to nudge it through square leg for one.


Trivedi to Raina, 2 runs, length ball outside off, played down to long on for two more.


Trivedi to Raina, no run, angled in from very wide of the crease, he's close to cutting the return crease. Raina has a big swish outside off and misses.


Trivedi to Raina, FOUR, clatter. The short boundary is really short. Back of a length ball outside off, Raina stands tall and thumps it on the up through the covers. The sweeper is there for effect, he has no chance.

Chennai Super Kings 117/1   SK Trivedi 1-0-15-0

Trivedi to Dhoni, SIX, aha, Dhoni has deposited Trivedi deep into the Pink City. He didn't advance out his crease as much as run down it. Trivedi landed it on a length, and Dhoni oblinged by carting it onto the roof of the first tier.


Trivedi to Dhoni, 2 runs, short again, Trivedi's usual variation in pace, Dhoni backs away waits and smites over the covers.


Trivedi to Dhoni, FOUR, this is abject bowling. Trivedi sends down a listless full toss a foot and a bit outside off and Dhoni throws his bat at it. Thick edge runs aqay between point and third man.


Trivedi to Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni was looking for two, but gets just one. Length ball on off stump, he chips it away to midwicket for a single with soft hands, but not soft enough.


Trivedi to Raina, 1 run, short ball to Raina, he rolls the wrists over the pull and gets a single to midwicket.


Trivedi to Dhoni, FOUR, Rajasthan have tried too hard to protect the shorter boundary today, and have leaked runs on the other side. Trivedi wafts another slowish ball well outside off and Dhoni whacks it through cover-point for four more. Poor, poor bowling.

Chennai Super Kings 158/2   SK Trivedi 2-0-33-0
