Indian Premier League, 52nd match: Rajasthan Royals v Chennai Super Kings at Jaipur, May 9, 2011
Chennai Super Kings won by 63 runs
9 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

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.

Chennai Super Kings 65/0   M Vijay 23* (20b 1x4 1x6)   SK Warne 0.5-0-10-0

Botha to Vijay, SIX, Vijay's shifting gears rapidly. He advances to Botha's flight once again, and launches him straight for a boundary. Just over the ropes too.

Chennai Super Kings 84/1   M Vijay 34* (27b 1x4 2x6)   J Botha 2.5-0-19-1

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.

Chennai Super Kings 110/1   M Vijay 51* (36b 2x4 3x6)   SK Trivedi 0.2-0-8-0

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.

Chennai Super Kings 146/2   MS Dhoni 8* (6b 1x6)   SK Trivedi 1.1-0-21-0

Watson to Dhoni, SIX, thumped. Watson pitches further up, Dhoni pulls put the roundhouse kick and sends this packing over the straight boundary. Length ball, in the Dhoni swinging range and he brutalises it. He's pranced away to 31 off 14 balls.

Chennai Super Kings 175/2   MS Dhoni 31* (14b 3x4 2x6)   SR Watson 3-0-39-0

Singh to Dhoni, SIX, It's one of those Dhoni nights in Jaipur. Anything on a length is going to be deposited high and far. Amit Singh's pace lends itself to this brand of violence, and Dhoni ensures it doesn't escape punishment. Butchered over long-on with one clean swing. Watch out, folks in the stands.

Chennai Super Kings 188/3   MS Dhoni 37* (15b 3x4 3x6)   A Singh 4-0-40-1
