Pathan to Vijay, no run, well bowled Irfan, very full, almost in the blockhole, curving in to Vijay, who does not commit full forward and digs it out as it comes in

Chennai Super Kings 7/1   M Vijay 2* (3b)

Pathan to Vijay, FOUR, Vijay this time, superb stroke, lets this full delivery come on, again not committing fully forward, and pushes it without much followthrough, bat and pad close together, it is timed so well that non-striker has to quickly get out of the way


Pathan to Vijay, no run, now and then, Irfan slips in the one that goes straight on with the angle, quite a change for the batsman expecting it to come back in, and ends up pushing inside the line as it rushes past


Pathan to Vijay, no run, played out on the leg side as this one comes back in from short of a length


Pathan to Vijay, 1 run, comes forward and pushes this length ball going across, in the air and on the bounce to cover, they take the fielder on, Vijay would have been out by miles had the throw hit


Pathan to Vijay, 2 runs, silken touch from Vijay, full delivery on the pads, he does not over hit, does not even hit, just twirls the wrists to send it in the gap between mid on and midwicket

Chennai Super Kings 25/1   M Vijay 9* (8b 1x4)

Aaron to Vijay, no run, gets a lot of carry on this one from back of a length, he goes for the cut on the toes but is beaten


Aaron to Vijay, no run, this one is much fuller, and Vijay times it off the front foot but straight to mid on


Aaron to Vijay, no run, another one banged in short at 147.6 kph, but well outside off stump and he lets it go, keeper takes it high near the head


Aaron to Vijay, no run, 128.6 kph this time but well-directed short one, Vijay gets out of the way as it takes off


Aaron to Vijay, 1 run, eased in to the gap between midwicket and mid on off the pads, but Ingram comes charging in from midwicket and his diving stop saves the runs

Chennai Super Kings 27/1   M Vijay 10* (13b 1x4)

Agarkar to Vijay, SIX, and first ball Vijay greets him with that pick-up pull off a back of a length ball, sends it high and over the deep midwicket boundary


Agarkar to Vijay, no run, this one stops a bit on Vijay as he comes forward and he ends up pushing it in the air, but well to the right of Ajit


Agarkar to Vijay, SIX, another one, he plays this shot so well, this one was on a length, Vijay lets it come on and lofts with as clean a swing of the bat as possible over long on


Agarkar to Vijay, no run, now Ajit digs in the bouncer, vijay swerves out of the way calmly


Agarkar to Vijay, no run, this one comes slowly from short of a length, and Vijay pushes it away to point

Chennai Super Kings 39/1   M Vijay 22* (19b 1x4 2x6)

Aaron to Vijay, no run, goes for a loose waft from the crease to one short and wide outside off stump, and is beaten


Aaron to Vijay, no run, 131.2 kph another short one, that length is working well for Aaron, angles in the bouncer, and Vijay gets out of the way fast


Aaron to Vijay, 1 run, dropped cracked by Vijay, he backed away a shade and just smoked this fuller one, Hopes it was at cover who got to the screamer with a dive but put it down, how much will that cost Delhi?

Chennai Super Kings 42/2   M Vijay 23* (22b 1x4 2x6)

Nadeem to Vijay, no run, another drop simple chance, this one stops on the batsman who pushes hard at it and it travels at a nice height to NAdeem who clangs it, Delhi have no one to blame but themselves


Nadeem to Vijay, 1 run, punched off the back foot to long off

Chennai Super Kings 43/2   M Vijay 24* (24b 1x4 2x6)

Hopes to Vijay, no run, fields on his followthrough as a back of a length ball is pushed to him


Hopes to Vijay, 1 run, Delhi have been bowling consistently short, Vijay goes for the pull, is not in control but gets it away towards deep square leg


Hopes to Vijay, 1 run, one more short delivery angled in to the body, almost as if he is expecting it he connects with the pull, but does not time it well enough, midwicket fields

Chennai Super Kings 46/2   M Vijay 26* (27b 1x4 2x6)

Nadeem to Vijay, 2 runs, goes back to flick it away through midwicket, they come back for the second as well, good running

Chennai Super Kings 55/2   M Vijay 29* (29b 1x4 2x6)

Hopes to Vijay, FOUR, what a shot! Vijay gets a full ball on middle, and whips it in the air, that seemed to stop a bit on him, but his timing has been so good that it fairly flew in to the wide long on boundary


Hopes to Vijay, 1 run, another one stops on Vijay, this time he almost hits it back to the bowler, takes a single as it rolls down the ground


Hopes to Vijay, 1 run, goes for the pull straight away to the short ball but there is a man at deep square leg

Chennai Super Kings 62/2   M Vijay 35* (32b 2x4 2x6)

Agarkar to Vijay, OUT, what a well-timed catch from Venu, Ajit gets away with a low full toss, not for the first time in his career, Vijay had stepped back, leaned and swung it right off the middle of the bat, and it seemed headed for another maximum before Rao got on his toes and took a head-high catch inches from the ropes

M Vijay c Venugopal Rao b Agarkar 35 (33b 2x4 2x6) SR: 106.06

Chennai Super Kings 68/3   M Vijay 35 (33b 2x4 2x6)
