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


Agarkar to Vijay, no run, 122.2 kph slower one. Vijay is early in to the pull shot and the ball goes on the bounce to the keeper

Chennai Super Kings 39/1   AB Agarkar 1-0-12-0

Agarkar to Badrinath, 1 run, 120.5 kph slower and fuller one angled in on middle and leg, pushed away towards mid on for a run


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

Agarkar to Dhoni, 1 run, short of a length outside off stump and punched away to sweeper cover


Agarkar to Badrinath, 1 run, another top edge falls in no man's land, there have been a few today, another short ball in to the body, goes for the pull, the edge falls in front of long leg running in


Agarkar to Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni gets the single down to sweeper cover again


Agarkar to Badrinath, 1 leg bye, angled in on the pads, skids off a length, Badri tries to make room and flick it away but takes it on the pads


Agarkar to Dhoni, FOUR, too much of the short of a length stuff today, this one is shorter, Dhoni needs no invitation, rocks back and plays a belter of a pull that sends the ball in to the deep midwicket boundary


Agarkar to Dhoni, FOUR, cheeky from dhoni, walks across, takes it from middle stump and turns the wrists to send it in the air but well past short fine leg

Chennai Super Kings 117/3   AB Agarkar 3-0-29-1

Agarkar to Badrinath, 1 run, looks to launch a length ball over midwicket, but it hurries on to him and he mistimes it towards the man in the circle, Badri has not been at his best today


Agarkar to Dhoni, SIX, this could be the over, Dhoni stays in the crease, gets a fuller one, and just lifts it high over the off side, sweeper cover watches it sail over him, graceful from Dhoni, not many times you can use that word about him


Agarkar to Dhoni, 1 run, plays a murderous pull shot but right to the man at deep midwicket


Agarkar to Badrinath, SIX, full toss, Badri capitalises, stands erect and turns the face to time it high over deep midwicket, pure timing, super shot from Badri


Agarkar to Badrinath, FOUR, Agarkar has lost the plot in his last over completely, low full this time, wide outside off stump, Badri wills it past backward point with a delicate steer


Agarkar to Badrinath, 2 runs, bangs in the short ball and Badri goes for the pull now, for the umpteenth time a top edge manages to evade the field, this one falls in front of Aaron coming to his right at long leg

Chennai Super Kings 159/3   AB Agarkar 4-0-49-1
