22 May 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Gayle to Dhoni, SIX, there goes Dhoni, gets a bit of air on the ball, full around off stump, and Dhoni cranks up for the big swing and hammers it with the turn way over long on

Chennai Super Kings 43/4   MS Dhoni 12* (10b 1x4 1x6)   CH Gayle 0.2-0-7-0

Gayle to Saha, SIX, Saha gets maximum, the slog sweep, takes a step out, goes down on the knee, it is a flat and full ball so he goes flat and full over the man at deep midwicket

Chennai Super Kings 54/4   WP Saha 21* (25b 1x4 1x6)   CH Gayle 1.1-0-14-0

Gayle to Dhoni, SIX, that'll do for Dhoni, that is his zone, full and just about enough in the slot for him to get underneath and he smokes it over the bowler's head

Chennai Super Kings 74/5   MS Dhoni 25* (21b 1x4 2x6)   CH Gayle 2.2-0-22-0

Mithun to Dhoni, SIX, Dhoni gives it everything, length ball and he tries to kill it over deep midwicket, but the outside edge flies over third man for six, well then

Chennai Super Kings 99/6   MS Dhoni 43* (29b 2x4 3x6)   A Mithun 2.2-0-15-0

Aravind to Dhoni, SIX, that will be fifty for the India captain, just takes a step or two towards the pitch of the length ball, and whips it with those powerful wrists high over deep midwicket

Chennai Super Kings 109/7   MS Dhoni 51* (32b 2x4 4x6)   S Aravind 3.3-0-18-1

Mithun to Dhoni, SIX, this could turn out to be expensive for Bangalore, Dhoni sets himself up in the crease, gets back leg deep in the crease, and hammers a short of a length ball in to the crowd over deep midwicket

Chennai Super Kings 117/8   MS Dhoni 59* (35b 2x4 5x6)   A Mithun 3.1-0-24-1

Mithun to Dhoni, SIX, that is why he did not take the single, what a shot, some timing, some power, some combination, low full toss on the pads, Dhoni just flicks it with a huge backlift and the ball disappears over deep midwicket

Chennai Super Kings 127/8   MS Dhoni 69* (38b 3x4 6x6)   A Mithun 3.4-0-34-1
