4.1

Khan to Raina, OUT, Raina departs, he tries to launch in to the big slog-swat over deep midwicket, the short ball hurries on to him, he is late on the shot and gets a big top-edge that goes in to the hands of point, Zaheer first looks incredulously at Raina for attempting that kind of shot off him, then gives a send-off

13.3

Kohli to Saha, OUT, Virat Kohli picks up a wicket with a long hop, back of a length and sitting up, Saha had lots of options, bent the knee and played a swat-sweep kind of stroke that carried right to the man at deep square leg, Virat is smiling at his fortune, the ball got on a touch quickly to the batsman

WP Saha c Pomersbach b Kohli 22 (38m 30b 1x4 1x6) SR: 73.33

15.1

Vettori to Bravo, OUT, Dan it is, the arm ball gets Bravo, tossed up around off and gets him to push forward outside the line for the turn, there isn't any turn, Bravo seemed to have got an inside edge on to pad, or did he, uimpire Hariharan through there was none, AB the ever-alert man had already got to the ball in front of Dwayne and taken the bails off, the ball would have just taken top off off

DJ Bravo lbw b Vettori 5 (6m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Chennai Super Kings 79/6   MS Dhoni 29* (24b 1x4 2x6)   DL Vettori 3.1-0-12-2

17.4

Mithun to Morkel, OUT, Zaheer takes the steepler, keeps his eyes on the ball all long, Morkel this time went for his favourite hitting zone over deep midwicket, but gets it off the toe end of the bat high in the sky, Zaheer watches it like a hawk at midwicket and takes a tumbling catch in the end

JA Morkel c Khan b Mithun 5 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55
