Chennai Super Kings won by 58 runs
28 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)
18.3

Aravind to Raina, no run, short ball straight away, and nearly a hat-trick for the team. Raina doesn't like these short balls, he hangs back in the crease and taps the pull to square leg. He wanted one, Morkel didn't and Vettori misses with Raina well out.

Aravind to Raina, 1 wide, another bouncer, this time too short and it is called a wide.

Aravind to Raina, SIX, we have seen a few sixes today, and I dare say this was the best. Raina knows another short ball may be round the corner, so you think he is going to be a little late to move forward when Aravind pitches it up outside off. Nothing like it. Raina reaches out, gets outside the line and bangs it over extra cover, on the up, inside out. That hardly took off, but easily cleared the rope.

Aravind to Raina, 1 run, another short ball, this time Raina mistimes the pull to an untenanted wide long-on area for a single.

Chennai Super Kings 196/3   SK Raina 7* (3b 1x6)

Gayle to Raina, 1 run, full on off stump, Raina hits it hard but straight to cover. Single taken.

19.5

Gayle to Raina, OUT, Bangalore were keeping their best for the last over. Raina goes now, another full ball from the Jamaican sneaks past the big mow over the leg side and disturbs the furniture. On a hat-trick.

SK Raina b Gayle 8 (5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 160.00

Chennai Super Kings 199/5   SK Raina 8 (5b 1x6)
