Indian Premier League, Final: Chennai Super Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore at Chennai, May 28, 2011
Chennai Super Kings won by 58 runs
28 May 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Mithun to Hussey, 2 runs, another couple taken, this must be driving Vettori mad. Short of a length outside off, Hussey stays back and dabs through backward point. Some serious sprinting between the wickets happening here.


Mithun to Hussey, 1 run, fuller from Mithun, Hussey forces it into the covers and settles for the single this time.


Mithun to Vijay, 1 run, short of a length and coming in, CSK seem to be playing within themselves here. Vijay drives to long-on for an easy single


Mithun to Hussey, 2 runs, interesting shot, even more interesting fielding. Hussey charges out, and chips Mithun right over his head and very straight. Mayank moves across swiftly from long-off and swoops in on the ball, a couple of feet in front of the boundary, and parries it over to long-on who throws it back.


Mithun to Hussey, FOUR, first four of the match! Bumper at 135 kph, Hussey has a year or so to play the shot, and he waits and waits after getting into position. And then he unfurls a cracking pull.


Mithun to Hussey, 2 runs, good start to Mithun's over, not the best finish though. Hussey opens the face daintily and guides him to third man. Once it goes outside the circle, these batsmen are looking at a minimum of two. Every time.

Chennai Super Kings 73/0   A Mithun 1-0-12-0

Mithun to Vijay, no run, nice bouncer, caught Vijay unawares and he chose to let it go just outside off.


Mithun to Vijay, FOUR, they dropped catches off Chennai in the final of IPL 2010. They have dropped catches off Chennai in IPL 2011. And they are still doing it in the final. Length ball, angles into Vijay who helps it along over midwicket. Ended up timing the lofted chip better than he wanted, and Pomersbach was patrolling the fence. He ran back and tried to take it, but it slipped through. No cool hand, Luke.


Mithun to Vijay, no run, lazy shot, but Vijay survives. It is full and on the stumps, he tries to hang back in the crease and thump it hard straight down the ground. Gets a thick under edge away. No run taken, pardon the scoring glitch earlier.


Mithun to Vijay, FOUR, Chennai are taking this away. Gayle will have a lot of work to do later. Slower ball, too full and too easy to spot. Vijay walks into position and gracefully caresses it over extra cover for four more.


Mithun to Vijay, 1 run, shortens the length at normal pace, Vijay stays back and taps it towardsmid-off for one more.


Mithun to Hussey, 1 run, full ball to finish the over, Hussey pushes into extra-cover without a fuss for one more.

Chennai Super Kings 94/0   A Mithun 2-0-22-0
