Mithun to Hussey,
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 Vijay,
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,
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.
Syed Mohammad to Hussey,
another full toss, Syed thinks he is safe if he keeps it well wide of off stump. He needs to think again. Hussey leans across and carves it through extra cover and Tiwary at long off has no chance.
Khan to Vijay,
Bangalore have still not woken up. Short of a length outside off stump, Vijay moves into position and steers with a smartly opened face, perfectly in between point and short third. The former reacts slowly, and the latter almost doesn't react. Four more.
Vettori to Vijay,
inside out, easy as you like. Vijay advances down the track and opens up the off side, and then puts the wrists into work to scatter Vettori through cover point.
Vettori to Hussey,
Mr Cricket has fifty. And he brings it up with such a lovely reverse sweep, you want to gift it to the woman of your dreams. Full from Vettori on off stump, Hussey swaps the grip even as he lunges out, cuts out all the risk and slaps it through third man. Easy as.
