View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† b Ashwin 38 17 4 3 223.52
4.4 bowled'im, Gilchrist has been sent back, slower through the air and gave it some flight, Gilchrist stepped out of his crease to crack it through the leg side, it landed on leg to spin away and beat the swing of the bat to crash into middle and off 55/1
View dismissal VVS Laxman run out (Raina/†Dhoni) 12 11 2 0 109.09
4.5 Ashwin to Gibbs, Do we have a run out? Gibbs nudges it into the leg side in front of square leg, Raina charges forward and flicks an accurate throw to the keeper, there is hesitation out in the middle and Laxman is late to react to the single and is found short as Dhoni collects and whips out the bails 55/2
View dismissal HH Gibbs run out (Morkel) 45 36 5 1 125.00
17.2 Morkel to Symonds, run-out, excellent fielding by Morkel off his own bowling, yorker length outside off, digs it out back to the bowler who collects with his outstretched left hand, turns around and aims accurately at the stumps at the non-striker's end to find Gibbs well short. Some problem with the light again, though the umpires in the middle have been given the word that Gibbs is gone. 150/3
View dismissal A Symonds run out (Hayden) 50 43 3 3 116.27
18.1 Balaji to Sharma, appeal for a run-out, it's played just in front of Hayden at extra cover, he picks it up and hurls an accurate throw at the non-striker's end after Symonds, halfway through the pitch, is sent back, replays indicate he is just inches short of the crease, timely wicket for Chennai, just when a late surge had been initiated 160/4

View dismissal M Vijay b Vaas 3 6 0 0 50.00
2.1 bowled'im! Some movement inward but that was always heading just one way, M Vijay gave him the charge and tried to smash him over midwicket, swung hard, got an inside edge and the leg stump was knocked off 12/1
View dismissal ML Hayden c Singh b Vaas 17 11 0 2 154.54
4.1 gone! Hayden's dismissal is quite similar to Misbah's in the World Twenty20 final in 2007, Vaas bowled it fullish on the off, Hayden bent low, went across and tried to scoop it over short fine but found more elevation than he would have desired, RP, waiting patiently, moved a few steps to his right and held on to a well-judged catch. What a blow! 31/3
View dismissal SK Raina c †Gilchrist b Vaas 6 3 0 1 200.00
2.4 Vaas bites back! Another audacious attempt but Raina falters this time, it's short and wide, he makes room to cut it hard through point, gets a thick outside edge and Gilchrist reacts well, moving quickly to his left to snap a sharp one 18/2
View dismissal S Badrinath c Singh b Ojha 5 12 1 0 41.66
5.3 Badrinath has holed out, tossed up outside off and he saw the invitation, moved away and tried to loft him wide of long-off but couldn't, found the fielder who just had to take a few steps to his left. The pressure was building with all those dot balls, and Chennai's chase has been dealt another setback 32/4
View dismissal JM Kemp st †Gilchrist b Ojha 22 16 1 1 137.50
9.6 Ojha has his revenge, beautifully bowled, deceived the batsman in flight and altered his length to hold it back, it landed on the off stump as Kemp charged forward and tried to play it into the off side, and turned away to beat his reach while Gilchrist did the rest. Chennai are sinking, but Dhoni's still there 70/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Symonds 42 29 3 2 144.82
14.6 Symonds gets the decisive blow, appeared to hurry on to Dhoni, short of a good length on middle, Dhoni, playing from the crease, tried to whip that through midwicket, missed and was bowled 108/6
JA Morkel not out 42 26 1 3 161.53
View dismissal R Ashwin c Singh b Sharma 0 1 0 0 0.00
15.3 Ashwin goes first ball, he struck that well but RP, who's had a great day with catches, snaps another testing one, lofted inside out and he ran a few yards from long-off to stretch at just the right time and clasp it with both hands 115/7
View dismissal L Balaji c Anirudh Singh b Singh 15 10 1 1 150.00
17.5 the entertainment ends, bowls it full on the off, makes room and tries to clear extra cover but can't, mistimes it straight to Anirudh 136/8
View dismissal M Muralitharan lbw b Symonds 1 2 0 0 50.00
18.1 Symonds strikes again, Murali, normally a batsman with plenty of spunk, has one of his off days, swinging across the line to a straight one on middle, is struck on the pads and we know the result 137/9
