  Kings XI Punjab innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RS Bopara c Balaji b Morkel 1 8 0 0 12.50
2.5 nicely taken by Balaji at third man! Bopara was itching to get one away, sashayed down the track and looked to go with an expansive swing to the full ball outside off, and he timed it quite well. Bala runs in a few paces, bends forward and takes it well. 18/1
View dismissal IK Pathan b Balaji 39 32 5 1 121.87
9.5 and he's cleaned him up this time! Great, persistent bowling from Bala who has kept it simple, short of a length and on a nagging line. Irfan knew he needed to up the ante and looked to slog-pull the ball on leg stump, but could only get a meek inside edge on to leg stump. 58/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† st †Patel b Muralitharan 15 16 2 0 93.75
8.2 he's done him here! Murali beats Sanga, by pulling it back just a fraction. Sanga thought it was in his territory, licked his lips and jumped out, but Murali was the man chuckling as his Sri Lanka captain fell for the bait. Parthiv Patel did the rest behind the stumps. 54/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Muralitharan 3 5 0 0 60.00
10.6 gotcha! Murali is the king of Sri Lanka as far as today is concerned, he's vanquished Sanga and now he's sent back Mahela! Turning offie on middle, from around the wickets, straightens as Mahela gets forward, but it beats his attempt to work it across the line and thuds on the pads. Umpires should give these out more consistently for the good of the game. 64/4
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c sub (GJ Bailey) b Morkel 43 28 4 2 153.57
18.6 and the big fish has been hooked! Yuvraj has been starved of the strike by some smart bowling and fielding, and he tries to muscle this one over long on, mindful of the building pressure. It's well hit, but not well enough and balloons to George Bailey who takes it easily at long on 124/7
View dismissal M Kaif c Morkel b Muralitharan 14 16 0 0 87.50
16.2 very pretty shot from Kaif, but as he's done a few times in the past, he hits it straight down the fielder's throat! Full on leg stump, he comes down the track and picks it up well, but gets the placement all wrong, sends it straight to deep midwicket 109/5
View dismissal MS Bisla run out (Hayden/Morkel) 7 9 1 0 77.77
18.5 from Morkel, Bisla's gone by a mile! Hits the full toss, off the backfoot, straight to Hayden at mid on and takes off. Hayden picks up and throws accurately to Morkel who breaks the stumps. Bisla is well out of his crease. 124/6
PP Chawla not out 8 4 2 0 200.00
View dismissal J Theron run out (Raina) 0 1 0 0 0.00
19.1 from Balaji, Chennai's fielding is spot on again! Raina's the man at cover, Theron drives straight to him and takes off. Raina intercepts, takes good aim at the one stump he can see and fells it. 125/8

View dismissal PA Patel st †Sangakkara b Chawla 57 58 4 2 98.27
17.2 Chawla has his number this time! Draws him out of the track, with a leggie tossed up wide of the batsman, Patel misses the attempted drive and Sanga's got the bails off before you could say Parthiv. Huge wicket. Chennai are making rough weather of this chase. 121/5
View dismissal ML Hayden b Powar 33 24 4 2 137.50
8.4 nifty bit of bowling from Powar! Foxes him with some classical offspin here. Hayden's down the track again, but announces his intentions a moment too soon, Powar sees him, pulls it back a little, defeats him in the flight and beats the attempted swipe to hit the stumps. Great work, big wicket. 65/1
View dismissal SK Raina* run out (Theron) 15 11 0 1 136.36
12.3 Theron to Patel, Theron's showed some really smart footwork here and Raina is run out!. Short of a length, and Patel looked to pull, got no timing and it bobbled down the pitch as they took off for a quick single. Theron ran down the pitch and kicked the ball with his right foot on to the stumps and Raina is caught inches short. 96/2
View dismissal M Vijay lbw b Theron 0 3 0 0 0.00
12.6 and he's got two for the over! Theron's persisted with that line through the over and Vijay has not come forward even once. This time, it catches him on the crease, and it may have been sliding down the leg, but not in umpire Harper's book. 97/3
View dismissal S Badrinath c †Sangakkara b Yuvraj Singh 2 2 0 0 100.00
13.6 gotcha! Chennai are crumbling and the crowd is in a lull now. Yuvraj's struck another blow, short and cramping Badri for room, he went for the cut and got a faint edge. Sanga put it down the first time, but regained in time before it touched the turf. Punjab have a sniff here. 104/4
JA Morkel not out 12 12 1 0 100.00
View dismissal MS Gony b Theron 2 6 0 0 33.33
18.4 stumps everywhere! Theron has bowled with zest today and this was probably his best. Fast, length ball targetting middle, challenging Gony to try and find the fence. Gony obliged, and missed the ball, and CLATTER! Chennai are choking big time, it's all down to Morkel. 127/6
View dismissal R Ashwin c Kaif b Pathan 2 5 0 0 40.00
19.6 Ashwin's gone! Fasten your seatbelts folks, we have a super over coming up! Pressure has taken its toll! Pathan keeps it slow and steady, on a length, Ashwin swings it away ram-rod straight to mid off, where Kaif takes the dolly. Punjab are ecstatic! 136/7
