MEK Hussey not out 83 56 11 1 148.21
View dismissal M Vijay c Khan b Ninan 31 21 3 2 147.61
6.3 Brave, brave bowling. He flights it again, inviting Vijay to go for another six. Vijay obliges, looking for a replay of the previous shot, nearly gets it right. It's a matter of inches here, not close enough to the pitch of the ball, and hence gets more height on it than distance. Zaheer at long-off makes no mistake 51/1
View dismissal SK Raina c Agarwal b Ninan 29 16 3 1 181.25
10.5 too much greed! Looks for another big shot, but clearly is not close enough the pitch of the ball, and thus ends up looking to drag it onto the on side. The shot just hands in the air, and slices off towards extra cover, where Agarwal, one of the few Bangaloreans in the team, completes the catch 96/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †de Villiers b Khan 22 16 1 1 137.50
16.3 Zak gets his own back. Goes round the wicket, angles it in, gets it to hold its line the slightest bit, thus getting the slight outside edge from Dhoni, who walks. rarely does Zaheer not have the final word 147/3
View dismissal JA Morkel c Agarwal b van der Wath 9 8 1 0 112.50
19.1 However, Bangalore hold onto one! Morkel again plays a poor shot in what has been an unremarkable innings, Agarwal runs from long-on to his right to complete the catch. Morkel struggled to time throughout his effort. Vettori applauds the effort. Is he being sarcastic? I would suppose not 176/4
View dismissal S Badrinath c Ninan b van der Wath 5 3 1 0 166.66
19.6 this is short, Badri gives it an almighty heave but ends up slicing it to extra cover, where another catch has been taken, which is surprising going by Bangalore's fielding effort in the day 183/5

View dismissal MA Agarwal c Morkel b Ashwin 7 13 1 0 53.84
4.5 Ashwin strikes in his first over. This was a-coming. Agarwal hasn't really felt in, and two dot balls in a row were asking for an adventurous shot. Agarwal tried to go over mid-off, never quite got close to the pitch of the ball, and ended up skying it. Morkel takes a decent catch running back 31/3
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Anirudha b Morkel 0 1 0 0 0.00
0.2 out first ball! Soft dismissal really. Full, on the pads, four runs... Not quite, bat face turn a split second too early, and the leading edge goes straight to midwicket 1/1
View dismissal AUK Pathan b Southee 14 5 2 1 280.00
1.2 bowled him! Pathan had done so well hitting down the ground so far, but inexplicably, as if under pressure to keep up with modern times, he tries the scoop over the keeper's head, thus moving too far across the stumps, and leaving the stumps prone. top of middle 17/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Anirudha b Jakati 35 28 4 1 125.00
10.5 Smart bowling. Jakati has been targetted by Kohli, but he has gone over the wicket and stifled Kohli. This time he sees the batsman charge at him, and bowls full and outside leg, Kohli gets a top edge as he looks to go over the on side, and Aniruddha runs to his right from long-on to complete the catch 73/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Anirudha b Morkel 65 44 5 2 147.72
18.2 never mind losing the strike, he has lost his wicket. Game, set, match. It was a good inside-out shot, but he just placed it straight down the throat of sweeper-cover. Chennai have two points in the bag 145/7
View dismissal SS Tiwary c †Dhoni b Randiv 14 13 0 0 107.69
14.6 and he seems to have stolen one here! Extra bouncer from Randiv again, pitches just outside leg, beats the flick, and seems to have lobbed off the thigh pad to Dhoni. Umpire Dharmasena, though, agrees with the fielders. Of course I will stand corrected if the replays show otherwise 112/5
View dismissal CA Pujara c Vijay b Randiv 2 4 0 0 50.00
16.4 Pujara plays the pressure shot, jumping out of the crease, toe-ending towards the 30-yard circle, Vijay runs flat out from long-on and makes the catch. He is pumped, Chennai are pumped 127/6
