Indian Premier League, 37th match: Chennai Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab at Chennai, Apr 28, 2012
Kings XI Punjab won by 7 runs
28 April 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)

Ashwin to Mandeep Singh, OUT, Has Marsh been run out while backing up at the bowler's end? He has! Mandeep drove the ball hard and straight, back at Ashwin. The bowler bent down but didn't even get a proper hand on it, instead the ball deflected off his boot and hit the stumps. Marsh was out of his crease and lunged back to try and regain his ground. He was just short. Some might say that's unlucky, but if you back up too far, you're taking the risk. Ok, Ashwin might have got fingertips on it, but the deflection that caused it to hit the stumps was off the boot

SE Marsh run out 32 (33m 22b 4x4 1x6) SR: 145.45

Kings XI Punjab 68/1   Mandeep Singh 32* (27b 4x4 1x6)   R Ashwin 2.1-0-13-0

Bravo to Azhar Mahmood, OUT, lbw! Bravo pitched the ball on a good length just outside off and nipped it back into the right-hander, Mahmood tried to steer towards third man and opened the face to do so, he played down the wrong line though and was struck plumb in front

Azhar Mahmood lbw b Bravo 18 (17m 12b 0x4 2x6) SR: 150.00

Kings XI Punjab 97/2   Mandeep Singh 42* (38b 4x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 2-0-10-1

Morkel to Miller, OUT, caught behind! That's a strange one. Morkel bowled a slower short ball, Miller got into position to pull initially and then had to wait for the ball to reach him, he then decided to chip it over the keeper instead. All he managed was to edge it straight to Dhoni

DA Miller c †Dhoni b Morkel 19 (20m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 126.66

Kings XI Punjab 127/3   Mandeep Singh 53* (46b 5x4 1x6)   JA Morkel 2.5-0-25-1

Bravo to Mandeep Singh, OUT, Mandeep cleared his front foot and tried to smash the ball over the straight boundary, he mis-timed it and the ball began its descent about mid-way to the long-off boundary, Raina came running in from the deep and caught it

Mandeep Singh c Raina b Bravo 56 (79m 50b 5x4 1x6) SR: 112.00

Kings XI Punjab 133/4   DJ Hussey 3* (2b)   DJ Bravo 2.5-0-14-2

Morkel to Hussey, OUT, pulled hard but straight to Jakati at midwicket! That is an important strike for Chennai, the last of the specialist batsmen has been dismissed with plenty of overs remaining. The ball from Morkel was short and Hussey pulled with power off the front foot, he just did not place it well

DJ Hussey c Jakati b Morkel 7 (9m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 175.00

Kings XI Punjab 138/5   Bipul Sharma 1* (1b)   JA Morkel 3.2-0-28-2

Morkel to Chawla, OUT, tremendous catch! Bravo sprinted forward and to his right from long-off to get under a mis-hit from Chawla, he then had to leap in the air as the ball descended, arching his body and catching the ball in mid air, holding it safely as his body slammed into the ground

PP Chawla c Bravo b Morkel 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kings XI Punjab 138/6   Bipul Sharma 1* (1b)   JA Morkel 3.4-0-28-3

Bravo to Saini, OUT, Sharma's been run out! Saini backed away towards leg, Bravo followed him with a full and slower ball, Saini was beaten but the batsmen decided to try and steal a bye to Dhoni, who hit the stumps direct with his under-arm throw

Bipul Sharma run out 7 (10m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 140.00

Kings XI Punjab 148/7   N Saini 4* (2b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 3.4-0-27-2

Kulasekara to Saini, OUT, caught and bowled! It was a slower delivery - 106 kph - on a good length and straight line. Saini slogged, aiming for deep midwicket, he ended up slicing the ball high in the air towards short midwicket. Kulasekara called for the catch and took it

N Saini c & b Kulasekara 6 (10m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Kings XI Punjab 154/8   P Kumar 4* (5b)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.5-0-27-1
