Kings XI Punjab v Chennai Super Kings

Kings XI Punjab won by 6 wickets (with 21 balls remaining)


Kumar to Vijay, OUT, gone, edged and caught behind! This was the second time he attempted that expansive stroke to a ball he thought was pitched up, this time he gets an outside edge and Gilchrist, on his return to the team, takes a simple catch

M Vijay c †Gilchrist b Kumar 10 (13m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Chennai Super Kings 17/1   MEK Hussey 5* (4b 1x4)   P Kumar 2-0-10-1


Kumar to Hussey, OUT, down the track, was getting frustrated by the constant prodding and poking, this time he does not miss the outside edge and Gilchrist does the rest behind the wickets!

MEK Hussey c †Gilchrist b Kumar 7 (19m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

Chennai Super Kings 20/2   SK Raina 1* (3b)   P Kumar 2.3-0-12-2


Azhar Mahmood to Raina, OUT, edged and caught behind! Pitched up and Raina was going for the drive, gets a thick outside edge and it it through to the keeper, easily caught this time and Chennai are in trouble here

SK Raina c †Gilchrist b Azhar Mahmood 17 (20m 13b 0x4 2x6) SR: 130.76

Chennai Super Kings 42/3   MS Dhoni 5* (9b 1x4)   Azhar Mahmood 1.4-0-15-1


Awana to Dhoni, OUT, edged and gone, caught at third-man! Dhoni was attempting this stroke throughout his innings, this time he finally got some bat on it and the outside edge carries to the third-man fielder easily, four down on a seaming wicket with not too many on the board.

MS Dhoni c Saini b Awana 6 (28m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Chennai Super Kings 46/4   DJ Bravo 3* (9b)   P Awana 1.2-0-3-1


Awana to Jadeja, OUT, goes for a hoick and that is a top-edge easily taken by the point fielder, was a short ball, went for the pull and does not get anywhere near the middle of the bat, simple catch.

RA Jadeja c Saini b Awana 13 (21m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 92.85

Chennai Super Kings 78/5   DJ Bravo 22* (27b 1x4 1x6)   P Awana 2.4-0-4-2


Azhar Mahmood to Morkel, OUT, short ball and that has been pulled away to the long-on fielder! He was trying to swat it over the boundary but PK comes around and takes the catch rather casually, just a yard from the fence

JA Morkel c Kumar b Azhar Mahmood 14 (17m 8b 1x4 1x6) SR: 175.00

Chennai Super Kings 112/6   DJ Bravo 42* (38b 2x4 3x6)   Azhar Mahmood 3.5-0-27-2


Harris to Bravo, OUT, outside edge and Gilly has taken his fourth catch! Slanting into the batsman, gave himself room, went for a heave, outside edge through to the wicket-keeper, ending a superb knock of 48 from Bravo

DJ Bravo c †Gilchrist b Harris 48 (59m 43b 2x4 3x6) SR: 111.62

Chennai Super Kings 119/7   S Anirudha 1* (1b)   RJ Harris 3.5-0-24-1
