Indian Premier League - Elimination final
Chennai Super Kings won by 38 runs
23 May 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Harbhajan Singh to Badrinath, SIX, huge hit over deep midwicket, Badri clears his front leg and swings freely, sending the ball into the stands. He's taking charge of this innings

Chennai Super Kings 69/2   S Badrinath 43* (31b 6x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 2.3-1-9-0

Harbhajan Singh to Hussey, SIX, intense stuff from Super Kings! Hussey charges, gets to the pitch of the ball and lofts it towards long-off, where Pollard leaps at full stretch but watches the ball just go over him

Chennai Super Kings 76/2   MEK Hussey 29* (27b 4x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 2.5-1-16-0

Franklin to Dhoni, SIX, that's out of here! A length ball which Dhoni got under and heaved at with might towards long-on. That's gone over the roof of the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Tremendous. The biggest of the tournament? 112 metres, so it was.

Chennai Super Kings 114/4   MS Dhoni 12* (5b 1x4 1x6)   JEC Franklin 1-0-12-1

Malinga to Dhoni, SIX, there's the helicopter shot, and the ball has disappeared flat over the midwicket boundary. Dhoni goes back to change a yorker to a full length ball and flicks it with a lot of bottom hand. Now we've seen all of Dhoni's repertoire tonight

Chennai Super Kings 163/5   MS Dhoni 45* (16b 6x4 2x6)   SL Malinga 3.4-0-36-0

Kulkarni to Bravo, SIX, short ball, and it's gone the distance. Bravo had plenty of time to wind up and pull off the front foot with tremendous force, sending the ball 85 metres over midwicket

Chennai Super Kings 178/5   DJ Bravo 26* (12b 3x4 1x6)   DS Kulkarni 3.3-0-37-3

Kulkarni to Bravo, SIX, what was that?! Bravo had moved towards leg but the ball was wide outside off, on a length. Bravo lunged at it, freeing his arms and throwing his bat with all he had. He was almost off the ground as he made contact with the ball, or one leg was. He ended up carving it flat over the point boundary. Jaw-dropping stuff.

Chennai Super Kings 184/5   DJ Bravo 32* (13b 3x4 2x6)   DS Kulkarni 3.4-0-43-3
