Indian Premier League - 2nd qualifying final

25 May 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Negi to Dhoni, 1 run, stays in his crease and drives the ball through cover

Chennai Super Kings 138/2   MS Dhoni 1* (1b)

Gupta to Dhoni, SIX, that's just too short, I'm surprised Dhoni did not launch it into the stands, his pull just cleared the midwicket boundary


Gupta to Dhoni, SIX, the helicopter's arrived early today! Dhoni steps out and whips hard with his wrists, blazing the ball over the leaping Warner at long-on. Had it been Morkel doing the leaping, he might have reached it


Gupta to Dhoni, 1 run, hit hard towards long on for a single


Gupta to Dhoni, 1 run, it's falling apart for Daredevils, Warner's dropped a catch. Dhoni whipped out the helicopter again, but this time the elevation wasn't high enough. Warner ran to his right from long-on, got to the catch in time, but dropped it. He was trying to catch it on the slide, so the ball went straight through his hands

Chennai Super Kings 162/2   MS Dhoni 15* (5b 2x6)

Russell to Dhoni, 1 run, short of a length and straight, pulled off the back foot to midwicket


Russell to Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni gets hurried by a short of a length ball and he too fails to connect with the whip through square leg. Russell conceded only 5 that over

Chennai Super Kings 167/2   MS Dhoni 17* (7b 2x6)

Aaron to Dhoni, 2 runs, length ball and Dhoni pulls it towards cow corner, Warner sprints a long way to his right from long-on and dives to make the save


Aaron to Dhoni, FOUR, too short and Dhoni has blitzed it, swivelling and pulling with oodles of power to the backward square leg boundary


Aaron to Dhoni, OUT, caught at deep midwicket! Negi comes running in from the boundary and bends to catch the ball at shin-height while on the move. Good effort. Dhoni had pulled the length ball but didn't time it well enough

MS Dhoni c Negi b Aaron 23 (10b 1x4 2x6) SR: 230.00

Chennai Super Kings 173/3   MS Dhoni 23 (10b 1x4 2x6)
