Narine to Hussey, no run, on the off stump, turning away slightly, pushed off the back foot to the covers


Narine to Hussey, 1 run, on his pads, flicked away to short fine-leg for a single, the fielder was very fine but right on the circle.


Narine to Vijay, no run, outside the off stump, on the front foot, wants to drive it, spins into the batsman and misses the inside edge


Narine to Vijay, 2 runs, on the front foot, pushes it to the mid-wicket region, they take a single and are able to just about come back for the second, had that hit direct at the striker's end, could just have been close


Narine to Vijay, no run, shorter from Narine, goes on to his back foot, wants to cut it away, but goes to the covers fielder


Narine to Vijay, 1 run, pitched fuller on his pads, takes the full toss and drives to leg side for a single

Chennai Super Kings 35/0   SP Narine 1-0-4-0

Narine to Raina, 1 run, punched down the ground


Narine to Hussey, 1 run, shortish, pulled to deep midwicket


Narine to Raina, FOUR, offbreak spinning across Raina, but he has timed it so well past short third man from the crease, it has teased the fielder all the way to the rope


Narine to Raina, 1 run, whips a tossed up ball on leg through midwicket


Narine to Hussey, 1 run, another offbreak, tossed up and spinning away from middle, he waits on it and steers to short third


Narine to Raina, no run, too short, that should have gone, suddenly he does not seem as big a threat, Raina does not connect with the pull though

Chennai Super Kings 136/1   SP Narine 2-0-12-0

Narine to Raina, 1 run, opens up outside leg, the offbreak spins away slightly on middle, he whips it down to long on


Narine to Hussey, 1 run, full toss now, he sweeps awkwardly behind square


Narine to Raina, SIX, and that is the final confirmation of CSK's dominance today, a Narine tossed up ball has been slaughtered miles and miles over deep midwicket, the Raina slog-sweep, working smoothly, fifty up for him as well


Narine to Raina, 2 runs, flatter now instantly, and swept wide of deep square


Narine to Raina, 2 runs, he is making Hussey run harder, comes down the track, mishits the offbreak over cover, Hussey has just made it as the throw comes to the bowler


Narine to Raina, 2 runs, even luck deserting KKR now, after the momentum did long ago, Raina exposes all the stumps and has a go at a Narine offbreak, inside edge eludes leg stump, by an inch

Chennai Super Kings 160/1   SP Narine 3-0-26-0

Narine to Dhoni, no run, carrom ball, Dhoni has a go at it from the crease, under edge, could have rolled onto the stumps, didn;t


Narine to Dhoni, 1 run, swings at a length ball from the crease, turns in a bit, in the air down to short third


Narine to Raina, 1 run, slog-sweep that stayed in the air for an age, wonder why there was no one beneath it when it came down just inside the deep midwicket rope, but Iqbal has done quite well to slap the ball back in on the bounce into the field, there was another man backing up


Narine to Dhoni, 1 run


Narine to Raina, SIX, take that, no one is stopping CSK today, not even Narine, Raina seemed to pick the offbreak up as he charged out and lofted it cleanly down the ground


Narine to Raina, 2 runs, swiped through midwicket for a couple

Chennai Super Kings 182/2   SP Narine 4-0-37-0
