18 April 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Morkel to Raina, FOUR, and wow, just wow! It is full, mind you, its the first ball he's facing tonight and Raina's has driven it like how mist graceful left-handers would, races away!


Morkel to Raina, no run, shorter in length and almost a run-out! Raina plays it from the back foot and does not want a run, Hussey does and is almost halfway down, direct hit was needed from Nadeem, but doesn't hit


Morkel to Raina, no run, tucked away to the leg side but straight to the fielder

Chennai Super Kings 34/1   SK Raina 4* (3b 1x4)

Pathan to Raina, no run, short of length, he's quickly on the back foot and defends it in front of him, over to the off side


Pathan to Raina, no run, another one that's in that good length area and Raina wants to defend again, is able to play it away to the cover fielder


Pathan to Raina, no run, slightly fuller from Raina, he was looking to unleash his drive but managed to restrain himself, again into the covers


Pathan to Raina, no run, on a good length and the batsman is again on his back foot, tapped away to the off side, good end to the over

Chennai Super Kings 39/1   SK Raina 4* (7b 1x4)

Sehwag to Raina, 1 run, very short from Sehwag and easily nudged away to deep square-leg for a single


Sehwag to Raina, 1 run, room to cut it and Raina does it easily, gets it to the sweeper region


Sehwag to Raina, FOUR, and a four this time, it was a mere chip over the bowler's head and it's gone all the way to the fence, good shot to end what was turning out to be a decent over from Sehwag

Chennai Super Kings 48/1   SK Raina 10* (10b 2x4)

Agarkar to Raina, no run, and some more movement back into the batsman, interestingly it's from length and not very full, defended on the back foot


Agarkar to Raina, no run, and fuller this time, Raina's quick to get on to his front foot and defends it back to the bowler, Agarkar dives to his left to field


Agarkar to Raina, no run, fuller from Agarkar and Raina gets his bat and pad out and taps into the covers


Agarkar to Raina, no run, whoa, almost gets the leg-stump, he was looking to paddle Agarkar away by moving slightly towards the off stump, played that shot too early I thought


Agarkar to Raina, no run, and now a swish outside the off stump, nowhere close to the ball, beats the inside edge

Chennai Super Kings 50/1   SK Raina 10* (15b 2x4)

Nadeem to Raina, no run, shorter from the bowler, on the back foot and pushed to the mid-on region


Nadeem to Raina, 2 runs, swept away to fine-leg region for a couple of runs, Pathan does well to slide around the restrict it to couple


Nadeem to Raina, 1 run, flatter and this is straighter, does not turn back into the batsman who is down the track and pushes it to long-on


Nadeem to Raina, no run, he stopped in his run-up there, Raina was almost waiting on his back foot and in the end manages to get his bat down in time

Chennai Super Kings 56/1   SK Raina 13* (19b 2x4)

Agarkar to Raina, 1 leg bye, swing back into the batsman to tuck him a little, Raina was looking to swing his bat away but gets it on his pads and it rolls over to the leg side


Agarkar to Raina, 1 run, short of length this and allows Raina to pull it away to the deep square-leg region for a single

Chennai Super Kings 60/1   SK Raina 14* (21b 2x4)

Yadav to Raina, no run, opens his stance up a little and pushed to the off side for no run


Yadav to Raina, FOUR, up and over and for a four! Raina finally gets some width to free his arms, does exactly that and gets it over extra cover for a boundary, was a slower one


Yadav to Raina, FOUR, and again and this is even better, almost goes for a six, it's fuller and he smashes it and does it with a lot of grace too


Yadav to Raina, no run, and now he pitches it short, Raina wants to pull it away but straight to square-leg who is inside the circle


Yadav to Raina, 1 leg bye, slower one but on the middle stump, beats the bat and hits the pads, was going down the leg side, bit of an appeal there but not-out

Chennai Super Kings 69/1   SK Raina 22* (26b 4x4)

Agarkar to Raina, 1 run, slower bouncer, takes the pace off it and Raina was looking to pull it away, but not off the middle of the bat to fine-leg


Agarkar to Raina, 1 run, powerful punch off the back foot from Raina, but straight to long-on for a single

Chennai Super Kings 78/1   SK Raina 24* (28b 4x4)

Pathan to Raina, FOUR, pulled away to the fence, it was shorter in length and Raina goes for that shot and to backward square-leg for a four


Pathan to Raina, no run, a very slow, slower ball, 120 km/hr and Raina was trying to cut it away, gets a bit of under edge to the keeper


Pathan to Raina, 2 runs, tucked away to the leg side and they complete a single, he comes back for the second and the throw is a little far from the keeper, who whips the bails but by then he's in, third ump into action and he's got an easy decision to make


Pathan to Raina, OUT, edged and gone! Raina's walking to a caught behind! It was outside the off and Raina was looking to clear his foot and smack it over the off side, gets only an outside edge and taken by the keeper

SK Raina c †Jadhav b Pathan 30 (38m 32b 5x4 0x6) SR: 93.75

Chennai Super Kings 90/2   SK Raina 30 (32b 5x4)
