Johnson to Vijay, 1 run, fuller from Mitch and outside the off stump, Vijay's dabbed it to mid-off and springs away for a quick one

Chennai Super Kings 6/0   M Vijay 1* (1b)

Patel to Vijay, no run, very full from Munaf and slightly slower, 127.8km/hr, he has a dash at it but hits it back to the bowler


Patel to Vijay, FOUR, shortening of length but on the middle stump, it was quite gracefully flicked through square-leg for a four, nice


Patel to Vijay, FOUR, up and over and for a four, that was on a length yet again but he compensates by bowling outside the off stump, plays it through the line of the ball and hits it over extra-cover to get his second four


Patel to Vijay, no run, aah, another good-looking drive off a length ball, tapped straight to the fielder but the pitch looks to be a good one this, for the batsmen that is


Patel to Vijay, 2 runs, poor delivery again, this is further down on his pads and easily flicked away through mid-wicket for a couple of runs, there's a fielder at deep square-leg


Patel to Vijay, 2 runs, continues to bowl that same length and a bad line, on his pads too and easily tucked away to the right of that deep square-leg fielder, who has to run to it to stop it, couple of couple runs then to finish off the over

Chennai Super Kings 18/0   M Vijay 13* (7b 2x4)

Johnson to Vijay, no run, on a length and outside the off stump, bit of an angle away and pushed into the covers, followed by a loud shout of 'No!'


Johnson to Vijay, 3 runs, shot that one, it was fuller outside the off stump and a tad wide, he drives it through point, beats Pollard and they are able to come back for the third, it looked timed very well

Chennai Super Kings 26/0   M Vijay 16* (9b 2x4)

Harbhajan Singh to Vijay, no run, shorter in length from round the stumps, tapped to square-leg, there's a fielder there


Harbhajan Singh to Vijay, 1 run, too short again, enough for the batsman to go back and flick it away to mid-wicket for a single

Chennai Super Kings 29/0   M Vijay 17* (11b 2x4)

Malinga to Vijay, 1 run, well bowled and well played! it was on a length and there was a hint of swing away, not too pacy and he taps it well, down the ground and had it not been for a diving mid-off, was running away


Malinga to Vijay, no run, another yorker and Vijay goes back, gets his boot out and defends it back to the bowler

Chennai Super Kings 39/0   M Vijay 18* (13b 2x4)

Harbhajan Singh to Vijay, 1 run, tosses it up from round the stumps, tapped to mid-wicket for a single, Harbhajan runs across to field that one


Harbhajan Singh to Vijay, 1 run, on his pads and tucked around the corner for a single, was ambling it out there before realising it's gone straight to the fielder, rushes in and is safely home before the throw comes in

Chennai Super Kings 47/0   M Vijay 20* (15b 2x4)

Ojha to Vijay, 1 run, fuller from round the stumps, gives it a bit of air, driven to the fielder in the covers


Ojha to Vijay, 1 run, attempts a sweep from outside the off and slips while playing the stroke, recovers well to not only complete the stroke but also get away for a single


Ojha to Vijay, 1 run, fuller in length and driven down to long-off for a single, five singles off that one then

Chennai Super Kings 52/0   M Vijay 23* (18b 2x4)

Pollard to Vijay, no run, slower one outside the off stump, pushed it into the point region and straight to the fielder


Pollard to Vijay, OUT, swings, hits the bottom, and gone, caught! Vijay loves playing this free-swing shot, it was in his arc but not off the middle of the bat at all and it's gone straight to deep square-leg where it's taken, a wicket for Mumbai Indians

M Vijay c Smith b Pollard 23 (32m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 115.00

Chennai Super Kings 52/1   M Vijay 23 (20b 2x4)
