21 May 2013 - night match (20-over match)

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   MM Patel 1-0-12-0

Patel to Hussey, 1 run, shorter in length and opens the face of the bat yet again, bit of an under-edge this time that runs through to short third-man for a single


Patel to Raina, 1 run, on the middle stump and on length too, it's hit straight down to long-on for a single


Patel to Hussey, FOUR, short and fractionally wide, that's all Hussey needs to unleash the cut, gets it off the middle of the bat and very wide of both, the backward point and the third-man fielder


Patel to Hussey, no run, this is quite wide and short too, wanted to cut it hard but I think it came on quicker than Hussey thought it would, beaten, the keeper's up to the bat too


Patel to Hussey, 1 run, on his pads this time, flicked away to deep square-leg for a single


Patel to Raina, 1 run, shorter in length and easily pulled away by Raina to deep square-leg for a single, he was up on his toes for that one

Chennai Super Kings 63/1   MM Patel 2-0-20-0

Patel to Raina, FOUR, and wow, just wow, that was pitched right up to the bat and he's bisected the two backward point fielders, the players were quite close to each other and he gets the gap so well!


Patel to Raina, FOUR, full-toss now and tapped back over the non-striker's head for a four, it was a straight-as-you-like bat and the shot just flew off it


Patel to Raina, 1 run, fullish this time and driven to long-off for a single


Patel to Hussey, 1 run, was looking to give himself room, hit it over extra-cover but it's a tad quicker and gets an inside edge on to his pads, single taken


Patel to Raina, 1 run, fuller from the bowler yet again and Raina has tapped it through to long-off, again off the middle of the bat and cracked it well


Patel to Hussey, 1 run, this is outside the off stump and right up to the bat and drilled through to deep covers for a single

Chennai Super Kings 137/1   MM Patel 3-0-32-0
