Johnson to Hussey, FOUR, poor ball to start things off here, it was a full-toss on his pads and it's caressed through mid-wicket for a four!

Chennai Super Kings 4/0   MEK Hussey 4* (1b 1x4)   MG Johnson 0.1-0-4-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 10/0   M Vijay 5* (3b 1x4)   MM Patel 0.2-0-4-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 14/0   M Vijay 9* (4b 2x4)   MM Patel 0.3-0-8-0

Johnson to Hussey, FOUR, and now it's cut hard for a four, Hussey loves playing the cut to one that's short and wide and gets it over his favourite point fielder, Pollard, no chance of getting any hand to that one for the fielder

Chennai Super Kings 22/0   MEK Hussey 9* (6b 2x4)   MG Johnson 1.1-0-10-0

Malinga to Hussey, FOUR, that's the second full-toss that Hussey's got and that's the second time he's got it away for a four, was on the off stump line and tapped through wide mid-off for a four

Chennai Super Kings 34/0   MEK Hussey 16* (15b 3x4)   SL Malinga 0.3-0-5-0

Malinga to Hussey, FOUR, slows the pace down but that's not slowing the pace of scoring down, he's read it well, waits for it and crunches it through the covers for a four

Chennai Super Kings 38/0   MEK Hussey 20* (16b 4x4)   SL Malinga 0.4-0-9-0

Harbhajan Singh to Hussey, FOUR, what a shot, it's been hit inside out and lands a few inches in front of the extra-cover fence, ran down the track there to get to the pitch of the ball too

Chennai Super Kings 45/0   MEK Hussey 25* (19b 5x4)   Harbhajan Singh 1.3-0-8-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 61/1   MEK Hussey 35* (28b 6x4)   MM Patel 1.3-0-18-0

Ojha to Hussey, FOUR, amazing stroke that, too many of those cramping him up and he unleashes the reverse sweep, the delivery this time was on the off stump and goes to the backward point fence for a four!

Chennai Super Kings 77/1   MEK Hussey 46* (36b 7x4)   PP Ojha 1.4-0-13-0

Malinga to Hussey, FOUR, what a hit, that's almost a tee on a golf course, it was fuller outside the off and Hussey goes through with the shot through wide long-off for a four

Chennai Super Kings 114/1   MEK Hussey 55* (43b 8x4)   SL Malinga 2-0-16-0

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!

Chennai Super Kings 129/1   SK Raina 41* (24b 1x4 3x6)   MM Patel 2.1-0-24-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 133/1   SK Raina 45* (25b 2x4 3x6)   MM Patel 2.2-0-28-0

Pollard to Raina, FOUR, shorter this time, outside the off and slower one too, throws his bat at it, slogged to deep square-leg for a four

Chennai Super Kings 148/1   SK Raina 57* (30b 3x4 4x6)   KA Pollard 2.4-0-25-1

Malinga to Raina, FOUR, but this time Raina does exactly what he wants to, it was a full-toss, outside the off stump and cracked over extra-cover for a four, easily beats the deep fielder

Chennai Super Kings 161/1   SK Raina 68* (36b 4x4 4x6)   SL Malinga 3-0-26-0

Johnson to Raina, FOUR, the man's in form and there's no doubting that, it was on a length on the middle stump and he just gets his bat-swing away so quickly, over mid-wicket for a four!

Chennai Super Kings 168/1   SK Raina 73* (38b 5x4 4x6)   MG Johnson 3.4-0-35-0

Johnson to Hussey, FOUR, pulled away for a four, he's been playing a second fiddle for some time to Raina but that was short enough for him to go for the pull, hit off the middle of the bat and goes through to the fine-leg fence

Chennai Super Kings 173/1   MEK Hussey 75* (55b 9x4 1x6)   MG Johnson 4-0-40-0

Malinga to Hussey, FOUR, he does it again, he's revising that chapter now, full-toss on the middle stump and Hussey's taken his foot down and scooped it over short fine-leg yet again, this time off the bounce to the fence for a four to end an amazing innings

Chennai Super Kings 192/1   MEK Hussey 86* (58b 10x4 2x6)   SL Malinga 4-0-45-0
