View dismissal MEK Hussey c Mithun b Syed Mohammad 63 45 3 3 140.00
14.5 this time, the overthrow works for Bangalore. If Dhoni's arrival to the crease at this point in the game can be termed a victory. Hussey looks to launch Syed's full fare with the spin over the leg side, and after a long time he mis-hits one. Gayle at long-on holds on. Bangalore have a wicket. Surprise surprise. Ends a record first wicket stand in all IPL games. 159/1
View dismissal M Vijay c Vettori b Aravind 95 52 4 6 182.69
18.1 tomorrow morning, Vijay will wake up and kick himself for giving away a century that was there for the taking. But for a man who has been barely able to stand on his feet for the last 30 minutes or so, 95 is not bad at all. That too in a final. Aravind keeps it full and outside off, Vijay looks to go big over the off side but toe-ends it to cover inside the circle. End of a stunningly sublime innings. 188/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Kohli b Aravind 22 13 0 2 169.23
18.2 wickets are like London buses for Bangalore. None come for hours on end, and suddenly two in quick succession. Dhoni gets a juicy full toss outside off and smashes it straight to long-on. 188/3
View dismissal SK Raina b Gayle 8 5 0 1 160.00
19.5 Bangalore were keeping their best for the last over. Raina goes now, another full ball from the Jamaican sneaks past the big mow over the leg side and disturbs the furniture. On a hat-trick. 199/5
View dismissal JA Morkel c Kohli b Gayle 2 4 0 0 50.00
19.4 and gone. Gayle has bowled a really top over here, and Morkel's inability to do anything with balls that is not in his zone comes to the fore. Full ball, he jumps out and carves straight to long off on the circle. 199/4

View dismissal MA Agarwal b Ashwin 10 5 2 0 200.00
2.3 the carom comes into play, and Mayank deals with it like someone who's never seen it before. Lands on middle, grips and breaks away past a tame attempt at the cut. The bat isn't in the way, but the off stump is. Ashwin has put Chennai completely in control here. 16/2
View dismissal CH Gayle c †Dhoni b Ashwin 0 3 0 0 0.00
0.4 it took Ashwin three balls. He was Chennai's weapon against Bangalore's weapon in the last game too. And he was once again. What a classic set-up. What lovely bowling. Take a bow, Ashwin. He's set him up with the last two offbreaks, and this time he focused on getting one to skid in. He went round arm and slung it in, Gayle spotted the change in pace and trajectory late and by then he had committed himself into the cut. Thin outside edge, Dhoni does the rest. Have CSK got the one wicket they needed? Ashwin does his version of the aeroplane. What a comeback after being smashed on the head in the last game. 1/1
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Raina 35 32 1 1 109.37
9.6 the future of Indian batting falls to the future of Indian batting. This is the Indian Premier League after all. Raina slips a sharp offbreak past Kohli's attempted turn to the leg side, and catches him plumb in front. That one straightened in enough after landing on leg. Chennai Super Kings have one hand on the glittering trophy. 69/5
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Jakati 18 12 3 0 150.00
6.3 very strange end to AB's innings, and he isn't happy. Not sure why, he is dead plumb. He was hustling this way and that in the crease before the ball came. He first went away to the leg side, then started coming back towards middle, and Jakati landed it short of a length on off. AB was late on the pull after all the fancy footwork, and missed. Hit in front of off, hitting off and middle three-fourths of the way up. 48/3
View dismissal LA Pomersbach c & b Jakati 2 3 0 0 66.66
8.3 Bangalore are losing gas too fast here. Jakati nails another one, he's taken some memorable return catches this IPL, and this was one of the easier ones. Full ball on the pads, it was a chinaman out of no where! Luke leans across and looks to whip but he seemed to get a hint of leading edge as he played to back to the left of Jakati who jumped across easily to hold it. 62/4
SS Tiwary not out 42 34 1 3 123.52
View dismissal DL Vettori* c & b Ashwin 0 1 0 0 0.00
10.2 this final has lost more fizz than yesterday's beer can that was accidentally left open. Vettori goes for a blob, a tame leading edge back to Ashwin as he looks to work an offbreak to the leg side. Vettori looks sheepish and gutted at the same time. 70/6
View dismissal A Mithun c Bollinger b Bravo 11 8 2 0 137.50
12.6 Mithun swats a short ball straight to Bollinger at long-on. The fat lady's throat is clear, and the auto-rickshaw meters are being reset. 92/7
View dismissal Z Khan c Hussey b Bollinger 21 21 2 0 100.00
18.4 finally someone holds on, it is Mr. Cricket sweeping in the deep cover region. Short ball outside off, he goes for the cut and carves it into Hussey's lap. Start the autorickshaw! 130/8
