4 May 2008 - night match (20-over match)

Sohail Tanvir to Patel, OUT, and he strikes first ball! With some swing! Tanvir pitches just outside off stump and brings the ball in exaggeratedly to Patel, who sticks his front foot forward and plays across the line, missing the line, and the umpire raises the finger of fate, looked fairly out to me

PA Patel lbw b Sohail Tanvir 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Chennai Super Kings 0/1   SP Fleming 0* (0b)   Sohail Tanvir 0.1-0-0-1

Sohail Tanvir to Fleming, OUT, and he's gone as well! Fantastic start! Tanvir takes out Fleming for a duck as well, pitching outside off stump and striking Fleming marginally outside the line of off stump as he plants the foot out and shapes to play across the line, they all appeal and the umpire raises his finger once more, though this one looked a bit iffy as Fleming had a good stride forward

SP Fleming lbw b Sohail Tanvir 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Chennai Super Kings 1/2   S Vidyut 1* (2b)   Sohail Tanvir 0.5-0-1-2

Sohail Tanvir to Vidyut, OUT, edged and taken! Third wicket for Tanvir, pitching outside the off stump for Vidyut to go flashing, and the thick outside edge is snapped up by Warne at second slip

S Vidyut c Warne b Sohail Tanvir 5 (10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Chennai Super Kings 11/3   SK Raina 1* (4b)   Sohail Tanvir 1.5-0-2-3

Watson to Badrinath, OUT, caught and bowled! The short ball does the trick, getting it to come on quick to Badrinath, who tries to pull but gets himself into a tangle, the weight not transfered at all, and Watson just stands there and accepts the top edge

S Badrinath c & b Watson 15 (14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

Chennai Super Kings 38/4   SK Raina 12* (8b 2x4)   SR Watson 1.5-0-13-1

Warne to Dhoni, OUT, and its no contest at all! Well bowled, Warne, flummoxing Dhoni with lovely flight and dip, turning it away from middle and leg to suck him forward into a faulty drive, the outside edge flies to Smith's right at slip but he chases it and snaps it up with those massive buckets

MS Dhoni c Smith b Warne 1 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Chennai Super Kings 44/5   SK Raina 17* (13b 2x4)   SK Warne 0.5-0-3-1

Patel to Raina, OUT, Raina goes slogging Munaf up over extra cover, the ball stays up in the air for a week but settles down into Tanvir's hands at long-off

Chennai Super Kings 88/6   JA Morkel 34* (25b 4x4 1x6)   MM Patel 3.2-0-13-1

Patel to Joginder Sharma, OUT, and he departs first ball, cramped as he tries to swipe a short ball over midwicket but ends up giving mid-on catching practice, and thats two in the over for Munaf

Joginder Sharma c Sohail Tanvir b Patel 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Chennai Super Kings 91/7   JA Morkel 37* (27b 4x4 1x6)   MM Patel 3.5-0-16-2

Chennai Super Kings 96/8   MS Gony 0* (2b)   Sohail Tanvir 2.1-0-2-4

Sohail Tanvir to Muralitharan, OUT, and there are the best figures of the IPL! Tanvir gets a five-wicket haul, keeping it straight to go past Murali's swipe and rattling the stumps

Chennai Super Kings 96/9   MS Gony 0* (2b)   Sohail Tanvir 2.4-0-2-5
