20 May 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Powar to Bailey, OUT, run out, flighted outside off, drew him out of the crease, drove it to Yuvraj at mid-off and set off for the single, dived full length forward to make it but the Punjab captain scored a direct hit at the non-striker's end, replays show he was short

GJ Bailey run out 15 (12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Chennai Super Kings 40/1   PA Patel 25* (17b 3x4 1x6)   RR Powar 0.5-0-5-0

Powar to Patel, OUT, trying to be a little too cheeky there, was too close to cut, a quicker one off the arm on middle, made room to chop it down, but instead dragged it onto the stumps, perhaps his only lapse, but costs him his wicket

PA Patel b Powar 32 (23b 4x4 1x6) SR: 139.13

Chennai Super Kings 54/2   SK Raina 7* (6b 1x4)   RR Powar 1.5-0-13-1

Sreesanth to Badrinath, OUT, a wicket at the stroke of the timeout, now how many times has that happened? Short on the off, goes for the pull in an attempt to clear midwicket, it gets onto him a little too quickly and he lobs a dolly to Irfan at mid-on

S Badrinath c Pathan b Sreesanth 4 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Chennai Super Kings 68/3   SK Raina 15* (13b 2x4)   S Sreesanth 2.3-0-16-1

Sreesanth to Dhoni, OUT, superb yorker!! Dhoni was totally done in by the inswinger, bowled in the high 140's, he was surprised by the pace, failed to bring his bat down in time and the offstump was pegged back. Punjab have the advantage now

MS Dhoni b Sreesanth 2 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Chennai Super Kings 70/4   SK Raina 15* (13b 2x4)   S Sreesanth 2.5-0-18-2

Mota to Raina, OUT, the pressure was on with the boundaries not coming, and Raina has snapped. Bowled short outside off, made room to cart that over point, got a thick outside edge straight to Lee at short third, Punjab are chipping away here, it was the offcutter

SK Raina c Lee b Mota 20 (21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 95.23

Chennai Super Kings 87/5   JDP Oram 11* (14b 1x4)   WA Mota 0.3-0-2-1

Chawla to Gony, OUT, went after one too many, gave it some air, but held it back, bowled it short on middle, Gony rocked back to go for the pull, missed as the ball spun away to clip his pad and crash into offstump

MS Gony b Chawla 7 (5b 0x4 1x6) SR: 140.00

Chennai Super Kings 96/6   JDP Oram 13* (16b 1x4)   PP Chawla 1.4-0-13-1

Pathan to Oram, OUT, Oram goes! Length ball and he was tempted, took his left foot out to smack that over the bowler's head, ended up slicing it really high and Irfan waited ages for it to come down before snapping it in his palms over his head

JDP Oram c & b Pathan 17 (21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.95

Chennai Super Kings 105/7   R Ashwin 4* (13b)   IK Pathan 2.4-0-25-1

Pathan to Ashwin, OUT, he's gone now, good length outside off, makes room to clear extra cover but mistimes it completely, Pomersbach runs back a couple of steps to take a dolly

R Ashwin c Pomersbach b Pathan 8 (15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

Chennai Super Kings 109/8   T Thushara 0* (0b)   IK Pathan 3-0-29-2

Pathan to Thushara, 1 run, OUT, run out, aiming for the yorker, landed full on the off, tried to drag it over midwicket, mistimed it wide of deep square leg, an accurate throw at the striker's end and Sangakkara clipped the bails to find Thushara just short, another one down

T Thushara run out 1 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Chennai Super Kings 114/9   L Balaji 2* (5b)   IK Pathan 3.4-0-31-2
