Chennai Super Kings 158/3   DW Steyn 3-0-21-0

19.2

Steyn to Flintoff, 1 run, yorker this time, and just a single

19.3

Steyn to Morkel, FOUR, shot, what can you do with a yorker? move away, open the face, and dig it out to point boundary. Where were you so long Albie?

19.4

Steyn to Morkel, 1 run, slower bouncer, Albie, beaten by the pace, tries the scoop over keeper, but it's the toe end, Uthappa leaps high, gets a hand to it, and can;t collect the rebound behind him, while diving

19.5

Steyn to Flintoff, 1 wide, Flintoff shuffles again, Steyn follows him, beats Flintoff, it's close to a wide, and is called, unfortunate on Steyn, and he lets it be known to the umpire Jerling. Dirty looks there

19.5

Steyn to Flintoff, 1 run, full and straight again, and played towards long-off

19.6

Steyn to Morkel, OUT, don't rile a fast man. This is full and fast and ferocious, Albie makes room, but his bat comes down after the ball has hit the off stump, an angry Steyn looks at the umpire, and gestures perhaps meaning to say, "That wasn't wide, was it?" or perhaps "So what, the wide didn't cost me much, the extra ball got me a wicket."

JA Morkel b Steyn 5 (5m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

Chennai Super Kings 179/5   DW Steyn 4-0-35-1
