Steyn to Patel, 2 runs, full and swing, Parthiv throws his arms at it, inside-edges it, and picks two to square leg


Steyn to Patel, no run, just short of length, on target, and Parthiv doesn't have any room to get it off the square


Steyn to Patel, 1 run, full this time, Parthiv throws his arms again, and limply lobs it over mid-off


Steyn to Hayden, 1 wide, full and wide, and angling away, called wide, and rightfully so


Steyn to Hayden, no run, another wide delivery, very close to being called a wide, Hayden lets it go


Steyn to Hayden, 2 runs, full again, a touch slower at 135k, Hayden is early into the shot, but turns his wrists and goes leg side, and clears the inner ring with ease


Steyn to Hayden, no run, there goes the famous Hayden walk, Steyn cuts down the pace, and beats Hayden's swipe with a 124k delivery

Steyn to Patel, no run, slower ball again, 123k, on the stumps, Parthiv commits, but manages to control the shot

Steyn to Patel, no run, beaten outside off again, fast and moving away


Steyn to Patel, 1 run, another slower ball, on the stumps, but Parthiv archs back a little, and guides it to thirdman

Steyn to Flintoff, no run, full, just outside off, fast and Fred backs away and misses


Steyn to Flintoff, FOUR, Flintoff makes room again, same delivery, fast and just outside off, and Flintoff gets a thick outside edge to thirdman boundary


Steyn to Flintoff, 1 run, PK had come straighter at thirdman, and good he did that, another outside edge from Flintoff, and goes straight towards thirdman


Steyn to Raina, 1 run, slower ball, good bluff, and Raina opens the face towards point, and gets a single


Steyn to Flintoff, 1 run, lovely stop by KP, Flintoff backs away, cuts crisply, the ball is bouncing over point, but KP times his jump to perfection, but in over enthusiasm, gives away an overthrow


Steyn to Raina, no run, slower, cutting away from Raina, who tries to run it down, but misses

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

Steyn to Flintoff, SIX, what a shot from Flintoff, it's fast, on the stumps, and Fred shuffles towards off, and flicks it flat over square-leg boundary


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


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?


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


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


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


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
