Indian Premier League - 5th match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings won by 92 runs

10.1

Pietersen to Patel, OUT, Will he ever? Strategy time-out has worked for Bangalore. KP bowls full and straight, and Parthiv slog-sweeps all over it, and Uthappa collects the off stumps

10.2

Pietersen to Raina, OUT, is this the charm of KP or what? Hayden is gone, run-out. Raina wants to get off the mark, drops it towards point, and charges off. Hayden responds, but there never was a run in there, Dravid rushes in, swoops, and throws in a single fluid motion, and hits the off stump, beating Hayden's dive

ML Hayden run out 65 (43m 35b 9x4 2x6) SR: 185.71
