Indian Premier League, 5th match: Royal Challengers Bangalore v Chennai Super Kings at Port Elizabeth, Apr 20, 2009
Chennai Super Kings won by 92 runs
Played at St George's Park, Port Elizabeth (neutral venue)
20 April 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

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

PA Patel b Pietersen 30 (41m 26b 2x4 1x6) SR: 115.38

Chennai Super Kings 106/1   ML Hayden 65* (35b 9x4 2x6)   KP Pietersen 0.1-0-0-1

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

Chennai Super Kings 106/2   SK Raina 0* (1b)   KP Pietersen 0.2-0-0-1

Kumar to Dhoni, OUT, finally Bangalore hold on to a catch. Samrt bowling by PK, Dhoni wants to go over long-on, PK has bowled a legcutter, and the thick outside edge takes it to Bishnoi at long-off, an absolute sitter

MS Dhoni c Bishnoi b Kumar 16 (17m 14b 0x4 1x6) SR: 114.28

Chennai Super Kings 144/3   SK Raina 21* (21b 1x6)   P Kumar 3-0-30-1

Kumar to Raina, OUT, slower ball, from round the stumps, angling in, and Raina goes on side, lofted shot, and can't clear Kohli at long-on... the UP bowler has the last laugh in this mini UP battle, incidentally during a match being played between two plays from South India

SK Raina c Kohli b Kumar 28 (31m 29b 1x4 1x6) SR: 96.55

Chennai Super Kings 165/4   A Flintoff 14* (10b 2x4)   P Kumar 4-0-37-2

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   A Flintoff 22* (13b 2x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 4-0-35-1
