23 April 2009 (20-over match)

Sangwan to Patel, OUT, drilled straight up AB's throat, this was a wide half-volley, should have been hit. Hit it was, but straight to AB at covers, and despite the pace behind the ball, it was a fairly easy catch for a fielder of AB's standard

PA Patel c de Villiers b Sangwan 16 (15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 106.66

Chennai Super Kings 57/1   ML Hayden 35* (17b 4x4 1x6)   PJ Sangwan 0.2-0-1-1

Sangwan to Hayden, OUT, and the extra ball because of the no-ball gets Sangwan the big wicket of Hayden, what a big moment, this was short but maybe not short enough for the pull, and Hayden top-edges it for a simple catch for Nannes running in from long-on

ML Hayden c Nannes b Sangwan 57 (27b 5x4 3x6) SR: 211.11

Chennai Super Kings 90/2   SK Raina 5* (7b)   PJ Sangwan 2-0-10-2

Vettori to Dhoni, OUT, and Vettori strikes, this is quicker and flatter, Dhoni looks to force it through the off side, gets an edge, Karthik, wearing the baseball mask he got from Peter McGlashan, juggles it but catches the rebound. Delhi are back through the old wizard

MS Dhoni c †Karthik b Vettori 5 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Chennai Super Kings 108/3   SK Raina 18* (15b 2x4)   DL Vettori 1.3-0-9-1

Sangwan to Raina, OUT, what a bowling change, and Sangwan's golden spell continues, Raina tries his trademark pull over midwicket, but this it a touch too full to try that, and he hets more elevation than distance, and AB judgest the catch to perfection at the wide long-on boundary

SK Raina c de Villiers b Sangwan 41 (27b 5x4 1x6) SR: 151.85

Chennai Super Kings 139/4   A Flintoff 7* (10b)   PJ Sangwan 3.1-0-19-3

Nehra to Flintoff, OUT, Nehra strikes. Flintoff goes. slower ball again, and Flintoff is early into this loft, chipping it to Warner at long-off, what a twist

A Flintoff c sub (DA Warner) b Nehra 16 (17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 94.11

Chennai Super Kings 156/5   JA Morkel 7* (4b 1x4)   A Nehra 3-0-28-1

Vettori to Badrinath, OUT, a dot ball, and a wicket, Badri, who looked out of place through the innings, steps out, and hits a flat delivery straight to Warner, the substitute, at long-off. How Delhi have come back. Good move too, to keep Vettori for the death

S Badrinath c sub (DA Warner) b Vettori 7 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Chennai Super Kings 168/6   JA Morkel 12* (11b 1x4)   DL Vettori 3.3-0-23-2

Vettori to Gony, OUT, and he has run himself out now, hit powerfully towards Sehwag at cover, who underarms it to Vettori, and Gony is slow and short of the crease. What a twist. The crucial second was lost in this run-out because of a near-collission between the batsmen

MS Gony run out 6 (2b 0x4 1x6) SR: 300.00

Chennai Super Kings 175/7   JA Morkel 12* (12b 1x4)   DL Vettori 4-0-29-2

Nannes to Joginder Sharma, OUT, Warner, the substitute, makes the difference again. Joginder hit a fullish delivery straight to mid-off and ran, and gave up half-way through, and Warner hit the middle stump out of the ground

Joginder Sharma run out 4 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Chennai Super Kings 179/8   JA Morkel 12* (12b 1x4)   DP Nannes 3.3-0-31-0

Nannes to Morkel, OUT, this is not smart from Bala, Morkel fails to hit a full and wide delivery, but Bala for some reason wants the single, Morkel doesn't. Sangwan from cover flicks it to the bowler, and Bala is at the strikers' end

L Balaji run out 0 (0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Chennai Super Kings 179/9   JA Morkel 12* (13b 1x4)   DP Nannes 3.4-0-31-0
