0.2

Edwards to Patel, OUT, and Fidel strikes second up, and three matches ina row we have the scorecard reading 0 for 1, this was fast, 142ks, bouncing into his ribs, and Parthiv gloves it down the leg side. Unlucky way to get out, but it was a good delivery, surprising Parthiv with the bounce

PA Patel c †Gilchrist b Edwards 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Chennai Super Kings 0/1   ML Hayden 0* (0b)   FH Edwards 0.2-0-0-1

6.5

Sharma to Raina, OUT, finally they hold on to a catch, and what a catch it is, thrown up to Raian who absolutely murders it back to Sharma, low and fast, there is not even a second to react, but Sharma bends low and catches it smoothly, throws it miles in the air to celebrate, and what a catch it was, no lesser celebration would to justice to it

SK Raina c & b Sharma 25 (19b 1x4 2x6) SR: 131.57

Chennai Super Kings 64/2   ML Hayden 35* (22b 7x4)   RG Sharma 0.5-0-2-1

12.3

Ojha to Dhoni, OUT, Ojha gets another one, gets this to rip, Dhoni has stepped out, is short of the pitch, he is looking extra cover, but this slices off the face and lobs straight to sweeper-cover

MS Dhoni c Shoaib Ahmed b Ojha 22 (22b 1x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Chennai Super Kings 102/3   ML Hayden 49* (34b 8x4)   PP Ojha 1.3-0-10-1

12.6

Ojha to Hayden, OUT, what a big over from Ojha, two wickets, and it is Hayden now, the big fish, this is bowled full, into the pads, Hayden is looking to charge down, but is cramped by it, and is too close to the ball, so doesn't get elevation, and it goes straight to midwicket

ML Hayden c Sharma b Ojha 49 (35b 8x4 0x6) SR: 140.00

Chennai Super Kings 103/4   JDP Oram 1* (2b)   PP Ojha 2-0-11-2

16.5

Venugopal Rao to Morkel, OUT, what price justice indeed, this is a much better hit, off the middle, slog sweep, goes where he wants it to, towards deep midwicket, and finds the boundary fielder, poetic justice

JA Morkel c Singh b Venugopal Rao 13 (7b 1x4 1x6) SR: 185.71

Chennai Super Kings 129/5   JDP Oram 14* (18b 1x4)   Y Venugopal Rao 3.5-0-31-1

19.5

Singh to Badrinath, OUT, and this was always coming, just back of a length, Badri throws his bat at it, top-edges it, it goes miles in the air, and RP catches it on the adjacent pitch

S Badrinath c & b Singh 8 (9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Chennai Super Kings 165/6   JDP Oram 41* (28b 4x4 2x6)   RP Singh 2.5-0-32-1
