Indian Premier League - 22nd match

Chennai Super Kings v Rajasthan Royals

Chennai Super Kings won by 38 runs

8.1

Trivedi to Badrinath, no run, rush of blood as Badri kneels down slightly and attempts a flashy drive through the covers and misses it completely

8.2

Trivedi to Badrinath, 1 run, he gives him the charge and slams it off the meat of the bat past the covers and a brilliant diving attempt by Yusuf cuts off a boundary

8.3

Trivedi to Raina, FOUR, very well played, the ball slides down leg and Raina shuffles and deliberately gets a faint trickle past the keeper

8.4

Trivedi to Raina, FOUR, not the most attractive of shots, he makes room and swings blindly but manages a thick inside edge which beats the keeper and runs down to fine leg

8.5

Trivedi to Raina, 1 run, fires a yorker outside off and he digs it out to third man

8.6

Trivedi to Badrinath, FOUR, excellent adjustment! The ball is short and Badri thinks of letting it go at first but then cheekily decided to upper cut it wide of the keeper, not a bad ball, the bowler was a touch unlucky

Chennai Super Kings 69/2   SK Trivedi 1-0-14-0

16.1

Trivedi to Raina, 1 run, gets on his knee and mows him down to long-on

16.2

Trivedi to Dhoni, 1 run, the slower ball and Dhoni checks his shot and tucks it down to long-on

16.3

Trivedi to Raina, no run, loses control of the radar and slips a yorker wide outside off, Trivedi somehow gets away with a wide

16.4

Trivedi to Raina, FOUR, excellent placement! Raina gets under the bounce to a pitched up delivery and scoops it in the tiny gap between deep cover and deep extra cover and Quiney makes a mess of the ad hoardings

16.5

Trivedi to Raina, FOUR, slower ball on the pads and he clips it with ease wide of midwicket, lots of power on the shot as the ball scorches away

16.6

Trivedi to Raina, 2 runs, driven hard and a misfield at cover allows 2 runs

Chennai Super Kings 120/4   SK Trivedi 2-0-26-0

18.1

Trivedi to Dhoni, 2 runs, that's a good slower ball and he picks it from outside off and places it to fine leg

18.2

Trivedi to Dhoni, 2 runs, works it across the line wide of midwicket and pushes hard for the second run and makes it

18.3

Trivedi to Dhoni, no run, Dhoni fails to pick up the slower one this time as he makes room, swings and misses

18.4

Trivedi to Dhoni, 1 run, the slower ball really stops on him and he stays at the crease and thumps it to long-off

18.5

Trivedi to Raina, 2 runs, Raina gets a life! He swings to long-on and the ball may have just fallen short of Trivedi but he recovers well enough to hurl a flat throw to the keeper, Rawat whips off the bails and Raina dives and makes his ground

18.6

Trivedi to Raina, 1 wide, that was harsh, comes round the wicket and Raina swings and misses, not that wide to be penalised I'm afraid

18.6

Trivedi to Raina, 1 run, short outside off and slapped with brute force to deep extra cover, that looked like four the moment he hit it

Chennai Super Kings 153/4   SK Trivedi 3-0-35-0
