Mascarenhas to Raina, FOUR, gives him room and this time Raina gets nicely beside the line and times and places the slice perfectly between point and cover

Chennai Super Kings 17/1   SK Raina 13* (8b 1x4 1x6)   AD Mascarenhas 2-0-16-0

Mascarenhas to Badrinath, FOUR, nice shot to relieve the pressure, he gets to the pitch of a full delivery and carves it over cover, the ball just drops short of the rope

Chennai Super Kings 25/2   S Badrinath 7* (5b 1x4)   AD Mascarenhas 2.3-0-22-0

Pathan to Badrinath, FOUR, lovely placement, Badri makes a bit of room and waits for the spi, he gets on top of the bounce and cuts just wide of short third man

Chennai Super Kings 32/2   S Badrinath 13* (9b 2x4)   YK Pathan 2.3-0-9-2

Kamran Khan to Badrinath, FOUR, this time Badri stands tall gets on top of the bounce and punches it wide of backward point, third man lets it slip between his legs, sloppy stuff, we've seen three such misfields today (counting the earlier match as well)

Chennai Super Kings 45/2   S Badrinath 18* (13b 3x4)   Kamran Khan 0.4-0-5-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 60/2   SK Raina 35* (20b 2x4 3x6)   SK Trivedi 0.3-0-5-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 64/2   SK Raina 39* (21b 3x4 3x6)   SK Trivedi 0.4-0-9-0

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   S Badrinath 25* (19b 4x4)   SK Trivedi 1-0-14-0

Warne to Raina, FOUR, yet another misfield! Raina kneels down and clubs a short ball down to deep midwicket, Asnodkar over runs it and makes a mess of it

Chennai Super Kings 75/2   SK Raina 45* (24b 4x4 3x6)   SK Warne 0.3-0-6-0

Warne to Raina, FOUR, Rains rocks on the backfoot to seize on a short delivery and slaps it wide of cover, there's a big gap and he exploits it, that's his fifty as well!

Chennai Super Kings 81/2   SK Raina 50* (26b 5x4 3x6)   SK Warne 1-0-12-0

Warne to Raina, FOUR, brute power! He rocks back to a short delivery and slaps it hard in the air and bisects the window between cover and extra cover

Chennai Super Kings 93/4   SK Raina 57* (33b 6x4 3x6)   SK Warne 2.1-0-18-1

Kamran Khan to Raina, FOUR, short and wide outside off and asking to be biffed, Raina works his wrists and thumps it well wide of backward point

Chennai Super Kings 102/4   SK Raina 65* (38b 7x4 3x6)   Kamran Khan 1.4-0-13-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 114/4   SK Raina 71* (45b 8x4 3x6)   SK Trivedi 1.4-0-20-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 118/4   SK Raina 75* (46b 9x4 3x6)   SK Trivedi 1.5-0-24-0

Patel to Raina, FOUR, take that! It's a low full toss and he makes room and cracks it past extra cover, he reckons he's got to three figures and starts celebrating! Well apparently the giant scoreboard got it wrong

Chennai Super Kings 159/4   SK Raina 98* (54b 10x4 5x6)   MM Patel 3.3-0-20-1

Patel to Morkel, FOUR, overpitched outside off and Morkel picks it early and scoops it over mid-off, raw power takes it to the rope, the fielder was wide

Chennai Super Kings 164/5   JA Morkel 4* (1b 1x4)   MM Patel 4-0-25-2
