1.2

Nehra to Vijay, no run, slightly fuller, good looking cover drive from Vijay, placement isn't good so he doesn't get any runs

1.3

Nehra to Vijay, FOUR, Nehra surprises Vijay with a quick bouncer, Vijay was looking to get on the front foot, gets a top edge on an attempted pull and the ball sails over the keeper's head for a boundary

1.4

Nehra to Vijay, 1 run, this one's again on legstump, doesn't rise as much as the previous delivery, only about waist high, pulled away to deep fine leg

1.6

Nehra to Vijay, no run, length ball on off, vijay is quickly onto the front foot and goes for a booming on-drive, a bit of a mishit and it goes to mid-on on the bounce

Nannes to Vijay, 1 run, another thick outside edge to third man, this time by Vijay, who was pushing at a ball angling across him

4.3

Nehra to Vijay, no run, this time it's outside off, Vijay crashes it towards cover, but again the placement wasn't great, so Vijay doesn't get a run

4.4

Nehra to Vijay, OUT, short ball does the trick for Nehra, Vijay's gone, the batsmen went for a pull, it got a thick top edge and the ball swirled towards extra cover, for a moment it seemed Rajat Bhatia and David Warner might collide attempting the catch, Bhatia takes a simple catch in the end after clashing with Warner

M Vijay c Bhatia b Nehra 14 (13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 107.69

Chennai Super Kings 36/1   M Vijay 14 (13b 2x4)
