Bhatia to Raina, OUT, Raina holes out to midwicket, whoah didn't Delhi need that breakthrough, Raina was down the track to laucnh the ball over his favourite midwicket region, he hits it well but it finds Dilshan about a yard in from the boundary, coolly taken by Dilshan

Bhatia to Badrinath, 4 byes, slower ball out the back of the hand, full and outside leg stump, Badrinath makes room and swings and the ball goes between his leg and the sticks for four byes


Bhatia to Badrinath, 2 runs, thick inside edge to deep midwicket off a might swing


Bhatia to Badrinath, 1 run, where's he going? Walks right across and outside off stump and plays a big shot to a slower ball, resulting in a top edge that pops up and lands safely at short third man


Bhatia to Morkel, 1 run, pitched up outside off stump and Morkel plants his foot forward, clubbing that down to long-off


Bhatia to Badrinath, OUT, knocked over! Badrinath again starts to walk across the stumps in an attempt to paddle the ball down to fine leg but this time Bhatia is alert and slides in a quick yorker that sneaks between bat and leg to disturb the furniture

S Badrinath b Bhatia 45 (34b 4x4 2x6) SR: 132.35


Bhatia to Dhoni, no run, slower ball, pitched up on a length and Dhoni pats it back

Chennai Super Kings 130/4   R Bhatia 2-0-11-2

Bhatia to Dhoni, 1 run, Bhatia starts with a slower legcutter, 99kmh, dabbed towards mid-on for a single


Bhatia to Oram, 1 run, full on middle stump, whipped to long-on by Oram, just a single as the fielder is deep


Bhatia to Dhoni, 1 run, low full toss on middle and off, an ungainly shot from Dhoni gets it away to mid-on


Bhatia to Oram, no run, length ball just outside off, Oram wanted to run the ball off the face of the bat, but was beaten


Bhatia to Oram, 1 run, this time he drives it with soft hands towards mid-off to get himself an easy single


Bhatia to Dhoni, 2 runs, overpitched on middle, a trademark Dhoni shot has the ball racing past the bowler, timing was not good enough though and long-off can come around and cut if off to keep the batsmen down to two

Chennai Super Kings 144/5   R Bhatia 3-0-17-2
