Harris to Hayden, no run, a touch short, bit of room for Hadyen, who swings at it but misses


Harris to Hayden, FOUR, Hayden doesn't take much time to get going, that was on legstump, around waist high, easy pickings for Hayden, swings it down to fine leg for four

Chennai Super Kings 6/0   ML Hayden 5* (3b 1x4)

Singh to Hayden, no run, RP Singh starts off with a corker, fractionally outside the offstump, Hayden was looking to drive that past mid-off, he's beaten


Singh to Hayden, no run, back of a length, and a bit wider this time, Hayden advances down the track as he regularly does and tries to swipe it to midwicket, misses the ball


Singh to Hayden, 1 wide, outswing for RP but that started from too wide outside the offstump


Singh to Hayden, no run, much better from RP, spearing towards middle and leg, pegs Hayden to the backfoot, he defends it back down the pitch


Singh to Hayden, no run, length ball, around the offstump, Hayden was down the track to loft over the bowler's head, mistimes it to the keeper


Singh to Hayden, FOUR, overpitched from RP, Hayden shuffles across and tries to slap it to midwicket, gets an edge which takes the ball towards sqaure leg, he wouldn't mind as it fetches him four runs

Singh to Hayden, FOUR, just a touch short from RP, that's all Hayden needs, he carves powerfully over cover for a boundary


Singh to Hayden, SIX, Hayden's stepping on it here, a bit of width from RP, Hayden bends his knees to get under the ball, a thick top edge as he throws the bat at it, enough to carry the ball over the third man boundary

Chennai Super Kings 32/0   ML Hayden 21* (13b 3x4 1x6)

Smith to Hayden, 2 wides, starts off with a terrible delivery, way down the leg side, Gilchrist does well to get a glove on it when standing up to the stumps


Smith to Hayden, no run, shorter and wider from Smith, not much elegance from Hayden here, he crashes it towards extra cover but straight ot the fielder


Smith to Hayden, SIX, another six off a mishit, Hayden again bent his knee to get under and hammer it over cover, mishit over long-on sails over the ropes

Shoaib Ahmed to Hayden, FOUR, starts with a short and wide ball, 110 kmh, Hayden waits for it and hammers it through the covers for four


Shoaib Ahmed to Hayden, no run, 114kmh this time, Hayden was looking to shovel that shortish ball over midwicket, but he was through the shot before the ball came on


Shoaib Ahmed to Hayden, no run, Shoaib keeps it short, Hayden stays on the backfoot and slams it towards cover, straight to the fielder


Shoaib Ahmed to Hayden, FOUR, a Hadyen special, he decides if Shoaib is going to bowl so slow he walk down the pitch to meet it, he was at least three paces down before he smoked that over the bowler's head, total disrespect for the bowler


Shoaib Ahmed to Hayden, OUT, Shoaib has the last laugh, Hayden's gone, that ball was very close to offstump, Hayden goes for the cut anyway, a top edge ends up in a low catch for RP Singh at short third man

ML Hayden c Singh b Shoaib Ahmed 43 (26b 5x4 3x6) SR: 165.38

Chennai Super Kings 61/1   ML Hayden 43 (26b 5x4 3x6)
