14 May 2009 (20-over match)

Kallis to Raina, no run, and he's welcomed with a short ball, Raina doesn't play those to well and its much the same today, fending at it off his toes and dropping it near his feet


Kallis to Raina, no run, another short ball, this time Raina gets in line and defends to point


Kallis to Raina, no run, a wicket-maiden over, fantastic! Kallis bangs it in short, Raina goes flashing and very nearly gets an edge on that, he just got up on one leg and flayed the bat at ball

Chennai Super Kings 32/1   SK Raina 0* (3b)

Kumar to Raina, 1 run, too much room outside off stump and so Raina cuts past point for one


Kumar to Raina, no run, just short of a length, Raina goes back and pushes the ball to cover


Kumar to Raina, FOUR, ah the short ball is being used a lot against Raina, who this time gets into a tangle as he pulls across the line, getting a top edge safely over the keeper for four


Kumar to Raina, FOUR, there's the slog to a slower ball, just spotted it early and clubbed across the line, hit safely over the infield and it finds the ropes for another boundary to Raina

Chennai Super Kings 43/1   SK Raina 9* (7b 2x4)

Kallis to Raina, FOUR, short, wide and slapped - while airborne - just over point's fingertips


Kallis to Raina, no run, much better delivery, pitched up outside off with the angle across and Raina hurriedly gets into position to watchfully defend to point


Kallis to Raina, OUT, done in by a South African tag team! Kallis digs it in short outside leg stump, into Raina's body, and he just hops up and turns it off his ribs toward midwicket, where van der Merwe dives forward to take a good catch

SK Raina c van der Merwe b Kallis 13 (10b 3x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

Chennai Super Kings 48/2   SK Raina 13 (10b 3x4)
