Kallis to Vijay, no run, back of a length just outside off and steered away to backward point


Kallis to Vijay, no run, a tad fuller, but by no means a half-volley, starts to come back in from outside off stump and Vijay is hurried into his shot, he adjusts on the flick and plays it back


Kallis to Vijay, OUT, there's a good change-up delivery! Kallis put in the effort and produces a short one that surprises Vijay, a tad late into his attempted pull, and he gives a catch to Uthappa down at fine leg, who gets across and times his collection to perfection

M Vijay c Uthappa b Kallis 5 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55


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   JH Kallis 1-1-0-1

Kallis to Hayden, 1 run, pitches it outside off, Hayden gets behind it and punches toward cover


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


Kallis to Dhoni, no run, short of a length on the stumps and awkwardly turned to short leg


Kallis to Dhoni, FOUR, top shot! Dhoni takes on another short ball by getting into position early, then rolling the wrists to pull that superbly in front of square for four

Chennai Super Kings 52/2   JH Kallis 2-1-9-2

Kallis to Dhoni, 1 run, short of a length outside off and he gets back and crunches to mid-off


Kallis to Hayden, 1 leg bye, slides down leg stump, beats the bat but there's a leg bye to gully involved


Kallis to Dhoni, 1 run, gets forward and drives the fuller ball very hard, on the rise, but mid-off is pretty sharp and a super dive from Praveen saves three for Bangalore


Kallis to Hayden, 1 run, swings at a fuller one angling in and inside-edges past midwicket


Kallis to Dhoni, no run, beaten on the flirt, just looking to square drive the full ball but no contact


Kallis to Dhoni, 1 run, gets across early and turns the ball from off stump to midwicket and runs
