Vinay Kumar to Hayden, FOUR, super shot that, just saw the marginally fuller ball and gets back to pummel that through the covers, where one man dived in vain, for four more

Chennai Super Kings 17/0   ML Hayden 13* (6b 3x4)   R Vinay Kumar 0.3-0-13-0

Kumar to Hayden, FOUR, and he too gets the treatment from Hayden, who makes room and struts down, hammering a short and wide ball over extra cover

Chennai Super Kings 24/0   ML Hayden 19* (9b 4x4)   P Kumar 0.1-0-4-0

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

Chennai Super Kings 39/1   SK Raina 5* (6b 1x4)   P Kumar 1.5-0-19-0

Chennai Super Kings 52/2   MS Dhoni 4* (2b 1x4)   JH Kallis 2-1-9-2

Vinay Kumar to Hayden, FOUR, super shot when you're on 49! Vinay pitches it up on and around off stump and Hayden unfurls a clever little reverse paddle that takes him to his half-century, well played

Chennai Super Kings 93/2   ML Hayden 53* (34b 5x4 2x6)   R Vinay Kumar 2-0-25-0

Kumar to Morkel, FOUR, picks the slower ball and flat-bats the short ball between midwicket and mid-on, gave himself the elevation and thats a four after ages for Chennai

Chennai Super Kings 118/5   JA Morkel 9* (6b 1x4)   P Kumar 2.3-0-29-0

Vinay Kumar to Muralitharan, FOUR, good old fashioned swat from Murali, looking one way and swinging the other, makes some good contact on that ball and beats mid-off for four

Chennai Super Kings 123/8   M Muralitharan 4* (1b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 3-0-30-2
