Indian Premier League - 44th match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Chennai Super Kings

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 2 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)


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

Chennai Super Kings 32/1   ML Hayden 26* (12b 4x4 1x6)   JH Kallis 0.3-0-0-1


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   ML Hayden 29* (15b 4x4 1x6)   JH Kallis 1.4-1-5-2


van der Merwe to Dhoni, OUT, well held, Roelof! Thats one for the reflex album, he dove to his right side, the wrong side, and intercepted a hard drive in the air from Dhoni, who used his feet to a tossed up delivery and chipped it back

MS Dhoni c & b van der Merwe 18 (20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Chennai Super Kings 93/3   ML Hayden 53* (34b 5x4 2x6)   RE van der Merwe 2.1-0-18-1


Kumble to Hayden, OUT, innings comes to an end with a superb catch on the ropes! Kumble floats it up, Hayden swings hard, the ball is up in the for some time during which Vinay Kumar runs across on the deep midwicket boundary trying to size it up, then he runs and takes it, losing balance, he trips ... whoops, one step, two .. but all is well in the end as he makes sure he's just inside the ropes ... amazing reflexes and recovery

ML Hayden c Vinay Kumar b Kumble 60 (38b 5x4 3x6) SR: 157.89

Chennai Super Kings 101/4   JDP Oram 1* (3b)   A Kumble 2.2-0-6-1


Kumble to Badrinath, OUT, the wheels on Chennai's bus go ... off, off, off ... and thats 22 balls since the last boundary, as Badri comes down and tries to go for half a dozen but fails to find the desired elevation, Uthappa at long-on settles under it and takes with ease

S Badrinath c Uthappa b Kumble 2 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Chennai Super Kings 107/5   JDP Oram 5* (11b)   A Kumble 3.1-0-7-2


Kumar to Morkel, OUT, another one goes down, and this too a full toss! Albie just doesn't look the player he's made out to be, slicing a wide full toss to Kumble at extra cover, who takes it easily

JA Morkel c Kumble b Kumar 9 (7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Chennai Super Kings 118/6   JDP Oram 7* (13b)   P Kumar 2.4-0-29-1


Vinay Kumar to Oram, OUT, edged and taken! Vinay persists with that attempted yorker outside off stump, lands it right in the blockhole and Oram, backing away, swishes a thin nick through to Boucher

JDP Oram c †Boucher b Vinay Kumar 7 (15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Chennai Super Kings 118/7   SB Jakati 0* (2b)   R Vinay Kumar 2.2-0-25-1


Vinay Kumar to Balaji, OUT, a first-baller for Balaji, making a total mess of his attempt to pull a short-pitched ball dug in outside off stump, gets a top edge that Kumble gobbles up at midwicket

L Balaji c Kumble b Vinay Kumar 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Chennai Super Kings 118/8   SB Jakati 0* (2b)   R Vinay Kumar 2.3-0-25-2


Kumar to Muralitharan, OUT, full ball now sliding down leg stump, Murali swings and sets off as the ball rolls into the covers, he's just short of his crease as PK collects, turns, and under-arms the ball onto the nonstriker's stumps ... basically Murali didn't ground his bat

M Muralitharan run out 4 (2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Chennai Super Kings 128/9   SB Jakati 6* (6b 1x4)   P Kumar 3.3-0-34-1


Kumar to Jakati, 1 run, OUT, gets to the pitch and drives it down to long-on, the sweeper collects easily and has plenty of time to lob the throw back to PK, who collects and breaks the stumps to get Tyagi

S Tyagi run out 0 (0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Chennai Super Kings 129/10   SB Jakati 7* (7b 1x4)   P Kumar 3.4-0-35-1
