2.1

Kumar to Hayden, 1 run, low inswinging full toss and he clips it to deep square-leg, there's protection there

2.3

Chennai Super Kings 18/0   ML Hayden 3* (3b)

3.1

Kallis to Hayden, FOUR, strays on the pads and he times it well past midwicket, Kumble gives it everything as he sprints and tries to pull it back but the ball accelerates as it reaches the rope

3.2

Kallis to Hayden, no run, comes down the pitch and goes for an almighty heave and misses

3.3

Kallis to Hayden, 1 run, angles it on the body and he clips it down to deep square-leg

3.5

Kallis to Hayden, 2 runs, close! He pushes it just wide of mid-off and van der Merwe slides and cuts it off, they take a chance with the second run and the throw is just wide of the stumps, Kallis was a little lazy in getting to the stumps, otherwise Parthiv would have been in deep trouble

3.6

Chennai Super Kings 35/0   ML Hayden 11* (8b 1x4)

Chennai Super Kings 38/0   ML Hayden 13* (10b 1x4)

5.1

Kumble to Hayden, no run, and Kumble nearly snares him first ball, Hayden chips one back to the bowler but the ball dips and bounces

5.2

Kumble to Hayden, FOUR, flashy and very risky! He makes room and slaps a slower delivery dropped short, Kallis gives it his all at short cover to pull off a one-handed blinder

5.3

Kumble to Hayden, no run, attempts a reverse sweep and he's caught on the pads but outside the line of leg, stifled appeal

5.4

Kumble to Hayden, 1 run, pushes it hard down to long-on

5.6

Kumble to Hayden, no run, tries to work it to the on side but the ball clips his body and rolls to the off side

6.3

Vinay Kumar to Hayden, 2 runs, swings across the line and mistimes it a bit to deep midwicket

6.4

6.5

Vinay Kumar to Hayden, no run

6.6

Vinay Kumar to Hayden, OUT, Bangalore have got the valuable breakthrough! Hayden tries to mow him across the line again but Vinay takes the pace off the ball, he doesn't get the desired elevation and Pandey takes it comfortably at deep midwicket

Chennai Super Kings 61/1   ML Hayden 26 (19b 2x4 1x6)
