Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 17 Runs 1 Wkt | CSK: 208/5

  • RA Jadeja4 (1b)
  • DJ Bravo25 (15b)
  • R Vinay Kumar4-0-53-1
  • V Kohli2-0-36-0

For 38 overs of the game, Bangalore had their noses in front. They needed just a decent over in the 39th to seal the game. Kohli was given the ball - over Bhatkal - and Albie Morkel changed everything around with an over that cost 28 runs!

Still, in the last over, the game could have gone either way, especially when Morkel was dismissed but a Vinay Kumar no-ball that went for four turned it around yet again.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will be pinching themselves right now, but I doubt they will still know what hit them.

Kudos to du Plessis, MS Dhoni and then to Morkel in the end!

Vinay Kumar to Jadeja, FOUR runs, edged away and that has gone away to the fence for a four! Chennai have absolutely stunned the Bangalore side and won their second of four games, and I must add, out of nowhere!

They are taking a lot of time over it. Already been a minute since the last ball was bowled.

Vinay Kumar to Bravo, 1 run, short, pulled away and the batsman gets a single! The probability of a Super Over gets higher. But the new man Jadeja is on strike!

Vinay Kumar to Bravo, no run, cut attempted and the batsman gets nothing on it!

What a turnaround this has been! Bangalore are shell-shocked.

Vinay Kumar to Bravo, SIX runs, full-toss, outside the off-stump and he slashes it. Okay wait, how did that go for a six? It was a dipping full-toss and it has gone for a six? Incredible!

Vinay Kumar to Bravo, (no ball) FOUR runs, that is definitely a no-ball! Gone above the waist height, oh it was above at his chest probably! And the pull shot went as a top-edge to the fine-leg for a four.

Vinay Kumar to Morkel, OUT, oh he is out this time! Pitched outside the off-stump and it was fullish, Morkel went for a slash but only managed to give an easy catch to the sweeper fielder.

Morkel's batting at a staggering strike-rate of nearly 500. Kohli is a little stunned I think
