    5.5 that's over, short and outside off, Goel goes for the pull but can't get on top of it, top edge balloons high and Parthiv Patel gets under it to hang on, Chennai get their first breakthrough. Gony is rewarded for some disciplined bowling. 56/1
    10.2 holes out this time, slower one and Hopes can't get the timing and lofts it straight to Joginder at long-off, too easy for him and Amarnath is overjoyed, Chennai break through, Brett Lee sighs in the dug-out 111/2
    17.4 he's holed out, desperate times look for desperate measures, Sangakkara down the ground and tries to loft him over long-on but can only find the fielder, Murali gets Sanga (now that's a rare entry in the scorebook). This match is headed in only one direction. Down south towards the Bay of Bengal. 190/4
    14.2 huge wicket that silences the crowd! Joginder takes off the pace and deceives Yuvraj, big hit goes wrong, not much timing and Amarnath comes around towards deep extra cover to take a sharp catch under pressure. Yuvraj needs to go and Punjab's hopes are slowly going up in smoke. 153/3
