    2.4 what a corker! short of a length, rising, speedy and outside off, takes off after pitching and snicks the outside edge of Parthiv's bat, through to the keeper and the umpire nods his head. Parthiv had no idea about that one. That was a Lee special. 26/1

    6.2 bowled 'em! good length ball outside off, Hayden tries to pummel it through the leg side but can only get an inside edge onto the stumps, crack goes the timber and Punjab have struck. Hayden goes after a sweet cameo. Now I wonder if Sangakkara said anything in Hayden's ear. I can keep wondering. 57/2

    7.1 Hopes strikes! full and outside off, jagging back in, Dhoni trapped on the back foot and tries to tap it to the off side, huge appeal straight away and Mark Benson gives that one, looked as if there could have been an inside edge there, but Dhoni walks back quickly 62/3
    12.1 Mota breaks through, good length ball and slightly wide again, Raina hammers it towards long-on but can't get the timing, straight down Irfan Pathan's throat, he gurgles that one without any problems. Mota plays for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy but is starring for Punjab here. 128/4

    15.3 super yorker from Irfan, that takes out middle and leg stump, Oram looks to back away and tonk it over extra cover but his bat is still in the air as the stumps are rattled. Irfan is ecstatic, Preity does a jig in the stands, and the crowd goes ballistic. Welcome to Mohali 167/5

    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
