    0.6 caught this time! Vijay Kumar bangs in the short ball, Parthiv takes him on and plays the hook, the ball hits the top edge and flies extremely high in the air towards long leg, RP Singh sprints to his right from fine leg and covers a lot of ground to get to the ball, he takes a supremely judged catch while on the run 4/1
    5.4 a blinder at cover point! The length was full outside the off stump, Fleming came forward and smashed the square drive in the air, he hit that so hard that the ball travelled extremely quickly to Sharma who jumped up and took the catch with both hands 33/3
    3.3 caught! RP sends down a short ball, Anirudha tries to pull off the front foot from outside off stump, he was in no position whatsoever and top-edges it high in the air to Afridi at cover point, that is a simple catch and Chennai have lost two early wickets once again 15/2
    13.3 what a soft dismissal! Bangar goes round the wicket and delivers a low full toss outside off stump, Raina drives at it and chips the ball in the air and straight to Sharma at cover, Raina's gone after getting well set 82/5
    6.5 what a catch! It's Gibbs this time! Afridi bowled a poor ball, it was extremely short and very wide, Badrinath chased it and tried to cut without much power behind the shot, he connected with the bottom of the bat and hit it in the air, the ball might have carried to short third man but it never got the chance, Gibbs moved quickly to his left from backward point and dived full length to take the catch, outstanding athleticism 43/4
    14.5 and he has got him! Dhoni's struggle ends, he got squared up and tried to pull a flat delivery through square leg, he got a bottom edge on to his pad and the ball lobbed up all the way towards Afridi at point, another simple catch and Chennai are sinking, actually Dhoni hit the ball on to his pad and hit it once again during the follow through of his shot as the ball bounced off his thigh 86/6

    18.4 bowled him! Joginder has been backing away towards leg too often, RP replies with the perfect delivery: the leg stump yorker, Joginder tries to squeeze the ball out on the off side but misses, the ball crashes into the base of leg stump 124/7

Gony pitches the ball on a good length and angles it into the right-hander, Gibbs steps out of his crease and gets cramped for room by the angle of the delivery into him, he pushes at the ball with a straight bat and hits it off the middle but straight back to Gony who holds a sharp catch on his follow through 24/1

    16.1 Sharma's holed out! He stepped out of his crease and was looking to loft the ball over deep midwicket, it was the doosra from Murali and Sharma got a thick leading edge that swirled high in the air towards Badrinath who settles under the catch at long on 125/3
