    0.4 caught! Vidyut flirts with one too many outside off stump, the length is good and the line is wide outside off, Vidyut throws his bat hard at the ball, looking for the drive through cover, he gets a thick outside edge that speeds towards Jayawardene who takes a sharp catch to his left at first slip 10/1
    2.2 caught! Fleming moves forward to a good length ball outside off and tries to drive on the up, he's hit it very hard but the ball goes straight to Karan Goel who takes a sharp catch at cover, that ball was travelling at great speed 20/2
    6.5 caught! Chawla shortens the length and Raina attempts the mighty slog over deep midwicket, he gets a top edge that goes high in the air towards point where Marsh takes the catch, Chawla's broken a partnership that was steaming along 64/3
    17.3 caught! just reward for some lovely death bowling, Badrinath backs away and tries to loft the yorker over cover, he mis-times it and hits it straight to Yuvraj who takes a sitter at cover 155/4

    12.5 caught! That is a vital wicket, Balaji bangs the short ball and Marsh tries to pull off the front foot, the ball gets to him quicker that expected and Marsh top edges the ball in the air to Amarnath who runs in from deep square leg to take the catch 96/4
    1.6 caught! Morkel bowls a short of a length ball down leg side, Hopes tries to glance the ball towards the fine leg boundary but feathers a nick through to Dhoni who takes an easy catch 16/1
    4.3 caught at third man! Gony pitches the ball just short of a length and angles it across the left-hander, Goel tries to play the upper cut and hits it with no real power, the ball goes straight to Morkel at third man who takes a simple catch 29/2
    12.1 bowled him! Sarwan jumps down the track and tries to pull Balaji, the length isn't short enough and the ball beats the cross-bat swipe and crashes into middle stump, Sarwan hadn't hit a boundary and was evidently feeling the need to get a move on 95/3
    13.1 caught!! Yuvraj is gone, the ball is short and wide outside off stump, Yuvraj stands on the back foot and cuts hard, the ball flies quickly towards point where Fleming jumps up and takes a sharp catch, Chennai erupts and begins to sing 'We will rock you' as Yuvraj departs, that may well be the end of Punjab's challenge tonight 97/5
    14.6 Murali's got him! Jayawardene goes on the front foot and tries to hit over midwicket once again, Murali's length is a little shorter and it was the doosra, the top edge flies over Dhoni's head for Vidyut who moves from short third man and takes a simple catch, Murali is delighted 115/6
    19.3 caught! and that is that! Balaji bowls a slower ball just short of a length, Pathan pulls off the front foot and lofts the ball straight to Raina at deep square leg, he's gone and taken Punjab's hopes with him 163/7
    19.4 Balaji's got another one! Chawla backs away and lofts a full ball in the air towards long-off where Kapugedera takes an easy catch, Balaji has four, can he take five? 163/8

    19.5 he's got the hat-trick!!! Balaji bowls a short ball outside off stump, VRV backs away and throws his bat at it, the top edge goes straight to Dhoni and the Super Kings mob Balaji! He's thrilled and everyone's gathered around him, amazing scenes and Chennai are roaring on their local lad 163/9
