    3.1 gets him here! full ball here, just outside off, he goes for the pull but can only manage an inside edge onto the leg stump, that was too full to pull, he appeared to have pre-meditated that shot but Gony was quick there too, first strike 19/1
    6.1 strikes first ball, full and wide, the plan has worked, he's slashed straight to point and Raina has gobbled that up, it was pretty clear that they were planning a wide line to him and Albie has struck off his first ball, Chennai are on a high 41/2
    6.4 that's another! this is a wonderful piece of inspiration from Ntini, gets the direct hit and Akmal has to go, pushes to mid-on and they take off, that was pretty suicidal, Ntini swoops down and flings one in, smashes the stumps and Akmal is short, no need to refer that to the third umpire as well 42/3
    14.1 bowled him! Watson comes down the track to Murali but yorks himself by getting too close to the ball, the ball squeezes under the bat and hits leg stump, this is a huge wicket and Murali's broken through the pair of Rajasthan's most dangerous batsmen 107/4
    17.4 Raina you beauty! A direct hit runs out Yusuf! Warne pushed the full ball firmly to point and set off for the single, Yusuf responded and ran at top speed, Raina collected cleanly, he had one stump to aim at and he threw it down with supreme precision, Yusuf was yards out 143/7
    16.6 caught! Another twist! Kaif steps out of his crease, Murali bowls the flat doosra and Kaif prods tamely at the ball, it hits the splice of the bat and goes straight to Dhoni at cover, simple catch 139/5
    17.1 what has he done? Jadeja backs away towards leg stump and tries to pull a short ball, the delivery hurries on to him and he mis-hits it tamely towards mid-on where Kapugedera runs to his left and takes a simple catch, that was an immature shot 139/6
