    4.5 run out, flighted outside off, drew him out of the crease, drove it to Yuvraj at mid-off and set off for the single, dived full length forward to make it but the Punjab captain scored a direct hit at the non-striker's end, replays show he was short 40/1

    6.5 trying to be a little too cheeky there, was too close to cut, a quicker one off the arm on middle, made room to chop it down, but instead dragged it onto the stumps, perhaps his only lapse, but costs him his wicket 54/2
    13.3 the pressure was on with the boundaries not coming, and Raina has snapped. Bowled short outside off, made room to cart that over point, got a thick outside edge straight to Lee at short third, Punjab are chipping away here, it was the offcutter 87/5
    9.3 a wicket at the stroke of the timeout, now how many times has that happened? Short on the off, goes for the pull in an attempt to clear midwicket, it gets onto him a little too quickly and he lobs a dolly to Irfan at mid-on 68/3
    9.5 superb yorker!! Dhoni was totally done in by the inswinger, bowled in the high 140's, he was surprised by the pace, failed to bring his bat down in time and the offstump was pegged back. Punjab have the advantage now 70/4
    17.4 Oram goes! Length ball and he was tempted, took his left foot out to smack that over the bowler's head, ended up slicing it really high and Irfan waited ages for it to come down before snapping it in his palms over his head 105/7
    14.4 went after one too many, gave it some air, but held it back, bowled it short on middle, Gony rocked back to go for the pull, missed as the ball spun away to clip his pad and crash into offstump 96/6
    17.6 he's gone now, good length outside off, makes room to clear extra cover but mistimes it completely, Pomersbach runs back a couple of steps to take a dolly 109/8
    19.4 run out, aiming for the yorker, landed full on the off, tried to drag it over midwicket, mistimed it wide of deep square leg, an accurate throw at the striker's end and Sangakkara clipped the bails to find Thushara just short, another one down 114/9

    1.5 he's gone, bowled short on leg stump at 130.2 kmph 6/1
    6.5 are we in for another close one here? He's bowled him round his legs, bowled quickish and short outside leg, walked across to work it fine but had left a wide gap, missed, and the leg stump was uprooted 32/2
    11.1 what a timely wicket, flighted on middle, gave it air this time, and got it to spin away sharply just as Pomersbach was sucked into the drive, got a thick edge straight to Raina at slip 45/3
    12.4 is that the decisive blow? Bowled short on middle, Yuvraj made room to bunt it through the off side, it kept a little low and he missed it completely to watch his legstump pegged back 49/4
    15.1 uses his height so pluck it over his head, Punjab are on the mat now, tossed up on middle, Sanga came down the track and tried to chip it over the bowler but Ashwin's a tall man, intercepted it with a perfectly-timed leap to get his hands around it 59/5
    15.3 he's trapped him in front, floated it full and he was tempted into playing the sweep, tried to play it square but was rapped on the pads, replays indicate it would have clipped leg stump 60/6
    18.5 the end is near, full toss again, one of many this over, fails to clear long-off, strikes it straight to Oram who cups it comfortably 83/8
    16.5 Punjab are sliding now, short on middle, struck it hard but failed to get the desired elevation, landed safe in the hands of Oram at long-on, he doesn't drop it this time, as he had in the last game, Chennai have it all wrapped up now 67/7
