    0.2 the highest scorer in t20 is gone! short ball, pulled away in the air, and one of the tallest men of the field, R Ashwin, times him jump to a nicety and off goes Hodge 0/1
    1.3 bowled him! Gony has come right back, with an in-coming delivery. Tiwary hits through its line, but the ball moves in and takes the inside edge onto the middle stump. Chennai right on top 8/2
    8.1 Eden is quiet! length ball, Ganguly looks to go over mid-on, who is up in the circle, but the ball doesn't quite come on, and he ends up dragging it to deep midwicket, where Morkel takes a smart catch 55/5
    4.6 bye bye middle stump! Balaji finishes off what Gony started! Heaves at one again, and plays around a straight delivery 34/3
    6.2 big big wicket! Shah was looking in prime touch. Superb ball, back of a length, lands on the seam, holds its line, and takes the hanging bat's edge, neatly taken by Dhoni too, to his right 46/4
    10.2 it's all over for Kolkata - barring a miracle. Mathews looks for the scoop, misses, and is this time hit inside the line. Dead duck if ever there was one 69/6
    13.2 sweeps right down the throat of Albie Morkel at deep backward square leg, and Chennai two good balls away from a win here 82/8
    12.3 and one more gone! Gavaskar pulls, not that shot perhaps, and the top edge is a pretty healthy one that makes it to the fine leg boundary, where Vijay takes it safely 79/7
    14.1 Bond takes a big swipe down the ground, misses by a long away, and the off stump is struck 84/9
    19.2 and how it finishes! Karthik is strolling through for a single to point, and Badri hits the only visible stump direct. Karthik knew he wouldn't have made it 109/10
