    17.2 Chawla has his number this time! Draws him out of the track, with a leggie tossed up wide of the batsman, Patel misses the attempted drive and Sanga's got the bails off before you could say Parthiv. Huge wicket. Chennai are making rough weather of this chase. 121/5
    8.4 nifty bit of bowling from Powar! Foxes him with some classical offspin here. Hayden's down the track again, but announces his intentions a moment too soon, Powar sees him, pulls it back a little, defeats him in the flight and beats the attempted swipe to hit the stumps. Great work, big wicket. 65/1
    12.3 Theron's showed some really smart footwork here and Raina is run out!. Short of a length, and Patel looked to pull, got no timing and it bobbled down the pitch as they took off for a quick single. Theron ran down the pitch and kicked the ball with his right foot on to the stumps and Raina is caught inches short. 96/2
    12.6 and he's got two for the over! Theron's persisted with that line through the over and Vijay has not come forward even once. This time, it catches him on the crease, and it may have been sliding down the leg, but not in umpire Harper's book. 97/3
    13.6 gotcha! Chennai are crumbling and the crowd is in a lull now. Yuvraj's struck another blow, short and cramping Badri for room, he went for the cut and got a faint edge. Sanga put it down the first time, but regained in time before it touched the turf. Punjab have a sniff here. 104/4
    not out
    18.4 stumps everywhere! Theron has bowled with zest today and this was probably his best. Fast, length ball targetting middle, challenging Gony to try and find the fence. Gony obliged, and missed the ball, and CLATTER! Chennai are choking big time, it's all down to Morkel. 127/6
    19.6 Ashwin's gone! Fasten your seatbelts folks, we have a super over coming up! Pressure has taken its toll! Pathan keeps it slow and steady, on a length, Ashwin swings it away ram-rod straight to mid off, where Kaif takes the dolly. Punjab are ecstatic! 136/7
