    3.2 Chennai are all over Kolkata here! Bollinger had set this up the previous ball with the bouncer, this time he slips in the pacy full delivery aimed at Dada's pads. It strikes him flush, but outside leg stump. Umpire Hazare thinks it is out, and Chepauk does not mind, but that was a poor call. 17/3
    2.2 and Ashwin strikes right back! Gayle was coming down the track this time, Ashwin held it back, and Gayle could not get to the pitch as it turned away. Dhoni does the rest! Got him with a beautiful bit of flight 17/1
    2.6 Ashwin is on fire! McCullum's not read him well this over, and was desperate to get him away. When in doubt, McCullum sweeps or scoops, it was the sweep this time, the top edge looked like it will fall behind short fine leg, but Muralitharan had other plans! Nice tumbling catch, Chepauk roars! 17/2
    14.4 Murali Vijay has taken a really good catch! Tiwary got under this flighted delivery from Raina and sent it high into the Chennai night-sky, and when it came down, metres in front of the long on fence, Vijay was there, running back a long way and taking it well. 92/5
    4 Ashwin's got another one, what a spell this is! Looped on leg stump, turning down the leg, and Hussey was drawn out, could not make contact and over-balanced. Dhoni took the bails off before one could have said "Wide"! 19/4
    19.3 pyrrhic victory for Murali! Mathews has swept the carpet from under hit feet today, but this time he sweeps to his demise, top edge loops up and Hayden is again under a swirler. Good innings comes to an end. 133/8
    15.5 Gone! Saha played it off the face off the bat, he wanted to go very fine and it went too fine for his liking, into Dhoni's right leg. He regained quickly and broke the stumps with Saha desperately trying to get back in. 96/6
    18.2 Gone! Short of a length outside off, Shukla went for a 360 degree pull, and would have been happy if it went anywhere, but not high. That's where the top edge went, Hayden was under it and took it easy at cover. Shukla has done his job though. 123/7
