    3.1 it's over for Vijay, a length ball angling into legstump, Vijay choose to stay on the backfoot, he misses while attempting a flick, ball strikes the back pad and that looked out, replays confirm it 25/2
    1.6 third-time unlucky for Hayden, he gets forward to drive, punches it at throat height to Andre Symonds at cover, he doesn't drop many, certainly not simple chances like this, a horror innings from Hayden comes to an end 12/1
    4.5 another massive wicket, Chennai in tatters as Raina falls, a length ball around off, Raina backs away to make room and play it inside-out, gets an outside edge to the keeper, Raina walks even as Gilchrist belts out the appeal 29/3
    18.2 Badrinath is a goner, tries to smash the ball over midwicket, gets an inside-edge towards the keeper, he doesn't realise where the ball is and takes a couple of paces down the track, tries desperately to get back but is caught short by Gilchrist, he slams his bat to the ground in frustration, think he'll have a meeting with the match referee for that 117/6
    13.2 the legcutter does the job for Harmeet again, short of length and pretty wide, Dhoni looks to cut but gets an edge, ends as a simple catch to gully, Deccan are ecstatic 81/4
    14.5 and another wicket, Morkel this time, he seemed to have absolutely bludgeoned that, it was powerful but not high enough to beat Andrew Symonds at the long-on boundary, he takes an overhead catch to put Chennai in more trouble 96/5
    19.4 that's the end of the pyrotechnics from Aniruddha, he was falling away as he tried to club that quick bouncer from Harris, top-edged towards mid-on, easy for Gibbs 137/7

    5.1 Gilchrist's poor tournament continues, a full ball on the pads, Gilchrist backs away and chips it towards midwicket where Anirudha takes a low catch 19/1
    10.5 Gibbs is gone, his struggle is over, he was looking to cut that one, bottom edges it onto the stumps, Jakati has struck 48/4
    5.5 and another wicket gone, Chennai are delighted, Suman makes room and looks to crunch the ball past cover but Raina takes a smart catch to reduce Deccan to 23 for 2 23/2
    7.2 Chennai are delighted as Rohit holes out to long-on, a short of length ball, nothing too threatening, Rohit hits to long-on where Murali pouches it 31/3
    15.2 that's probably the end of the road for Deccan, fired in by Ashwin, Symonds looks to clear midwicket but can only find Vijay there 82/6
    12.1 brain fade from Mishra, skips down the track very early, Jakati pushes it short and wide, Mishra's slog doesn't get close to the ball, Dhoni has the easy job of taking off the bails 54/5
    17.6 Bollinger gets his fourth wicket, a yorker makes a mess of the stumps, Sumanth has to go, great way to finish his spell 103/8
    17.4 Chennai move closer to victory, Harris charges down the track and looks to blast the ball over long-off, can't clear Vijay there, who takes a nonchalant catch in the deep 103/7
    18.1 Deccan collapsing here, Chennai set to make their second final, the quick delivery that turns in just a touch, pitching on off, hitting on middle, bye bye Harmeet 103/9
