    0.1 Praveen again strikes first ball! Lovely inswinger nails Anirudha in front. It's that patent delivery, bolt upright seam, tilting in, wafted up on a full length well outside off and then it curls in viciously. Anirudha got the front foot across for a cover drive and then saw it darting in, and tried to defend, but he was too far across and dead in front. Almost ended up looking like he wasn't playing a shot, that's how far bat was from ball! 0/1
    14.5 Vijay is furious with himself. He has perished in the search for more runs to plunder. He jumps out and makes room to the leg side, Chawla lands it full on the toes and Vijay can't make contact as it beats him and goes through to the keeper. Stumped. 124/3
    0.2 Praveen is on a hat-trick! 121 kph delivery, not much movement, comes in gently on a full length and Raina was too early on the flick. He scooped it straight up to midwicket inside the circle. Dolly. Chennai are reeling. 0/2

    19.6 Punjab began with two superb balls and have finished with another superb ball. Things have gone haywire in the intervening 19.3 overs. Chennai have got the highest score of IPL 2011. Dhoni was looking to find room and width again, Harris gave him none and pinged the base of middle stump with a stunning yorker. Middle peg goes for a walk, and Dhoni trots off with 43 off 20 balls to his name. 188/4

    5.5 Gilchrist has holed out, what a tragedy for Punjab. Not the best ball to get a wicket. Full and angled into the pads, Gilchrist plays that trademark pick-up flick over backward square leg. Randiv was prowling in the deep, ran back and to his right to pouch it. Four years back, Gilly would have slammed that out of Punjab. Times have changed. 61/1
    10.1 gone, Marsh is run out. Typical Twenty20 shambles there. Back of a length outside off, Marsh hangs back and steers through point who is tardy. They take a single and thinks of a second, but Valthaty sends Marsh back but he responds really late. Randiv collects a wide throw and has the presence of mind to under-arm it onto the stumps, Marsh's dive is in vain. 100/2
    13.6 huge wicket for Chennai. Sunny is gone, and they will hope to stop the torrent now. Sunny again bounds out of the crease, but Randiv sees him and lands the floater outside off and gets it to go on. Sunny heaves and gets a big leading edge that is caught at backward point. 136/3
    14.1 he's a goner. Deer in front of the headlights. Did that land outside leg? Seemed unlike it on first viewing. Southee lands this on a length, straight and fast, no yorker, no swing. Nayar tries to play around the pad to the leg side and misses. Struck well in front. Given after a moment of consideration. Chennai are clawing back. 136/4
