4.5 Ashwin strikes in his first over. This was a-coming. Agarwal hasn't really felt in, and two dot balls in a row were asking for an adventurous shot. Agarwal tried to go over mid-off, never quite got close to the pitch of the ball, and ended up skying it. Morkel takes a decent catch running back 31/3
    0.2 out first ball! Soft dismissal really. Full, on the pads, four runs... Not quite, bat face turn a split second too early, and the leading edge goes straight to midwicket 1/1
    1.2 bowled him! Pathan had done so well hitting down the ground so far, but inexplicably, as if under pressure to keep up with modern times, he tries the scoop over the keeper's head, thus moving too far across the stumps, and leaving the stumps prone. top of middle 17/2
    10.5 Smart bowling. Jakati has been targetted by Kohli, but he has gone over the wicket and stifled Kohli. This time he sees the batsman charge at him, and bowls full and outside leg, Kohli gets a top edge as he looks to go over the on side, and Aniruddha runs to his right from long-on to complete the catch 73/4
    18.2 never mind losing the strike, he has lost his wicket. Game, set, match. It was a good inside-out shot, but he just placed it straight down the throat of sweeper-cover. Chennai have two points in the bag 145/7
    14.6 and he seems to have stolen one here! Extra bouncer from Randiv again, pitches just outside leg, beats the flick, and seems to have lobbed off the thigh pad to Dhoni. Umpire Dharmasena, though, agrees with the fielders. Of course I will stand corrected if the replays show otherwise 112/5
    16.4 Pujara plays the pressure shot, jumping out of the crease, toe-ending towards the 30-yard circle, Vijay runs flat out from long-on and makes the catch. He is pumped, Chennai are pumped 127/6
