    3.4 the old one-and-two, this one does not turn, is pitched shorter than the previous one, Vijay instinctively goes back for the cut, but to his horror, it is the arm ball, hurries on with the angle, and bowls him, talk about purchasing wickets in T20, Bishan Bedi would have been proud 18/1
    12.3 Mishra's leg spin did not work last over, but Harmeet's long hop leg break works, short, flat and there to be hammered over the ropes, but Hussey launches in to a tame pull which nicely loops straight to deep square leg, big wicket 78/2
    17.5 this time Suresh goes, skips down the track again, and lifts Ojha with the turn to deep midwicket who runs some steps to his left and holds on comfortably, it is Shikhar 136/3
    19.4 Dhoni looks to do a Raina and slog this one over midwicket, lunges forward and has a huge heave-ho, the ball turns sharply past him, SAnga can't get the bails off in the first attempt, manages to do so on the second try, by that time Dhoni's bat had completed the almighty swing and started to find its way back in to the crease, but after numerous replays, it seems the bails came off just before the bat was grounded, tight call 162/5
    19.1 comes down the track, Ojha, smart bowling, drags it down, Dhoni swings it in to ground towards covers and sets off for the single, Albie is caught well short of his ground by the throw, 19 off 6, and gone, how is that for maximum impact 157/4

    6.5 move aside Misbah, Sohal the conjurer has thought of a unique dismissal, a low full toss pushed through quicker, and what does out man do, he sets himself up for another reverse sweep and as always, gives it his all, the ball dips on him and hits leg stump, between his legs too, just for effect, gone now but it was fun while it lasted, not for chennai though 71/1
    10.6 gets his man this time, reward for some fine bowling in this over, Shikhar went for the big mow over midwicket from way outside off stump, and the ball turned in sharply to strike timber 90/2
    13.2 gone! Chennai are back in it, Morkel cannot do anything wrong today, he bowls one back of a length, he stays in the crease and chips to midwicket who dives to take a neat catch 110/3
    15.5 got 'em, that could be the game, Sanga walks way outside off stump for the pick-up shot over short fine leg, misses the fuller one, and Bollinger hits middle stump 121/4
    18.1 White is gone, finally, could not get going at all, had to go for it now, Albie bowled it full way outside off stump, White went to slam it over long off but mistimed it high in the air, Raina was around running back from extra cover, but du Plessis, the substitute, had it covered, Raina let him know that it was his ball and Faf took an extremely well-judged catch in the end 137/5
    18.6 JP departs, had to go hard at the length ball, there was no choice, did not connect well, Hussey was waiting at long on and took it comfortably, what a comeback from Chennai 143/6
    19.2 it's all over, Christian has to go, Mishra charged and missed, christian wanted the bye, was nowhere in the picture when Dhoni found the stumps 143/7
    19.6 Dougie gets another wicket with the last ball, he makes room and has a swing, but the edge loops tamely back to Bollinger who takes it low to his left 146/8
