    6.5 what a catch! He is getting to 40 years of age but that is not going to deter him from flinging himself to the leg-side, in front of the non-striker and pulled off a beauty! 56/1
    14.3 Murali has his third wicket! du Plessis was looking good but he knew that the asking rate was getting steeper and this time he goes down the track and holes out to long-on. 128/3
    10.3 Gone! Murali has his second wicket and Raina has holed out to the long-on fielder, who was one of the three fielders on the leg-side, outside the circle. Raina's brief stay ends and Chennai's lost their second. 88/2
    17.6 gone this time, it was a bit of an exhausted helicopter stroke and it went wrong. Caught at long-off. Zaheer has another wicket and the asking rate gets higher. And more improbable. 163/4

    19.2 oh he is out this time! Pitched outside the off-stump and it was fullish, Morkel went for a slash but only managed to give an easy catch to the sweeper fielder. 192/5
