    15.3 slower this time and du Plessis has spooned it up in the air on the leg-side, the fielder at the deep square-leg comes in and judges it really well. 116/1
    15.5 tries to slog sweep it away, lofts it in the air and the ball finds the same fielder as before, Badri is gone and Chennai are suddenly two down. 116/2
    16.3 short ball to Raina and he continues to get out to bouncers! This time though he had no option but to go after the pull and the top-edge carries to Kartik at fine-leg and they have lost their third. 119/3

    1.2 gone, caught! Dhoni came up, Robin remained in the crease, still tried to go over the top, did not get it in the middle of the bat and it lobbed up behind the bowler, Ashwin rushed in from mid-off to take a very good catch. 13/1
    3.4 short, pull, caught and dance! It was not pitched up by Nuwan, Ryder went for the pull, Bravo dived in front of him and then began a jig that would have brought a smile to everyone watching! 26/2
    9.4 out, caught! Ganguly wanted to go down the track and Jakati seemed to have read that, bowled it a little short, Ganguly still went for it but only lobbed straight up and Kulasekara at mid-off took a good catch. 64/4
    6.1 out, caught and a good one too! Pitched right up to the bat, Pandey wanted to go over the extra-cover, the ball ballooned up but Badri needed to run a fair distance to get to the ball and he did that, caught it and held on to it even as he was falling away. Excellent catch. 53/3
    13.2 gone, caught! flighted, slower one and Samuels looked in an aggressive frame of mind, went for a smashing drive, but it goes straight to the fielder at short cover. 97/5
    18.2 gone, caught! Pitched right up to the bat and Smith goes for the big one, gets a lot of height and du Plessis balances himself well at long-on and catches it rather well! 141/6

    19.1 full-toss, leg-side and that should have been flicked away to the leg-side for a four. The fine-leg was inside the ring, but Mathews seemed surprised by that delivery and misses getting any bat on it, the leg-stump lies flat on the ground. 144/7
