    0.4 and he's gone now, a four and a wicket! this is a good ball this, it was on the off stump and jags back into the batsman, bit of cut from the wicket and hits him plumb in front of the stumps, was looking to defend at it 4/1
    1.1 bowled him, what's happening here, it was very full on the middle-stump and he was looking to flicking that away to the leg-side, looked akin to that lazy elegance that Rohit Sharma shows while playing his flicks, except there was nothing elegant about missing the ball and seeing the stump flat on the ground, what a start for Chennai... 8/2
    9.3 gone, he's played on, Morris smiles, turns around and salutes towards the dugout, was a a pitched up delivery, angled in slightly, DK went for the drive, thick inside edge did the rest 52/4
    3.2 gone, gone, caught-and-bowled and that's number three for Chennai! short of length and on the middle stump line, he was looking to punch it back, the ball held back a little and it goes back low to Morkel who takes a straight-forward chance to his right, three down without too much on the board 16/3

    15.1 bowled him, middle-stump sent packing! very full and very straight, this was the first ball after the time-out, he was looking to go down and drive it through the covers, sneaks through the bottom of his bat and slaps the middle stump low down 100/5

    17.5 and now he's gone, 'four and out' has happened a lot tonight, and it happens again, it was fuller yet again and he slices it straight to deep cover where Hussey takes a straight-forward catch to send back Harbhajan 125/6
    18.4 and now run-out, Pollard wanted to get back on strike but Dhawan gets run-out in the process, was hit to the leg side and they take a single, the throw is a poor one and beats Dhoni, but the fielder backing up is alert enough to throw it down at the non-striker's end 133/7
    19.1 edged and taken! he was looking to flick it away it but the ball does not angle back into the batsman, straightens slightly and the edge is taken well by Dhoni 135/8
    19.3 and another one bites the dust, four for Bravo, was shorter in length, the batsman was looking to run it through to third-man but gets only an edge through to the keeper 135/9

    0.4 bowled him, what a ball from Malinga! it was a yorker length ball and swinging back into the batsman, probably takes a bit of his pad en route castling his stumps and the batsman is sent back after checking for the no-ball, first blood to Mumbai 2/1
    7.3 top-edged and gone again, Johnson has the last laugh as Vijay's been dismissed now! what are they doing here? it was short alright, but not short enough to play that stroke, was looking to pull away, almost swat it away, gets only an edge and spoons up easily for Rohit to take the catch 39/6
    0.5 and an appeal for caught and yes it is, gone, caught off a short ball! this was a bouncer, quicker one too and on his body, the batsman was looking to fend it off but gets some bat on it, lobs up to the backward square-leg fielder who's inside the circle and Raina's gone for a duck! 2/2
    1.4 edged and gone, three down as Badri's gone now! whoa, what a start for Mumbai, that was a poor shot from the batsman, wide outside the off stump and he was looking to play wide away from his body, gets only a nick through to the keeper 3/3
    5.6 gone, caught, chipped straight to mid-on! that was another slower one and Bravo looked like he had read that one, was looking to flick it away but the ball never came on to the bat, the shot goes straighter than he would have liked, pops up for a simple catch to mid-on 35/4
    6.4 and he's caught at long-off now, poor shot this! was floated up to the bat and the batsman takes the bait, goes to hit it over the top but the fielder was a. on the fence, and b. Kieron Pollard, the combination is good enough to get Jadeja caught! 36/5

    10.6 bowled him, yorked himself there! it was full alright but Morkel was looking to give himself room there, by the time he's got his bat down, the ball's sneaked through and disturbed the stumps, Ojha's gone on a spin like he's gleefully test-driving a new, powerful bike 57/7
    11.3 out, gone, poor shot again and caught behind! it was a wrong 'un there, on a length alright and the batsman was looking to swing it away there, there's some bounce on that one and Karthik takes it well, I am not sure though whether there's an edge on that one, the umpire was quite sure though 58/8
    17.4 gone, out, caught, goes down the track and he's chipped it straight to the short mid-wicket fielder! he was left with no option but to go after the bowling, he jumped down alright but never got any power on that shot and it lobs up gently for the fielder 99/9
