    16.2 one slog too many for Smith and he has to walk back dismissed off a full toss. Sought the wide yorker again but it ends up a lovely delivery to be smacked over the covers but Smith swing across the line and got a leading edge which is taken by Bailey in the covers 161/2
    12.4 pushed through on middle and leg as he rocks back and goes for an almighty pull. Hasn't connected it properly and Maxi at deep midwicket takes a tumbling catch to break Chennai's seventh century opening partnership 123/1
    18.4 scooped it straight into the hands of Sehwag at short fine leg. It was the offcutter which did not allow Raina the pace he wanted. Walked right across his stumps to manufacture a big shot and perishes 185/3
    19.6 holes out at long-off and Chennai finish at 205. Another full toss outside off but Dhoni can't get the meaty part of the bat on this. Lofts it down the throat of Rishi Dhawan 205/4

    3.4 it's given! That's a pretty tight call from the ump and Pujara walks back looking a little bemused. It pitched in line and went on with the arm as he went for a sweep. Struck low on the front pad and it might just have grazed off stump. 38/2

    2.6 leg stump cartwheels! It was length and he was looking to slog it across the line seeking the stands at midwicket. Missed it by several inches as the ball sneaks between the bat and pad. Nehra exults! 31/1

    15.4 what a yorker! Leg stump has been uprooted. There was no room to manoevre it, which was what Maxi was trying to do with a bit of an open face but the ball just kept coming in at him and cramping him up. He also seemed a little surprised by the extra pace on that and walks off the field with his bat raised. He's missed a personal landmark, but has placed his team in a very good position 167/4
    5.1 trapped in the crease and Akshar has to trudge back. No doubt about this one. This came on with the arm and struck him on the back pad as he was looking to clip to midwicket. The ball skids on and he's a goner 52/3
