10.6 the arm ball gets him! From round the wicket, this one came back in with the arm. skidded through and hit the stumps, Smith was rooted to the crease, left a big gap 77/2
    3.2 okay forget about the drop! Daredevils make amends for it, McCullum dances down the track to Unadkat and looks to smash it over the on side, ends up getting an outside edge that loops wide of slip and goes to the substitute Parnell at short third man 23/1
    14.4 Raina's caught by his former CSK team-mate, this was a length ball, Raina stayed at the crease and looked to clear long-on, didn't get the distance, Vijay takes the skier well in front of the rope 108/3
    17.2 Vijay's catching the skiers tonight, this was a length ball and Faf made room to clear long-on, he closed the face of the bat as he made contact and hence didn't hit it well enough, Vijay under it at long-on 141/4
    18.4 Agarwal nearly spilled that! Slower ball and short, Dhoni rocked back to pull and it was flat over square leg, Agarwal in the deep ran to his left and grabbed at it, it popped out and he tried taking it in the second attempt and it slipped out again but he managed in the third attempt 156/5
    18.6 Unadkat gets him with the slower ball, it was short and Jadeja swiveled and looked to pull it to fine leg, just shaved the face of the bat on the way to Karthik 162/6
    not out
    19.5 that was a quiet dismissal indeed! Shami fired this full on the stumps and Manhas drilled it down the pitch, Ashwin had set off and had to quickly turn around, Shami back flicked it to the stumps and Ashwin was short, there was barely an appeal and nor did the umpire raise the finger, Ashwin didn't wait and walked off, for a second we didn't know what was going on! 173/7

    2.1 there have been plenty of dropped catches this season, but this time Raina takes a terrific catch, Mayank has flopped, a length ball and Mayank wanted to play that inside-out, bat turns as he plays that and the ball loops towards cover, Raina has some ground to cover, he sprints to his left and pouches that one 8/1
    3.3 Faf du Plessis has pulled off quite a stunner! Vijay looked to clear the straight boundary, it was high in the air and du Plessis was running back from mid-off, the running catches are the toughest, hung on to it and fell backwards 15/2
    12.1 One Chennai boy bowls another, Ashwin was bowling round the wicket, Karthik made a lot of room early on looking to push it to the off side, he may have expected turn but it went straight through and knocked the middle stump 74/6
    4.2 Faf du Plessis is pulling off stunners out of habit tonight! Take a bow! Tiwary made a lot of room and charged down the track looking to clear the off side, unfortunately he made too much room and the ball spooned off the bottom of the bat, du Plessis ran backwards at mid-off and hung on on the dive just as the ball was leaving him, du Plessis covered a lot of ground getting to the ball, amazing stuff 17/3
    8.1 Smith's got the big wicket of Duminy first ball! Pitched on middle and leg, the ball skidded through and went on straight, Duminy was trapped on the back foot and plumb in front 42/4
    9.2 Hilfy gets the line and length spot on this time! The away swinger gets him, swung away from the middle stump, Taylor was compelled to go for the drive, thick outside edge to Dhoni 50/5
    13.5 straight to deep midwicket, Neesham attempts to slog that for a six over deep midwicket, fetches it from outside off, it went flat to Raina, seven down, can Daredevils at least reach 100? 80/7
    15.4 That's the game! Coulter-Nile will not bat, this was tossed up outside off and Nadeem made room to carve that over cover, Raina ran to his right at cover and took the catch easily at the edge of the circle 84/10
    14.2 after two quick deliveries Ashwin tosses this one up ever so slowly, the point was to tempt Shami into going for the big hit and he does just that, played away from the body and he miscued it to McCullum at long-off 82/8
