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
