    15.3 caught at long-off! Warner comes charging in and tumbles after holding a well-judged catch on the run. It was a low full toss and Smith didn't hit it as cleanly as he has been doing all evening. He's all but won CSK the game though 126/3
    10.5 bowled him! The length was too full to cut, the line was too straight to cut, it was the googly too. McCullum went back in a flash but was beaten. The ball hit off and middle stump 85/1
    13.6 caught on the sweeper boundary. Raina charges and aims to hit straight but ends up slicing a length ball to Rao. An easy catch. Ishant's front foot is fine too. 114/2

    15.5 caught behind! Faf's gone first ball. He tries to drive away from his body at a good length delivery that seams away. A healthy edge that carries comfortably to the keeper Rahul 127/4
    18.3 he's been bowled! The length was a bit too full to stay back to. The line was too straight to try and steer towards point. There was a gap between bat and pad and Ishant went straight through it to hit middle stump. the ball actually nipped back into the left-hander, grazed the thigh and then hit the stumps 138/5
