    17.2 Mohit's bowled another batsman with one of those back-of-the-hand slower balls. Finch was done heaving across the line by the time the ball arrived. Middle stump took a beating. Finch goes without finding high gear 109/5
    2.2 he's tried that shot again and he's gone! Dhawan swivelled to pull a short of a length delivery and hit it straight to Mithun Manhas at midwicket. Once again he was cramped for room 15/1
    2.4 a huge appeal for lbw and the umpire gives him out after a while! Hilfenhaus' appeal was long and convincing! That's a shocking decision. The ball pitched short of a length well outside leg stump and struck Warner way too high on the pads too. He tried to force it through midwicket and missed. Warner looks quite bewildered at the decision and has every right to be. He was off his toes when the ball hit the top of his pad. Not out on every count. 15/2
    10.3 he's smashed that, hit it well, but picked out the fielder on the deep midwicket boundary! The ball was short and Rahul pulled hard, the ball flew flat and straight to Ishwar Pandey, who barely had to move to take the catch 67/3
    14.6 driven on the up and straight to mid-off, that's the end of Rao. He made good contact with the shot but did not get enough height on it, the ball traveled flat and dead straight to Dwayne Smith 98/4

    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
