    18.1 the Sehwag show is over, end of an awesome innings, Faf takes a superb catch at extra cover to send back Sehwag, he had to make a lot of ground to get there, couple of other fielders around as well, but there is no confusion, Faf takes it, a full toss ends that innings, 122 for Sehwag, CSK fielders congratulate him, Sehwag salutes the crowd as he walks off, 211/3
    10.4 the first wicket, at long last for CSK, Raina takes the catch after Vohra top edges a short ball towards midwicket, the ball goes very high and is swirling around. CSK have been superb in the outfield all season, Raina gives another example of that 110/1
    12.6 but Ashwin gets the wicket he had talked up, this looked like a topspinner going straight on, it was well outside off, Maxwell looks to clobber that over cow corner, hasn't hit it far enough though and holes out, Ashwin is pumped, he runs towards Maxwell and blows a flying kiss, Dhoni is not too pleased with Ashwin's reaction 148/2
    19.3 Miller is run-out as he looked to steal a bye after Wridhhiman Saha doesn't connect with an outside-off ball, Miller dives but not in time to beat Dhoni's throw 225/5
    18.6 another wicket for Nehra, Bailey is bowled as he looks to slog that one towards midwicket, that crashes into the base of middle stump, Nehra's final over costs him only 7 and gets two wickets 218/4
    19.6 this time Saha connects, but he can only send the ball as far as the man at deep square leg, the Mohit slower one does the job once more, CSK pull things back slightly in the last few overs, but Sehwag had already done the damage, Kings XI end on 226 226/6

    0.2 gone first ball! Johnson dug that in, and Faf tried to pull from shoulder-height, outside off, and ends up spooning it way up in the air. George Bailey, at mid-on, waits an age before it drops into his hands 1/1
    6.1 a run-out first ball, Raina's masterclass is over, McCullum defends the ball towards cover and sets off for a single, there is hesitation between the batsmen before they decide to go for the single, George Bailey has a pinpoint throw from cover, catches Raina short to end what has been the best innings of the IPL! Bailey is jubilant as are the rest of Kings XI, Bailey is mobbed, Raina is distraught 100/3
    11.6 is that another run-out? Yes, it is, McCullum pushed that towards sweeper cover, was an easy single, a misfield by Maxwell prompts them to go for the second, Maxwell fires in the throw to the keeper, not quite on top of the stumps, couple of yards wide, Saha is superb though, collects the ball and flings down the stumps, McCullum dives but he caught short 140/4
    12.1 and another one, Chennai Super Kings losing their way here, Jadeja wanted to hammer this ball towards long-off, top edges it and it is a low chance for Mitchell Johnson at third man, Johnson does well to scoop that one, Priety Zinta is over the moon 140/5
    12.5 and another one, Awana returns from his 33-run over by taking two wickets in his next, short of length ball, Hussey slugs it straight to midwicket, soft dismissal, all down to Dhoni now 142/6

    16.5 Ashwin is stumped, he was struggling to get a move on here, charged out to try a big shot, he misses and is so far out of the crease that even though Wriddhiman Saha juggled the ball once before taking the bails off, Ashwin had no chance 167/7
