    8.1 Oh well, Smith is in trouble, gone by a long way. SRH have a wicket at long last, via a direct hit. Dibbly-dobbler on off, Baz waits on it before before chopping it down to short third. He takes off for a single, Smith is late to respond. He is not the best of runners between the wickets either. Boult (I guess) nails a direct hit to signal the doom of Smith. Fine, flat throw 75/1

    13.3 Raina walks off. Sharp work from KL Rahul at point, he had only one stump to aim at it and he lasers a direct hit. Back of a length and outside off as Raina takes a step out and punches it to point. He drifts off for a single, but is sent back. He pulls off a desperate dive,it ends in vain. Rahul moved to his right, dived and grabbed the ball even as it swerved away. He lost his balance but managed to hit the bullseye 135/2
    19.2 Dhoni picks out cover now. The CSK captain has done all the damage though. Good catch from Warner, for it was travelling at the rate of knots. Too full and outside off, Dhoni flays a drive. Warner hops up and cover and takes it around chest-height. Ouch, that must sting. 198/3
    19.3 Boult takes an aim at the stumps, hits and catches Jaddu short. Baz is back on strike, though. Yorker, which is squirted back to the bowler. Baz sets off, Jaddu scarifies himself for the cause. Lightning throw from Boult 198/4

    14.5 Warner has holed out to deep midwicket, Smith leaps near the boundary and completes a sharp catch. Short and on the leg stump as Warner backs away and Ishwar follows him. Warner got a good chunk of wood on the pull, but came second to Smith. Well, this means that Williamson will have a bat after all 114/4
    3.4 Mohit strikes! The slower ball works for Mohit. Too full and wide outside off, Dhawan, perhaps, looks to loft-drive it over the infield. But ends up slicing it to Jaddu at backward point. Undone by the slow off-cutter 30/1
    5.6 Mohit is pretty good with these slippery back-of-the-hand slower ones. This consumes Rahul. He aims to swipe it away to the leg side. He does not lay bat onto it, Mohit hits the stumps. Deflected off the pads and onto the stumps 46/2
    11.3 The pressure gets the better of Ojha. This was a top spinner from Ashwin - not the offbreak. Ojha runs down the track but mis-hits the lofted stroke, holes out to long-off. Mohit follows the ball, watches it all along and pouches it safely 91/3

    16.4 Yorker from Bravo, defeats Bopara. He breaks into a jig - not sure if that's the 'Chaka Chaka dance' but nice moves, man. Fired in, Bopara can't dig it out, it slides under his bat to cannon into middle. It gets knocked back. 136/5

    18.6 Raina completes a brilliant catch and Dhoni applauds, he now tops the list of match catches in the IPL. Most runs, most catches, Mr.IPL. Slower length ball on middle, Karn steps away a touch and slices it in the air. Raina runs to his right from long-off dives, tumbles and plucks it. Bravo has his hands aloft in joy 150/6
