    8.1 and he strikes first ball! Smith out for 18 off 24. This was pitched up and swerves in, Smith hangs on the back foot, does not meet with the defensive push, rapped on the back pad in front of middle. The forefinger goes up, both CSK openers back in the hut. 34/2
    5.6 End of a scratchy little knock from Baz, wicket maiden from Zaheer. Baz flits around in the crease, shuffles across off. Zaheer pushes it fuller and outside off, scooped into the hands of JP Duminy at mid-off, takes it in front of his chin. Soft as wax. 16/1
    9.2 Raina picks out short cover. Pushed through on middle at 88ks, Raina comes down the track and chips it straight down the throat of the fielder. Duminy helps himself to another catch. Raina shakes his head as he trudges back 46/3

    15.2 dragged on! Morkel gets rid of Faf. This was on a length and on off, keeps a bit low. Faf seeks to dab it down towards third man, does not get hold of it. He gets an inside edge onto middle and off. Faf goes down on his haunches, he has to drag himself off the field 83/4
    18.1 Dhoni holes out to Nadeem! Fuller length and around off, stops on Dhoni. Change-up. He steps away a bit and mishits it high in the air. Nadeem runs in from long-off and snaffles the take before tumbling onto the ground 110/6
    17.3 Another catch for JP Duminy. Zaheer is in Sandhu's ears. Banged in shortish and hurries on outside off, Bravo wants to slog it away, only manages a thick top-edge to Duminy. Good, overhead catch at mid-off 105/5

    2.3 Qdk finds Ashwin at long leg. Fractionally short on middle, he picks it up from there and plays it straight to the fielder. He could have placed that better... There it is, the early wicket 16/1

    4.1 played on! Fuller and on off at 135ks, keeps alarmingly low. Duminy perhaps seeks to cut and chops it onto the ground. The ball bounces over and rattles off. Too close to play the shot 24/2
    13.2 Mohit makes no mistake now! Yuvraj gone. Pushed through and spins in, he goes low for a slog sweep, does not get hold of it. Mishits it to deep midwicket 93/3
    15.6 Morkel gives it away now. Fuller on a leg-stump line, he backs away, comes down and goes for a big hit. Only slices it off the bottom of the bat to Pandey at long-off 114/4
