    8.1 Bracewell strikes, and the shoulders of these bats are taking a pounding! Well held overhead by Matthew Sinclair at first slip too. Again there is extra bounce from back of a length, and the bat is tamely hanging outside off. The edge and catch duly taken 40/3
    0.6 Big Fish! First ball! Good on ya, Mason! Extra bounce here as he looks to play a little pick-up shot and top-edges to deep square 1/1
    1.4 Sweet As! Bouncer, bouncer, bouncer, and Raina is gone. CD on fire here. It was obvious Raina wasn't going to get anything in his half after that gentle boundary first ball. This one is slightly shorter and it bounces at him, Raina looks to drop his wrists but the ball gets the glove on the way to second slip 5/2

    16.2 gone! Aniruddha has played a gem before getting out. Looks to make room and go over the off side again, but gets a thick edge through to the keeper. Just backed away too far here 113/4

    3.1 gone! This was a-coming. Premeditated shot across the line again, and this is not nearly short enough, the top edge goes into the Durban sky and then down in Raina's safe hands at cover 12/1
    5.5 Ashwin has bowled How! Raina will be relieved. It's only fitting that - like Raina - Ashwin paused in his delivery stride and bowled this straighter one, and How aborted an attacking shot and defended, played for the offbreak. The off stump, I am afraid, needs repairing here 35/3
    4.4 another ill-advised pull shot! They are pulling themselves into a lot of trouble here. Again this is not short enough, and he skies it towards mid-on, where Murali takes a safe catch 22/2
    7.3 and what a catch from Haydos! This is reverse-swept, and well connected, mind you, but straight into the buckets that belong to Hayden, at first slip. Great anticipation too, moving to his right as he sees Sinclair shaping up for the reverse shot 36/4
    7.5 and that's No. 2 for Murali in his first over! Flat again, but slightly wider, drawing him into the shot, the batsman opens the face, gets a thin edge that Dhoni accepts. He is walking away. CSK all over CD 36/5
    16.2 what I can verify is that Bollinger has got a wicket here! Griggs backs away, looking to upper-cut, but all he manages is a soft edge that settles with Dhoni 82/7
    10.3 Dhoni is keeping well all right! Smart stumping there as Ashwin draws Diamanti outside the crease and also beats his outside edge. This was a traditional arm ball that held its line 44/6
    17.2 he is bowling a thala here - big boss, in Tamil. Straight ball, clears front leg and slogs, and plays it on to the stumps 84/8

    17.6 Mason couldn't build a long innings here, though! Went for another big shot, across the line, and it flies off the back of the bat, to third man 94/9
    18.1 and he is the last man out too! Early finish here as Mitchell McClenaghan pokes away from the body, getting a thick edge. Hayden at wide slip flies to his lift to pouch this. Comprehensive win for Chennai 94/10
