    6.4 Clark gets his fellow late-bloomer. Hussey is gone lbw to a slower ball. Two bones of contention with this, though. Was it pitched inside leg? And it beat Hussey's pull, hitting him over the knee roll but deep inside the crease? Was the height good? It did pitch inside, but it was bouncing over. These umpires have had real trouble judging height. refer to that wide earlier when Starc bowled the slower buncer 55/1
    7.5 Vijay is gone now, he just didn't seem like getting going, charged down the track, was done in the flight, and the ball crashed in the the stumps 67/2
    9.6 Raina falls, that is a huge blow, he lives by the slog sweep and falls by it, top edge flies behind the keeper who goes for it, Clark reaches there as well, there is almost a collision, but in the end the catch is taken 88/3
    10.1 Dhoni departs now, he tried to get underneath a length ball and lift it over long off, only got it as far as the man on the boundary 88/4
    13.1 Chennai are completely out of this now, Bravo tries to go for another six, there is no other option, but he ends up mishitting it in the air and Warner does not return the favours to CSK, he takes the catch cleanly 111/5
    14.4 Clark is smiling broadly, Badri's attempt at that shuffling swing-flick over square leg ends in his middle stumps being pegged back as he misses 119/7
    13.2 Warner has done superbly to run hard to his left from long off to an inside-out lofted shot over extra cover, he gets to the ball and fires in the throw flat to the bowler, Saha's dive is in vain 112/6
    18.1 Kula swings off the middle of the bat, and guess who is waiting at deep midwicket to take the catch, it is the man who is everywhere, it is Warner 151/9
    15.4 another one goes, NSW take another good catch, Ashwin left the crease and lofted down the ground, long on ran forward and to his left, and dived forward to take it 124/8
    18.5 that is the end then, Doug has smashed this full delivery straight back to Starc who is pretty delighted at having grabbed that one, coming as it does off his statemate's bat 155/10
