2.5 the running has not been anywhere near solid and it becomes the reason for the first wicket. Hussey hits the length ball down the ground and rushes for a single, but Vijay is not interested and after being more than half way down the track, there was no hope as the man from mid-on lobs the throw in to the keeper 13/1
    5.4 he;s threatened to do it all innings and finally he does it. Sanju Samson hits the target and Vijay is on his way. Vijay pushes this into extra cover and sets off. Raina hesitated midway since the ball was hit strongly and it was very close to the fielder, but seeing Vijay charge down he continued but Vijay still could not make it 33/2
    12.3 straight up in the air and another one goes down. This was outside off and Raina's front stride did not come toward the ball. In the end he only manages to get the bottom of the bat as he looked to flay it over the top of cover. The man comes in from mid-off and takes a straight forward catch 72/7
    8.1 and Tambe strikes! Badri rushes down the pitch, but the bowler hasn't used enough flight to merit that decision. He looks to flay it over the top of cover, but the ball beats him and the keeper doesn't collect it cleanly, but the ball ricochets off his pad and onto the wickets 51/3
    9.2 oh, ho, ho... Shukla does it again! This one was on a good length and seamed away. It was at a pretty nippy pace too as Dhoni was squared up while looking to play the angle into the leg side. But he's struck on the back pad and the Umpire raises the finger 54/4
    10.4 another leg before! Early birthday present for Tambe as Bravo shuffles across and looks to turn this full length ball on middle into the leg side. But with the spinner skidding the ball more than spinning it, it was going to be dangerous and it was. Plumb in front 61/5
    11.6 And the extra ball helps the bowler this time. It was short but there was no room for the cut shot that he was looking to play. The edge is taken and Yagnik secures a simple catch. Super Kings are floundering here 70/6
    not out
    19.4 Another full length ball and Ashwin does what he has been doing all innings, plants his front foot outside leg and muscles over the leg side. But this time his power is not enough as Stuart Binnny comes in from long-on and holds on amid tense circumstances 145/8
