    5.3 Smith's painful stay comes to an end. He swings blindly again, and is done in by a slower ball. Cleaned up. CSK in trouble. This is a clever slower ball. Not a big dip. Just holds it deep in the hand. A dip of not more than 5ks 33/3

    2.3 and his chancy innings comes to an end. Looks to crash this short ball square, but there is no room, and he has played it on 15/1
    2.5 Has Smith run Raina out?. Another wild slog, hits the inside edge, goes to short third man. Behind square is the non-striker's call, but Smith doesn't respond. And Raina can't beat the direct hit 16/2
    11.1 full toss, Manhas gets a top edge on the half-sweep-half-slog. Deep midwicket takes it easily 56/4

    14.3 and Bravo goes after threatening to give CSK some momentum. This one is bowled from round the stumps, on a length, Bravo looks to open the face. He plays for the turn, but it doesn't turn. Off stump is hit 79/5

    19.3 slower ball, a bit of a half-volley, Dhoni stays deep in the crease and muscles it. Can't beat long-off this time. A sharp head-high catch. Has Dhoni done enough in this burst? 143/6

    2.4 slower short ball, Simmons is early into the pull, and he gets a faint bottom edge, which Dhoni takes well by charging in front of himself 18/1
    12.3 and he gets a wicket straight away. Length ball angling, Voges moves across to try to hit this over midwicket. Beaten, and looks pretty plumb 73/5

    3.6 quicker ball. No turn. Not even short enough to cut. Agar looks to cut, and this one squeezes under the bat to castle him 26/2
    9.4 tries the big sweep, not near the pitch of the ball, Ashwin's extra bounce gets a meaty top edge for an easy catch at deep square leg. And it's not a no-ball this time 53/3
    11.3 he is slightly down the wicket but he has played right across a full ball. Misses it altogether. Hit in front of off. Dharmasena takes his time, and then gives him. Not a great decision. Not only is he down the wicket, he is not even hit in line 68/4
    17.6 quick yorker, goes between Turner and the stumps. Turner wants a bye, is sent back, and Dhoni's underarm flick catches him short 123/6
    18.6 full toss, middle and leg, and he picks out Bravo at long-on. The last piece of resistance goes 131/7

Match Notes

  • Dhoni clears the stadium

    Plays of the Day from the Champions League T20 match between Chennai Super Kings and Perth Scorchers, in Bangalore

  • Super Kings move closer to semifinals with 13-run win

    After a slow start on a slow Bangalore pitch, a late-overs blitz from Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni muscled Chennai Super Kings to what proved an amply defendable target against Perth Scorchers

  • The Chinnaswamy turns yellow

    The Chinnaswamy stadium spent the entire Dolphins-Lahore Lions match waiting to see Chennai Super Kings. But Robbie Frylinck made the wait worthwhile. So did MS Dhoni
