Champions League Twenty20 - 9th match, Group A

Chennai Super Kings v Wayamba

Chennai Super Kings won by 97 runs

5.28pm: Ok the Chennai openers have made their way out. M Vijay and Matthew Hayden, who was out for a duck in the previous game. Isuru Udana has the ball, a left-arm seamer. A slip in place.

Ashish: "Today's special player Srikanth Anirudha, you can see on mouse over." Yes, you see it's not really a technical problem.

Hanson sends us our first feedback of the day and he doesn't sound too keen. We've been plagued with an endless series of India-Sri Lanka contests in recent months and this one, to him, is no different. "Another Srilanka- India match...." Come of think of it...

5.20pm: This game's being played in Centurion but do check out Sriram Veera's account of his trip to Port Elizabeth and the country's oldest Test ground - St George's Park.

5.00pm Time for the toss. Dhoni reckons it's difficult to defend scores in Centurion, given what transpired moments earlier. Mubarak calls and does so correctly. Wayamba are fielding. Chennai have retained the same XI that beat Central Districts. Two changes for Wayamba - Isuru Udana comes in, so does Shalika Karunanayake. Both are pace allrounders. There's no Farveez Maharoof or Mahela Udawatte.

4.57pm We're still a few minutes from the toss. Here's the preview for this match.

4.55pm local time Hello and welcome, folks, to an all-Asian encounter in Centurion, between Chennai Super Kings and Wayamba. The team from Sri Lanka was upstaged by the Warriors while the IPL title-winners completed a clinical win in their opening fixture against Central Districts, who've just been beaten by Victoria. I'm Sid Talya and I'll be joined by Nitin Sundar soon - he's stamping out the bulletin for the game that's just concluded.

7.2

NLTC Perera to Vijay, 1 run, shortish on middle, knocks it down in the leg side off the back foot

11.6

Karunanayake to Raina, 1 run, again, he's looking menacing here.. hit it earlier, and in front of square, one bounce and at the rate of knots to the fielder at cow corner

Nadeem supports Chennai.. or maybe Australia.. "Anything in YELLOW rules the cricketing world: Australia, CSK. :)"

Herath to Vijay, 1 run, Vijay moves away to the leg side, shows Herath all his stumps, but easily drives with the spin to long off for one more

12.6

Herath to Raina, 2 runs, the wheels are coming off Wayamba here.. Length ball, tossed up on off stump and Raina flexes his muscle, goes down on a knee and lofts down the ground. The timing is awry, it bounces well in front as Kulatunga at long off comes across to clean up. And over-runs the ball.. and it nearly runs away and touches the fence.. Pulled in just in time though

End of over 13 (8 runs) Chennai Super Kings 120/1 (RR: 9.23)
SK Raina    44* (27b 4x4 2x6)      HMRKB Herath    0.1-0-15-0

Sridhar joins in on the yellow fever: "BCCI knows how to make money. If anyone is listening to this, then there will be bidding for color of dress as well in next IPL season ;-)". Ram: "Maybe Federer should start wearing yellow..."

Welegedara comes on.

15.1

Welegedara to Raina, 1 run, yorker on middle and leg at 131 kph, Raina is looking to bash everything, but this was a good ball.. Under-edged towards midwicket for one

15.2

Welegedara to Vijay, 1 run, back of a length outside off, Vijay stays back and tonks it down to long off, airy shot for one

15.3

Welegedara to Raina, FOUR, Ah! Welegedara misses the yorker by a foot, and it is enough for Raina to get under and heave through midwicket. The fielder there dived over the ball, not helping Wayamba's cause

15.4

Welegedara to Raina, 1 run, stays in the crease and drives it down the ground for one

Stand is worth 99 off 62 balls.

15.5

Welegedara to Vijay, 1 run, Vijay brings the 100 run stand with another single down the ground. Good lengths from Welegedara, most of the time.

15.6

15.6

Welegedara to Vijay, 2 runs, the free-hit is a low full toss on middle and off, Vijay can't quite make contact with that bread-and-butter pull-swing of his. Gets it down to long on for a couple, Raina hares back easily

M Vijay    63* (43b 8x4 1x6)      UWMBCA Welegedara    2-0-31-0
SK Raina    59* (37b 6x4 2x6)      HMRKB Herath    2-0-21-0

Sekhar gets poetic: "RCB is one team that will definitely not opt for yellow. For them "Yellow yellow dirty fellow, white white Cameron White" Mendis comes on.

16.1

Mendis to Raina, SIX, Seeya later Ajantha! Has no business bowling a half-tracker, Raina seems to say as he stays in the crease and muscles it over cow corner. Bham!

16.2

Mendis to Raina, 2 runs, goes straight this time, whacks it down the ground, reasonably well-timed but long off tags it

16.3

Mendis to Raina, SIX, He's hitting them if they are short, he is hitting them if they are full! mendis lands this on a length, Raina chips out, gets to the pitch and tees off, up, up and away over midwicket.. Did not hit this as high as the last one, he did not have to

16.4

Mendis to Raina, SIX, 666, Raina is Mendis' devil! Full-toss is the only ball he hadn't yet tried, so can't fault Mendis for trying it.. Raina had no problems though, carting it in the same direction

16.5

Mendis to Raina, 2 runs, can't quite get the elevation this time, couple of bounces to deep midwicket. Insult to injury - Mendis misses the throw to the bowler's end. He could have run Vijay out

16.6

Mendis to Raina, SIX, Maul, Maul, Maul and now the biggest of them All! Raina sets himself up early for the mow and Mendis meekly lands it in the hitting area. One smooth swing of the arms and it lands somewhere near Jo'burg

End of over 17 (28 runs) Chennai Super Kings 175/1 (RR: 10.29)
SK Raina    87* (43b 6x4 6x6)      BAW Mendis    4-0-45-1
M Vijay    63* (43b 8x4 1x6)      UWMBCA Welegedara    2-0-31-0

17.1

Welegedara to Vijay, FOUR, Oh my! Vijay opens up the off side and looks for the backfoot cover drive. He gets a thickish outside edge and it scurries to the left of short third man

17.2

Welegedara to Vijay, 1 run, timed well, this time through midwicket, but on the bounce to wide long on

17.3

Welegedara to Raina, OUT, and Raina's carnage comes to an end. Wayamba will heave a collective sigh of relief here, coz he was headed for a CLT20 ton to go with his World T20 ton. Length ball on off stump, he moved away to leg side and looked to go up and over Mubarak and cover... did not quite get the height though and Mubarak leapt high inside the circle to haul it in. What an innings!

SK Raina c Mubarak b Welegedara 87 (54m 44b 6x4 6x6) SR: 197.72

17.4

Welegedara to Vijay, OUT, the lull after the storm! Vijay follows next ball, it is on a length outside off, Vijay has been trying to play from the crease and again tries to go in the air over the off side. He was in no position for that shot, but can't blame him for trying. Most of them have come off today.. Tame catch for long off

M Vijay c NLTC Perera b Welegedara 68 (79m 46b 9x4 1x6) SR: 147.82

KM: "I demand censorship for this kind of material. Systematic annihilation of bowlers.. " Your prayers are answered somewhat.

17.5

Welegedara to Morkel, FOUR, That's the way to deal with a hat-trick ball! Albie Morker gets a length ball outside off.. seriously, where are the yorkers?!... He plays a nice little cover drive, birecting the infield, and enough to defeat the dive from the long off fielder running across

17.6

Welegedara to Morkel, 2 runs, squeezes out a yorker (Finally!) outside off but still manages to get a couple behind square on the off side

End of over 18 (11 runs) Chennai Super Kings 186/3 (RR: 10.33)

MS Dhoni    0* (0b)      BAW Mendis    4-0-45-1

18.1

Udana to Dhoni, no run, full and angling away frpom Dhoni, who misses the back foot.. carve? Defining the shots Dhoni plays is not the easiest thing, is it?

Apologies for the error earlier. As some of you have pointed out, Raina does not have an IPL ton. My bad.

18.2

Udana to Dhoni, 2 runs, back of a length outside off, and Dhoni goes for that helicopter scythe through the off side.. High and lands safe near third man

18.3

Udana to Dhoni, no run, good old, cross-batted swing across the line and he makes no contact

18.4

Udana to Dhoni, 2 runs, another shot from the Dhoni book of inexplicable batting.. Full outside off, he flicks the wrists and sends it flying towards the cover fence where it is fielded brilliantly

18.5

Udana to Dhoni, FOUR, and another! Same shot, gets a thickish outside edge and it runs down to the third man fence.

18.6

194. Can they get 200? Welegedara to finish. Highest score of the tourney already.

19.1

Welegedara to Morkel, 1 run, over-pitched outside off, Morkel wants it closer to the body though.. Can only drag it down to long on for one

19.2

Welegedara to Dhoni, 1 run, good ball, almost a perfect yorker on Dhoni's off stump and he drives it on the run into the covers for one

19.3

Welegedara to Morkel, 1 run, smart thinking, he is keeping it wide outside Morkel's length, denying him the shovel scoops to the leg side. Again, dragged out to long on. Wayamba are doing well here. Could have been a lot worse

19.4

Welegedara to Dhoni, 1 run, another yorker on middle, Dhoni plays around it and gets some edge on it towards cover point

19.5

Welegedara to Morkel, 1 run, back of a length outside off, Morkel flat bats and gets no timing on it.. It dribbles down to wide long off.

Las ball. 199..

19.6

Welegedara to Dhoni, 1 bye, CSK raise 200 in the cheekiest fashion. Dhoni misses the yorker outside off and it goes straight to the keeper. They were running for the bye, but the under-arm to the striker's end missed.. and Dhoni made it to the bowler's end quickly once he realised Morkel was safe.

Some serious hitting there from Chennai. If Hayden had batted the way he can, and if Dhoni and Morkel finished the way they can, it could have been a lot worse, and that underlines just how well Raina and Vijay batted. Sid Talya will bring you the chase in a bit.
