Champions League Twenty20 - 13th match, Group A

Chennai Super Kings v Victoria

Match tied (Victoria won the one-over eliminator)

5.1

McKay to Hussey, 1 run, McKay starts with a slower ball, legcutter that Vijay pushed at early, just about gets some bat on it

5.2

McKay to Vijay, SIX, short of length delivery, Vijay plays his favourite lofted drive to long-on, that looked to have landed just short of the rope but the umpire signals a six

5.3

McKay to Vijay, 1 run, Vijay drops it with soft hands towards the off side and pinches a single

5.4

McKay to Hussey, 1 run, full and on his pads, whipped away to square leg for a single

5.5

McKay to Vijay, 1 leg bye, McKay sends down another of his trademark slower ball, Vijay is tricked by that one, off the pads and dribbles to the keeper, Hussey scampers through for the single, Vijay responds late but he makes it safely

5.6

McKay to Hussey, 2 runs, short ball this time, Hussey shovels it to midwicket, there's a man in the deep for that shot, he keeps the batsmen to two

Chennai Super Kings 37/0   CJ McKay 1-0-11-0

7.1

McKay to Vijay, 1 run, a length ball, a controlled drive from Vijay sends the ball towards long-on for a single

7.2

McKay to Hussey, 1 run, on the pads, fine leg was in the ring, Hussey doesn't capitalise, he can only send that one to short fine

7.3

McKay to Vijay, 1 wide, another ball down the leg side, Vijay looks to glance it fine, no contact

7.3

McKay to Vijay, 1 run, back of length outside off, Vijay nearly gets it past short third as he did in the previous over, Hastings dives to his right to block it though

7.4

McKay to Hussey, 2 runs, Hussey swipes it towards midwicket and the batsmen zip through for two

7.5

McKay to Hussey, 1 run, on the pads again, Hussey again misses out on a boundary, Hodge throws himself to his right at short fine to field that one and save three deliveries

7.6

McKay to Vijay, 1 run, slower ball from McKay, Vijay was looking to drive that one, but gets it towards short fine instead

Chennai Super Kings 54/0   CJ McKay 2-0-19-0

13.1

McKay to Raina, OUT, Slower ball death for Raina! Clint is the man when it comes to these slower balls, there is no chance in hell for a batsman to pick it off his hand, it is that well disguised. Raina did not pick this, he had backed away, and was looking to launch over the off side, it came too slowly and took the inside edge and crashed into the castle

SK Raina b McKay 10 (14m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

13.2

McKay to Dhoni, 1 run, yorker on Dhoni's leg stump, he digs it down to long on for one

13.3

McKay to Vijay, SIX, Veeejay!!! Length on the leg stump, Vijay sees it early and gets under it. The wrists do the rest and it lands over wide long on. What timing!

13.4

McKay to Vijay, 2 runs, short and wide outside off, Vijay thinks everything must go! Tries to upper-cut, and gets it high over the off side cordon for a couple

13.5

McKay to Vijay, 1 run, another one of Clint's slower balls. 109 kph, but Vijay is picking them. Waits and works it off the pads for a single

13.6

McKay to Dhoni, no run, Ha! Cullinan was not flummoxed by Warne the way Dhoni was fooled by that slower one! Back of the hand, back of a length, 105 kph outside off. Dhoni stays in the crease and waits and waits, and plays all over it. He should have waited some more, he might have even made contact.

Chennai Super Kings 104/2   CJ McKay 3-0-29-1

17.1

McKay to Dhoni, 1 run, now the McKay type of slower ball, full and outside off. Dhoni is looking skywards when he makes contact. A whimper of an edge, runs to the keeper and they pinch a single

17.2

McKay to Anirudha, OUT, slow death for Chennai in the death overs! Another one of those no-pace, no-nothing on them kind of slower ball, Anirudha closes the face eons early and gets a top-edge that bubbles up and Wade runs in from behind and takes it on the tumble, next to the crease

S Anirudha c †Wade b McKay 2 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

17.3

McKay to Dhoni, no run, and again. This one has no pace and does not bounce either. Dhoni misses by a mile

17.4

McKay to Dhoni, 1 run, fuller on middle and off, he punches it out to long off for a single

17.5

McKay to Kemp, 1 run, 107 kph, I bet Kumble's regulation legspinner is at times faster than that! Kemp taps it to the off side and gets going

17.6

McKay to Dhoni, 1 run, Dhoni gets behind this and tries to pack a punch, but still can't time the heave to the leg side. Single to deep square leg. Great stuff from Victoria!
