Kumar to Hussey, no run, away swinger to start, starts from leg and curls away. Hussey defends from the crease


Kumar to Hussey, no run, another one, starts from middle and goes away, Hussey shoulders arms this time


Kumar to Hussey, 1 run, this time he strays on the pads and Hussey gets something on it and nudges behind square for one on the leg side


Kumar to Hussey, no run, nice shape from Praveen here, Hussey stays watchfully in the crease and plays it with the movement into the covers


Kumar to Hussey, no run, and some extra bounce to boot, this one rises nicely from middle and off, Hussey lets it go again.

Chennai Super Kings 2/0   MEK Hussey 1* (5b)

Vinay Kumar to Hussey, no run, Hussey looks to steal a single in the point region, but Vijay wisely sends him back as Kohli converges on the soft defensive shot


Vinay Kumar to Hussey, 1 run, angles across and Hussey gets it behind square this time for a single to third man

Chennai Super Kings 6/0   MEK Hussey 2* (7b)

Kumar to Hussey, 1 run, more away movement for Praveen, Hussey square cuts it gingerly to the deep point fielder for one


Kumar to Hussey, 1 run, Praveen fumbles and loses the opportunity to catch the batsmen in trouble. Hussey tucked it off his pads to the left of Praveen and they went for a rather risky single. Praveen tooks his eyes off the ball as he ran across and did not collect cleanly. If he had, he could have had either batsman in trouble

Chennai Super Kings 9/0   MEK Hussey 4* (9b)

Vinay Kumar to Hussey, 2 runs, short, not really short, but enough for Hussey to play the pull, he gets it out to deep midwicket, Taylor runs across from square leg and slides a mile as he tries to stop it. Shows just how wet the outfield is.


Vinay Kumar to Hussey, no run, back of a length outside off, Hussey hops out and swipes across the line. Miss


Vinay Kumar to Hussey, OUT, Hussey is gone. Steyn has taken a screamer, running back from mid off, but he seems to have banged his head on the turf as he fell backwards, pouching it behind him. The plan was clear, Chennai needed to make the most of the remaining Powerplay overs, Hussey looked to loft a back of length ball outside off, over long off, but it hit low on the bat and went higher than he would have wanted. Steyn back-pedalled furiously from mid off and took it well, but he is down on the ground. That must have hurt bad. He has gone off the field.

MEK Hussey c Steyn b Vinay Kumar 6 (16m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Chennai Super Kings 19/1   MEK Hussey 6 (12b)
