24 September 2010 - day/night match (20-over match)

White to Dhoni, (no ball) 1 run, and he begins with a no-ball, Dhoni could not put it away but gave strike to Raina for the free-hit. Not a bad idea.


White to Dhoni, 1 run, and Dhoni can't put it away either. Short ball, coming in and Dhoni looks to thwack it across the line, but can't make good contact


White to Dhoni, 1 wide, another wide, down the leg side now to the right hander


White to Dhoni, FOUR, what a forgettable over this. Slips down the leg, Dhoni rotates on his axis twice as he plays the pull and gets it very fine


White to Dhoni, no run, bangs it in outside off, gets a hint of away movement and Dhoni can't connect with the carve over the off side


White to Dhoni, 1 run, another gentle short ball, Dhoni pulls vigorously but can't time it. Single to square leg.

Chennai Super Kings 119/2   MS Dhoni 7* (5b 1x4)

du Preez to Dhoni, 4 byes, well the one thing we did not have in that previous over was bad wicketkeeping. Now we do. Yorker chases Dhoni, through his legs and Uthappa does not collect it. Away for four byes.


du Preez to Dhoni, 1 leg bye, 133.5 kph, coming into Dhoni from off stump and he can't connect the pull. Picks a single off the pads


du Preez to Dhoni, 4 leg byes, it's all hurting Bangalore now. Steyn's absence, Uthappa's make-shift keeping skills. Sliding down the leg and Dhoni gets some pad on it, but Uthappa should have saved that. He did not and that's four leg byes


du Preez to Dhoni, FOUR, short on off stump, Dhoni looks for the bottom handed whiplash outside off, and gets a thick outside edge wide of Uthappa for four to third man


du Preez to Dhoni, OUT, and gone. Dhoni has played a hundred shots while he was out there for 11 off 10. He played another slog pull here, it was fuller than that and sneaked through to crash into the stumps.

MS Dhoni b du Preez 11 (11m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Chennai Super Kings 133/3   MS Dhoni 11 (10b 2x4)
