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 Raina, (no ball) 1 run, The free-hit is a no-ball as well. Short and wide outside off, Raina can't time the back foot cross batted punch, and takes a single. A free hit for Dhoni now.


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 Raina, no run, 120.5 kph, short and wide outside off, Raina wants more pace on the ball, he is charging out and looking for muscle, but he can't connect


White to Raina, 1 wide, this one slips well wide outside off. Steyn is being missed here.


White to Raina, 1 run, another short ball, at 119 kph, Raina can't time it again, single to wide long on


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   CL White 1-0-13-0

White to Raina, FOUR, well, starts with a 101 kph length ball on leg stump, Raina could have hit it anywhere on the leg side, but pulled it very fine past short fine leg for four


White to Raina, FOUR, another short ball, angles across, well outside off and Raina dismisses it with a cross-batted swat - tremendous bat swing to send it away to third man. Nearly a six that


White to Raina, 1 run, slow, slow stuff, Raina waits and wait and cross bats it to the covers., Manjrekar defines the ball as a 'donkey drop'


White to Morkel, OUT, Morkel is gone, but things are just getting worse for Bangalore. Short and asking to be hit on leg stump, Morkel goes for the pull, top edge takes it ballooning down to deep midwicket. Kohli runs in and tumbles forward as he takes the catch.. and in the process hurts his already dodgy back, which was stopping him from bowling

JA Morkel c Kohli b White 5 (13m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66


White to Raina, no run, somehow, White is escaping with these short deliveries. Raina misses with the pull again and Uthappa cleans up.


White to Raina, FOUR, and that sums up the innings. Another short gift from White and Raina has it for dessert before running back into the dug out. Pulled high and to the left of midwicket, the fielder runs across and dives. I hope he did not pick an injury in the process. The ball speeds past to the boundary. Raina has finished with a bang.

Chennai Super Kings 174/4   CL White 2-0-26-1
