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

Kohli to Raina, SIX, Raina has swung this off the meat and over the square leg boundary. Not very good line, it was on the pads, and not very good length, Raina got under it and slammed it

Chennai Super Kings 40/1   SK Raina 8* (5b 1x6)   V Kohli 0.2-0-6-0

Kohli to Raina, SIX, slog sweep. Well, Steyn's injury is going to hurt Bangalore here. Kohli lands another one in Raina's favourite slot. Length ball on off stump, he goes down on a knee and smacks it over wide long on. Brutal and effective. I don't think he would have handled Steyn in the same way though.

Chennai Super Kings 50/1   SK Raina 17* (8b 2x6)   V Kohli 1-0-15-0

du Preez to Raina, SIX, Raina has mowed this into deep midwicket, and I reckon that would have disturbed the rain clouds. Length ball from du Preez, on off stump and angling away. Enough room for Raina to flex his muscles and he sends it soaring into the night.

Chennai Super Kings 62/1   SK Raina 26* (12b 3x6)   D du Preez 0.1-0-6-0

du Preez to Raina, SIX, short ball? What short ball? Take that says Raina, who is playing a blinder! He almost pulled that from over his head, bringing the bat down in a really brutal swing. That went very high and landed over cow corner

Chennai Super Kings 70/1   SK Raina 33* (14b 4x6)   D du Preez 0.4-0-14-0

du Preez to Vijay, SIX, this time, Vijay has played the shot perfectly. It is his bread-and-butter shot and he latched on at the right instant this time to send it packing over wide long on. In the crease, cross bat, elegant snap of the wrist and she is away into the night.

Chennai Super Kings 86/1   M Vijay 38* (27b 4x4 1x6)   D du Preez 1.3-0-23-0

Vinay Kumar to Raina, SIX, Raina can play that shot in Durban, or he can at Wimbledon. A violent cross court slam, its not a pull - he is on the front foot and the momentum is going forward. He has just slapped it from outside off well over midwicket. That's his fifty, what an innings this has been. Five sixes, and no fours.

Chennai Super Kings 106/2   SK Raina 55* (29b 5x6)   R Vinay Kumar 3-0-19-2

Kumble to Raina, SIX, he's teed off this time. Raina is playing a special innings here. Kumble tosses it up, Raina saw it early, came forward, took it from a length on leg stump line and spanked it high over square leg. Straight bat and very good timing

Chennai Super Kings 147/3   SK Raina 72* (36b 2x4 6x6)   A Kumble 3.3-0-33-0
