Champions League Twenty20 - 1st semi final

Chennai Super Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore

Chennai Super Kings won by 52 runs (D/L method)

3.5

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   M Vijay 12* (11b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 1.5-0-6-1

11.5

Vinay Kumar to Vijay, OUT, at long last, Bangalore have taken a catch. Without sustaining an injury. Vijay has not had much of the strike recently, and was setting himself up for another pull-swing over the leg side. This was too short for that shot, and duly took the top edge. Straight up, and a calm Kohli runs across and takes it non-chalantly

M Vijay c Kohli b Vinay Kumar 41 (55m 32b 4x4 1x6) SR: 128.12

Chennai Super Kings 100/2   SK Raina 49* (28b 4x6)   R Vinay Kumar 2.5-0-13-2

13.6

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   SK Raina 58* (33b 5x6)   D du Preez 3-0-32-1

16.4

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

Chennai Super Kings 170/4   SK Raina 90* (46b 4x4 6x6)   CL White 1.4-0-22-1
