Hayden punched another 60 runs from 38 balls, but had little support at the other end (the nexthighest score was Dhoni's 18). Kumble opened the bowling and kept the runs down, finishing with 4-0-12-2, and Kallis (4-0-18-2) also ensured that the brakes remained on. Enterprising innings from Virat Kohli, who took calculated risks against Muralitharan, and Taylor ensured that Bangalore ended Chennai's five-match winning streak.
