1.5 that same line and length. And a terribly-judged second from Goswami! CSK's first wicket. Worked away towards backward square leg. Fine leg gets across quickly, he's holding the ball by the time Goswami turns around. Dhawan looks at his partner mid-way through and knows that's an iffy call, but trusts his partner. Maybe, he shouldn't have. Dhoni takes off the bails with Goswami well short. 13/1
    8.3 the wild slog and Jadeja strikes! Flat and straight, as anticipated, Dhawan looks to slog sweep that over midwicket but he doesn't make contact. The ball beats the slog, clips the thigh pad and then knocks into the stumps. That'll slow Sunrisers down. Again, the first over after a time-out. 64/2
    12.1 legspinner's dream ball! Sweeeet. Full, but wide outside off, and KW couldn't pick the line. He came shimmying down the wicket trying to play it big, but the ball drifts away from the batsman, lands near the tramlines, and then Dhoni does the rest. A rare pre-meditated shot attempted by Williamson 101/3
    15.5 full toss outside off, and that's been struck straight to Raina at cover! Bravo's going to feel very lucky. Shakib did hit it well, but Raina's a beast in the field. Time out as Hooda makes his way out 133/4
    not out
    16.6 full outside off, and he tries to slog it towards midwicket. He's through his shot too early and the shot's been dragged to deep square leg. Deceived completely by the (lack of) pace. Taken by Shorey 144/5
    19.6 Holes out but Sunrisers finish on 178 for 6. Short outside off again, and he tries to pull it towards the leg side. off the bat's toe end, and caught easily by Rayudu. Who's got the momentum at the break? 178/6
