    1.6 edged and gone! Length and into the body, Rayudu looked a little rattled by the blow to the forearm couple of balls before, makes room, Archer follows him and all the batsman can manage in the end is steer it into the gloves of the keeper 1/1
    3.4 slash and caught at short third-man! Archer involved in another dismissal, takes it comfortably over his head. It was on a length, just outside off, not enough room for the shot and some extra bounce, Watson couldn't get the placement right and didn't have enough elevation either for it to clear Archer 14/2

    13.4 got 'im! Rolls this slower ball, full on middle stump, and Raina backs away to lift it over cover. Through his shot too early, and the ball crashes into middle stump. Huge roar from Unadkat 88/4
    4.5 edged and gone! CSK continue to play shots and continue to lose wickets. He was hanging back, Dhawal pitched this one right up, got it to move away in the air a little, Jadhav threw his bat it from the crease and only managed a nick to Buttler 27/3

    18.3 pulled, but sliced and DK makes no mistake at long on. Too high for Bravo to find the optimal connection, and the attempted pull finds the fielding riding the boundary 144/5

    0.2 has he taken that? Length outside off, shaping away again, Rahane follows the swing with just his bat without getting to the pitch, it held in the pitch a little, got him high on the bat, and went aerially towards backward point, who had to dive forward, full length and did so brilliantly! Third-umpire confirms that it carried and what a start for CSK after the spectacular Dhoni finish with the bat 0/1
    3.1 full on off, Buttler slices it high in the air towards mid-off and Bravo does well running back to his left and takes it comfortably 14/3
    2.6 Has he taken that at cover? Not too dissimilar to how Rahane perished. Third-umpire has been called. Length outside off, Samson goes for the drive, loses control with his bottom hand, goes aerially towards Raina at cover who dives foward and gets his hands comfortably under the ball. 14/2
    9.6 chipped straight back to Tahir! Slowed this one down, dipped on Tripathi, who turned the face early in an attempt to push it to long-on but only managed to lob a simple catch back to Tahir 75/4
    13.2 Tahir's running again! Full just outside off, but Smith comes down the ground and toe-ends a lofted shot. No real timing, and long-on makes no mistake 94/5
    19.1 soft dismissal! Chinna Thala to the rescue. Low full toss on off, and Stokes tries to lift it over cover, but he's sliced this to Raina at cover 164/7
    16.1 sliced to cover! Full just outside off, and Gowtham looks to smoke a drive over cover. Bat's face turns in his hand, and the spliced shot goes to Raina at the 30-yard circle 120/6

    19.5 in the air and taken at third man! Tahir takes the catch, and he gives the crowd a flying kiss. The Chepauk erupts. Length ball, on off, and Gopal's attempted slog takes an outside edge 166/8
