3.4 Bouncer does the trick once again for Delhi! And another good one too - Nehra got the line just outside off and the length perfect, Vijay was committed into the pull, without being in any position to execute it. The top edge loops up and lands in Dinesh Karthik's gloves. Chepauk is queit! 23/3
    1.3 Collingwood shows how it is done! Hayden's poor IPL continues, he walked down the pitch this time, expecting to get to the pitch, but Nehra shortened the length, Hayden went through with the straight drive and spooned it straight up over cover. Colly runs back and takes it easy. Big wicket, Hayden murdered them the last time. 9/1
    2.2 GONE! Nannes has got Dhoni with a short ball and Chennai are reeling here! Nice bouncer from Nannes, Dhoni was not sure which way to move, got back late and played a wimp of a pull shot, which popped up easily for Manhas at square leg inside the circle. The experiment to move to three has back-fired. Captain gone for a duck 13/2
    8.1 as soft as they come! Raina jumps out, looks to drive inside out over cover. Everything is right about the shot, except there was a gleeful fielder at deep cover to take the offering. 52/4
    9.1 well, Chennai are falling apart in bizarre fashion. Flighted on Hussey's off stump, he gets forward and is early into the shot, probably eager to smother the spin. The drives pops up straight to cover. Total damage. 53/5
    19.6 Mishra may drop 'em, but don't bet on David Warner dropping anything! Badri goes for his stock shot again, waiting well back to get under the full length ball and get it over long on, just that he did not time it well enough and it went straight to Warner on the long on fence. 112/9
    9.6 Is that Sehwag or Muralitharan?! Big spin again, from leg towards off, Morkel is befuddled completely as it takes outside edge and carries to Collingwood at slip who takes it cleanly. Chennai are shell-shocked, both the team and the city! 55/6
    14.1 Direct hit from wide long on and Ashwin is run out trying the second run Great throw from Mishra running back towards long on, Ashwin was not expecting trouble and was not running at full tilt. Might have just proved to be his undoing, he was short by a foot at least. 72/7
    16.1 another sweep attempted by Balaji, and with as much lack of conviction as he has displayed all day while sweeping. Full on middle, pitches and strikes him flush in front of middle and off. Fair call. 77/8

    1.1 Sehwag is gone! Chennai's Australians rise to the occasion! Full and fast outside off to Sehwag who goes for the booming square drive and gets a thick edge that would have flown over most heads at slip, but big booming Matty Hayden was there, all of six feet and several inches, jumping up and taking it overhead. Chepauk roars! 5/2
    0.3 Ashwin is back in business! Short of a length, but big spin from outside leg to off, Warner can't control the cut, it goes in the air to cover where Vijay dives forward and comes up with the ball, letting out a huge roar. The crowd loves it! Hang on guys, this ain't over. 1/1
    1.4 three down before you know it! Dilshan is a goner too and Chennai are right back in this! Straight ball with a very faint hint of inward movement which Dishan did not spot. He went through with the expansive cover drive, despite not being to the pitch, got an inside edge and it crashed into the furniture. Chepauk is roaring ' BOLL IN GERR!!!' 6/3
    not out
    6.6 and he's got him this time! He's bowled three very good balls at DK and set him up, this one was quicker and not short enough for the pull. But DK thought so, he went though with the shot and top edged the pull to midwicket where Badri takes a well judged catch under pressure. That was swirling and curling in the Chennai lights, but Badri kept his cool. 38/4
