14.4 Bisla is gone this time, slower one working for Morkel, 109.6 kph short ball, he tried to make room and guide it over point, but ended up getting no timing on the stroke, and point went back a few steps to take the catch, but what an innings, could be a matchwinning one 139/2
    0.6 out, bowled, end of the captain! That was an off-spinner at 120 km/hr, it drifted into the batsman and then held its line, misses the slog and it sneaks through to it timber, the KKR camp is as quiet as the others in the stadium are not. 3/1
    18.5 just got still tougher, probably even out of reach now, Hilfenhaus gets Kallis, he had to go for it, he had to go for the boundary, but he sliced a high full toss straight to sweeper cover, they check for the no-ball but bowler is alright, just about, full toss comfortably below waist height as well, a disappointed Kallis has to go 175/5
    16.2 CSK have another wicket, the Shukla experiment has not worked, he has swung a pitched up ball straight to deep midwicket 152/3
    17.1 now Ashwin takes out another, Yusuf Pathan has one innings of note to show for the season, he tried to slog-sweep, looked to be the carrom ball, top-edge flies high in the air, and midwicket settles under it 164/4
