19.2 to S Anirudha, superb yorker, made room, that was in the blockhole, he couldn't dig it out and the stumps took a beating. 132/5
Makhaya Ntini20703.5050000
Nicky Boje2022011.0032100
Justin Kreusch401934.7580000
8.4 to M Vijay, bowled'im, Kreusch targeted middle and leg with that one, bowled it full and Vijay walked across to flick it in his favourite midwicket region, it was almost in the blockhole, he missed and was bowled. 63/1
12.1 to SK Raina, well taken at long-on, it's bowled on a length and Raina picks it well, timing it beautifully while trying to get it wide of long-on but Ingram covers good ground running to his right and slides to perfection, clasping his hands underneath the ball inches from the ground, Raina wasn't moving but replays confirmed the catch was clean, huge roar from the home crowd. 89/2
14.4 to S Badrinath, what a spell by Kreush, short of a good length and Badri wants to deposit it over square leg, it held its line, he swung hard, missed, left a yawning gap and the middle stump was knocked out, three for the medium-pacer, kept it simple and has reaped the rewards. 99/4
Johan Botha402716.7592100
13.1 to MEK Hussey, bowled'im, Hussey goes, Botha fired it full on middle and Hussey went for it, attempting the slog-sweep, it was quicker and beat the swing of the bat, was probably a touch too full as well and crashed into the stumps, a hard-working innings comes to an end, Warriors have fought back well. 94/3

Doug Bollinger403107.75105000
Ravichandran Ashwin402436.00154000
3.2 to AG Prince, brilliantly taken, Ashwin bowls from round the wicket on a good length on middle, Prince charges out with the same intention, of clearing the off-side field, it turns away, Prince gets an outside edge, Kemp at slip shows excellent reflexes, flinging himself to his left and snapping a one-handed blinder, we saw one earlier in the day from Jehan Mubarak against Central Districts. 24/1
17.2 to JP Kreusch, stumped off the carrom ball, it was tossed up outside off, Kreusch came down the track to deposit that into the stands behind square leg, missed as it didn't turn his way and Dhoni did the rest, a valuable innings though. 107/4
17.6 to MV Boucher, slows it down and gives it some air, tries to send that over midwicket, swings hard but doesn't strike it in the intended area, gets a leading edge and it sails towards long-on where Justin Kemp, standing on the boundary, much like Hussey earlier in the innings, leaps and takes an excellent well-judged catch, the end of an impressive spell from Ashwin. 112/5
Shadab Jakati402716.75101200
8.4 to DJ Jacobs, a major blow, tossed up on middle and Jacobs senses a chance, bends low and pulls out the slog-sweep, appears to connect well but there is Mike Hussey waiting at the deep midwicket boundary, he times his jump to perfection and snaps it with both hands over his head, comfortably done, Warriors are two down. 48/2
Muthiah Muralidaran401924.7590000
19.2 to N Boje, easily done by Hussey at long-on, tossed up outside off, it's a touch too wide for Boje who had targeted the leg-side boundary, didn't connect well at all, Hussey had his eyes on it throughout and completed a well-judged catch running forward. 123/7
19.6 to J Theron, Chennai have qualified for the semi-finals, tossed up outside off, was the doosra, Theron had a wild swing, missed and Dhoni made no mistake. 126/8
Justin Kemp201005.0061000
Suresh Raina201216.0050100
11.3 to CA Ingram, the slow bowlers are doing the job, drops it short on leg stump, gets on the back foot and strikes it clean and hard but there isn;t much elevation on that one, lands straight into the palms of Badrinath at deep midwicket who holds his nerve. 63/3
