4.4 to AC Gilchrist, bowled'im, Gilchrist has been sent back, slower through the air and gave it some flight, Gilchrist stepped out of his crease to crack it through the leg side, it landed on leg to spin away and beat the swing of the bat to crash into middle and off. 55/1

Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Murali Vijay, 2.1 ov), 2-18 (Suresh Raina, 2.4 ov), 3-31 (Matthew Hayden, 4.1 ov), 4-32 (S Badrinath, 5.3 ov), 5-70 (Justin Kemp, 9.6 ov), 6-108 (MS Dhoni, 14.6 ov), 7-115 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 15.3 ov), 8-136 (Lakshmipathy Balaji, 17.5 ov), 9-137 (Muthiah Muralidaran, 18.1 ov)
2.1 to M Vijay, bowled'im! Some movement inward but that was always heading just one way, M Vijay gave him the charge and tried to smash him over midwicket, swung hard, got an inside edge and the leg stump was knocked off. 12/1
2.4 to SK Raina, Vaas bites back! Another audacious attempt but Raina falters this time, it's short and wide, he makes room to cut it hard through point, gets a thick outside edge and Gilchrist reacts well, moving quickly to his left to snap a sharp one. 18/2
4.1 to ML Hayden, gone! Hayden's dismissal is quite similar to Misbah's in the World Twenty20 final in 2007, Vaas bowled it fullish on the off, Hayden bent low, went across and tried to scoop it over short fine but found more elevation than he would have desired, RP, waiting patiently, moved a few steps to his right and held on to a well-judged catch. What a blow!. 31/3
15.3 to R Ashwin, Ashwin goes first ball, he struck that well but RP, who's had a great day with catches, snaps another testing one, lofted inside out and he ran a few yards from long-off to stretch at just the right time and clasp it with both hands. 115/7
17.5 to L Balaji, the entertainment ends, bowls it full on the off, makes room and tries to clear extra cover but can't, mistimes it straight to Anirudh. 136/8
5.3 to S Badrinath, Badrinath has holed out, tossed up outside off and he saw the invitation, moved away and tried to loft him wide of long-off but couldn't, found the fielder who just had to take a few steps to his left. The pressure was building with all those dot balls, and Chennai's chase has been dealt another setback. 32/4
9.6 to JM Kemp, Ojha has his revenge, beautifully bowled, deceived the batsman in flight and altered his length to hold it back, it landed on the off stump as Kemp charged forward and tried to play it into the off side, and turned away to beat his reach while Gilchrist did the rest. Chennai are sinking, but Dhoni's still there. 70/5
14.6 to MS Dhoni, Symonds gets the decisive blow, appeared to hurry on to Dhoni, short of a good length on middle, Dhoni, playing from the crease, tried to whip that through midwicket, missed and was bowled. 108/6
18.1 to M Muralidaran, Symonds strikes again, Murali, normally a batsman with plenty of spunk, has one of his off days, swinging across the line to a straight one on middle, is struck on the pads and we know the result. 137/9
