Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Ravi Bopara, 2.5 ov), 2-54 (Kumar Sangakkara, 8.2 ov), 3-58 (Irfan Pathan, 9.5 ov), 4-64 (Mahela Jayawardene, 10.6 ov), 5-109 (Mohammad Kaif, 16.2 ov), 6-124 (Manvinder Bisla, 18.5 ov), 7-124 (Yuvraj Singh, 18.6 ov), 8-125 (Rusty Theron, 19.1 ov)
2.5 to RS Bopara, nicely taken by Balaji at third man! Bopara was itching to get one away, sashayed down the track and looked to go with an expansive swing to the full ball outside off, and he timed it quite well. Bala runs in a few paces, bends forward and takes it well.. 18/1
18.6 to Yuvraj Singh, and the big fish has been hooked! Yuvraj has been starved of the strike by some smart bowling and fielding, and he tries to muscle this one over long on, mindful of the building pressure. It's well hit, but not well enough and balloons to George Bailey who takes it easily at long on. 124/7
9.5 to IK Pathan, and he's cleaned him up this time! Great, persistent bowling from Bala who has kept it simple, short of a length and on a nagging line. Irfan knew he needed to up the ante and looked to slog-pull the ball on leg stump, but could only get a meek inside edge on to leg stump.. 58/3
8.2 to KC Sangakkara, he's done him here! Murali beats Sanga, by pulling it back just a fraction. Sanga thought it was in his territory, licked his lips and jumped out, but Murali was the man chuckling as his Sri Lanka captain fell for the bait. Parthiv Patel did the rest behind the stumps.. 54/2
10.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, gotcha! Murali is the king of Sri Lanka as far as today is concerned, he's vanquished Sanga and now he's sent back Mahela! Turning offie on middle, from around the wickets, straightens as Mahela gets forward, but it beats his attempt to work it across the line and thuds on the pads. Umpires should give these out more consistently for the good of the game.. 64/4
16.2 to M Kaif, very pretty shot from Kaif, but as he's done a few times in the past, he hits it straight down the fielder's throat! Full on leg stump, he comes down the track and picks it up well, but gets the placement all wrong, sends it straight to deep midwicket. 109/5

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.80)136/7
Fall of wickets: 1-65 (Matthew Hayden, 8.4 ov), 2-96 (Suresh Raina, 12.3 ov), 3-97 (Murali Vijay, 12.6 ov), 4-104 (S Badrinath, 13.6 ov), 5-121 (Parthiv Patel, 17.2 ov), 6-127 (Manpreet Gony, 18.4 ov), 7-136 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 19.6 ov)
19.6 to R Ashwin, Ashwin's gone! Fasten your seatbelts folks, we have a super over coming up! Pressure has taken its toll! Pathan keeps it slow and steady, on a length, Ashwin swings it away ram-rod straight to mid off, where Kaif takes the dolly. Punjab are ecstatic!. 136/7
8.4 to ML Hayden, nifty bit of bowling from Powar! Foxes him with some classical offspin here. Hayden's down the track again, but announces his intentions a moment too soon, Powar sees him, pulls it back a little, defeats him in the flight and beats the attempted swipe to hit the stumps. Great work, big wicket.. 65/1
12.6 to M Vijay, and he's got two for the over! Theron's persisted with that line through the over and Vijay has not come forward even once. This time, it catches him on the crease, and it may have been sliding down the leg, but not in umpire Harper's book.. 97/3
18.4 to MS Gony, stumps everywhere! Theron has bowled with zest today and this was probably his best. Fast, length ball targetting middle, challenging Gony to try and find the fence. Gony obliged, and missed the ball, and CLATTER! Chennai are choking big time, it's all down to Morkel.. 127/6
17.2 to PA Patel, Chawla has his number this time! Draws him out of the track, with a leggie tossed up wide of the batsman, Patel misses the attempted drive and Sanga's got the bails off before you could say Parthiv. Huge wicket. Chennai are making rough weather of this chase.. 121/5
13.6 to S Badrinath, gotcha! Chennai are crumbling and the crowd is in a lull now. Yuvraj's struck another blow, short and cramping Badri for room, he went for the cut and got a faint edge. Sanga put it down the first time, but regained in time before it touched the turf. Punjab have a sniff here.. 104/4
