17.2 to JDP Oram, Nannes strikes, Oram is gone, it was similar to the previous delivery, Oram swings mightily again, gets bat this time, but AB de Villiers keeps his composure to take a difficult catch at wide long-on, he was on the edge of the boundary there. 144/6
17.3 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni falls and Chennai's innings is unravelling here, Nannes is on a hat-trick, Dhoni tries to pull but gets a top edge to the 145 kmh delivery, and it swirls towards Gautam Gambhir at cover for a simple catch. 144/7
19.4 to SB Jakati, Nannes gets another one, familiar mode of dismissal for Chennai today, a huge swat gets a top edge which results in a simple catch to Gambhir at cover. 162/9
4.4 to M Vijay, short ball does the trick for Nehra, Vijay's gone, the batsmen went for a pull, it got a thick top edge and the ball swirled towards extra cover, for a moment it seemed Rajat Bhatia and David Warner might collide attempting the catch, Bhatia takes a simple catch in the end after clashing with Warner. 36/1
15.2 to JA Morkel, big, big wicket for Delhi, Albie Morkel is gone, Nehra's bouncer gets him another wicket, Albie went for the pull but it could only manage a top edge which hangs in the air long enough for Nehra himself to get under it. 134/5
18.4 to L Balaji, the procession continues, Balaji is the one to go this , fuller from Nehra, Balaji tries to loft over mid-on but can only spoon it to AB de Villiers. 151/8
5.4 to ML Hayden, Sangwan gets him this time, Hayden tries a repeat of the previous stroke, mishit towards long-on, where Ab de Villiers takes a good, low catch. 46/2
12.3 to SK Raina, Raina holes out to midwicket, whoah didn't Delhi need that breakthrough, Raina was down the track to laucnh the ball over his favourite midwicket region, he hits it well but it finds Dilshan about a yard in from the boundary, coolly taken by Dilshan. 112/3
14.5 to S Badrinath, knocked over! Badrinath again starts to walk across the stumps in an attempt to paddle the ball down to fine leg but this time Bhatia is alert and slides in a quick yorker that sneaks between bat and leg to disturb the furniture. 130/4

18.6 to R Bhatia, another wicket goes down, the fat lady is starting to sing, Morkel sends down a full ball on middle and off, Bhatia gives himself room and hacks at it, L Balaji runs across from cover to pouch the mishit. 135/8
3.1 to G Gambhir, a blinder from Raina gets rid of Gambhir, it was a poor delivery, short and wide, Gambhir lashed at it and it flew towards point, seemingly headed for the boundary, but Raina dives full length to his right and plucks it with one hand, that ball was screaming. 20/1
3.2 to AB de Villiers, Another big blow, AB de Villiers continues the IPL trend of golden ducks, this was a beauty from Tyagi, pitching on back of a length around middle, de Villiers tries to defend but it held its line and crashed into the stumps, Tyagi's on a hat-trick. 20/2
6.5 to TM Dilshan, cracker of delivery accounts for Dilshan, a bit of flight pitching on leg and turns past Dilshan's forward defence to hit middle and off, that's a delivery Jakati will remember for a long time. 53/3
15.5 to DA Warner, Warner was onto the front foot, and put everything behind a heave to get the ball to midwicket, he missed the ball and couldn't get back in time before Dhoni whips off the bails, third umpire confirms Warner's on his way. 127/4
17.2 to KD Karthik, Not very costly at all it turns out as Karthik holes out off the very next ball, a sweep from Karthik gets a top edge and it hovers to Murali at midwicket, who makes no misjudgment. Murali knows it's a big wicket, he jumping around for joy after taking the catch. 132/6
17.6 to PJ Sangwan, Jakati completes a superb spell with another wicket, Sangwan is bowled, he swings and misses, and the stumps are knocked back, Delhi are trying to match Chennai for late collapse. 133/7
16.4 to M Manhas, the doosra does the trick for Murali, it was full and flat and Manhas was eying the midwicket boundary, is beaten and offstump is knocked back. 128/5
