Ashok Menaria201708.5032010
Amit Singh4040110.0075100
18.3 to SK Raina, Amit's cut the damages a bit by getting rid of Raina. Canny little slow offcutter on leg stump and breaking across Raina, who swings hard and misses the heave over the leg side. Off stump is pegged back.. 179/3
Shane Watson4047011.7545110
Johan Botha402315.75121110
9.2 to MEK Hussey, yorked him! Botha's nailed Hussey with some very brave bowling. It is a short boundary on the leg side, there's no midwicket, and he asks Hussey to go for the big slog sweep. Hussey goes for it, but the ball is through very fast and he can't get under it. Leg stump out of the turf.. 77/1

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Albie Morkel302117.0062010
8.2 to LRPL Taylor, Morkel's removed Rossco. More like Rossco has removed himself. Full ball, wide outside off, and Taylor scoops the drive in the air over the infield. Saha ran in from deep cover-point and took a good tumbling catch.. 63/3
Doug Bollinger402235.50121010
3.4 to R Dravid, Dravid is gone, he seems to have got a feather through to Dhoni after attempting another pull. Bollinger keeps it short outside off, not as short as Dravid thought and the ball went under the bat and took the edge through. Huge noise on the replay.. 27/1
18.4 to DH Yagnik, Bolly puts Yagnik out of his misery with a thunderous yorker. Full, fast, gunning for leg stump and Yagnik's rituals in front of the stumps don't do much to deviate it off its course. Bollinger doesn't celebrate, he just walks back to his mark, while Yagnik walks back to the hut.. 132/7
18.6 to J Botha, you just have to love Bollinger! The scorecard will say Botha c & b Bollinger, but that's not even half the story. Another bouncer, Botha top-edges this time and it pops right up. Bollinger calls for it and races down the track on his follow through. He takes it behind the stumps, next to Dhoni, and then lunges forward and tumbles and rolls like the very epitome of clumsiness. Dhoni watches with a half smile. All's Well, of course!. 133/8
Dwayne Bravo403619.0073110
14.1 to AM Rahane, Raina's easily the best fielder in the Indian team, and here's more proof. Length ball from Bravo, Rahane looks to slam him wide of long-on, but it was too wide of off stump for him to get the placement. It was headed straight over the ropes though, behind Raina, until he leapt up and caught it a foot or so inside. Well-timed jump, and taken without a fuss. Is that the end of RR's chase? Put your hands together for Ajinkya.. 105/5
Ravichandran Ashwin402426.00103000
5.5 to SR Watson, as always, Ashwin manages to get the important wicket. Tossed up on leg stump, Watson goes for the big sweep and gets a top edge. Was it a carom ball? The top edge stayed in the air a while, and Jakati called for it. He fumbled a couple of times, but eventually held on.. 48/2
9.5 to AL Menaria, Ashwin's struck again, Doxy's gone and RR slip further. This time he pauses on his delivery stride, takes a look at Menaria's footwork and sends it down slow and short of a length outside off. It turns and bounces more than Menaria thought, and he ended up nicking it into Dhoni's gloves.. 70/4
Shadab Jakati403007.5062010
Suresh Raina0.30020.0030000
19.1 to A Singh, Raina's turn to pull off another stunner. Tossed up outside off, Amit Singh hits it right back to the left of Raina, and it was travelling. Raina leapt across like a 'tracer bullet' and pouched it in one hand. Spectacular.. 133/9
19.3 to SK Warne, all over. Raina's got the legend, and he has two wickets in three balls. Chennai are knocking on the doors of the play-offs. @ImRaina tosses it up outside off, @Warne888 smears it high over mid-off, and @newbigdog at long-off holds it easy.. 133/10
