Fall of wickets: 1-68 (Shaun Marsh, 8.1 ov), 2-97 (Azhar Mahmood, 11.6 ov), 3-127 (David Miller, 15.5 ov), 4-133 (Mandeep Singh, 16.5 ov), 5-138 (David Hussey, 17.2 ov), 6-138 (Piyush Chawla, 17.4 ov), 7-148 (Bipul Sharma, 18.4 ov), 8-154 (Nitin Saini, 19.5 ov)
19.5 to N Saini, caught and bowled! It was a slower delivery - 106 kph - on a good length and straight line. Saini slogged, aiming for deep midwicket, he ended up slicing the ball high in the air towards short midwicket. Kulasekara called for the catch and took it. 154/8
15.5 to DA Miller, caught behind! That's a strange one. Morkel bowled a slower short ball, Miller got into position to pull initially and then had to wait for the ball to reach him, he then decided to chip it over the keeper instead. All he managed was to edge it straight to Dhoni. 127/3
17.2 to DJ Hussey, pulled hard but straight to Jakati at midwicket! That is an important strike for Chennai, the last of the specialist batsmen has been dismissed with plenty of overs remaining. The ball from Morkel was short and Hussey pulled with power off the front foot, he just did not place it well. 138/5
17.4 to PP Chawla, tremendous catch! Bravo sprinted forward and to his right from long-off to get under a mis-hit from Chawla, he then had to leap in the air as the ball descended, arching his body and catching the ball in mid air, holding it safely as his body slammed into the ground. 138/6
11.6 to Azhar Mahmood, lbw! Bravo pitched the ball on a good length just outside off and nipped it back into the right-hander, Mahmood tried to steer towards third man and opened the face to do so, he played down the wrong line though and was struck plumb in front. 97/2
16.5 to Mandeep Singh, Mandeep cleared his front foot and tried to smash the ball over the straight boundary, he mis-timed it and the ball began its descent about mid-way to the long-off boundary, Raina came running in from the deep and caught it. 133/4

Fall of wickets: 1-47 (Faf du Plessis, 5.3 ov), 2-62 (S Badrinath, 7.4 ov), 3-71 (Suresh Raina, 10.2 ov), 4-87 (Wriddhiman Saha, 12.4 ov), 5-88 (MS Dhoni, 13.2 ov), 6-98 (Ravindra Jadeja, 14.4 ov), 7-136 (Dwayne Bravo, 18.5 ov), 8-140 (Albie Morkel, 19.1 ov)
18.5 to DJ Bravo, caught at deep midwicket! And caught very well! Bravo came forward, made room and heaved across the line, pulling the slower ball towards the fielder. Chawla came in from the boundary and then lunged to his right to take a crucial catch for his team. 136/7
5.3 to F du Plessis, caught and bowled! Mahmood rolled his fingers over the ball and it arrived much slower than Faf expected, he pushed at the ball too early and played it straight to Mahmood, who took the catch at stomach height. 47/1
7.4 to S Badrinath, he's been caught right on the square leg boundary! It was the slower ball from Mahmood bowled on a length and Badrinath pulled it, pulled it straight to the substitute Dogra on the boundary. He took the catch and then looked back at his back foot. It was just inside the boundary. 62/2
19.1 to JA Morkel, Morkel's holed out! Surely Kings XI have this game now. It was a full ball slanting wide outside off stump, Morkel swung hard, aiming for wide long-on, his favourite region. He ended up slicing the ball high in the air, so high that Marsh had time to run in from long-off and take the catch just outside the circle at mid-off. 140/8
10.2 to SK Raina, Raina's been stumped and he's hurt himself as well. He came forward, dragging his back foot out as he lunged to play the quicker ball that slid across him, Saini collected and whipped off the bails, Raina did a split of sorts as he tried to regain ground and then fell over. 71/3
14.4 to RA Jadeja, Kings XI have got another one! Jadeja tried to launch the googly into orbit on the leg side but ended up top-edging it high in the air toward cover, Hussey settled under the ball and caught it. 98/6
12.4 to WP Saha, bowled him! Saha slogged across the line at a flat ball angled across him from round the wicket, he got an inside edge on to his leg and then on to his stumps. 87/4
