Ben Laughlin403829.5053130
4.3 to AT Rayudu, too close for the cut, and Rayudu pays the price! Good-length on the fourth-stump line, and his shot takes a thick outside edge. Too easy for Joseph Buttler. 50/1
19.5 to SR Watson, taken. Watson gets the front leg into the leg side to set up for the slog. Never a good strategy against Laughlin's away drifters. It's going too far away and he gets a thin edge that carries to Buttler. A sensational innings from Watson ends. 202/5
Shreyas Gopal402035.00122010
11.5 to SK Raina, excellent diving effort at deep midwicket! Gopal's gonna feel lucky here. It was overpitched on leg stump, and Raina's slog sweep is just mistimed. In the air for a while, before Gowtham runs forward and completes the catch. An all-Karnataka wicket there. 131/2
13.2 to MS Dhoni, he's taken at long-on! K Gowtham assists Gopal again. Just about. Dhoni steps out against the googly and is too close to it despite getting to the pitch of it at a good length in front of off. No room to swing and his attempted slog comes off the inside half and goes straight to Gowtham. He looks to take with a reverse-cup but eventually completes the catch after stretching to his right on the second attempt. 151/3
15.1 to SW Billings, picks out deep midwicket. CSK are having something of a slide on the end opposite to Watson's. It's a half-tracker from Gopal. Which is smart of him, because that's how you get wickets in the IPL if you're a spinner now. Sits up nicely on middle stump and he slaps it, flat, to Stokes in the deep. 161/4

Deepak Chahar403027.5091140
2.6 to SV Samson, picks out deep square! Once again, Samson struggles to get on top of a short ball. He's shadow-practicing rolling the bat over it as he walks off, but was nowhere near in position to do that as this short one skidded in towards his underarm. Got it off the high part of the bat and Karn Sharma snaps up a simple one. 25/2
4.3 to AM Rahane, knuckle ball to the top of middle! Rahane stepping out, getting outside the line of the stumps on the leg side, and swiping aimlessly while swivelling as he's beaten by pace by this short of a length ball. An ugly hoick would be describing it accurately, but it's been induced by a superbly disguised ball. 32/3
Shardul Thakur301826.0092000
1.5 to H Klaasen, Thakur outclasses Klaasen! Good length on middle, and that's dead centre. He tries to defend this straight back to Shardul, but played down the wrong line. Crashes straight into middle stump. 20/1
15.3 to STR Binny, Godly catch from Thakur! Short on off, and he tries to pull. The ball takes the top edge, and it's in the air for just a bit, as Thakur sprints, dives forward and then takes a one-handed stunner. 117/8
Shane Watson301314.3391010
14.4 to K Gowtham, top edged to Dhoni! Short on off, and Gowtham tries to pull this over midwicket, but can only find the bat's edge. Great day for Watson. 115/7
Imran Tahir4044111.0043210
13.5 to BA Stokes, Tahir has the last laugh! Tossed up on middle, and Stokes has no option but to slog sweep. Connected well, but doesn't have the distance. It's the longer part of the boundary on the leg-side, and therefore perishes for 45. 111/6
Dwayne Bravo201628.0021020
10.1 to JC Buttler, The DJ starts the party first ball! Offcutter, and short outside off. Buttler doesn't pick the pace up and tries to drag his pull. Takes the bat's toe end, goes in the air, and taken easily by first slip in the end. Royals spiraling downhill fast. 77/4
12.2 to RA Tripathi, full on off, and Tripathi goes for a wild leg-side heave. Tries to send it over deep midwicket, but comes off the bat's toe end. Billings, at cow corner, takes a few steps in front and completes the catch. 96/5
Karn Sharma1.301328.6622000
18.2 to JD Unadkat, crashes into middle stump! Tossed up on middle, and this is the topspin from Karn. Unadkat misses the slog, and the ball sneaks under his bat. Nine down now. 140/9
18.3 to B Laughlin, it's all over! Karn finishes with two wickets to his name. Good length outside off, and once again zipping straight through. The No. 11 tries to cut, but all he can get is a feather edge. Comfortably done by thala Dhoni as Chennai Super Kings win by 64 runs!. 140/10
