3.3 to V Kohli, he's got him! Harbhajan hadn't got a wicket in the last three T20s he played in. What a time and what a wicket to break that duck. Dragged this a little shorter, but it was still spinning into Kohli, who transferred weight back and pulled fiercely. But the ball's not really coming on to the bat, so even though he connected well, he didn't get the distance, and Ravindra Jadeja at deep midwicket stayed still and caught the ball, calm as you please. Chepauk's gone ballistic. 16/1
5.2 to MM Ali, popped back to the bowler tames of dismissals. This one was on the length from where the ball is holding up. It held up even more, pitched on off and spinning away, and Moeen was way too early into his shot, trying to drive. Ends up popping the ball in the air off the end of the bat, and Harbhajan has all the time in the world to pluck the catch over his head. What a start by Harbhajan and Chennai. 28/2
7.2 to AB de Villiers, you cannot deny Harbhajan today AB tries to sweep again, but doesn't get hold of it once again. The pitch is not one where you can rely on the ball coming on even a bit, and AB is too early, the top edge flies to midwicket this time. And Jadeja is the man there, he isn't going to drop any. even when he has to run in and dive forward. RCB in tatters. 38/3
9.2 to S Dube, Dube departs cheaply, googly does the trick. Was a length ball around off and spinning away, Dube looks to steer it on the off side, gets an outside edge and Watson takes an easy catch around stomach height at first slip. 45/5
11.1 to NA Saini, fuller around off, a googly again to beat the forward defence, an appeal for lbw but think it hit him outside the line of the off stump. Not out but Dhoni has decided to review it. Front foot is fine. Looks like there is some bat involved, an inside edge, replays confirm. But wait, Watson have taken the catch as well, so it's not lbw but caught behind. 53/7
13.4 to YS Chahal, goes for the slog sweep, the idea was good as it was a googly but doesn't get the timing right and Harbhajan takes a neat catch pedalling backward at deep square leg. 59/8
10.3 to C de Grandhomme, caught behind! A similar delivery, but a touch fuller this time, pitching around off, de Grandhomme comes forward to defend but it spins away sharply to take the outside edge, Dhoni makes no mistake. 50/6
16.5 to UT Yadav, Jadeja gets his line right finally, pitching on middle and spinning away, comes forward to defend and beats the bat to flatten the off stump. 70/9
17.1 to PA Patel, and he strikes first ball. Parthiv it is, so he doesn't become the first batsman to carry his bat in the IPL. Coming to the ball, it was short down the leg side, Parthiv goes for the pull but ends up hitting it straight to Jadeja at square leg. 70/10

2.1 to SR Watson, got him that's an ugly heave from Watson to a slider that pitched on off. Went for a slog sweep but misses it entirely and the ball cannons into the stumps.. 8/1
9.2 to SK Raina, goes for the big hit this time but doesn't get the timing right, skips down to this length ball and Dube takes a comfortable catch at long-on. 40/2
14.2 to AT Rayudu, chopped on! Down the track but this is short and aimed at the batsman, Rayudu is cramped and is in no position to pull, ends up chopping it on to his stumps. 59/3
