Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Yashasvi Jaiswal, 2.2 ov), 2-132 (Sanju Samson, 11.4 ov), 3-134 (David Miller, 11.6 ov), 4-149 (Robin Uthappa, 14.1 ov), 5-167 (Rahul Tewatia, 16.2 ov), 6-173 (Riyan Parag, 16.6 ov), 7-178 (Steven Smith, 18.2 ov)
2.2 to YBK Jaiswal, smart bowling. Jaiswal sees this is shortish again, and thinks he has another boundary for the taking, but this is slightly wider and bounces a touch extra. Takes the top endge for an easy catch towards Dhoni, but Chahar is so committed to it that Dhoni lets him take it. 11/1
16.2 to R Tewatia, that is out. Tewatia has been swiping across the line too often here. Given out lbw but he has reviewed it. He has missed a plum full toss, and is hit on the toe. The only question is, if it is angling down. it isn't. He has burnt the review. 167/5
16.6 to R Parag, another wicket for Curran as Parag looks to run this down to the other side of short third man. This is short of a length, he has run his fingers on it. Parag opens the face and gets only an edge that is falling in front of Dhoni. The ball nearly pops out of his hands but he does well to hold on. 173/6
18.2 to SPD Smith, S Curran has another wicket. Smith has looked out of gas for a wee while now. He looks to whip a length ball to leg but gets no power behind the shot. Caught at deep midwicket. CSK back into this if there is dew later tonight. 178/7
11.4 to SV Samson, and they finally get rid of Samson. Ngidi keeps hiding the ball from Samson. No pace on, and wide outside off. Samson still thinks of hitting this over cover for six, but he doesn't get the timing. Off the toe end it goes for a catch to deep cover. What a lovely innings from Samson. 132/2
14.1 to RV Uthappa, Uthappa tries to hit him for another six, chips down the track, but gets too close to the ball and hence can't get the elevation he needs. This is timed well, but straight and low to du Plessis at long-off. Disappointing effort from Uthappa. 149/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 10.00)200/6
Fall of wickets: 1-56 (Shane Watson, 6.4 ov), 2-58 (Murali Vijay, 7.3 ov), 3-77 (Sam Curran, 8.5 ov), 4-77 (Ruturaj Gaikwad, 8.6 ov), 5-114 (Kedar Jadhav, 13.4 ov), 6-179 (Faf du Plessis, 18.5 ov)
18.5 to F du Plessis, du Plessis woke the sleeping giant up. Archer bowls the quick bouncer this time, and it is too quick for him. Top edge onto his body, and lobs up for a simple catch for Samson. One thing du Plessis has done through this innings: announce that he can hit clean when he wants to. 179/6
7.3 to M Vijay, a sleepy little knock from Vijay comes to an end. He has hit in the air for a second time without the conviction of hitting a six. He looks to pull this slightly short ball, but goes only as far as deep square leg. 58/2
13.4 to KM Jadhav, when it is your evening, it is your night. Now Samson takes an amazing one-handed catch to send Jadhav back. Slower short ball, offcutter, Jadhav throws his bat at it, gets a top edge, and Samson leaps to his right to pluck a one-hander. 114/5
6.4 to SR Watson, timber. Tewatia gets the wicket to ease off some pressure. Watson knows they can't have three singles in a row. He goes back to pull another slider, and this is perhaps not short enough. It squeezes under the bat, hits the pad, and cannons into the leg stump. 56/1
8.5 to SM Curran, and Tewatia has done for Curran. Too many risks he is taking, and has jumped of the crease again. Tewatia slows it down further, and goes wider to beat him. Easy stumping for Samson. Curran goes for a six-ball 17, a very Curran score. 77/3
8.6 to RD Gaikwad, and Tewatia is on a hat-trick. Another stumping for Samson. Gaikwad skips out first ball, Tewatia bowls wide outside off to beat him easily. Tewatia is elated. Celebrates with fingers in his ear. Not sure if he had been given some lip when he was batting. 77/4
