Umesh Yadav403609.00126110
Piyush Chawla402626.5091100
4.4 to BB McCullum, wrong 'un does him in! Drew him forward with the length and then the pitch offers just enough turn, at just enough pace to beat Baz. Defends down the wrong line, struck in front. Oh, but was there an inside edge? McCullum's reaction suggests as much.... 42/1
12.6 to DJ Bravo, too easy! Reward for baiting the batsman with flight. He threw this one up and wide. Duped the batsman into thinking it was overpitched. Bravo wanted extra cover again. But ends up giving a dolly to long-off. 88/5
Brad Hogg401814.5091000
18.5 to RA Jadeja, he deserves that! Slid in the quicker, flatter delivery as he saw Jaddu running at him. No room to work the ball. All he can do is try and stop it from passing him. But since he wanted to belt the ball, he's in two minds. Uncertain prod does him in. 124/6
Andre Russell402626.50122040
9.3 to SK Raina, soft dismissal. Shortish and outside off, the typical ball every batsman wants to run down to third man. Only this time there seems a bit more zip on it and Raina edges it behind, Cross-seamer it would seem. 67/3
11.3 to MS Dhoni, that's the bouncer and he's got him! He's not been good on the short ball. Not when they're fast and rising above his ribs. Dhoni got inside the line to hammer it away past long leg. But only ends up with a feather to the keeper. Big wicket, and Russell celebrates it as such. 81/4

Ishwar Pandey201819.0062110
0.2 to G Gambhir, well, well, this is quite the eventful start, Gamhir gone second ball to an age-old failing, fishes outside off to a back of a length ball, no footwork, nibbles it through to the keeper, the Chennai crowd goes wild, cries of 'CSK CSK' ring around the ground. 1/1
Ashish Nehra403819.5074100
18.5 to UT Yadav, tail ender in sight, bowl full and straight, he misses, you hit. Nehra's made up for those two big hits earlier in the over. 116/9
Mohit Sharma302418.0053010
12.2 to SA Yadav, too quick for him and Bravo has pulled off a stunner running in from long-on! Chepaulk blows its lid! Goes on the pull, but this skids off the deck and gets on him far too early. Gets it on the splice. Bravo raced in. So did the man from Faf from long-off. Both men dived, but Bravo managed not to be distracted and pulls off a brilliant, low catch. Sparks wild celebrations. 76/4
Ravichandran Ashwin20522.5080000
5.1 to RV Uthappa, Baz again! Pulls off a smart catch and turns an ordinary ball into a wicket-taking one. It was short, it could have been belted through the off side, but Uthappa wants to drag it. Finds short midwicket. 52/2
7.1 to MK Pandey, deep midwicket, here you go, says Pandey. Tossed up outside off, lunges forward and sweeps. But it seems more of a top edge than anything. Bravo barely has anything to do. 61/3
Ravindra Jadeja301103.66101000
Suresh Raina301204.0080010
Dwayne Bravo302237.3382100
15.2 to YK Pathan, slower ball does the trick and Bravo's off on a jig. It's a bit short so Yusuf loaded up on the pull, but he is a bit overeager. Manages an inside edge that disturbs the stumps. 91/5
17.1 to PJ Cummins, picks out deep midwicket! Seems a slower ball and he's slogged it down Jadeja's throat. 101/7
17.5 to PP Chawla, standing outside the crease, races down the pitch and miscues the ball straight up. Dhoni rushes up, calls for it and takes a skier. And is promptly bear-hugged by Bravo. 104/8
