20OUTKallis to Raina, out Raina Run Out!! 1 run completed. Very full and outside off, Raina drives it down to long off and Dhoni pushes him for the second. The throw comes in to de Villiers who misses the stumps in the first attempt but still manages to catch Raina short. Raina run out (J Botha/de Villiers) 45(34) [4s-5]152/6
19.4FOURKallis to Dhoni, FOUR, there comes the much needed boundary, it was full and wide outside off, Dhoni gets down on one knee and sweeps it through square leg for a boundary. Incredible shot.150/5
18.3FOURSteyn to Dhoni, FOUR, Hard to describe that shot. This has just been clubbed with immense power to the boundary. Not too short but Dhoni stays back and flat bats it hard over Steyn's head.139/5
18.1FOURSteyn to Dhoni, FOUR, first boundary for Dhoni. He picks this from a good length and swings it hard and flat through mid wicket. One bounce and over the ropes.133/5
18FOURKallis to Raina, FOUR, Raina makes them pay. Very full and on the leg, Raina whips it hard and right between deep mid wicket and long on. It was not a big gap but Raina pierces it to perfection with a lot of power.129/5
17.5DROPPEDKallis to Raina, 2 runs, catch dropped by Behardien. Banged in short by Kallis, Raina miscues the pull and skies it. Behardien gets into position at deep mid wicket but makes a mess of a simple chance.125/5
