20OUTBalaji to Dhoni, out Caught by R Dhawan at long-off!! Balaji gets Dhoni off the last delivery. Low full toss, deserved to go into the stands, but Dhoni's loft finds Dhawan who flings the ball away in anger after taking the catch. Chennai end up on 205. Dhoni c R Dhawan b Balaji 26(11) [4s-3 6s-1]205/4
19.5FOURBalaji to Dhoni, FOUR, a swat. After coming down the wicket. Picks the shortish bouncer and employs a strong bottom-handed shot that scurries across the turf, one bounce over the ropes, beating Maxwell's desperate dive205/3
19.3SIXBalaji to Dwayne Bravo, SIX, that is a trademark Dwayne Bravo hit. Picks the low full toss and goes over point with a calypso whip off the wrists. All wrists and the ball sails over the fielder. That ball had unbelievable timing behind it200/3
19.1SIXBalaji to Dhoni, SIX, that has gone into the Chennai dug-out. Or are those yellow-clad people Chennai fans? Could be the latter. Length outside off, pummelled way over long-on. The white ball soared and soared193/3
18.4OUTAwana to Raina, out Caught by Sehwag at short fine leg!! The intention was right to play the stroke, but the execution was wrong. He moved a bit slowly, was off-balance when he played the scoop and tamely played it to short fine's hands. Sehwag takes the catch and flaunts that trademark smile, which one hasn't seen on the cricket field for some time now. Raina c Sehwag b Awana 24(19) [4s-2]185/3
17FOURBalaji to Dhoni, FOUR, brilliant batting. Low full toss outside off again and Dhoni knows he has to get bat on it to beat Pujara inside the ring, does so and he has raced to 10 off 3 balls.172/2

16.5OTHERRavindra Jadeja to D Miller, 2 runs, nudged off the pads to deep square leg, placed in the gap, a couple of runs189/4
16.4SIXRavindra Jadeja to D Miller, SIX, just over Dwayne Smith at long-off. Off the toe-end of the bat as D Miller gave the charge, it looked like Smith will haul it back in, but it eluded his right-hand as he stretched back to take it187/4
16.3SIXRavindra Jadeja to D Miller, SIX, now D Miller is doing it. A couple of steps out and then hammered way over long-on. Struck it really cleanly and that will further pressurise Chennai181/4
16FOURDwayne Smith to D Miller, FOUR, superbly done. Waited on it till the last second and opened the face of the bat to get it wide of short third. Dwayne Smith is down on his knees. 16 came off that over - another big one for Punjab172/4
15.4OUTDwayne Smith to Maxwell, out Bowled!! Dwayne Smith bowls out Maxwell. That was a wicket-taking delivery. Deserved a wicket too. Brilliant yorker, tailed in late and though Maxwell tried to jam his bat down, the ball crept underneath to knock out leg stump. Maxwell b Dwayne Smith 95(43) [4s-15 6s-2]167/4
15.3FOURDwayne Smith to Maxwell, FOUR, bad bowling and Dwayne Smith pays the price. With short fine inside the ring, he bowls one on the pads, Maxwell flicks over that man and moves to 95. Just a hit away from a 100167/3
