15.4OUTRavindra Jadeja to S Nadeem, out Caught by Raina!! Chennai win by 93 runs. Nadeem dances down the track to a well flighted delivery, does not get to the pitch of the ball and ends up driving it towards extra cover. Raina gets across and completes a simple catch, his 3rd for the innings. S Nadeem c Raina b Ravindra Jadeja 3(8)84/9
14.2OUTAshwin to Shami, out Caught by Brendon McCullum!! Another wicket falls, this was tossed up and well outside off, Shami's eyes lit up as he saw the flight, lofts it towards long off where McCullum completes a simple catch. Shami c Brendon McCullum b Ashwin 1(3)82/8
13.5OUTRavindra Jadeja to Neesham, out Caught by Raina!! Catching practice for Raina. Neesham had to go for the big shots, this was right in the slot, Neesham gets forward and heaves it straight into the hands of Raina at mid-wicket. He doesn't drop those, Delhi lose their seventh wicket. Neesham c Raina b Ravindra Jadeja 22(15) [4s-2]80/7
12.1OUTAshwin to D Karthik, out Bowled!! Knocked him over! The last hope of Delhi falls. This was tossed up and on the middle stumps line, Karthik was making room as he looked to play with an open face. The ball slides past the outside edge and crashes into the stumps. This is all too easy for Chennai at the moment. D Karthik b Ashwin 21(22) [4s-2]74/6
12FOURRavindra Jadeja to Neesham, FOUR, poor bowling from Jadeja, he fires this one short and wide outside off, it was the quicker ball as well. Neesham waits on it, uses the pace on the ball and cuts it past point for another boundary74/5
11.5FOURRavindra Jadeja to Neesham, FOUR, flatter and just outside off, Neesham gets forward and tonks it high and wide of mid-wicket for a much needed boundary70/5
