Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
18.2FOURFaulkner to Ashwin, FOUR, edged and four! Chennai will take them in whichever way they come, fuller and slanted outside off, Ashwin goes for a booming drive, gets an outside edge to the third man fence125/6
16.4FOURD Kulkarni to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, a much needed boundary for Chennai, they require plenty more of this, short of length just outside off, Jadeja gets on top of the bounce and pulls it between deep mid wicket and long on113/6
14.5OUTR Bhatia to Manhas, out Caught by Nayar!! Chennai lose another one and Bhatia strikes again. This was length delivery outside off, it was not short enough for Manhas to play the cut, he still goes through with it, does not keep it down and finds Nayar at backward point. Manhas c Nayar b R Bhatia 10(10) [4s-1]101/6
13.1FOURTambe to Manhas, FOUR, excellent shot! A nice way to start off proceedings after the break, tossed up just outside off, Manhas backs away slightly and lofts it inside out between deep extra cover and long off89/5
11.2FOURTambe to Ravindra Jadeja, FOUR, quicker delivery on leg-stump, Jadeja glances it to the fine leg fence, Binny does not even bother to chase it78/5
11.1OUTTambe to Dhoni, out Caught by Faulkner!! Chennai in a spot of bother, Rajasthan all over them. Tambe gets rid of the Indian skipper. A flighted delivery on middle and leg, Dhoni shimmies down the wicket and clips it uppishly to deep square leg, Faulkner does not move an inch as he collects it easily. Dhoni c Faulkner b Tambe 5(8)74/5

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
19.5OUTAshwin to D Kulkarni, out Tambe Run Out!! 1 run completed, huge mix-up has helped Chennai clinch the game, Dhoni can heave a sigh of relief now, it was fired in full on middle, Kulkarni bunts it to long on and immediately calls for the second, but Tambe was too slow to respond and in the end du Plessis' throw was too good at the bowler's end and Tambe had no chance of making it to the crease. Tambe run out (du Plessis/Ashwin) 2(2)133/10
19.4SIXAshwin to D Kulkarni, SIX, this game is not over yet, Kulkarni is making it into a thriller, well tossed up again from round the wicket, Kulkarni gets down and effortlessly slog sweeps it straight into the stands over deep mid wicket132/9
19.2SIXAshwin to D Kulkarni, SIX, he's just managed to clear the fence between midwicket and long on, tossed up and turning in, Kulkarni gets down and slog sweeps it across the line, it just went over the lurking fielder in the deep124/9
18.3OUTHilfenhaus to R Bhatia, out Caught by Ashwin!! Rajasthan's last hope holes out, slower delivery just outside off, Bhatia was looking to pull it away over midwicket, but the ball takes the outer half of the bat and goes up in the air towards point, where Ashwin settles under it comfortably. R Bhatia c Ashwin b Hilfenhaus 23(20) [4s-1 6s-1]113/9
17FOURRavindra Jadeja to R Bhatia, FOUR, that is a fine shot from Bhatia and suddenly the Rajasthan dug-out sense something, drags it too short, Bhatia quickly goes back and pulls it away to deep square leg107/8
16.3SIXRavindra Jadeja to R Bhatia, SIX, he's hit that straight into the stands, 100 up for Rajasthan, well tossed up, Bhatia uses his feet to good effect and hits it straight over the bowler's head to long on101/8
