19.4OUTMohit Sharma to R Bhatia, out Caught by Dwayne Smith!! Mohit Sharma gives Bhatia as dose of his own medicine. Slower one outside off, Bhatia early into the big blow, he looks to go over the off-side after stepping out, Smith jogs forward from long-off, steadies himself and snaffles the take. Bhatia completely miscued it, the ball skewed off the base of the bat to the West Indian.R Bhatia c Dwayne Smith b Mohit Sharma 7(4) [4s-1]147/8
19.2FOURMohit Sharma to R Bhatia, FOUR, it's real teaser for Vijay Shankar, he runs back, slides but only deflects it to the backward square leg fence. This was a length delivery on middle and leg, Bhatia charges down the track and slogs it away between backward square leg and short fine leg145/7
18.3OUTRavindra Jadeja to Binny, out Caught by du Plessis!! Ravindra Jadeja has his second of the over. Binny came down the track, wasn't to the pitch and his big shot, results in a tame mishit, which du Plessis grabs running in from long-on. Jadeja does the double fist pump. Binny c du Plessis b Ravindra Jadeja 22(17) [6s-2]137/7
18.1OUTRavindra Jadeja to Faulkner, out Bowled!! Clean-up job from Ravindra Jadeja. Quicker from Ravindra Jadeja, gripped on the surface and beat Faulkner's attempted whip to leg. The batsman was early into the shot, off the pad and uproots leg stump. Jadeja has his arms stretched in joy. Faulkner b Ravindra Jadeja 1(4)136/6
17.2OUTMohit Sharma to S Smith, out Bowled!! Mohit Sharma again comes back well and dismisses a batsman after getting hit for a boundary off the previous delivery. Must say Smith dug his own grave there, tried to reverse paddle after making room, exposed his leg stump and Mohit hit the stump with uncanny precision. S Smith b Mohit Sharma 9(8) [4s-1]133/5
17.1FOURMohit Sharma to S Smith, FOUR, too many slower balls from Mohit Sharma and Smith has picked it. Opens the face and goes over cover133/4

19.2SIXFaulkner to Dhoni, SIX, you bet ya he will try his best! What a shot that is! Ranchi crowd go nuts. Picks the slower delivery and heaves it over wide long-on. Lots of bottom-hand in that shot and the critical thing about that shot was that Dhoni was waiting for the slower delivery, by hanging deep in his crease. What will Faulkner do now?144/5
18.3SIXK Cooper to Ravindra Jadeja, SIX, what if Dhoni hasn't put it away to the fence, Ravindra Jadeja will. That's what he seems to say after dancing down the wicket and smashing the slower delivery way back into the stands at long-off. Picked the slower ball really well and that is a very crucial hit in the circumstances. Will Cooper continue with the slower deliveries?132/5
17.3OUTFaulkner to du Plessis, out Bowled!! That is the perfect yorker. If you want to see a pin-point yorker, you have to watch this dismissal. Full, fast and aiming at the base of middle, du Plessis could do nothing as the ball crashed into the stumps, after squeezing under his bat. Faulkner is pumped. A vital blow in the context of the game. du Plessis b Faulkner 38(39) [4s-2]121/5
16FOURTambe to Dhoni, FOUR, Tambe spoils a very good over until then with a terrible delivery, short and down the leg-side, all it needed was some bat and Dhoni plays the vertical bat sweep past the keeper112/4
14.5OUTR Bhatia to Ashwin, out Bowled!! Knocked him over. The slowness of Bhatia deceiving Ashwin there. Came on very slowly, Ashwin - as have so many batsmen before him today - played the slog too early, the ball came much later and knocked out the leg stump. Ashwin b R Bhatia 14(16) [4s-1]105/4
12.3FOURR Bhatia to Ashwin, FOUR, Ashwin gets a boundary. And a vital one for Chennai needed that. Down on one knee and slogs the slower delivery to the deep mid wicket fence. Connected that really well91/3
