19.2OUTNehra to Kohli, out Bowled!! Nehra has bowled Kohli out. Another good yorker, tailing in on leg, Kohli jams it out, but it brushes the pad and then rolls back onto the stumps. No real celebration this time from Nehra. Just calmly looks at the batsman who walks off. Kohli b Nehra 73(49) [4s-2 6s-5]150/6
19.1SIXNehra to Kohli, SIX, that is a massive hit. Comes down and takes it on a length, swipes high and handsome over deep mid-wicket. Really got under it well and ensured he got maximum power into the shot150/5
18.1SIXMohit Sharma to Kohli, SIX, just over the leaping Jadeja at deep mid-wicket. Kohli swung hard at a length ball and just about timed it to evade Jaddu who leapt high, wanted to palm it back, so that he could come back in play again and catch it, ala Pollard, but fails to even get a finger on it. Another six to start the over138/5
17.4OUTNehra to de Villiers, out Bowled!! What.A.Man Nehra is! Look at that celebration. A big roar, accompanied by a vigorous fist pump to send the world's best batsman - at least in my book he is - back to the dugout. Superb yorker from the experienced Delhi man, right on middle, de Villiers swung across the line, missed and the ball slid under the bat to shatter the stumps. He is a wicket-taking bowler alright and he still can produce those yorkers. All those Nehra doubters can eat humble pie. de Villiers b Nehra 10(6) [4s-2]130/5
17.3FOURNehra to de Villiers, FOUR, no-one on the deep mid-wicket fence and though de Villiers completely mistimed the slog, he got it over short mid-wicket and then the ball rolled over the rope130/4
17.1FOURNehra to Kohli, FOUR, low full toss on the stumps, thumped away to the deep mid-wicket fence. He hit that really hard. Good start to the over125/4

17.4SIXJakati to du Plessis, SIX, that will do nicely for Chennai. They have thrashed Bangalore. Also improved their NRAJ. Fifty for du Plessis and he does it in style. Dancing down and lifting it over long-off. A great way to finish the game off. Chennai break their losing streak of three games on the bounce as well with this win160/2
17.2SIXJakati to Dhoni, SIX, immense power that, Dhoni came forward and then rocked back, flat-batted it over long-on. Generated all the power and somehow sent the ball flying over the fence. He wants to end the game quickly153/2
17.1FOURJakati to Dhoni, FOUR, heaved wide of short fine inside the ring and that will be a boundary. Came right off the bottom of the blade, but he found the gap147/2
16.2FOURStarc to Dhoni, FOUR, Kohli is very straight at long-off, Dhoni drills it wide of him and he has no chance of cutting that off. That wasn't well timed, but the important thing was he placed it in the gap138/2
16FOURYuvraj to Dhoni, FOUR, Dhoni has killed the game off. In just 5 balls. Nails the pull, beating deep square to his left. Hit it really hard and that's 22 runs off the over. Could've been so much better for Bangalore, if only Takawale had collected the ball and whipped the bails off in the opening delivery of the over. Now it's a cakewalk for Chennai.133/2
15.3SIXYuvraj to Dhoni, SIX, even better. Much bigger and higher too. Again Dhoni skips down the track and belts it way back over the bowler's head. The ball kept soaring and soaring and landed over the sightscreen. That is the perfect way to reply to a missed chance. The game is slowly but surely slipping away from Bangalore127/2
