CHENNAI INNINGS:

Over 20 || Score 135/8

36 needed off 6, Dinda to bowl the last over. Morkel smashes the first ball straight into the hands of Finch at long off! Ashwin is the new man in. Second ball is a dot ball. Ashwin works the third ball past third man for a boundary after making some room for himself. Ashwin plays an upper cut off the fourth ball for a couple at third-man. The fifth one takes an edge from Ashwin's bat and runs for another boundary at third man! Ashwin manages a single off the last ball. So Pune Warriors India have done a miracle, the biggest upset of this year’s IPL has been witnessed at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk as Pune defeat Chennai by 24 runs.

Ravichandran Ashwin 11*(5b), Chris Morris 5* (5b)

JA Morkel c Finch b Dinda 13 (11b)

====================================================================================

Over 19 || Score 124/7

Bhuvan to bowl the penultimate over. Morris takes a single off the first ball. Morkel can’t score runs off the second which is a good length ball. Morkel works the third one towards wide of long off for a couple. The fourth one is a full-toss and Morkel works that towards long on for a single. Morris manages a single off the fifth ball. And Morkel manages a single off the last ball to keep the strike, 36 needed off the last over. CSK need more than a miracle to win this one. Six runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 18 || Score 118/7

Dinda brought back into the attack. And guess what! Dhoni is OUT! After facing a yorker for no run, Dhoni got one full with width on offer and he went for it, but the ball is chasing Steven Smith who takes a good catch at long off! Four runs from the over, and Chennai now need 42 runs from 12 balls! Can Morkel do an encore of what he did against the RCB last year?

MS Dhoni c Smith b Dinda 10 (13b)

====================================================================================

Over 17 || Score 114/6

Marsh into his final over. Morkel decides to take a chance, length ball and Morkel smashes that extremely high over long on FOR A SIX! Ten runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 16 || Score 104/6

Rahul Sharma into his final over. He has been exceptional with his line and length today and has been finally rewarded as Bravo takes a chance, attempts a shot to clear long off, but the ball falls well short, into the safe hands of Steven Smith once again! Albie Morkel comes to the crease. His team desperately needs a cameo from him. Five runs from the over.

DJ Bravo c Smith b Sharma 1 (4b)

====================================================================================

Over 15 || Score 99/5

Marsh into his third over. Marsh bowls a slow short ball and Jadeja hits it straight to Dinda at short fine leg! Dwayne Bravo is the new batsman. Four runs from the over.

RA Jadeja c Dinda b Marsh 27 (22b)

====================================================================================

Over 14 || Score 95/4

Sharma into his third over. MS Dhoni is the new man in. He has a small chat with Jadeja. The results are evident as Jadeja spanks the second ball straight down the ground for a SIX! Nine runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 13 || Score 86/4

Marsh brought back into the attack. Jadeja plays a slog sweep over midwicket for a boundary! And then a fine innings from Badrinath comes to an end as he charges down the wicket and hits the ball straight to Steven Smith at long off! Badrinath has reconstructed the innings to some extent. Eight runs from the over.

S Badrinath c Smith b Marsh 34 (26b)

====================================================================================

Over 12 || Score 78/3

Rahul Sharma into his second over. Four runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 11 || Score 74/3

Nayar into his third over. He begins with a slower one and Badrinath picks that early and sweeps that to deep midwicket for a boundary! Eleven runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 10 || Score 63/3

Rahul Sharma brought back into the attack. Six runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 9 || Score 57/3

Nayar to bowl his second over. Another good over from Nayar, he bowling them at quick pace and with a lot of variation. Three runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 8 || Score 54/3

Aaron Finch has been brought into the attack. The last ball is a short one and Badrinath spanks that to deep midwicket for a boundary! That boundary also brings the fifty for Chennai. Nine runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 7 || Score 45/3

Abhishek Nayar comes into the attack. And Murali Vijay tries to clear extra cover, fails and is caught at extra cover by Ross Taylor! Badrinath works the fifth ball past point for a boundary! Two runs and a wicket for Nayar in his first over.

M Vijay c Taylor b Nayar 24 (22b)

====================================================================================

Over 6 || Score 38/2

Mitchell Marsh brought into the attack. The second delivery is a wayward one and Badrinath guides that to fine leg for a boundary! The fourth ball is a fuller one and Vijay stands and delivers, clobbers that high over long on for a SIX! Thirteen runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 5 || Score 25/2

Bhuvan to continue. And he gets another wicket this time a big one of Suresh Raina! Raina was looking to play a pull shot, didn’t connect and the ball went straight to Suman once again, who took it this time. Badrinath is the new batsman. Three runs from the over, Bhuvan has been outstanding so far.

SK Raina c Suman b Kumar 8 (10b)

====================================================================================

Over 4 || Score 22/1

Dinda to continue. And he fires a short one, Vijay pulls and he scores a boundary at deep square leg! The fine leg was in and Vijay works the next ball past the short fine leg fielder for a boundary! Twelve runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 3 || Score 10/1

Bhuvan to continue. Another excellent over, ten runs from it.

====================================================================================

Over 2 || Score 7/1

Dinda to bowl the second over. And Suman drops a sitter at mid on! It was a short ball and Vijay hit it straight to Suman, and you won’t get an easier catch than that! Raina pulls the last ball for a boundary at square leg! Seven from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 1 || Score 0/1

Murali Vijay and Anirudha to open for CSK, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar to bowl the first over. And Anirudha is Out for a duck! It was a good length ball that swung in and Anirudha had no clue about that one. Suresh Raina is the new batsman. And he survives a close lbw shout off the first ball. Terrific start for Pune and a wicket maiden for Bhuvan!

S Anirudha lbw b Kumar 0 (2b)

====================================================================================

Over 20 || Score 159/5

Bravo to bowl his final over. Smith smacks the second ball over third man for a six off a reverse-sweep! What a shot! That reminds you of one of the shots AB de Villiers played against Dale Steyn last year. The fourth ball is slightly short and this time Manish Pandey smashes that to deep cover for a boundary! The fifth ball is a slower one, Pandey misses the length and is clean bowled! So that means CSK need to score 160 runs after a superb knock from Steven Smith who scored 39 from just 16 balls, an innings which had some of the best shots we have seen in this year’s IPL. Tweleve runs came from the last over and it’s time for Chennai batsmen to show what they can do after the bowlers had a not-so-good show at the ground.

MK Pandey b Bravo 9 (8b)

====================================================================================

Over 19 || Score 147/4

Nannes to bowl his final over. The third ball is pitched full and Smith clobbers that over deep square leg for a Six! The fourth ball has width on offer and Smith clears point for a boundary! Sixteen runs from the over. Nannes ends his forgettable spell. 4-0-42-0

====================================================================================

Over 18 || Score 131/4

Bravo to bowl his third over. The first ball is pitched short, Marsh makes some room and cuts that straight to Albie Morkel at deep backward point! Three runs and a wicket from the over.

MR Marsh c Morkel b Bravo 2 (4b)

====================================================================================

Over 17 || Score 128/3

Morris to bowl his final over. The first ball is pitched full and wide, and Taylor hits that straight to Jadeja at long on! Mitchell Marsh who scored a quickfire 38 in previous match comes to the crease. The last ball is a half volley and Smith smashes that over deep midwicket for a SIX! Ten runs from the over.

LRPL Taylor c Jadeja b Morris 8 (13b)

====================================================================================

Over 16 || Score 118/2

Bravo to bowl his second over. Smith charges down, gets an edge that flies to third man for a boundary! Smith follows it with a short ball and Smith pulls that to deep square leg for another boundary! Badrinath misses a run-out chance off the third ball as Smith ran for a quick single. Twelve runs from the over. The Chennai bowlers, apart from Morris, have been struggling.

====================================================================================

Over 15 || Score 106/2

Morris to bowl his second over. The first ball is pitched full, Uthappa tries to clear long on, fails and Jadeja takes an easy catch! So the openers are gone! Steven Smith comes to the crease. Many wanted to see him bat and there he is. Five runs from the over. The momentum has slowed down after Finch’s departure and one of these two batsmen will have to accelerate the innings.

RV Uthappa c Jadeja b Morris 26 (33b)

====================================================================================

Over 14 || Score 101/1

Ashwin to bowl his final over. Pune crossed the 100-run mark in that over. Four runs from it.

====================================================================================

Over 13 || Score 97/1

Jadeja brought back into the attack. Uthappa takes a single off the first ball and then Finch launches him for a Six over long on! He shimmies down the track off the third ball, misses and Dhoni does the rest! Jadeja strikes and CSK desperately needed this breakthrough! But it has been an entertaining innings from Finch who came as a replacement for injured Michael Clarke. Skipper Ross Taylor comes to the crease.

AJ Finch st Dhoni b Jadeja 67 (45b)

====================================================================================

Over 12 || Score 89/0

====================================================================================

Over 9 || Score 70/0

Chris Morris comes into the attack. The third ball is a short one and Finch pulls that for a boundary at deep square leg, the boundary also brings Finch’s fifty off 32 balls. Superb innings from the right-hander! Seven runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 1 || Score 13/0

Nannes to bowl the first over, Uthappa and Finch will open for Pune. Nannes begins with a Yorker, and Uthappa is off the mark with a single. The second ball is a fuller one and Finch hits that straight down the ground for a boundary! The third ball is pitched full and wide and Finch smashes that over mid on for another boundary! The fourth ball is a fuller one again and Finch gets an inside edge and that runs for the third boundary of the over! Nannes ends the over with a dot ball. Thirteen from the over.

====================================================================================

CSK vs PWI

After winning their previous match in dramatic fashion, two-time IPL winners Chennai Super Kings would want to register a convincing victory against the Pune Warriors India who continue to struggle in the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League.

Read full Preview»

Chennai won a dramatic nail-biter against Royal Challengers Bangalore when RP Singh bowled a no ball as CSK required two runs to win off the last ball. Jadeja played an upper cut off the last ball that went straight to the fielder at third man but it was a no-ball and the result was a shocker for RCB who had managed to take the match to the last ball. Openers Murali Vijay and Michael Hussey would want to get back to form against Pune Warriors after a disappointing show against Bangalore. The positive news for Chennai is the form of their pace attack as both Dirk Nannes and Chris Morris have done an excellent job with the new ball.

Pune Warriors on the other hand are under performing at the moment as they are second from the bottom in the rankings table, their only win coming against Rajasthan Royals on their home ground. Aaron Finch was the hero in that victory as he smashed 64 runs from 53 balls and was also adjudged the Man of the match. But he was bowled by Johnson off the first ball of the innings in their previous match. How badly the batsmen have performed can be ascertained from the fact that apart from Finch, none of the Pune Warriors batsmen have managed to score more than 40 runs in an innings in the last four matches.

Nice catch taken by Ricky Ponting against match -vs- Delhi Daredevils. Yesterday, Steve Smith also played a superb innings. But, I am in favour of Kolkata Knightriders & I hope they will be the Champion of the tournament
