010.210.2: Ravindra Jadeja to Harshal Patel, On the pads, knocked to the leg side. 
010.110.1: Ravindra Jadeja to AB de Villiers, OUT! TIMBER! Jadeja is making a mockery of this game. It seems like it is Jadeja vs Bangalore here, and not Chennai. He did it with the bat, and now he is doing it with the ball and out on the field. This is slightly shorter and lands on leg, AB de Villiers makes room and looks to work this one to the off side.

08.58.5: Ravindra Jadeja to Glenn Maxwell, OUT! TIMBER! Maxwell goes back now and Chennai are doing really well to take wickets at regular intervals. Bangalore are on the back foot here as they lose another wicket. It is also the big wicket of Maxwell and he would have wanted to stay out there for as long as he could. Bowls a full and floated ball on middle and leg, Glenn Maxwell goes on his knees and looks to slog this one to the leg side but he misses as the ball skids through slightly. Goes onto crash into the stumps behind. 113 more needed from 67 balls.

06.56.5: Ravindra Jadeja to AB de Villiers, NOT OUT! The foot was in from AB. This is tossed up and it is around off and middle, de Villiers looks to push this one away but he misses. Dhoni collects the ball and whips the bails off. Replays show that the foot was well in the crease. 
16.46.4: Ravindra Jadeja to Glenn Maxwell, Shortish and on middle, knocked through mid-wicket for a single. 
26.36.3: Ravindra Jadeja to Glenn Maxwell, Tossed up and around off, Maxwell steers this one through backward point for a couple. 
06.26.2: Ravindra Jadeja to Washington Sundar, OUT! TAKEN! Sundar's uncomfortable stay out in the middle comes to an end. He looked to be aggressive but he loses his wicket in the process. This is tossed up and he lands it around off, Washington Sundar skips down the track and slams this one towards the deep mid-wicket region. He gets the required elevation on this, but not the distance. Ruturaj Gaikwad settles under this one and takes the skier safely. 127 more needed in 82 balls. 
06.16.1: Ravindra Jadeja to Washington Sundar, Flatter and around off, Sundar pushes it back to the bowler.

05.55.5: Sam Curran to Glenn Maxwell, Nice change up for Curran. He bowls a shortish length ball around off, slower too, Glenn Maxwell leaves it be, thinking it could be a wide. But the umpire does not think so. A dot.

3 Overs | Runs : 44/1 | Run rate : 14.67
42.72.6: Deepak Chahar to Devdutt Padikkal, FOUR! Elegant batting from Padikkal! He has started off like a train. Short ball on the pads, Padikkal flays it past the short fine leg fielder for a boundary. 16 off this over.

The batters take one and decide that the second one is on the cards too. They run hard and come back as a throw is made to de Villiers, who whips the bails off.
