Full around off. Faf suffles inside his stumps and uses his wrists to flick it though mid-wicket for two.

FOUR! Nicely played! Du Plessi comes down the track and takes it as a very low full toss. He hits it to the right of mid off. The fielder dives but cannot get anything on it.
4.2 overs (1 Run)
Follows the boundary with a single towards third man. Good cricket.

FOUR! Lovely timing. He is a class act to watch. Slightly overpitched on off, Gaikwad leans beautifully and just pushes it right of the middle of his bat through covers for a boundary.
Change of ends for Mohammed Shami too.

SIX! Nice premediation from du Plessis. Full ball on off and middle, Faf moves to the leg side and scoops it well over the keeper’s head and well over fine leg.
3.3 overs (2 Runs)
DROPPED! Not an easy catch at all. Fullish ball on the stumps, du Plessis looks to clobber this over the bowler’s head. However, he ends up miscuing it. The ball goes high in the air towards long on. Two fielder converge. Hooda gets under it but it goes through his grasp. The batters take a couple.

Full toss outside off, it was off-pace. Ruturaj taps it through point. There was always two as it was hit to the longer part of the ground. Gaikwad comes back for the second.
2.5 overs (6 Runs)
SIX! So often these young batsmen come down the ground and still control the shot well, for a boundary. Shortish ball on middle, Gaikwad comes down the track and heaves it over deep square leg for a biggie.

Short ball, Ruturaj goes for the pull. Does not time it well but gets it over the infield, for a couple.

5 WIDES! Ohh dear, 5 dot balls and now this, for Shami. He bowls a good length ball well outside leg, trying to go for the inswinger. No chance either for the batsman or the keeper. It goes well wide of everybody to the fine leg fence for 5 runs off extras.

0.6 over (4 Runs)
FOUR! Just beats the fielder for a boundary. Outside off on a good length, du Plessis stands tall and punches this through the covers. It is to the right of the sweeper cover fielder, Ravi Bishnoi. Ravi runs in that direction, puts in the dive but it sneaks under him and touches the ropes.
0.5 over (0 Run)
Full and around off, defended back to the bowler.
0.4 over (0 Run)
Outside off, left alone.

WIDE! Slips one down the leg side, Faf misses his flick. Rahul takes it and appeals for a caught behind, mostly to distract the umpire. His ploy fails as it is wided.
0.3 over (1 Run)
A single and Chennai are underway in the chase. Full and outside off, Rutu opens the face of his bat to guide this to deep point. Takes a single and gets off the mark.

Chennai’s openers are Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis. For Punjab, James Neesham will start off with the ball. Here we go then…
