4.3 overs (1 Run) Slower one again, full and around off, some extra bounce, Ruturaj Gaikwad tries to defend but it takes the shoulder of his bat and rolls in the gap at covers. They cross.
4.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Muscled down the ground! Harshal bowls it short and wide outside off, Ruturaj Gaikwad shuffles across the stumps a bit and whacks it past the bowler and mid off for a boundary. A slower one picked nicely.
4.2 overs (1 Run) Short in length and outside off, Ruturaj Gaikwad plays it late but finds short third man. It's a no ball for overstepping. Free Hit coming...

Harshal Patel is now brought into the attack. He replaces Mohammed Siraj (2-0-13-0).
3.6 overs (6 Runs) SIX! Dismissed! What a wonderful way to finish the over! Loopy delivery, full and landing on middle, doesn't matter it's a googly or leg spinner, Ruturaj Gaikwad is down the track in a flash, reaches the pitch of the ball immediately and launches it over long on. 10 from the over, Chennai have raced to 35 in 4 overs.

Faf du Plessis is unhappy with the movement around the sightscreen. This is the second time that Mohammed Siraj has been stopped mid-way through his delivery stride due to movement behind him. The umpire sorts it out and the play can go on.
