Watch cricket highlights - Chennai Super Kings vs Deccan Chargers from IPL 2009, the 2nd Leg.
Scoreline: Chennai 178/3 - MS Dhoni 58 (37), Matthew Hayden 43 (26), Suresh Raina 32 (19), Murali Vijay 31
Deccan Chargers 100 all out - Dwayne Smith 49 (23) - Shadab Jakati 4-22-4
The possibilities of the Matthew Hayden-Murali Vijay thing was on display today followed by Dhoni lifting himself up the order despite the lurking presence of Pragyan Ojha. Quiet to start with and still mesmerized by Ojha for the most part, Dhoni apart from a huge six off Pragyan opted to ease himself in as Raina took charge.The final Chennai assault however had the Dhoni the bulldozer at its forefront, playing one Dhoni shot after the other. Good stuff to watch, even for the non-Dhoni fans.
The Chargers pretty much were out of the chase after a duck farm at the top (1/3). Dwayne Smith however is definitely worth a watch with some of the best hits of the game. Jakati continued to hold batsmen in a Goa trance and the Chargers yoyo looks quite sodden at this point.
Recall: Deccan through a Gibbs 69 won during the 1st round between the two sides this season.
