Suresh Raina and David Hussey were helping Chennai Super Kings (CSK) run away with the match against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Eliminator of IPL 2014. Jasprit Bumrah bowled the 17th over, and went for a boundary off the second ball of the over by Hussey. Four runs were scored off the next four balls as CSK were left with just 14 runs to score off three overs to progress to the Qualifier 2.

Pragyan Ojha came on to bowl the 16th over of the innings and was immediately hit to all ends of Brabourne Stadium. After giving a single off the first ball, he was hit for two sixes by Hussey before Raina hit another six off the final delivery to make it 20 runs off the over.

Earlier, Suresh Raina and David Hussey looked solid. Praveen Kumar came on to bowl the 15th over. He started with a single to David Hussey, before Suresh Raina took consecutive twos off the next couple of balls. David Hussey ended the over with a six so that at the end of the over, CSK needed 42 off 30 balls.

Jasprit Bumrah came on to bowl the 14th over. After going for 17 runs in his first over, he went for a boundary off the first ball of the over courtesy David Hussey. He followed it up with two dot balls in a row before Hussey took him for a single. Bumrah bowled a good short ball of the next delivery which Raina duly evaded. Raina hit a boundary off the final ball to make it nine runs off the over.

Harbhajan Singh came on to bowl his final over of the match. David Hussey and Suresh Raina showed him due respect by just taking singles off his over. Six singles came in Harbhajan’s final over, for him to end with good figures of two for 27 in four overs.

Earlier, Suresh Raina looked solid. Pragyan Ojha bowled the 12th over of the innings. He started off well, conceding just five off the first three deliveries. He then bowled three dot balls in a row to stifle the scoring of CSK.

Harbhajan Singh bowled the 11th over, and went for just two off the first three balls. Suresh Raina broke the shackles with a six off the fourth delivery, to get the 666th six of IPL 7. CSK scored just nine off the over, as they cruised to the total.

Pragyan Ojha came on to bowl the 10th over of the innings. After McCullum was dropped off the second ball of the over — the ball also went for six — he was stumped by Aditya Tare off a delighted Ojha. New man David Hussey got a single off the first ball. Another dot ball off the final ball meant that just nine runs were scored off the over.

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings went hammer and tongs at Mumbai Indians bowlers in the early overs  and had raced to 60 for no loss in absolutely no time at all. Just like his counterpart MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma also turned to his spinners and for wickets and he was immediately rewarded from the wrists of the wily old hands of Harbhajan Singh. Both batsmen fell in identical fashion. First Smith went big on the leg side but only found the massive palms of Kieron Pollard.

Corey Anderson was brought back for a few more overs and Anderson’s New Zealand skipper had a taste of the fury of the burly compatriot when the ball hit his grill and broke his helmet. The double strike had certainly rocked the former champions and a bit of caution was thrown at the crease before Suresh Raina spanked to the covers for a boundary.  Harbhajan continued be menacing. The wicket was turning but McCullum calmed the nerves with a colossal six over long-off.
