Rajat Bhatia took two wickets. Chennai floundered the good start given by their top order batsmen and kept losing wickets after regular intervals after the strategy break. Subramaniam Badrinath got into momentum straightaway after the strategic break and hammered 45 runs in 34 balls. He was dismissed by Rajat Bhatia, just when he looked to get into his groove. Suresh Raina's innings of 32 runs was studded with two fours and two sixes. He was caught by Tillakaratne Dilshan at the deep mid-wicket trying to go for the maximum.
