Dindigul 123/4 after 13 overs
...
Vivek hit one straight up, high into the night sky but the fielder at long-on fails to hold onto the catch. That was really tough as it went very high and despite being in position, the ball went through the fielder's palms and into the chest. The over was relatively quiet but a wide on the last ball of the over meant Dindigul got an extra ball and Mohammed made full use of it and added another boundary.

Dindigul 91/3 after 10 overs

Jesuraj, bowling his third over, was spot on from the very first delivery and the pressure on Dindigul batsmen intensifies. A boundary and three singles to show for.

...
Dinidgul 62/3 after 8 overs

Davidson got the first one correct, well, almost, but the umpire turned down the LBW appeal. The third delivery was full and wide, Chaturved slashed hard and earned a maximum. The fourth one was a bit shorter and Chaturved cleverly guided it through the slip region for a boundary. But Davidson got his revenge as the batsman played it directly in the hands of the fielder at point on the very next delivery. His second wicket in as many overs.

NS Chaturved c Srinivasan b Athisayaraj Davidson 11 (9) 
...
Skipper Jagadeesan is looking confident here. He dispatched the first ball over the bowler's head for a boundary and then smacked one to the mid-wicket boundary for another four which forced the bowler to come across the wicket. There was a huge mix-up on the fourth delivery but Tuti wicketkeeper didn't collect the ball cleanly. 10 runs from the over.

Dindigul 24/1 after 3 overs
...
Ganesh Moorthi to bowl the third over.
...
Chaturved, the new batsman in, plays out the remaining two deliveries without troubling the scorers.

Dindigul 14/1 after 2 overs
...
Davidson, with his Maliga-esque action, tried to get the yorker from the very delivery and paid the price for it as Nishanth opened his account with a boundary. However, the bowler kept going and dismantled Nishanth's wicket on the very next delivery.

C Hari Nishanth b Athisayaraj Davidson 4 (3) 
...
Athisayaraj Davidson to share the new ball.
...
After two dots on the first two deliveries, skipper Jagadeesan uses the pace of the ball and guides the ball to the third man boundary. He follows it up with a sweep which earned him another boundary. Good first over.

Dindigul 9/0 after 1 over
...
Dindigul's chase is about to begin as N Jagadeesan and C Hari Nishanth come out in the middle. Malolan Rangarajan gets the new ball for Tuti.
...
Dindigul Dragons need 178 runs to win. 

We will be back for the chase in around 15 minutes
...
At one point, it looked like Tuti won't be able to cross the 140-run mark because of the loss of five early wickets. But, Malolan Rangarajan and R Sathish played two stunning innings to take Tuti to 177. Sathish top-scored with 74 while Malolan accounted for 37. This is a brilliant recovery from Tuti.

Sathish's gem of an innings comes to end as he miscues a slog and got a top-edge. The bowler ran around 10 yards to complete the catch.

R Sathish c and b M Silambarasan 74 (41)
...
R Rohit concedes a six off the first ball of the 20th over and has rushed off the field due to an injury. M Silambarasan to finish off the last over.
