Despite losing a wicket in the over, KB ensures that it is still a productive over as 11 runs came off that over.

Madurai 154/3 after 15 overs
...
SIX! The fall of wickets at the other end has done nothing to curb KB's aggression as he calmly lofts an extra cover drive for six. That was sweetly timed.
...
OUT! Shijit has to go. Ganpa strikes again. And Trichy are now slowly trying to get back into this game. He completely misread that full ball and he has to go. Shijit Chandran b Ganapathy 2(6)

Madurai 144/3 after 14.2 overs
...
KB wants to get this done quickly while Shijit is taking his time to get going. Seven came off that over.

Madurai 143/2 after 14 overs
...
SIX! KB gets his FIFTY off 29 balls. That is his seventh fifty for Madurai in TNPL. And what a way to get there. That six spoiled what otherwise would have been the perfect over for Trichy.

Madurai 136/2 after 13 overs
...
OUT! Thala has to go. A juicy full toss and all he can do is find the fielder at long off, who takes a good catch to finally break the second-wicket partnership. Sargunam c MS Sanjay b Ganapathy 70(36)

Madurai 127/2 after 12.1 overs
...
The introduction of spin in the form of Vignesh K has slightly stemmed the flow of runs as just seven came off that over.

Madurai 127/1 after 12 overs
...
It looks like Thala is in a hurry to finish this game. 14 runs came off this over, including two sixes and Thala will be on strike to start the next over.

Madurai 120/1 after 11 overs
...
Back-to-Back SIXES for Thala! The first was a hit-me ball that was clobbered over cow corner and the second was a full toss despatched just behind square leg where Ganpa got a hand to it but could only palm it over for another six.
...
Lots of chaos and confusion in that over but all in good spirits as far as Madurai are concerned. 10 came off it thanks to a beautiful lofted extra cover drive from KB but there was also the substitute fielder running halfway towards KB before being sent back. And not to forget  the confusion that eventually resulted in just a single.

Madurai 106/1 after 10 overs
...
FIFTY for Thala! Off just 25 balls. An inside edge just beats the stumps and he races through for a single to the keeper.
...
Another good over spoiled by a six off the last ball by KB. Before the last ball just five singles came off that over. 

Madurai 96/1 after 9 overs
...
Just when it looked like Thala was racing towards his fifty, he decides to take a second to assess things. Just seven off that over from Lakshmi Narayanan.

Madurai 85/1 after 8 overs
...
Thala makes that a massive over over Madurai Panthers. 20 runs came off it and out of nowhere, he is closing in on a fifty.

Madurai 78/1 after 7 overs
...
SIX! Make that three sixes in four balls. All to different parts of the ground, which is some achievement. This is over wide long on.
...
SIX! Thala has no intention of running. He smokes one wide of square leg this time and his absolute disdain for the slower bowler is evident from his massive hits.

Madurai 71/1 after 6.4 overs
...
SIX! Thala decides that he is done taking risky singles. He smashes one over cow corner and it takes a while for the ball to be found.

Madurai 65/1 after 6.2 overs
...
SIX! Thala with arguably the shot of the day so far. He dances down the track and even with deep mid-wicket on the ropes, he takes the risk and lofts a wonderful six over the fielder's head. That along with KB's boundary down the ground means 12 came off the final over of the powerplay.

Madurai 58/1 after 6 overs
...
A couple of boundaries, one each off the bat of KB Arun Karthik and Thalaivan Sargunam means that Sonu Yadav's first over goes for 10 runs.

Madurai 46/1 after 5 overs
...
MS Sanjay comes into the attack and Thalaivan Sargunam welcomes him with a couple of boundaries, first over the covers and the next wide off the slip. 11 runs were scored off it. 

SMP 36/1 after 4 overs
...
A successful over for Ruby Trichy Warriors as they got an early wicket of D Rohit and conceded just six runs off it. They need a couple of more overs like this to put the pressure on Madurai. 

SMP 25/1 after 3 overs
...
D Rohit departs as he edges a delivery that spun away from him and the wicket-keeper Mani Bharathy took an easy catch behind the stumps.

D Rohit c Mani Bharathy b K Vignesh 11 (10)
...
Two boundaries were hit off the second over and Madurai take nine runs off the over bowled by C Ganapathy.

...
Arun Karthick gets the innings underway with a six off the first ball of the innings bowled by K Vignesh. 
...
Skipper D Rohit and Madurai's main ma KB Arun Karthick come out to bat. We have an interesting chase in our hands now 

...
Can the Madurai Panthers chase this and make it four in a row? Join us in 15 minutes to find out.

Trichy Warriors post 175/4

This was in many ways the ideal T20 batting performance from the Ruby Trichy Warriors. The opening batsmen put on a fifty partnership, there were no wicket lost in the power play. Although both openers were dismissed in quick succession, there was a period of quiet consolidation before a final flourish from Vasanth Saravanan and Suresh Kumar, who put 92 runs for the fourth wicket to help them get past 170.

...
OUT! Excellent catch by CV Varun and the Trichy innings ends on 175/4. Vasanth Saravanan is out off the last ball. 21 runs came off the last over of the innings.  Saravanan c Chakravathi b J Kousik 52(28)
...
SIX! FIFTY for Vasanth Saravanan. His fifty took just 27 balls and he brings it up with his third six of the innings. Just what this innings needed.
...
SIX! Not too happy with just fours, Suresh Kumar decides to just loft one over cover and picks up his first six of the innings. Already 14 have come off the first three balls.
...
BACK-TO-BACK FOURS for Suresh Kumar. What a start to the final over of the innings. The first was cut past point and the second was a top-edge over short third man.
...
Excellent over from Abhishek Tanwar but that has been spoiled by a couple of misfields. Both of them went for four and the over ended up going for 12 runs.

Trichy 154/3 after 19 overs
...
A tight over ends with a boundary that spoils that over. Eight came off it but will that be the last dose of spin in this innings? Eight came off the 18th over.

Trichy 143/3 after 18 overs
...
CV Varun comes in to bowl his final over. Three overs to go and Trichy will be looking at a total in excess of 170.
...
Vasanth Saravan makes the most of the life he has been given. After being dropped by Rahil Shah at deep square leg and picking up two runs in the process, Saravanan lets loose with a four just over cover and six over the fielder at mid off, who immediately drops back to long off.  14 came off that over.

Trichy 135/3 after 17 overs
...
Rahil Shah doesn't get a wicket in this over. It goes for nine runs and he finishes with figures of 3/27.

Trichy 121/3 after 16 overs
...
Rahil Shah has a wicket in each of his first three overs. Can he make it four in a row as he completes his spell?
...
While Madurai's spin trio have been economical, the pacers have been expensive. Abhishek Tanwar certainly proving that with an over that goes for 12 runs.

Trichy 112/3 after 15 overs
...
Tight over from CV Varun as the Trichy Warriors bring up their team 100 following a four-run over.

Trichy 100/3 after 14 overs
