KB Arun Karthik reaches his fifty with a boundary behind the backward point fielder and Rohit follows it up with a four of his own to make it 10 runs from the over. Madurai need less than run a ball from here.

...
OUT! Thala edges one behind to the keeper and has to go. He could have hit that anywhere but finds the keeper. Thalaivan Sargunam c Rohith b T Natarajan 5(5)

Madurai 40/2 after 5.5 overs
...
Vignesh K has been economical so far but he hasn't been able to pick up a wicket yet.

Madurai 36/1 after 5 overs
...
What should have been an excellent over for Kovai is instead one that goes for nine runs even though there was a wicket in there. How costly will that dropped catch be?

Madurai 31/1 after 4 overs
...
DROPPED! That could be massive. KB slaps one straight to MP Rajesh who drops that. And the Madurai opener survives.
...
OUT! Stunning catch at deep mid-wicket from Natarajan to get rid of Raheja. He slightly mistimed it initially, composed himself, threw the ball up, went out then jumped back in to complete the catch. Tushar Raheja c T Natarajan b R Mithun 8(8)

Madurai 22/1 after 3.3 overs
...
Five dot balls from K Vignesh's second over but the one that wasn't went for a massive six over cow corner from Arun Karthik.

Madurai 22/0 after 3 overs
...
The first over of spin almost results in a wicket but Raheja just clears the in field and survives. Nine came off the second over.

Madurai 16/0 after 2 over
...
Solid start for Madurai. Just seven off the first over and both openers are off the mark.

Madurai 7/0 after 1 over
...
There is a slight change for Madurai as debutant Tushar Raheja is opening the the batting alongside KB Arun Karthik instead of captain D Rohit.
