IN PIC: Chennai Super Kings batsman Subramaniam Badrinath avoids a bouncer from Pune Warriors bowler Ashish Nehra during the IPL Twenty20 cricket match between Chennai Super Kings and Pune Warriors at The M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Quite a dramatic over from Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Ganguly dropped a difficult chance off the first ball. He was running backwards, eyes firmly on the ball. He did get a bit of hand underneath but couldn't pouch it properly. Fell on the ground over his shoulder and took time to get up. The crowd roared once Dada was back on his feet!

Badrinath then hit him for three consecutive boundaries, bringing up his fifty with the second one. The first occasion in IPL 5 that both the openers have scored fifties. They both have given CSK a perfect start with a solid 115 run stand.

CSK 115-0 after 15 overs
