IPL 12 Final MI vs CSK at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad: McClenaghan returns to the attack. Interesting scenes in the middle as the bowler bangs it short to Raina, who always looks shaky against the short balls, huge appeal for catch behind the stumps and umpire Gould raised his finger. Raina immediately opted for DRS and guess what? While the slow-motion cameras showed that the ball might have brushed the shoulder of his, ultra edge did not pick anything. Raina surivives. Mumbai would have loved the wicket at this stage. Nevertheless a good over by left-arm pacer. Just 4 off it.
