Join us in welcoming Kochi and Pune to the IPL bandwagon. We were tracking developments throughout the morning as the drama unfolded at the ITC Park Sheraton in Chennai.

Toss: Adam Gilchrist chooses to bat. :"Its the same wicket we played on Friday night. It might be tired. We want to give our bowlers something to defend. We got three changes : VVS is injured. Mohnish Mishra comes in. Rahul Sharma in for Jaskaran Singh and Venugopal Rao comes in for Anirudh Singh."

Dinesh Karthik: Rajat Bhatia, Sangwan and DIlshan are out. Moises, Ladda and Yogesh Nagar are in.

0.1

Mishra to Mishra, no run, leans forward to drive the leggie to short cover

0.2
