END OF OVER:

A fine finish for Chennai and Michael Hussey is elated. 33-run win for Chennai, an emphatic start to the tournament. Punjab did their bit early on but James Hopes' dismissal started a decline. Sangakkara fought hard but eventually it was Hussey's sensational innings that won the day.

Thanks for joining us. Don't go away anywhere because the Rajasthan Royals have decided to bat first in their clash against the Delhi Daredevils. Switch screens and follow that game live.

From me Siddhartha Vaidyanathan, good night and good luck.

Joginder Sharma to Pathan, no run, slower one to finish, Irfan can't make contact and it dribbles through to the keeper

1
Joginder Sharma to Katich, 1 run, dug out towards the off side for a single, good yorker
19.4
6
Joginder Sharma to Katich, SIX runs, in the slot and that's smouldered over midwicket for a big six, Katich plonks his foot forward and swings hard, fine shot but a case of too little, too late

Joginder Sharma to Katich, no run, full and straight, Joginder ending it well here, no contact with bat on ball

Joginder Sharma to Pathan, 1 run, another full one, no elevation, pushed to long-off

1
Joginder Sharma to Katich, 1 run, full and outside off, carved away towards deep point for a single

43 off 6 balls. Take your pick. Gary Sobers, Ravi Shastri, Herschelle Gibbs, Yuvraj Singh ... not possible. Joginder with the final over ... who else
