Commentary

Presentation

MS Dhoni: The bowlers are letting us down, we need to come up with a few ideas. And we have struggled in the middle overs. We need to pull up there.

Adam Gilchrist: I was pleased we pulled them back to 160, they could have scored 180-190. Ojha bowled well, RP hung in. I probably made a mistake. Gave Ojha only two overs, had a theory in my mind but it didn't work. I won't reveal that theory about Ojha.

Herchelle Gibbs, Man of the Match: A bit more relaxed, more controlled. If Gilly plays like that, I don't have to do much upfront. Our spinners took the bull by the horn.

Join us for the second game, which starts in a while. Okay bye.

* Gibbs has played a gem today, taking the pants off the ball in the first four overs, and then dropping anchor once Gilchrist got out. Duly he saw Deccan through, hitting a six in the last over and staying not-out. Chennai have problems, with their new-ball bowlers bowling length at 125ks. Bala and Gony need to do better. It was Raina and Murali who prolonged the game, but it never seemed like a close one.

Balaji to Bilakhia, FOUR runs, and Deccan have doubled their points tally from last year, short and wide and cut over point, easy win despite a last-over finish

Balaji to Gibbs, 1 run, full, outside off, and an easy single to long-off

Balaji to Gibbs, SIX runs, and Gibbs has planned it perfectly, he knew a slower ball was coming along, he makes room, waits and slogs it into the leg side, clearing the short square boundary, what a knock

Eight required off last over. Bala to bowl. Dhoni takes his pads off, Parthiv keeps. It almost seemed Dhoni might bowl

END OF OVER:

Morkel to Bilakhia, 1 leg bye, goes for the scoop again, it's a length delivery, but he misses, and is saved from the lbw because it hits him outside the line of off
