Commentary

END OF OVER:
18 | 11 Runs | KXIP: 174/3

  • Yuvraj Singh58 (36b)
  • DPMD Jayawardene44 (25b)
  • L Balaji4-0-41-1
  • SK Raina2-0-8-0

Punjab chased bravely and were matching the asking-rate of 12 an over until they entered the final four overs. Dhoni gave the ball to Raina because his other bowlers had gone for plenty and the spinner bowled two economical overs that broke Punjab's chase. Chennai go to the top of the table with 11 points and a net run-rate that's better than Rajasthan's.

That's it from us at Cricinfo for today. It's been eventful. This is George Binoy signing off. Cheers.
