Commentary

That's the side of Dhoni I have not seen before. He has won matches way bigger than this. But as he says, it was an emotional moment for him to win this one. That's all we have. Hop over to the other tab to follow the other game between Delhi and Deccan. Cheers

Presentation
MS Dhoni is the Man of the Match He says, "It's a tough game, you can't always perform, but if you perform in big games, you get that tag of being the pressure player. But the fact is, Raina and Badri set the chase up. It was an emotional moment. Your franchise pays so much money for you, you should at least make the semi-finals. After that you can say it is a lottery. The kind of franchise we have got, the kind of team we have, we should have made it to the semi-finals before this game. So it was an emotional moment, at least for me."

Kumar Sangakkara "We needed to get our yorkers right, but wasn't to be. Boys worked hard, but couldn't close it off. We have had patches of great batting, great bowling, bad bowling, bad batting. That kind of season. It's been a privilege to play for Kings XI Punjab, a privilege to play in front of these crowds."

Chennai will think they have righted a major mistake they committed. They had no business losing to Punjab in the first match, which put them in this must-win situation originally. This time, Punjab played much better, and kept it close, but they were poor in the last two overs of length bowling. And these were not yorkers gone wrong, these were bowlers who didn't seem to posses the yorker. And better bowlers have been hurt by bowling length to MSD. Chennai will now face the winner of the match between Delhi and Decan later tonight.

Pathan to Dhoni, SIX runs, and Dhoni has carried Chennai through. Length ball again, and Dhoni has hit another huge blistering six over wide long-on. And he is pumped. He has won many big matches in his career, but I have never seen him so pumped. Punches himself in the jaw, like a boxer. The Chennai team, behind Chawla at long-off, rushes through the fielder to congratulate Dhoni

Pathan to Dhoni, SIX runs, McLeodganj, send the ball back please! misses the yorker length, and boy, has he bludgeoned it. From wide outside off, he sends it miles over wide long-on. Biggest televised six in Himachal Pradesh

Pathan to Dhoni, 2 runs, yes it is. Back of a length, Dhoni top-edges, skied towards long-off, Chawla is slow in coming in, and lets through two by misfielding on the bounce

Third man and fine leg both inside the circle. Slower ball coming up?

Pathan to Dhoni, FOUR runs, lovely shot! Nearly a yorker, Dhoni goes deep into the crease, and drives this wide of long-off for four. What power

16 required off the last over. Dhoni on strike. Irfan, who dropped Morkel, to bowl now
