That's all Cricinfo has to offer on this tab, but do hop over to the other IPl game where Punjab have put Deccan in. The beauty of that game is that the game features a direct switch from the previous season. Sanga now leads Deccan, Gilly Punjab, wicketkeeper-batsmen both. Thanks for joining us. Okay bye

Presentation
Michael Hussey is Man of the Match. He says: "It's great fun, we have a great franchise. They look very well after their players. We have got a very good feeling in the team. We have got some extremely talented players. The hamstring has been fine. Touch wood, hopefully that continues. Had a bit of luck today, but thankfully it was my day.'

MS Dhoni "That was a good start. When I was batting, I found it harder than some of the other wickets. Michael Hussey was brilliant, contributive efforts from other batsmen. The variation that Hussey, Raina and Morkel bring is also good for us even if the opposition has good offspinners and legspinners. Our bowling attack is quite like-like, two offpsinners for example, so you have to keep rotating them."

Daniel Vettori "That's probably been our downfall in the last two games, our fielding. It's a thing we need to rectify. Our mix is right, and if we field well we give ourselves a good chance."

The win takes Chennai to joint-second among a group of four teams who all have four points from three games each. Bangalore slip down with just one win from four games. "One chance you are gone man..." says Srikkanth on Bangalore's fielding. And how true. Fielding was a big difference between the sides today
