That's all we have for you tonight. No we have another email. From Aravind: "So these two teams face off again day after tomorrow? Some nut the guy who made the schedule." Good night and good luck

Presentation
Mike Hussey is the MoM. He says: It certainly was a lot slower than Bangalore. We had to make adjustments quickly. The fielding was outstanding. We had a just-below-par score, but they pulled it back for us. Every time we wanted to kick on, we lost a wicket, but that was the nature of the wicket. We just wanted to try and take it as deep as possible. I thought it was a good score, but probably just below par."

MS Dhoni Very important to win. Can't afford to lose games in a row. Hopefully we can continue the way we are. I don't do too much of planning, I don't attend bowlers' meetings. Every wicket is different, every situation is different. I always go without any pre-planned ideas in the mind. It helps me. Doesn't restrict me. We didn't have too many runs, you have the feeling if they got off to a good start, it would have been difficult. We started well, our fielding added to it, it is something we want to keep doing."

Yuvraj Singh "No regrets. We bowled really well. Jerome, Alfonso and Rahul bowled really well, along with Kartik. If you are four down inside the six overs, it is difficult to come back. A lot of blame goes to me too, I should have finished the game. Third time this has happened against Chennai that I have started well and lost my way later."

Chennai back to winning ways. Well done. It would be tempting to say Chennai enjoyed a lot of luck when they were batting, but they made the most out of it. Yuvraj too survived a plumb LBW. Chennai accepted their gifts. And they were smashing in the field, while Pune missed many run-outs and half-chances for catches. A well-deserved win for Chennai. Stay with us for the presentation

Bollinger to Thomas, no run, full and wide, played to point. All over

Madhu has a fresh approach: "@ Sid - NZ is winning the Anzac day battle. Fleming (our could-be new coach is to be praised) vs Goeff Marsh." Sweet as

Bollinger to McCullum, OUT, Exclamation mark from an Aussie on Anzac Day. Dismissing a Kiwi. Quick, sharp bouncer, aimed at his jaw. McCullum hooks, gets a top edge that goes nowhere. Gone

Kartik is the new man, but at the non-striker's end

Bollinger to McCullum, 1 run, OUT, hit to long-on, wants to come back for two, and Mukund is in action again. From long-on, he hits the stumps direct. Taylor has to go

Bollinger to finish off. McCullum to face. Aussies are winning this on the Anzac Day
