That is it from us then. Read Sidharth Monga's match report here. Join us tomorrow for more IPL action. Cheers

Tepid start to the IPL then, CSK batted poorly and then Levi took away whatever little chance they had with a fifty on his IPL debut

Levi is the Man of the Match. Levi: "It came on nicely on to the bat. One or two bounced a lot. It was unbelievable [opening with Sachin]. He was very easy to talk to."

Harbhajan: "It was a good toss to win, the wicket is unpredictable, Levi played a terrific innings. It's a very important thing in this format [fielding]. If Dhoni would have stayed, another 30-40 runs would have been difficult on this wicket.

Dhoni: "Not a typical Chennai wicket. Quite happy with the bowling, but as usual, another rusty start to the tournament. Maybe 140-145 would not have been difficult. Levi batted well though."

James Franklin says the wicket was a bit two-paced but adds that he is sure CSK will get that sorted out
