Presentation Ceremony

Dhoni: "It's always good to be on the winning side. We were a bit rusty in the first match, but the boys executed the plans well today to put up a big score. We were not sure about the dew factor but we still thought 190 odd is a good score to defend."

White: "Jadeja played really well, and we did not play all that well. We are a young team and Chennai are an excellent side"

Man of the Match is Ravindra Jadeja

Was there a doubt in that? Unanimous choice

Ravindra Jadeja: "A fabulous performance for me. I would like to thank my mom and family and I'm very happy that I had a good day. Initially I was looking to rotate strike. I was waiting for a left arm spinner to come in and then I wanted to go for the big shots. In T20, a 5 wicket haul is very good. I was trying to bowl stump to stump and wanted to restrict them. "

A Thumping win here for the Super Kings. Ravindra Jadeja clearly stood out with a super human performance, first with the bat and then with the ball. Deccan Chargers have to pull up their socks after this humiliating loss and their think tank have enough to keep them occupied for the next few days
