Commentary

Delhi went through their batting clinically giving no chance whatsoever to the Super Kings. The openers started off briskly and after they departed, the rest was taken care of by Pietersen and Mahela.This has been the biggest win for any team over Chennai in terms of balls remaining.

Pietersen talking to Ramiz Raja after the match, in a lighter vein, says that he hated Mahela when he was in the opposition in the recent series in Sri Lanka.

Presentation Ceremony:

Sehwag: "Bowlers started off really well upfront and the left arm spinners took off from there. We've international class which has been boosted by the return of KP and Mahela. As a result of that, I can play freely."

Dhoni: "We posted a below par score. The wicket behaved well in the second half. We were looking to have a left and right hand combination but the run-outs never let us get that right. We have to be more consistent and look to play good cricket"

Morne Morkel is the Man of the Match for his spell of 2 for 19 off his four overs.

Morne Morkel: "It was a home game for us and we got off to a good start. The groundsman have to be complimented for putting up a good wicket. I was under pressure to bowl to a power house of Chennai's batting line-up."

That's it from me today. This is Abhishek N signing off. Kanishkaa will be taking you through tomorrow's game. Till then it's Good bye from us.....
