Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 9 Runs 1 Wkt | DC: 150/5

  • AA Jhunjhunwala1 (1b)
  • DT Christian27 (24b)
  • BW Hilfenhaus4-0-31-1
  • DJ Bravo4-0-35-0

Chasing 161 was always going to be tough given the slow nature of the pitch, but White (77) played one of the better innings one would see on such a track. Still, he needed support from the other end to have a chance of winning the match, which he did not get after the dismissal of Dhawan.

Bravo and Jadeja went for a few runs in one of their overs which gave the side an outside chance but the Super Kings fought back well every time. Back with the presentation in a few minutes.

Presentation

MS Dhoni: The wicket has become slower, difficult for us to capitalise in the latter overs, because of the pitch. It is happening now, it happened last Champions League as well. Doug Bollinger is bowling well in the nets, but too many no-balls in the nets, so we need to assess how he goes. Ben Hilfenhaus did a good job today.

Kumar Sangakkara: It was a case of getting a good start, we got a good start, but they came back well with some good fielding. White batted well, but we dropped far too many to win a close game. We batted and bowled well but our fielding has cost us many games this season.

Suresh Raina is the man of the match for his all-round show.

Raina: I think I need to spend more time at the crease, hitting them well but need to bat till 15th. Whenever the left-handed batsman comes in, Dhoni asks me to bowl. We need to bat well, put some good scores on the board and defend well.

That is it then, will be back for tomorrow's games, of which one promises to be ripper of a contest, between Sourav Ganguly's new team and his old one. Of course, that is if the rains stay away from the contest. This is Suneer Chowdhary signing off for tonight!

Hilfenhaus to Jhunjhunwala, 1 run, full-toss and dabbed to the point fielder for a single, that is the end of that and Chennai have broken their three-match drought with a win!
19.5

Hilfenhaus to Christian, 1 run, full pitched, driven to long-off for a single, 12 off one needed

Two sixes for a tie.

W
Hilfenhaus to Ashish Reddy, OUT, gone, caught! Tried to slash it away, goes in the air, and Murali Vijay ran to his right and catches it well.
19.3

Hilfenhaus to Ashish Reddy, 2 runs, full-toss, drilled back to the bowler, for a couple of runs
19.2
1
Hilfenhaus to Christian, 1 run, edged and that goes to fine third-man, but the fielder is just where they need him to be, and there is only a single

16 off five needed. Now Dhoni helps in resetting the field.

19.1
4
Hilfenhaus to Christian, FOUR runs, flicked away for four. Goes outside the off-stump and mows it to the fine-leg fence for a four. The fielder was up inside the circle.

So Hilfenhaus will bowl the last over. Christian on strike. The bowler is setting his own fields.
