Commentary

A facile win for the Super Kings, chasing down the score of 115 with much ease. They were clearly chasing the net run-rate as they attempted to go after the bowling from very early and ended up with the win easily, with almost five overs remaining. Vijay scored an unbeaten 48 after Michael Hussey started off with a 38. Unbeaten 28 for Suresh Raina. The Delhi bowlers tried hard, but the target was below par.

Presentation

Sehwag: It was difficult to defend 114, good wicket to bat on, CSK played well, full credit to them. The ball against Hilfenhaus was unplayable, swinging away. Three more games to go, two of which are against KXIP, hope to win one or two against them.

Dhoni: Needed to play authentic cricket chasing less than a run a ball. Hussey and Vijay gave us the start we needed. It was not swinging too much after the first couple of overs, so we needed to keep Hilfenhaus for the death overs, he has given us than extra spark. Albie's bowling well with him, openers doing well too.

Ben Hilfenhaus, man of the match: Obviously good to start well and put them under pressure. I would be lying if I said I did not enjoy that one, we did well as a group, both bowling and batting. I would like to come back and bowl in the death and try and improve.

Aaron to Raina, 3 runs, outside the off stump, tries to hoick it over the leg side, gets a top edge, goes high in the air and two fielders were converging for it, no-one got to it and they get a couple. Oh but wait, there is an overthrow and they come back for the third and that is game, set and match Chennai!
