Commentary

Jadeja has won the game for them, even as he got caught he won Chennai the game! Went down to the last ball, but how could RP slip up so badly on the last ball of the over? Kohli's expression changed in a matter of a second. He started celebrating and then looked at the umpire. He rightly called it a no-ball, what a big lapse from RP. Jadeja has snatched victory here, 16 needed off the last over and you would have thought Bangalore will prevail but that wasn't the case. We'll get you the presentation details in a bit, but still can't imagine that final delivery.

Sunil: "I thought all those tweets about Sir Jadeja were over the top , but , wow ! When Sir Jadeja wants to get a run , he really does make the bowler bowl a no ball !"

Aashay: "That, my friends, is the power of Jadeja"

Praveen: "Ground moved a little bit to convert RP Singh's correct stepping into a NO Ball.." The legend will live on...

Sundar: "Tell you what, if ever still cameras and capture change in expressions and someone took that photo of Kohli's changing expressions, he would be in for all possible photography awards. The sheer drama of sport. Wasn't RJ who snatched it out of RCB last year as well in that last over, after the assault on Kohli by Albie?"

Kohli: "It was our game to lose in the last six overs. We are relying on big partnership as of now, a few small partnerships will do good for us. RP, T20 is a game like that, I'm still proud of him."

MS Dhoni: "The performance was great, we need to improve our death bowling drastically. We didn't get off to a good start, the pressure was there on the middle order. You can't really afford to play too many dot balls, you have to be there till the 15th or 16th over to cash in."

Jadeja is the Man of the Match: "[With reference to Sir] they are just making fun in a lighter way, not a serious way. I was confident about my batting, I scored two triple-hundreds this season. I was not trying to play any silly shots, it was a good wicket."

That brings us to the end of our coverage for this game. Sidharth Monga is updating his report here. A double-header tomorrow as well, so do join us then. Take care.

Singh to Jadeja, (no ball) 1 run, gone! RCB have snatched victory! Oh no, they haven't! RP has bowled a no-ball! Chennai have won, that was short and wide and Jadeja edged it straight to third man as he tried to cut that. But the umpire Chowdhary has called it a no-ball, RP overstepped according to the umpire. RP overstepped by a big margin there, definitely a no-ball, they get a run for the overstepping and another one for the single they snatched as the catch was taken

2 needed off 1, we seem to be heading towards a Super Over. Jadeja to face, can he finish it off? Can RP get a wicket? They are giving him the single? The fileders are on the circle on the off side

Singh to Morris, 1 run, on a length, drives it hard down the ground to long-on for a single

Not another Super Over? Wow, Morris on strike, two balls to go. A spread field, they'll give him the single

Singh to Jadeja, 1 run, slower one outside off, cut towards point for a single, he's off strike, just the single

Singh to Jadeja, SIX runs, Jadeja, you beauty! This is down to the wire, another length ball from RP and he launches that clean over long-on for six

Singh to Jadeja, FOUR runs, third man is up and Jadeja scores a boundary first ball though a touch fortutiously, big outside edge as he tries to go over long-on, four past short third

Rampaul completes a very good spell, 3 for 31 are impressive returns given the context. Who will bowl the last over? RP is the man, Chennai need 16
