Commentary

Presentation:

Dhoni: "We played good cricket but we gave away too many in tje last two or three overs. The rain helped us, their bowlers found it tough. This was one of the best Delhi wickets I have seen. Shukla bowled well. Smith and McCullum were brilliant. Raina made sure he batted till the end. We need to improve our bowling. We need a couple of fast bowlers who can bowl well in the death."

Smith is the Man of the Match: "Meant to stay out there. It was a good track to me as well. Me and McCullum keep encouraging each other. It was a very good chase for us. It's a great team."

Pietersen: "We thought we lost a bit of momentum. I thought some of our boys played some good cricket. Wayne Parnell was beautiful, the wicket was quite slow before the rain came and the rain sort of affected it but no excuses. CSK played really well. Nobody's here to blame anyone, we probably have to win most of our games here and I still believe our team can make the playoffs."

That's much easier said than done. Delhi have lost 5 out of 7 and they have seven more to play. Their road ahead gets tougher.

That's it from us here. Thanks for your company. One more game tomorrow. Cheers!

Pratyush: "KP needs a bowler, desperately. They should have won this one. Shami has disappointed all of us. Feel really bad for him."

Venkat: "Feel for KP here... He has been very classy off the field and has conducted himself brilliantly in the interviews, and on the field it is obvious that he is tuned in and in charge. Hopefully fortunes change for DD !"

Unadkat to Dhoni, FOUR, the captain does the honours! Unadkat bowls one full toss too many, it was outside off and he reached out and cracked this wide of cover who throws himself to his left in vain, raced away, that CSK's sixth consecutive win over Daredevils and their sixth in a row in this tournament

KP has a chat with Unadkat while the batsmen chat too. Third man and fine leg up

pravin: "@vikram : why worry when you have Dhoni in the last over !! He has been in this position so many times !! :)"

Unadkat to Dhoni, 2 runs, this is a low full toss and he looks to play straighter and gets an outside edge that clears cover, two added

Unadkat to Dhoni, SIX, there's the big hit! Unadkat bowls it in the spot for Dhoni to have a free swing and take him downtown, not sure how many rows over long-on but that was massive

Vikram: "If CSK lose this it could very well be because both Raina and Smith were ball watching instead of crossing over."

Unadkat to Raina, 1 run, gets away with a low full toss as Raina swung it to deep midwicket

Parnell to Dhoni, no run, and it's a dot ball! Parnell ends the over and his spell with a good yorker, too good for Dhoni to make something of it, he could only drill it down the track

Parnell to Dhoni, no run, this was a length ball which Dhoni looked to pull but played it straight to Jadhav at short midwicket

Dhoni walks in
