Commentary

That's all we have for you now. Join us in a couple of days' time when Super Kings take on Kings XI Punjab in the second qualifier. Until then, thank you for your company. Good night

Suresh Raina is the Man of the Match "God has been very kind to me [after being named captain of India for Bangladesh] We executed the bowing plan really well. And then the batsmen, all of them did their job. I knew I had to bat till the last over. Wicket was really good, ball was coming on nicely. I knew I could hit Ojha over midwicket and Bhajji over cover. Huss was batting well and we were running between the wickets well too. Ishwar took a brilliant catch to dismiss Anderson and hopefully we can continue playing good cricket in the next two games as well"

"I think the bowlers did a real good job. I twas a very good wicket to bat on. Asish and Ishwar moved the ball around a bit. In the middle overs, the spinners bowled well. 180-185 was a par score, good track, fast outfield and not too big boundaries. 173 was just a bit under par, but we needed to score the runs. It would have been better had the top order carried on after. I though those catches would have been dropped, but Ishwar's catch was brilliant. Anderson will try and swing and I kept Ashwin for him and it paid off. That's where experience counts. I felt with Hussey around, if he gets going he can accelerate and the firepower with me and Jaddu around, we could chase 9 or 10 an over"

"Hold on," says Ashwin at the end of an inteview, "Maxwell can expect me to bowl more over the wicket in the next game". Can you spell gauntlet? "We batted really well and for David Hussey to come in and play like that. It was not the easiest pitch. A little like Australia. And the kind of shots he played was amazing"

"Dont think so. We batted well till the 15th-16th over. 170 was a good enough, target. We would have liked some more but we really played well and I have a lot of pride in this side and how long we've come in this tournament. This just wasn't our day," says Rohit Sharma. "We showed a lot of character after losing the first five games. Coming back to India and performing like that was incredible. I didn't have to do too much, we were in that momentum after our last win and we wanted to carry it though to this game. But unfortunately CSK were the better team today and that's what it is. We've got some work to do and hopefully we'll come back bigger and stronger next year"

11.25 pm Suresh Raina completed his seventh season with over 400 runs. Super Kings were facing a tough chase, but Raina as he has done so many times in yellow, served as the backbone of the chase. He timed his acceleration well and his placement and timing were top notch. Mumbai bow out, but not before producing some very memorable moments this season

Bumrah to Raina, FOUR runs, all over, a bottom-handed flick through midwicket seals Chennai Super Kings' progress to the second qualifier. It was in the slot, Raina pulled his front leg out of the way and struck this far too powerfully for anyone to bother chasing
