Nitin Sundar's Bulletin is ready. And that is all we have for you for the time being. Later, of course, Sriram Veera will have more stories to tell from Durban. Do join us for the double-header tomorrow. Okay bye

Presentation
S Badrinath is the Man of the Match for his superb innings. He says: "I am really happy with the innings. To be able to see the team through to the end. It wasn't easy to start off with, but once I got in I made sure I made it count. Totally different conditions to what we get in India, so really happy that I could do well here."

Jamie How: "To restrict Chennai to 150, I thought the boys bowled really well. The bowling and fielding were the positives, but we didn't really turn up with the bat. Come Wednesday, against Victoria, we will be looking to bounce back."

MS Dhoni: "Well of course it is really good to start such a tournament with a big win. Especially when we lost wickets initially. These are the conditions where technique does matter, and Badri has a good technique. So good to see him perform. It is important to get momentum when you start off with a win."

Bollinger to McClenaghan, OUT, and he is the last man out too! Early finish here as Mitchell McClenaghan pokes away from the body, getting a thick edge. Hayden at wide slip flies to his lift to pouch this. Comprehensive win for Chennai

Balaji to Mason, OUT, Mason couldn't build a long innings here, though! Went for another big shot, across the line, and it flies off the back of the bat, to third man

MJ Mason c Bollinger b Balaji 10 (4m 4b 1x4 1x6) SR: 250.00

Balaji to Mason, FOUR runs, that will do for Mason. Into the V. Behind the wicket. Edged over slip

Balaji to Mason, no run, looks for the big shot again but is beaten outside off this time
17.3
6
Balaji to Mason, SIX runs, where have you been hiding Michael mason? First ball, and he nonchalantly lofts it over cow corner for six! Easy as Sunday morning. Well it is Sunday morning already in some parts of the world
17.2
W
Balaji to Bracewell, OUT, he is bowling a thala here - big boss, in Tamil. Straight ball, clears front leg and slogs, and plays it on to the stumps

DAJ Bracewell b Balaji 30 (25m 28b 2x4 1x6) SR: 107.14

Bollinger to Bracewell, no run, backing away, looking at third man, but doesn't do the vital thing - make contact

Bollinger to Milne, 1 run, sliced over cover

Arish: "Ashwin called Balaji 'Thala' in last ball.

thala - big boss/" I thought he said Bala. Sharp ears you have

0
Bollinger to Milne, no run, looks to run this to third man, is beaten

Adam Milne is the new batsman

16.2
W
Bollinger to Griggs, OUT, what I can verify is that Bollinger has got a wicket here! Griggs backs away, looking to upper-cut, but all he manages is a soft edge that settles with Dhoni

BBJ Griggs c †Dhoni b Bollinger 9 (40m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.00

Swapnil R: "Heard someone sneeze just now - but there was no one other than me in the room, only to realize that it was Dhoni who sneezed quite close to the stump MIC." I can't verify that, though

16.1
1
Bollinger to Bracewell, 1 run, back of a length, steered to third man for one

Sen: "Murali was once run out in NZ when he ran across celebrate his team-mates century. He is probably trying to give it back!!" Sharp observation, but don't think Murali would bear grudges for so long. Not against men who had nothing to do with that at any rate. Meanwhile, Bollinger comes back

END OF OVER:
16 | 8 Runs | CD: 81/6 (71 runs required from 11 balls, RR: 5.06, RRR: 17.75)
