Commentary

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

Mitchell McClenaghan is the last man in here

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

Balaji to Mason, FOUR runs, that will do for Mason. Into the V. Behind the wicket. Edged over slip
17.4
0
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
