Presentation:

Harbhajan: "We bowled well after the first ten overs. Treat to watch Pollard and Karthik. Great fight shown. A kind of pitch you can hit shots off good length balls. Proud of the boys. Whenever we play CSK it's always a good game."

Dhoni: "It was important to guide Jadeja. Matches like these really groom a cricketer. Hilfenhaus was right on the money. We took the gamble of giving the later overs to the spinners. We could have got another 15 runs. 170 plus two runs makes a difference."

Hilfenhaus is the Man of the Match: "After watching the way their seamers finished off the innings it gave us an idea of where to bowl. Variable bounce tonight. It's quite hard to defend on this ground."

That's it from us here. The cricket continues tomorrow. Thanks for the mails and your company. Cheers!

9pm: There was only pride to play for, but both teams gave us quite a humdinger. Dinesh Karthik refused to believe Mumbai were done and dusted after a sluggish start. In the process he exposed weaknesses in Chennai's bowling. Ashwin and Jadeja leaked 91 runs between them.

By the way, where was the rain that was supposed to show up?

Aks: "Ashwin should get the man of the match here.. He leaked enough runs, to make everyone know how important his last ball six was!"

Jadeja to Johnson, no run, flatter delivery and he can only drill it down the ground to long-off and that will be all! What a fight

Malinga walks in. Nothing at stake for these teams but they're fighting tooth and nail

Jadeja to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, well taken by Saha! Jadeja floated that down the leg side and Harbhajan swiveled and aimed for the long leg boundary, it was flat and hard and Saha did really well to keep calm and cup the ball over his head

Jadeja to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR runs, that rocketed off the bat! Full and wide outside off and he made room and smashed that wide of extra cover
19.3
2
Jadeja to Harbhajan Singh, 2 runs, flat delivery and chipped down to deep midwicket, only a couple though

Dhoni has a cha with Jadeja. Johnson walks in. The umpires are checking to see if the batsmen crossed during the dismissal. Harbhajan it is on strike

Stunning work by Raina under pressure

Jadeja to Pollard, OUT, Raina takes a stunner at long-on and he seems to be in pain! Pollard makes room and thumps it flat down the ground and Raina manages to time his dive well and takes it inches from the ground, Raina dives and covers his eyes, something must have gone in and he's been given out after studying replays

Pollard making his team look silly for promoting Rayudu above him

19.1
6
Jadeja to Pollard, SIX runs, what a way to begin the final over! Flatter delivery outside off and he gets on his knee and whams it flat over long-off

Jadeja to defend the 19 needed off the last over!
