At Dr D. Y. Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai, April 22, 2010. Chennai Super Kings won by 38 runs. ‡Chennai Super Kings 142-7 (20 overs) (S. Badrinath 37, M. S. Dhoni 30; R. J. Harris 3-29); Deccan Chargers 104 (19.2 overs) (D. E. Bollinger 4-13). MoM: D. E. Bollinger.
This was a lame affair, and the Chargers could blame only themselves for a hopeless response to a modest Chennai total. Gilchrist continued his horrible batting form - only 45 runs in his last six innings - and the menacing Bollinger ended the champions' hopes of retaining their title.
