Kartik to Dhoni, SIX runs, seals it with a six, down the ground and a big hammer over long-on for a big one, finishes it in style

So a comprehensive win for Chennai on a near-perfect day. Once they dismissed Brendon McCullum, Chennai never looked back. Oram and Murali led a fine bowling effort before Hayden and Dhoni finished it off easily. They've played three good games so far and remain the team to beat in this competition.

Bangalore v Rajasthan starts in a bit. George Binoy is ready for the commentary and you can switch screens for that. Chelsea lead at Stamford Bridge. Thanks for joining us for this one. Good night, and good luck

Kartik to Hayden, FOUR runs, down the leg side and easily done, helped along to fine leg for a four, only five needed now

Hayden needs 16 more for the orange cap. Can't manage it in this game, though. Kartik on now.
