Sehwag: "I didn't think 187 was short. But the fifth bowler cost us. Both me and Malik gave away runs. Glenn and Asif have been great, Sangwan and YO Mahesh have been learning things from them. The wicket was fantastic and I would have elected to field first had I won the toss."

Dhoni: "We would have liked to win the game in the 19th over but I guess it was good for the spectators. It can't get better than this. We needed to focus on the weakness after the loss and plug the gaps. Our first four wins were very crucial as it gave us time to adjust. Our fielding was not great, Viru's side was great there and also they bowled lots of yorkers. Our bowlers need to focus on it. Fleming played well and Albie played a crucial big over late in the innings" . Man of the Match: Dhoni! Hmm... That was a bit strange but yeah who am I to question.

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Alvida.

Shoaib Malik to Badrinath, 1 run, Almost caught but Chennai win! What a dramatic finish. Great effort from Shikhar Dhawan at deep midwicket boundary. Badri leaned forward and swung a loopy flighted delivery well to the left of deep midwicket but Shikar Dhawan rushed across quick and dived full stretch and some how managed to get his left hand to the rapidly dipping delivery. It was a incredible effort from him to get there and almost pull off a catch. But Gony and Badri have done the job when it mattered for Chennai. Phew. What a game.

Sehwag has a lengthy chat with Malik

Mahesh to Dhoni, OUT, What a stunning catch from AB. Dhoni had drilled a fullish delivery towards long-on and it was dipping rapidly on AB who was rushing forward. He dived forward to get his palms under the ball. Allan Border would understand Dhoni's feelings. He was out to a similar catch by Jadeja in the 1992 World Cup.
