Time for RCB v RR. Hop over.

Jadeja is Man of the Match. Jadeja: "It was crucial for us to win this game. There was not enough time to think when I went in, I decided to see it and hit it. I tried to bowl slower in the air, which worked. I played few good shots for my team."

MS Dhoni: "We did not bat well, it is one area where we would like to be more consistent. They batted brilliantly first six overs, few wickets and run-outs brought us back. Bringing the spinners late helped us to rotate. People think it is a T20 game, you have to slog everything, it is not like that. There are two types of batsmen, one who don't think and go after everything, and others who plan and target bowlers. We want him [Jadeja] to be really comfortable in the dressing room. He is loving the part where we are calling him Sir, but it is the one from Hindi [meaning head] and not from English. I don't think he knows that."

Gautam Gambhir: "Some schoolboy errors to be honest. When you bat first, you cannot be 46 for 1 and then 91 for 8. The pitch gets better under lights. Both Senanayake and Narine did a fantastic job by taking it till the last over. We have not been professional enough and not been upto the mark. You cannot expect your bowlers to defend 119 on such a beautiful wicket."

--------------------------------------------------------------

Arjun: "Gambhir calls this a beautiful wicket. #sigh" When you play spin so well ...

They brought it up to 50 off the final five, and found someone to do the job, yet again. And won with five balls to spare, Chennai Super Kings, the IPL rockstars

With this attack and this pitch, KKR shouldn't be losing any home game, but their batting woes are blunting the first two factors.

Narine gets the purple cap. Says 20 more runs would have helped

sundar: "I think CSK finds it insulting to chase down 6 an over. They deliberately jack up the RRR to 10 an over before they start the chase.."

Josh: "CSK owe this victory to Jadeja. 3 wickets in the KKR innings to prevent any rebuilding then this blistering riposte to see them over the line! MoM for me.."

Ravi: "If there is one team that can win even after reversing the batting order, it is CSK."
