11.55pm CSK make it two out of two, and they look like a team extremely aware of their strengths and limitations, and extremely clear-headed as a result. Delhi have a bit to learn, and perhaps the arrival of Chris Morris is what their team balance needs. Anyway, that's that from me tonight. Our live show will keep going for a while, so I'll let our experts take over. Good night!
Shane Watson is the Player of the Match: "It was a little better to bat on than in Chennai, so it was good to get a few off the middle. I had a few calf injuries, and I tried to keep myself up and running through the Big Bash. Really enjoyed playing the PSL, and coming here with a bit of cricket under my belt really helps. Really good to connect with the Chennai guys again."
MS Dhoni: "The wicket turned more than expected. Second innings there was enough dew to make it slightly easier to bat on. I thought the bowlers did very well to restrict Delhi to 147. Losing Ngidi at the start of the tournament was a big blow, because he was our quickest bowler. We're well covered in other areas. We will never be a great fielding side, but we can be a safe fielding side. We'll keep losing or bleeding a few runs here and there, but as long as we use our experience, we'll make it up with our batting and bowling."
Kedar Jadhav: "It was a little bit on the slower side, especially when you have a target like this when you don't know whether to go for it or take it till the end. We were in control right through. Unfortunately I couldn't finish today. It's a big tournament, we're happy that we've won two games out of two, and we'll look to continue the momentum. As long as we keep playing this way, we're more than hopeful of repeating what we did last year."
Shreyas Iyer: "I personally felt it was difficult to get in on that wicket. We've played a few matches here before, I knew it was going to be slow, and get slower. That's why we chose to bat first. We were 10-15 runs short. I wouldn't blame the batting - it happens, you can't blame anyone in this situation. Still lot of positives to take from this match. We took it till the last over, so that is a plus point for the moment."
Praveen: "I dont like Dhoni in these situations. It was becasue of him Jadhav slowed down himself and ultimately got out. Dhoni should have asked him to get going while he takes time to settle. They should definitely think about run rate too in this tournament. There was much better chance to improve their run rate."
Bhalaji: "It would have been better to have Missy bowl the 18th, Rabada the 19th and then Paul/Ishant the 20th.... I dont mind the current game being a CSK supporter :P :P"
11.35pm This game seemed to be done and dusted half an hour ago, but CSK have huffed and puffed their way to this target. They never seemed under undue pressure, but taking it so deep and losing a wicket at an inconvenient time left a new batsman facing the pace and bounce of Kagiso Rabada. They've done the job in the end, though, but their net run rate might become an issue if it comes down to that. Won't come down to that if they keep winning, of course.
Wow. Two to get, three balls remaining.
Dwayne Bravo walks in.
Rabada comes back on with CSK needing just two. I'd have used him in the 19th and tried to swell the last-over target as much as possible.
It was always going to be about that one ball, wasn't it? Dhoni knew he'd get one in his slot, and he knew he'd hit it for six.
RISHU: "Why Mishra when 1 each of rabada and Paul is left? Interesting choice by Shreyas."
11 off 12. CSK should win this easily, unless... Here's Amit Mishra.
Cover point comes into the circle, extra-cover drops back onto the boundary.
Shivang: "How good was the comeback by Axar after 9 of the first over to finish of with figures of 4-0-16-0."
22 off 18. Keemo Paul returns.
That's five straight dots.
