12.10 am A few moments to catch my breath at the unbelievable finish. And then an even more unbelievable post-match presentation by Murali Kartik, who refused to ask Dhoni about that outburst and confrontation with the umpires in the final over. Dhoni even began by joking about it when Kartik asked about being there at the end. How do you let an entire presentation go by without referring to that? You ponder that, while on behalf of Varun and Ranjith, I'm signing off.

12.01 am We're all set for the presentation. In all that action, I forgot it's also MS Dhoni's 100th IPL win as captain. Quite a day for him. A nasty jar on the helmet, a fifty, and finger-pointing argument with the umpires.

Dhoni: is also the Man of the Match. What a day for him! "By being there at the end do you mean having a conversation with the umpires?" he smiles. "They were able to build up pressure right till the end. Once you win games like these, you are able to take a lot. But it's important to work on the negatives that have not gone well, while enjoying the win. Otherwise it can come back to hurt us later in the tournament. The outfield is big and fast. The ball was coming on nicely in the second half. In the last two overs, I felt we had to get two hits. If the wicket is not good, then it becomes slow. At the end of the day, individuals commit mistakes but the team has to take the blame if you have lost. It's important to see if we made an error in execution of plans (while bowling) or the opposition batsmen batted really well. We have got very good support over here, thanks to them. Not to forget, one of my biggest innings came here so special attachment with this place. Good things is we have won the game here so it gives us the liberty to test a few bowlers (in next game against KKR)."

11.48pm That last over was possibly the most action-packed in IPL history. It began with Jadeja falling over while hitting a six - how do you maintain balance to connect cleanly while falling over? It had a no-ball call reversed and the unprecedented sight of Dhoni marching on to the field (keep a watch for how he's sanctioned for this) to argue with the umpires. And then a last-ball six to win it. CSK just keep finding ways to win. And Stokes has another memory of last-over sixes in a defeat to add to his bank...

11.50 pm Rahane: "I don't thinks so (I would have done anything different). Credit to our bowlers, we thought 150 was really low. Just because of Shreyas and Archer we got that many. We knew that if we take wickets early in the Powerplay we'll be in the game. Fielding will be very crucial we knew and we did well. Sanju was back that was a plus point. Jaydev was bowling really well so he came back and Riyan Parag, we thought we could get a few good overs. I still feel we need to win those crunch moments. Lots to learn for me as well, this is a challenge for me and I need to learn from my experiences."

Rayudu: It was a little tough going. I'm happy I'm coming into the groove. We both (Dhoni and him) are really experienced players. I'm happy we could take the team out of trouble today. Not really any pressure at all. I know I've been getting out, but not in a pattern. It's important to contribute to a win like this when the team is down. We definitely believed (18 runs off the last over) Jaddu, we all know he can hit it. The first ball off Stokes was unbelievable. He's coming into his groove, he has always been extremely talented. And everyone knows about his fielding too. Hopefully (this innings is a turnaround). I've been slowly pegging away with 20s on difficult wickets. Today was also a difficult one. You have to just carry on when it's your day."

Stokes to Santner, SIX runs, Santner finishes off in style What. A. Finish. CSK have won. They've stolen this. Amazing, amazing win. This was bowled full and outside off, Santner was probably expecting it, given that Stokes had been trying that, moved into position just enough to be able to extend his arms and loft it high and handsome over long-on. I repeat. What a win!

Stokes to Santner, 1 wide, And now that's been called a wide! Stokes went for the one wide outside off, and it is moving away a bit ends up outside the tram line!

The square leg umpire over-ruled the straight one for that no-ball call. And we saw captain cool, well lose his cool

Stokes to Santner, 2 runs, wide of off and Santner stretches out and tries to swat it straight but it bounces in front of long-on

Stokes to Santner, 2 runs, another no-ball for height this time slower ball goes wrong ends up above waist height and Santner is able to shovel-flick it away. Okay scratch that, they have revoked that no-ball. And unprecedented - Dhoni is walking on the field to argue with the umpires He's arguing with them, Stokes is in the thick of it. Scenes! Scenes! Dhoni will earn himself a sanction. And CSK are going to be docked 'fairplay' points. The umpire had stuck his hand out, but the square leg umpire said that was not a no-ball

Santner in. 8 needed off 3

Stokes to Dhoni, OUT, yorked him Stokes nails the perfect ball at the right time. Tails in between bat and leg to shatter the stumps. Dhoni was looking to give himself room

MS Dhoni b Stokes 58 (76m 43b 2x4 3x6) SR: 134.88

Dhoni's running lots of twos. Four twos will do it...
