It was a spirited chase by Chennai. Raina and Parthiv set the things rolling for Chennai at the start and Albie Morkel turned it around after Raina's dismissal. Dhoni's dismissal was a crucial one as Albie was tied down by fuller deliveries in the end

Chennai would be waiting with bated breath for the result of tonight's match between Delhi and Mumbai, as a win for Mumbai would pave their way to the Semi final and also complete the semi final line up

Dhoni, is happy with the spirit shown by the team and feels that the match was lost in the middle overs, where they failed to get the boundaries flowing. He is also hopeful that Gilchrist does not fire in their final match against Deccan Chargers

Warne admits that he was a nervous man during the chase and is relieved that it is over

Albie Morkel is awarded the Man of the Match award
