That's all we have for tonight. Don't forget to join us for tomorrow's double header. Goodbye

"I was just being myself when I batted," says Man of the Match Ravindra Jadeja. "The wicket was not easy to bat on. We were just thinking one or two overs could change the game. We just backed ourselves. There was dew for the last four-five overs."

"We made a mistake," says MS Dhoni. "Our intent was good, we went with a positive attitude, but we needed to assess the pitch. We went too hard at the ball. After that Manhas and Bravo gave us a crucial partnership. Jadeja's hitting, the way he went after Hogg who was tough to hit, was very crucial. His innings changed the course of the match. We improved today, but we lacked in the batting. We didn't adapt to the wicket, and play for what the par score here is. The bowling performance was fantastic."

"Last three overs of their batting innings, Dhoni and Jadeja took the game away from us," says Adam Voges."We bowled really well until that point, but they were unbelievable, and we ended up chasing 20-30 more than we should have. Hoggy bowled beautifully, as did the others, but Dhoni did what he does best."

CSK, who struggled for the first 14 overs of this game, have come back from the brink, and now are a very good chance of making it to the semi-finals. The only team that can prevent them from doing so are Lahore Lions, who will need to win big in their last match. It all changed with Jadeja and Dhoni laying into some ordinary death bowling. The last three overs went for 54, and it was all too much to chase against CSK on a slow pitch

  • Super Kings move closer to semifinals with 13-run win

    After a slow start on a slow Bangalore pitch, a late-overs blitz from Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni muscled Chennai Super Kings to what proved an amply defendable target against Perth Scorchers

  • The Chinnaswamy turns yellow

    The Chinnaswamy stadium spent the entire Dolphins-Lahore Lions match waiting to see Chennai Super Kings. But Robbie Frylinck made the wait worthwhile. So did MS Dhoni
