Nitin Sundar's Bulletin is ready. And that is all we have for you for the time being. Later, of course, Sriram Veera will have more stories to tell from Durban. Do join us for the double-header tomorrow. Okay bye
S Badrinath is the Man of the Match for his superb innings. He says: "I am really happy with the innings. To be able to see the team through to the end. It wasn't easy to start off with, but once I got in I made sure I made it count. Totally different conditions to what we get in India, so really happy that I could do well here."
Jamie How: "To restrict Chennai to 150, I thought the boys bowled really well. The bowling and fielding were the positives, but we didn't really turn up with the bat. Come Wednesday, against Victoria, we will be looking to bounce back."
MS Dhoni: "Well of course it is really good to start such a tournament with a big win. Especially when we lost wickets initially. These are the conditions where technique does matter, and Badri has a good technique. So good to see him perform. It is important to get momentum when you start off with a win."
Mitchell McClenaghan is the last man in here
Balaji, thala as allegedly referred to by Ashwin, to bowl
Arish: "Ashwin called Balaji 'Thala' in last ball.
thala - big boss/" I thought he said Bala. Sharp ears you have
Adam Milne is the new batsman
Swapnil R: "Heard someone sneeze just now - but there was no one other than me in the room, only to realize that it was Dhoni who sneezed quite close to the stump MIC." I can't verify that, though
Sen: "Murali was once run out in NZ when he ran across celebrate his team-mates century. He is probably trying to give it back!!" Sharp observation, but don't think Murali would bear grudges for so long. Not against men who had nothing to do with that at any rate. Meanwhile, Bollinger comes back
