and he is the last man out too! Early finish here as Mitchell McClenaghan pokes away from the body, getting a thick edge. Hayden at wide slip flies to his lift to pouch this. Comprehensive win for Chennai
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
Mason couldn't build a long innings here, though! Went for another big shot, across the line, and it flies off the back of the bat, to third man
that will do for Mason. Into the V. Behind the wicket. Edged over slip
looks for the big shot again but is beaten outside off this time
where have you been hiding Michael mason? First ball, and he nonchalantly lofts it over cow corner for six! Easy as Sunday morning. Well it is Sunday morning already in some parts of the world
he is bowling a thala here - big boss, in Tamil. Straight ball, clears front leg and slogs, and plays it on to the stumps
chipped to long-on for one
Balaji, thala as allegedly referred to by Ashwin, to bowl
backing away, looking at third man, but doesn't do the vital thing - make contact
short ball, clears the front leg, and pulls, is not even close to making contact
sliced over cover
Arish: "Ashwin called Balaji 'Thala' in last ball.
thala - big boss/" I thought he said Bala. Sharp ears you have
looks to run this to third man, is beaten
Adam Milne is the new batsman
what I can verify is that Bollinger has got a wicket here! Griggs backs away, looking to upper-cut, but all he manages is a soft edge that settles with Dhoni
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
back of a length, steered to third man for one
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
clears the front leg and sweeps, along the ground, gets just a single
chips down the track again and lofts it between long-on and deep midwicket. Gets four
chips down the track, helps it into the off side. Tries a non-existent second, is sent back, but Bala's throw is too high
worked away with the turn for one
looks for the big slog sweep, beaten by a sharp offbreak that bounces into his shoulder
shortish, pulled away for one
Ashwin to bowl
full toss, dragged along to midwicket for one
