Yuvraj flicks the last ball off his pads to the fine leg boundary, Chennai have held their nerve to win a terrific match
Punjab chased bravely and were matching the asking-rate of 12 an over until they entered the final four overs. Dhoni gave the ball to Raina because his other bowlers had gone for plenty and the spinner bowled two economical overs that broke Punjab's chase. Chennai go to the top of the table with 11 points and a net run-rate that's better than Rajasthan's.
That's it from us at Cricinfo for today. It's been eventful. This is George Binoy signing off. Cheers.
