...7th successive win for the Super Kings which means that they have equalled the IPL record, Bangalore have done it before. It went all the way to the last over before Bravo bowled a superb one to control the runs. Chennai now have the Orange Cap, the Purple Cap and, most importantly, a big lead at the top of the points table.

Post-match presentation

David Hussey: "Probably the last three overs with the ball (we let it go). Shaun Marsh and David Miller fantastic partership. I reckon we can five out of six."

MS Dhoni: "I won't say it is a fortress, I don't think we have performed as well as in the fourth edition of the IPL. We are getting better with every game. We did really well today, Raina batted well with Hussey, the bowling department also overall quite happy, just one tactical error in bringing in Raina. Performance was really great. We had four fast bowlers, in this format if you are doing well, just go through with them, if you hold them for later they could also go for runs."

Man of the Match is Suresh Raina. "Feels amazing when you know you have won the game, last hundred I missed out in South Africa. 180 target is not safe on this track."

Righto, that's a wrap on our coverage for the first game. Hop over here for RCB v Pune.

Dwayne Bravo to Gony, no run

swing and miss, Chennai have won by 15 runs in the end...

Bravo incidentally has the Purple Cap now.

Dwayne Bravo to Sathish, OUT

gone, lbw, Bravo gets his third! very full, yorker length and he was looking to hit it away, gets it on his toe and looks plumb, given too, Satish's gone for a duck

Rajagopal Sathish lbw b Bravo 0 (1b 0x4 0x6 2m) SR: 0
Dwayne Bravo to Miller, 1 run

very full yet again and that's crunched down to long-on for only a single

Dwayne Bravo to Miller, 2 runs

full outside the off and he's hit it through the extra-cover region for a couple of runs to get him to his 50, well played Miller, who's clearly been Punjab's best batsman this season

Dwayne Bravo to Gurkeerat, OUT

slower one and that is out too, he was looking to flick it over the leg side, but does not get too much bat there, it goes high in the air and straight to Hussey at long-on

Gurkeerat Singh Mann c Hussey b Bravo 0 (1b 0x4 0x6 1m) SR: 0

Gurkeerat Singh at six.

Dwayne Bravo to Marsh, OUT

bowled him, first ball on target and he was looking to slap it over the mid-wicket region, gets an edge and the leg-stump are not only on the ground but is also in a couple of pieces, well done Marsh, well played but Chennai might just have edged ahead here

Shaun Marsh b Bravo 73 (51b 8x4 2x6 77m) SR: 143.13

19 from the last, Bravo with the ball, discussion with Dhoni and sorts out his field. 31 from his first three.

Chris Morris 3-0-31-0
Dwayne Bravo 3-0-31-0
Morris to Miller, no run

well bowled by Morris, very full and slightly wide, he needed to get some bat on it but does not and it's gone through to the keeper

Morris to Marsh, 1 run

full on the off stump and that's crunched away to the point region where there are three fielders, goes on the bounce to him and it's fielded well by Hussey

Ajay: "Did Mr.Cool made a mistake by bowling out Mohit & Albie???"

Morris to Miller, 1 run

slogged away from the off stump line, was on a good length and he manages to pull it straight to the fielder at mid-wicket region, single

Morris to Miller, FOUR runs

poor, poor delivery, down the leg side and he's flicked it away, over the short fine-leg for a four, this is getting more interesting every passing ball!

dinu: "Cant really understand the reason why dhoni did not ask jadeja to bowl..if he had bowled a couple of overs ,iam sure the required rate would be even more it almost looks like punjab can make it, if they keep going the way they do right now..."

Morris to Marsh, 1 run

round the stumps, fuller on his pads, flicked away to the leg side for a single

Morris to Marsh, FOUR runs

shot and Raina has misfielded a straightforward one! good shot, full-toss, punched down the ground and Raina misses it, how on earth!

30 from 2 needed.

Dwayne Bravo to Miller, SIX runs

up and over for a six! it was slower and fuller and the inside-out shot from Miller goes to wide long-off, Ashwin's waiting there but his jump cannot get close to it, six!

Narinder: "Really a patience test for MS....he needs to stick with his 20+ over and they'll take the game away....Chris and Bravo should see the game through!"

Dwayne Bravo to Marsh, 1 run

full-toss on his pads and scooped away to deep mid-wicket for a single

Dwayne Bravo to Marsh, 2 runs

what an effort from Raina, that's an awesome one, hit hard straight and he runs from long-on, goes for a catch but hes far away, still sticks his right arm to stop it and restricts it to two

Dwayne Bravo to Miller, 1 run

top-edge this time and it goes on the bounce to long-off, Hussey comes around to field it

Dwayne Bravo to Marsh, 1 run

dropped is it? it was hit really hard back to the bowler and he looks to put his hand out almost trying to keep it away from him, hits him and goes to long-on

Dwayne Bravo to Miller, 1 leg bye

on his pads and he wants to flick it over deep square-leg, hits his pads and rolls over for a leg-bye

42 needed from three.
