Thanks for joining us. This is Shashank Kishore saying goodbye on behalf of Ashish Pant and Chandan Duroah. Cheers, take care.

11.01pm CSK have turned a banana peel of a chase into an absolute cruise at dewy Chepauk. Ravindra Jadeja led their turnaround after KKR set themselves up superbly in the Powerplay, and then with the bat, Gaikwad and Mitchell laid the foundation of a chase that they were always in control of. And that means, KKR have been consigned to their first defeat this season.

Ravindra Jadeja is PoM for his 3/18. "My title hasn't yet been verified, hopefully they'll give me one [laughs]. I always enjoy my bowling on this track. I was hoping the ball grips a little, if you bowl in the right areas with helps you. For visiting teams it takes time to settle in and plan, you hardly get 2-3 days, for a visiting team to come here, play and identify the surface is little difficult. We know our conditions better."

Ruturaj Gaikwad: Bit of nostalgia for me. My first IPL fifty, Mahi bhai was with me to finish the match. With Jinx injured, onus was on me to bat through, didn't want to put the youngsters in a difficult situation. Was a 150-160 wicket. Jaddu always comes in after the power play with momentum in the spin department. With this team, I don't really need to tell things to anyone. Everyone's in a great head space, Mahi bhai and Fleming are still around to take those calls. I wouldn't say mine is a slow start, in T20s there are times you nick off one or two balls, sometimes you need a bit of luck to get going, maybe something for experts to talk about, with my strike rate (laughs)."

Daryl Mitchell: "Always nice to play in front of a special crowd, pretty cool. When you know surface is on the slower side, it's about building a partnership and take it as deep as we could. He's world class, for me it's coming up with plans to put pressure on those guys. The way Rutu got the job out there was amazing to see. There was a bit of turn and bounce, for us it was about building partnerships and allow ourselves into a position to finish it off. I don't mind wherever I bat, here to win games of cricket and get the job done.

Shreyas Iyer, tonight's losing captain: It's deafening out here, will try to express how I'm feeling. We fell short in terms of assessing the wicket. Phenomenal start in the power play but we couldn't capitalize. Couldn't assess conditions, pitch completely changed after power play and to score runs, it wasn't easy. They know conditions pretty well, bowled according to their plan. It was tacky, wasn't easy to go big right from first ball. It changed tremendously after power play and the way we were trying to construct our innings, didn't go to plan. We take those learnings and move forward. We were in a comfortable place, thought 160-170 was a great score. That was our plan but when you lose consecutive wickets it's difficult to carry forward momentum. Have to go back to our drawing board and learn, just a matter of one match and one innings, glad it happened at the start of the tournament. When we go back, we know our home conditions pretty well, important to analyze and assess situations and make the best use of it.

Arora to Dube, OUT

looks to finish it off in style but misses this full and straight delivery and sees the stumps flattened. May have been better off trying to hit it straight rather than attempting a heave. As Dube was out, there's a roar that engulfs Chepauk. And that's because MS Dhoni is walking out to bat

Arora to Dube, SIX runs

he has muscled this somewhere into the train station behind the stadium! Arora bowls length on middle and leg, Dube is waiting for it and then pounces on it when it arrives. Incredible hit

another short ball on leg stump, through early with the pull this time as he's beaten

hustled for pace as Arora bowls a bumper, Dube is hit high on the bat as he tries to pull, lands short of the bowler on his followthrough

struck on the pad by a fizzy delivery but this pitched miles outside leg. Shreyas Iyer opts for a review simply because they have one left. Will stay as not out.

Varun to Dube, SIX runs

this is even bigger! Too much width, too full and right into his slot to swing freely. Clears wide long-off and sails way back into the second tier.
