that's it. All over. Dhoni slams a full toss to the square leg boundary. A poor ball, the dew might have had something to do about it.
10 pm Chennai Super Kings have scored their fourth win in five games, drawing level with league leaders Kings XI Punjab, who have four wins in four games. Sunrisers are second from bottom now, with only one win in four games.
Shikhar Dhawan: "We never knew that dew was going to come tonight, the ball got wet and out spinners could not grip it. It was coming nicely on to the bat. In the first innings the wicket was dry and the ground was dry so the ball was stopping on the batsman, it was difficult to hit the ball. We planned to get 150 but we did not know dew was going to come ... not going to take the credit away from them. They batted well."
Harry: "Good tactics from CSK by not loosing any wickets to Steyn. He would have been pumped up if he had got one."
MS Dhoni: "I think the game really changed once they changed the ball, when the ball was not wet it started doing things until it got wet again. It was a decent total, the dew got worse, the opposition bowlers weren't able to execute plans. We would have batted first as well, so a good toss to lose. Overall we are playing good cricket, everyone has contributed, not everyone in our top seven has been tested, openers doing a fantastic job." He has high praise for the Sharjah crowd, they were out in force today.
Dwayne Smith is the Man of the Match for his 66 from 46 balls. Smith: "The plan was to stay calm and be positive, don't worry about anything, we can catch up anytime. Try to get as much runs early up and make it easier for the other guys. Very good guys in CSK, very good staff, it's brilliant."
Thank you for all your emails today. That's all I've got for you. We'll be back on the IPL treadmill tomorrow. Cheers.
he's cut that straight to point and Dhoni has set off, it was the googly, there should have been a run out at the bowler's end but the throw was too hard for Mishra to collect and it missed
Surely Dhawan has to bring his field in to keep Manhas on strike by denying him singles?
Dhoni stays back and works the ball to long on, giving Manhas the hot seat.
Well, it should have never come to six off the final over, but with Dhoni on strike CSK are clear favourites. Mishra to bowl the final over. Sammy has not bowled in the innings.
Manhas manages to get an inside edge on the ball to send it towards fine leg. The fielder cannot prevent the second and so Dhoni will have strike for the final over
that's the second dot ball! Ishant shortens his length and gets it to move away a touch. Manhas swishes without moving his feet and is beaten outside off again
he's bowled the first dot ball. Good length outside off, it holds its line and beats Manhas' tame prod. No footwork
Can Ishant bowl three dots at Manhas?
Lokesh Kaza: "A last minute twist in the tale perhaps?"
he's been bowled! The length was a bit too full to stay back to. The line was too straight to try and steer towards point. There was a gap between bat and pad and Ishant went straight through it to hit middle stump. the ball actually nipped back into the left-hander, grazed the thigh and then hit the stumps
a full toss from round the wicket, driven to long on for a single
Jadeja steps out but is cramped for room by a short of a length delivery, he manages to get some bat on it to play it on the leg side
once again he fumbles the ball at backward point, allowing the single
poor fielding at point, the ball was cut straight to Karn Sharma but he fumbled it, he's now wiping it furiously with a towel so I think it is pretty wet from the dew
round the wicket into the left-hander, Jadeja drives on the front foot to long off
Thileeban: "Now, Dhoni's aim is to take it to the last over "
driven off the back foot to deep cover for a single
Dhoni steps out but is beaten by the length and gets hit on the pad, Jadeja begins to run the leg bye but Bhuvneshwar gets to the ball quickly to prevent it
Jadeja charges but mis-times the shot to long-on, he was looking to go high over midwicket
short of a length on the hips, Jadeja glances to long leg to ensure Steyn ends the game wicketless
short of a length around off, played off the back foot to backward point
Dhoni sprints the single, taking on Finch at mid-off, superb running after pushing the ball slowly to the fielder
good length on off stump, defended back to the bowler
Jadeja jumps across his stumps and works the ball off his pads through square leg
