1 MS Dhoni and S Badrinath added an unbroken 109-run stand from 65 deliveries to push Chennai Super Kings to a competitive total.
2 Within nine deliveries, Kolkata's last-game heroes, Brad Hodge and Manoj Tiwary, were back in the hut. Kolkata were always going to be struggling from that point on.
3 It needed a special innings from either Sourav Ganguly or Angelo Mathews but both failed. Ganguly couldn't break free against well-directed short-of-length deliveries into his body and Mathews fell, trying a fatal paddle sweep.
