Champions League T20 couldn't have asked for a better finale when two IPL giants lock horns for the coveted title. Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders will fight for the T20 supremacy at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru tonight. Catch all the live cricket score and live updates of the match here (LIVE SCORECARD)

Chennai captain MS Dhoni and KKR captain Gautam Gambhir have different styles and they both will be keen to make a statement against each other. While Gambhir is aggressive and wears his emotion on his sleeve, Dhoni is the calmest being on the field. However, they both have brilliant captaincy records.

Both the teams have been there and done all that before and know what it is like to play on the big stage. No silverware for quite some time means that Chennai will be hungrier than ever. These two teams have given us some thrilling contests in the past and it promises to be another such night where cricket will be the winner. We just hope for the rains to stay away and allow us to get a full game in.

MS DHONI, CSK Skipper starts off saying that it was a fantastic game for them, starting with the toss, their spinners bowled well. They did not field well and did not start well. Credits Raina for batting well, he hit the spinners really well. Mentions that Negi is not afraid to not toss the ball, so he got rewards for his courage. Credits Gambhir for batting well and that made his left-arm spinners not bowl well. Adds that it is important to get into the knockouts first, since anything can happen in the finals. Confesses that their mistakes in the past did cost them and they rectified it today. Credits Kuldeep for having a good tournament as he too was not afraid to flight the ball. It is a good experience for youngsters to learn from the youngsters.

!

GAUTAM GAMBHIR, KKR Skipper says that they showed a lot of character today. The journey is not over and to win 14 games on the trot is not easy. Mentions that they will just hope to keep improving. Adds that they never wanted to go for 200, the ball was gripping so they thought 170 was enough. Adds that Kuldeep was a bright star for them.

!

KKR did miss the services of Narine but today none of their bowlers had an answer to the onslaught from Raina. Kuldeep, Chawla, Pathan all failed as CSK romped home despite losing their openers for a low score. Dhoni came in, at the end to finish things off in his style. This is the first time CSK have won a trophy since 2011. KKR's streak of 14 games comes to a halt, just when they least wanted it.

!

Amazing scenes at the ground! Fireworks galore at the stadium, but the ones which matter, came off the bat of Suresh Raina. What a chase this was been and what a knock from the Southpaw. Smith got out in the first over but McCullum dragged his innings for sometime. Raina at the other end though, timed the ball well from his second ball. He never looked back after that and clobbered the KKR bowlers all over the park. Pacers were cut and driven, spinners were hit all round the park and into the stands. And once dew set in, it became impossible to stop Raina.
