HARBHAJAN SINGH has been named the Man Of The Match for his exceptional figures of 4-1-17-2. That is all for this game. Do hop over for the eagerly awaited Hyderabad-Mumbai contest.
Earlier in the day, Chennai huffed and puffed to 160 after looking close to reaching 200 at the halfway mark. Faf du Plessis anchored the innings but then when he and Raina fell, the hosts seemed to be losing their way before Dhoni and Rayudu ensured that they got a defendable score.
Were the tourists too careful? They looked to play out Tahir and even Harbhajan Singh. Waited and waited for the seamers to come back on but Dhoni played his trump cards to perfection. When Kuggeleijn came back on to bowl, Punjab needed 46 from the final 3 overs. He got the big wicket of Rahul and conceded just 7. That spoilt the plans and the chances of a Russell-Southee encore from the Bangalore-Kolkata match did not happen.
Punjab did make a fist of the chase though. After losing 2 pretty quickly, the 110-run stand for the third wicket between Rahul and Sarfaraz seemed to get Punjab back on track. In fact at the halfway stage, both teams had the same score. But the timing of the attack - never came from the visitors.
Not quite surprising, if you are tuning in right now, after watching Chennai bat. The pitch was slowing down, was expected to get even slower and eventually, that is what happened. Decent bowling by the home side with only Kuggeleijn and Chahar proving to be expensive.

Scott Kuggeleijn To Sarfaraz Khan OUT!
OUT! Sarfaraz falls with 2 balls left in the game. A short ball, outside off, Sarfaraz looks to pull but plays this earlier than expected. That is primarily because of the ball coming on late. A top edge is induced, which is calmly taken by Faf du Plessis at long on. Though, he had to circle under it a bit. Useful knock by Khan, but one has to wonder - why did not the attack start during the 15th over? Left too much too late.

Deepak Chahar To David Miller OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Lock, stock and barrel. No Killer Miller show tonight. The virtue of keeping it full and straight. You miss, I hit. Full and in line of the stumps, Miller swings hard, only to miss. The stumps are a mess. The over which began so badly, has ended nicely for Chahar and Chennai.

Deepak Chahar To Sarfaraz Khan
ANOTHER NO BALL! Will Chahar be taken off for successive beamers? Nope. Since this was not dangerous, the umpire allows Chahar to bowl. Dhoni is furious though. He asks the bowler what is he trying. Deepak says that he is trying leg cutters. Immediately MS asks him to stop trying those. A high full toss outside off, Khan leaps and looks to go over the top but mistimes it over backward point. Two runs taken. FREE HIT CONTINUES...
18.1
nb
Deepak Chahar To Sarfaraz Khan
NO BALL! FOUR! Is this the point from where the momentum swings? The first ball of a new spell, Chahar looks for something different, trying a back of a hand slower ball. It turns out to be a high full toss and Sarfaraz just guides it over backward point for a boundary!
Deepak Chahar to bowl the 19th over.

Scott Kuggeleijn To Lokesh Rahul OUT!
OUT! Something had to give in and it has! Rahul holes out at deep mid-wicket! This is a huge blow for Punjab and the Chennai crowd has gotten even louder. A short ball dug in hard almost halfway down the track, Rahul fails to middle his pull. It goes off the top half of his bat and flies high towards deep mid-wicket. Jadeja there comes in a bit and takes a really safe catch. Brilliant result for Chennai, they're tightening the noose on the visitors now.

Imran Tahir To Lokesh Rahul
Floated around off, Rahul comes down the track and plays it with soft hands towards mid-wicket. They run the first one hard and look for two but seeing Jadeja is after it. Sarfaraz says no for it.
Strategic Break! KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan have continued the good work. They have got Punjab into a position where they can dictate terms in the game. They though need to ensure that wickets are not lost and one of them has to stay here till the end. 61 runs needed off the last 6 overs should not be difficult as long as a set batsman is out in the middle. Meanwhile, Chennai would desperately want a few quick wickets which will put massive pressure on the away side. Imran Tahir to bowl after the break...

Ravindra Jadeja To Lokesh Rahul
Not out! Rahul was short but the bails have not come off so he is safe here. Rahul has to be lucky here. But that's what Dhoni has done through out his life and he shows us his exceptional skills here. Rahul just tickles this tossed up ball on his pads to the on side. Dhoni behind goes to his left, collects the ball and throws it on the stumps without even looking. The ball hits the stumps but the bails are not dislodged. Replays show that Rahul was well short. The ball ricochets off the stumps and goes fine. The batsman pick up a run on the overthrow.
Hold on! Lots of confusion here! Rahul was looking for a quick single and is sent back late. Dhoni flicks the ball onto the stumps but the bails have not come off. The third umpire has taken it upstairs though...

Beauty! Absolute beauty. The ball every leg spinner loves. Flighted on off, the ball spins away after pitching. Sarfaraz gets beaten trying to defend it. Dhoni takes the bails off in a flash. Tahir goes up asking for a catch out but the umpire turns it down.
Strategic break! Punjab have rebuilt well after the two early strikes. The current duo has added a fifty-run stand but the job is not yet done. The pitch is one where new batsmen will find it difficult and it is imperative for Rahul and Sarfaraz to continue if the away side needs to get on top here. Meanwhile, Chennai will know one wicket could see another few follow.

Excellent googly. Sarfaraz completely misreads it. It is on middle and leg, Sarfaraz gets on his front foot and looks to drive it to the off side. He misses and the ball hits him on the pads. Tahir asks the question but the umpire turns it down. They think about the review but they don't take it. Hawk-Eye later on shows it was a bad decision not to take it upstairs as the ball was going to hit the middle and leg pole.

Harbhajan Singh To Mayank Agarwal OUT!
OUT! That is the second wicket in the over! Harbhajan is pumped up and so is the Chennai crowd! A flighted ball on middle, Mayank Agarwal looks to come down the track and hit it over long on but fails to reach the pitch of the ball. Agarwal though goes through with the shot and fails to hit it long. The ball goes high and Faf du Plessis at long on settles under the ball and completes a good catch. A double-wicket maiden! The hosts are right on top here.

Harbhajan Singh To Chris Gayle OUT!
OUT! Harbhajan strikes in his very first over and the dangerous Chris Gayle is back in the hut. Just the kind of start Chennai wanted. The fans here are going bonkers. The ploy to give the new ball to Harbhajan has worked. Flighted delivery outside off, the ball spins slightly away after pitching. Gayle swings his bat and gets a feather on it. Dhoni behind the stumps, makes no mistake and takes the catch. He goes up in celebration. Gayle thinks about the review but does not take it. It was a good decision as the Snickometer later on shows there was a big spike as the ball went past the blade.
