187/4 (20.0/20)
176/6 (20.0/20)
Punjab Kings beat Chennai Super Kings by 11 runs
That is all we have from this exciting game. The action in the Indian T20 League continues on Tuesday, the 26th of April with Bangalore taking on Rajasthan at the MCA Stadium in Pune. That match will begin at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT). You can join us in advance for the build-up. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Shikhar Dhawan (88 off 59 balls) is the Player of the Match! 'Gabbar' as he is fondly called says that he believes in the process and focuses on that a lot. Adds that he keeps working on his skills and knows the result will take care of itself. Shares that the pitch was stopping a bit and when he tried to go for the big shots, he didn't connect well, so he kept calm, and held himself back for the end overs. Mentions that while batting first the plan is to get the boundaries and put pressure on the bowlers along with preserving the wickets. States that they have to avoid going into a shell and maintain a good balance. Smiles that he has become a senior and he gives a lot of input to the players and the captain. Further says that he advises the youngsters on how to keep their composure and avoid overthinking.
Mayank Agarwal, the captain of Punjab, starts by saying that they would like to win a few tosses and it's hard when you have to keep chasing the game from the start. Praises Arshdeep Singh for his bowling and lauds the effort of Kagiso Rabada as well. Feels that these two changed the course of the game for them. Adds that as a captain he has to think about being smart and the plan was to make the opposite team hit the big shots towards the longer part of the ground. Tells that it's been a great learning experience for him. Feels that it's very important for them to carry on with this momentum.
Kagiso Rabada comes up for a quick chat! The speedster says that in the Powerplay, they were a bit behind the rate but commended Shikhar Dhawan and Bhanuka Rajapaksa for their knocks. Smiles and praises Liam Livingstone for his few 'gentle' strokes as well. Tells that after that the bowling attack put its hand up. Further says that Arshdeep Singh has been the best death bowler in the competition and is very talented. Kagiso adds that he knows that he will bowl at the death and states that everyone else knows the role. Lauds the bowling effort of the whole group with a special mention for Rishi Dhawan who bowled the final over. Mentions that it's nerve-wracking when you bowl to MS Dhoni with not a single red jersey in the crowd and credits Rishi for pulling it off.
Ravindra Jadeja, the captain of Chennai, says that they started well with the new ball but gave away 10-15 runs too many in the end overs. Mentions that they didn't execute their plans well. Adds that Rayudu was batting brilliantly but again says that they should have restricted Punjab under 170-175. Tells that they are not getting good starts in the first 6 overs and they need to improve on that and come back stronger.
Punjab made it difficult for themselves but their pace attack looked in good touch and they did come through when their side needed it the most. After a terrific start in the Powerplay from Sandeep Sharma and Rishi Dhawan, both of whom were making a comeback into the side, Punjab had the upper hand. Rayudu did take away the game from them for a brief spell and the spinners went for a bit of tap. Sharma did go for 23 runs in his last over but Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh and Rishi Dhawan held their nerves at the death to get their side back to winning ways. Stay tuned for the interviews...
Chennai almost pulled it off and a big reason for that is the knock Ambati Rayudu played. Rayudu single-handedly dragged them back into the game and put them in a winning position. MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja hit a few lusty blows but in the end, it was a bridge too far. Chennai have now lost six out of their eight games and need a miracle to make it through to the playoffs. The top order failed miserably but Ruturaj Gaikwad showed some form which is a positive sign for them.
Yet another riveting contest but brilliant death bowling from Punjab has seen them hold on to a crucial win. They went for less than 9 runs an over to seal the victory and in doing so have completed the double over the reigning champions.

Rishi Dhawan To MS Dhoni OUT!
OUT! DHONI HOLES OUT! Rishi Dhawan has hit the jackpot with a very poor delivery. Full and down the leg side, Dhoni tries to smash it over square leg but it takes the bottom of the bat and flies to deep mid-wicket. Jonny Bairstow takes the catch and he is the most unpopular man at the Wankhede currently. This game is done and dusted now.

Strategic break. 47 needed now from 24 balls and from here, it's Chennai's game to lose, have to say. After losing Ruturaj Gaikwad, Chennai seemed out of the game but what a special knock this has been from Ambati Rayudu! He has put his side right on top of proceedings and has given Mayank Agarwal a headache. Punjab need wickets and they need them quickly in order to salvage this match. Arshdeep Singh (2-0-10-1) is back on. Can he conjure up some magic here?

There is an appeal from the bowler but the umpire shakes his head and it looks to have pitched outside the leg stump. Mayank Agarwal does go for the review. There's no bat involved and Ball Tracking confirms that the ball is indeed pitching well outside the leg stump. Just the leg bye then.
Shout for an lbw! It's not given and Punjab are reviewing. There is no bat involved, the UltraEdge has confirmed. Ball Tracking shows that the ball had pitched outside leg. Ravindra Jadeja is safe to continue...

Strategic break. Well, the Punjab bowlers have made a strong start but Chennai are just starting to get back in the game. Sandeep Sharma and Rabada were economical at the start and Sharma also got rid of Uthappa. After that Arshdeep Singh and Rishi Dhawan picked up a wicket each to put Punjab in the driving seat. Ruturaj Gaikwad is still out there and Ambati Rayudu has come out with some intent. 124 runs are now needed off 66 balls and wickets will play a huge role now.
