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 Sam Curran
Swing and a miss to end the game. A length ball, outside off, Curran swings hard but misses. CHENNAI WIN BY 22 RUNS AND GO ATOP THE POINTS TABLE.

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.

Scott Kuggeleijn To Sarfaraz Khan
Outside off, Sarfaraz backs away, looks to play the reverse scoop, but misses. Technically, Punjab cannot win the game now.

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
A short ball, outside off, barely comes off the deck, Sarfaraz is early into his pull and mistimes it towards deep mid-wicket. Just one.

Very full outside off, driven towards long off for a run.

Deepak Chahar To Sarfaraz Khan
A terrific yorker, on middle, SK digs it out, gets an inside edge onto his pads and sneaks in a single.

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...

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.
