Ruturaj Gaikwad has been named as the MAN OF THE MATCH.
So, that's it from this game. Both Chennai and Punjab are done with this season, the latter because they lost the game today. But it is Super Sunday and the action continues. In a must-win duel, Kolkata and Rajasthan take on each other. Each side would be looking to get the better of the other badly. That will make it a promising clash to watch. Switch tabs to catch all our coverage of that game.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Chennai opted to bowl first. They put up a disciplined performance throughout but lost the plot in the death overs where Hooda bagged some crucial runs, along with a half ton to himself. However, those were not enough it seems as Chennai pulled off a spectacular win, led by Gaikwad with the bat again.
Punjab were left clueless and were gasping for breath with the ball. They needed wickets like Chennai had gotten earlier with the ball. But they could absolutely manage just the one. No amount of bowling changes worked for KL Rahul. They were a touch sloppy in the field as well, which further compounded their woes. Jordan managed the only wicket but he was also the most expensive among the lot. Ashwin was exceptional, so too was Shami but they needed wickets which they could not get. Bishnoi and Neesham were on the expensive side, the former being way too expensive.
Chennai may have lost the plot with the ball towards the end but did a splendid job with the bat. Du Plessis and Gaikwad, the opening pair, got them off to a great start before du Plessis fell unfortunately, when he was close to his half ton. But that was all Chennai lost, the pair of Gaikwad and Ambati Rayudu finished things off well. Rayudu played second fiddle while it was a Gaikwad show all along, again. His third 50 on the trot and what a way for Chennai to finish off their campaign, they are out but bow out with 3 big back-to-back wins.
Well, a comfortable win for Chennai in the end. They win by 9 wickets and disappointment all round for Punjab. You could see their owners were disappointed and are in disbelief that they have now been knocked out of the tournament. Unfortunately for Rahul, this is not his year, as Punjab's captain. 5 wins on the trot was the maximum he could manage before back-to-back losses putting Punjab out of contention for a playoffs spot.

Chris Jordan To Faf du Plessis OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! KL Rahul completes the catch. Faf du Plessis found the spot to his pleasure a lot of times earlier on. Not this time though. It was a slower ball on middle, around 113 kph, Faf moves to the off side and looks to lap it over fine leg. Rahul sees that and he moves to his left, anticipating a catch of sorts. Faf laps it but does not get the timing as the ball was a slower one. Rahul moves to his left and completes a simple catch. Had it been a 131 kph delivery, maybe the batsman would have got some runs by stroking it well to the fine leg region.

Ravi Bishnoi To Faf du Plessis
NOT OUT! KL Rahul cannot believe it. Flatter ball outside off, Gaikwad cuts it. It is uppish and slightly ahead of Mandeep at point. Mandeep dives there and takes it and Punjab start celebrating. But the on-field umpire wants to have a look. It is referred upstairs. The third umpire has a look and from the replays he deems that as Mandeep takes the catch and falls onto the ground, the ball makes contact with the ground. So, not out.
Is that a catch? Has that been taken cleanly? The soft signal is out. Looks like the ball has touched the ground as Mandeep takes it. NOT OUT!

The googly, tossed up outside off, Faf looks to cut it but misses comepletely.
DRINKS! Chennai are motoring like anything here. One wonders where has this form been all along! With 10 wickets in hand, they need just 92 runs in 78 balls. Should be an easy prospect for them, if they maintain the momentum going. Punjab, on the other hand, need wickets thick and fast. They would be hoping that this break spoils Chennai's momentum.

On the pads, Faf turns it to the leg side for one.
NOT OUT! There is a clear gap between bat and pad. The ball has kissed the pad and not the bat. Du Plessis survives and Punjab's search for a wicket continues. Darted on the leg side, Faf looks to tickle it fine down the leg side but the ball kisses something and goes straight into the mitts off Rahul. Punjab players appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Du Plessis reviews it straightaway and the replay shows that the ball kisses his pad.
Review time. Faf has been adjudged out for a caught behind but he has pted to take the review straightaway.

James Neesham To Faf du Plessis
DROPPED! Not an easy catch at all. Fullish ball on the stumps, du Plessis looks to clobber this over the bowler's head. However, he ends up miscuing it. The ball goes high in the air towards long on. Two fielder converge. Hooda gets under it but it goes through his grasp. The batters take a couple.

Full toss outside off, it was off-pace. Ruturaj taps it through point. There was always two as it was hit to the longer part of the ground. Gaikwad comes back for the second.

Chris Jordan To Ruturaj Gaikwad
SIX! So often these young batsmen come down the ground and still control the shot well, for a boundary. Shortish ball on middle, Gaikwad comes down the track and heaves it over deep square leg for a biggie.

5 WIDES! Ohh dear, 5 dot balls and now this, for Shami. He bowls a good length ball well outside leg, trying to go for the inswinger. No chance either for the batsman or the keeper. It goes well wide of everybody to the fine leg fence for 5 runs off extras.

FOUR! Just beats the fielder for a boundary. Outside off on a good length, du Plessis stands tall and punches this through the covers. It is to the right of the sweeper cover fielder, Ravi Bishnoi. Ravi runs in that direction, puts in the dive but it sneaks under him and touches the ropes.

WIDE! Slips one down the leg side, Faf misses his flick. Rahul takes it and appeals for a caught behind, mostly to distract the umpire. His ploy fails as it is wided.

Fullish ball, lands on off and seams into middle and leg, flicked to short mid-wicket.
154 to win for Chennai then. We are all set for the chase to start. Punjab's players are in a meeting near the ropes, with their skipper, KL Rahul, lending the final words of wisdom. Chennai's openers are Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis. For Punjab, James Neesham will start off with the ball. Here we go then...
