Right! We have the first entry in the playoffs, courtesy of the result of this game. Yes, Mumbai are through. Kolkata's fate will depend on other results now and that too when they win their last game against Rajasthan. That's it from this game. The action though will continue on Friday, 30th October 2020, when two teams eager to keep their hopes alive meet each other. Yes, Rajasthan take on Punjab in game No. 50 of the Indian T20 League 2020. The game will begin at 1800 local (1400 GMT). Join for all the action then. For now, it is goodbye from our side.
Ruturaj Gaikwad, 72 runs from 53 balls, is the MAN OF THE MATCH. Back-to-back MoMs for him. States that he is very happy that both the awards have come in winning situations for the team. He backed himself confidently again in this match. Adds that his skipper's words helped him beat COVID. On whether he works hard in the gym, Gaikwad smiles and says yes and cheekily adds that he has six-pack abs as well.
MS Dhoni, the VICTORIOUS CHENNAI SKIPPER, is all smiles. Starts off by saying that it is one game where it all went in their favour. Praises his boys for finishing it well. Adds that Jadeja has been really well this season, looking to finish the games in the side's favour. Adds that Jadeja plays well through the point region. On whether Chennai is looking at the future, Dhoni says yes. They are giving time to the youngsters and want to see how they play. States that Gaikwad's case early on was unfortunate because he got COVID and had to isolate himself and then later come to the training after getting clear. Says that sometimes it becomes difficult for the management to judge where a player stands. On Gaikwad further, Dhoni states that Ruturaj had gotten out to the first ball he faced in his debut. Would be wrong to judge him solely on that and hence they observed him closely in the nets and decided to give him more opportunities. Dhoni further says that the expectation from the side is that in the 3-3.5 hours they play, expects the players to give it their all. States that after that, they can do anything they want but focus on those 3-3.5 hours must be given completely to the game.
Please stay tuned for the presentation ceremony as we get to hear the winning captain and also know who the Man of the Match is!
Ravindra Jadeja is caught for a quick chat. Says that he was hitting the ball well in the nets, so all he was thinking about was doing the same in the game. Says that he along with Curran wanted to just go after the bowlers in the last 2 overs. Tells that he was trying to keep his shape and back his strength. Says that if he got anything in his arc, he knew he can hit it for a six. Adds that when you play good cricket and win games for the team, it is always a happy feeling.
Eoin Morgan, the Kolkata skipper, says that they played really well in this game. Feels that dew came after 8th over and it made things difficult for them. Says that Chennai played really well on the day. Says that with one game left, they will look to win the game. Feels that they thought that the total was a pretty good one but adds that the conditions changed a touch. Praises Rana for his superb knock. Talks highly of the performance of the spinners and adds that one is a world-class bowler while the other one is going to play for India. Feels that faulting any bowlers would be wrong. Says that Nagarkoti is a young bowler and he will take it on the chin and learn from it. Ends by saying that he is looking forward to the game against Rajasthan.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Chennai opted to bowl first. They were largely doing well but Rana's 87 swung the momentum in Kolkata's favour. After his dismissal, Chennai were back in the game again but DK's cameo towards the end once again pulled things back in Kolkata's favour. Chasing 173, Chennai got off to a slow start but thanks to Gaikwad, Rayudu and Jadeja, they coasted home safely in the end.
Kolkata's bowlers were off-colour today. Don't know what Morgan thought when he offered Rana the ball, he went for 16 in his only over and given how the match panned out, that could have been avoided. Chakravarthy and Cummins managed 2 apiece and were the lone bowlers who were economical along with managing a couple of wickets. Narine bowled well but could not net any wickets. Nagarkoti and Ferguson were taken for plenty.
Chasing 173 for a victory, Chennai got off to a sluggish start. They lost Watson in the 8th over and then their scoring rate upped considerably, courtesy Gaikwad and Rayudu. The latter though went for one too many and fell after making a good 38. Dhoni followed shortly but Gaikwad continued strongly. Eventually, after a good 72, he too fell, attempting a cheeky shot. It was getting a bit tight towards the end but Jadeja finished things off well in Chennai's favour, an unbeaten 31 from 11 balls for him.
What a fantastic way to finish, by Jadeja. First back-to-back wins for Chennai in this edition. They seem to have found their form but too late. Nonetheless, they would be pleased with the way they are closing their campaign. Chennai's win means Mumbai become the first team to qualify for the playoffs this season. Oooh... One arch-rival helping the other!

Kamlesh Nagarkoti To Sam Curran
DOT! Terrific from Kamlesh. Shortish and around middle, Curran looks to pull but the ball takes the inner half and goes back to the bowler.
Pat Cummins is done. Should be Kamlesh Nagarkoti to bowl the last over. Yes, it is him, 10 runs to defend. The youngster will have to deliver under extreme pressure for his side.

EDGY FOUR! But Jadeja and Chennai will take it. What an over, what an over for Chennai! 20 runs off it and now the game is right in Chennai's court. Full and wide outside off, Jadeja throws the kitchen sink at it. He gets a thick outside edge and that flies over short third man and into the third man fence. Just 10 needed in 6 balls. Super Over anyone?

Lockie Ferguson To Ravindra Jadeja
NO BALL! The attempted yorker goes wrong, Lockie ends up bowling it above the hip. Jadeja pulls it, rather unconvincingly, towards deep square leg. The batters take two. Free Hit coming up then!
