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!

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?

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!

Lockie Ferguson To Ravindra Jadeja
FOUR! Useful boundary. Very important boundary. 150 is up. Ferguson misses the yorker and ends up giving a high full toss, that too on the pads of Jadeja. He helps it through short fine leg and finds the fence.

Pat Cummins To Ruturaj Gaikwad OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! Cummins gets the massive wicket. Such a classy knock and it ends when the batsman is playing an unorthodox shot. Good length ball on middle, Gaikwad moves inside the crease and looks to paddle it over the keeper but misses. The castle behind gets a beating. End of another top knock from Gaikwad but he would be mighty disappointed not to take the team home. 33 runs needed in 16 balls.

Pat Cummins To Sam Curran
Direct hit and Curran would've been walking back. A full ball on middle, Sam premediates and goes for the scoop but fails to get it right. The ball hits the toe end and rolls towards the leg side. He goes for the single. Cummins quickly gets to the ball and throws at the non-striker's end but misses.
Sunil Narine has completed his 4 overs. Cummins to finish his. 3-0-27-1 for him so far.

Varun Chakravarthy To MS Dhoni OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Chakravarthy got Dhoni bowled when these two met earlier as well, and now too. 'Chakra-worthy' it reads on the big board in the stadium. Quicker and flatter on middle and leg, Dhoni rocks back and looks to play this on the leg side. He anticipated a fuller length, tossed up ball but did not anticipate the quicker one. Dhoni misses and the ball crashes into the woodwork.

Pat Cummins To Ambati Rayudu OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Rayudu goes for one too many and ends up perishing. Is that the breakthrough that Kolkata wanted? Looks so, if they can capitalize on this further. Outside off on a good length, Rayudu comes down the track and looks to whack that over mid off. However, he ends up getting it straight into the hands of the mid off fielder, Sunil Narine, instead. 55 runs needed in 38 balls still for the Yellow Brigade.

Full and around off, Ruturaj mistimes it off the inner half to long on for a single as he looked to slam that on the off side.
Bowling change. Pat Cummins returns now. 2-0-16-0 from him so far.
DRINKS! Another fine partnership stitched and Chennai are looking pretty strong at the moment. Gaikwad has looked as solid as he was in the previous game while Rayudu has shown intent from the start and is playing a superb hand. With 9 wickets in hand, these two can take the game deep and win it for the team. The asking rate is just over 9. Kolkata, on the other hand, need to strike quickly. Let's see who can deliver for them.

DRINKS! Chennai are 58/1 at the end of 9 overs and the required rate is 10.5. They find themselves in a familiar situation, in that, they do not accelerate and leave too much to be done at the end. Which is what has proved to be their undoing this season. The word from their dugout should be for these two to get a good move on, especially Gaikwad, who is set now. Kolkata meanwhile would be happy and it is a matter of capitalizing after the break to swing the momentum further in their favour. Let's see who has it their way after the break.

Varun Chakravarthy To Shane Watson OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Chakravarthy gets his man. Tosses the ball full and bowls it on middle, Watson looks to power it over long on but the ball takes the outer half and goes high in the air. Rinku Singh at long off settles under it and takes it easily. The good-looking stand is broken.

Beaten! That wasn't too far away from the stumps. It lands on middle and then breaks away to beat the outside edge. Watson was clueless as to which way it will go.

Time for some spin. Sunil Narine is on now.
These two have done well for Chennai so far. They have got the occasional boundaries to keep the asking rate under check. Their first aim would be to bat together till the Powerplay and then make their next move. Kolkata cannot afford a good opening stand.
