That's all we have from this game. But don't go anywhere as the battle for the fourth spot is still on. Kolkata are taking on Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium and a win will hand them the ticket to the playoffs. Hyderabad will be closely watching this game too. Switch to the concerned tab and follow all the updates. Cheers!
KL Rahul is the obvious choice for the Man of the Match award. He starts by saying that he was holding himself back till the last game as his role was to bat out 20 overs. Adds that sometimes you have to alter your game and play according to the situation. Feels that his strike rate has dropped a bit but he succeeded in winning more games for his side this season.
Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin says that it wasn't easy for them but adds that they never got outplayed in any game this season, apart from Hyderabad. Further says that they lost the Powerplay battles this season. Mentions that they have not qualified but wants to build on the performance this season. States that the auction is where most battles are won. Thanks the coach for all the support and feels that they need to have a long term vision for the franchise.

Chennai skipper, MS Dhoni credits Gayle and Rahul for their knocks and praises Punjab's bowling as well. Admits that Chennai were not up to the mark in the Powerplay. Is happy that they managed to stretch the game to as long as possible. Mentions that they wanted to win the game but after the kind of start Punjab had, the 14.2 overs factor played in his mind. Lauds his bowlers for bowling the last 8-9 overs well.
Chasing a stiff target, Punjab got off to a rollicking start. KL Rahul batted like a train on fire and completed his fifty off just 19 balls. That set the tone for the chase and scared Chennai who were in danger of getting dropped to number two in the points table, had Punjab overhauled the target in 14.2 overs. Harbhajan Singh, who took a real hammering in his first spell of 2 overs, returned with a bang to pick three wickets and put brakes on the home team's charge. His spell meant that Chennai kept the top spot even though they lost the game by a handsome margin.
A convincing win for Punjab to end their season. They have avoided the wooden spoon and it has landed in the bag of Bangalore. This victory will please the home team as it has come against one of the top teams of the league. Earlier, powered by the century stand between du Plessis and Raina, Chennai posted 170 on the board. Faf missed out on his ton while the visiting team didn't get going in the death overs and fell around 15-20 runs short.

Ravindra Jadeja To Nicholas Pooran OUT!
OUT! Against the run of play, Jadeja has dismissed Pooran. He dishes out a flatter and shorter delivery outside off, Pooran camps back to play the square cut but it takes a thick outside edge and settles into the gloves of Dhoni. The keeper just tosses the ball up in celebration, Jadeja turns back to put in a formal appeal and then Pooran is seen walking back.
