Well, that's all we have for you from this match. Do join us for the match between Kolkata and Hyderabad starting soon.
Chennai will be disappointed. They did bowl well to keep the batsmen tied down. The pitch was slow but they lost it, Ashwin did bowl well. When it mattered in the end, Dhoni turned to Hussey instead of bowling his regular bowlers and that turned out to be the spell which turned the match. They though can afford a loss thanks to their work before in the tournament. Bangalore are alive in this tournament and will be happy with the two points.
Well, that was a close chase and Bangalore have come triumphs thanks to a good stand between Kohli and Gayle who steadied them as they struggled to score quickly at first.
