That's it from us then. Thanks for joining in. Tomorrow there's another double header as Lions will play Otago first and then Scorchers will play against Royals. Do join us for that. Until then, good bye and take care.
Michael Hussey is the Man of the Match for his knock of 57 runs. Says he still enjoy the contest in middle.
Brisbane gets knocked out as they lose their third game of the tournament. It was another poor effort from the Australian T20 champions. Only Christian and Cutting were able to get the wickets.
Chennai become the first team to qualify to the semi-finals as they win their third game in a row. Brisbane never really got to a good total with the bat as Chennai restricted Brisbane to 137/7. The home side came out all guns blazing and chased down the total in style. Vijay and Hussey got off a great start as Mr. Cricket continued to play his natural game. Dhoni came and finished off the chase with a maximum as that sums up their win.
