Well, that's all we have for you from here today. Do join us for the double header tomorrow (infact today) in the Indian T20 League. Mumbai take on Mohali followed by Delhi hosting Jaipur. It's going to be an exciting day. Until then, it's goodbye and take care!
Ravindra Jadeja is adjudged the Man of the Match for his good all-round performance. He batted well at the death and then came back to break the back of the chase taking 4/12. He starts off saying that sometimes he goes on his feel looking at the wicket. Admits that when he watches the ball spin, he bowls differently. Adds that he did not plan to hit the first ball he faced for a six, but the situation demanded that off him.
Kolkata started poorly losing their captain early who came out with a different partner again, this time Robin Uthappa. They kept losing wickets though at regular intervals. Robin was the lone batsman who showed glimpses of form on this slower deck. The spinners from Chennai broke the back of the chase with Jadeja shinning and taking a four-fer! Chennai will be delighted with their work while Kolkata will rue the batting failure again.
Chennai end an impressive game for them. They have won five matches in a row now! McCullum got them to a good total scoring a fifty along with handy cameos from Raina and Dhoni. Narine and Shakib were the best bowlers for Kolkata.
Mohit Sharma to Sunil Narine
Good length outside off, Narine guides it down to third man for a single. CHENNAI WIN BY 34 RUNS!
Sunil Narine is the last man in to face the last ball.
Mohit Sharma to Yusuf Pathan
OUT! Mohit strikes again! Fuller on off and middle, Pathan fails to work it to the on side. The players appeal for an LBW and the umpire rules him out. Mohit is on a hat-trick!
Vinay Kumar is the new man in.
Mohit Sharma to Piyush Chawla
OUT! Mohit takes one more! Fuller outside off, Chawla mistimes his loft straight to du Plessis who peddles back to take a simple catch. He is level with Jadeja, for taking the most wickets this year in the Indian T20 league.
Short outside off, Pathan has a swing at it. The ball takes the top edge and falls in the vacant square leg region. They take a single.
Good length outside off, Chawla chops it back onto the pitch. Mohit scores a direct hit collecting the ball but Pathan was well home completing a run.
Yorker on off, Pathan swings it down the ground for a single. They wanted the second but Pathan slipped as he completed the first one.
Ben Hilfenhaus to Yusuf Pathan
Full on middle, Pathan swings it down to wide long on for a single. Kolkata need 39 runs in 6 balls.
SIX! Pathan keeps hitting! Fuller outside off, Pathan swings it hard over the long on fence for a maximum.
Full and wide outside off, Pathan lets it go thinking it will be called a wide but it isn't.
Bangs it short on off, Pathan swings at it and misses.
SIX! Two in two! Full toss on middle, Pathan mistimes his loft towards long on. The ball has enough on it to fly over the ropes. That was hit with some power as the hand came off the bat.
SIX! Oh hello! Full on middle, Pathan swings it hard over the mid-wicket fence for a maximum. Can he do something extraordinary from here?
Ben Hilfenhaus back on to bowl his final over.
Piyush Chawla walks out to bat.
