A forgetful day for Chennai with both bat and ball. First, they just could not get enough runs on the board and then, they were unable to defend it too. With today's result, Chennai finish second in the group behind Trinidad. Chennai will now travel to Jaipur to take on Rajasthan Royals for the first semi-final on Friday, while Trinidad take on Mumbai Indians here at Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday. Stay with us for the presentation.
Well an easy win for Trinidad there and with that, we now have all our semi-finalists. Needing 119 to win in 17.4 overs to top the group, Trinidad were simply too good for Chennai. The opening pair of Lewis and Simmons blasted the bowling to all parts of the ground denting the confidence of Chennai bowlers.
