RAVINDRA JADEJA IS NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH for his all round display. That is all we have from this game. It was a low scoring affair but an exciting one nonetheless. Do join us for tomorrow's game between Bangalore and Kolkata at 2000 IST. Till then, it's cheers and goodbye.
Chennai were disciplined with their efforts in the field but surely had some help from the Jaipur batsmen.
What should have been an easy chase turned out to be an insurmountable challenge. Jaipur could not get over the line and they have no one but themselves to blame. The batsmen played some irresponsible shots at times when common sense was needed and threw away their wickets, eventually costing them the game. Ravindra Jadeja was the star for Chennai with 4 wickets on the night.
Ravichandran Ashwin to Dhawal Kulkarni
OUT! Dear oh dear! Tambe is run out! Kulkarni drives it down the ground and urges Tambe to come back for the second. He is very slow off the blocks and eventually is run out well short of his crease. CHENNAI WIN BY 7 RUNS.
SIX! Hang on here, Can Kulkarni somehow pull off a miracle? Flighted on middle and leg, Kulkarni once again goes for a slog sweep and cleans house over mid-wicket, game on now! 9 OFF 2 NEEDED.
Kulkarni has taken the risk and lofted it over the covers. Two runs added to the total.
