Dwayne Smith is undoubtedly named the Man of the Match. He says that there's a small niggle with his knee but he is not worried about it. His physio is taking good care of it. He and McCullum plan to stay positive when they walk out to bat together. They try to get as many runs as possible early on. Admits that the way McCullum plays doesn't affect the way he does as he is a positive-minded guy. He is happy to have a few good bats and jokingly adds that he is a strong person too.
Another convincing win for Chennai! They are getting harder to beat by the day. The chase was nicely set up by Smith and McCullum who carried on their good run of form. Smith was just unstoppable, everything he touched was turning into runs, all off the middle. Chennai lost a few quick wickets in the last few overs but captain cool, Dhoni was there till the end to guide his team through.
Amit Mishra to MS Dhoni
FOUR! Dhoni completes the victory for Chennai! Receives a full toss on his body and Dhoni slaps it away to the deep mid-wicket boundary. CHENNAI WIN BY 5 WICKETS!
