MS Dhoni's unbeaten 79 went in vain as Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) edged Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by four runs in a thrilling Indian Premier League (IPL) clash in Mohali on Sunday. In a pulsating encounter, Dhoni was ably supported by Ambati Rayudu (49) in the middle overs. Dhoni stole the show with his batting prowess as he hit six fours and five sixes in his 44-ball 79. Andrew Tye took two wickets for Punjab but was expensive as he conceded 47 runs while Punjab skipper R Ashwin took a wicket giving away 32 runs in his four overs. (SCORECARD)

Earlier, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) posted 197/7 in their 20 overs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) clash against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali on Sunday. Riding on Chris Gayle's 63 off 33 balls, Punjab looked on course for a huge total. However, Imran Tahir's back-to-back wickets pegged the batting side. Both KL Rahul (37) and Gayle stitched a 96-run first wicket partnership. Mayank Agarwal (30) and Karun Nair (29) played crucial knocks in the middle to ensure Punjab reached a decent total. Shardul Thakur (2/33) took two wickets while Harbhajan Singh, Shane Watson and Dwayne Bravo shared a wicket each.

Done for today. We witnessed a couple of high scoring games and Rajasthan and Punjab emerged victorious. Kolkata and Delhi will be in action on Monday at 2000 IST. Looking forward to your company then. Cheers!

Chris Gayle is chosen for the Man of the Match award. His scintillating knock shell-shocked Chennai at the beginning as he went hammer and tongs from the word go. A knock studded with 7 fours and 4 sixes was a real treat for the cricket lovers. He is back. The Universe Boss is back.

!

One should avoid talking about the performance of the bowlers when close to 400 runs are hit in a T20 match. But, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Ravichandran Ashwin deserve a special mention as they were exceptional with the ball when the rest were taking a pasting. The fielding was also up to the mark and altogether a good team performance from the home team to earn a win. Earlier, their batsmen set up the game nicely for them by posting a big total but could have done even better with their finishing, something to improve on.

!

At one moment, it felt like Punjab will complete an easy win but then, the duo of Dhoni and Jadeja started to counterattack. Their 28-ball 50 stand took the chase deep and after that Dhoni took things under his control. He hammered 28 runs off 9 balls in the 30-run unbeaten partnership with Bravo and nearly stole victory from the jaws of defeat.

!

Chasing a stiff target, Chennai needed to start big. But that didn't happen. They lost both their openers cheaply and then the hero of the last match, Sam Billings also departed without contributing much. With their back to the wall, MS Dhoni joined Ambati Rayudu in the middle and together the pair tried to bring the chase back on track with a 57-run stand. Although, it didn't come at a rate which was needed.

!

Phew! Another cracking contest which went right down to the wire. It was vintage stuff from MS Dhoni as the Captain Cool nearly took his team over the line. What entertainment! The crowd here got its money's worth. Great scenes out there. The players are exchanging pleasantries. Punjab will be feeling really lucky that they had just enough on the board. After braving in their last two games, Chennai have fallen short of the target today. Also, yet another team has successfully defended the total which is against the norm this season.

Mohit Sharma to MS Dhoni

SIX! Biggie to finish but it is not enough! Mohit does bowl a legal ball and lands it full on middle. It is right in the zone for Dhoni who deposits it over the sightscreen for a maximum. PUNJAB WIN BY 4 RUNS!

Mohit Sharma to MS Dhoni

No, he can't! Mohit has more or less sealed it, unless he bowls an extra. Another full ball outside off, Dhoni squeezes it through point. There is a fielder in the deep and it goes towards him as he makes a tumbling stop. Dhoni does not run.

Mohit Sharma to MS Dhoni

Dot! This is very full outside off, Dhoni can't squeeze it out and the umpire feels it is inside the tramline. 11 from two. He did hit two sixes off the last two balls to win a game against Punjab a few years back. But then the bowler was Axar Patel. Can MS do it against Mohit Sharma, his ex-teammate?

Mohit Sharma to MS Dhoni

FOUR! This will also do! Top shot from the Captain Marvellous. Very full and wide outside off, not a bad delivery. Dhoni opens the face off the bat and guides it through backward point and the ball races away.
