  Commentary

  • That's all from us for tonight. We will be back tomorrow with KKR v DD. See you, then!

  • Chris Gayle (MoM): I got a text this morning saying I am playing. But most importantly we won. That's Chris Gayle for you -- hitting just fours and sixes. Once you've got momentum, you can keep the bowler under pressure. I feel like 25, the Universe Boss is back.

  • R Ashwin: Quite a day of cricket. Overall our bowling went well. It was crucial to get Rayudu out at that point. One of the major things we have discussed is having trust in one another as a bowling group. We are not a team that is going to go back saying we should have done this or that.

  • Player of the match - Chris Gayle

  • MS Dhoni: Not much, I think they bowled pretty well. Mujeeb was the difference. There was not much dew but overall, I think Chris's innings and Mujeeb is bowling made the difference. We will be a safe fielding side, not an extraordinary fielding side. It's a start of the tournament. We have won the first two games. We have confidence in Jadeja and it's the time we can give him an opportunity. I will definitely back him to come good in the coming games. God has given me the power. I don't need to use my back much. We have three-four days until the next game. Hopefully, it will get better.

  • Phew! MS Dhoni almost pulled off a heist but Mohit Sharma held his nerve in the last over to give his side a four-run victory. Also, this is Chennai's first loss in the three games so far.

End of the Innings

Kings XI Punjab won by 4 runs
Target: 198

  Full commentary

  • KL Rahul (37 off 22) and Chris Gayle (63 off 33) started aggressively. Once Rahul got out, Mayank Agarwal (30 off 19) continued in the same manner but Tahir struck back with two wickets in two balls and Punjab suddenly found it difficult to score. Karun Nair (29 off 17) hit some good shots towards the end to take the side to 197 for 7. But will it be enough? We will back with the chase in ten minutes. Stay tuned to find out.

  • MS Dhoni: We are bowling first. The pitch looks good. We have a forced change. Suresh Raina is not fit. We have got Murali Vijay. We are a team of over-aged people so we have to keep ourselves fit.

  • Chennai Super Kings Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  Full commentary

  • That's all from us for tonight. We will be back tomorrow with KKR v DD. See you, then!

  • Chris Gayle (MoM): I got a text this morning saying I am playing. But most importantly we won. That's Chris Gayle for you -- hitting just fours and sixes. Once you've got momentum, you can keep the bowler under pressure. I feel like 25, the Universe Boss is back.

  • R Ashwin: Quite a day of cricket. Overall our bowling went well. It was crucial to get Rayudu out at that point. One of the major things we have discussed is having trust in one another as a bowling group. We are not a team that is going to go back saying we should have done this or that.

  • Player of the match - Chris Gayle

  • MS Dhoni: Not much, I think they bowled pretty well. Mujeeb was the difference. There was not much dew but overall, I think Chris's innings and Mujeeb is bowling made the difference. We will be a safe fielding side, not an extraordinary fielding side. It's a start of the tournament. We have won the first two games. We have confidence in Jadeja and it's the time we can give him an opportunity. I will definitely back him to come good in the coming games. God has given me the power. I don't need to use my back much. We have three-four days until the next game. Hopefully, it will get better.

  • Phew! MS Dhoni almost pulled off a heist but Mohit Sharma held his nerve in the last over to give his side a four-run victory. Also, this is Chennai's first loss in the three games so far.
