19.1 - Comment! Chennai Super Kings won by 18 runs.
19.1 - Comment! Eoin Morgan: Tremendous fight from our middle and lower order which is all you can ask for when you lose wickets upfront like that. The first five overs of our batting did not go our way. We did not play as well as would have liked. If we had built a partnership and take advantage of those early overs going into those middle overs, we would have been in a really strong position. It is (pulse) quite high at the moment. What a hell of a game of cricket. Certainly from the position we were in after our powerplay, we probably did not think we would get as close as we did. But Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik really did put a partnership together, once you do that taking advantage of the conditions here, it is very difficult to stop. A partnership going in that manner and then following that Pat Cummins the way he played really gave us every chance towards the end.
19.1 - Comment! Dhoni: You do not want to take too many early wickets. Big hitters coming in, 200 runs, there is only one way they will play. Not much you can do. The only option was Jadeja. It was turning, was a bit dry. The batting has been really good. Rutu is somebody who has shown his class in the last IPL. Quite easy in a game like this. From the 16th over onward the contest was between the fast bowler and the batsman. You can not do too much. Can not put different field. It is about you vs me. The side that has one is a side that has executed slightly better. But if they would have had more wickets, could have been different. Have seen enough in cricket, always like to be humble. There is no good reason if you have scored, the opposition can not score. My lines to the players was that we have got good runs on the board but let's be humble.
19.1 - Comment! Man of the match - Faf du Plessis (Chennai Super Kings):- Runs:95 - Balls:60 - 4s:9 - 6s:4 - SR:158.33.
19.1 - Comment! Faf du Plessis: We thought the seamers from the other side we can catch up. He is a fantastic young talent (Gaikwad). Those first couple of balls you can feel on edge as a batter. Beautiful to see him trust the timing and the technique. For a small guy he hits the ball a long way. been very lucky playing under MS for a long time. He knows what he is doing, pleasure to play under him. Was dew tonight and then it was a proper batter's game. That is when he is at his dangerous when he is got nothing to lose (Russell). This was the most fluent I have felt so far. Felt the previous game things started to get better. Tonight was another step. It is about the rhythm of the flow of the hands. Few games before this and even tonight spinners were the best bowlers. Even Jadeja bowled well for us. The ball just grips a bit.
19.1 - Comment! That is it for this match. Hope you all had enjoyed our live coverage. Join us tomorrow for more cricketing action.
