Commentary

Chennai won by 4 wkts | Chennai Super Kings Vs Titans Live Score, Group B, T20 Match 3

That ends our coverage of the double headers today. Join us for more action tomorrow. Until then Cya bye bye....
Raina: 'We had a very good net session for the last three days. When I went in, we needed to be positive and I got a good partnership with Hussey. Bravo and Badri finished it well in the end. They had some good bowlers like Morne Morkel and we had to play well in the first six overs. I have been working on the short ball. I had a good tour of South Africa, which helped me a lot.'
Raina is the Man of the Match
Dhoni: 'Well, the way Raina and Hussey played was pleasing. The thing that pleased me the most was that they were not happy when they came back after getting out. The bowlers found it difficult to bowl with all the dew. AB de Villiers batted really well. I thought it was chasable and the way Hussey and Raina batted, taking the attack to the opposition, it was very good to see. We need to be improving as we go along in the tournament, we need to be prepared to bowl second as well. The bowlers need to do well in the coming games.'
Hussey: 'There was quite a bit of dew. It was very difficult for the bowlers and especially the spinners to grip the ball. We lost an early wicket. From then we just tried to be calm and be composed. Raina batted really well and it took the pressure off me as that allowed me to play my game. I enjoy playing with this side. We have got a great bunch of guys.'
Davids: 'I think it was a very good score. We did well to get there but couldn't defend it. We need to work on the bowling now. This should have been pulled off. We tried to hit the back of a length area, as it was a little hard to score off but the plan didn't work. The wet ball made things really worse for the bowlers.'
It has been a fantastic run chase by the Chennai team. They lost Vijay early, but after that it was the Hussey-Raina show as both of them went berserk and got the fastest team hundred for Chennai. However, they threw it away after being well set, but the start they had given made it easier for Bravo and Badrinath who batted sensibly and put on 58 runs for the fourth wicket. They lost a couple of wickets in the end but the match was in the bag before that. The Titans bowlers were very wayward in their bowling. They sprayed it everywhere and nobody looked like getting a wicket apart from Richards.
18.5 Rowan Richards to Albie Morkel 4
FOUR, the winning runs by Albie Morkel. It was full and just outside off, Morkel comes forward and drives it beautifully to the sweeper cover fence

no run, good length ball outside off, left alone by Albie Morkel
Albie Morkel, left handed bat, comes to the crease
18.3 Rowan Richards to Ravindra Jadeja W
out Bowled!! Chennai are losing wickets by going to finish it off in style. This was a fuller length delivery on off, Jadeja tries to go across the line and has his off stump knocked back. Poor shot by Jadeja when only 3 runs are required. Ravindra Jadeja b Rowan Richards 0(2)
3 wickets for Rowan Richards. Rowan Richards is on a roll.

no run, back of a length on off and middle, Jadeja goes on the backfoot and defends it
