Commentary

Chennai won by 10 wkts | Kings XI Punjab Vs Chennai Super Kings Live Score, 11th Match

So that's it from us for this game. Hope you have enjoyed our coverage, join us back for tomorrow's double-header at 16:00 local time. Till then, take care and good bye!
Michael Hussey: 'The outfield is really fast here and the wicket was very good, I really enjoyed batting with Vijay, he supported me very well. He was doing all the talking and calming me down and in the end we pulled off a wonderful win. Gilly's catch was very crucial, he could have made a huge difference to the total. Against Mumbai we didn't play well as a batting unit and it is very pleasing that we won this emphatically.'
Michael Hussey is the Man of the Match
MS Dhoni: 'The bowlers bowled really well. We all knew with the grass around, early wickets was key and they got them and was well backed up by Jadeja and Bravo. Hussey and Vijay were outstanding, they respected the bowling at the start and then launched the attack after getting themselves in. We didn't bat well against Mumbai but here we were really good. Yes, a tricky situation when Faf is back, Hussey is wonderful at the top and we'll see our options. I was happy with the way Vijay batted, he started slowly but made it count in the end. Overall a satisfying effort.'
Adam Gilchrist: 'Chennai completely outplayed us in all departments. We were decent with the bat at the start but suddenly lost our way after the loss of David Hussey. This is certainly not a 138 wicket. Chennai bowlers bowled really well and we ended 40 short of what was a par score on this surface. I am surprised that they don't play run-outs anymore in this tournament (laughs). But yea, we will have to do well next time around'
So a comprehensive win for Chennai who lost to Punjab in their previous three encounters, but today they have done it in grand fashion. This will help them immensely in net run rate. 139 was always an easy target on a wicket which had good bounce and carry. Both Murali Vijay and Michael Hussey batted sensibly. They didn't take any risks at the start and once they got their eye in, the Punjab bowlers just couldn't stop the run flow. Punjab had their chances, Hussey survived a close run-out call and then was dropped by Chawla. Later on, Gilchrist missed a stumping chance of Vijay as well. In the end it was a bad day at the office for the home side. This is the first 10-wicket win for Chennai in Indian T20 League. Stay tuned for the presentation which is coming up your way shortly.
Murali Vijay: 'It is a good feeling, always good to bat with Hussey at the top and I will take a lot of positives from this knock. We combine well together, we rotated the strike very well which allowed me to settle in and in the end a fantastic win for us.'
