Pune Warriors India vs Chennai Super Kings, 42nd T20 Match IPL 2013

Commentary

Chennai won by 37 runs | Pune Warriors India Vs Chennai Super Kings Live Score, 42nd Match

That's all we have for you tonight. A double header coming up tomorrow. Do join us for that. Cheers and goodbye for now.
Dhoni: 'I think the platform was there. We slowed down in the middle. The problem on these wickets is that you do not know how many would be enough. If you're not sure about the wicket, 160 is a good benchmark. I think Badri and Raina were batting really well. We were looking at 150+. I connected a few big hits and we got close to 160. Mohit has played a lot of Delhi cricket. I personally think that's what makes you smart. He backs himself to execute his plans. He's got important wickets for us. We have no problems in making him bowl four overs straight. I don't think we'll rest anyone. We need to continue with the momentum. Unless injuries happen, we'll play our best eleven. The weather has been really good too. It's manageable. I don't want to rest anyone as of now.'
MS Dhoni is the Man of the Match.
Finch: 'They had two in batters in the end. It's difficult to stop MS and Suresh was batting brilliantly. We lost too many wickets in the first 6. The run outs always hurt. Knocking some teams out will be the motivation from here. I thought our fielding was great. Those last five overs, we just gave away too many runs.'
That's Chennai's 4th away victory in as many matches this season. . It's also their 6th consecutive win. Pune, on the other hand, have lost five games on the trot. This win was set up by Raina and Dhoni's blitz. The bowlers were on target from the start and never really let Pune get into any sort of rhythm. The innings meandered aimlessly before reaching what was a foregone conclusion.
