Chennai Super Kings are chasing 227 for victory in the IPL 2014 Qualifier 2 at the Wankhede Stadium. They were in decent position but have just lost the wicket of Brendon McCullum though as he was run-out off the last ball of the 12th over and then Ravindra Jadeja was caught at deep third-man by Mitchell Johnson.
Akshar Patel came on to bowl the 10th over and he did a decent job as he only gave away five runs. At the half-way mark, Chennai were 122 for three. Karanveer Singh then came on and off the second ball, Jadeja charged down the track and lofted it for a six down the ground. He then hit another four down the ground.
Earlier, Chennai Super Kings won the toss and predictably decided to field first. Chennai have retained the same team that cruised to a seven wicket win against Mumbai Indians in the eliminator. Kings XI Punjab on the other hand have brought in their strike bowler Sandeep Sharma, who replaces Rishi Dhawan. Virender Sehwag smashed a ton and took Punjab to a formidable 226 for six. Suresh Raina then smashed 87 off 25 balls to power a brilliant start.
