19.4 - C Anderson to M Dhoni

SIX! Dhoni finishes it off in style! The best finisher, you bet he is. What a shot. What an innings. Vintage Dhoni is what he witnessed here. This is full and outside off, Dhoni shuffles across even before the ball is bowled, gets underneath it and smashes it into the mid-wicket stands. No reaction from him after that maximum, he is cool and calm as he receives a big hug from Bravo who comes rushing towards him as CHENNAI WIN BY 5 RUNS!

19.3 - C Anderson to D Bravo

A single! This is short and outside off, Bravo cuts it to deep point for a run. 5 from 3 and Dhoni is on strike. Excitement at the highest level.

19.2 - C Anderson to D Bravo

SiX! 10 from the two balls. It is not Dhoni, it is Bravo doing the job. 6 more needed from 4 balls. This is short and outside off once again. Bravo rocks back and hits it over covers, the place where he loves to go for a biggie.

19.1 - C Anderson to D Bravo

FOUR! Ideal start! Anywhere will do. 12 needed from 5 balls. Chennai are now favourites I feel. Short and outside off, Bravo goes for the pull but gets a top edge which evades the diving keeper and into the fence. Pressure, pressure on the bowler now.

18.6 - M Siraj to M Dhoni

Good delivery to end the over. Yorker on off stump, Dhoni digs it out back down the track and hits the stumps at the other end. It ricochets off them and rolls towards long on. Two runs taken.

18.6 - M Siraj to M Dhoni

Wide! Banged in short but it's too short, the umpire raises his arms sideways. MS still has the opportunity to finish this over well. Or will he want to take a single and keep strike for the final over? Knowing him, he could do either.
