19.1 - B Kumar to F D Plessis

SIX! Faf du Plessis has finished the game in one blow! Kumar relies on his slower knuckle delivery first up, drops it on a full length around off but Faf picks it up and lofts it nonchalantly over the bowler's head for a maximum. The South African raises his hands in triumph as his teammates come running from the dugout. Emotions pouring out in the middle as the players in yellow are jumping and hugging each other. What a win! What a game! Chennai win by 2 wickets and are in the final!

18.6 - S Kaul to S Thakur

FOUR! Shardul Thakur, the Mumbai lad, is doing it! Kaul delivers it full and on middle, Shardul smashes it straight down the ground and the long on fielder has no chance of cutting it off. He is playing a gem. Remember, he was taken for 20 runs in his last over while bowling and this is the best possible way to pay back.

18.5 - S Kaul to S Thakur

Very full and around off, Thakur drills it down to long off and rushes back for the second run. The throw comes to the bowler who fails to collect it as du Plessis whizzes past the crease. Great running.

Goes back and punches it through covers for one.

18.4 - S Kaul to F D Plessis

Wide! The attempted slower delivery has gone wrong, it's too wide outside off. Du Plessis leaves it.

Fullish and outside off, chipped over the bowler's head for a single. 9 from 3 by Shardul, great hand in the context of this chase.
