19.6 - L Malinga to S Thakur

OUT! Fuller on middle and leg, takes the pace off, Thakur misses it and it thuds on the pads! Plumb! Malinga repays the faith of Rohit and delivers on the last ball! What an anticlimax for Chennai! Rohit has taken his side to another IPL title! Hugs all around but contrasting emotions in Chennai's dug-out. Tough one for Chennai as they lose by a thin margin, falling short by a run in the end. A perfect cliffhanger final that kept fans on their edge of the seats!

19.5 - L Malinga to S Thakur

Full toss on middle and the yorker went wrong. Thakur plays it towards the mid-wicket region and scampers away for a couple of runs. We are down to the last ball of the FINAL. 2 required for CSK. Tension everywhere! Some of the fans can't watch and it's time to bite the nails.

19.4 - L Malinga to S Watson

OUT! Comes round the wicket angling away, Watson swats it away behind square, tries to scamper for two runs here, but the fielder throws back sharply on the stumps. De Kock makes no mistake this time, uproots the stumps and makes up for the mistake earlier. This is turning out to be a nail-biter!

19.3 - L Malinga to S Watson

Yorker length again and Malinga's trick of going around the wicket is working so far. WATSON takes a couple and 5 required now off 3 balls. It's getting hotter & hotter out there.

19.2 - L Malinga to R Jadeja

Low full toss on middle stump and Jadeja punches this back to the bowler, chance of a run out but Jadeja is quick and makes his ground in time. Malinga has been spot-on so far!

19.1 - L Malinga to S Watson

Played towards the long-on and Malinga is on a mission here. He needs to defend 9 off the last over. Can he repay for his poor bowling earlier?
