   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match : MS Dhoni MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai (12 May 2011)

Hussey flopped for once and even Raina fell early as CSK look in trouble at 42/2 after 6 with 52% COW. But Badri and Vijay set up a platform before Vijay got out. MSD walked in and simply took the game away from DD with a blistering fifty in company of Badri who also notched up a fifty as CSK ended with 176/4 with 63% COW. Despite an early wicket DD looked up for the chase as they were 54/1 after 7 with 38% COW. But two quick wickets set them back and despite Irfan and Rao’s cameos they were never back in the hunt as they ended with 158/6 to lose by 18 runs.

  1st Innings (CSK) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: CSK 39/1 CSK 54% Dangerman Hussey was undone by Pathan
      but a few good overs from Vijay kept Chennai on top.Chennai’s chances increased by 1% during this period.
arrow 10 overs: CSK 67/2 CSK 53% After Raina fell, Vijay and Badrinath
      consolidated by which we mean they were looking for singles not boundaries.Chennai’s chances decreased by 1% during this period.
arrow 15 overs: CSK 105/3 CSK 54% Vijay might be disappointed at losing
      his wicket to Agarkar (not so much the losing his wicket part though) but Dhoni and Badrinath then got Chennai to a good position .Chennai’s chances increased by 1% during this period.
arrow 20 overs: CSK 176/4 CSK 63% If the last 5 overs was an Action movie
      then Badrinath would be the one sniping out bad guys but Dhoni would be the one obliterating the Enemy compound with miniguns in both hands .Chennai’s chances increased by 9% during this period.
  2nd Innings (DD: Target 177) - 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: DD 46/1 DD 38% Last year, Naman Ojha responded to a
      huge Chennai total with an audacious assault, this year he was showing the signs of doing the same for Delhi before the fact struck that not every ball could smashed for six.Delhi’s chances increased by 1% during this period.
arrow 10 overs: DD 65/3 DD 31% A back to form performance from Delhi,
      and this time it was Colin Ingram and David Warner who sapped the momentum away.Delhi’s chances decreased by 7% during this period.
arrow 15 overs: DD 107/3 DD 29% Rao and Pathan tried to keep Delhi’s
      hopes alive but with the required rate mounting Delhi were up against it.Delhi’s chances decreased by 2% during this period.
arrow 20 overs: DD 158/6 DD 0% Pathan gave Delhi a flicker of a hope
      but alas Delhi did not really deserve to win after a shoddy allround display. Chennai won by 18 runs.
