   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: D Bravo Chepauk, Chennai (28 September 2011)

First 10 overs were like a boxing bout with Cobras’ batsmen and CSK bowlers going after each others. One scored runs and other picked wickets as Cobras reached 73/3 after 10 overs with 47% COW. Shah and Duminy batted well to put Cobras in a commanding position at 124/3 after 16 with 51% COW but CSK allowed just 21 runs in last 4 overs to restrict them to 145/7 with 43% COW. After a rapid start CSK lost both the openers and Badri’s wretched form continued as CSK reached 53/3 after 8 with 43% COW. But Raina gave innings some support before MSD and Bravo got CSK close before Bravo took on Steyn in an unbelievable display of attacking batting to win the match for CSK.
