  • Right then. That’s it from the coverage of this game. The Indian T20 League action continues on 13th April, where Mumbai will take on Punjab. The first ball will be bowled at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT). But as you all know, you can join us early for the build-up. Till then take care and goodbye!
  • Shivam Dube is the Player of the Match. He says he definitely feels happy to contribute for the first win of his team. Adds, that he has been more focused on his basics. Says Mahi bhai helped him a lot to improve his game. Says, he aimed to time the ball really well and tries to maintain the balance. Further says, he will bat wherever the team needs him to bat.
  • Ravindra Jadeja the skipper of Chennai says that this is the first victory as a captain and he dedicates this victory to his wife since the first victory is always special and he feels good to win after losing the first four Mentions that all the staff and management never put pressure on him and he says that MS Dhoni is always on the field if he needs help. Further adds that there is plenty of experience in their dressing room, and they keep things calm and they don't panic.
  • Stay tuned for the presentation...
  • Robin Uthappa is in for a chat. Says everyone was just amazed as Rayudu was after the catch. After the match he said that he was happy to contribute something in this victory. Mentions, he gave some time to Dube to settle down, but once he had his eye in both decided to take on from each end and that did wonders for them. Adds, Maheesh Theekshana is coming into his own and we see him grow in confidence as the game time increases. Mentions the side will be really relieved with the two points. Says the team really stuck together during the game and the result is the best part off it.
  • Faf du Plessis, the skipper of Bangalore, is in for a chat. He says that while bowling they were good till the 7th over, but post that Dube and Uthappa took the spinners on, and put together around 160 runs, and that partnership speaks for itself. Mentions that they had to be aggressive which they weren't, and Chennai used their spinners really well as well. Informs that they really miss the services of Harshal tonight, they lacked bowling variety towards the end. Says that they did not get a good start, but he is really impressed with the younger guys, it shows the batting depth they have. 
  • Ravindra Jadeja would be a happier man after this victory without a doubt! This is the Chennai we all were familiar with. What a dominating performance by the men in yellow. Maheesh Theekshana stood out amongst the bowlers for Chennai. He grabbed four wickets and most of them came when the game was being taken away from them. It was an evening filled with mixed emotions for Mukesh Choudhary. A moment to savour as he took the wicket of Virat Kohli, but a night to forget with a couple of dropped catches in the field. Things could've gotten worse for Chennai but the experience of Dwayne Bravo came to the rescue, once he sent back Dinesh Karthik in the 18th over. All smiles for the people in yellow. They will try to capitalize on the winning momentum by their side.
  • It is never easy to chase down a huge target. Bangalore started out with a strategy of keeping the wickets in hand which would come in handy deep into the innings. The opening pair failed to find boundaries in the opening overs but did rack up runs at a good rate by running the hard yards. Although the plan took a U-turn, once Faf du Plessis perished. There was a mini collapse for Bangalore as they were four wickets down within 7 overs. The middle-order put up a solid counterpunch, which got hopes high for Bangalore but it wasn't enough. Suyash Prabhudessai and Shahbaz Ahmed did trouble the yellow army but Maheesh Theekshana got the better of the pair. In the end, it was a huge ask for Dinesh Karthik, he put a good cameo but could not provide his side with another match-winning knock.  
  • What an enthralling match. The South Indian derby always delivers an entertaining contest. Nevertheless, Chennai continue their domination over Bangalore in the Indian T20 League. They also get their first win of the season.
