Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s all from Saurabh and me but we have much more for you in our Match Day show with Brad Hodge and Ajit Agarkar.

The last time Harbhajan Singh got a Man of the Match award was in 2015, Saurabh pings.

Harbhajan: I have learnt quite a lot sitting next to you, Sunny bhai and all the legends who were in the commentary team. This is a special award from me. It goes to my wife and family. You cannot ask for a better start. Since they have a lot of left-handers, Fleming came and told me I will be playing. It was nice to get a wicket up front and once you have it, your confidence level grows up. Imran bowled really well and it’s always nice to get wickets of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. How often an offspinner gets their wickets!

Harbhajan Singh is the Man of the Match.

MS Dhoni: We were not really sure about the wicket, we played our practice game here but it wasn’t turning that much. I never expected the wicket to play how it played. I think something close to 140 you are looking at. I think the wicket needs to get much better. Well, we have communicated to the players in what scenarios they will be needed. He [Harbhajan] has the kind of experience needed to bowl on this wicket. I don’t think he would have minded bowling first or second here.

Time for post-match presentation.

Eric: “I know tahir ‘s figures were better but i think harbhajan should get man of the match considering he got three international top order batsmen out.”

RamC: “Last season first match gave lot of goosebump moments.. still it is fresh in memory.. this match didn’t give any sort of things.. simply boring match..”

Ambati Rayudu: Definitely a tough wicket but had there been another 30-40 runs, it would have been very difficult. It was more like playing a four-day game. It was tough, so we needed to take out time.

Virat Kohli: No team wants to start like this but the good thing is a game like this is out of the way. I am pretty happy with the attitude the guys showed in the field. I know the batting effort wasn’t ideal but attitude on the field was great and when our time comes, we will be ready to strike. The wicket looked much better than it played. We though 140-150 would be an ideal score. A scrappy sort of start but either team would have struggled batting first. [On Saini] He is touching 150 clicks which is very promising. He is going to be a lethal weapon. That’s the way we are looking at him.

11.03 A comfortable seven-wicket win for Chennai at their home. A lot more was expected but this proved to be an anti-climax. RCB were spun out for 70 – the sixth-lowest total in the IPL and the result was sealed there only. Watson departed for a ten-ball duck in the chase but there were simply not enough runs on the board. Rayudu and Raina eased the nerves and dashed any hopes of miracle.
