Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s all from us tonight. Thanks for joining

Shane Watson is the man of the match: I was due runs, that’s for sure. I can’t thank Stephen Fleming and MS Dhoni enough to have kept faith in me. In any other team, I may have been dropped sooner. Happy to repay that faith. I knew I was in good nick, just needed to get my head right, get my technique right, had a bit of luck by playing and missing in the beginning.

MS Dhoni: I think you can give individuals a few games. Watson has been a match winner for us so we need to back him and he has been batting well in the nets. If Watson gets going, you know what’s on the plate. It started last year and it’s good to see different individuals come good, the bowler’s have done surprisingly well, the batting needs to click together. The back is holding up, it’s not getting worse, with the World Cup coming up, can’t afford that, because that’s too important.

11.40pm Stay tuned for the presentation. Ankur will be here shortly to bring you that.

Harbhajan Singh: “It’s always nice to go out there in the middle, unfortunately I missed a few games due to sickness. My whole family was sick, in fact. Nice to be back, and really happy with the result as well. We would have liked to finish the game in the 19th over itself, but the boys were just testing our hearts. Somehow we have the tendency to take it to the last over. As long as we’re getting the result, we’re fine. It’s nice to see Shane Watson getting those runs under his belt. He’s a serious player, last year he won us the final single-handedly, and this innings will boost his confidence. We always play well in Chennai, we know our conditions, and thanks to this beautiful crowd who come here to Chennai Super Kings. When teams come here, they have to play much better cricket than us to beat us.”

Bhuvneshwar Kumar: “I think it was a par score, but there was a bit of dew on the wicket. And the way Watson was going, we couldn’t do much. Anyone can have an off-day (speaking about Rashid), but it was the first off-day he had. Next three games out of four are away games, we really need to win those games to qualify for the playoffs. Captaincy gives me a lot of experience, it’s helped me mature as a player.”

11.34pm A comfortable win for Super Kings, with a tiny bit of a wobble towards the end. That wobble showed how well Watson was hitting it while scoring 96 off 53 balls. CSK are back on top of the table now.

19.5 1 Sandeep Sharma to Jadhav full on off stump, and there’s a little bit of drama here but the winning run is eventually taken. Drives it powerfully towards mid-on, except it ends up hitting the non-striker’s right foot as he jumps up to evade the ball. The ball ricochets towards the cover fielder, who sprints in, picks up, and underarms a throw at the non-striker’s end and hits the stumps direct, but Jadhav was safely home by then 1 run

One run to get, two balls to go, and the batsmen have crossed so it’ll be Jadhav on strike. Bravo’s walked in ahead of Dhoni.

19.4 W Sandeep Sharma to Rayudu bouncer over off stump, and Rayudu’s fallen with the scores tied! Opens up and looks to pull, but it’s a hard one to drag from over his right shoulder, and he ends up miscuing it high, offers a simple catch to Vijay Shankar at mid-off. Vijay Shankar catching Rayudu’s just what this match needed, I suppose! OUT
AT Rayudu c Shankar b Sandeep Sharma 21 (49m 25b 1×4 0x6) SR: 84.00

Scores are level now.

19.3 1 Sandeep Sharma to Jadhav shuffles down the pitch, drives this full one outside off firmly to mid-off, who’s stationed deep enough to permit a straightforward single 1 run
19.2 6 Sandeep Sharma to Jadhav wow, that’s another brilliant stop at the boundary from Manish Pandey. Or is it? Jumped down the pitch and turned this ball into a full-toss on the legs. Flicked it and timed it very well, well enough to clear the boundary to the right of deep midwicket. But Pandey, running to his right and jumping past the rope, pulls it back with one hand. But replays show his foot landed before he could paddle the ball back, and that will be six SIX
19.1 1 Sandeep Sharma to Rayudu full, angling into leg stump, flicked to short fine leg. If he’d placed that better he might have got four 1 run

Well, well. Only seven off the last two overs, and no boundaries. CSK need nine now. Who’ll bowl the last over? Sandeep’s the only frontline bowler with any overs left, and here he is.

End of Over No.19 Chennai Super Kings 167/3 Last Over (4 runs)

18.6 . Ahmed to Jadhav slower bouncer angling in towards off stump. Jadhav gets into a tangle as he looks to make room and ramp it over the keeper. Can’t connect no run

Just like the Sunrisers innings, the batsmen have found it harder to find the boundary off the seamers when the ball’s become older. Except for Watson, that is.

18.5 1 Ahmed to Rayudu length ball, another slower cutter, on off stump. Makes room and punches to deep point 1 run
18.4 1 Ahmed to Jadhav back of a length, angling in towards Jadhav’s hip, cramping him for room. Plays an awkward pull-flick and misses, gets a leg bye off his thigh pad 1 leg bye

Satya: “Tactical error by SRH leaving out Nadeem instead Sandeep.”

18.3 1 Ahmed to Rayudu wide of the crease, bowls this shortish cutter outside off. Makes room and slaps to deep point 1 run
18.2 1 Ahmed to Jadhav angles into the pads now and he clips it to long leg 1 run
18.1 . Ahmed to Jadhav offcutter, back of a length, really digs it into the pitch outside off and gets it to rise steeply. Jadhav is half-forward, looking to steer it behind point, and he aborts his shot as the ball climbs at him no run

Only three off that over, and the wicket of Watson. Has Bhuvneshwar shifted a tiny bit of pressure back onto Super Kings? Here’s Khaleel, round the wicket.

End of Over No.18 Chennai Super Kings 163/3 Last Over (3 runs)

17.6 . Kumar to Rayudu looks to step out and make room and Bhuvneshwar cramps him again, angling a shortish offcutter towards leg stump. Flat-bats it back to the bowler no run
17.5 1 Kumar to Jadhav full, angling into leg stump. Saw Jadhav shaping to make room. Pushed to the left of cover 1 run
17.4 1 Kumar to Rayudu jumps out of his crease and Bhuvneshwar tucks him up with a slower short one at his hip. Looks to flick, only manages a bit of thigh pad into the leg side 1 leg bye
17.3 1 Kumar to Jadhav back of a length outside off, chopped away to the left of deep point 1 run
17.2 . Kumar to Jadhav back of a length close to off stump, shuffles across to clip to midwicket no run

Here’s Jadhav.

17.1 W Kumar to Watson bouncer, rises over Watson’s right shoulder. Looks to hook, and doesn’t catch it cleanly. There’s an appeal for caught-behind from Bhuvneshwar, and it’s finally given. Tiny bit of glove on it, and Watson falls four short of what would have been a repeat of his hundred in last year’s final. Fantastic knock – he took his time early on, but once he was in, there was no stopping him. Great catch from Bairstow, by the way, diving to his left and completing it with a tumble OUT
SR Watson c †Bairstow b Kumar 96 (91m 53b 9×4 6×6) SR: 181.13

Update: Rayudu has joined Watson in that 40-balls-no-dismissals-against-Rashid club. Basically, the two most invincible batsmen against Rashid are in the middle together.

Abhishek: “I sent a message at start of this innings about why MSD is such a great captain. So happy to be proven correct. It’s because he backs he players in their bad times. Everyone was baying for his blood and Shane Watson delivers the goods. No team like CSK. No captain like MS.”

End of Over No.17 Chennai Super Kings 160/2 Last Over (10 runs)

16.6 2 Ahmed to Rayudu slower length ball outside off, Rayudu slices it in the air, with an open face, to the left of deep point 2 runs
16.5 . Ahmed to Rayudu full on off stump, driven to extra-cover no run
16.4 . Ahmed to Rayudu slower ball, fairly full, on off stump. No real front-foot stride as Rayudu looks to compensate with his wrists and drive through cover. Ends up sending a leading edge towards backward point no run
16.3 1 Ahmed to Watson low full-toss on off stump, punched down to long-on 1 run
16.2 6 Ahmed to Watson short, sits up on an off-stump line, and Watson opens up and pulls it with great power, generated with the swivel through his hips, to send this flying high over the midwicket boundary SIX
16.1 1 Ahmed to Rayudu shortish, close to off stump, gets on the back foot to ease it to deep point 1 run

Here’s Khaleel, round the wicket to Rayudu.

Watson’s looking absolutely unstoppable now, and hitting every part of the ground. I guess it’s why CSK don’t mind his slow starts. They should stroll this now, just over a run a ball required.

End of Over No.16 Chennai Super Kings 150/2 Last Over (15 runs)

15.6 4 Rashid Khan to Watson shot. Super shot. Wrong’un, turning towards leg stump, and he’s a big man but he’s so quick on his feet here. Opens up at the hips, drops down onto his back knee, and sweep-pulls, with a roll of his wrists on top of the bounce, to send it running away to the left of short fine leg FOUR
15.5 1 Rashid Khan to Rayudu full on leg stump, clipped gently into the short fine leg region 1 run
15.4 1 Rashid Khan to Watson flat, back of a length, slides on with the angle towards middle and leg, goes deep in his crease again to flat-bat to long-on 1 run
15.3 6 Rashid Khan to Watson bam. Tossed up on leg stump, and he clears his front leg and clears long-on by a big distance SIX
15.2 2 Rashid Khan to Watson short on off stump, and Watson rocks right back in his crease – his back foot is almost on the base of the stumps – and he pulls it in the air, into the gap between deep midwicket and deep backward square leg. Excellent fielding from Pandey running to his right from deep midwicket, pulls it back even as he has both feet in the air over the rope 2 runs
15.1 1 Rashid Khan to Rayudu back of a length googly, goes back and across and works it through square leg 1 run

CSK’s win probability is now 69%.

Aditya Mandalem: “I’m very surprised to see that nobody is noticing the similarity between this match and the IPL 2018 final. 1) Bhuvneshwar bowled a first-over maiden to Watson in both the games. 2) It’s 16/1 by the end of 4 overs in both the games. 3) Watson made an extremely slow start in both games, and blazed away. 4) Sandeep Sharma started giving away the runs in both the games. 5) By the end of four overs, CSK lost du Plessis.”

End of Over No.15 Chennai Super Kings 135/2 Last Over (10 runs)

14.6 . Kumar to Watson back of a length outside off, there’s that wristy late chop again, but this time straight to backward point no run
