What a match! We are only two matches in to this IPL and we have already been treated to a final ball thriller! Morkel played a very responsible knock for his side and had he given his last drive that little more then he could have brought home the win. The experience of CSK shone through in the end but it was a brilliant match and we thank you for joining us for it.

Duminy Said About the Game: “It is a game of such small margins. I am proud of the boys, we didn’t create any partnerships so it was courageous us taking it to the end. Another one or two balls and we may have got over the line. The gameplan was to take wickets and we knew if we did that we would have won the game, credit goes to our spinners. We would have liked to get off to a win but there are a lot of positives to take from this game.”
