It was debutant Scott Kuggelejin who defended 26 runs quite convincingly in the final over and managed to win the clash by 26 runs in the end. The Kiwi paceman had no trouble defending those runs and also dismissed Sarfaraz.
With bowling figures of 4-1-17-2, veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was the pick of the bowlers for CSK and was also awarded the "Man of the Match" award. "They said I bowled brilliantly at the death'", Chahar said. In the 12 overs which Super Kings' spinners bowled, they conceded 61 runs which changed the course of the match.
In reply, Harbhajan Singh got the better of Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal in the very first over to set the tone for Chennai. With it also being a double-wicket maiden over, it was the flawless start for Super Kings. CSK had just reached the 100-run mark in the 14 over when Dhoni came to the crease, and he helped the team to 60 runs in the next six overs.

The century partnership for the third wicket between Rahul and Sarfaraz was a productive one but they consumed a lot of balls and stymied the Kings XI chase as the CSK bowlers kept things tight.
Another potential worry for CSK is that openers Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson have not given the kind of starts they gave previous year, but Hussey said it was not a cause for concern. After MS Dhoni's classic no-look flick at the stumps failed to dislodge the stubborn bails making KL Rahul the luckiest batsman on the field, the CSK skipper, hailed as "Captain Cool" by the world of cricket, was seen fuming at bowler Deepak Chahar after back-to-back no balls.
Kings XI Punjab captain R Ashwin, who was "emotional" to be back playing in his home city, said he would have opted to bat too but hoped the pitch remained the same through the 40 overs.
