Analysis:

A good pitch to bat on. One side short boundary. Bowlers had tough time to bowl on. The game was raining fours and sixes all through the game.

CSK batted well. The top order scored the runs. But their bowling, fielding and catching let them down. Few catches dropped at the cruicial point helped MI.

MI on the other hand, also did not bowl well as expected. They gave away 80+ runs in the last five overs. Their death bowlers were not effective today.
But their batsman managed to score the runs.
It was Kieron Pollard who led the run chase, and well he did that in style.
Kieron Pollard now holds the record for fastest 50 of 17 balls in this tournament.

If you get a chance do watch the replay or highlights of this match. You will be amazed with all the power hitting.
