Chennai Super Kings defeat Kings XI Punjab

Chennai Super kings have proved themselves champions of the tournament after a bad start initially this season. They defeated the Kings XI by 12 runs. CSK put up a total of 185 after a rain delayed match. The overs were reduced to 18. Skipper MSDhoni and Matthew Hayden were on fire. Kings XI almost closed in while chasing the total when MSDhoni gambled by bringing in Suresh Raina to bowl towards the end of the match. The two overs he bowled was exceptional reducing the pace of the match completely with jus 8 runs for 2 overs. And Raina was the man of the hour making it easy for CSK to win.
