Brushing aside their whipping at the Wankhede, the Super Kings brought their A-game to the table to lay the Sunrisers low. Chennai's bowlers followed up a vintage batting display from Suresh Raina (99*) and Michael Hussey (67) with a collective bowling effort to romp to a massive 77 run triumph. It was that kind of a success that would delight coaches- everything went according to the plan.
In pursuit of an improbable 224, Sunrisers lost Shikhar Dhawan(3) in the 2nd over to Dhoni's bullet direct-hit from behind the stumps. Much to the dismay of the packed house, Kumar Sangakkara and Hanuma Vihari, Darren Sammy all fell cheaply. It was 'Man of the match' Suresh Raina, who accounted for Vihari. Bolstered by good old scoreboard pressure, Mohit Sharma capped off yet another neat spell (2-28).
