Chasing 169, DD lost Virender Sehwag (0) in the very first over of the run-chase as he edged Mohit Sharma to Dhoni behind the stumps. Johan Botha smashed a six and a boundary off Jason Holder in the fourth over. Unmukt Chand (16) then launched Mohit Sharma over the ropes before top-edging an attempted slog-sweep only to find Holder.

Botha (23) was then caught by Holder off Ravichandran Ashwin in the seventh over. The wickets continued to tumble as Kedar Jadhav (2) was caught behind off Albie Morkel in the eighth over. DD were left reeling with half their side gone as Ben Rohrer (4) flicked Morkel to Ashwin at square-leg. At the halfway stage, DD were 65 for five, requiring 104 runs.

David Warner played a lone hand, hitting Morkel for a maximum in the 12th over. Roelof van der Merwe (14) perished trying to up the run rate as he was caught by Suresh Raina at long-on. Needing 59 from 24 balls, Warner (44) was seventh out, caught by Murali Vijay at the boundary off Morkel. Dwayne Bravo then struck twice – to get the Purple Cap; he first got past the defenses of Irfan Pathan (4) before having Ashish Nehra (0) caught behind. DD eventually fell short by 33 runs. 

Earlier CSK won the toss and elected to bat first. Vijay was given a lucky break as Kedar Jadhav put him down on two off the bowling of Nehra. Michael Hussey then smashed consecutive boundaries off Irfan Pathan in the fourth over. Hussey and Vijay went after Botha hitting him for two boundaries and a six as CSK made 47 from their Power Play. Vijay (31) was the first batsman to be dismissed after Ben Rohrer threw down the stumps directly. Hussey (26) top edged a pull off Umesh Yadav and was caught by Sehwag. Raina (7) followed him caught by Warner off van der Merwe.

Dhoni walked in to bat in the 11th over and launched Pathan over the ropes in the 12th over. He was given a reprieve on 14 when Siddarth Kaul dropped a return catch. Dhoni then smashed Nehra for a massive six before following it up with a boundary. Yadav bowled Ravindra Jadeja (24) to leave CSK four down in the 17th over. Dhoni however continued attacking, hitting two sixes and two boundaries in the 18th and 19th over. CSK finished with 168 for four.

Quotes from presentation

"Disappointing losing today," says David Warner. "Thought the bowlers bowled well in the top six, but didn't get wickets in the middle, which let them get away. It's tough, but you have to play with a clear mind. You still have to win the matches for the folks back in Delhi. Hope the Dharamsala wicket is nice and juicy."

"I try to keep myself blank when preparing," says MS Dhoni, also the Man of the Match. "I try to visualise. The bus ride. I like the stadium at least 15-20 minutes from the hotel so I can visualise during the ride. Each and every side has strengths and weakness. We have balanced that well. In each of six years we have made the playoffs. That is a big achievement both for the team and the owners."
