On this day 13 years ago, MSD's CSK made their IPL debut and the records continue to roll for the MEN IN YELLOW. Having lost their opening encounter, they've bounced back strong, and to win back-to-back games with a huge margin at Wankhede should boost their confidence going forward. Their next meeting is with KKR on Wednesday while RR will face RCB on Thursday. But before all of that, we have Delhi Capitals taking on Mumbai Indians in Chennai tomorrow. Do remember to tune in for that. Thank you for keeping us engaged with lovely comments and feeback. Until next time, it's good night and goodbye from Raju Peethala, Hariprasad Sadanandan , Nikhil Jadhav, Sriram AS and our scorer, Mukesh Gowda . Cheers!! Moeen Ali | Player of the Match: My job here is to try and score as many runs for the team and get a good start. When I went up the order, it wasn't any easy wicket and I'm pleased with both the departments. I thought as a team we played really well and everyone contributed. Once the left-handers came in I knew I had a good chance of bowling whenever the captain needs me. I feel it's a good wicket for the spinners and if you land the ball in the right areas you've always got a chance. MS Dhoni | CSK skipper: I always look at what's the best at that point of time. I felt Sam bowled really well and Deepak I think he tried the knuckleball too much and felt that a good start (with the ball) was important. It was spinning a bit, I don't really mind Jos playing the reverse where it's turning a bit. It's important to have that sixth bowler, it always helps and it was stopping a bit for spinners. There was slightly less dew than the usual. I felt we should have scored more and try to get as many as possible. A lot has changed over the years and right from the start we kept a very good atmosphere and a lot of the bowlers have been under the pump last year but this time they are enjoying bowling on these wickets. When you are playing, you don't really want anyone to say he's unfit. Performances are something that's not guaranteed. I wasn't guaranteeing performances when I was 24, I can't guarantee when I am 40, but at least if people can't point finger at me that he's unfit then that will be a big positive for me . I have to keep up with the younger guys, they are very fast, it's good to challenge them. Sanju Samson | RR captain : I thought it was a good score to chase down but we lost too many wickets in the middle overs. Our bowlers bowled really well, they batted too deep. 10-15 runs extra we gave down the line. We never expected that (turn), the dew didn't come and the ball was still turning, so it was a bit shocking to see. It's very important to maintain a good composure, this format demands us to score at a higher risk rate; hence, it's very normal to get out often. I keep working on the basics and giving myself some time at the centre. He's (Chetan Sakariya) been doing really well, we lost the match but there are a lot of positives. 23:16 local: At the halfway stage, there were murmurs of dew playing a key role in the second half and that CSK's 188 wasn't good enough on what looked like a typical Wankhede pitch. Alas, it was too good to be true. CSK put the squeeze on in the middle overs and buried the game dead during that phase. All of that wouldn't have happened without the brilliant spell of Sam Curran who bowled three inside the powerplay with figures of 2/12. Though Samson's early departure meant exrtra pressure on Jos Buttler, the presence of Shivam Dube only added up to the required run rate as the all-rounder struggled to rotate strike against spinners. Ravindra Jadeja owned the field in the second innings as he got involved in six of the nine RR's dismissals. Jaddu put up a fielding clinic on the field and his athletic abilities were on full display, yet again proving why he's regarded as the best fielder in the world. With Stokes unavailable for the rest of the season, RR will have to find ways to take pressure off Jos Buttler who seemed to have found some touch after an ordinary start to the season. Hang on for the presentations... RR: 143-9 after 20 overs 19.6 Thakur to Mustafizur, no run, angling away outside off and Rahman doesn't bother with it.
