That's all we have from this one. Until next time, it's a goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Sriram, Nikhil Jadhav, MS Ramakrishnan and Mukesh Gowda. Gaikwad, Player of the Match: Means a lot (his highest IPL score). Little bit disappointed couldn't finish it well. Think it was little bit two paced, little bit low bounce. Scoring big shots was difficult. It was all about how you hit gaps and hit over the fielders. Just planned who is the better bowler on this surface, who is not. One or two bowlers had a bit of an off day, cashed in on them. Just want to keep performing each and every match. Dhoni: The batting was superb. But that doesn't mean the bowling was not good. It was a surprisingly good wicket. Whenever we come to Delhi we never expect a wicket like this. It was coming on nicely, there was nothing for the spinners as well.Good thing was there was no dew. Last night we felt 170 was just below par if there's no dew. Brilliant opening partnership. Addressing the problem (how the change from last season). Whenever you start the tournament, you may or may not face issues in playing XI. The earlier you settle the better. Another factor was 5-6 months we were out of cricket. Nothing was allowed. It's not that you could go on your own and practice. That also makes it difficult. Change of quarantine, was slightly longer. Lot of factors. Overall if I have to sum it up, the players have taken more responsibility this year. You will be facing adverse things but ultimately it boils down to how each individual rises to the occassion and gives the extra 10 percent for the team. Last 8-10 years we've not changed lot of players so they know our approach. Also we appreciate the players not playing a lot. Only way you can put it forward is having those nice interactions. Just try to have the frame of mind where if you get the opportunity you'll be ready. Keeping the dressing room atmosphere healthy is important. It's not an easy thing. When you're at the top level you want to play. Have to give extra credit to the players who've not played so far. Highest win% against an opponent in IPL (10+ mat) : 78.57 MI vs KKR (22 wins/28 mat) 73.33 CSK vs SRH (11/15) 70.59 SRH vs Punjab (12/17) 70.00 Punjab vs Deccan (7/10) Faf du Plessis : Feels good (to wear the orange cap) but winning games is nice. I think the partnership with myself and Rutu has been pretty productive. If you can start well in T20s, and with our batting lineup, it's a very good sign. I went back to try and make sure my basics were good. I looked at what was the thing I did well last year and have been doing the same this year. One or two tweaks were made from last season to this season. It was a pretty good wicket. 170 was a touch under what they needed to get. 190 would've been a good score. But when you start quick like that, the rest of the innings plays out comfortably. There was some good pace on the wicket, it slowed down as the ball got old but overall a really good cricket wicket. We got a good balance. We made some adjustments from last season. Our batting depth is good. We've got guys like Robin Uthappa sitting on the bench, so it's a good balance. The biggest change we've got is a bit more balance in the squad and the guys are putting their hand up as well. But there is definitely more depth. I am disappointed, haven't been getting many catches. Jaddu has been stealing the show, he's the superman at the moment, but happy to grab one tonight. David Warner: I take full responsibility for the way I batted, it was really slow, found a lot of fielders and I got frustrated. The way Manish batted was exceptional. Kane got us to a respectable total, but I take full responsibility as it was a total below par. I probably hit 15 good shots to the fielders, I couldn't do much about it. They are the ones that make or break your innings. It gets frustrating¬†as a batsman when you find the fielders. We had 170 on the board but we couldn't take powerplay wickets and it's always tough (to come back) on a good surface like this. Their two openers batted really well, but we fought well in the end. Felt like you could squeeze a bit after those wickets but they were always ahead in the game. He (Kane) was going to bat four no matter what, that's where he bats, that is his job, just that I soaked up too many balls. It's about being positive, it's a good batting surface. We have a day game here as well. 170 is about a par total at night, but things could be different in a day game. From a batting perspective we need to find the gaps and need to be positive. We are a bunch of fighters. The guys will be hurt by this, but they'll be up and about. 22:57 Local Time, 17:27 GMT, 22:57 IST: CSK regain top spot with a hugely convincing win. What a glaring contrast we've seen today in the batting efforts of both teams. Where Warner struggled for timing all innings and scored his slowest IPL fifty, the CSK openers put on a display of timing and finesse to set the stage for what turned out to be a cruise. Warner is saying right now on air that he takes full responsibility for this. Just couldn't get going on a pitch that was a belter. Manish Pandey was more fluent in their partnership of 106, but his strike rate wasn't very high either.

Five wins in a row now for CSK - the juggernaut is back. That's all we have from this one. Until next time, it's a goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Sriram, Nikhil Jadhav, MS Ramakrishnan and Mukesh Gowda.
