Moises Henriques is named the Man of the Match for his spectacular all-round performance of 49 off 23 balls and 3/23. That's it from this match. Do switch over to the other tab for the second big game of the day between Mumbai and Lions.

Chennai started off slowly but managed to up the scoring rate once Faf du Plessis got a look in. Along with Raina, they gave Chennai a very good lead to take the match. As the saying once again plays its role, 'Catches win Matches', the turning point came when Steven Smith took a very tough catch in the deep to send Suresh Raina packing. From there on, the momentum shifted towards Sydney. 21 runs were needed off Starc's last over but Chennai fell short by quite a margin. Moises Henriques took three wickets and along with Steven Smith, proved to be the big difference in the sides today.

Sydney have managed to outclass Chennai today, not by a very big margin but still effective though. They put up a strong batting display with the top-order firing big time. Moises Henriques' gem ensured that Sydney cross 180.
