The Indian Premier League final is here and Express Sport is on hand with all the details. The telling blow came in the form of MS Dhoni, who ran himself out sneaking for an overthrow. "In many ways, I think MS is like the captain of the gully cricket team, he is one of us, he will do anything", Hayden said on Star Sports" special programme for CSK - "The Super Kings Show'. He became the fourth bowler to do so after Lasith Malinga, Amit Mishra, and Piyush Chawla.

With Hyderabad pitch a different one compared to Chennai, they would like to use their four foreigners quota by embedding Mitchell McClenaghan into the scheme of things. Deepak Chahar with 19 wickets has also been productive with the new ball for CSK.

Pollard vented his frustration out on the final two deliveries of the innings, driving both to the boundary rope with an intent that suggested he was trying to burst the ball. For Chennai, Shardul Thakur also picked up two wickets for 23 runs.

Jasprit Bumrah, who bowled his four overs in three spells, was the standout bowler in the match. "We are happy we haven't had many injuries [other than the players at the start] and thanks to the bowling department for that - we are here because of them", Dhoni further added. Both bowlers took some hit early on, but came back strongly to put their team in a good position. Of the final over, he added: " I thought Malinga finished the game out beautifully".

Jasprit Bumrah, for his spell of 4-0-14-2.
