That's it from this one. The second match is almost underway. Join us there. This is Sagar Chawla signing off with Akshay Maanay, Nikhil Jadhav, Pradeep Krishnamurthy, Vineet Anantharaman and our scorer Shashikant Singh.
Ambati Rayudu is Man of the Match
Dhoni, CHN captain: Won't say what we were talking about (chat with Bravo before the last ball), wanted him to change his plan. At times even the best - Bravo - need a bit of advice. That's what they're paid for. What's important is you make mistakes and learn. In league stages you can afford to do that. Where we are at this point, a few mistakes won't dent us. Bowlers will learn out of it. Wickets have gone better. If you compare it to the first few editions of the T20 League, these wickets are very good batting surfaces. Need to give credit to the batsmen. They're getting stronger. They're making plans as to which bowler bowls what. As we get into the knockout stages, we'll see the bowlers coming up with new plans and it won't be easy for the batsmen to score the kind of runs they're scoring so far. What's important is to give them - the younger bowlers - as many games as possible. Deepak swings the ball and lends balance with his batting down the order. Shardul had a few bad games. Last international series wasn't good for him. But he has the right attitude and also the variations. Rayudu was fantastic. One thing was where to make him play. Had to make space for him because I've always rated him highly. I've seen him bat up the order, he looks confident. Whenever he hits the big shots, he maintains the shape. He's somebody who can bat at different numbers. But I prefer him opening the batting.
Stat this: 182 is the lowest total successfully defended this season (full 20 overs games)
19:37 Local Time, 14:07 GMT, 19:37 IST: Some more dance moves from Bravo. The CHN supporters - and there are plenty of them today - are jumping in the stands. This was close. No idea how it got close, but geez it got close. HYD looked to be out of it up until the 14th over mark. But 6 sixes in the space of 14 balls and all of a sudden the pressure was on the Chennai. However, when the situation demanded it, CHN - led by Bravo - stepped up their yorker game towards the end to reign things back, hanging on by the skin of their teeth at the finish. Williamson can be very proud of his own self though. That was some knock. Pathan was brutal too, but they ran out of gas a little too prematurely.
Two balls, 10 needed. Right up Rashid's alley - the way he's going. Long chat between Dhoni and Bravo
Bravo has the responsibility.

Dwayne Bravo to Williamson, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
CHN have really stepped up their yorker game in the last couple of overs. Asking rate jumps over 15 again
Stoppage in play again as the physio looks at Pathan
Shardul Thakur [2.0-0-21-0] is back into the attack
A very concerned Stephen Fleming charges out to have a chat as we have the final time-out! This match has all of a sudden sprung to life. How? What is happening?
Dwayne Bravo, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack
22 off that Karn Sharma over, it's brought the game to life. 66 off five overs doesn't look that improbable
Physio is out to tend to Pathan. Maybe he stretched a bit too much with that last delivery. He's fine to continue though
Ravindra Jadeja [2.0-0-12-0] is back into the attack
Yusuf Pathan, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Karn Sharma to Shakib, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Karn Sharma, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack
Shane Watson [1.0-0-12-0] is back into the attack
This has been good recovery by Hyderabad after the loss of three early wickets. Williamson has got his eye in but needs to up the ante as the required run rate has shot up to 11.18! Turning out to be an exciting contest this. If the home team comes up with something like what CHN did in their last 10 overs, we are in for a thrilling finish. Only if...

Ravindra Jadeja, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack
