Right, then. That is all from this game. But don't go anywhere as the second game of the day between Hyderabad and Delhi is underway at Chennai. Switch over tabs to catch all the action from that game. 

Ravindra Jadeja is the Player of the Match. He has been exceptional with the bat, with the ball, and also out on the field. Well deserved! 

Earlier in the day, some brilliant hitting firstly by Faf du Plessis, and then some mind-blowing batting by Jadeja, in the final over of the game, where they collected 37 runs, saw Chennai finishing with a top total in the first innings. They backed that display with a brilliant performance in the field and with the ball and they won the game comfortably in the end. 

Chennai was on the back foot only in the Powerplay of the run chase and even then, they snared the wicket of Kohli and Padikkal. When Jadeja and Tahir were introduced into the attack, Bangalore completely crumbled. Jadeja was on fire with the bat, with the ball, as he snared 3 wickets, and also scored a run out. Tahir complimented him well. Thakur was also very economical as he ended with figures of 4-0-11-1. Overall, it was a complete performance by the Men in Yellow. 

Bangalore got the start that they needed, but after that, there was not much assistance, from any of the batters. Padikkal went hard in the Powerplay, but after he lost his wicket shortly after, it was a complete implosion from Bangalore. None of the batters could handle the spin twins of Jadeja and Tahir and that means that Chennai ends Bangalore's unbeaten run this season. 

What a display this has been by Chennai! Or should we rather say, what a display this has been from Ravindra Jadeja! He took responsibility towards the end of their batting innings and rocketed Chennai to a big score, and then, with the ball and out on the field, he put up a god-like display which propelled Chennai to the top of the table.

Sam Curran to Mohammed Siraj, NOT OUT!

Review time! Siraj takes the review! Looked to have taken a faint outside edge. No edge, as confirmed by Ultra Edge.

Strategic Time-Out! This contest is all but done and dusted. Chennai will be looking to bowl Bangalore out, whereas the Virat Kohli-led side will want to bat at least their full quota of overs. Mohammed Siraj is the last man in.

Dwayne Bravo to Kyle Jamieson, OUT! RUN OUT! Jamieson goes back now and Bangalore are 9 wickets down. A length ball, around off, Kyle Jamieson looks to push this one through the off side, but the ball takes the inside edge and goes towards square leg, where Imran Tahir collects the ball. He takes aim as the batters wanted one and hits bull's eye at the striker's end. The third umpire confirms that this is out. 

Is that a run out? Imran Tahir has hit the stumps. Yes, it is out!

Dwayne Bravo to Kyle Jamieson, SIX! This could have been another wicket but the sub fielder, Mitchell Santner stands on the ropes, as he took it and so it will be a biggie. A length ball, outside off, Kyle Jamieson slams this one to the long on region, where Santner hops and takes the catch, but lands on the boundary ropes.

Imran Tahir to Yuzvendra Chahal, On middle, worked to the leg side. 

Review time! Tahir was desperate to take this and MS Dhoni obliges! It is for LBW. Ultra Edge shows that there is a nick as there is a spike as the ball is next to the bat. Will remain not out.

Imran Tahir to Yuzvendra Chahal, NOT OUT! Chahal survives! Loopy ball on off, Chahal prods forward and looks to defend but gets hit on the pads. Tahir appeals but nothing from the umpire. They take the review. The third umpire takes a lot of time to decide and finally decides that there was bat first.
