With another home victory, Chennai bats its way through to the play-offs. Now the team can start focusing on reaching the top two slots of the league table.
1. Team Management: Finally, the team has started thinking and playing the match fearlessly. Extra batsmen in Bravo does make the team a lot more aggressive with its batting.
2. Dhoni: It was great to see Dhoni - the free flowing batsman, who attracted attention initially.
3. Badri: As usual, Badri played the sheet anchor role to the hilt
4. Bravo: He is slowly getting his 'mojo' back. In another 2 or 3 matches, he should be playing to his full potential.
5. Ashwin & Raina: Both bowled beautifully. It was great to see Raina filling up the third spinner's role beautifully. Raina & Ashwin's bowling would be crucial in the matches played in Chennai
1. Vijay: We have not still seen Vijay of IPL 2010 form. His form would be crucial in the matches against top four teams.
Fan's Man of the Match - Dhoni - for out-batting the opposition out of the match.
Now the team gets a much needed rest..
