20OUTMohit Sharma to W Saha, out Caught by Dwayne Smith!! The final delivery produces a wicket. Saha completely mistiming the pull off a back-of-the-hand slower delivery, Smith runs in from deep square and takes the catch. Punjab finish on 226. W Saha c Dwayne Smith b Mohit Sharma 6(4) [6s-1]226/6
19.3OUTMohit Sharma to W Saha, out D Miller Run Out!! Mahendra Singh Dhoni hits direct to catch a diving Miller short. Saha looked to swing a slower delivery out of the ground and missed, they wanted to steal a quick bye and MS was too alert and too sharp to that possibility. An under-arm flick and the ball hits timber. D Miller run out (Dhoni) 38(19) [4s-5 6s-1]225/5
19.2SIXMohit Sharma to W Saha, SIX, length and Saha has some fun. In the arc for the swing for deep square leg and he doesn't miss out. Got under the length to pull/swing across and bashes it over the fielder. The fielder was placed for the catch, but he could only watch the ball sail over his head225/4
19OUTNehra to Bailey, out Bowled!! Mahendra Singh Dhoni claps that wicket. High full toss, Bailey's eyes lit up, but he swung too early and missed. The ball clattered into the stumps. Bailey walks off with a smile - why won't he smile, for he knows that his side is in an almost impregnable position. But then one has gotten used to seeing Bailey smile all the time, nothing unusual about that. Bailey b Nehra 1(2)218/4
18.2FOURNehra to D Miller, FOUR, low full toss, dragged down to deep midwicket, in the gap and it's a boundary. Miller taking it on now. The boundaries just don't stop coming215/3
18.1OUTNehra to Sehwag, out Caught by du Plessis!! The Sehwag show has come to an end. Look at the send-off given. Each and every Chennai player walk up to him and shake his hand. That's the effect of his innings - simply mind-blowing. Preity Zinta is screaming her lungs out. The Punjab dugout stand up as one and pat him on the head. What an ovation too from the crowd. Amidst all this, one shouldn't forget the catch - it was a good one, for the fielder was coming from sweeper coveer, that must have distracted Faf, but he kept his nerve even as he tumbled to ground after catching it two-handed. Nehra must be thanking is lucky stars, for the full toss got a wicket. Sehwag was down the track and was aiming over cover, but got it high on the bat. End of one of the all-time great innings in the Indian T20 League. Sehwag c du Plessis b Nehra 122(58) [4s-12 6s-8]211/3

20SIXAwana to Dhoni, SIX, it's a six, but it's Punjab who win! Bailey is all smiles. Sehwag is on the field, he is hugged by Bailey. Preity Zinta can be heard saying - "Oh my god", lots of hugs in the Punjab camp. Bailey wants to hug Sehwag one more time and the hero of tonight obliges. Coming back to the last delivery - a high full toss was belted miles into the stands at wide long-on - reminiscent of Dhoni's winning hit in the 2011 World Cup final here at the Wankhede. But this time in a losing cause. Maybe he just vented all his frustration on that poor white cherry.202/7
19.5FOURAwana to Dhoni, FOUR, heaved wide of the deep midwicket fielder. The dive didn't help him. Just one more ball to go196/7
19.3FOURAwana to Dhoni, FOUR, slashed down to third man. Right off the toe-end and down to the fence. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a look at his willow after playing that. All over bar the shouting now192/7
19FOURA Patel to Dhoni, byes, FOUR, Saha misses the take. Fired down leg, beats Dhoni's big hit and escapes Saha's grasp. It went between the bat and the body of Mahendra Singh Dhoni which must have unsighted the keeper187/7
18.4SIXA Patel to Dhoni, SIX, still the match is just about alive. Just about. Dhoni comes down the track and connects one, launches it way over long-off. Got under the length nicely that time183/7
18.3FOURA Patel to Dhoni, FOUR, flat-batted powerful pull wide of the flying Miller at long-on. He leathered that. But all too late?177/7
