19.5Sharma to Jadhav

That's the game! CHENNAI WIN BY 6 WICKETS! The victory's come with a bit of luck, but they'll take it all the same. Jadhav smashes this full delivery right back at his partner. Bravo tries to get out of the way but it deflects off his foot towards the stumps at his end. It ricochets off them towards covers. The batsmen take off and complete the run before the fielder can throw it at the stumps at the bowler's end.

SIX! Pandey tried his best. Unfortunate it went in vain. Jadhav jumped out of his crease to this slower length ball and lofted it over mid-wicket. The fielder in the deep ran to his right, crossed the rope with the momentum, but parried the ball inside. The umpires went upstairs to check if the save was clean but replays showed that Pandey had his foot touched on the ground before releasing the ball.
