20th Over
That's all from us for today. Do join us tomorrow. Until then, it's goodbye.
This was Chennai's fourth consecutive win, so they are on a roll. Both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings have now won six matches each out of 8 matches they have played.
MS Dhoni is the man of the match. There was no other contender.
Once again Dhoni (67* off 37 balls, 7x4, 4x6) is architect of Chennai Super Kings' win as he has been so many times. Dhoni's record in chases is just mind-boggling.
That's it! Chennai Super Kings win by 5 wickets
