Raina blasted eight huge sixes in his 90 and along with McCullum and Faf du Plessis, Dolphins bowlers are smashed all around the park. In the end it was Ravindra Jadeja who took CSK past the 200 score mark giving the team ample edge to be on the winning side.
Chasing the massive total, South Africa's Dolphins, went to a flying start. Openers van Wyk and Delport slammed CKS bowlers but Mohit Sharma stuck at the right moment. Then came Cody Chetty, he too got busy with scoring runs. At one point of time, Dolphins were competing with the net run rate however, none of the batsmen carried the momentum till the end. Once the top order batsmen were dismissed then wickets staring fall at regular intervals. Eventually Dolphins lost the match by 54 runs.
