Chennai win against Royal Challengers

Chennai Super Kings put back their title defence on track in a stunning fashion with a massive 92-run win over Bangalore Royal Challengers in an Indian Premier League match in Port Elizabeth on Monday (April 20).

The Chennai side first rattled up a huge 179 for five, riding on Australian Matthew Hayden's blistering 35-ball 65 and then bundled out Bangalore for just 87 in 15.2 overs.

Dhoni won the toss, it was Sri Lankan spin wizard who bamboozled the Bangalore batsmen with his variation and turns as he returned with figures of 3/1Dhoni did not stay for long as he was out for 16 after facing 14 balls to give the first wicket to Praveen Kumar who also scalped Suresh Raina (28; 1X1 1X6), who was dropped by Dale Steyn when on 12. Andrew Flintoff (22 off 13) gave some fireworks towards the end to take 14 runs off last over which also saw Albie Morkel dismissed last ball of innings off Steyn.
